Irish Setter Apparel
September 23, 2010
You know this company for its high-quality working footwear, but it also has a new line of outerwear designed just for bird hunters. Our top pick is the new Breckenridge and Litchfield wax cotton jackets. British-traditional without the UK price tag, these full- and waist-length coats have bellowed front pockets, heavy-duty zippered fronts with a snap-over placket, Velcro-adjustable sleeve closures, and moleskin trim at the collar. The generous game pouch in the coats' rear is waterproof, and both coats have a zip-in liner available to keep help you adjust to changing weather conditions.
Muck doesn't stand a chance when you're wearing the Wingshooters 850 boot from Irish setter. This handsome kangaroo leather boot gets a GORE-TEX lining, 400 grams of Thinsulate, an extra moisture-wicking nylon lining, and a memory foam foot bed for near-instant break-in and comfort, but perhaps the best feature on this footwear is its Prairie Mini Bob outsole. This special bottom gives you all sorts of traction in slick, wet, muddy conditions, but you'll leave the mud where you found it. And won't your wife thank you for that when you hand her a limit of birds to clean for dinner and she doesn't have to clean up your tracks into the kitchen?
