As part of the Fieldpro collection from Hoggs of Fife, the Ladies Caledonia Tweed Jacket is a fantastic lightweight shooting jacket that is both practical and stylish. Hoggs of Fife has truly mastered the design of quality shooting garments, ensuring each item is suitable for many types of outdoor pursuits or, indeed, just for everyday wear! This tweed jacket has all the necessary design features to help keep you dry, comfortable and warm all day long.

This ladies shooting jacket has been fitted with an advanced ‘Proof-Tex TM’ membrane,(this is located between the outer tweed and the inner lining), which is highly waterproof, windproof and breathable. This membrane has been discreetly added to the garment, meaning that you wouldn’t even know its there if it wasn’t for the great protection it offers you against the elements!

In addition to this, the jacket has been Teflon TM coated for stain and rain resistance, which also helps to enhance the breathability of the fabric.

  • Pros: waterproof, breathable and Teflon coated
  • Cons: sizes are rather on the large size (Please see chart below)
