Options for Women’s Range Pants..That are Still Feminine

Anybody should feel their best when they look their best and can perform their best with what they are wearing. Many women's pants in the firearms industry don't allow us to do that. Here is a list of what this female shooter has found for comfortable yet feminine pants that allow us to perform in the outdoors.

Gone are the days that shooters want to actually look like they are going to the range. Those khaki cargo pants with the large ugly pockets draws attention and just isn’t attractive. This goes for women and…men. (Yup, you guys don’t look great either) So what are womens options that still give protection to our skin, the ability to stretch and move, and look good? Here is what I have found (and still wear) to be comfortable pants with enough pockets to get the job done and still make me look like a feminine outdoorsman. Yes, with belt loops too.

Note: These will be organized by pant material and season. I will also put my size as a comparison. I am 5’2 and 130 lbs.
