It is funny what gets rolled into a gun deal on occasions. Recently, I took on a variety of guns and rifles, books and other things. The final item was a box of Schoffel shooting coats, their first model Ptarmigan which led to their success in the shooting field which just happened to be my favourite coat for shooting, I was as pleased to get these as the guns! The Ptarmigan has sold in its 1000’s, it was designed specifically for shooting in UK, is light, warm and waterproof with plenty of movement. In the many years since this coat was introduced no other company has made a better replacement and it is almost a ‘uniform’ amongst game shooters here!
The first model is the one I have always liked and continue to wear for all my shooting in UK, the colour is perfect, the trim is right and fabric handle is very nice. Like all clothing products it seems, if it gets popular cost then comes out of the make so profit goes up. They say the new models are more technical, but I have not had issue with mine.
So for the lucky few, in my opinion, we have online just 29 of these coats in random sizes, for both ladies and gents. A really great coat, new with original tags at a much reduced price than the current models! Have a look, click on the images below!
