A fairly new clothing company by the name of Shooterking® has been designing and making a range of clothing for shooting and outdoor use and is constantly developing its range of products.
With this in mind I paid them a visit at this years C.L.A. Gamefair to have a look at what they had to offer. I was immediately impressed by not only the quality but the thought and design that has gone into their garments. Looking at their clothing range all the items had features that were not a gimmick, but had serious functionality. The fabrics and other material they use is first rate and designed to withstand the abuse that a working garment can be subject to.
In need of new shirts, one of their items I was drawn to was their 'Free Move Shirt', made from a strong 65% Polyester; 35% Cotton, and with the following features:
Having come away with a bag full of clothing, I decided to wear this shirt the same weekend on a training day in the forest. The shirt immediately felt comfortable when first put on and was warm enough in the early morning temperature. However the the temperature changed later in the day to around 25 degrees C and remembering the openings on the back soon unzipped them to let the air through. This was heaven and having other shirts with this kind of feature I can honestly say Shooterking® have got it sussed when it comes the its effectiveness. Although still warm the shirt was comfortable to wear.
When tracking in a forest environment in hot weather you still need protection, and the strength of the fabric came into its own here, fighting off branches, brambles, bugs and flies. I cannot rate this shirt highly enough and whether tracking, stalking, shooting or fishing this is a great choice, and will certainly be buying more of Shooterking® clothing in the future.
