Choosing the perfect fit for your Deerhunter clothes will depend on the cut, fabric and styling of the garment. Its important to get measurements right for clothing, footwear and hats, especially as you might be wearing the garments all day.
We have general Deerhunter size charts shown below, however some clothing sizes may vary and bigger sizes may be required. For the most accurate size guide, please take a look at the size guide information from within each product description. This will insure that you get the closest possible fit of our clothes enabling you to make the correct choice before purchasing. If you have any questions then please ring us on 01768 864211.
HATS AND CAPS
LADIES BODY MEASUREMENT
|Take your actual body measurements as they are more accurate than measuring over your clothes.
|Measure your chest at the fullest part, placing the tape close up under the arms and across shoulder blades, holding the tape level (don't hold your breath). Be sure to cross over the shoulder blades.
|Measure the natural waistline.
|Measure from the crotch to where your trouser is normally worn, allowing for your hunting boots or shoe.
|Measure around your head from just above the eyebrows where the hat will be at its widest, where it sits on your head.
DEERHUNTER CLOTHING - TECHNICAL INFORMATION
|If you require extra freedom of movement and a good fit, choose one of Deerhunter’s products with stretch. Using materials with two-way stretch makes the hunting apparel stretchable, which enhances your freedom of movement.
|When nature challenges us in tough terrain, it demands even more of our hunting apparel. Here, Deerhunter has developed its Thornproof products, which are made from extra strong fabrics with the sole purpose of being able to withstand scrub and thorns.
|Products impregnated with water repellent treatment are water- and dirt-resistant. Stains are easy to remove. Extremely heat-resistant and has a very smooth surface.
|No matter what weather situation you find yourself in, choosing Deerhunter’s clothing with one of its four membranes, will provide you with a breathable product. This allows you to maintain your comfort while being active and subsequently enjoy your experience more.
|If you choose one of Deerhunter’s products which have a membrane, it will automatically be windproof. Windproofing is the garment’s ability to keep the wind out. If you sit for a long time in a strong breeze, you will quickly appreciate the fact that the garment is windproof. Windproof hunting apparel helps to keep you warm so that you can focus on the hunt.
|When the clothing is stitched, tiny holes are created in the fabric by the seams. To avoid moisture seeping through these holes, it is possible to tape the seams. This protects exposed areas and increases the product's waterproofness.
|Wet and sodden hunting apparel can quickly ruin a good hunting expedition. Deerhunter therefore always recommends waterproof products for hunting in rainy weather. A special combination of materials and processes enable us to develop products which are 100% waterproof.
|Waterproof & Breathability - 5.000/5.000
|Water penetration resistance is measured in “millimetre water column pressure”. The water column pressure is measured by placing a liquid column gauge over the material so that material with water penetration resistance 5.000 mm can keep water out from a five metre (5.000 mm) gauge. Material with a water penetration resistance of 10.000 mm can resist water from a 10 metre (10.000 mm) gauge, etc. MVP value indicates breathability of a membrane. MVP value is an expression of the quantity of water vapour that can escape through one square meter of a membrane within 24 hours. A breathable product rated at 5.000 can therefore “breathe” 5.000 g (5 litres) water vapour per square metre in 24 hours.
|Five-year warranty on manufacturing defects in the Deer-Tex® membrane. The Deer-Tex® membrane warranty only covers manufacturing defects.
|DEER-TEX® Performance Shell
|Deer-Tex® Performance Shell membrane is laminated to the rear side of the outer fabric and taped in all seams, making it 100% waterproof. This membrane is exceptionally light, and is therefore used in Deerhunter’s more technical products.
