I am a coat snob! I own a lot of different coats and often I am disappointed by the lack of versatility in them. Either the coats are tight and restrict my movement or they are simply not cut out for weather changes we get in western Pennsylvania.
So when I was given the opportunity to review a Ladies Windproof Soft Shell Jacket by Yukon Gear, I was elated to say the least. Not only is this jacket windproof it is water-resistant, fleece lined, ultra-soft and quiet. This jacket is new for 2014 and comes in two colors, winter & black and pink & black. The shell is a 3-ply windproof 100% polyester fleece.
When Yukon designed this jacket they had women in mind. Not only are the sleeves long enough that I don’t have to worry about my long arms being exposed, I also can relax knowing that when my arms are stretched over my head or I am pulling my bow, my torso is covered. The sides of the jacket have drawstrings to allow you to make it tighter or looser depending on your situation. I was able to layer underneath and wear it to shovel my driveway in 7 degree weather and not get cold. A few days later it warmed up to 40 degrees with rain and I was able to wear it while grocery shopping and was comfortable and stayed dry. This Yukon Windproof Soft Shell Jacket is the perfect solution for the many different aspects of my life!
The jacket is not restrictive and bulky like most winter jackets or some hunting coats that would hinder your movement in the woods. Yukon seems to have found a happy medium between bulk and so thin it does not stop the wind. It is also machine washable, so I don’t have to worry about what I get into in the woods, it comes clean easy.
Two large zipper pockets allow you to carry valuables with ease and comfort of knowing they will not fall out unexpectedly and get ruined. The jacket is available in small, medium, large and extra-large. Before you order this jacket, check the sizing chart to be sure you are ordering the correct size. Yukon Outdoor Gear is an affordable line, essential for hunters in the woods or causal dressing around camp. They have a variety of garments in the popular Mossy Oak patterns for jackets, parkas, bibs, pants, shirts, fleece wear and vests.
Yukon Gear Hunting Apparel is available to purchase through Amazon.com and HerCamoShop.com, as well as local retailers across the United States. The Ladies Windproof Soft Shell Jacket has a MSRP of $79.99.
