There’s still time to find the perfect present for the shooter in your life, but don’t leave it too late!
If you’re stuck for ideas, we’ve put together this handy guide to gifts that any shooter would be pleased to receive this Christmas.
Purdey men’s fleece gilet
There are dozens of similar long sleeved fleece jackets – so Le Chameau went back to the drawing board and came up with the Blockley. Made from finely knitted Italian wool bonded to technical polyester fleece for warmth and breathability, the result is a quick-drying full-zip fleece jacket with class-leading heat retention and natural stretch. Available in grey, sage green, navy and brown.
AimCam Pro2i camera glasses
AimCam glasses function as normal protective and tinted shooting glasses, and have a built-in camera to record the view from your aiming eye – ideal if you want to analyse each shot afterwards, or just like sharing your shooting adventures.
The latest model, the Pro2i. has improved image quality and a useful vibration feedback system to confirm when you’re recording. You can control the camera through a phone app, and even livestream the picture to your smartphone.
Pilla shooting glasses
Pilla shooting glasses are popular with UK shooters for good reason. They provide superb optical performance and impact protection, with a huge range of tints and colours for all grounds and types of weather.
You can build the system you want, and there are inserts available for prescription lenses too. A simple kit costs from around £300 – or if you’re buying a gift, there are gift vouchers available from £25 upwards.
Master Lock portable safe
Protect your valuables when out and about with this portable safe by Master Lock. It features a concealed cable that can be locked to fixed objects.
It’s compact, measuring around 9in x 5in x3in, so it won’t take a shotgun fore-end for example, but it will fit a phone, small camera, keys, cash and other valuables. The case is water resistant and shock absorbent, so it gives the contents a good degree of protection when travelling.
Socks are a bit of a Christmas cliché, but these will be warmly received by anyone who spends time outdoors. HJ Hall launched the ProTrek range this year, made from their own ultra-durable, moisture wicking, scientific wool blend to ensure feet stay warm and comfortable.
They offer long-lasting durability and comfort and come in a range of lengths for shoes, boots or wellies.
RRP: From £10.50
The Streamlight Super Siege is a traditional lantern shape, which stands on any flat surface or can be hung from a hook. It has five LEDs with six output modes and a battery indicator built into the on-off button.
It’s powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery and you can even use it as a powerbank to charge up a mobile phone or other USB device. Output is 1,100 lumens..
Blaser All-Season boots
These quality boots from Blaser are lightweight, robust, waterproof and breathable, with a shock-absorbing EVA midsole and a Vibram sole for a sure footing on any terrain.
They have strong riveted hooks and eyes with locking hooks, and are made with high grade Perwanger leather with a rubber bumper.
Le Chameau women’s Field Vest
Made from bespoke British tweed, Le Chameau’s elegant women’s field vest is both flattering and stylish in its design. It features a Napoleon pocket, signature Le Chameau shooting pockets and buttons on the right-hand side to avoid obstruction when shooting.
It works well as a layering piece in combination with a jacket or fleece, as well as a shirt and jumper depending on the weather.
Le Chameau unisex boots
Le Chameau’s Jameson boot has been reworked for optimal comfort and fit. It’s made with premium leather with new Michelin soles, and is waterproof, resistant and comfortable for all day wear all year round. A unique heel pocket in the calf makes it easy to slip on and off.
Men’s Recon boots
These sturdy walking boots from Ariat are built to last. They have Ariat’s proprietary 4LR footbed for support and cushioning, a mesh lining, and an oil and slip-resistant outsole for sure grip. Double speed hooks make them easy to get on and off – and they look the part too.
