Today there is womens camo clothing actually designed and manufactured for women who enjoy the hunt, but it wasn't always this way.
There was a time in fairly recent history when the only camouflage clothing available for women was fashion wear that fell short in performance while in the deer woods.
Admittedly, the ladies did look pretty darn good in it, but unfortunately, it was made incorrectly for use in the rugged out-of-doors and most ladies found it sorely lacking in utility and totally unsuitable for the serious hunting being done by the gals these days.
The choices in stylish, yet quality-made camouflage hunting apparel for women are becoming more numerous, desirable and useful in the field, it should have been made that way from day one.
Quality outdoor clothing is now readily available from multiple sources and it's specifically designed to fit and benefit the female form in all sorts of ways.
Many of the ladies are finding their camo clothing a real pleasure to wear in the field and by the way, everywhere else too.
We've spotted a significant number of the gals wearing their camo at the mall as well as in the woods – yeah, we get it, mall hunting is a different kind of hunting. . .but it's still hunting. . .
Let's take a closer look at what's going on in the womens camo clothing world. . .
Womens Camo Clothing Items Must Be Designed Correctly
There are specific and desirable features the ladies need to search for in properly designed and manufactured ladies' hunting apparel as compared to men's hunting clothes.
Womens camo clothing jackets and shirts should, depending on a gal's specific physical features of course, be of a shorter length from the shoulders to the waist.
The same is true of ladies' hunting vests.
Midsections should be tapered to eliminate the unnecessary fabric bulk that inevitably shows up when attention to detail in women's outdoor wear is not observed.
Tops should have appropriate chest darts for women's bust lines and consideration for ventilation in women's outdoor clothing must be planned for since outdoor pursuits can require significant exertion from time to time.
Additionally, triangular inset seams and gusseted underarms are needed in women's camo clothing for extra mobility and flexibility, particularly for the increasing numbers of (excellent) female bow hunters.
Shirt tails should be extra long so they will remain tucked in during physical motion involving the twisting, turning and bending movements common in the woods when hunters pursue wild game.
A basic shirt such as Under Armour Womens Evo Camo Long Sleeve Shirt fills all these requirements to a “T” for active women.
It is fitted, soft, and has the Signature Moisture Transport System to wick away sweat and keep the skin dry.
Scent Control suppresses odors while Armour Block effectively neutralizes bacteria-causing odors that may betray a hunter's position to the game being stalked.
Its Ergonomic Flatlock seams allow you to move freely and prevent any rubbing and chaffing.
It is judiciously designed and wisely executed in Realtree® AP/Fawn® camouflage print for the most discriminating and expert lady hunters.
Modern Womens Camo Clothing Looks Great And Fits Right
The pants in womens camo clothing should usually be smaller in the waist but then again, wider in the hips than men's camo pants.
Elastic waists are best for field use, to accommodate layered dressing for winter hunts.
Belt loops (the substantial kind that will actually hold a belt in position during outdoor pursuits) are important for your belt, knife and extra hunting accessories.
Zip pant cuff openings are very easy to use when it comes to taking your hunting clothing on and off over your hunting boots but adjustable Velcro™ tabs can work well also.
Heavy-duty cargo pockets are a must and along with reinforced knees will extend the life of your hard-working outdoor garment.
Remember, when you're trying on women's camo clothing pants in a store, make sure you can move about easily, especially ensure that you can both kneel and squat which at one time or another are commonly required positions for all hunters when in the woods.
RedHead® Stalker Lite II Camo Pants for Ladies have these attributes and are well worth your time and consideration when checking out quality hunting clothing for upcoming hunts.
An elastic waist, two large, strong cargo pockets, two button-flap back pockets and tie closing cuffs make these 100 percent polyester pants extremely convenient for hunting and other outdoor activities.
The quiet, lightweight, moisture-wicking, four-way stretch fabric makes RedHead® Stalker Lite II Camo Pants for Ladies very comfortable.
After some quality time in the woods with these pants, you'll really appreciate quality womens camo clothing.
Many Camo Clothing Items For Women Are Very High Tech
Coats sold as ladies hunting apparel these days should offer more high tech options like scent blocking, reinforced shooting patches and insulated or non-insulated options.
Zip vents, cargo pockets for ammo and windproof fabric options are also very helpful and desirable.
Cabela's Women's OutfitHER™ 4-in-1 Parka demonstrates the characteristics needed in modern womens camo clothing coats.
Designed specifically for women, this 100 gram Thinsulate™ insulated coat is waterproof, seam sealed, breathable and has articulated arms for easy and natural movement afield.
Its brushed tricot polyester is quiet, soft and it won't bulk up and get in the way.
You can wear the clear shell alone or the reversible liner alone, or the liner and shell together – this women's parka from Cabela's is a stellar example of how quality women's camo clothing should be made.
The cuffs have hook and loop closures that provide extra comfort and clearance for your wrists.
There are also five pockets, an off-set front zipper and an adjustable two-way hood – now we're getting somewhere.
The parka and liner are available in Mossy Oak® Break-Up® Infinity™ camouflage.
All these features definitely show that manufacturer's are acutely aware of women's needs and wants as both hunters and outdoorswomen.
Quality Women's Camo Boots Are Also Available
There are more choices nowadays of womens camo clothing in quality hunting boots as well.
There are some boots built specifically for the structure and size of the female foot these days and more are being developed and manufactured every year.
RedWing® makes the excellent Irish Setters' Ladyhawk Boots and Danner produces Womens High Ground 8 Realtree® XTRA® 1100 gram Hunting Boots, both quality brands are specifically designed and manufactured with great care for the shape and support requirements of a woman's foot.
The also excellent Under Armour® Speed Freak Non-Insulated Waterproof Hunting Boot for Ladies comes in Realtree® AP Timber™ camouflage and is built with extra arch support for comfortable hours on the hunt.

There is much to choose from, so compare and evaluate your clothing and footwear choices carefully.
