The jacket has a removable inner fleece which can be dispensed with in summer but which keeps you warm on the coldest winter day.

I struggled to find anything, which I didn’t like about it – the polyester outer shell shed water and the inner nylon lining did a great job of keeping out the wind.

The material used is lightweight and silent which made it perfect for my stalking and shooting and the no-nonsense heavy duty front zip has so far performed faultlessly.

Both inner and outer pockets are a generous size for carrying cartridges and accessories and the hood supplied comes in handy both for keeping the rain off and shielding my face while stalking with the rifle.

Considering the level of performance it’s competitively priced too.

Sportschief Aquatex All Year 3-way jacket £189.95 and trousers £89.95
