Free Country Mens Summit II Softshell Jacket ~ Finding Mens XXL Sizes

My Hubs has always had such a hard time finding clothing to fit his XXL Size.     Well not any more he doesn't,  Free Country carries Mens Medium, Large, Xtra Large and XXLarge sizes.

I can't tell you what a relief it is to find so many stylish jackets all in one store. You can shop for your whole family here.  Free Country not only carries mens jackets, pants, hats, gloves and swimwear, but Womens jackets, pants, swimwear and they also carry Plus Sizes. If you have kids, they also have Boys and Girls Jackets at very, very low prices.



 
We ordered the Men's Summit II Softshell Jacket in the Fire Brick color. It is water and wind resistant on the outside with a soft fleece lining on the inside. Perfect for the cool, windy, rainy spring days ahead. 

Hubs decided this is the perfect fishing jacket....   I said NO!!  It is way to nice for that.  His reply was, you should watch the fishing shows and see what they wear fishing. 
















I admit, the jacket is wind and rain resistant so it would be great for being out in the elements.  It also has a warm fleece lining to help keep him warm and toasty.

  When I found out it was machine washable, I had no problem letting him wear it fishing.    But my question is,    Why do they get their nice clothing and jackets on to go out fishing?   Just seems silly to me.   Must be a MAN thing!

Here is my Hubs heading to the grocery store for me.  Look how vibrant the color still is after washing the jacket.

After my Hubs fishing episode, I threw the jacket in the laundry.      This jacket is not only stylish but is extremely durable.  It doen't even look like I washed it.

I almost forgot to show you, check out all the zippered pockets in this jacket, they hold my Hubs cell phone and his wallet.

What Did My Husband Say About The Jacket
The very first time he put this on,... he had just been complaining how cold he was.   He put the jacket on and just a few minutes later said..."Wow is this jacket warm"    Then he proceeded to fill all the pockets with his many treasures.   

After seeing how durable and well made this jacket was , I have my eye on this Womens Acadia Softshell Jacket.  So Nice!!  It would work out great for bike riding .... If we got caught in the rain, it would help repell the rain and keep me warm at the same time.

  3. My husband has a hard time finding XXL Clothes too. Finding a coat was a real pia for his trip to Washington this month. I am going to bookmark this site and have him reference it the next time he goes clothes shopping!

    1. Hi Betsy,
      Style and comfort are one thing my Hubs has always had trouble finding. He could never find both together. This jacket he says is very comfortable. and I love the style.

      It really isn't for winter, but it blocks the wind and perfect for a rainy day because it repels water.

    Nice jacket. There was a clue when he said, "You should watch the fishing shows and see what they're wearing," that he not only wanted to be warm he wanted to look like the other fishermen. Lots of fly fishing here and those guys all have the same outfits. He looks very good in his jacket. Also, a good post.
    Sorry I must have missed a post....Cody has been quite sick and I've been going to the vet with her.

    1. Hahahahah, Manzanita.... he would love it if I would watch those fishing shows with him. I just get so bored with them.

      Hope Cody gets to feeling better. So sad when our pets get sick.

      Large sizes can be a BEAR to find. Especially in a nice looking jacket that doesn't look like a tent.

  15. Your husband had a point about the clothes they wear on the fishing shows. :)

    Glad he found a jacket he likes. I think it's awesome that it's machine washable.

    1. Rosey!!! Don't let my Hubs hear you say that about the fishing shows. He will want to wear a tie and sports jacket out there next.

  16. Greetings human,

    Yes, it's me, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar! Your hubby wears that jacket well and it sure looks like he needs something warm to wear.

    My human wears a jumper. Every time he wears it he hops around. Take me ages to get him out the door and take him for a walk. With that, I shall um pullover and go back to my human's site.

    Pawsitive wishes,

    Penny :)

  17. I'm on the other side of the size spectrum, but little girl clothes are for little girls (without curves). What to do? I know the victory of finding something that fits right.

    Thanks for visiting so I could discover, and follow, your blog.
    Cheers.

      I always tell my Hubs he should wear summer colors. He used to wear darker colors and it made his skin look so ruddy.... Finally he is listening to me.

  25. It is hard to find bigger sizes like my hubs needs too. I wonder why as America seems to be needing bigger sizes?
    It looks nice on your hubs

  26. Love the color and style of this jacket and I really love how well it washed up. It does look like it's never been washed

  27. My spouse is also an XXL. We've been able to get him good clothes that fit well at LL Bean. Thanks for pointing me at Free Country. I've bookmarked it so I'll have an alternative place to look for gifts for him when his birthday rolls around.

  28. This does look warm. I like that it's machine washable and wears well...nothing's worse than ratty old jackets that the menfolk insist upon wearing long past being presentable because they're comfy.

  29. I stopped over and checked out their ladies jackets and I love a turquois one I found there. Might just have to order it.

  33. I liked this review and I love outdoor wear. Tell your husband that those guys on the fishing shows are probably wearing clothing by sponsors, LOL! I love that it is machine washable, I only own clothing that is machine washable!
