NEW WOMEN’S GEAR FOR 2017
NEW GEAR FOR WOMEN SHOOTERS
The outdoor industry has come a long way from just adding pink to an existing product and calling it “female specific.”
The Alps Brand Monarch X women’s extreme backpack has contoured shoulder straps, a small waist belt and short torso length—all designed to fit a woman’s frame. The unique waist belt design includes pockets and anti-sway straps and accommodates clip-style holsters. A side fleece-lined wing pocket has a large enough opening to accommodate a spotting scope and any additional gear. There’s also a rifle or bow drop-down pocket, a shooting stick and tripod holder inside wing pockets, a hydration pocket with port and a rain cover.
Syren’s Range Tote is well made and sturdy. It is made of heavyduty 1680 Denier nylon, diamond-pattern-weave material with large, upgraded industrial zippers and buckles. This roomy tote can easily fit up to 12 boxes of shells and accessories. It comes in black with purple lining and the Syren logo embroidered on the front.
Undertech Undercover’s Zip Pocket Concealed Carry Leggings are made from the highest-quality, four-way-stretch Supplex jersey fabric with an “Anti Muffin-Top” waistband design. Whether you use a left- or right-handed draw, there is a pant design available for you. The two handgun holsters also have patent-pending retention straps for security. Legging sizes range from XS-XXL and come in black or olive green.
Smart Wool’s PhD Hunt Collection Sock features exceptional durability and comfort as a result of its patent-pending construction method. Greater stretch and recovery are obtained with a 4 Degree elite fit system. The socks have a narrow design that is specific to the shape of a woman’s foot.
5.11’s Wyldcat Pant is perfect for carrying inside the waistband, because it’s made of stretch sateen fabric. Offering eight pockets, there’s plenty of room for anything you might need to carry. The zipped leg gussets are perfect for those who wear boot-cut or straight-leg pants. The Wyldcat Pant is available in black, khaki, blush and grenade.
Kakadu Traders’ Kimberly Jacket is a traditional barn coat with a leather collar and zip closer. The two large, bellowed-bottom pockets have sideentry hand warmers. The internal, built-in holster chambers have concealed left- and right-hand side entries. Both internal chambers have anti-imprint pads and are reinforced with 300D nylon to ensure there is no chance of ripping or stretching. The Kimberly Jacket is available in corn silk or black.
Syren’s Gun Slip is the only way you should be carrying your shotgun, especially if you also have a Syren Range Tote. Like the tote, the Gun Slip is manufactured from a matching, heavy-duty 840 Denier nylon material with a diamond pattern weave. It is available in 50- and 52-inch sizes and will accommodate everything from a field gun to a trap gun. It fits both over/unders and semiautos. It comes in purple with a black lining and the Syren logo embroidered on the front.
Danner Explorer’s 650 is both lightweight and durable. These hiking boots feature a custom Vibram Escape outsole with Megagrip technology. Whether they are worn on wet or dry surfaces, the traction is best in class. With their Danner Dry waterproof protection, your feet are sure to stay dry, making them great either on the range or while hiking. The Explorer 650 is available in two colors.
Girls With Guns’ Stalker 1/4-Zip Long Sleeve Performance
Tee has an antimicrobial finish and is moisture wicking. The Alpine camo pattern’s unique shapes and design allow for color changes, making it unlike anything on the market. Also included in this line are the Stalker Baselayer Pant, Kilima Reversible Puff Jacket, Aoraki Lightweight Pant and Short Sleeve Performance Tee, along with the Artimes Midweight 3-Layer Softshell Jacket, Vest and Pants. All items are available in sizes XS-2X.
L.L.Bean’s Women’s Ridge Runner Soft-Shell Jacket is made from a breathable, windproof material that repels water and resists snags. It’s light enough for cool weather and warm enough for cold weather. A silicon print on either shoulder serves as a grip to keep your bag or sling in place. An asymmetrical zipper is both stylish and comfortable. Sold separately is the Ridge Runner Soft-Shell Pant.
