The Cabela’s OutfitHER Active hoodie for Women has become an essential part of my gear. I purchased it for my trip to Saskatchewan and was able to put it to the test there and again at home. It is made of a soft, anti-pill fabric that is a 94% polyester/6% spandex blend. It keeps body heat in and the cold out with a comfortable stretch performance technology, making it easy to move in. It has a superior moisture management treatment for a dry feeling and extra warmth retention in the finish.
In Saskatchewan we faced all types of weather from high 20°C/68°F temperatures with the sun beating down on us, thunderstorms, to extremely cool mornings and evenings. We also didnt have any way to wash our hunting clothes for the 6 days we were at camp. I wore this hoodie everyday as either a layering piece, an outside layer or just a hoodie by itself. When the temperatures dropped it kept me warm as an outside layer. While sitting in the stand, after a light rain shower, I got a little damp but the hoodie dried quickly and I never found myself chilled.
The fabric is very soft and quiet, which is nice when walking through the bush where you dont have to worry about a branch brushing your arm and scaring off an animal. The fabric is also stretchy, so it fits really nicely and is easy to move around in. I was really impressed that even after 7 days of wearing it, from our trip to camp and while in camp, it never held any odor. I wore it as an outter piece on a humid day with one of my other shirts underneath while hiking around and figured that may be the last time I would get to wear it on my trip. To my surprise, even though I could only wear the undershirt that one day, my hoodie was still fairly fresh.
To assist in keeping odors from perspiration from the garment, I sprayed it with some scent elimination spray and never had an issue with any unwanted odors. I also used the hoodie while hunting at home for black bear and after pulling a stalk up a slide after a nice cinnamon black bear, I was quite warm and sweaty. I found the hoodie wicked away the sweat and kept me dry so that when I was sitting and waiting on the bear, I never got a chill. I love this hoodie for any style of hunting and is great for everyday wear as well. The Cabela’s OutfitHER Active Hoodie has a MSRP of $59.99-$64.99 and you can purchase it at www.cabelas.com.
