Custom Deluxe Harback Coat.
Spandex on inside bend of arm*
The spandex allows your forearm to come closer to your bicep in the standing position without the bulkier material getting in the way. It also prevents hot brass from falling into your sleeve. If you've ever had a hot piece of brass fall into your zippered sleeve opening, you know what we mean. If not, then consider yourself lucky!
By designing the sleeves with a tighter arm fit, the contact point where your elbow meets the inside of the sleeve will remain the same between shots. With non-tapered sleeves, there's an opportunity for your arm to shift inside of the sleeve between shots. Depending on how your elbow rests on the padding, this can cause an inconsistency in your natural point of aim. Being able to relax and keep your natural point of aim will help you to steady your hold and call your shots better.
What does every shooting position have in common? Bent arms! So, it just makes sense to make the sleeves bent from the beginning. This makes it easier for you to get into position with minimum resistance from the sleeve. The more comfortable you are in position, the better your scores!
Extended Body Pad*
We've added a larger rubber body pad on the support side of the coat to provide more rubber on rubber (elbow rubber to body) contact in the standing position to keep that position locked. Remember, the better your standing position, the less muscle strength used, which will reduce fatigue.
Low Pulse Padding
Strategically placed added padding creates "low pulse" effect when shooting with the sling on the arm. With the introduction of scopes, a heavy pulse can be extremely distracting.
One quarter inch padding protects the elbows. Twenty minutes in prone on a hard surface can take its toll on your elbows. The half inch padding along with our exclusive textured rubber make for a perfect combination of comfort and support.
Heavy Duty Buckles
Contoured side-release heavy duty nylon buckles with adjusting straps secures the coat around the body for maximum support. The flat buckle allows for a comfortable prone position while laying on the buckles.
A quick and easy-to-use sling harness is provided to maintain the sling's position on the arm.
Terry Cloth Collar
A soft, removable and washable terry cloth collar protects the shooters neck and coat material.
Heavy Quilted Padded Lining
This is where all the support comes from. The layers are specially quilted to be flexible, but still provide a rigid support when the straps are tightened. We would love to tell you our sewing magic but something has to be secret and kept in a vault.
We developed a specialty textured rubber formula to provide slip resistance while shooting. Strategically placed elbow, body and sling/pulse pads provide maximum support and higher scores.
Large Spandex Under-Arm Gussets
Permits unrestricted arm movement and prevents the coat from the dreaded "ride-up" your back while shooting prone. Nothing like your hat and hearing protection being pushed off your head while trying to clean rapid fire or the 600 yard line!
