    Default Handlers Jacket

    Are there any recommendations for a lightweight, summer, handlers jacket for a skinny guy? I have one from Lion Country supply and the arms are right but I could gain at least 100lbs and have it still fit. Looking for a slimmer fit. Any suggestions?

    They are all made large. I think Howard was the model, pre diet. Just teasing Howard. You could call Golden Lake Garment at 800-283-0504 and ask about a slimmer size. There are several threads about Golden Lakes handlers jackets. People see to be happy with their product. They have a website: www.goldenlakejackets.com

    I just got a golden lakes jacket and like it. The sizes are accurate also.

    Call Tom @ GL and tell him you need the Smurf model, he'll get it right out.

    I like white button down Columbia shirts, or knock offs, for warm weather handling.

    Thanks for the suggestions I got in contact with Tom at Golden Lakes and experienced some of the best customer service I have ever seen in any industry. Will definitely be taking my business there in the future.

    I'm like everyone else always looking for something that works for me. I have a few LCS jackets and I just don't like the velcro. It's a pain in the butt, it sticks to everything and everything sticks to it.

    A few weeks ago I bought one from Dogs Afield to try it out and I have to say I am impressed with it. The fabric is good and it has a Mesh back. It has a knit collar and cuffs which I like so much better than the velcro. I will order a few more of these.

    It was only a 5 or so minute call, maybe 10.

    I picked up a white Columbia PFG shirt recently and have been very happy.
