Reversible Puff Jacket from Girls with Guns Clothing
Hunting and fashion rarely go hand in hand, which is a problem that two best friends from California set out to fix. From its garage-based beginning, Girls with Guns Clothing has grown over the last five years and has brought its fashion-based functionality to the shelves of major retailers nationwide.
"After years of ill-fitting hand-me-downs from my father and brother, it almost feels inconceivable to wear hunting clothing that actually fits my form and looks great at the same time. Girls with Guns has certainly filled a much needed gap in the hunting clothing market."–Rose Bier, Assistant Editor, American Hunter
The Reversible Puff Jacket, made of durable microfiber ripstop material, is full of Primaloft Silver insulation for warmth and is covered in Mossy Oak Break-Up Country on one side, and a stylish Charcoal Grey on the reverse for those occasions when ladies venture beyond the timber.
