In Depth Tactical Solutions

While at the shooting range I wore the Eleanor jacket. It is not a tactical jacket for the range in the traditional sense. This jacket is form fitting, offers lots of flex while moving and is comfortable. It does look good. 

There are nice overlay details on the sleeves, shoulders and side panels. You can wear the collar up or down depending on how much cover that you want.

The material was a little thin for wear in Wyoming; a nice day of 55 degrees with 30mph winds is not a nice day. So the jacket did not do much in the sense of keeping me warm, I wore a t-shirt underneath, but I looked good. The jacket is very stylish. The sleeves fit snug but comfortably, and so there was no restriction of movement. The cross zipper added a stylish accent and I loved the oversized collar. The jacket can be zipped all the way up into a loose turtle neck style for added warmth if you please. The pockets on this jacket were oddly long, they reach to my lower back, but deep enough that you can actually put cellphones and small wallets in the pockets.

The structure of the jacket is slimming and for sure hugs the body in the right places. I truly enjoyed this jacket. The one downside is the collar will flip up a lot in the wind, which Wyoming is windy pretty much every day, so if you can handle the occasional collar hit in the face you should for sure consider the Eleanor jacket. Great jacket for mild weather conditions and stylish wear outdoors. Good to pair with athletic bottoms when coming or leaving the gym too.
