If you're warm, dry and comfortable, you're going to shoot better. But different weather means you're going to have different clothing needs. So we've picked out a selection of shooting coats and jackets, in a variety of price ranges, that will fit the seasons.

Shooting coats vary perhaps more than any other item of shoot clothing, both in terms of price and in terms of functionality. Here it’s vital to ask not just what you will pay for your coat, but what you’ll want your coat to do for you. If you simply want to keep out the cold while standing still on a peg, it’s a relatively basic matter. However if you need more, you’ll probably have to spend more.

Of course you want to look good but flexibility, warmth and concealment are all desirable. GORE-TEX® has revolutionised shooting kit in recent years and many of the major fieldsports retailers, like Barbour, Musto and Schoffel include it in their range, sometimes hidden behind traditional tweeds.
