Best shooting jackets 2020

In March 2020, more than 500 of you filled out our shooting and hunting clothing survey, telling us which jackets and trousers you wear and why you like them. The big prizes are your favourite jackets and trousers. And here are the winners.

Top manufacturer for jackets is Deerhunter but its Montana, Muflon and Ram jackets are pushed into second place by Härkila’s Pro Hunter range.

Barbie and Ken entirely clothed in most popular outdoor jacket and trousers, Härkila Pro Hunter

 

When it comes to style, your third favourite trousers are the Deerhunter Ram, second place goes to the Seeland Woodcock range. The trouser winner is, again, the Härkila Pro Hunter. And Härkila is your top choice of trouser overall.

Most popular hunting trousers among our viewers are Härkila, with Seeland in second place and Deerhunter in third

 

What about breeks? Both the Härkila Pro Hunter and Seeland Woodcock come in breeks styles. Nearly 10% of you put down tweedy breeks and plus-fours and twos as your preferred outdoor attire.
