L.L. Bean Big Game System Review

As an outdoor writer and videographer, I naturally spend a great deal of time outdoors, but I don't have the luxury of only going out on bluebird days. If photos are needed for an article or a hunt is scheduled to be filmed, it has to get done no matter what the weather conditions and my outerwear absolutely cannot fail.

This past summer, I visited L.L. Bean headquarters in Freeport, ME to film a feature on the company. While there, I was impressed with their state-of-the-art product testing facility, their design team composed of people that actually hunt and the pride and confidence that they have in their products. In this world of "make a quick buck" businesses, L.L. Bean's philosophy is refreshing. In 1916, Leon Leonwood Bean placed a sign on the wall of the original retail store in Freeport that read, "Notice - I do not consider a sale complete until goods are worn out and customer still satisfied." The sign remains and the company maintains that same belief today by offering a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

L.L. Bean recently developed a line of Big Game System outerwear, which is a system of individual pieces designed to work together through layering to perform in a variety of conditions. I put the outerwear through a three-month, no-holds-barred evaluation to find out if their products lived up to the confidence that they placed in them. Below is a description of the individual Big Game System components followed by journal entries of the conditions that they were subjected to and the results.

Technical Shell
The Technical Shell is constructed of two-layer waterproof, breathable fabric. The two large front pockets and the two vertical chest pockets have waterproof zippers. The full-vision hood is removable. The cuffs are adjustable through the use of Velcro straps. A rear cargo pouch holds larger items or small game or can be unzipped for ventilation. In warm weather, the side vents can be unzipped for additional ventilation. For cold weather, a mesh handwarmer-sized pocket is located in the center of the back. The shoulders are covered with solid-black antislip patches to hold rifle slings or backpacks securely. The Technical Shell is designed to be worn in temperatures ranging from 35 F to 70 F.

Heavy Weight Liner Jacket
The Heavy Weight Liner Jacket is wind resistant, water repellent and it has an XT-S Thinsulate Insulation lining in a zone configuration - 160 grams in the body and 100 grams in the sleeves. For scent reduction, the XT-S lining includes an X-Static treatment. The cuffs are attached to the inside of the Technical Shell cuffs when the two pieces are worn together. The Heavy Weight Liner Jacket is designed to be worn by itself in dry weather ranging from 20 F to 50 F or underneath the Technical Shell in any elements from -15 F to 30 F.

Technical Pants
The Technical Pants can be worn alone on dry, cool days or underneath waders or the Overpants in cold, wet conditions. They are constructed of quiet, moist...
