Hunt Lite 3L
Hunt Lite 3L fabric is exclusive to the ShooterKing collection and has been developed for use in active hunting activities, such as deer stalking, moose and wild boar hunting. Hunters have been requesting more functionality and adaptability within the clothing that they wear and ShooterKing believe the new Hunt Lite 3L premium fabric satisfies this request. Hunt Lite 3L is extremely lightweight (a medium sized Jacket weighs only 750g), whilst being waterproof, windproof, breathable, highly stretchable, soft, quiet and the 3 layer (3L) construction makes it highly durable.

LAYER 2 - Shoottex waterproof/breathable membrane, which is bonded to layer 1, prevents any water that got though layer one getting any further.
LAYER 3 - This soft but durable layer is bonded to layer 2 and provides further durability, comfort and insulation.
