Thread: what brand wood you reccomend ????

    what brand wood you reccomend ????

    Hi chaps, im wanting to get a new stalking suit for a xmas present, not camo. Ive bin lookong round and there are quite a few firms etc and brands like seeland, swedteam, an jahtijakt etc offering good suit and deals but im unsure what to go for. My budget is about £180. I will be wearing if for hill and woodland stalks. What are your reccomendations thank you very much for your time and help.

    Quality wise they're all pretty much of a muchness. My advice would be go to the shop and see which of the fabrics you prefer...some are not really up to crawling through the heather. Also, some brands fit some people better than others.

    I've been using Seeland it's it's big brother Harkila for a couple of years and get on very well with them but I will say...the Seeland Beater fabric is perhaps a tad on the lightweight side for hill stalking. Have you considered getting a pair of tweed breeks instead of the trousers...they'll do you for years and be warm in the wet.

    Jahtijakt , very popular here in Sweden seem to be good value for money.
    Seeland and Härkila are the same company Seeland being a bit cheaper than Härkila. Both brands popular here. I use the Härkila Prohunter jacket and Trousers in there second season and very pleased with them. But our hunting is a lot of following the dog or standing around in the freezing cold. Costs a tad more than 180 quid though
    God bless Mr Gore and Mr Tex

    Last time i read shooting time there was a deal in there, a seeland suit (waterproof jacket and trousers) for £150, looked quite a good deal to me.

    Not sure where it was that was doing the promotion though.

    I'd second Jagare's endorsement of Harkila. I've had one of their camo fleece-y type jackets for about the last 4 years. I don't know the model name but it looks like it's made of teddy bear type material ( ), it's warm as toast and super-waterproof.

    If you want non-camo, a lot of people seem to like the Nomad range -

    Jaht -Jakt
    I ordered a set from an offer in basc mag , 10 items EXCELLENT KIT very warm silent and light , ALSO IMPORTANTLY keeps you dry! Kinda Loden green in colour, and you won't look like a waif when you are out prospecting. Mine was £210 for the lot but if you omit the elmer fud hat, dayglow vest , you should come out on budget !I became a Gigalo for a nite to up my budget But the wife doesn't know so Shush eh
    Regards Trapper
    ps Harlika , Seeland , Deerhunter, Deertex. all have a shout as well

    I was still in tweeds and old cammo jackets until recently but have discoverd nomad smocks recently.

    Jahtijakt and Seeland are low budget gear. I've tried both and ended up regretting the learning experience.

    Härkila is good but Nomad is best of all.

    Nomad usually have a January factory sale where you can pick up some real end of season bargains.

    I like Trapper have a Jakti-jakt suit.

    I bought one of these suits when they firstcame over here about 5-7 years ago i think.
    You can not beat them for the money ,you used to get a lot more with the offer than you do today.
    Mine has been mainly used for beating and lamping at night and it has had some abuse.
    As you said your on a budget.
    PM me and I can give you a number of a guy who does Deerhunter etc at good prices and if you mention the SD site he might do you a deal.
