    How is it? I bought that vortex bino pack and it’s almost too snug but I think I just need to break it in more..

    What spine did you go with? I'm looking at Zombie Slayers in a 300 spine and attempting to go up to roughly 600 grains. I haven't pulled the trigger yet.

    I have 300 spine. So far my testing has been limited to 575 grain arrows out to 30 yards. Weak spine has not been an issue yet. I bought some 150 grain and 200 grain field points to test as well. I am going to build these as heavy as I can without compromising spine.

    So, I decided to try a handheld thumb release to see what all the rage is about. Picked up the Scott Pursuit. IMG_20200219_125545.jpg

    I am still waiting up upgrade my binos but they fit my nikon prostaff 3s perfectly. but those are only 8x42. it also fits my sig sauer range finder in the front pocket. the side pockets will fit a bottle of wind indicating chalk or mouth reed calls. it fits my body nice, but i am only 5' 10" about 170? the top cell phone pocket fits my iphone 8 with the case on. thats about how far i have gotten with it so far.

    I'd like to know how the Plythal camo works out for you. I've been interested in it as well.

    I’ll let you guys know for sure. I’m nervous because I’m normally a Large pants/bibs and an XL coat. I read some reviews that said Plythal is an athletic fit and you can possibly plan on one size up. On Camofire they only had XL bibs and pants in the camo pattern I wanted and I went with XL on the jacket as well so I one size uped on pants and went normal size on jacket . Tags will stay on until I’m 100% positive on the fit
