Apricoat Down Jacket

This hooded jacket is suited for a wide range of fall and winter weather. Its water-repellent ripstop polyester shell also includes a polyester insulation layer that provides the weight and warmth benefits of down without the downsides of wet compression and special care. In addition, the intuitive placement of 11 IntuPockets throughout the jacket enable you to balance your load of critical EDC gear. Rugged shoulder reinforcements are backpack friendly, and the fleece side panels move with you during active periods. Its integrated gloves are a great asset in colder weather and are impossible to lose.

Dark Energy Mavrik Wireless Charging Pad

Dark Energy, creator of the rugged Poseidon Power Bank, is proud to announce the new Mavrik Wireless Charging Pad.

It’s compatible with all Qi-enabled wireless charging systems, as well as Apple Magsafe, and incorporates alignment light guides to ensure your device is in the optimal position for charging.

Anarchy Outdoors Ruger Extended Magazine Release

The Ruger Precision Rimfire Rifle has gained a huge following because of its precision and as a training tool for the long-range rifle discipline. Anarchy Outdoors has addressed one of the rifle’s few deficiencies by creating an easy-to-use extended magazine release. While the original magazine release is functional, it can be hard to access. This innovative, new “Whale Tail” design provides easy access and rapid mag changes. Each Whale Tail is precisely manufactured from T6061 aluminum and is available in a variety of anodized finishes.

Fishing Kit

Exotac is well-known for its innovation and extreme quality. The brand-new xREEL continues that tradition. The xREEL is an all-in-one hand line fishing kit that’s small enough to be stowed in a pocket and capable enough to keep you fed in the backcountry. Each xREEL is expertly machined from high-grade aluminum. The exterior of the xREEL holds more than 50 feet of 15-pound test monofilament. A soft TPE finger loop provides a comfortable, secure grip when using the reel. The perimeter of the reel is machined with a continuous series of hook parking holes for safe storage. Unscrewing the top cap reveals a large, watertight compartment that’s designed to hold a variety of accessories. Each xREEL is delivered with two bobbers, six split shot and five hooks.

Lems Boulder Boots Mid Leather

I’m a huge fan of Lems Boulder Boots. This footwear features a wide toebox, a Zero-drop design, moderate cushioning and extreme flexibility. As a bonus, Boulder Boots are exceptionally lightweight and ruggedly constructed. I consider these to be moccasins made with modern materials. New for 2021, Lems has introduced its Boulder Boot with a mid-height upper. By taking a little off the top, the boots are even lighter and more packable than the originals. These boots also feature a new cork footbed to improve breathability, comfort and microbial resistance.

Federal Personal 
Defense Punch .22LR

Not everyone feels comfortable with full-sized centerfire firearms and ammunition. Federal has developed its new Personal Defense Punch .22LR for those who want to maximize the defensive performance of the .22LR cartridge. The 29-grain bullet is rated at 1,070 fps out of a 2-inch barrel. This translates to 1,650 fps when shot from a 24-inch rifle barrel. The flat-nosed lead projectile is nickel plated, as is the cartridge case, and the ammunition has been designed for clean, smooth functioning in a wide variety of firearms. Whether you’re hunting small game or defending yourself and your family, the new Federal Punch ammunition is designed to work every time you pull the trigger.
