Ladies in the field 2017 – Purdey shooting vest

purdey linen shooting vestLadies' linen Safari vest from Purdey – £295

More from James Purdey & Sons...

The ladies' linen Safari vest is part of Purdey’s new Spring/Summer collection of clothing and accessories designed to keep you cool throughout the warmer months. 

Linen is an essential fabric in any Spring/Summer collection with its absorbent, strong and allergy and moth resistance properties, along with its breathability. The linen shooting vest for men and women is an exciting first for the brand and is made from 100 per cent Irish linen herringbone. Strong, durable but lightweight – this item can hold your cartridges for the shoot whilst allowing air to flow through its natural fibres. 

The rest of the collection has a variety of linen shirts and jackets that allow ample movement and ventilation. Each pairing elegantly with our collection of canvas and leather luggage. Introduced in early autumn, this now includes our Audley Range of all-leather pieces (a trunk, hat case, briefcase, elegant ladies’ backpack and portfolio case).
