This is a great lightweight jacket and is perfect for living in Southern Nevada. Hubby just gave it to me for my birthday so have only worn it duck hunting so far, and it is perfect as day gets warmer.
***I would love to be able to have this with camo on the inside of the hood. The hood is currently white on the inside so if I wear this with the hood down it’s much more noticeable. Camo inside the hood would take this jacket to the next level stealth-wise.
This jacket fits me so perfectly and will be a great addition to my layering system. I have not yet put it to the true test, but having a few other pieces of Prois merino that I have worn, I have no doubt that it will not disappoint. I have struggled for so long to find hunting gear that properly fits me (tall, long legs, not much for hips), but then I found Prois and I have not turned back!
This was hands down my favorite prois piece purchase, I couldn’t say enough good about the comfort, warmth, and versatility of this jacket until I got into burrs tracking a deer this year. I’m not able to remove them all from the fabric on the sleeves…I’ve reached an end point on attempting to get them out and am afraid this jacket will just need to be tossed. My torai pants I had on with this also got covered and I was able to remove them there, but it shredded the little fibers of the fabric so now those just look terrible.
Rarely have I been so impressed with a wool layer! This is warm in the winter and incredibly breathable in the summer. My temp fluctuates constantly. I have to limit water, so I lose an important temp buffer and layer of regulation. This meets me where I am - all year round! The cut and fit are perfect for everyday wear and for hunts in most conditions. It’s a great sun shield and very breathable, esp doable in summertime when unzipped. I love the cut and want to wear this when not hunting, but I need more colors. Prois - if you’re monitoring, please consider adding navy, tan, olive drab, black selections. If only the fashion world figured this out and… and offered a functional pocket, this would convert to a classic - akin to my favorite rifle! Well done Prois!
Love this jacket. Super soft and adds a warm extra layer for those chilly mornings in the stand. Also great for an extra layer in colder temps without excess bulk. So happy I bought this! It's the base layer I didn't know I needed!
