Bareback Jacket – New for 2012

March 27, 2012



Another new addition to the 2012 Range is the Bareback Jacket. The Bareback is our base model, bare essentials raincoat. The Bareback coat has been designed as a very affordable, no nonsense jacket that will keep you very warm and very dry.

Three layer Waterproof and Windproof, Breathable material ensures you keep dry as a bone inside while the rain pours down around you. The Jacket is fully seam sealed using heat treated adhesive to ensure it remains water tight even after extensive use.

The outer layer of the Bareback is an Moss Green, brushed tricot fabric that is extremely quiet. This makes the jacket perfect for sneaking through the bush, dry or wet. The brushed tricot on this jacket is a heavy duty layer which makes the Bareback a really tough bit of clothing that is perfectly suited to handle the abuse that comes with rubbing up against trees and foliage, in the effort to crawl and scramble through thick New Zealand and Australian bush.

Two large pockets feature on the coat which once again consists of fully waterproof material. We’ve designed them with a bit of thought put in to it and have got them so they’re ideal for fitting the hunting essentials in, specifically bino’s, cameras and  ammo. A clever waist cord situated just above these pockets is the key to keeping warm in this jacket. With this pulled up tight and the zip done all the way up, the heat you’re core produces is trapped inside the jacket making you a lot more comfortable.

The single slide YKK zip is fully concealed by a generous sized flap, again made from the same waterproof material. This ensures that there is no chance of water creeping in the sides of the zip. Velcro strap cuffs are used to create a tight seal around the wrist to stop water trickling down your arm and simultaneously keep the warm pocket of air inside. We have decided to stay away from neoprene cuffs, unlike a lot of other manufacturers as we’ve found that these tend to hold water for a lot longer than the other materials. This means they take longer to dry out than the rest of the jacket and are the first to start going rotten and smell after a bit of abuse.

The shoulders of the Bareback are seamless, as this is where a lot of the abuse and stretching happens in hunting jackets. On top of them sits a fixed hood. The fixed hood is made with TunnelTECH peak and peripheral vision adjustments, with one touch pullers. This hood allows you to adjust it to suit your own head with a good sized peak that keeps the rain off your face and generous recesses on the sides to allow you to keep a wide range of peripheral vision.

The new Bareback Jacket is in stores now and with all the important features of a quality rain coat plus a few more, we think you’ll find this product quite impressive. But what’s even more impressive is the price! The RRP is just NZ$229.99!!!!

Bareback is a bare essentials rain coat, simple and effective. It will keep the rain out and warmth in.
