• Game management students wear their Ridgeline clothing during an outdoor practical session

Our Game Management students are trialling a range of all weather gear from Ridgeline Clothing, a leading supplier of fit-for-purpose clothing for outdoor professionals.

In return the students will be providing user reviews on the performance and looks of jackets, smocks, trousers, fleeces, base layers and headwear for a dedicated section on the company’s website.

Our Countryside Department has an ongoing partnership with Ridgeline, which also sponsors our annual award for the best Level 3 Extended Diploma in Game Management student.

Ridgeline Product Development Manager Nigel Winkle explained: “We take pride in producing clothing which not only looks the part but really works. We are constantly evolving with the production of new materials and technology and part of this process is to understand the requirements of those out in the field.

“We value the input of next generation game keepers such as those from Reaseheath College and are looking forward to seeing their comments.”

Game Management Course Leader Matt Goodall said: “The relationship we have with Ridgeline is excellent. By trialling kit in this way, our students get a great insight into the type of clothing they will need in the challenging environments they will be working in.”

“Ridgeline has also provided them with discounted rates, allowing them to really take advantage and purchase the garments they have trialled. This ensures they keep warm and dry while looking professional.”
