Completing the line are a versatile polyester Hoodie (shown above) ($40) and a Long-Sleeve Tee Shirt ($35), both featuring double-needle stitching for durability and flat-lock seams for comfort. They’re available in popular, field-proven Realtree Xtra camouflage.Huntworth Mid-Weight Soft Shell Apparel. Huntworth has added a new, mid-weight soft shell jacket and pant, with matching beanie and gloves to its well-rounded line of functional, affordable hunting clothing and accessories.
