Triple Aught Design's (TAD) Valkyrie Hoodie LT
Voted great performance wear for women.
Rolla, MO –-(Ammoland.com)- Triple Aught Design’s (TAD) Valkyrie Hoodie LT will be a favorite for many women. This hoodie is functional, durable, and feminine … three words that can rarely be used in the same sentence.
The Valkyrie Hoodie LT is fitted to nicely contour a women’s body. It was designed to eliminate excess bulk, which can impede certain activities. The fit of this hoodie makes it perfect for many outdoor activities. I found this jacket to be especially suited for use while shooting firearms. The slender silhouette and short length allows the user to tuck it in, thereby eliminating obstructions around and near the holster and magazine pouches.
This hoodie is a great outer layer for cool days. I found that I was most comfortable in the Valkyrie when temperatures were in the 50’s and 60’s. For temperatures cooler than 50 degrees, however, I would recommend coupling this with an outer shell.
The Valkyrie Hoodie LT offers several desirable features, including; six pockets, discreetly placed underarm vents, and thumb and headphone slots. The Valkyrie holds up to machine washing (I did not dry it in the dryer). I did not note any dramatic changes in fit, performance, or appearance.
Triple Aught Design classifies this hoodie as performance gear. It definitely fits into that category, but I confess that I find myself wearing it at times when I am not ‘performing’ at all. I wear it lounging around my house, back and forth to work, and when I run errands. This is one of the most comfortable articles of clothing I own.
My only ‘gripe’ to Triple Aught Design is that black is the only color option. Black is a solid and safe color, but I find myself constantly wondering why men get more (and generally better) color options than women. I applaud TAD for designing a feminine fitting jacket, but I have one question, how ‘bout some OD green for the girls?
