View Full Version : Hunting Products for Women
06-27-2002, 10:28 AM
From some of the discussions and from my own observations, it appears to me that there are not a lot of outdoors/hunting/fishing products available for women. ###Is this true?
What products would you like to see available? ###....I may be able to help out.

Right now, I would really like a pair of featherlight, stocking foot, chest waders for women. ###The only type that I can find that are in my price range are bootfoot. ###Women are shaped differently than men (wider hips) and to get the waders to fit in the hips, we have to buy sizes that are too big everywhere else. ###There have been a few posts here about women trying to find different types of waders made for women.
It would also be nice to have warm hunting gloves that are made for women.
It is harder and more expensive to find women's outdoor/hunting/fishing clothing. ###Cabela's is doing a much better job at carrying affordable women's clothing than any other supplier, but they still far from "equal." ###Just my two cents!!

I posted earlier about looking for a pair of waders that are better fitting and in a 5 mm neoprene, ok, I'd settle for 3 mm. But I have to have at least 1000gram thinsulate in the boot. Nothing worse than COLD feet. I'm shopping now for clothing for deer hunting. The pants that I have found are made for men. We need hip room to fit our curves. I found a good taylor, so I'm going to have her fit them to me.
I guess styles for women will not happen until more of us start hunting. I have talked to several manufactures and they say there is just not a big demand for women clothing for hunting yet. They only make a few item for us. Mostly for upland and fishing.

Try this link, I saw it posted in anther forum. I saw a numbers count recently that said women are the fastest growing part of the hunting industry so the manufacturerers should start paying attention to your needs pretty soon.

Jesse, you are my hero. ###I love this Tomboy site. ###I found the unlined camo bib cargo pants I had been looking for. ###Yeah! ###I was trying to using some made for men and had too much room in all the wrong places and not enough in others!:smile-wink: ###And really, what am I going to do with a zipper that zips open from the bottom?!
Thanks for the post.

Ya know what would be really nice? If these manufacturers clued that not all women have short legs!!
If you look at your list for the sizes of the waders, I'd have to get a large(me and two others would fit) to be long enough, I'm 5'7" and I weigh 105lbs. soaking wet...lol
Even the pants in all the catalogs I have seen the longest inseam is (if your really lucky) 32inches. This skinny chick has a 33 inch inseam, course 32 ain't bad but most of them have a max of 28-30in. inseam. I would really like to find just one pair of pants that don't stop above my ankles.

So, what you saying is, you are tall AND skinny?! What, and I am supposed to feel bad for you! Forget it!
Just kidding. Until we get more women buying hunting clothes, it will be expensive and sizes will be limited. I do my best with stuff made for men, but I hate that extra baggy stuff around the crotch. I guess I should learn to sew.
