    Swedish hunting clothing.

    Greetings from the north of Sweden, where it's currently about -13 and not an animal in sight.

    However, they do make some good gear here, and since the 'factory shop' is ten minutes away, I'm willing and able to bring some stuff back for anybody keen on testing something from over these ways.

    The brand is Fjäll Räven, and has been around for quite some time. Some likely looking items were lightly insulated hunting pants in an extremely durable fabric, for $100NZ. Also saw some reversible blaze orange/camo vests in the same material for around the same price.

    Maybe easier if you look at their website and I'll see if I can pick up what you need at the shop. Also loads of fishing bits and pieces, flies and lures for Africa.

    I have a couple pairs of their pants, one for the last decade prior to them being stolen out of my car by some little so and so late last year. Bloody bulletproof.

    Check it out, and PM me if anything tickles your fancy.

    Cheers,

    Boulderman.

    That looks like good quality gear. I couldn't find the reversible blaze orange vest though. Are you able to post a link?

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Thank you for doing that. It looks good but I will pass.

    Roger that Rushy.

    Saw a couple of deer the other day, by the way, maybe sixty yards from the train I was on, just cruising over a snowy field. Easy pickings for the homeowner a further two hundred or so away. Probably not worth the virtually mandatory jail sentence for poaching here though!!
