Not only does it look good, indicating that you’re a shooter who takes their sport, travel and appearance seriously, from your point of view it also means a matching set allows you to become fully familiar with it. In other words, since you’ll know each piece intimately, you’re never wondering as to where that vital item might have been packed since it’ll be where you always put it. It also means that you’ll instantly know how to get at it without having to unpack everything.
But whilst many sets of matching /clothing-footwear/tactical-clothing”>luggage cost a small fortune, often precluding them from a shooter’s Christmas gift list, courtesy of the Sportsman Gun Centre, the Guardian Heritage Collection means you can look the part whilst your family won’t fall over at the prices. Covering everything from large and small travel bags, cartridge bags and belt along with gunslips, three of the most practical have been tried, tested and given the full Gun Mart approval as the ideal Christmas presents.
With enough space to easily carry two complete changes of clothing plus extra shirts, socks and toiletries, the Guardian Heritage Small Travel Bag, (RRP £79.99), is the shooter’s ideal travel companion. Made from waterproof sand-coloured canvas and trimmed with strong, thick tan-coloured leather complete with substantial straps, brass buckles and zips, the three green checked-pattern lined expanding compartments swallow luggage like you won’t believe.
Based on the saddlebag principle, two huge sections sit either side of a vast central pocket, a full-length bar across the top meaning no matter how much or how little you have contained within, the bag remains balanced when you pick it up with the thick, padded handle or sling it onto your shoulder with the matching strap. Inside more pockets and compartments provide secure and usable storage allowing the traveller the easy option of using one side for casual items, the other dedicated shooting attire. So whether it’s a few days away or an extended vacation, this supposedly small bag will prove invaluable.
Matching the travel bag is the Guardian Heritage Cartridge Bag, (£54.99) that easily swallows a hundred rounds of your favourite cartridges. Identical in looks to the travel bag and finished in the same waterproof canvas and rich tan leather, a thick strap and strong brass buckle keep the contents safe and sound until you get to the drive, a broad and adjustable canvas and leather shoulder strap making for comfortable transportation. A full-length metal bar hinge then allows you to fold and hold back the flap so allowing quick access to the green baize lined interior meaning you’ll never be out witted by that late, sky rocketing pheasant with no cartridges to hand.
Lastly and ideal for those more sedate walked-up days is the leather and waterproof canvas Guardian Heritage Cartridge Belt, (£26.99). Over 3½-inches wide which means it sits comfortably on the hips, 25 canvas and leather loops keep 25 of your chosen 12g cartridges exactly where you need them, even sustained physical effort failing to dislodge a single one of them until you require them. Fastened by a 1-inch wide, thick leather belt and brass buckle, the length of the belt means even as your festive waistband expands so will this cartridge belt meaning you no excuse whatsoever to be out and about on those late season strolls around the hedgerows.
