    Warmbag or IWOM

    I was dead set on the Warmbag($249), but then my dad went and got the IWOM at the eastern show... apparently i can get the show discoount if he refers me ($199 instead of $299) He hasn't recieved his yet, and I am getting itchy to order one or the other soon.

    Lets hear some reviews...tell me which way to go!!!

    Looks pretty neat, but your arms will be the first thing to get cold.

    The method of bag suits is to keep your extremities all bundled up inside to retain your core heat. The sleave-type suit is isolating your arms away from the core heat the same as coveralls. Since your legs are bagged, that suit will be warmer than coveralls but not as warm as a bag-type design.

    Over a long extreme cold day, you will be losing a lot of heat through the arms.

    Agreed! Your upper body isnt going to be much warmer than just wearing a parka..

    I think I agree with you guys. Plus, I like less bulk on my arms when it is time to shoot!! Thanks for reaffirming my decision!!

    i used a set of coveralls 3 sizes bigger for years.i would just slip my arms out the sleeves to grab my gun/bow.then just pull them in.but keeping your legs inside is more warmer.
    same with your arms.

    warmbag has arms inside if you like or you can stick them out.some stands are really small and you need your arms out to feel safe or hold on.IWOM has arms out all time ,i dont like that idea when it real cold but that suit is close to WB .cant seem to find out what its made of .

    Anyone know what size person a medium warm bag would fit? The Large is up to 6'2". Will the medium fit up to 5'10"?

    i cant see why you wouldnt go buy a $30 sleeping bag and get in it zipped up the whole way, then just stand up and shoot, unzip, shoot or whatever.

    Personally I wouldn't mess around and I would go with a Heater Body Suit.

    I used the HBS for three years; It works well. But, now it sits on a hanger in my closet while I sit in the woods in my Warmbag.

    There are good and bad points for both systems, but for me the Warmbag is better. My feet and legs stay warmer in the Warmbag (without using overbooties like the HBS) and it is ten times easier to use than the HBS.

    Just my two cents; your's may vary.

    I'm 5' 11", 190 and got a large. I had a medium, but the shoulders were too tight to draw my bow freely. I'd recommend going big if you're afraid. That way, if you decide to wear a jacket inside and leave the arms unzipped, your not over-bulking things. Plus you don't want it to fit tight. I'd rather have it draped and loose than too tight.

    Its a pretty cool feeling to walk to your stand in long johns, jeans, and a hoodie while there's snow on the ground and the wind chill is gonna be in the teens to single digits.

    i used a wal-mart kids sleeping bag for 16 dollars in camo for years.i sewed a set of suspenders to hold bag up.

    but you were not covered above shoulders and you had to wear heavy jacket.
    with WB you can dress light,I LIKE THAT A LOT BETTER.I hate heavy coat .most sleeping bags are not waterproof.with WB you should be able to use it in 40s down to freezing and stay dry.most sleeping bags are NOT windproof,they do help cut wind tho.

    i thought they did away with MEDIUM.thought it was just large /xlarge and 1 size bigger.i ordered a large/xlarge.i am 6/1 210.joe felt the xlarge could be big for me.my brother is 6/2 so i thought the x/large would be better for him.

    the bags are same width inside from what i understand.like the m/l/xl are only longer.large is good to 6/2 and above that is xl to 6/5.

    me i would get LARGE.

    I found a good deal on a medium used one (saves me $100) but now I'm afraid it may be too tight. I'm 5'10" about 210 a weight lifter. At 5'11" was it too tight because of height and were you wearing insulated clothing underneath. I'll be using mine in Canada so I'll need to layer underneath.

    whenver i buy i always buy larger but medium could be fine for you.only way to know is try it out.if not i would not buy it.

    joe lets you return the WB if you bought it from him for larger size.i ordered 2 ,one is large other a x/large.you really dont want a lot of clothes on under it or that could possibly defeat how it is to works and make it tighter.

    i think he stated that.do reasearch on here,i believe some bought the MEDIUM and they commented on it.on drop joe a pm and he could help you.

    I got mine(warmbag) in the mail a few days ago... tried it on and I am a little concerned with how it drapes over the shoulders. feels very restricting, i dont understand why the zipper hole wouldnt go to the top of your shoulder. I am going to have to tie it up or make some modifications. seems like it will be really warm tough

    curious if others have had this issue and how they addressed it???
