The 6 Best Insulated Hunting Bibs of 2022

Hot Shot insulated waterproof hunting bib

Insulated hunting bibs keep you warm while hunting in cold weather. The last thing you want to do on a cold weather hunting trip is freeze all day. The coldest I’ve ever been in my life was on a camping trip where I didn’t prepare properly by wearing the right clothing. An insulated hunting bib would have made all the difference in the world. 

Most hunting bibs for cold weather are waterproof and made with high-quality materials that will keep you warm even in wet weather. They’re also incredibly breathable due to the fabric system. You can move in them easily and many feature a vertical pattern that allows lateral stretching so you can maneuver freely. A neck gaiter is another way to keep warm while hunting. 

Hunters know they need to be extremely quiet, especially while hunting deer. The slightest sound will cause you to go home empty-handed. The best-insulated hunting bibs for cold weather are designed to be quiet and soft to prevent alerting the prey of your presence. 

You get plenty of pockets for hunting gear with hunting bibs which make them especially helpful. Many hunting bibs can even be converted to pants in the event you don’t want to use the suspenders option. 

A great insulated hunting bib can also be used for skiing or other activities that require you to stay warm. There are tons of brands and companies that make hunting bibs, here are the best: 

Sitka Insulated Fanatic Hunting Bib

Sitka makes great hunting gear and the Fanatic Hunting Bib is one of the best on the market. It’s made from 100% Polyester and allows you to move without making noise. It has extremely large pockets to store your hunting gear and you can access them without making too much noise thanks to the silent snaps. You can customize your storage space for your essential gear and it features secured zipper storage for important items you don’t want to lose. 

The Sitka insulated hunting bib is perfect for cold weather and will keep you warm better than other options. The high-loft Berber fleece does an amazing job and will make your next cold-weather hunt better. 

What we like:

I use Sitka hunting gear every year and their hunting bib is easily one of my favorites. I’m a large man and it fits great! I like the fact that it has silent snaps so you can access your gear without making extra noise. Also, the burr-resistant material around the legs is a great addition, especially for the areas I hunt. I highly recommend this cold-weather hunting bib to anyone that wants a great fit that they can wear for years.

What we like: 

I was able to get the Arctix hunting bib for a relatively cheap price compared to other options. In fact, I was able to pick up multiple camo patterns for less than what I paid for a single pair of another brand. I chose this one because I needed an extra pair that didn’t cost a fortune. These are reinforced in areas that normally wear out faster such as the ankle and hem guards. The only issue I saw with these is the sizing and you may need to read some reviews to find the best size for you.
