One of the new companies on the SHOT Show floor this year was founded by former members of our armed forces who are bringing what they learned on the battlefield about camouflage and putting it into quality hunting gear. Kryptek hasn’t forgotten about the right materials either. Several of its base layers are composed of 100-percent Merino wool, which wears like iron and helps hold your heat, even if it gets wet. If you prefer not to smell like a wet sheep after that 2,000 foot ascent, consider the company’s Sherpa Shirt. It is composed of grid fleece for warmth, yet it is quick drying, lightweight and the fabric technology has been proven on the front lines. For those times when the weather really turns bad, the 100-percent waterproof and windproof Aegis Extreme Weather Jacket is the answer. It features all of the company’s layering system, yet is still lightweight and compacts well for travel. With body-mapped insulation, your warmth is ensured in all the right places, pit zips allow ventilation during strenuous activity, welded zippers ensure longevity and the hood can be removed. To seal out those sudden gusts, there are wrist tabs and a hem cinch adjustment. If you’re looking for cutting-edge gear for your next hunt, you’ll want to take a close look at what Kryptek is bringing to the market.
