Why we love the Badlands Detour Hoodie:

As someone who sews my own clothes occasionally, I was instantly in love with the detailed measuring instructions for the clothing lines on the Badlands' website. I tend to mix and match my hunting gear and hoodies are always my staple piece. My measurement for my arm length is 32.5 inches. This tends to leave me with exposed wrists in most brands or I have to size up. I ordered this hoodie in a small based on my chest measurement and it worked great.

The Detour Hoodie is water-repellent. I have found the Detour Hoodie to work great in the wind and light rain thanks to its water-repellent features. The PrimaLoft filling adds an advantage over your typical hoodie. The hood is the perfect length to slide over your ponytail and you do not have to maneuver it out of the way for anchoring in archery.

I have found this lightweight hoodie to be the perfect solution for morning ranch feeding and working in the field with my gun dogs. The wind and water-repellant properties make a perfect addition for late-season skiing and as a pack-along item for fishing or those afternoon mountain rain showers. As a purveyor of all things outdoors, I found the camouflage to fit perfectly to mountain hunting and walking upland fields.

The Detour Hoodie has a convenient zip kangaroo pouch if you are prone to dropping things out of your pocket (are you as clumsy as we are?!). My glass-over slate turkey call fits just right. It's also the perfect place for a snack, a gun dog first aid kit, or your rangefinder.

I cannot wait to try it in a tree stand or crawling after a mule deer through the willows this fall.

The Detour Hoodie from Badlands is the perfect addition to my repertoire in my love of all things outdoors.
