Getting ready for the game season this year and needing some inspiration for the right kit?
ArdMoor can give you top tips on shooting clothing and accessories to keep you protected from the elements and give you a successful day on the field. Whether you are stalking, game shooting, hunting or clay shooting, we can offer you options that will suit your need and your budget!
Choosing the right shooting jacket for you is vital as it will keep you comfortable and protected allowing you to enjoy your day and have a successful shoot. Things to consider include how breathable and waterproof you need the jacket to be, if there is flexibility in movement and if there would be any noise while moving.
A stylish and versatile option that would suit most hunting activities would be the Deerhunter Lady Chasse Jacket. Waterproof and windproof the Lady Chasse is lightweight, noiseless and has a quick-drying material so if you do get caught in a downpour the jacket will dry quickly. A 100% breathable lining will wick moisture away from the skin so when you are on the move, the jacket will help regulate the moisture built up within. A host of pockets is great for holding all your shooting accessories and keeping personal belongings close at hand.
Pair your Deerhunter Lady Chasse Jacket with the Deerhunter Lady Chasse Trousers for a complete look. A durable pair of trousers finished with DWR treatment to repel dirt and water, the Lady Chasse trousers are breathable and light so you can freely move across the field. Nice finishes such as a hidden knife pocket and added thigh pockets can hold any dog leads, ammunition, or gloves with easy and quick access.
Another option for durable trousers are the Seeland Key-Point Lady Trousers to give you breathable versatile trousers in a high quality waxed poly-cotton mix. Designed specifically for outdoor adventures, the Key-Point Lady trousers can be worn for all manners of shooting and dog handling.
Heading out for a full day on the field and not sure what the weather will bring? A great way to deal with a mixture of temperatures is to layer up. Now that you have your breathable jacket organised, build the layers underneath so if you are stationary for a while you will benefit from the heat from a cosy fleece such as the Seeland Woodcock Fleece Women’s Jacket. Match this with a breathable base layer and gilet and you can regulate your temperature depending on your activity. The Baleno Sally Fleece Gilet is a great companion for autumn shoots, giving you a cosy layer for under jackets or on its own with a Jack Pyke Ladies Countryman checked shirt for the ultimate country look
A host of accessories to complete your outfit include gloves, hats and cosy socks and don’t forget your gaiters for when you are wading through wet terrain. Lightweight shooting gloves can enhance your shoot as your hands are kept warm and flexible. The Chevalier Light Shooting Glove are lightweight sleek gloves that will move with you while giving need grip on the palms for reinforcement. Finally, keep your head warm on cold winter days with a cosy Deerhunter Lady Knitted Headband, fitting snugly to your head, and keeping in place while you move around.
