It is fair to say that innovation and tweed shooting suits hardly go hand in hand, but at this year’s CLA gamefair Musto are launching a completely new concept in Shooting Jacket.
Tweed has always had 2 major drawbacks as a fabric; it’s very heavy, and in prolonged rain it lets in water, what’s more it soaks up water to gets even heavier as it rains. The result of which is that by the end of the day you use all your energy carting a big old coat around.
Using an innovative new printing process Musto have created a Jacket which is waterproof, breathable, lightweight, and machine washable. There is nothing new in that as such, but this jacket looks like tweed and feels like tweed, but has the performance of a high tech modern fabric. The real achievement is maintaining the smart look of tweed, which until now has only been achievable with the real thing, but in a synthetic fabric.
A jacket and breeks are available separately or as a set, and they include all the other features you would expect to find incorporated into a shooting suit, such as bellow and hand warmer pockets, action back, storm flap and reinforcement at high wear points.
