The iconic Stormy Kromer, a wool blend helps resist any weather you throw at it. With its iconic look and lasting performance no wonder they haven’t changed it in a century. This classic lid will keep you warm and dry while in the field or at camp – it’s classic northern look can’t be beaten.
Gloves are a very personal item when it comes to hunting, fishing and outdoors people. The ability to keep you warm, but be very functional is a challenge often not met by most gloves. While the original intent for Mechanix gloves was for work don’t be fooled. These gloves are literally workhorses and do a great job of keeping your digits warm, too. With carbon-infused touchscreen capable and excellent breathability, these gloves should be a go to for anyone looking to get their hands dirty.
Rig’Em Right Blind Bag
When it comes to duck hunting, there’s no denying the need for a blind bag – hello morning snacks. This bag is bullet proof and water proof and all around marsh proof, ready for the harshest of duck hunting conditions with room for everything you could need in the blind – including extra shot shells. Don’t hit the blind without it.
It’s tall, it’s insulated and the perfect all day mug from coffee to beer – this thing is the real deal, and now that it’s not glass it’s safe for camp. There’s no reason to drink from anything else, we even recommend taking it to your local watering hole (do not mention this article for permission).
For an added $10 you can completely customize your mug with a monogram, design or custom logo too. Cheers!
The same Stanley your granddad used when he got up before dawn to milk the cows and feed the horses. It’s still as great as ever – this 2 QT bottle can hold an entire pot of coffee and keep it warm for up to 45 hours! If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it – this is the tried and true real deal Stanley. Fill it and don’t come home till it’s gone.
Anker Portable Charger
Cell phones are ubiquitous these days and we use them for everything from GPS, to music to snapping a picture of great and successful day afield. The one thing we can all agree on isn’t our brand of phone, but that the battery always dies before the sunsets – don’t let that affect your usage anymore. This Anker portable charger has it’s own pocket and is part of my EDC. Get one now, not when you wish you had one.
Whether you are the camp cook or working in your wood shop this Carhartt apron is meant to be put to the test. Protect your clothing and keep all your tools right at your finger tips and never misplace your hammer or spatula. You’re ready for whatever is thrown at you!

This little tool can take your cooking from decent to restaurant quality in just the time it takes to bubble bath your quarry. This little tool cooks your meat, veggies or really anything to the perfect temp – and does so without having to watch it or keep an eye on it.
