Alps Outdoorz RenegadeX Stuff Sacks
When space in your hunting pack is limited, these stuff sacks allow you to use the rolltop closure and side compression straps to squeeze out every last ounce of unwanted air and pack your gear into a waterproof sack. The Renegade X features a proprietary ‘Air Control’ fabric which permits excess air from inside the stuff sack to escape during the compression process. In addition, a coating is applied to the nylon ripstop fabric, and the seams are fully sealed, which means it’s actually waterproof. The Renegade X is the perfect compression stuff sack for wet environments (although it’s not submersible). Available in multiple sizes: small, medium, large, and extra large.

The Hevi-Hammer upland round has a 15% higher density bismuth than the standard steel shot used in other upland rounds. That means these lethal pellets will hit game hard. Because of the increased density bismuth, upland hunters can generally shoot one shot size smaller than usual. The pellets used are non-toxic and offer hunters a dependable option for areas where lead is prohibited or for those who choose to be a bit more environmentally conscious with their hunting loads. Available in both 12 and 20 gauges.
