Prime Summer, Keep The Sun Off

December 05, 2012

The days are getting hotter, the grass is getting drier and the ground is getting harder, it’s summer. Now we all love summer with the longer days and those extra few hours of light you can use to get yourself that shot you’ve been trying to get all day. But hunting all day in the long, hot and dry days stalking an animal who is better suited and faster to adapt to changing environment takes a lot out of you. To continue to perform at your optimum and to keep up with your prey during these changing conditions, you will need to shed your winter coat for something more suitable. The summer hunter needs a garment that will allow them to continue to hunt in high temperatures and be able to utilize the extra hours of light available. This garment has to be able to regulate the wearer’s temperature, protect the wearer from the sun’s UV rays and do so without making too much noise.

Hunters Element premium hunting clothing brandHunters Element Prime layer

There are many variations of this garment that would be applicable to provide a hunter with a measure of comfort. Variations that deliver differently on the different requirements, a garment that covers the hunter from head to toe but does not keep them cool in high temperatures. The Hunters Element Prime Summer not only maintains the temperature of the hunter, protects from UV rays with a significant reduction in noise but does so without compromising on the comfort provided by the range. The Prime summer range is semi-fitted to provide a comfortable fitting to the wearer and allow the ranges evaporative abilities to excel. The Fuse Mesh fabric used in the Prime Summer range couple with it’s semi-fitted design provides rapid wicking and evaporative cooling for maximum freedom, comfort and performance in the even the harshest summer conditions. The range also helps to neutralise odors as the fabric has been treated with Aegis Odor Prevention. All in all the Hunters Element Prime Summer range allows the hunter to perform at their best even in the harshest summer conditions and is a necessity for any hunt in a hot environment.
