Our expert Headkeeper tests the Baleno Derby Shooting Suit
Shooting Suit Graham White – Headkeeper at Holylee Estate, Walkerburn put the Baleno Derby Jacket & Trousers to test over the last shooting season in the rugged, undulating terrain of the Scottish Borders.
Shooting Suit The Baleno Derby Jacket and Trousers combination promises to offer a smart shooting suit without compromising on durability. With a soft, lightweight yet completely noiseless and waterproof fabric, it’s ideal for everyday use outdoors.
What was the Baleno Derby Shooting Suit used for?
I start every day early, as I’m up with my dogs getting them ready for the day ahead. I spend most of my day outdoors in all weathers and every day is different from the day before. This means that when it comes to kit, I need a jacket and trousers that are tough enough to keep me warm, dry and protected in all conditions – whether I’m running a shoot day, out feeding my birds, walking in the outside coverts or on the quad bike at the top of the hill.
This shooting suit feels very lightweight, it’s noiseless and allows me to move around freely without any restrictions. Both jacket and trousers are very comfortable to wear all day and have kept me completely dry without causing me to sweat up when I’m active and working hard. They have lasted really well and have certainly been put to the test in some of the most extreme conditions this winter.
As Headkeeper at Holylee, I am often the first point of contact with visitors so it’s great having a shooting jacket & trousers that look smart as well as being tough enough to match the job in hand. Knowing I’m going to stay dry whatever the conditions is essential in my line of work and these definitely tick that box.
The only slight downside is that the articulated knees on the trousers are a little tight if you have well-built legs and are kneeling or sitting down.
