Wherever in the world you’ll be hunting, get protected with this selection of hunting clothing that’s suitable in all seasons
Palearctic 365 jacket
As the name suggests, this hunting jacket is designed for use all year round, whether you’ll be hunting on low or high ground. It’s made to keep out wind chill, thanks to a three-layer laminate with integrated 37.5 membrane. A distinctive seam pattern that avoids seams on the shoulders means water’s less likely to make its way in, too.

Deerhunter Rusky Silent
Deerhunter might style this as a winter stalking jacket, but we know conditions can take a turn for the worse at any time of year here in the UK, so we think it looks like a valuable addition to your kit all year round!
As the name suggests, it is built to be extremely quiet, so even during close-range encounters it’ll keep your quarry unaware of your presence. Other features include a thick lining that’s both wind and waterproof, Deer-Tex membrane, and underarm ventilation.
Price: Around £230

Fjallraven Barents Pro Trousers
The Barents Pro are a versatile set of trousers for the field. Designed to fit comfortably with a regular waist and pre-shaped knees for mobility, the trousers’ length can be tailored to your exact height to ensure a perfect fit.
The trousers are made from Fjallraven’s G-1000 fabric, a lightweight yet robust blend of polyester and cotton. The fabric’s tight weave ensures it offers excellent protection from wind, insects and undergrowth, and it can be adapted to suit the conditions using Greenland Wax. Adding more wax increases the fabric’s wind and water-resistance, ideal for colder conditions, while in the summer, the wax can be washed out.
Harkila Lagan Jacket
The Lagan suit is a stretchable, lightweight, men’s stalking jacket and trousers which is designed with an active fit for strenuous activity. Pictured here, the jacket is treated with DWR and has a hood for added protection against bad weather.
Designed with ARC Stretch material retains the jacket’s elasticity and provides comfort and freedom of movement. This ergonomically cut men’s stalking jacket is also phenomenally quiet. Available in olive or Lynx Axis camo – and check out the matching trousers too.
Price: £169.99 (trousers £179.99)

Swazi Tahr Ultralite
Based on the popular Tahr jacket, the new Ultralite really lives up to its name with a weight of just 484 grams. It achieves that thanks to Swazi’s Aegis fabric, which is not only light but also tear-resistant.
The ultra-thin fabric can be rolled into its own hood for easy transport, too. You also get a long jacket tail with elasticated shock cord, and that famous Swazi hood.
This lightweight and easy-to-carry jacket can be worn all year round and not just in the winter. It is 100 per cent waterproof and windproof, breathable and quiet, with open cuffs to aid cooling and a two-way front zip.
Two zipped cargo pockets with back access, hand warmers and a handy chest pocket with waterproof zips give plenty of storage capability. The built-in hood is wired and unobtrusive when stowed into the collar.
