I asked this earlier in Poll form and maybe that was the problem. No one made comments. After someone on here made a good point about batteries only lasting a few hours and not all day (I'm not worried about battery failure because I would just go home or back to the truck) and the fact that I want to start making some longer sits I have decided an IWOM, HBS, or Warmbag would be better than my 2000 gram Cabelas Inferno pac boots, Stand Hunter Bibs, and Stand Hunter Parka aren't keeping me warm, even in 50-60' degree temps. I have a spinal cord injury that makes it hard for me to stay warm. Lately, my Thermacell Insoles, Zippo Hand Warmers with Muff and a disposable heat packet to the kidneys has worked, but it hasn't gotten too cold yet. In these temps I'm still freezing, but as long as my hands are relatively warm and so are my feet I can suffer through it. I want to wait to the middle of next season so if it doesn't work I can return it within the 3 month return policy that I believe they all have?
*** If you only have experience with 1 or 2 of these items or have friends who use them tell me yours or their experience, the positives & negatives of each, and which one you would buy. ***
So which would you choose and why?
What are the plus's and minus's of each?
I know some people have worried about the durability of the HBS and putting your boots in it which may tear it up. I obviously don't want that problem. Are they all waterproof, windproof, durable, and quiet?
