Great hunting apparel needs to be functional and performance driven, but nobody says it shouldn’t look good too. While few people will ever view hunters in the same light as football players or Olympic runners, there is no doubt that hunting is a performance sport. We spend long hours weathering the cold, rain and other elements. We make extended hikes over rugged terrain, slogging through muddy marshes and swamps and over wooded ridges and rocky peaks. We do all of this while dragging and packing heavy loads, and then we try to precisely place shots with our hearts racing and lungs hyperventilating. A hunter is endlessly challenged both physically and mentally. And, just as they are for an athlete, the right gear and clothing for the task are a must. Here is a roundup of performance apparel for hunters that will keep you comfortable, in the field longer, and always ready for the tasks ahead.
