Sawtooth Hybrid Jacket: 

Hiking out of a deep hell hole with a heavy pack, hustling to get to “the spot” or simply chopping wood in my backyard, I like to shed layers and get minimal coverage on my upper body to prevent excessive sweating. A long sleeve layer is fine here until the moment I stop and then, of course, it takes a little time before my body temp drops and I need to keep moving. From day one, I fell head over heels for the Sawtooth Hybrid because of its ability to be that hybrid layer between a long sleeve t-shirt and a full on mid-layer jacket. This piece is an essential part of my kit.

Men's SEAK Stormtight Pant & Jacket: 

It was the last weekend of archery season and a friend and I had spotted a giant bull that I had a trail camera images from earlier that year. He was about 2 miles away as the crow flies through vertical country and there was an hour left of daylight. We got an early start the next morning and by daybreak had found his tracks from the day before. We spent the entire day above 9000 feet slowly working through the trees hoping to cut a fresh pair of tracks.  The snow up there was shin high and the temperature was dropping and the wind was picking up as well.  We must've covered 10 miles in deep snow that day without snowshoes and the SEAK Stormtight pants and jacket became an extension of my body. I had never experienced gear that handled rain, wind  and snow while still being breathable and comfortable. It felt as though I was wearing armor. We never cut that bull’s track and I came to hear about him being shot in rifle season by another hunter. I’m psyched for that hunter and look back fondly on that hunt. Thanks to this system, I was warm and dry.

Men's Chamberlin Down Jacket: 

In 2012, I went through three months of chemotherapy in my battle with testicular cancer. One of the nasty side effects of that treatment was that my extremities get cold quickly now. Staying warm has become a mission and a little bit of a problem-solving set up that's required ingenuity and the right gear. When the Chamberlin down jacket came around it literally was like an SOS ring being cast out to me at sea. Now, I don't go on any adventure between September to May without the jacket.
