Shooting apparel of the year – Harkila Pro Hunter Jacket
This jacket is an all round sportsman’s jacket. The fabric is incredibly quiet, and robust so as to move silently through thick brambles making it perfect for stalking deer.
It’s also warm, although not so warm that it’s only suitable for really cold weather. The jacket is lined with a soft ‘woodland’ inner and GORE-TEX membrane. Pockets are also micro-fleece lined. To help regulate temperature and ventilation there are zippered vents under the arms.
The jacket is cut to allow for easy movement and the elastic toggle-lock drawstring assists for comfort. The cuffs can be adjusted with velcro to fit over gloves. The front zip has a wind panel that fastens with crisply snapping poppers and the removable hood is attached with a zip. The collar is a high fit and zips up to below the chin.
There are fleece lined hand pockets in the chest area. A two-way radio pocket sits high up on the chest and a fully lined game pocket is accessed by a zip to the right rear. There are two generously large inner pockets and a chest pocket between the zip and the wind flap that can be accessed when the jacket is zipped up.
