Upland hunters don’t have the luxury of sitting in a blind or hunkering down in a treestand, instead they are fully exposed to the elements so dressing for the weather is important. While most hunters probably have a decent upland vest, cold weather conditions that require a heavy coat can make those vests tough to get on over layers of bulky outerwear. The Cabela's® Instinct™ Prairie Runner Upland Jacket covers all the bases by providing a warm shell that insulates you from the elements but also equips hunters with all the practical pockets they need.
The Cabela's Instinct Prairie Runner Upland Jacket has a bunch of technology built in to shield you from the elements. 4MOST DRY-PLUS® combined with 4MOST REPEL™ provides a waterproof, yet breathable outer layer that repels moisture and seals the seams to make sure there aren’t places where moisture can penetrate your outer shell. It also works to cut the wind as you walk. Unlike other upland offerings that are constructed solely with stiff canvas, this jacket has nylon/spandex stretch panels that offer hunters more flexibility and mobility as they hunt. These easily accessible stretch panels also make it easier to stash your birds once you retrieve them. Plus, they are treated with 4MOST SHIELD technology that will repel any stains from a successful day afield. Zippers in the armpits allow hunters to customize ventilation as needed, elastic hem cord allows you to cinch the waistband of your coat in or out as desired and D-rings provide a place to attach accessories. An internal suspender system allows you to secure your jacket to your belt loops to evenly distribute the weight that can come with a pocket full of birds. Plus there are plenty of pockets for shell and gear storage. There is also an integrated hydration reservoir pocket so you can stay hydrated while you hunt. The Cabela's Instinct Prairie Runner Upland Jacket is a serious performance jacket for those upland hunters looking for a coat that will really deliver. It’s available at both Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops.
It’s also worth noting that, in addition to the coat mentioned above, the Cabela’s Instinct line of apparel has other great upland options for all conditions like a great button up Prairie Runner Shirt, a long sleeve Prairie Runner base layer and even Prairie Runner Pants. You can mix and match your apparel to create an upland hunting system that is most beneficial to you.
