Thread: Coat choice

  1. #1

    Coat choice

    Howdo,
    Ive been offered a few jackets. One is a Musto Westmoor and an Arktis smock. The Arktis is three times the price of the Musto though.
    Which would you guys recommend?

    I have a Musto Westmoor, it's more of an about town or poncing about with shotguns jacket than a proper stalking coat. i.e. wouldn't cope with mud or even look at barbwire without tearing.

    No experience of Arktis.

    How does the Arktis compare to the likes of Harlika and Seeland? Ive not heard of them before.

    maybe watching your friend there has fried my brain, but if the Musto is 150ish and you're looking at something 3 times the price, then I would just get a Harkila Prohunter and pocket the difference.

    Oh no. The musto is much less. They are less than that new.

    A lot of the Arktis and Country Covers type stuff is based on the military Windproof smock. You can buy the mil surplus ones new off ebay for less than 20, sometimes less than 10 if you watch carefully. If you are really worried about being waterproof then Country Covers or Arktis sell a waterproof liner for about 50 and if you wash them in nikwax wash in waterproofing for cotton they are pretty waterproof anyhow. Saves enough cash to pay for a few days stalking or a good part of a syndicate membership.

    Cheers. Tbh if it's raining that hard I'm not going to be out, just I've been stuck in a few showers recently and it's been a little chilly, especially when it's sleeting.
