Check out this Scandinavian hunting clothing.

Wow, I really hope the commas on their website are supposed to be decimal places. It would be hard for me to explain a second mortgage for hunting clothing to my wife.

And by "hard for me to explain", I mean I'd end up starring in an episode of Snapped or Forensic files playing the role of the deceased.

Yep, the commas function as the decimal point - so not as bad as it looks. Still in euros so add another 18% to convert to dollars. pricey stuff for sure.

yes the comma is the decimal, but there's no getting around the Euros. Times 1.5 to get to cdn. Wow.

They use special rubber.

Yeah that special rubber may be a bit more comfortable but still, is it worth the extra money?

Throughout my years of hunting and fishing I have noticed there's a BIG difference between low end, middle and high end gear. There's no way any of the cheaper stuff compares with the top of the line, not even close. BUT there is such a thing as just stupid expensive stuff that is barely better than the mid-range.

This clothing would have to be of such a quality that it outperforms everything else and lasts for decades with very little sign of wear. I do have some hunting and fishing gear that has been put through rigorous use and still looks and performs with excellence after 15 years. That stuff is priceless to me and I wish I had bought multiples. (There's a good thread topic. The stuff that defies obsolescence.)

I learned long ago that cheap stuff sucks! So I buy only quality. But as stated, that has limits. I do have a few pieces of Sitka gear, but I have never paid full price. Generally 50-60%. Not hard to do if you watch for them.

They also have this. I had a pair of shorts in this. They were ok.
