Is beige a bad colour choice in a shooting jacket? and is Cotton Cordura too loud? (it rustles).
I found this jacket online and it seems pretty good, it was in a local tackle shop for £99 (reduced from £200) but the same jacket is here for £29.99 - advice!?! i would like to invest in a nice shooting jacket, but i havent a clue- this one stood out as i have already tried it on. Any others, or any other types/syles/colours/camo that people recommend?

thankyou for putting up with my rambling.

Eddit: price correction.

Anything that claims to be 100% waterproof, windproof
and breathable probably isn't.

Can't beat tweed for a shooting jacket.

If they're in Exeter could Brownbear have a look at it for you?

I would ADORE that, only im trying to save myself for a half decent gun, i dare say £250 is a little above my budget.
£100 is the absolute maximum at the moment atleast untill i start earning.

I was in the shop today - the jackets are not bad but the colour of a baby's milky excrements. Deerhunter do some very nice cammo realtree-type jackets, and I'd advise you to go for one of those.

thats where this seemed a reasonable alternative, still hardwearing, a little bit waterproof and it felt well built...
