Ideally, when you're shopping for a sports jacket, you can visit a store and try on several styles. If you're buying a jacket that you plan to wear over several layers, pick a base layer shirt and a middle layer shirt from the rack and try them on with the jacket. You won't get a true sense of the fit if you want the jacket for winter wear and you're trying it on over a tank top in August.
Sports jackets are essentially unisex, but women with long arms, long torsos, or broad shoulders may find that men's jackets are a better fit. However, there are plenty of great styles for women. A must-have sports wear item for active women is Champion's Women's Cotton Jersey Hooded Zip Front Jacket. This sports wear is made of 100 percent cotton and has a shapely silhouette for a feminine look and the sleeves are roomy for the freedom to move.
