Over 10 years I have bought 5 coats from Fortis. All have been of high and considered quality. Last week I received my smock coat and wore it immediately for a wet Lakes weekend. Hard wearing, well cut, and good design. Very happy, again.
BEST WATERPROOF CLOTHING ON THE MARKET!! Bought a Field Jacket to wear horse riding and the hood of the coat fits over my helmet, stopping the rain drip down the back of my neck! Ive now had it for 2 years and haven't had a single problem with it! With the company being a fully British brand, they made me aware that they offer a repairs service ensuring my coat to last for years! Honestly the best company I have come across!!
My Falkland Coat is incredible it has kept me warm and dry this winter and now it is getting warmer I can just wear the outer coat. The best thing is that it is made to order so it was made just for me.
The Only Downside of fortis is that there is quite a long lead time if you order something at a show. However I have bought quite a few items off the peg so to speak and the quality is stupendous. I have bought winter water proofs and they are amazing. I have also bought a lightweight waterproof coat and again it is wonderful. I have just taken delivery of a long drover type coat and it is superb quality. It may have taken some get the coat but boy is it worth the wait. 👍👍👍👍👍👍
Took a few weeks deliver my trousers but well worth the wait. The overtrousers I bought have stood up to everything I have thrown at them and have exceeded my expectations at every turn. I will be buying more from Fortis in the future, just have to order in good time.
Working outdoors in all weathers I have tried many "top brands" of waterproof jackets and coats, however only Fortis have delivered what they say. I cannot fault the three I have. If you are looking for a great product well made look no further. Combine this with excellent help/advice and customer service.My partner my son and I ordered one each today at Highclere show :-)
I already own the Forester Coat and Forester Over Trousers which I purchased from the stand at the South of England Show over the past 2 seasons. They have seen me through mud, rain and snow, keeping me warm and dry on the bank fishing, out exploring with my camera and just generally being outdoors or in the countryside.Today I had the pleasure of visiting Fortis HQ with my wife and son. Oliver, one of the Directors, greeted us and showed us around the factory and introduced us to some of the office and manufacturing team.This gear is manufactured on site and made to order near Lyme Regis, the quality of manufacture and materials here is WORLD CLASS from a small family UK business.Today I have just ordered a Grizzly Jacket for the winter with a slight adjustment to fit my big neck!Expect to see this company grow and grow! If you live, work and play in the countryside check them out, same goes for security services, Police and Military.Best wish Tim, Zoë and Oliver
Over the years I've had numerous trousers and jackets from CC and Fortis - all of which are still in use. It took almost 10 years of steady use before the trousers needed reproofing- you just can't fault the quality.
I bought a falkland coat at the west of England game fair last year. Probably the best coat I've got. I've worn it shooting a few times smashing through the rough stuff, there's no tears or pulls, it's come through unscathed. Well worth the money.
I ordered my Falkland Coat at the Midland Game Fair, advised it would be 6 weeks to arrive as they were so busy. Update at 4 weeks, order on track and then arrived on the dot as promised. Fantastic bit of kit very happy and very honest company, happy to recommend .
For a number of years I put off buying a Falkland jacket due to the cost. Then two stalking friends who had owned Fortis jackets for a long time persuaded me to part with the cash. Best money I have ever spent, I've now had the jacket for 3 years and cannot fault it, or find a way to improve the design. A first class product in every way. To the few people who complain about waiting for goods all I can say is its well worth the wait. What's a couple of weeks when compared to years of faultless service
Bought XL gaiters recently. Superb purchase, not cheap, but if what they have already been through is any indication, they'll last years and years! Very pleased withe product and the service. Maddie (?) couldn't hve been more helpful on the phone.
Fortis are a company with fantastic products that can be used with confidence it the very worst conditions. They are a group of people who care about what they produce and the people they supply. Their service is exceptional something that most other companys have forgoten. In the days of mass production it is unusual to find an company that is so good and produces kit with the quality they do.
I have an Arctis jacket at work, and I was so impressed I bought an SAS Smock Parka and a pair of Falkland trousers. Really impressed with them in the woodland, but so far I'd never been caught in the rain. In Scotland last week was out on the hill in sleet and rain, which included a spell of lying on top of melting snow - dry throughout. Not even a feeling of cold or damp. Seriously impressed.
