    So I really didn’t get to wear it much. I sat in a tree this year with it 30* ish. Sitka thin poly and heavy fleece under it, can’t remember if I had a puffy under or not. Froze my butt off and it wasn’t even cold. I know it is more for the mountain hunter not tree stand but my body gets super hot while moving and then super cold when I stop. I have to do some real hard experimenting to find my got to.

    I do really like this jacket though. Bomb proof. If you haven’t tried one on, it’s like soft shell meets goretex. I will look for another when funds are there. I think you will like it with a puffy under when real cold.

    Awesome, thanks for the input! I guess when I'm glassing for muleys (hopefully a moose this year) here in Idaho I'll have to have a puffy and the heavy weight hoody too. I have the jet stream which I'll probably wear when I'm hiking.

    Not sure about the jetstream. I am in Virginia so the shops are very limited. Can’t try anything on. I would’t carry both the cold front and jetstream. Just wear a t-shirt under the cold front while moving.

    Good luck.

    Sure. Hope it helps.

    This jacket isn’t thin like military goretex. It’s thick. You’ll like it.

    Shane , I am like you in body hot/cold. I freeze when I sit.. feet are like ice blocks and are cold while still in the truck before the hunt. After hunting for 50 years in upstate NY (cold) ----down clothing and with wool(King of the Mountain) works best, and now the new electric clothing added to that-I'm toast. Walking around I sweat and get hot quick--have to be careful-if I sweat and sit--well... I can't ! I go home if wet--elk hunting west is difficult for me, I'm either hot or cold.
