RedHead 1856 Fleece Windproof Lined Camo Jacket for Men
purchased this jacket and matching pants in late November . with temps in mid 20s I sat comfortably in my tree stand and took a nice 8 point . now they are my lucky camo .and the camo worked better than I thought it would because I had several does and fawns come by at 10 yards before the buck got came by

I bought the 1856 Fleece Windproof lined jacket and the accompanying pants from Bass Pro early this fall, because the price was good and hunting in North and South Dakota for deer, I needed some better gear. I first tested this rig in mid-November in northern South Dakota, in temperatures that started in -15 and didn't top 5 degrees, accompanied by a 20 mph wind, with gusts of up to 40 mph. Naturally, I layered a set of fleece long johns, a good shirt and a wool commando-style sweater under the 1856 fleece, but I was actually comfortable hunting deer in this all day long. Took the 2nd biggest buck of my life (a 5 x 5 whitetail) to christen these items, so I'd call them outstanding gear, especially for the money.

My old fishing jacket gave up the ghost, and I needed something to take its place. This jacket is great for running around in the boat on the cool mornings here in the mountains. Jacket is warm and keeps out the wind. Maybe the camo will hide me from the fish.

Love the Jacket (can't find pants)
I love this jacket.
I wear a 48R suit jacket and the L fits nice and trim with little extra on the chest and arms, great for archery. The inside is smooth great for layering. It is not a heavy or extremely warm alone but with layers it is plenty except for rain or very cold days.
I bought the last size Large at the store and have not been able to find the pants in Large (I've even checked auction sights). The quality is top notch and pocket are well placed. Love the armpit zippers. I hope this is offered in more pieces next season. I really like the classic camo pattern and hope they expand to rain wear and more (a hat would be nice).
I didn't notice the smell others reported.
