    A few months ago, I was searching for a new shooting jacket. I happened to stumble on a site that had what appeared to be the perfect jacket, but I got sidetracked, and never bookmarked the page, and I am having absolutely no luck finding it again. I'm not even sure I want to buy one, but its absolutely vexing me that I can't find the site again LOL. I don't think it was a company I had ever heard of, at least not one you'd think of as offering shooting jackets. I believe it was in the 200-300 dollar range.

    Here's what I know its not: Storm, Pavilion, Bob Allen/Boyt, Beretta, Browning, Flyer, Back Fence, Shoot the Moon, Cabela's, Orvis, or Musto.

    Throw out some other idea's, and maybe something will click for me, I'm sure I must not be the only person who's ever seen these jackets.

    I know the company was located in the US, and the site was the manufacturer's.

    One more for a Storm. I also will wear it riding the motorcycle and it keeps me VERY warm.

    I have seen them in Filson's catalog. Kind of pricy at around $400.00 but I'll bet its A good one as is all their other gear.

    Found it: http://riverswest.com/hifi_tactical.html

    Guess I must have requested a catalog, b/c one showed up tday, and this was the one I was looking for. Probably not going to buy one, but at least I don't have to try and find it anymore...

    If you would like a custom jacket/coat, left or right hand, your choice of shooting pad, I have enclosed a link above to a few that are available. Quilted nylon jackets are also available with large front pockets for shells/hulls too if you would send us your email, I will send you pictures. Most of these run from 49.00 to 89.00 depending on the jacket and shooting pad you would prefer. Sue at Pine Tree Custom Sportswear
