The cape

Country Life Every Week - - All The Gear -

At first glance, a cape may ap­pear a slightly strange sar­to­rial choice for a de­ter­mined gun, but when the heav­ens open, you won’t just look like a su­per­hero, you’ll feel like one, too.

‘Buy your­self a Purdey cape,’ ad­vises James Horne, chair­man of the fa­mous English gun­maker. ‘It will keep you dry, which can’t be un­der­es­ti­mated. With out­er­wear, I’ve learnt the more you spend, gen­er­ally the bet­ter it is.’ Purdey shooting cape, £375 (www.purdey.com; 020–7499 1801)
