Game Gear NZ
Ballistic Rip Collar
We design and sample all our clothing right here in New Zealand. Our fit is a generous Kiwi fit and we have designed our garments based on wearing layers of clothing. Essentially if you normally wear a size large fleece or thermal you will find a raincoat in size Large is designed to fit over these other layers of clothing.
The size chart below will allow you to ensure you get the right fit before you order online. When you order from us we are happy to swap over any garments for another size - if you return the incorrect size to us we will cover the freight cost to immediately send the replacement garment back to you.
DESIGNED IN NZ
New Zealand is a hunters paradise and offers the most amazing testing ground for outdoor clothing. We are based in Te Puke and are within 2 hours drive of snow covered mountains to the south or the rugged hills and rivers of Gisborne and the Motu area along the coast.
Weather changes quickly and with a large amount of hunting done on foot you need to carry the right gear at all times. We design our clothing to be light in physical weight and heavy on performance.
Our gear is extensively tested before being released for sale. This process starts with our pattern maker who first takes our ideas and creates a base pattern we can work to. Then its the sample machinist who steps in to make the first prototype sample. Here is where the real fun begins and anyone coming in to our outlet store will notice the gentleman's hours of 9-4pm Monday to Friday. This isn't so we can get away from work, in fact it is completely the opposite. A big part of our success is that we thrash all our prototype samples in one of the toughest hunting applications -Pig hunting.
Product testing and ensuring our gear works is a huge part of our success. This takes us out of the office and into some awesome spots and we meet some great people along the way. We all have different reasons for getting outdoors - our passion is hunting. We have partnered with one of NZ's best young film producers so you can come along with us as we test our gear in some of New Zealand's most beautiful scenery.

Our Balistic Rip collars are designed using the latest in fabric technology. These collars are light and extremely strong. They feature secure D Ring attachments that most popular tracking collars slide into. These collars are flexible and allow the dog plenty of movement - perfect for fast agile dogs and strong enough for all holding dogs. Because of the synthetic fabric used these collars only hold 6% water and dry very quickly - your dogs will not get chaffed in these collars.
2 sizes available - MEDIUM = 350mm to 500mm X LARGE = 430mm - 600mm
Measure right around your dogs neck in the same position the collar will fit.
I have used a ballistic rip collar on my finder stopper for 2 years now. They are strong but don't chafe,allow for free movement, dry quickly and are easy to fit
Used these on my mead head holders for a few years now. Not had any issues at all with them, thick and strong enough to take the blows and flexible enough for them to move without any noticeable restriction. Had tried a few other brands prior but kept having chaffing issues on the dogs necks rubbing them raw by the end of the hunt.
Never once had this issue with these collars, hence really rate them! They go on nice and easy, without fuss too which is a bonus. Pretty sure i cut off one of the D shackles on top as it was pinging on the tracking collar i was using at the time. Its not an issue with the T5 collars though. Non-the-less they're there if you need them, if not they lop of easy as with your trusty master key!
