Need to find a fabric for hunting clothes?


I am doing research to find a fabric that I can use for hunting clothes that will work well in Temperature that ranges from 38-75 Degrees.this material needs to be light weight, durable standing up to the environment like brush, thickets, rock abrasions. It needs to be quite so when it hits brush or twigs it does not rustle or make noise.It may need to be capable of becoming scent proof and printed with a camo pattern.

I have looked at light weight wool and so far tests show it does not hold up to the wear and tear.

Can you help?

    Hi John,
    My first question is what materials have you looked into so far? If your a hunter then I would assume you have been to the hunting outlets and looked at the cameo gear they have and unless your looking to actually have something designed and made for you then you really can’t beat what is already on the market. If I were a hunter I would probably go with something that the tag says it is rated for the temperatures that you need and has a fine feeling outer shell. The outdoor gear that is produced today is lab tested for it’s durability and for temperatures as well as water proof and water resistant which are in fact two different identifiers when looking at what fabrics will do. The new micro fibers can have poly-flannels adhered to them making the two different fabrics become one which makes for something nice and warm and durable. However there isn’t a thing on the planet that isn’t going to get damaged except maybe a bullet proof vest but then you loose your maneuverability. Canvas’s are good for sound because they are cotton but when you start waterproofing them and making them so that they can resist temperatures you start to loose the quite aspect. I think your going to have to do some trial and error to get just the right thing. There are just so many pro’s and con’s to fabrics. Oh and John, camo can be printed on just about anything these days, do a search request in our fabric finder, maybe someone will have just what your looking for.

  2. Very good blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any user discussion
    forums that cover the same topics discussed here?
    I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get responses from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks a lot!

      I don’t know of a forum that has discussions on weddings and parties, maybe you could start one? I looked at your blog and there are some good ideas.

      Good luck!
