‘Tis the season to be on the lookout for new camo jackets whether you plan to do some more hunting or have already filled your tags for the year. If you’re like me and believe there is no such thing as too much gear, too many guns, or too much ammo, you probably include “camo” in your “can’t have enough” lists. For one thing there are various weights of hunting clothing depending on the season, not to mention the many camo pattern options. For those of us that like our patterns to match from head to toe, Cabela’s is adding yet another pattern to some of their jacket options.
The new pattern is Mossy Oak Break-Up Country and it’ll be available on Cabela’s Rush Creek insulated and soft-shell jackets (yes they’re men’s jackets but I readily admit to owning and using more men’s camo than women’s). The great thing about the insulated jacket is that it’s both waterproof and windproof – 100%, according to the company. The shell is designed to resist burrs and other clingy foliage and thanks to its being made with 80-gram Thinsulate Platinum for the body and 60-gram for the sleeves, it’s definitely warm.
As for the soft-shell it’s meant for layering although it can be worn on its own as well. It’s made with 89/11 polyester/spandex and the backing of the sleeves are made with 94/6 polyester/spandex which is supposed to make it easier to get on and off. There’s a chest pocket and what they refer to as “handwarmer” pockets.
There’s probably someone on your Christmas list who could benefit from a warm hunting jacket (maybe it’s a gift for you, from you). Cabela’s has a lot more to offer than just their new Mossy Oak Break-Up Country jackets. Also keep in mind that once 2016 rolls around they’ll be owned by Bass Pro.
