When choosing hunting apparel, and you need maximum flexibility, freedom of movement and a good fit, you should choose Deerhunter’s products with four-way stretch. Hunting apparel with four-way stretch is elastic both lengthways and widthways, enabling you to move around freely without feeling constricted by your clothing.
If you want to hunt in very cold temperatures, you will benefit greatly from choosing hunting apparel with insulation. Padding or insulation is designed to keep you warm. It is important that you are able to maintain a stable body temperature throughout the day so that you don’t freeze.
Products impregnated with water repellent treatment are water- and dirt-repellent. Stains are easy to remove and the product gets a smooth surface.
No matter what weather situation you find yourself in, choosing Deerhunter’s clothing with one of its four membranes, will provide you with a breathable product. This allows you to maintain your comfort while being active and subsequently enjoy your experience more.
If you choose one of Deerhunter’s products which have a membrane, it will automatically be windproof. Windproofing is the garment’s ability to keep the wind out. If you sit for a long time in a strong breeze, you will quickly appreciate the fact that the garment is windproof. Windproof hunting apparel helps to keep you warm so that you can focus on the hunt.
When the clothing is stitched, tiny holes are created in the fabric by the seams. To avoid moisture seeping through these holes, it is possible to tape the seams. This protects exposed areas and increases the product's waterproofness.
Wet and sodden hunting apparel can quickly ruin a good hunting expedition. Deerhunter therefore always recommends waterproof products for hunting in rainy weather. A special combination of materials and processes enable us to develop products which are 100% waterproof.
Waterproof & Breathability - 10.000/10.000
Water penetration resistance is measured in “millimetre water column pressure”. The water column pressure is measured by placing a liquid column gauge over the material so that material with water penetration resistance 5.000 mm can keep water out from a five metre (5.000 mm) gauge. Material with a water penetration resistance of 10.000 mm can resist water from a 10 metre (10.000 mm) gauge, etc. MVP value indicates breathability of a membrane. MVP value is an expression of the quantity of water vapour that can escape through one square meter of a membrane within 24 hours. A breathable product rated at 5.000 can therefore “breathe” 5.000 g (5 litres) water vapour per square metre in 24 hours.
Deer-Tex® membrane lies loosely between the outer fabric and the other layers. All seams are taped, making the product 100% waterproof. The loose membrane is particularly suited to products where there is a major emphasis on being noiseless, for example during stalking and bow hunting.
Five-year warranty on manufacturing defects in the Deer-Tex® membrane. The Deer-Tex® membrane warranty only covers manufacturing defects.
