Hunting Clothing for Serious, Dedicated Women Hunters
Anne Vinnola says: â€œJust ask any woman hunter, and she will tell you, the most difficult part of hunting? Her wardrobe. Finding well fitting, hard working, layerable, hunting pants and shirts. Some mainstream clothing companies are slowly beginning to work womenâ€™s sizes into their lines, but mostly they are cut like a man and just sized smaller.â€
As a woman, I am always trying to find resources tailored for women. I constantly battle the cold because of having a thyroid problem. I decided to do some research on ways to keep warm and here is what I found!
According the Wikapedia, layered clothing is a manner of dressing using multiple garments that are worn on top of each other. Some of the layers have different, largely non-overlapping, functions. Using more or fewer layers, or replacing one layer but not others, allows for flexible clothing to match the needs of each situation. Two thin layers can be warmer yet lighter than one thick layer, because the air trapped between layers is a good insulator
Layered clothing is particularly relevant in cold climates, where clothing must at the same time transfer moisture, provide warmth, and protect from wind and rain. In a hot and dry climate, clothes have very different functional requirements: they must block the radiation from the Sun, and allow for sufficient air circulation. Therefore, layered clothing in the sense used in this article is largely irrelevant to hot and dry climates.
Outdoor and sportswear manufacturers favor layered clothing because, among other reasons, it allows them to offer so-called â€œtechnicalâ€ or â€œfunctionalâ€ clothes which are optimized for the particular demands of a specific layer. Such clothes are often made of advanced synthetic materials.
With that being said I was on a quest for clothing that not only kept me warm but was made for a woman and had many thin layering options. Impossible you say? I thought so too until I ran into Kirstie Pike from Prois Hunting Apparel.
Kirstie states â€œProis Hunting finally answers our â€œQuestâ€ for great Womenâ€™s Hunting Clothing and Gear. Throughout our years of hunting, we at Prois were amazed at the fact that there was literally nothing on the market for women who hunt.â€
This â€œQuestâ€ for Womenâ€™s Hunting Clothing soon became an obsession; they thought womenâ€™s huntwear must be something of a myth! While they attempted to avoid sounding like a frustrated feminists, they found it unreasonable that successful women hunters could not find appropriate gear for their sport.
Simple concept, the Prois Hunting team thought; Combine technical hunting components, functional fabric and an athletic composition, and unite it with patterns that are engineered to the female formâ€¦Voila, Prois Hunting Apparel!
This new womenâ€™s hunting clothing concept takes layering to a new art form. The Prois shirt is a cross between the finest athletic wear, and a comfortable favorite shirt. Polyester wicking fabric keeps moisture from your skin and allows you to stay dry and warm. Thumbholes help the shirt to stay in your gloves and it is perfect alone for cool fall mornings of archery or layered for those cold winter rifle hunting trips.
Prois Hunting Pants are crafted using 100% polyester brushed tricot for warmth and durability. They are snag resistant and silent in the woods. Each pair is fitted just below the waist for comfort and fits a womanâ€™s form perfectly. There is plenty of storage room in the deep cargo pockets and thoughtfully pleated knees for kneeling comfort. They are boot cut to fit over bulky hunting boots with elastic cuffs and cord lock to cinch close to your boot. Add in their vests, jackets and rain gear and you are set for all occasions.
Prois Hunting Apparel is taking the industry by storm with their â€œmade FOR womenâ€ hunting clothes. Women are not interested in merely looking like hunters; we are hunters that demand the best quality hunting clothing. We fully understand that fit, warmth and durability makes a huge impact on our hunting success. Prois Hunting Apparel is serious clothing for serious, dedicated women hunters.
