Shooting Jacket
« on: October 04, 2012, 08:32:49 PM »
Has anyone found a reasonably priced jacket that is actually sized and cut to fit women?  I saw the last post, but I'm very small and worried about fit.

If you're interested in the USMC style.  There's an Appleseeder who actually makes them.  I'd assume she might be able to make custom sizing and fitting. 


Here's the thread:  http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=26523.0

The ones 2cl mentioned are probably the best, unless you really want to spend a whole bunch of money on a custom fit leather model. And hey, let's give some Appleseeders the business!
The doorway to freedom is framed by the muskets that stood between a vision of of liberty and absolute anarchy at a place called Concord Bridge--Charlton Heston, 1997

"Be a man of principle. Fight for what you believe in. Keep your word. Live with integrity. Be brave. Believe in something bigger than yourself. Serve your country. Teach. Mentor. Give something back to society. Lead from the front. Conquer your fears. Be a good friend. Be humble and be self-confident. Appreciate your friends and family. Be a leader and not a follower. Be valorous on the field of battle. And take responsibility for your actions. Never forget those that were killed. And never let rest those that killed them." -- Major Douglas Zembiec

Both those links go to a very nice lady who lives in Montana, she made me a shooting jacket, but it really needs a pocket to hold a magazine for standing.

I bought one of Mary's shooting jackets last summer. (That's who 2 clicks low is suggesting.) She'll email you to get your measurements and make the jacket to order. If you have a special request she'll tell you what's possible, and at what cost. A pocket for magazines might be worth mentioning.

I'm quite pleased with mine. It's REALLY sturdy but generous enough in size to be comfortable.
