Spring Reviews

LL Bean Primaloft Vest

Carson Shirtjac from Toad

Just in time for spring riding season, we’re putting together an interesting and varied collection of reviews from and for horse and outdoors-y gals.

In the coming weeks, Katrin Silva, Julie Kenney and Maddy Butcher will review quality gear from Toad & Co., LL Bean, and Patagonia. Check out what’s coming:

Three rain jacket options:

LL Bean’s Trail Model Rain Jacket – redesigned to be tougher and more weatherproof. It’s affordable and comes in zippy colors.

Patagonia’s Calcite Jacket, helmet friendly, made from recycled materials and in stylish colors, for when you really cannot afford to get wet.


Patagonia Calcite Jacket is helmet-friendly

Patagonia’s Rainshadow Jacket – also helmet-friendly, this jacket is light, stretchy, and packable. A rain jacket that’s stretchy? Yes!

Tops for a variety of temperatures and conditions:

From LL Bean, the Herringbone Full Zip jacket, a flattering yet practical performance jacket, and the Primaloft Packaway Vest. (Who doesn’t need a vest anytime, any where? This one’s made with Primaloft Gold, even warmer than past models.)

From Toad & Co. the Carson Shirtjac, stylish, made of organic cotton with a tad of stretch, and the Recycled Denim Pullover, in an array of muted colors consisting of denim and polyester blends.

From Patagonia, the Capilene Cool Trails Shirt, quick drying and super soft, with a flattering scoop neck.
