Runs a little Small
How is the quality? Does it have every feature you need?
Great quality, it just ran a little small. My wife wears a size 0-2 which would be an XS according to Drake's sizing. I went ahead and ordered a size up though so she would be able to comfortably layer her down puffer under it when it gets real cold. However, it was to tight across the back and the arms were to tight to layer under. If I was buying the coat for looks over function then it would have been fine, but she had difficulty raising her gun to her shoulder and that was without anything layered under the jacket. I am sending back the S and getting a M. Hopefully that won't be to huge on her.
What do you like or dislike about the features?
Love the materials. Very high quality unlike must women's outdoor wear which tends to feel cheap. I have no doubt the jacket would hold up to wear and tear in the field.
Do you think this item is a good value?
Fairly reasonably priced. I wish Drake made a combo of the MST and LST jackets. An MST jacket that had a hood and the entire jacket was waterproof.
Which flyway do you hunt in?
Please give your general opinion of this product.
Drake has the best quality jackets for women waterfowlers. The sizing is just off. I think they shrunk the men's jacket to fit women instead of building a women's jacket from the ground up. It's okay for the MST jacket since it fits under the waders, the shoulders and arms just need to be cut better.
