Upland Gear and Clothing
Your upland life is pretty gear-centric. But there's an undeniable
pleasure in being outside in most any sort of weather, with you, your
dog, and your shotgun comfortable and ready for action.
Readiness, of course, does not have to come at the expense of style. A
certain amount of pride in how you look and feel in the field (and
in the lodge for dinner) can really contribute to your enjoyment
of the lifestyle.
Like most areas of upland gear and supply, there are different markets
made up of different consumers and the vendors that serve them. To the right,
we've provided links to some of our favorite online suppliers. Remember:
it's hard to beat your favorite local shop for personal advice, a nice
fitting room, and proximity. But when you know what you want, and it's a
commodity or standard item - there's a lot to be said for a few mouse clicks,
an ultra-competitive price, and the UPS truck rolling up to your door without
you burning travel time and a tank of gas. Does it seem like we're not making
very many suggestions? The truth is, when you're shopping online for a niche
item like upland hunting gear and clothing, you want a well-stocked supplier
that carries a wide variet of brands, and that has a rational return/exchange
policy. There are only so many that fit that profile and which also run pleasant,
easy-to-use web sites. We've become partners with the folks you see here
because we personally purchase gear from them and are happy to
endorse their services. Let us know if you
have any comments about these links, or additions you'd like to see us make.
