A Very Affordable Scandinavian Quality Product!
Pinewood Mufflon Suit
Pinewood is a new Scandinavian brand to us and as with all new brands I treat them with caution and a desire to find the flaws. When a hunting suit is so cheap (around £230 for the Jacket and Trousers!) it makes me nervous, how can this compare to a Harkila Pro Hunter suit at three times the price. The answer is incredibly well.
The jacket and trousers are made in a light fabric which has been reinforced in the right areas, this makes it about a 3rd of the weight of the Harkila alternative. On the jacket there are two radio pockets on each breast which is great as you can use one for your mobile phone. The zips on these are the water resistant variety, in testing I have had no water leakage into these pockets despite being in downpours. There two hand warmer pockets, two bellow pockets at the bottom, two inner pockets and a rear map (poachers) pocket. Plenty room for all your gear. The trousers are also suitable adorned with plenty of pockets for your gear. The bottoms of the trousers have adjuster straps to keep them nice and tight to your boots.
So I’ve had this set for a few months now, I took it to Russia with me for the month so it’s safe to say I’ve used it in all climates including offshore. In terms of waterproof then, no leaks whatsoever, quite a simple answer. Breathability of the jacket is incredibly good, the trousers weren’t quite as breathable but performed better then the Harkila alternative, I am hot stuff after all! In terms of durability I have been through gorse bushes and the normal kind of terrain we as bush crafters would expect to encounter with out any problems. The suit looks fine, not scratches or rips anywhere, very good for the price. If you’re looking for a cost effective suit to last you the next few years then you simply can’t go wrong.
The Pinewood Mufflon suit is undoubtably Sumo Approved, well done Pinewood!
