Stags in the rain or Tahr in the snow

April 28, 2017 1 Comment

Title

The rain and sleet and snow and wind and ice and all that other good stuff are starting to arrive. Although you’re super tough and there’s nothing that can stop you and your stubbies from getting out and putting the smack down on the 12″ Chamois Buck that lives at the top of the Alps this winter… it might pay to keep a waterproof jacket handy just in case.

We’ve carefully developed a waterproof Jacket lineup that caters for all situations without all the nonsense that you don’t want or need. From the bulletproof and super light XTR Elite Hunter to the incredibly warm insulated Element Jacket, everything you could want is sitting below. Have a read, check them out, try them on, go smash this winter weather.

The Elite Hunter launches a new level of durability and puncture resistance with unmatched protection from rain and bush.

For tackling Matagouri, Spare Grass and packing down extremely small and light for when every ounce counts on the assent. This hard outer also means one quick shake at the hut and it’s dry. It also doubles as the coolest jacket you’ll see at the rugby on Saturday morning.

Element

Element Title

What makes the Element Jacket so much better than all the other puffer jackets out there? It’s built for hunting! That doesn’t mean it’s just been painted green or camo, it means that it has been designed for pushing through scrub, rubbing against rifle stocks, getting muddy and staying dry.

The Element is so special because it’s WATERPROOF! It’s the only waterproof/breathable insulated hunting jacket in Australasia at the moment. If it’s cold, it’s probably wet, so it makes perfect sense that there should be a tough waterproof insulated jacket available for glassing Tahr in the sleet, hiding in the Mai mai, or sitting round the camp fire.

A heavy duty Primaloft® jacket designed for the rigors of hunting. Heavy duty Hydrafuse™ Downshell™ is a waterproof and breathable fabric.

I’ve had some fairly expensive hunting jackets in my time , but none have been totally waterproof/wind proof or air conditioned by way of zips !! . The " Downpour " , looks to be the next one for me .

Leading up to my trip to Fiordland this roar, I had been talking with the guys at Hunters Element HQ regarding the Odyssey Range of outer shell, waterproof gear.  I had never been a huge wearer of pants when hunting, more from what I was brought up with rather than for any practical reason.

I took a transfer from work in June 2015 which brought me from Greymouth to New Plymouth.  The work was an interesting change but I knew the hunting wasn't to be quite the same.

MEN'S PANTS & SHORTS

WAIST: Place the tape measure around your waist, just above where your pants would normally naturally rest. Don't pull the tape tight, but make sure it is snug. Align this measurement with the table below to help select your size. 
INSEAM: This is the measurement from the center of the crotch on our pants, to the base of the inner leg.
Our over-trousers are designed to be worn over the top of your regular pants. The sizing is therefore larger than our regular pants.
