  • Although the myth ‘you lose the most heat from your head‘ isn’t strictly true, accessorising your shooting clothing with a stylish tweed cap not only looks smart but will keep your head warm too!

  • Top Tip! Layering traps air near to your skin, keeping heat close to you, so wear layers to keep you warm. Try the Icebreaker Men’s Mondo Zip Top  (code MTH112) a thermal garment designed to create a highly breathable system. These are ideal worn alone or as a layering piece. On top, why not try the Barbour Sporting Ultimate 3 in 1 Jacket (code MJC313)? Featuring not 1 but 2 GORE-TEX layers and a detachable Barbour fleece, this jacket really is the ultimate in shooting warmth.

Priced from £245 they are sure to keep your toes warm and dry. Or perhaps you’ll try our Neoprene Socks (code AC117) as a cheaper alternative with your existing wellies, from just £10 a pair.
