The Seeland brand was developed in Scandinavia in 1976. A family of hunters were crying out for hard wearing outdoor clothing and footwear that would not let them down while stalking and hunting in challenging conditions.
The family knew what was required of their kit and the specific demands that the natural Scandinavian landscapes presented to them.
The Seeland brand represents, good quality clothing and footwear at a price that can be afforded by all. In essence “Good Value for Money”
Over the past 40 years the brand has evolved and is lucky enough to have some of the most talented designers in the business. Creating, hard wearing, technical products that cater for all types of stalking, shooting and hunting.
Seeland clothing and footwear is ideally suited to the “workers” on a shoot, the gamekeepers, the beaters, the picker ups. The countrymen and women that are working in difficult terrains, often wet and hard going, the team members that require their kit to exceed expectations so that the job gets done!
Our footwear designer Richard Edwards, has been working hard for the past 2 years to introduce a short boot to the collection. Seeland is well known for producing high quality rubber boots but never before has it offered a short boot ideal for game keepers and beaters alike.
Seeland produces families of products and the Hawker range has been hugely successful for stalking but also for all round use. The new Hawker High 10 “and Hawker low boot 7” are part of this family.
The boots are constructed with panels of rubber, leather, nubuck and mesh, with a Seetex waterproof membrane, providing the best combination of flexibility and protection. The outsole is made from shock absorbent EVA foam next to the foot and a patterned non slip rubber on the outside. They have a glass fibre shank making the boots extremely flexible for optimum movement.
All this combined makes the boots extremely lightweight, but robust on difficult ground and the high version provides excellent protection again tall vegetation. The laces are compatible for wearing the Seeland Buckthorn gaiters for extra coverage.
The short boot has been designed for the wearer to cover large areas on foot, the protection offered is the same as the high boot and the construction and sole are also designed for trekking and stalking.
Probably the most important highlight of these boots is the price, the Hawker High boot retails at £129.99 and the Hawker Low boot retails at £99.99.
