shooting coats

Postby waterfowlhunter » Sun Apr 21, 2013 2:38 pm

Anyone know of a good shooting coat? I really dislike mine as it has a collar and continuously gets in the way. I have found these 2 but they are pricy. I am looking for this style at a better price. In the summer I shoot with a vest but today shooting it was in the 30's and that is still a bit too cool to shoot 100 rounds of sporting clays in a sweatshirt and vest.

Basic GI joe green field coat at the supply shops works for me for a cheap field jacket and I cut off
the right pocket , since I am right handed so the stock does not hang up on me on dismounts.

You can go to Cabela's or Bass world etc if you want something pretty................

That is why I posted a link to their site. I just do not like their price :mad:

I have a couple of the army field jackets left over from my Navy days. To me they just do not fit properly for a shooting coat and the collar gets in the way when mounting. But they do have the pocket space for lots of ammo and they carry the weight well while shooting. I even shop for the smallest collar I can find on my heavy hunting coats :thumbsup:

I think I am going with the Wild Hare version. just feels a lot better built than others I have looked at. just waiting to find one for the right price.

Thanks,

I have a Bob Allen and a Beretta both bought off EBAY. The Beretta was a closeout. It is terrific - GoreTex and Thinsulate and is so comfortable I wear it for casual wear and not just for shooting. It is warm and dry even on nasty winter days. The Beretta sizes are European - I wear a medium but need a large in the Beretta. The Bob Allen is what most of the other guys in the trap club wear. It is good but not GoreTex/Thinsulate.

Also love the Beretta coat and agree with one size up.