Very pleased with my grizzly smock, and impressed with your service - as you didn't have the colour I wanted, thanks for the free upgrade to Cordura in the desired colour. Picking up on Exmoor will never be so cold or wet again.
My girlfriend and i have a range of there equipment 2 jackets, 2x overtrousers, 2 x breches, gaiters, leggings, waistcoat. All are fantastic bought at the game fair 3 years ago and last summer. Wearing 3 days a week beating, and daily dog walking. And can't recommend them highly enough, as clothing and company.
I've owned a Grizzly smock for the past 2 years and it's took an utter hammering. It's still going strong. Worth every penny. Recently purchased the breeks -so far so good. Lovely people to deal with too ☺
Best jacket I have owned, it has never let me down in nearly 10yrs of hunting, shooting and stalking in adverse conditions. Still going strong, it has worn well and if I am honest I haven't been overly kind to it with regard care. Thanks Fortis
Bought one of the lightest weight coats earlier in year to wear under tweed gilet on shoot days if it was wet it hasnt let me down in some of the worst conditions and has remained dry and warm i have recommended it to everyone and anyone who has asked they are brilliant best coats on the market
After nearly 40 yrs stalking in Scotland, my Fortis smock is by far the best waterproof shell i have owned. It's tough, rugged and puts up with untold abuse, after 3yrs it's still waterproof. Fortis is my one stop shop now!
Can't wait to get out and try my new Fortis stalking smock and matching waterproof trousers, along with my waterproof rainshield jacket. Great and friendly service from the family team at Fortis. Thank you.
As I get older and heavier(!) I am constantly on the look out for lightweight, breathable and waterproof clothing which will allow me to enjoy the outdoors in comfort and with the reassurance that in inclement weather I can pursue my shooting, dog training and hill walking without being damp either from the outside or inside. At the Irish Game Fair at Shanes Castle I purchased a suit from Fortis and was looking forward to trying it out in the most inclement weather I could find. We found it on Sunday when we were sponsoring a terrier, lurcher and whippet charity show. The forecast was for brisk winds and heavy rain all day and the forecaster had it just right - well not just heavy rain but torrential rain. On normally what I would call a '2 coat day' I faced nearly 5 hours of rain and the envy of friends who sought refuge in their cars. The result - totally comfort and bone dry - the only negative was that it was still raining heavily when we were leaving and I didn't take off the jacket before getting into the car. The coat was so waterproof that the raindrops ran off my coat in to the seat - a shake would have sorted this. I can now look forward with confidence to enjoying wearing it in any weather in the shooting season - a truly quality product.
Obviously i would rate our company 5 star because i get to see the work, effort and team work done in the factory to design, cut and make the garments and get the feedback from the customers. As we grow our learning does as well and i am very lucky to be apart of this awesome British company. Thank you to everyone that continues to support us, it means far more than you may think.
I use the Falkland trousers for most of my work, find they keep me dry for all but the very worst that the highlands can throw at you, also nice cut for freedom of movement and breath-ability is excellent.
Owned several pairs of Falkland trousers, didn't last long before they let water in, good design and cut though. Also two smocks, fantastic - dancam and swedcam, brilliant. One let water in and was repaired on warranty. Very good!
I work daylight hours through the year as a falconer, and I also shoot as part of my job in pest control ( against gulls, yes I am licensed ). I have Falklands jacket, trousers, and a Cambridge coat.I have lived in my Falklands coat for five years now, it sees so much work that I generally wash it every 2 weeks. Yet, amazingly it is still thoroughly water proof, and the same goes for the trousers. Quality costs, but with such a long a complete warranty, Country Covers make a product well worth the money. NOTHING I have tried before stands the test of time so well. If you are just going to use their products recreationally, they will last you a lifetime.
I have there trousers with extra protection on the seat and knees, I also have smock.I like others have spent £100's of pounds trying to keep dry, now into year four with my set up now, as a keeper I wear them every day in the winter for work and beating, I have never got wet yet and long may it continue. Well done country covers.
I have the Falkland trousers and they are well made. I use mine for stalking and beating three to four times a week. I also like them as withe their adjustable waist band they can be worn over my trousers when its cold. Makes for a quick getaway as I have my clean trousers on ready to drive home.
