Best English bridle leather double gunslips by Croots England: the Malton, with complimentary personalisation for CountryClubuk Members
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: the Byland, which is better than most, and the Malton, which is unsurpassed.
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.
The Malton exhibits the highest level of craftsmanship in every detail. This slip has the best of everything—natural vegetable-tanned leather, hand-cured and stained, producing a smooth aniline finish, hand waxed and hand-stitched. This age-old process of fats, oils and waxes feeds the leather, adding a deep layer of protection and giving a very distinctive look. The buckles are solid brass. The Malton is in Dark Havana ior Chestnut. It looks superb—quality obvious even from a cursory glance.
