KUIU Super Down LT Hooded Jacket
Engineered to be a warm yet lightweight mid layer, the Super Down LT Hooded Jacket from KUIU features a new face fabric that’s incredibly durable, quiet, and matte for optimal concealment. Quixdown insulation and an improved baffle structure offer cold-weather warmth, while a K-DWR treatment prevents the windproof jacket from getting saturated. A back-cinch hood and hem cinch allow for adjustability. The low-bulk fit is designed for standalone wear or layering and sports a drop-back hem for added coverage. The packable jacket can self-stow in the right pocket and double as a camp pillow. The Super Down LT Hooded Jacket is available in solid and camo colorways in women’s sizes XS-XL.

LaCrosse Alpha Evolution Boots
The latest evolution of LaCrosse’s Alpha technology, these boots keep feet comfortably dry and warm for a stealthy trek to the treestand. Flexible, hand-laid rubber over a neoprene core locks out moisture and offers an added layer of scent control. The 1600G PrimaLoft Gold and an Aerogel toe cap provide lightweight insulation throughout the entire season, while a quick-drying embossed liner wicks moisture away from feet and increases air circulation inside the boot. Thick EVA midsoles and a molded footbed combine for cushioned comfort that absorbs shock and retains its shape. The boots are built for traction and durability, thanks to multi-layer construction in high-wear areas and Vibram outsoles. Adjustable gussets and Active Fit construction allow for easy on and off. Finished in OPTIFADE Elevated II, Alpha Evolution boots are available in women’s sizes 5-11 (whole sizes only).
