This week we wanted to focus the spotlight on one of our most popular brands, Deerhunter.
The Deerhunter Clothing Range is a collection of high-quality, functional garments designed specifically for the farmer, hunter, or even dog walker. Each piece has been carefully crafted to provide protection from the elements while also being comfortable enough to wear during extended periods of time outdoors.
But where do you even begin?
Well, here's our guide to a few of our favourites for both men and women.
Deerhunter Outdoor Clothing: Menswear
The Deerhunter Gamekeeper Pro shooting Jacket, winner of the Great British Shooting Awards 2020, certainly lives up to its name.
Deerhunter has designed a garment that's been specially made to withstand thorns, scrubs, and bushes. The ideal companion for any hunting or beating activities. The fabric has a moleskin feel with a high performance waterproof outer shell that will not only look good but will also keep you dry and comfortable all day.
You can always spot a Deerhunter product among a crowd as they all have a premium finish, which is why they are so versatile. Whether you're looking for something you can switch up for a social drink in your local pub or a hunting weekend with your friends, you have the choice of three colours: peat, realtree timber camo, and turf.
Overall, the Gamekeeper is a great fully waterproof jacket which can be layered up in the winter. It has large pockets big enough for cartridges or binoculars and two side pockets to keep your hands toasty when out on the field.
A product our directors would recommend along with the smock version!
If you're looking for a classic Deerhunter product to start your hunting collection, then the Muflon is where to start.
Designed specifically for harsh weather conditions, the Muflon Jacket features thin 3M insulation for outstanding thermal protection that's lightweight and non-bulky. It is fully waterproof, windproof, and breathable to ensure full protection. This particular range is designed for someone who is hunting for long periods or needs many technical features in one jacket.
A few of those features include:
- 2 chest pockets with zips next to the placket, as well as integrated cartridge pockets.
- Treated with Teflon water repellent treatment to repel water and stains, which maintains the garment appearance and sheds water.
- Reinforced wear points with flexible suede detail for protection. polishing
- Cloth in the left chest pocket.
Compared to the other products, it's much thicker and wouldn't be suitable if you're wanting something lightweight for spring or summer. However, you could try The Muflon Light Jacket. The light style comes with similar features, but less insulation.
Overall, a popular range with our customers all around the world. A piece that will keep a firm place in your wardrobe for many years.
We welcome the new Excape range to the website with open arms!
A little different from the rest of the collections, the Excape range is super lightweight and has an ultra-soft feel to the material. The Excape Soft Shell in particular has a stretch and silent fabric, perfect if you are looking for a silent partner whilst hunting. Though it is not as warm as the other products, it can be layered perfectly with the Deerhunter Excape Insulated Cardigan for extra warmth.
The Excape softshell has plenty of storage options for your phone, keys, map, and even your dog's treats!
It is worth noting the range is water resistant, so it would be more suited for light showers or activities in the spring or summer. Overall, if you're looking for something not as bulky or padded, then the Excape range might just be for you!
A stylish but simple piece. The Deerhunter Waterproof Rain Poncho is a firm favourite with our customers, and here's why.
The poncho is 100% waterproof and windproof and features the Deer-Tex Performance Shell membrane, which will keep you completely protected from the heaviest of downpours. It's super easy to pack up and light enough to carry around in your bag.
Though "One Size" can be worrying to some, it’s sealed at the sides to form a wide body area and measures 39.5” in length, making it easy to wear over other clothing. It also has a large kangaroo pouch in the chest that can hold small items while you're out exploring.
Our customers have even gone to say, "The poncho design allows for longer strides and kneeling. The material keeps the rain out (constant drizzle or heavy showers) and is light enough to keep me warm in the cooler winds."
Overall, a versatile piece that is perfect for many country activities.
The equivalent to the Gamekeeper PRO Jacket for men, the Lady Gabby is a perfect all-rounder.
The Gamekeeper PRO uses the Deer-Tex® Performance Shell membrane, which is fully waterproof, breathable, and windproof, to keep you dry and comfortable all day while still looking stylish.
The Lady Gabby is available in three colours and has a sleek feminine cut. Just like the Gamekeeper jacket, it's versatile enough to wear while shooting or when socialising with friends. It looks great with our Boston Felt Hat and Ariat Coniston Boots, or layered with a Lady Pam fleece to keep you warm while shooting.
The jacket also features a neoprene storm cuff to stop any water from seeping in. Overall, a midweight jacket that could be worn through spring and summer and layered throughout winter.
It's also worth mentioning that we have just added the NEW Lady Gabby Smock to our collection. A similar piece with an attractive fur hood and a large front pocket, perfect for shooting or hunting.
The Lady Raven is the all-weather jacket.
It has a soft touch but is made with highly durable polyester tricot fabric, which is also completely soundless. The Raven has an extremely high waterproof rating of 10,000mm and a breathability rating of 10,000 g/m2, making it perfect for anyone looking for a jacket to go stalking or shooting in, which may be outside for a long period of time.
The hood is detachable and it also has an adjustable waist pull, so you may create a more feminine fit if you wish. The overall design of this jacket is premium, slick and stylish, even down to the small details such as the branded buttons and YKK zip.
It's as lightweight as the Lady Gabby, but if you're looking for something slightly more insulted, we would suggest looking at the Deerhunter Lady Raven Winter Jacket, which has a triple layer of Deer-Tex Temp 120g/m2 + 80g/m2 for exceptional thermal protection without bulk or weight.
Overall, Deerhunter is one of our favourite brands. Their designs are finished to an excellent standard that you can trust.
The collection is not only for hunters but works exceptionally well for a wide range of outdoor activities, including dog training and walking, bird watching, etc.
Deerhunter is so confident their products will last that most of their collections come with a warranty!
