About Shooting Breeks
For centuries, autumn has ushered in the game hunting season. This is when stylish and practical shooting breeks become the attire for the hunter that wants a classic, traditional look. The knee length breeches, also known as plus twos or plus fours, gather at the knee or calf so that they tuck easily into hunting boots to provide protection and warmth. While many manufacturers make these trousers from high quality tweed, new fabrics are becoming popular because of their lightweight and waterproof features. Moleskin and cotton shooting breeks are soft and durable, as well as wind and water-resistant. They have details including buckled or velcro cuffs, flap pockets, and comfort-grip waistbands that allow for fluid movement while stalking prey in a field. The overhang of the trousers helps to deflect water before it enters the top of the boots. eBay's large collection of outdoor sportswear includes traditional wool tweed breeks and modern olive green moleskin breeks. These trousers provide comfort and functionality while you enjoy the sport of kings.
