Practical and stylish women's safari jackets and vests are quite hard to find. Women often end up buying men's safari clothing and compromising on fit and comfort.
The features of good women's safari jackets are much the same as for men. However, if you are not hunting or walking in the African bush, you can be more flexible with muted colours, not so many pockets or shooting features and cosiness for chilly early mornings.
