The RedKettle hunting Parka M16 was reviewed in Deer, the official magazine for the British Deer Society.
Here are a few quotes that help sum up the RedKettle philosophy and the thinking behind this particular jacket.
"Not often, in this age of rapidly changing technology, do you come across a product that utilises traditional, natural fabrics in place of modern, synthetic ones and design that eschews fancy features in favour of simplicity."
"Made in Scotland to exacting standards of workmanship, the parka is designed for comfort, with raglan style sleeves and masses of room at the elbow."
"The zips themselves are chunky and appear hard wearing, and are fitted with Hypalon rubber finger tabs that are easy to use with wet, cold or gloved fingers."
"...although it might be primarily designed for stalking, this beautifully made and highly versatile jacket would not look out of place in a wide variety of circumstances, including game shooting, fishing and even hillwalking or other outdoor countryside activities."
The British Deer Society is the only organisation which works exclusively for the welfare of wild deer throughout the United Kingdom.

If you select a Light Ventile Jacket with a slimmer fit you will have room for a base layer and a light mid-layer under the jacket. If you select the Ventile Parka, which has a looser fit, you will have room for a base layer and a heavier mid layer as well as space for trapped air.
