Camo made in the USA

Wed, October 23, 2013

DEARBORN, MI - Carhartt, America’s premium work wear brand since 1889, today announced an extension to its camo apparel partnership with Realtree ®, the world’s leading camouflage designer, marketer, and licensor. Two titans of workwear and camo have teamed up to create a line of camouflage apparel that will be made exclusively in Carhartt manufacturing facilities in Tennessee and Kentucky. Realtree’s new Xtra® camo pattern will be used on popular Carhartt styles and will be the only Realtree camo line made in the USA.camo pants

“This partnership with Realtree will give outdoorsmen a one-of-a-kind camo product because it combines an industry-leading camouflage pattern with tried-and-tested outerwear,” said Deb Ferraro, vice president, product design. “Carhartt has a long, rich history of manufacturing in the United States and we’re proud to be the only Realtree camo apparel made in the USA.”

“The Carhartt/Realtree partnership has been going strong for many years now,” said Realtree VP of Licensing, Brad Schorr. “Of course, that’s largely due to the fact that many of Carhartt’s large and loyal consumer base love their camo Carhartt gear! This new USA Camo program is only going to make that relationship between Carhartt and its fans that much stronger. We are thrilled to be involved.”

The new line of Carhartt Realtree apparel includes five items: Thermal-lined Duck Active Jac, Quilted-Flannel-Lined Duck Active Jac, Dungaree, Duck Bib Overall and Quilt-Lined Duck Bib Overall.

All five items will feature Realtree’s new Xtra pattern, which blends perfectly year round in a variety of habitats. It blends best from the leaf change of fall through winter, then again in early spring before green-out. Using proprietary printing technology, Realtree layers sharp foreground elements over a progressively ghosted mid-ground and very soft background. The versatile new camo design includes tree trunks, large and small limbs, leaves of many types and colors, and large open areas.
The Carhartt Realtree Xtra line of apparel is available online at http://www.carhartt.com and select stores beginning this fall. The camo line continues Carhartt’s strong manufacturing presence in the United States. Currently, seven of Carhartt’s most popular products are manufactured exclusively in the United States from materials that are sourced in the United States. Carhartt is the largest producer of workwear made in the United States.

Plano, IL (October 1, 2013) - Other outdoor gear usually doesn’t adapt well to hunting waterfowl because of the constantly wet, muddy and cold conditions. Tenzing’s engineers know that, and that’s why they have designed the Tenzing TZ WF13 Waterfowl Bag specifically for the purpose. 

First of all, the bag is roomy at 2,830 cubic inches and has lots of pockets, 27 in all, for keeping and organizing all items so you’ll know exactly where they are on each and every outing. Second, the bag is built to deal with the real conditions waterfowl hunters face.

The bag has a rigid and waterproof EVA base so it can be set down in a muddy and wet environment without fear of what will be soaking into it from the ground up. The rest of the bag is constructed from 600 Denier polyester with PVC waterproofing and DWR coating.

Additional protection to the bag and contents comes from its having two tops. One is zippered to keep gear in and elements out; the other is a storm shield cover that fully envelops the bag’s openings. The storm shield closes securely with DuraFlex buckles.

The bag’s main compartment features adjustable/removable dividers that allow for easy customization to take care of what’s being carried. Plus there’s a specialty pocket to organize a full collection of choke tubes.

Also included is a pull out fleece-lined hand muff fitted with an internal pocket for placement of hand warmers. The muff can be attached to waders or worn by its neck strap. The front of the muff has six elastic loops for holding shotshells near the hands for quick access.

Another well-thought-out convenience is the bag’s cell phone pocket. This is located on the back of the hand muff to make it easy to check with just a glance when shooting hours begin.  It has a clear cover for viewing and remains accessible while suited up for the cold.

For carrying convenience of the bag, as well as your birds from the hunt, there’s a padded shoulder strap that has six bird loop straps. There are three on front and three on back. The bird straps are contained in nifty little pockets sewn right into the shoulder strap. The bag also has a comfortable-to-grip heavy-duty handle located right on the top of the storm shield cover.

The TZ WF13 is available in Realtree Max-4 camo pattern and retails for around $199.99.

Rage 125-grain broadhead

Thu, May 16, 2013

CARTERSVILLE, Ga. (May 16, 2013) — At last year’s ATA Show, Rage introduced the most lethal broadhead to ever hit the market, the Rage X-tremeÔ. This year, Rage has expanded the line to include a 125-grain broadhead for those bowhunters who prefer a heavier broadhead.

Designed like its 100-grain counterpart, the 125-grain features a ferrule with a very low ballistic coefficient, a 2.3-inch cutting diameter and a sweeping blade angle that maintains kinetic energy longer and penetrates deeper than any other broadhead. The X-treme produces huge entry cuts, devastating wound channels and massive hemorrhaging for even better blood trails. The leading-edge blade at the tip of the X-treme is honed to surgical sharpness for exceptional bone-busting and tissue-slicing penetration on any game.

Designed with the recently patented Shock CollarÔ blade retention, the Rage X-treme broadheads are designed for dependable blade containment and optimal deployment at all times. This new technology ensures that your blades will remain in place until you are ready.

The new X-treme 125 broadheads are easily recognizable by their black ferrule. Rage X-treme broadheads were designed for use with bow draw weights greater than 55 pounds for best results. The X-treme 125-grain broadheads are available now at retailers nationwide with a suggested retail price of $49.99 for a 3-pack.

Thu, April 04, 2013

For 2013 Browning is adding a new 725 Feather 12 ga. model to the Citori line-up. The Citori 725 Feather combines a lightweight alloy receiver with a durable steel breech face and hinge pin for added strength. With a 28” barrel length, the 725 Feather weighs just 6 pounds 9 ounces.

The low-profile receiver design of the Citori 725 Feather features a silver nitride finish and accented, high relief engraving. The Fire Lite Mechanical Trigger system offers a light pull and, unlike an inertia trigger, does not need recoil to set up the next shot. The stock and forearm are made from Grade II/III walnut with a rich gloss oil finish.

To ensure a consistent shot pattern, the 725 Feather includes the Vector Pro lengthened forcing cones and Invector-DS choke tubes. For reduced felt recoil, it is fitted with an Inflex II recoil pad. The Browning 725 Feather is chambered for 3” shells and is available in 26” or 28” barrel lengths. Suggested Retail, $2,649.99.
