Both garments are designed with the whitetail stand hunter in mind; the outer fabric is a quiet, brushed material featuring a Windstopper™ laminate, and there are some smartly designed pockets for stashing gear and a front hand-warmer pouch. I had trouble wrapping my mind around the front zipper, which runs diagonally across the chest instead of the traditional straight up and down design. But once I zipped the thing closed, the light bulb came on; this design prevents the jacket from billowing in front, which is ideal for bowhunting. Indeed, for a coat so warm, the Stratus fit very well and allowed me to draw my bow freely. The bibs--I love bibs for cold weather because they keeps my lower back warm--feature the same articulated fit, and also sport a full-length side zipper so I can slip them easily on and off over boots.
