The Field rounds up its choice of kit to start the year off feeling cosy with a field coat or filing in point-to-point dates in a 2023 diary
After Christmas you may be overloaded with goodies but still missing that one thing that may have slipped through the gap or got lost on the list. We show you exactly where you can put your hands on kit to covet.
KIT TO COVET
Waterproof, windproof and breathable, made from organic cotton with a CTX membrane (an alternative to Gore-Tex). Adjustable leg openings, water-repellent zips and an attachment for braces. Let the January weather roll.
Cashmere tweed, woven in Scotland with a durable Sympatex liner for protection against wind and rain; reinforced bellows cartridge pockets, with retainer straps for easy access; and two inside pockets. Savvy in the country, smart in town.
Made from dirt- and water-repellent, hardwearing canvas, with a drawcord at the top for a snug fit, elastic at the ankle, an adjustable rubber strap at the bottom hem and a hidden hook to attach to your laces and stop them sliding up. Stand by for smugly dry feet in the field.
The Cervo Rosso is handcrafted from a single piece of Italian leather, with an additional protective rubber toe cap, 100% waterproof and breathable Sympatex lining and excellent ankle support for the toughest conditions faced by Guns and gamekeepers.
