Thread: Shooting/Stalking suit

    Shooting/Stalking suit

    Does anyone own and have any comments to make on the following suits:

    1. Jahti Jakt Thorn
    2. Swedteam Granasen
    3. Laksen Mufflon

    Iím after a wind/water proof and breathable jacket and trouser suit between £200 and £350 thatís smart enough to wear on a driven day and also hardwearing enough to wear out beating/stalking without soaking me in my own sweat!

    Before it gets mentioned Iíve thought about pushing the boat out and buying a harkila pro-hunter or nomad suit, but I just canít afford that right now. The Jahti Jakt Thorn is right at the top of my price range and only considering it as it comes with tonnes of extras

    The jahti Jakt range was the first suit i ever bought 7 or 8 years ago for the full sum of £180 from sporting gun.
    It has lasted very well but no longer waterproof as youd imagine.You do get an awfull amount of stuff for the money when you buy a set,base layer,fleece,etc and i would'nt hesistate to but one in the future.
    what swayed it for me was watching a programme with jonny kingdom and reindeer in greenland and the guide had the same suit.

    I bought the laksen trousers while at this years CLA in honesty not sure which perticular type but it has been exeptional in the foulest of weathers uptill now,stalking,beating everything.

    I would also consider and reccomend the country covers range of clothing,me personally i'm very happy with them.

    My recommendation is for Jahti Jakt (no connection), I've had a classic suit, a pro suit and the camo suit, and cannot fault them at all.

    The classic was the first and kept me dry on Arran when we had 4 inches of rain on one day, when getting back to auchrannie hotel a number of stalkers were soaked, and had sleeves full of water, I was completely dry. Only complaint with the original classic suit was the zips/vents on the trouser pockets, the midges seemed to be able to find that tiny hole every time...

    I then bought the Pro suit, and one for the missus, and both have been worn fishing/shootin/stalking an dog walking and again have worn well, and are both warm and dry.

    I then picked up the camo suit, and it is now my main stalking suit, I have worn it in all seasons, and the layer system means you can suit ( no pun) the conditions, even just wearing the fleece in the summer evenings. It is not quite as heavy/warm as the pro and classic, but the under layers are the new dry tech material, which I find warmer than the traditional fleece type long johns etc,

    Good Luck.

    I bought a laksen forest jacket to replace my deerhunter montana and while not as versatile with no removeable fleece i find the build quality much better than deerhunter.
