Sitka Gear EWS System
While Sitka Gear is known for producing mid and late-season gear that helps whitetail hunters outlast inclement and frigid weather, the company also makes great early season gear too. That's seen in the new Sitka Gear Whitetail ESW System, one designed to be worn alone during warmer hunts or as a base-layer as the season progresses. With Permanent Polygiene Odor Control Technology, the ESW System also has quiet fabrics that are bodymapped for breathability. With scent-free ventilation, the company says that hunters can stay dry and undetected even on days where sweat is coming fast and furious. Sporting a minimalist design, the ESW shirt has silent snaps and mesh armpits while the durable four-way stretch polyester pants feature cargo pockets with silent snaps and divided gear panels.

Browning Featherweight Upland Hunting Boots
Yes, the eight-inch Browning Featherweight is an upland boot, the kind that Browning Footwear is famous for creating. But the boot is equally home in early to mid-season treestands and ground blinds, thanks to TRULAST technology that uses performance foot-shape geometry for better fit and enhanced comfort. With Crazy Horse leather uppers and woven Codura panels adding abrasion resistance, the boot's classic rubber sole provides grip and traction while its Climate Command locks out moisture while keeping a hunter's feet warm and dry in rainy/muddy conditions. Known worldwide for making some of hunting's most comfortable, lightweight boots, the new Browning model is available in Bracken and Potting Soil/Forest Night colors. The bottom line is that this boot works for bowhunters as well as pheasant hunters!
