ShooterKing produces a very wide range of clothing and accessories to cover most hunting and outdoor pursuits. All their gear has been designed to take on the toughest conditions, whilst remaining lightweight, hard-wearing, stylish, and fully functional. The company has over 30 years of experience and pride themselves on their stringent final inspection process.
The Venatu Jacket and Trousers are designed and manufactured from materials that specifically allow hunters to safely walk through thorny foliage, without the apparel tearing or being pierced.
Both garments are constructed from 100% FORTIS Cordura Nylon, which is a very quiet fabric. It’s also lightweight, breathable and coated with Teflon. They also use a laminated Shoottex membrane which gives a high level of water and wind resistance (10,000mm/W/ R:10,000g/SQM/24hr) with the added benefit that it can draw additional moisture away from the body for improved comfort. There’s also a 100% Polyester lining, meaning when all the build materials are combined, both jacket and trousers are 100% waterproof and windproof.
The jacket has a detachable and adjustable hood, designed with a YKK double zip opening with baffle/storm flap, plus an internal hanging loop. It can be folded down to make a padded collar with multiple cord adjusts for an extremely snug fit.
Storage is vast and catered for by one interior pocket with YKK zip, two on the side, two on the chest and two arm pockets with zips. There are also two front cartridge pockets with two open cargo pouches beneath.
There’s also a large back pocket with two zip access points and a waterproof radio pocket with a loop. Deep pleats on the rear of the jacket allow unrestricted movement, the cuffs have knitted weather shrouds plus Velcro strap adjustment and there’s an adjustable lower hem.
Like the Jacket, the Venatu Trousers offer the best in design and functionality so as to be tough, highly breathable, and waterproof. There are many outstanding features, including pre-shaped knees, excellent storage capability and to prevent slipping, they use internal silicone around the waist and ankles, for maximum grip. The trousers fasten with a YKK zipper with button top and baffle, plus they have an adjustable high back waist for wind protection and wide belt loops. They come with two front pockets, two side cargo pockets, one knife pouch on the right leg, one waterproof zip pocket on the left leg, and two zipped back pockets. Expanding ankle zips and adjustable Velcro straps on the backs of both legs afford a close and tailored fit.
The Venatu Jacket and Trousers are of great quality and also very stylish. All hardware is of the highest standard and most zips include pull assists. For the hunter wanting superior protection, comfort, storage capacity and practicality, the Venatu series should be high up on the list of options.
