Thread: Camo Handlers Jacket

  1. #1

    Default Camo Handlers Jacket

    Saw quite a few Camo Handlers Jackets that guys were wearing at the Grand. Been looking at various websites and can't seem to find anything.
    Lion Country Supply has nice White or Black ones with the mesh back but no camo ones.
    Anyone know if there is a distributor of these jackets or were they a special event jacket?

    Second Richard's advice. Give Dave a call.

    Im not trying to start the old camo debate, but I have to admit, I'm puzzled why people want these things. The last thing I want is for a dog to not see me.

    At trials, obviously I handle in white (or black), at AKC HT's I handle in black, and when I used to run HRC, I always tried to handle in short sleeves so my arms made a contrast. Even if it was brutally cold, I would wear a jacket to the last holding blind and tough it out during our run.

    Yep, call David Carrington. The jackets you saw are Avery. If you order one, I want to order one with you.

    Shawn,

    David can fix you up. They were selling them in the past at Grands so that is why you saw some at this last Grand.

    Learned RTFer Goldenboy 'splained it best years ago. Though at the time he was speaking about field trials. But it is the same. I tried to search for the original line. I thought it was one of Miriams threads.
    Anyway he typed....
