Great hunting clothes make all the difference in the world for both men and women when hunting. However, women have different needs in clothing than men. When will the major suppliers of hunting clothes take note of this especially in view of the huge uptick in women who want to hunt.? Women do not like oversized clothing. Even with the proper size, the proportions are usually completely wrong. Too much material in certain areas, makes you feel awkward and uncomfortable. Even while hunting, women want to feel like they look good, right? I am all about sleek clothes with high performance. I don’t want to be weighed down with more fabric than I need. Zippers are my favorite item on my clothes. Open pockets are useless. Never buy a jacket that does not have zippered pockets. When you are sitting in complete darkness, you need to know where everything you need is with easy access without fear of something falling out of your pocket. This time of year, I am enjoying my Field and Stream with No Scent technology. I found it at Dicks Sporting Goods and I have been very pleased with it. It is the perfect weight for this time of year and you can layer with it as well making it great for cold morning hunts and it stands well on its own for afternoon hunts. The pockets are perfect and the legs are wide enough to work with snake boots. I have a lot of ideas on how to make women’s hunting clothes better if only I could get someone to listen to my ideas. That’s a topic for another post!

I totally agree about women’s hunting clothes. I’m 66 years and am a avid upland bird hunter and field trials. Trying to find something in a size 8 that’s stylish is almost impossible. I have bought several Beretta shirts and a vest but had to buy a XL! Don’t know what bigger girls do! Women need to get involved in design, I had thought briefly about starting a line of clothing but never did anything about it. You go girl!!
Hi Sue, You are right! However, I wrote the article a year ago before I found the answer to our wardrobe problem. Prois Hunting Apparel & Gear. https://www.proishunting.com Their hunting clothes are made specifically for women and the clothes fit very well. I am now on the Hunt Staff for Prois and I wear and review their clothes and gear. You will love the upland brush pants and reversible sherpa vest. Please check it out. You can use my DISCOUNT CODE: BOINEAU for 20% discount. Also I am not sure where you live, but we have Facebook groups where you can join and be alerted to flash sales that are amazing ( up to 40%). Let me know which state you live in. Also, please keep me posted on your hunts. I am getting ready to quail hunt next month and so excited!
Sorry, I just found your site today. I will check out the site, thank you. I live in the mountains of western NC. Enjoy your quail hunt, so much fun! I went to SD last fall for a week of pheasant hunting with four men! What fun and a wonderful experience. My young GWP hadn’t ever seen a pheasant before but she didn’t seem to mind after she got over the shock of a GIANT QUAIL I flushed in front of her. She looked at me like ‘what the hell was that’! She recovered quickly and brought it back to hand. How proud I was.
Enjoy! Sue Ellen
