Prois was among the first companies dedicated solely to designing and manufacturing hunting clothing tailored to a woman’s specific anatomy and needs, and its still among the best. Over the years, they’ve polled, focus-grouped, innovated and overall just refused to rest on its Cumbre-camouflaged laurels … and Spring 2020’s line is ongoing proof. Their latest woman’s hunting line is the Solas line, and if the name makes you think of the warming rays of the sun, you’re right there on the #samepage with the women of Prois!
Depending on where you live, spring temperatures can be anywhere from near freezing in the mornings to darn-near summer weather by midday. The obvious answer to that dilemma is layering, but layering needs to be done very differently in warmer weather. The Solas line—which comprises pants and a long-sleeved shirt—is the layer you’ve been looking for underneath that heavy jacket that got you out to your blind in the pre-dawn hours. Why?
Well, first of all, the shirt has antimicrobial treatment to help with odor control. (Spring turkeys may not have great senses of smell, but spring bears and wild hogs sure do!) Secondly, both shirt and pants are airy light and buttery soft for warm-weather comfort. The shirt offers UV protection for you as the sun hits you, so you can leave the jacket off, but it also is long enough to keep you protected from the ticks that live in the long grass of spring. Both the pant and the shirt are stretchy and breathable, and the pants feature a hidden elastic waistband to conform to lots of body types (and keep you comfy if you need to get into an odd position and stay there a while in order to get a bead on your game animal).
The Solas line is adorned in the Cumbre pattern from Veil Camo. What’s interesting about the Cumbre pattern is that it was designed to work well with a wide variety of environmental colors. It contains both macro disruption and textural disruption strategies that come together in one of the most aggressive, high functioning and visually distinctive patterns available. Mirroring elements from a diverse western landscape, the colorations provide excellent concealment in all regions. The color palette is a careful combination of tones pulled directly from the field and used in a calculated fashion to ensure maximum performance.
The MSRP for the Solas pants is $119.99; for the shirt, $79.99. Click here to learn more.
