The Huntflex jackets and trousers range from Shooterking is a great-value option for demanding hunting/shooting clothing that are still lightweight enough to allow you to move easily.
Gameshooter and gamekeeper Paul Childerley wears the Winter Skeet jacket for gameshooting. “Soft leather, game pockets,” he says – “I’ve been using it for a few days this season. Some of the bigger coats are too estruictuive. And it fits in.”
The clothing is made from Primaloft Thermo on the main body (not sleeves), which is washable and soft, as well as stopping rain. Jackets have a thin cow suede leather pad on shoulder (left or right pad design). It has two front large pockets for cartridges. On the trousers, knees are pre-shaped and reinforced, which gives additional stretch, and they have Cordura lining.

Of course, rain tends to come in though the head, cuff and waist openings, and the zips. To solve this, jackets come with detachable hoods and cuffs have adjustable velcro cuffs. Zips are either two-way, double zips or YKK waterproof zips.
Paul likes the breathability of his Winter Skeet Jacket. “I used it on a sim day and we were shooting 250 clays on a stand. It worked a treat,” he says.
