Winter Draws On ?

Recommended Posts

I know i have said i will use my shooting jacket in the winter league , BUT when it gets really bitter i may well change my mind . brrrrrrrrr . so having got my old winter league parka out the cupboard . i had to admit that like old Groucher it is well , maybe a bit past it . 15 years of winter league has taken it's toll .right onto the Bay to see what is about  . i liked the look of a parka called Didrikson . swedish  . now they know a thing or two about keeping warm . so looked up the reviews , yep good . so i ordered one . got it today . now that brothers of the slug is what i call a parka . dunno if it will do anything for my shooting . but it will laugh at the weather . recommended brothers and sisters ???

Here you have Holly demonstrating the before and after of how to save on those pesky heating bills.

Step one at the top is to buy a genuine Finnish Parka online for £630 (very nice quality wouldn't you agree)

Step two is to turn off the heating completely whilst wearing said Finnish parka and so save £280 over the Winter!!!

 

Result wouldn't you say Ladies and Gentlemen....:rolleyes:

Well, it is a Genuine Finnish Parka, why Holly's one even has the name 'Simo' inside and a couple of bullet holes courtesy of the 1939-40 Winter War.

Btw probably the Finnish forests were just a tad colder than Stalingrad in '43 but that's another story.

 

Did you want two DC, I'm sure Holly could get you a couple for a £10 discount....:grin:

I think you're going down a blind alley personally.

Have you tried fitting your shooting jacket under this parka?

Nope not enough room  and far to awkward . intershoot do some budget jackets in a large sizes . might end up looking  like mr blobbie  . yep if i can get a sweat shirt and a light fleece under a shooting jacket . i think that will save me from the dreaded lurg .??? HOLLY 

 

PS Why shooters wear those plastic things i cannot see . they do nothing for your shooting . cept  make you sweaty .

Very nice, looks like lots of support there Holls, though I would run it past the EFTA if you're planning of using it at the Worlds next year....:grin:
