    welcome to the board. I'm not sure where you're from or how cold it gets there, but here in WI I gun hunt in as cold as -20 (not happily, but if it's that cold, I do it). I personally would not go for a heated suit--I've never tried them, which is an important caveat, but thus far I've done everythgni by layering rather than putting all my eggs in one basket, as it were.....

    Just my 2 cents, hopefully you'll get someone who's tried it though and can speak from experience. If not here, check a few other hunting sites, and even some ice-fishing boards--those are folks who know about needing to keep warm.

    :welcome: to the forum. Glad you joined the ranks.:wave: :laugh:

    I have not ever used a HBS but talked to a fella from I think Canada last year and he said he loves his. If your buddy likes his and you think you may and they are on sale.....................then whats holding you back??:laugh:

    I havent used one either, but I seen a thread on AT I believe that showed how to make one with an old sleeping bag. You might want to try a cheap alternative before shellin' out the bucks...
