I was Cabela's during their waterfowl weekend and checked out the new ladies 4-1 coat. I was planning on buying one, but after I started looking at it I realized it didn't say waterproof, just water-resistant, and the fit wasn't quite right. I'm not that big, depending on how things run I'm a small or medium, usually small. I tried a medium coat on, with just a t-shirt on, and the upper sleeves were already snug. Even at $30 off the regular price, I wasn't going to buy it if it wasn't waterPROOF and I couldn't layer under it. They lost a sale there.

I heard that SHE Safari is going to start a women's line of waterfowl gear. I'm looking forward to seeing what they offer.

Drake also has a ladies 3-1plus2 (the liner sleeves zip-off turning it into a vest) coat that I'm really tempted to get. At least it's waterPROOF, it's a fair chunk of change though, and I have a wonderful ladies Filson field jacket so I don't really want to spend that much $.

I was going to buy the Drake Womens Equator until I found out it didnt have a hood. I ended up with the males version with a hood and I am very happy with it. Coats are never a huge problem for me, pants are. I bought a mens herters duck jacket for around $150 and it fits me great.

SHE just started listing their waders last week I saw. They look pretty nice, but I'm not sure about the zipper, and they seem rather tight, so I'm not sure how layering is supposed to work with them.


Yeah, I think I'm just going to stick with my Filson for the next year or two, unless I come across a good deal. Not long ago, I picked up a British army surplus wool sweater that fits awesome and is going to be really warm, for a layering piece. For $20 can't beat that.
