Anyone have the jacket yet? i like the price point and features (quiet, windproof, pocket in right places, knee pads). Don’t love the camo, but i have a mish mosh of handme down stuff, and feel motion is more important. I also assumes scentlok is NOT going to allow me to NOT play the wind. It just seems like good value.…if the pants coming next month were bibs with knee pads, i would have pulled the trigger already on the jacket. Instead, I’ll wait for reviews of both, then decide to trigger this suit, or try a quality set of bibs for rut as my first quality hunting apparel purchase. Right now I’m running a combo of Walmart, cabelas garage sale, and huntworth clearance, all different patterns. The idea of a quality suit of the same camo that keeps me quiet and cozy in the tree and MIGHT help with scent control, designed by Eberhart, and just over 300 for both pieces is intriguing for someone like me starting from scratch.

I have the jacket. Looks like it’s good quality. I read that you do not need to order big to be able to layer underneath. I agree with that, I ordered my regular clothing size and it’s big enough to layer under. It looks and feels warmer than I expected. It should be good as far as silent movement goes. I obviously haven’t hunted in it yet but my first impressions are positive.

For those of you that ordered the jacket and were waiting on the pants they are in stock. I ordered a pair today.

I am new to bow hunting and saddles but I ordered this suit because I have learned so much from listening to Eberhart over the past few months. Because I trust his character and intentions I chose to leverage his experience to make up for my lack of it. A few notes from a newb:

1. It sizes perfectly. I have fairly long legs (34-35” inseam with a 34” waist)and while the large pants fit a little loose around the waist (the adjustable straps make up for that) the length was spot on. I normally wear an XL jacket (6’2”, 230lbs) and the jacket also fits perfectly with just enough room for a puffy if required…

2. This stuff is freaking hot. I means seriously insulated and I can’t imagine a scenario that it were cold enough to require anything more than a base layer but it rarely touches the negative digits where I live.

3. The camo is much lighter in person than it looks in pictures or videos. While it is a lighter shade, it still doesn’t have enough silhouette breaking contrast for my taste.

4. Quality construction. The stitching and overall quality of the garments are on par with most high end performance apparel companies.

I have only given it a cursory examination as the suit is only applicable for late season or during a severe cold snap mid season where I live but I wanted to share my initial thoughts in the hopes it might help someone with their purchase decision.
