Looks legit, but I am afraid I missed the safety harness in all their pictures. Id be wearing one especially with that thing on.

IWOM is the warmest thing I have to wear....This is how I compare it with my other gear:

IWOM: Warmest setup I have,  A little noisy for bow hunting due to the waterproof fabric.  Its also a little bulky but I can still use my bow.  Im using the IWOM when 25 degrees and below for long all day sits or 5 hours or more.  Ive been out in 15 degree for over 6 hours in the IWOM and stayed warm the whole time. 

Sitka incinerator set: Not as warm as the IWOM but my 2nd best setup for cold days. A little noisy for bow hunting also do to the waterproof fabric.  Not nearly as bulky as the IWOM and lighter to carry in...It also packs in easier because it compresses well.  Very comfortable setup...just not as warm as IWOM.   I use this setup on long walks (1 mile +) in and 4 hours sits in 20-30 degrees.  I can use it in lower temps with more layers...but in 15 degree weather...I start to get cold around 4 hours in but that might be all you need.   Also with this setup, I use boot blankets....dont need those with the Iwom.

Dayone Wool parka and bibs:  These are my favorite for around 25+ to 30 degrees and 4 hour sits that are not a long walk in.....  They are a little bulky and heavy but the wool is absolutely dead quiet and I love the asat camo.  Ive been out in 20 degrees with 15 mph winds..but get cold around the 4 hour mark.  This set doesnt keep me as warm as the sitka setup which is surprising considering how thick the dayone is.  (my dayone setup is the wool with the wind/insulation layer)....

The sitka and dayone is expensive stuff...The IWOM is great considering the price.  You can wear just a your baselayer and the IWOM in higher temps...say 35 degrees and keep the zippers open...plus you have the snow/rain proof protection...you just have to be a little cautious when moving around when the deer are in close.   The Sitka is expensive but I think you are paying for the lighter weight and more packable...less bulky setup up.  I think you can go out in some really cold temps 20 and below in the sitka for about 4 hours.   i do wish the material was a little more quiet though.

Dayone is kinda expensive too...and bulky/heavy for the wool setup...but by far the quietest setup....I really like it due to the wool fabric ....Its just a bit much having to pack it in on long walks..it doesnt compress well. 

I really enjoy late season hunting in Jan.   I also get cold pretty easily.  So I unfortunately have spent a lot of money trying to find a warm setup that gets me through Jan.   I guess the nice thing is now I have 3 sets and I can pick depending on the weather and hunt im doing.   

If I were on a budget and could only pick one....it would probably have to be the IWOM. 

Hope this helps..
Dave

I have a Heater body suit which looks pretty similar.  It is kind of bulky if you are trying to put it on or take it off while in a treestand.  It is very warm.  Have worn it when the temps are in the teens and not felt cold at all.

I just ordered the IWOM last night. I'll let you know. One of the owners of the company emailed me to confirm height weight to make sure I ordered the right size and said they'd send it asap. That was a nice touch and 100% satisfaction guarantee with full refund if I hunt in it and don't like it was also a bonus. I read all the reviews I could find and couldn't find anything negative. I live in Ohio now and the archery season goes to Feb 4th. My cold gear wasn't cutting it out here. So hopefully this is the ticket.

I mean, the Heater suit might be fine with a straight-jacket but to hunt with? Come on!!! The IWON looks a bit clumsy..Warm I am sure, but with a hang-on, I dunno either. How abour a climber?
My toes and fingers are the first to go at 15, not my core.

And your point???

Two completely different garments. IWOM far easier transport and in a TREESTAND.
Do you have one?? I have both and BOTH are great in THEIR given applications.

I do not own either one. So, I am speaking from ignorance rather than what is on their site. I said they looked warm, but in a lot of ways not practicable to hunt with. Obviously they are, but look very impractable and bulky for hang-ons or climbers. I guess I am just not sure what their applications are. Looks dangerous to me if your arms or legs are zipped and enclosed, but I assume I wrong and missed something from your responses. I get by with Arctic Shield boot covers and a few handwarmers thrown in and Zippo handwarmers.

AG the suit was designed for a blind in sub temps. IWOM is a unique modification to enable its use for also a treestand or to be used on long treks to the stand. Very cool idea given its application. Around here in only my opinion IWOM is a better choice. Much lighter and easy to transport.......VERY WARM. In a blind with not too far a trek the body suit gets the nod.
