ScentLok Wind Brace Pro Jacket & Pant

ScentLok’s new wind gear is engineered to provide maximum protection from gusts plus reliable scent control without sacrificing comfort. The WindBrake barrier is fused to the company’s Carbon Alloy, which absorbs odors, between two layers of soft, quiet fleece. A wicking treatment keeps moisture away from the skin, while 80g Thinsulate provides added warmth on cold-weather hunts. The jacket sports a three-piece adjustable hood, safety harness port, adjustable cord-lock hem, and three pockets. The pants offer an elastic waistband, articulated knees, and four spacious pockets. The ScentLok Wind Brace Pro Jacket & Pant are each available in Realtree Excape or Mossy Oak Country DNA for $199.99 (sizes S-XL)-$209.99 (sizes 2X-3X).

ALPS OutdoorZ Upland Game Vest X 2.0

ALPS OutdoorZ

This upgraded upland vest from ALPS boasts the most versatile sizing of any single piece of its kind–the waist belt can easily adjust from 26 inches to 62 inches! The oversized game pocket also allows for 16 inches of adjustment, and the MOLLE system on the waist belt offers endless customization. The vest sports structured shell pockets with a one-handed magnetic opening that can double as a gun rest during long hunts. The shoulder straps are thin for lightweight comfort, and the vented back allows for plenty of airflow. A rear storage compartment and felt-lined pocket provide plenty of room for additional gear and personal items. Hydration-compatible, the Upland Game Vest X 2.0 is available for $199.99.

FORLOH Expedition Series Jacket and Parka

Built with the fiercest Greenland conditions in mind, FORLOH’s new Expedition Series features the first-ever 800+ fill USA down for warmth in extreme weather. The three-layer shells are fully seam-sealed, waterproof, and breathable for comfortable performance when skiing, hunting, or hiking. “Through-and-through” zippers allow for temperature regulation in changing conditions or activity level. Both pieces boast RECCO technology, micro-fit adjustable hood, several spacious pockets, and reflective logos for added safety. Like all FORLOH gear, they’re made 100% in the United States and backed by a lifetime guarantee. The FORLOH Men’s Expedition Jacket is available in sizes S-3XL, and the Women’s Expedition Parka is available in sizes XS-XL. Both come in FORLOH Red, Magnet, Slack, and Snowfall camo for $1,195.

Irish Setter Elk Tracker XD Hunting Boots

Irish Setter

Irish Setter is expanding its line of Elk Tracker boots for 2023 with XD models that are even more durable and rugged for backcountry expeditions. The new styles feature full leather camo uppers with leather gusset overlays to lock out dirt and debris. TempSens technology regulates temperature and wicks away moisture for more comfortable feet, while UltraDry waterproofing prevents precipitation from entering the boots. The lace-to-toe fit, which reduces foot movement inside, is ideal for steep climbs. A Cushin tongue, EnerG material underfoot, and Vibram outsoles provide comfort, support, and traction in tough terrain. Equipped with ScentBan to eliminate odors, Irish Setter Elk Tracker XD Hunting Boots will be available in a variety of Primaloft insulated and non-insulated styles from $249.99-$259.99.
