Hunters Element Stealth Jacket
We suggest you get these too
Särmä merino watch cap
Standard woolly cap engineered to its full potential. Superb fit, uncompromising workmanship and the best possible materials don't come cheap but this one should last for a lifetime, provided you don't lose it.
Särmä merino gloves, orange
Good quality made-in-Finland knit gloves from super-duper material. Good as they are for a bit chilly conditions, for serious cold these do well as insulating layer for hard shell gloves. How can they make these so cheap in Finland?
Hunters Element Crucial shirt
A half-zip pullover to fill your mid-layer needs. A nice basic design with suitably long hem & sleeves, zippered chest pocket and moisture wicking fabric. Camouflaged with Desolve Veil camo, a pattern specifically designed to fool animal eye. Mega sale: Hunters Element is in the process of updating the models (probably some little tidbit upgrading), and we're selling the rest of our suppliers stock for cheap. In other words, this is a damn good deal!
These might also interest you
Alpina Trapper RJ Brown
Heavy duty full leather boots, lined with Sympatex. As you might have already guessed, these have all the nice features of proper modern boots meant for rough terrain.
Särmä thick neck tube, Merino wool
A thick merino wool buff. Long enough to cover neck and head and can be folded in half for extra warmth and insulation. These are surprisingly affordable considering the material quality and the fact that these are made right here in Finland!
Hunters Element Apex hoodie
A full-blown hoodie your mid or top layer needs. A nice basic design with suitably long hem & sleeves, zipper closure and moisture wicking fabric. Camouflaged with Desolve Veil camo, a pattern specifically designed to fool animal eye. Mega sale: Hunters Element is in the process of updating the models (probably some little tidbit upgrading), and we're selling the rest of our suppliers stock for cheap. In other words, this is a damn good deal!
Hunters Element Range Pants, Veil Camo
Extremely water resistant shell trousers, designed first and foremost for hunters, everything else coming second. That isn't to say these would not work in any use where you'd need a light water & rainproof barrier, if you don't mind the camo, which is one of the major things in Hunters Element product range.
A warm, lofty, quite packable and waterproof 3-layer laminate jacket for situations when the movement stops or remains minimal. Filled with Primaloft, the same high quality stuff used in Jervenbags. Camouflaged with the Fire camo, which is specifically designed for the moose season. Mega sale: Hunters Element is in the process of updating the models (probably some little tidbit upgrading), and we're selling the rest of our suppliers stock for cheap. In other words, this is a damn good deal!
- A rather generous cut with long hem and sleeves.
- Zippered front. The zipper is YKK made quality product.
- A simple hood with a little visor.
- Adjustments on the hem and sleeve cuffs.
- Basic assortment of pockets; regular hem pockets, one breast pocket for a radio/GPS/cellphone and an inside pocket.
Weighs about 830 g and packs inside its own hood, about the size of a football, still slightly compressable.
Outer shell Hydrafuse™ Drystealth™ fabric, i.e. waterproof breathable stuff. A non-rustling, brushed fabric with a waterproof membrane hidden under. Waterproofness 10000 mm, which is about as much as you could ask for, breathability 6000 gm / 24h, which is pretty good for a waterproof jacket.
Filling 100g/m2 Primaloft Gold, modern synthetic down. Warmth/weight ratio on this is remarkable. We could wager it's similar in feel to summer sleeping bags.
The "Desolve" camouflage line is one of the main things about Hunters Element gear. It's rather meticulously engineered to fool animal vision by using well thought out colours and contrasts, it's not designed to simply blend in the surroundings, but more to break up the general form of the wearer so the animal doesn't recognize you to be human. This orange "Fire" variation is designed for moose hunting.
Sizes in a very simple S, M, L style system. These aren't too oversized, but you can pretty much pick by instict and upsize if uncertain. The sleeves are very long on these, but if you are some 2 metres tall, you might want to size up just in case - the shoulder seams drape a tad lower, making the sleeves longer.
Our 180 cm tall model had no problems whatsoever with the length.
Hunters Element is a company from New Zealand. Those guys are all fanatical hunters and outdoor maniacs so they do know what they're doing when designing this stuff. These are made by observing what really works out there and what doesn't. The gear is made in China but to high standard, as the prices suggest.
Näin kevyesti topatuksi yllättävän lämmin takki, materiaali on kahinatonta koska metsästys. Leikkaus on kohtuullisen, mutta ei liiallisen väljä. Otin normaalin kokoni ja sain sen kokoisen, että alle menee paksumpi välipaitakin kylmiä kelejä ajatellen. Pituus on mukavan reilu, kuten talvitakissa kuuluukin.
Ei tästä oikeastaan moitittavaa löydy, olen tyytyväinen. Supertarjous-takit kannattaa ostaa pois kun niitä vielä saa, tällä hinnalla et saa parempaa teknistä talvitakkia mistään.
Kevyesti eristetty, joten passaa hyvin alkukaudelle kun ollaan vielä plussan puolella. Talvella tarkenee kovillakin pakkasilla todella hyvin, kun alle pistää Woolpowerin 600g villapaidan (supremo!). Talvella etenkin kun on välivaatetta ja pitää hirvi roudata infernaalisen metsätaipaleen läpi tielle, leikkaus on varsin miellyttävä liikkuvaan toimintaan. Ei hankaa vastaan ja myötäilee liikkeitä mukavasti. Eikä kahise!
Miinuksena: jos käytät radiopuhelimessa hevospiiskaa muistuttavaa pitkää antennia niin takissa ei ole mitään lenkkiä, jolla voisi antennia varmistaa kiinni. Korvakuulokkeen läpivienti puhelintaskuun olisi aika kova veto uudistetussa mallissa.
Kannattaa ostaa nyt tarjouksesta vaikkei tarvitsisikaan.
