Croots England: high quality Byland double shotgun slip with flap and zip: hand made by craftsmen in Malton, England, in English leather


A fine pair of shotguns—particularly best English guns—are prized possessions. Protecting them, while carrying them easily and comfortably, is important. And apart from functional value, gunslips make a definitive statement when you arrive at a shoot. The best full-grain leather slips are stylish and hard-wearing—and the best in Britain these days are made by Croots England in Yorkshire.

All who admire fine British craftsmanship will be impressed by these gunslips—they are exquisite. And Croots, who have been making their fine leather bridle hide pieces in the heart of Yorkshire racing country since 1978, are at the top of their game. They create these double gunslips in two different styles: here, the Byland, which is a high-quality handmade slip in three colours of hide—Dark Havana, Ox Blood and London Tan—the leathers tanned using natural drum dyeing and finishing processes to give a luxurious look and feel. This grade of leather is bridle hide, developed for English saddlery and bespoke shoes, ensures it performs beautifully as well as looking good. The Byland has vegetable-tanned bridle leather straps and trims with solid brass buckles and hand-stitched detail throughout. Both are two matching single gunslips which can be unbuckled and used separately. Each has a full padded fleece lining, protecting the guns from knocks as well as helping to absorb any moisture on the gun. They have a classic opening and buckle fastened flap, with an extra zip opening for easy drying. A comfortable leather shoulder sling, with even weight across the slips, makes carrying them easy.

RRP £809. CCUK £647 including UK mainland delivery.
