Newsflash! Women hunt, too. Here’s a list of must-have bird hunting gear that will score you brownie points with mom this Sunday.
JAGDHUND Gamshag Green Women’s Hunting Vest
A vest is a quintessential piece of gear for hunting season. This sporty vest is 95 percent new wool and 5 percent alpaca to create thermo-regulating climate zones against the body. The Gamshag Vest is windproof and water-repellent for harsh weather. Two front pockets and two zippered breast pockets keep gear close at hand if need be.
Filson Original Goatskin Gloves
Don’t let mom get caught in the field without a pair of tough gloves to pull cactus and briars out of her bird dog’s paws. The Filson Goatskin Gloves are made with fine grain Grade A goatskin and provide medium-weight protection. An elastic wrist keeps the gloves secure and snug.
Orvis Women’s Upland Shell
This softshell jacket is tapered for women for a perfect fit. The fabric is durable enough to resist briars while still allowing mobility and breathability in the field. The Orvis Upland Shell is wind and water resistant, and features side zips for ventilation.
ALPS OutdoorZ Upland Game Vest X
The ALPS Upland Game Vest X has thin shoulder straps for shooting comfort, two front pockets to hold fresh and spent shells, and two flip-down gun rests for long miles in the field (available in size large only). A large rear pocket and two extra pockets hold a first-aid kit and miscellaneous gear. A large wrap-around game pouch unzips for easy cleaning. Two water bottle pockets, two radio pockets, and a spot for a water bladder round out the package.
LOWA Lady Light GTX
Lowa's Lady Light GTX is made for women looking for a lightweight yet durable boot. Made on a women’s-specific last for a perfect fit, these boots are made to give a little more room in the metatarsal area. A one-piece leather upper provides ankle support, while a GORE-TEX lining is breathable and maintains a balanced interior temperature. A VIBRAM Trac Lite II sole is made to trek across sharp rock and harsh terrain.
