A good shooting sweater is an absolute necessity in high power. Some shooters opt to wear a hooded sweatshirt underneath their shooting coat, but I much prefer Creedmoor's shooting sweater. A sweater is traditionally worn underneath a high power coat to provide extra stability and to also keep the coat clean. One cannot just throw a shooting jacket in the washer. A shooting sweater keeps the inside of the coat from getting sweaty and dirty as it can be washed or replaced after a time much less expensively than a coat can.
The Creedmoor shooting sweater is not so tight that it is uncomfortable but not loose enough to bunch up around the shoulders and cause a breakdown in position. I especially like that it zips. This makes it much faster to take on and off between yard lines and relays on the firing line. I also do not have to remove my hat, glasses, and earmuffs to put my coat on, as I had done previously with a pullover sweater. I cannot say enough about what a convenience this is. Its value was proven during the 2017 CMP Cup Series at Camp Perry. I could have my sweatshirt on and slip my coat on over it when I was called to the firing line. This saved time and kept me cooler as I could zip the sweatshirt while another relay was shooting and not have to worry about removing my ear and eye protection to do so. I highly recommend the Creedmoor Shooting Sweater to any high power shooter, especially those who desire something they can zip up and down, even if they do not own a Creedmoor coat.
