Like the title says I need a good upland jacket. Something with some warmth to it. I looked at the cabelas instinct one and didn’t care for it. It was too light.

About 10 minutes from the truck, I usually no longer want an upland jacked

Orvis makes the best upland jacket -- light but warm, waterproof--zipper vents, sleeves cover back of hand, kidney flap, etc. However it is more expensive than just about everything on the market. Had mine 2 years and it has held up. really like the kidney flap-- no chill up your back when you bend over or exit a vehicle.

Filson tin cloth upland jacket with zip in wool liner. Pricey but will turn the briars and last forever.

Yep, good thermals and layers go a long way! Heavy coats hinder shooting and are a PITA to carry while trying to walk up birds. My standard for Ks. pheasant is: PolarTec thermals (or other good ones) under pants and a heavy flannel shirt, light down vest and hat/gloves as needed. Birds go on bird rings. It’s a bit different in late January!

It depends on what you need. If blaze orange is a must, the filson is not the one. If you hunt the brush country in the cat claws, that filson coat and a pair of tin cloth chaps is like wearing armor.

I bought a Browning jacket two years ago and it is awesome. Hunted some snow and wind in KS last Feb and it kept me plenty warm with a base layer, shirt and vest. I like the fact it is not heavily insulated so you can layer up. Really was a great wind blocker for sure

Here is the one I bought.

I like wool shirts. Not bulky at all. Theres different weight wool shirts. Woolrich is a good one. Wear a quality thermal shirt underneath. Take it off if it gets too warm and wear the wool shirt. I can wear a heavy wool shirt and thermal shirt in low 20s. And i am a skinny guy. A light wool shirt when warmer

I've been using a Sitka blaze orange compressed fleece jacket for a while now. I don't think they offer it any longer but it cuts the wind and cold down into the 40's quite well along with decent water resistance. It packs up small and I store it in the back pocket of my strap vest when I need to shed a layer. When it comes time to replace it I'll look at Filson and First Lite for a replacement.

Been using a LLBean waxed upland coat for about 4 years and my only complaint is the shell holders in the pockets are way too loose. Other than that it's been great so far.

I am in Tallahassee working. Bride and I went to Thomasville, GA Sat afternoon. I went in to Kevin's and met him. He said wait here and I will be right. He comes by and saws follow me. I did not know where I was going. He took me to his other gun room upstairs. I do not think I have ever seen a H & H or a Purdy. He probably had at least 20+ $100,000 shotguns. There were 2 gauge H & H in a carrying case that he was talking to his gun guy and said they were $125,000 each. I bought my house years ago for $85,000. Someone mentioned I would have to give him my home and take a loan out......to get one of those .......
