Lighter. Warmer. More stealthy. If you’re looking to upgrade your big game huntwear arsenal, let your search start here.

ScentLok Savanna Crosshair Aero Early Season Jacket & Pant. When your gear is lighter you can travel farther and hunt harder. ScentLok is helping with its new-for-2019 Savanna Aero Crosshair Jacket ($109.99-$129.99) and Pant ($119.99-$129.99) that are 20-percent lighter than previous Savanna Crosshair apparel.

This versatile mid-to-late season Jacket ($179.99) and Pant ($179.99) are absolutely dead silent with a soft, brushed face and micro-grid interior.Sitka Fanatic Jacket (Right & Lefty Versions). Die-hard mature whitetail hunters look for gear that will help them win one of Fall’s biggest challenges. Consider the newly redesigned Fanatic Jacket ($449; righty version shown) that takes the quest for silence to the next level by cutting the audible engagement distance with a deer in half. An enhanced high-loft Berber fleece face silences the new and ultra-quiet Gore-Tex Infinium with WindStopper Technology, which is packaged with PrimaLoft Silver Hi-Loft Ultra insulation for the coldest days in the stand by providing 20-percent more warmth than the prior model. A new body-mapped construction is designed to optimize the archery draw cycle for bowstring clearance on the left arm (Righty version) along with reduced bulk in the draw arm to keep you quiet and your arrow flight true. The Constant-Connect Sitka Safety Harness Port simplifies donning and doffing the jacket while secured to a torso-mounted harness tether, eliminating the need to disconnect from your harness when adding or subtracting layers.
Sitka Kelvin Active Hoody. An effective big game huntwear arsenal begins and ends with smart layering, and Sitka has it nailed. The new-for-2019 Kelvin Active Hoody ($269) is the ideal layering companion for Sitka’s Apex Hoody, providing highly breathable, lightweight, low-bulk insulation. The half-length sleeves reduce bulk, provide for bowstring clearance, and allow the wearer to utilize the elbow pads in the Apex Hoody. The 4-way stretch nylon shell provides unencumbered movement and a form-fitting hood provides optimized peripheral vision and low heat retention while on the move. A Durable Water Repellent coating repels moisture, and Polartec Alpha Direct Insulation eliminates the need for a liner to provide superior breathability and warmth in an ultralight package.Browning Hell’s Canyon CFS-WD Rain Suit. All hunters need dependable rain gear, and this fine suit ($99.99) covered in Mossy Oak Break-Up Country camo is both nicely packable (a definite bonus) and affordable. The “WD” means Warm and Dry, delivered by its water/windproof fabric with fully taped seams. You’ll also find hunter-friendly drawcord adjustable pants and hood, and harness access for treestand work.
