The Harkila Visent hunting suit is billed as Harkila's new flagship clothing range for 2011/2012. Therefore one would expect Europe's top manufacturer of outdoor clothing to have created something truly special.
It doesn't take long to realise that the Harkila Visent suit is something special. The styling alone gives it's position away in the hierarchy of Harkila garments. The use of a 100% polyester brushed main outer fabric combined with the Paclite 2 layer contrasting trim give the Visent a unique look and luxurious feel compared to other Harkila clothing products.
However, apart from it's looks, the outer fabric itself is incredibly tough, hard wearing, light weight and surprisingly breathable. The addition of a Gore Tex Performance membrane ensures that you are completely protected from heavy rain and cold wind.
The lining is made from 100% polyester brushed Tricot coupled with a Thinsulate Platinum 120g insulation.
The designers of the Harkila Visent suit succeeded in combining a high level of insulation with a Gore Tex membrane without having to sacrifice a healthy level of breathability.
Much thought has gone into the designing of the jacket and this can be seen in some of the details, such as the use of magnetic buttons on the front pockets which means they can be opened an closed without the need for removing your gloves for example. Another clever feature is the rear game pocket which can be folded out and used as a seat in wet conditions. There are many other details worth mentioning such as the radio pocket, orange signal band on the shoulder and pocket for heating pad.
The same amount of thought has also gone into the development of the Harkila Visent tro
The bib and brace style not only provides excellent support for the trousers but also gives extra protection in cold conditions due to the an additional heat pouch which is designed to keep your lower back warm in more extreme weather conditions.
All the zippers are waterproof and the extra wedge in the trouser leg means there is plenty of room for big winter boots.
The trousers are also reinforced internally with a liner and roomy cargo pockets.
