Thread: New Jacket for Gameshooting

    New Jacket for Gameshooting

    Can anyone recommend a new jacket for Game shooting, I currently have a Musto Whisper that is getting tired. Last week I went to my local outfitter in search of a new coat. Tried on the Barbour Endurance Range as the Musto's dont look to be as durable as they were.
    Now I'm normally a size large (42 inch chest), now a large in Barbour would fit a Rhino, tried on a Medium, the arms were too short. I'm 6ft tall, 42 inch chest, and have a 32 inch waist so slim around the middle. Everything available these days seems to be built to fit the "fuller figure".

    Can anyone advise a good, durable, waterproof jacket for game shooting that's suitable for the slimmer figure. Or do I just need to fatten up a little???

    Has anyone any experience of the Harkilla Pro Hunter??

    Hi Sako hunter,

    I have a harkila pro hunter and its great 10 out of 10. I would also suggest swazi I have one over 7 years now never let me down. For game shooting ie. looking the part try Harkila or Seeland. Really anything with goretex and you will be warm and happy.

    Regards,
    Glendine.

    I had the same dilemma, and I eventually chose a Dubarry Bodkin. Tough as anything, warm, practical and a bit more tailored than other jackets - bit on the expensive side but I found a cheap local store. I then bought a lightweight Schoffel Ketton jacket for summer use - 100% water proof (proven on the highlands in August downpours), packs into its own internal pocket and very tough considering its weight.

    I use my 2 Stoney Creek smocks. The long sleeve shirt which is incredibly warm, shower proof and wind proof almost like a fleece. If needed Ill pop on the long bush coat which is storm proof and breathable. Even though they are smocks they look stylish for Game shooting. The 2 came from Bushwear and cost around 220 for the both.
