Tom’s top tips Keeping concealed and cool over summer
The summer sun may be a blessing after the wet weather we usually put up with, however it can have its own problems. Most people that do a bit of summer shooting have probably faced the issue of trying to stay cool and comfortable while attempting to remain concealed from their quarry. I have gone through the different jackets with underarm zips and other gadgets to try and keep the air flowing, but normally this still gets a little warm. I discovered that a 3D Leaf Suit from Jack Pyke was the perfect garment for the job and the solution to the problem. The 3D Leaf Suit may look a tad OTT, however the mesh and leaf design allows plenty of air to pass through while giving perfect concealment. The mesh works that well that I will often wear a polo shirt underneath, but its near impossible to see my skin through it – allowing for maximum ventilation. The suits come in different patterns which allows the individual to buy one that fits their needs and typical vegetation. Visit www. jackpyke. co.uk for more details.
