Thread: Harkila Pro Hunter VS Harkila Pro Hunter Active

    Harkila Pro Hunter VS Harkila Pro Hunter Active

    Hi,

    I am going to buy myself some Harkila Pro Hunter trousers. I have been told that the active trousers better than the standard pro hunters, they have a better fit apparently. The knees are shaped and the crotch is re designed.

    Does anyone own a pair of each and could give an impartial comparison?

    Cheers

    The guy a swillingtons said that the knees were shaped, also the crotch is re designed so they don't rub on your meat and 2 veg when walking. Not sure if they a worth the extra 35 or not?

    The active's are a better fit as has already been said around the grion and waist. The kness are articulated and there are straps on the calves to pull any loose material in should you need that. They also have vent zips on the hip to open up if you being particularly ..err......active. My view is much more comfortable.

    Hope that helps

    For anyone other than a wheelchair user you will be wetter from the condensation and sweat build up inside pro hunter trousers than you would wearing a pair of wheelie bin liners. Unless you are only wearing them to stand still in or show others that you have aspired to the Harkila brand.

    Save your money. Honestly. I've got some!(pro hunters.....not money).

    I disagree, they are bloody good trousers. I used mine all through last year in all weathers without too much discomfort.

    Not about brand loyalty or wearing the most gucci kit but I rate them as suiting me for stalking. Far better than the Laksen and deerhunter I had before

    +1 with PointBlank, worn mine most of the year and there excellant trousers, dont think i wore them much in the summer though where i think they could be quite warm. Best thing I think is not getting soaking legs/knees when stalking and kneeling in mud but then the mud just dries and brushes off.
