    Wool ain't cheap! But there's nothing like wool. Wool insulates even when it's wet. If you want to stay warm in a cold wet environment get wool. Nothing like it.

    I thought wool was a damn good water wick?

    I have gotten my wool hunting pants soaking wet(with WATER) and just peeled them of in my stand, wrung them out, and put them back on, good to go, except I smelled like a wet dog.

    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    Got the pants today, good kit, not as heavy as my Columbias', but some long underwear and the kid will be in business, they are a little long on him, but if he grows some more he should have some pants that will last him a while, can always get them hemmed.

    With all that oil in it? All I can tell you is that's why the Navy outfitted sailors with wool. They may not be now, but they used to.

    I've got a heavy wool Outfitters parka and pants at Cabelas ten years ago. Living in Texas I don't get a chance to wear them very often. Having said that, when the temps drop and winds start to howl there's nothing better and nothing warmer than wool. I used them on a Kansas deer hunt a few years back, teens outside, strong winds the deer were bedded down and not moving but I was warm and snug in my stand! Wool it doesn't get much better!
    Distance is not an issue, but the wind can make it interesting!

    Sheep, Bears, Elephants, Lions, Tigers, Wooly Mammoths! Oh wait, you might appear amorous to a Wool Mammoth! That doesn't sound like something that would have a good outcome.
