The insulating layers of the Blizzard Buddy suit include a durable water repellent, truesuede material, and waterproof and breathable membrane along with insulation and fleece lining.
This suit utilizes the quietest zipper YKK has to offer to ensure that the arm slots are virtually silent when opening and closing it, because if your hunting suit scares your trophy buck away... being warm is going to be the last thing you’ll care about.
The Blizzard Buddy is treated with a special durable water repellent (DWR) coating, making them resistant to wind, water, and snow. Each suit is also lined with insulation, keeping you dry and warm in temperatures as low as -20°F.
Blizzard Buddy saved me during the last few weeks of Ohio deer season, with temps in the single digits. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to stay warm in the woods. It’s worth the money!
I was on a 5 day hunt in Saskatcewan the first week of November. Day one the teperature was 10 below and combined with my Sitka clothing my Blizzard Buddy kept me comfy ALL day. Never was cold. Was able to get in and out quickly when I needed to. Easy to carry to the stand, easy to put on. VERY PLEASED. Booked the same hunt for next year and I’m taking my Blizzard Buddy for sure. Thanks for a great product.

This is an update to a previous review. Yesterday 1/20/19 . Was the last day of the Illinois archery season. I am amazed at how warm I was with just one set of base layers and noninslated bibs. I was 25ft up the tree the temperature was 21 degrees 10 mph wind out of North West and a windchill of 13 degrees. I was able to hunt comfortably but the important thing in hunting in cold weather like yesterday it kept me safe.Show less
