  1. Default Womenís hunting apparel

    I live in Alaska and Iím a novice hunter who is looking for good apparel. Most of the hunting I do is in an ATv to the location with sitting and glassing, sometimes spot and stalk. Some of what Iím looking for is warmth, wind resistant, water resistance, durability, comfort, and fit. What is everyone wearing? Why do you like it? Pros? Cons? Thanks in advance!

    I’ve really been happy with the few pieces I’ve picked up from First Lite. The wool tops are comfortable and warm, the sizing seems decent. They don’t (or didn’t when I was shopping) have a huge women’s line yet. Waiting for some warmer pants and expanded offerings. I have some of the older Prois stuff- not bad, but I’m dying to see some of their revamped line. The old line also came in a good variety of sizes and was warm. The outerwear keeps me dry and cuts the wind well. I have not tried any of the women’s Sitka so can’t comment.

    With 3 ladies to outfit with gear in a addition to myself our budget cant do the top of the line common brands but my girls have found the Cabelas OutfitHer series to be very comfortable, warm and quiet.

    I’ve been looking at the Prois line myself... my husband only wears FirstLite so he’s being partial.. Prois seems pretty good. Thank you for the info on both of these brands!

    I really like the looks of the new Prois camo pattern. Iím hoping maybe theyíve brought the quality of the gear up a notch, like the promo material suggests. It was way better than the Cabelaís stuff, but not quite up to First Lite and Sitka quality.

    I totally agree on the First Lite gear being awesome. However, if you happen to be a curvier lady (like myself) I'd recommend ordering from the men's line.

    You can get a ton of great gear online through Rokslide that's gently used and typically at a decent discount. I got myself a jacket from First Lite for $60 off of retail that had been worn a few times by the previous owner before deciding they wanted something new. Feel free to shoot me a PM if you have specific questions on how to find deals and what not (I look at a couple of different websites as well).

    I know this is an old post, but I’m new to posting anything, I noticed no one mentioned Sitka. I got into Sitka subalpine gear for my archery tag last fall and have since gotten into their waterfowl gear too lately and it’s been awesome. I’m dang hard on gear and it’s held up. Other than ordering things a size larger than I usually would their gears been great. Not to say anything negative about firstlite or any of the other brands.

    Got into First Lite last couple of years really like their clothing. But! I do not buy women's cut clothing. I find the shirts usually aren't wide enough in the shoulders and I feel I'm not out there to impress the deer and elk.
    But have Cabela's items, bought some great sweaters from Costco for next to nothing and so forth. I buy what is usually on sale or I buy next years winter clothing when everything goes on sale just before the summer items come in and the stores want to clear everything out.
    Carhart makes some good stuff stuff now a days too..
