Thread: Loden suits

  1. #1

    Loden suits

    I fancy getting myself a loden type shooting suit, jacket, trousers, hat similar to the one in the link below:

    http://jagdhund.com/en/men/jackets/gamskogel/

    Anyone know anywhere in this country who sell them?

    The price from Germany is pretty pricey and if I get stung for any duties as well, it would be extortionate.

    Cheers

    You shouldn't get stung for any duty if it is from Germany, the benefit of the common market. Just the same as buying from anywhere within this country.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    No duties thank to the splendid EU! That's a nice jacket, but the suggested matching hat is awful.

    Here's a question by the way: why do almost no shooting coats and jackets have hoods? There's not much point in expensively building in GoreTex and everything just to leave your head exposed. I realise there's a possible blinkering effect for shooting, but generally, hoods are a winning design feature.

    Because shooters wear hats.

    I have two shooting coats that have hoods. Thankfully they can be unzipped and removed as they serve no useful purpose whatsoever.

    Oh they do ;-)
    They are ideal in a high seat - it prevents the twigs and leaves falling down your kneck when the squirrel gets busy above your seat

    That's good news about not paying any extra.

    This being the case, any recommendations for a trustworthy outfitter on the continent?

    How about Frankonia or Kettner ?

    Have dealt with both in the past and both were very good.

    I wear a hat but now I'm feeling my age in the colder months I won't buy a coat or indeed midlayer that is without a hood. It has to be INTEGRAL too and not detachable.
