Thread: Bloody clothing again

    Bloody clothing again

    Ok, Christmas is approaching, I need a new outfit. Mrs Weeman is prepared to contribute towards one. Loads has been mentioned of harkila. I've tried hharkila, I find it to heavy and with mixed reports spending close to 600 is to much of a punt. I currently have and enjoyed wearing jahti jakt found it to be very good. Light, breathable and rugged never had a problem. So why am I after advice. Well like all I want sometng different. I've already ruled out harkila. There seems so many out there. I'm leaning towards fjallraven as I can get good discount at a shop near me. I've heard good reports about rovince clothing, looks good. What's it like please towards breath ability and weight say compared to harkila.

    I understand everyone's opinions are different are different on a lot of things down to specifications.

    Good clothing deals on here come up. Just a shame everyone is not a stature of myself.

    Now a days, clothing appears to be big thick clothing. I find it hard to believe its as breathable as said.

    A "new outfit" for which season??

    My advise, season notwithstanding, is to mix & match. Layering is a key word too and of far more relevance than the brand. Only today I found myself stalking through woodland that felt more like a perfectly humid roe rut August morning than October so soaked was I in sweat even after shedding an Arktis "hot climate shirt" in DPM that I use as a lightweight jacket over a Paramo Mountain Vent Pull-On.

    The enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.

    The ONLY negative with Kuiu is the fact that you can only get it direct from Kuiu in the states... however, if you follow their sizing guide to the letter, you wont go far wrong...

    Amazing products, amazing company and, for what you get, damned good prices too!!!

    Got quite a bit of their gear now so if you want any real world help and advice from someone who uses the stuff just ask

    If you are after Fjallraven keep an eye on some of the online retailers such as and They have special offers on different products from time to time and you can pick up the Fjallraven hunting jackets at good prices: i.e. the best price I've seen on the Bjorn jacket was 190 compared to 325 rrp from the Fjallraven shop.

    I've got that jacket and it's just about right for UK conditions on it's own and with a light polartec fleece layer is toasty when it gets a bit chilly. Like all Scandinavian jackets you can size down for a good fit.

    If you don't mind last year's styles try the polish Ebay seller superoutlet15:
