View Full Version : Huntech Stalker Jacket
Have any of you seen or heard of these,they look a excellent piece of kit.
Strikes me that if you are going to call it an improvement on a "Swannie" type jacket moving from wool to thermofleece is not the best direction to start in.
For a bushcraft jacket, wool offers fire resistance as well as warmth and durability.
I can't get onto the site - work software :banghead:
Is this the one shown in the current issue of Shooting Sports, I think it's in the 'what's new' page or something like that...
Materials aside I don't like the exposed zipped pockets but the "storm flap" around the neck area is an improvement on the laced & open-neck Swannie.
I can't recall the name of the company at the moment but my quarterly copy of the Bristish Deer Society journal always carries an advert for the UK importer of this kit.
id stick with a swannie,and i personally dont go in for the real tree patterns etc. ;)
Come on what is the fixation with wool,I have used Swanndris for years and they are a excellent piece of kit,heavy, heavier still when wet as for better fire resistance,be careful.In all the years that I have sat around a fire or done burn offs in forestry or scrub clearance I have not had holes in my clothing from the odd stray ember.
Wolf they also come in Olive not just camo.
As for the zips its a midlayer not a waterproof,and its got to be more comfortable then a swanndri to wear.
I'm sure this link has been listed elsewhere but whilst on the theme of "swannie" type clothing here is a website offering the Swazi version as in their "Tahr" model.
www.bushwear.co.uk also offer the Stoney Creek "Sika Bushshirt" if you want yet another alternative camo version.
