    I hope they come out with another one. This was a great concept especially if a guy is sitting.

    • Chris,
      Although, I was never able to wear one on the stand in the cold (back ordered), the concept is awesome! I have faith in that Sitka will resolve this issue. Thanks for stopping by and posting!
