New apparel for waterfowl, upland and big-game hunters
Proper clothing doesn’t just play an important role in your hunting success—it’s also key to your personal safety in cold, wet or even hot conditions. Here are some factors to consider when purchasing new apparel.
Choose outerwear that’s durable and weather resistant, since it will face much more strenuous conditions than everyday clothing or sportswear would. Look for hunter-friendly features such as ammo, gear and call pockets, silent closures and fabrics, zip-cuffs to slip over boots, and padded or reinforced knees and elbows.
Cold-weather outerwear should be roomy enough to fit over base- and mid-layers. Ensure jackets and pants allow for freedom of movement to crouch, kneel or climb. Warmth typically comes at the cost of flexibility, so decide what’s most important for your hunt.
