You should be able to clear out a few cords of wood from the north 40 by snowfall. Essential gear includes Elkskin Gloves, RanchHand Dungarees, Ranchstone shirt and a Fenceline® Arena Vest…a Trail Boss hat wouldn’t hurt either. The weather resistant Fenceline® canvas shell and 100 grams of SO-Tek insulation gets you easily through the day. Plus the two-way zippered front, full storm collar, handwarmer pockets and inside security pocket provide you function with plenty of warmth without the bulk of a jacket. Made in USA.
