I have a Columbia upland coat that is nice if it's cold, but it's heavier than the Carhart, and being non-breathable, only good if it's cold or cool and windy. I only wear it if it's 10 degrees or less. (It has more room under it for layers. My Carhart fits snug.)
Chaps are a good idea, too. I like Boatman's:
First week of Dec could be anywhere from cool to cold (possible to have a warm afternoon, but not so likely). Get some light long underwear bottoms. (Maybe some mediums, just in case.) Don't forget a warm hat and gloves. (My cold weather hat covers the back of my neck (I think it's a "yazoo" hat by Columbia.) Stocking cap will do.

Check out the McAlister Coats. McAlister has the orange field coat on sale for $115.00. The jacket by itself is warm in mild weather and then with a liner it's great for colder weather. Built in game bag and internal suspenders so you can peel the jacket off and wear like a back pack if it gets too hot.
to the point

Columbia makes one with zip off sleeves works real well. Start out in the morning as a coat zip out sleeves in the afternoon hunt in a vest.

I have had the cabela's 8 in 1 Upland coat for over 6 years. It is versatile and works well. Best is it is in the Bargin cave right now only $60-$75, normally about $115. I just bought my wife and sons their own.

Check out the McAllister coats. I did lots of looking and ended up getting this one. It is great and I would not trade it for my dad's Filson. Much better designed in my opinion. Most comfortable upland coat I've ever owned.
