The world-renowned Scottish Shetland Wool used since the 1800s for the British Army has now been combined with a Swedish Fjallraven twist. Fjallraven, who pioneered the exclusive G-1000 fabric (one of the most durable cloths for the outdoors in the world), has teamed up with the famous Scottish cloth mill, Abraham Moon, to produce the fantastic Forest No. 3 Hunting Jacket and Forest No. 26 Hunting Trousers.
Wind and rain resistant, the warmth of Shetland wool is now reinforced with the toughness of G-1000 Heavy Duty for these pieces, new for Autumn Winter 2013. Available to buy online today at The Sporting Lodge.
The garments can be waxed with Fjallraven Greenland Wax for enhanced durability. The No. 3 Forest Jacket has practical details and pockets for convenient storage of items you want close at hand, such as a clip-on radio attachment on the left shoulder and large top-loaded bellow pockets with side pockets built in behind them. There are also two pockets with ammunition holders, two chest pockets and a large top-loaded back pocket. Inside, there are a further three pockets. Buttoned sleeve cuffs. Forest Jacket No. 3 is a durable, stylish and hard-wearing garment that will keep you warm and provides excellent insulation, even when damp.
The No. 6 Forest Trousers are reinforced at the knees, back and leg endings with G-1000 Heavy Duty, which can be waxed for enhanced durability. They have several practical pockets, including two large leg pockets for maps, a GPS, gloves and other goodies you need to keep close. The knees are pre-shaped and have openings for Fjallraven Knee Pads, while the section over the inner thighs is seamless to minimise the risk of chafing. The waist is cut high at the back for extra comfort when squatting down, and has belt loops and reinforced brace zones and buttons for braces. The rear seam is triple stitched to withstand wear. Zippers from the side of the knee down simplify putting on/taking off and leg endings can be adjusted with press buttons. Silent, pliant and comfortable hunting trousers that are suitable for both sitting for longer periods and for moving around.
Scotland meets Sweden. The perfect match for quality, durability and functionality.
