I purchased my Chamberlin some time ago but wanted to really put it through the paces on a variety of adventures before giving an honest review. I've used it coyote hunting in the middle of winter and hunting muleys in the high country above timberline in late fall. I purchased a water proof bag to stuff it into and the Chamberlin and Uncompahgre bottoms are with me at all times if there is any possibility of being cold at all. Although I use this jacket mostly for glassing and still hunting, I look at it as a vital piece of safety equipment that should always be with me in my pack. It's extremely warm and light obviously, but it gives me a nice piece of mind that should the weather turn south and get crazy, I've got my Chamberlin in my pack. When you are doing much hiking though you will be shedding it quick most of the time. Quality is excellent. 5 stars for me
The fit is pretty typical for the way most coats fit me. I have a slim build so the a large coat is a little big on my body but the sleeves are the correct length.
As stated in other reviews the shell of the coat is a thin material...just like other puffy coats. You definitely need a shell over the top of this jacket if your going to move around.
I purchased this for hunting out of a backpack and I wont be able to use it for that until next fall. I have used it for whitetail hunting in Nebraska. I sat for a couple hours @ 16 degrees without moving and was comfortable. In fact if I put the hood on it was a little too warm. I had a base layer shirt, vest, and a light shell over the jacket.
I really like this jacket. I have been using it as a lifestyle piece in the cold Minnesota winters. It's the warmest jacket I have ever owned. Warmer than my big ol' LL Bean Wool Mackinaw and a fraction of the weight. The hood is fantastic and collar are fantastic. I continue to be just tickled with the FL fit. I can order a small and get a good fit in both the body and the sleeves. Since I am a lanky man the sleeves are probably a little shorter than FL intended, but still a great fit compared to jackets I have previously had.
Extremely warm, lightweight, and packable. DO NOT WEAR AS AN EXTERIOR LAYER!!!! Rubbed my back on a mahogany branch and ripped it to shreds! Totally unacceptable for the cost of the jacket and something that is supposed to be used in the outdoors. If you only pack this in or wear something over the top it will do fine, but don't wear it where it can rub on anything! Dissappointed!
I purchased this jacket for a Wyoming Elk hunt. First time I wore it, the zipper ripped the shell in the pocket. They covered that under warranty. Got the replacement, wore it once in a tree stand in PA. Walked out of the woods and the sleeve caught on a thorn. Most fabrics would break the thorn off and maybe leave a small pin hole. This ripped two 4-5” slices through the outer shell and down went flying. If you want a $360 camouflage jacket for fashion, go ahead and buy it, but if you plan on hunting with it, buy from another company. They won’t warranty this damage and now I’m stuck with an expensive piece of crap I can’t do anything with. I asked to exchange it for a cheaper, less fragile jacket, but they refuse to work with me. I even offered to eat the difference in cost! Frankly I will not be buying anything from this company again.
