Cabela's 4 in 1 Dry Plus Parka Review:
I am cursed with a genetic history of poor circulation, which creates a constant challenge: for me to keep from shivering often while hunting. I tried on multiple outfits and settled on the 4 in 1 Dry Plus parka and bibs from Cabela’s. I love getting out for late season whitetails, winter coyote hunting, and even some ice fishing.
I first tested the parka on a Fall antelope hunt in Western South Dakota. An early snow storm moved in. We started out in 10 degree weather with snow and wind. Needless to say I not only kept warm, I had to unzip and take the coat off at times to cool down.
I spent part of two days belly crawling and laying on a ridge in snow waiting for the antelope. I was able to stay warm all day -- no exceptions.
The zipper is high quality and the pockets are deep and very functional. The hood is pretty standard, but certainly does its job.
Beyond the warmth, I give the 4 in 1 Dry Plus parka, paired with the matching bibs, bonus points for being waterproof, comfortable, and quiet.
If you want to stay warm, I highly recommend the Cabela’s 4 in 1 Dry Plus parka.
