Browning 4 in 1 parka

Thread starter #1


Senior Member
I was looking to buy a browning 4 / 1 Parka but I ran across looking at these and found a Hydro-fleece and a Hydro-suede. I am not sure what the difference is but I found the Hydro-suede on ebay for $149, they both say that they are waterproof windproof and basically all of the same characteristics. So what is the difference between the two and which is perfered.

I belive all the Hydrosuedes have a down liner and the Hydrofleece has a thermore liner. I bought the H/S, didn't like the bulk and returned it for the H/F. Also, there's a H/F Classic and a H/F pro. The pro has a removable hood and a few other gimmicky things to add to it.

I've got the H/F pro and like it a lot. Kept me nice and toasty on a 20 deg F morning with nothing but some underarmour cold gear underneath. I highly recommend it, but not for the full retail price. I got my jacket from a Cabela's closeout for $200.

Hope that helps...
