    Water won't hurt them, I regularly submerge my binos in warm soapy water for cleaning. As far as the bino harness goes, it takes a ton of water to soak through and make the lenses fog even without...

    Don't be intimidated, it's not that bad to plan once you get started. I started putting together our September trip last November, and 9 months was more than enough time to iron out all the details....

    I would think adding the down pants under your Northbranch pant would be a really nice treestand setup for the cold. The down-proof coating on the SuperDown nylon really adds to its ability to block...

    I like to pack the SD Pants on hunts that see temps in the mid 20s or lower. Not that mid-20s is all that cold, but having the down pants allows me to pack a light 30-Degree sleeping bag. If it's...

    I've used them- they're pretty nice. They won't replace my go-to binos, but they are nice optics. They'll be a top competitor in that price range once word gets out- assuming the "business" end is...

    To each his own. I'll confirm a 250 yard shot with my rangefinder every time. I'm also ready to crank my reticle down 6.25 MOA for a 550 yard shot if that's what the situation calls for. I just spent...

    I don't think it's a matter of what the boots are made for vs. the amount you used them. It's simply the fact that they can't put the boots back into their inventory if the soles show any wear. A...
