Browning coat detail.

Epic, by Nextec, is described on the hang tag as being "comfortable weather protection that won’t wash out". It involves a patented process that encapsulates the fibers making them water resistant, windproof, yet at the same time, breathable…. for the life of the garment. I found that rain actually beads up on these fibers. Field testing this coat in an all-day rain, the fabric never became wet.

The jacket features the same unique ammo flap pocket design as the Repel-Tex upland vest - as well as the shoulder pockets that can hold a Browning Reactor recoil pad. It has a metal zipper and snap close, wind flap front opening, dual front access expandable game bag that is lined and zips open for easy cleaning. There are hand warmer pockets and a generous sized interior pocket. The versatility of this jacket is increased two-fold because it can be easily converted into a vest with the zip off sleeves.
Orvis vest.

The jacket comes in an acorn and blaze color combination. It’s available in women’s sizes S-2XL and retails for $192.00.
Orvis vest back detail.


Although this company’s upland clothing made specifically for women is limited to just one vest, it lives up to the standard of quality one would expect from Orvis.

Orvis Red Hills Shooting Vest

For warm weather field work, this tailored shooting vest is a good choice. The two five shell capacity, elastic ammo holders are on the front of the vest and are covered with flaps. An expandable, lined game bag can be easily loaded from either side of the front. Velcro closes the front game bag openings and two large pockets.
