I am from Texas and I was up here in Ohio hunting with Coshocton County Outfitters. The temperature had got down into the negative numbers and I was freezing. Mike the owner of CCO told me I needed to go get one of these suits and I am glad I did. I ended up hunting through the rain, snow and wind and I was not disappointed in the performance of this suit. I ended up getting this buck on the last day of season this year he scored 154 1/2.
I bought my suit this year. It is great. I went to Ohio to hunt in 15 degree morning. No problem staying warm. Only thing is that I wish I had more room around the shoulders. I give it a 9 out of 10.
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.
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!
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.
My Blizzard Buddy kept me warm in sub-zero temperatures, but more impressive is the functionality of the suit. - Dave Kopp, Stark County - 265” buck
The problem with many of the over-the-clothes suit options for cold-weather hunting is that they aren’t really designed for bowhunters. This is not the case with the Blizzard Buddy. This fleece-lined, ultra-quiet suit is built in such a way that bowhunters can easily (and silently) zip open the arm slots and shoot without worrying about interference from bulk. It’s also made in the U.S.A., outfitted with interior pockets and rolls up into a small, portable unit that can be carried anywhere late-season critters dwell. - Grand View Outdoors
Might seem like overkill but it won't be if you're out there and the temperature never gets above freezing. The Hunting Suit is designed to allow bowhunters to stay warm, and if need be, maneuver into shooting position. It's available in a variety of sizes, and can be a lifesaver on long, frigid days when the north wind won't stop blowing and the first few snowflakes of winter start falling. -Bowhunter
In the cold late season when the mature bucks are on their feet feeding, you can bet I will be in the tree stand, warm in my Blizzard Buddy. - Buck Owen, Wayne County - 256” buck
