I would like to thanks John Kuhl, Bret Akers, and Eric Gage for recommending L.L. Bean's Baxter State parka here a year ago. My sweet wife just bought me one for Christmas and it kept me nice and toasty at a local dark sky site (Red Rocks) Saturday night, despite a low temperature of 8 degrees.
My poor Sky Commander was performing very sluggishly though. The text was coming up faint and very slowly on the LCD screen, until I placed a hand warmer heat pad on it. It worked wonders. Highly recommended in the gloves, too!
