Default Shooting Jacket Recommendations?

So, having attended my first Appleseed recently I learned two things... these events are excellent, and my elbows cannot take anymore hot brass. In the interest of general skin preservation, I have decided I need to find an appropriate shooting jacket. At the event I was pointed toward the jackets for sale at, but unfortunately they are out of "XL Right" and don't expect to get any more in. So, the question now is what do experienced calgunners recommend?

I tried ordering from freds - they lost my order

I ended up getting mine from - nice jacket, and Mary is a nice person to deal with.

What's the difference between "Shooting jacket" and "jacket"? Padded elbows?

Creedmore sports if you want to stay in the game and willing to spend some good coin for quality, they're in Oceanside and can visit their shop.

You can also find USMC green shooting jackets hella cheap. They run alittle big and offer a good snug fit it you wear a sweater underneath.

40 or 44? Half what a new one would cost you:
