For a long time I would wear a Northface fleece jacket on cool/cold days. However over this past winter, my fleece suffered an unfortunate accident while I was shoveling snow and ripped apart on me. I was going to go for the budget friendly approach and try sewing the thing back together but decided to forget that idea and buy myself something nice and useful. I could have gotten another Northface, but I really wanted something that would be more durable and adaptable to my shooting activities. For those of you who don't already know, I shoot a lot of sporting clays. With clay shooting, your arms and body are in consistent motion as you follow the clay for the shot. With that being said, the adjustable cuffs with the thumb holes worked out great at keeping the jacket put. The reinforced panels around the shoulder area were great at helping to keep the butt of the gun set and not loose its position on your shoulder. The jacket is warm and loose enough to allow you to layer up a bit. Last but not least, I actually liked the drop down stadium seat because I could put my butt down on any wet surface around the course. Why is it always that the little things make the most difference ?
