    What makes eVent better?

    The critical difference between eVent technology and traditional waterproof/breathable fabrics is the millions of microscopic pores built in to eVent's proprietary membrane that work instantly to vent water vapor (sweat) that builds up inside your apparel and footwear when you perform.

    This is called Direct Venting™ technology, and unlike other technologies, it doesn't need to get wet to work. It’s a 'dry system' that allows eVent fabrics to be fully waterproof and fully breathable – keeping you dry and comfortable in the widest range of temperatures and conditions.

    Direct Venting™ technology is engineered to keep you in the ‘dry zone’ – a steady state of temperature and humidity that reduces the wild swings our bodies go through to stay in balance during physical exertion.

    The result is that you’ll spend more time performing at your best and less time fussing with your gear. And when conditions are bad, that can make all the difference.

    Fabric Care

    More ways to care

    Your garment made with eVent fabrics may contain a durable water repellent finish (DWR) on the exterior of the fabric that serves as a first barrier to penetration of the fabric by external water. This DWR finish degrades over time and will occasionally need to be replenished. You will be able to tell when this water repellency has degraded because water will cease to bead up on the fabric. Even though the waterproof eVent membrane is still keeping the water from passing through the fabric, performance will be increased if you maintain the DWR finish with regular treatments. We suggest treating the DWR finish at the same time as your regular garment washings.

    How to wash your eVent garment

    Always follow the garment manufacturer’s care and use instructions. Below are general considerations for maintaining garments with eVent fabrics. Avoid heavy soiling, which could affect membrane performance temporarily. Thorough washing will generally maintain and restore product performance. Regular washing of your eVent garment will enhance product performance. Your garment may be machine washed in warm water (110F / 40C) with liquid detergent, and we recommend a second rinse to remove all traces of detergent from the fabric. We recommend you drip-dry your garment. Remember also to refer to the garment manufacturer’s guidelines. Do not use fabric softeners or bleach. Never dry-clean your garment. We also recommend that you avoid ironing the garment, but if you do, use the steam setting on no higher temperature than “warm”. At some temperatures, the heat from the iron can have a rejuvenating effect on the DWR finish but there is a greater potential for fabric damage if the iron is too hot.

    Chrismas gif to my wife

    review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
    I have the same jacket and my wife like it so much. I got her one for chrismas.
    She couldn't wait to use it. Light weight with lots of room to shoot with but still fits well. the pocket are large fit shell in side and emptys in the other.
    It keeps the wind out and just large enough to put a vest or sweater under it.
    good well built jacket.

    Simply a great jacket

    • quality of construction

    • none that I know of
    Having owned the cold weather version of the jacket for a couple of years and being very happy with it, my expectations for this jacket were quite high. This jacket not only met those expectations, but exceeded them. The jacket runs true-to-size and is plenty roomy for ease of movement. The only tweak that I would make would be to move the Shock Eater recoil pad pocket in toward the collar. Perhaps it is just my anatomy, but the recoil pad is further out on the shoulder than I like. Great product and worth the investment.

    Wild Hare Hydro-Elite Waterproof Shooting Jacket - Black (WH-471L-BK)

    review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
    The jacket arrived yesterday, which was a really fast delivery to New Zealand. The fit is excellent and the sizing guidelines spot on, I ordered an XL as I am 6' 2". Whilst I have not been out shooting with the jacket, I intend to this weekend, I am sure it is going to perform well in the Wellington weather. The construction, weight, and range of movement are all as good as I could have wished for. This is a quality shooting jacket at a very reasonable price.

    Great jacket

    Great jacket, Jacket is everything I wanted, unfortunately I ordered the wrong size and had to ship it back and they won’t have my size until spring. The company is great I had zero problems shipping it back, two people called me to make sure that I was satisfied. Great company to do business with.
