Providing the shooter with three distinct brands, Treesco’s Percussion range of clothing is for the hunter who likes to keep an eye on their expenditure. However, the financial expedience of the Rambouillet hunting suit doesn’t mean any aspect has been compromised. The style, the cut, the latest high-performance materials and the fit are everything the most fastidious shooter will be on the lookout for, and the complete Rambouillet outfit or each individual garment is flawlessly appropriate for purpose and occasion.
Part of the Percussion Cold & Wet collection, the Rambouillet outfit takes its title from the châteaux of the same name, the stately French home’s distinct looks reflected in each garment.
As technically advanced as any other hunting jacket currently on the market, this insulated jacket sets itself apart in a variety of ways, one in particular an example of French common sense. Coming down to halfway down the wearer’s backside and not to the tops of the legs, the reduction by only two or three inches actually improves overall movement and stops the bottom hem snagging or getting in the way when climbing in and out of a 4x4 or when behind the wheel.
Each sleeve has long zipped vents should the day get slightly warmer than expected whilst a full length heavy duty zip and storm flap and adjustable cuffs keep wind and rain at bay whilst to the rear, a large PVC lined folding gamebag allows the shooter to carry three or four pheasants with no difficulty whatsoever. And to ensure no matter how much you load up the jacket, elasticated inserts around the waist maintain the jacket’s external tailored appearance.
Internally, a soft silk-like viscous lining adds an additional touch of luxury whilst four full zip pockets provide plenty of security for all your important personal items. Price: £109.99
More or less mandatory for any shooting man or woman, a 100% cotton check shirt is the sort of thing you’ll buy in multiples and at the asking price of these Percussion shirts, half a dozen at a time wouldn’t be out of it. The two patterns on review were both attractive whilst the rest of the range is equally good-looking. All of them have contrasting collar and cuff inlays, button down collars whilst the sensible sizing means there’s plenty of room in them along with a long tail. Warm and comfortable, they’ll also stand two or three days wearing with recourse to changing them should you be on an intense few days shooting with limited chances of refreshing your laundry. There’s not a lot to say about Percussion’s cotton shirts apart from the fact they’re as good as any I’ve ever worn and cost considerably less.
