If you’re planning a day in the field, then gear up to the teeth with this extensive list of products that are ideal for a day outdoors.
Made from 100 per cent pure lambswool woven in a British mill with a Gore-Tex Z-liner, the Schoffel Ptarmigan Tweed Shooting Coat is totally waterproof and windproof, adding warmth without adding extra weight.

Staghorn Thumbstick on Hazel
This smart, traditionally-styled stick overcomes the problem of how to travel with a long thumbstick. Approximately 160cm overall in height, this stick is fitted with a screw joints so it can be easily dismantled. Two or three part options are available.

Caldwell E-Max Low Profile Electronic Hearing Protection
The Caldwell E-Max Low Profile Electronic Hearing Protection is a smart and comfortable over-ear hearing defender. Its intelligent electronics allow the user to continue to hear clearly with normal use through the integrated microphone and speaker system; but when the microphone senses a sound over 85db, the speakers shut off.
Plus, the E-Max Low Profile model is designed to be just that, low profile. They are comfortable to wear and slim enough to minimise contact with the gun. Available in a range of colours including green, mossy oak break-up camo and pink.
SRP: From £46.99

Swazi Tahr XP
For over 15 years the Tahr Anorak has been recognised around the world as the very height of excellence in wet weather jackets. Swazi has since taken all the features that made the Tahr a stand-out winner and added new features to create the Tahr XP.
The Tahr XP lifts the bar and sets a totally new level in weather protection for the serious hunter. Waterproof, windproof and breathable, its storm flap prevents water and wind access through the zip and features cosy hand-warmer chest pockets. The Tahr XP is available in olive and tussock green from XS to 4XL.
Burford Waterproof Boot

Base layer air vents regulate temperature to keep feet cool and comfortable and a Smart Rebound heel pad provides enhanced shock absorption and energy return.
The upper adjustable leather strap closure and leather trimmed top add a bit of style to the traditional look and the easy-off “heel kick” feature and Duratread outsole make these boots a necessity in your game shooting wardrobe.

The jacket also contains many pockets including large cartridge pockets – and those wishing to test it in the harshest conditions will be reassured by its five-year warranty.
