ScentLok Savanna Reign Jacket and Pants Offered in Mossy Oak Break-Up Country and Bottomland

Savanna Reign Jacket Mossy Oak BreakUp Country

WEST POINT, MS – Early season bow hunters face unique weather-related challenges. Hunting in the heat can be uncomfortable, but it can also make it a lot more difficult. Sweating it out on stand, you see, speeds the growth of smelly bacteria that can give away a hunter’s position. Regular afternoon rains can range from light sprinkles to soaking downpours, and an abundance of insects can add to the discomfort.

Thankfully, the die-hard bow hunters at ScentLok not only understand these special early-season challenges, but they’ve been engineering innovative and practical solutions to them for over 25 years now. And available now, for deer season all across North America, they’re proud to introduce the most effective early season bow hunting apparel ever conceived: the ScentLok Savanna Reign Jacket and Pant.

Savanna Reign Pants Mossy Oak Break-Up Country

Offered in Mossy Oak Break-Up Country (the official camouflage of QDMA) and Bottomland, Savanna Reign provides premium protection from precipitation with NeverWet®, a superhydrophobic treatment developed in partnership with Rust-Oleum®. Unlike temporary DWR treatments that wash away relatively quickly, this permanent fabric treatment sheds massive amounts of rain, mud and other liquids hunt after hunt, allowing hunters to remain dry and comfortable when the skies open up. Best of all, Savanna Reign with NeverWet® doesn’t sacrifice dryness for stealth. It keeps bow hunters dry without the use of stiff and noisy membranes, so they can stalk, climb and draw their bows in total silence.

Offering a hooded design with an integrated facemask, the Savanna Reign Jacket delivers full-coverage protection for maximum scent control, as well as welcomed protection against pesky insects. It also features an easy access safety harness opening, a pair of zippered waist pockets and a zippered chest pocket. Thin spandex cuffs provide a tidy tapered fit that facilitates an unencumbered draw and won’t interfere with a bow hunter’s release aid.

The versatile Savanna Reign Pant provides fast access to essential items via a flexible six-pocket design. A unique, non-slip waistbelt features an integrated webbing belt with a fast-adjusting buckle for a secure and comfortable fit. Leg zippers extend a full 20 inches up the outside of each pant leg for easy dressing over boots.

ScentLok Savanna Reign Early Season Jacket

• Carbon AlloyTM technology for odor adsorption
• NeverWetTM coating dramatically repels water, mud, and other liquids, keeping hunters dry and clean without a stiff and noisy membrane
• Safety harness opening for easy access
• Three pockets for storage (2 waist & 1 chest)

Specialty Features and Packages: Can-Am Off-Road Has it All for the Adventurous

Can Am Maverick Sport

Denver, Colorado, September 9, 2018 – BRP (TSX:DOO) continues to conquer the heart of off-road enthusiasts in North America and expands the Can-Am off-road brand’s footprint in the side-by-side industry by introducing an all-new Can-Am Maverick Sport MAX DPS 1000R and new innovative specialty packages.

The Can-Am Maverick Sport MAX DPS 1000R delivers riding excitement for up to four riders in a daring, precise and confident package. The versatile performance side-by-side vehicle is especially attuned for trails. A performance-grade suspension system with FOX 2.0 PODIUM QS3 shocks, power steering, and 60-in (152.4 cm) width improve the overall riding experience. A rear-mounted Rotax V-Twin engine supplies optimal performance and reduces cockpit noise.  

“The new Can-Am Maverick Sport MAX vehicle is designed for performance-driving enthusiasts who enjoy conquering off-road challenges alongside their friends and family,” said Bernard Guy, BRP Senior Vice-President, Global Product Strategy. “We continue to advance Can-Am ownership by equipping our vehicles with functional designs, superior ergonomics and specialty features to stand out against the competition.”

The designs and functions allow more comfort and roominess for four riders. Plus, to enrich the interior comfort, four ErgoPrint seats, additional foot rests and passenger grab bars complement the driver’s standard amenities.

More than 200 accessories are available at launch to let owners customize the vehicle to fit their needs. The Maverick Sport MAX DPS 1000R has a starting price of $18,999 US.

Specialty vehicles for rock crawling and mud riding

Can-Am also unveiled three specialty vehicles driven by the enthusiasts. The new Maverick Sport X rc side-by-side vehicle ($21,299 US) comes factory-equipped for rock-crawling with a wider stance, higher clearance and added interior and exterior protection for operation in harsh environments. The inclusion of Smart-Lok* with ROCK mode, high-grade FOX shocks, arched A-arms and larger tires provide exceptional maneuverability when the going gets rough.

The new Maverick Sport X mr ($20,999 US) and Defender MAX X mr ($20,799 US) side-by-side vehicles each target the mud-riding devotees with purpose-built refinements, including snorkeled air and engine intakes, but do so in different packages.

Can Am Outlander

The Maverick Sport X mr can accommodate two riders, while the Defender MAX X mr package can carry up to six adults with its dual rows of bench seating. Both side-by-side vehicles include Smart-Lok with MUD mode, higher travel, arched A-arms, a stable 64-in (162.6 cm) width, extended ground clearance and aggressive ITP mud tires for superior traction. The Maverick Sport X mr has a new gauge, FOX shocks and premium half doors for a more functional performance.

The new Can-Am Outlander 6×6 450 ATV, complete with true six-wheel traction and capability, has steel racks and other strategic changes to expand the 6×6 segment to new customers.

In September of 2015 BRP President and CEO José Boisjoli pledged to unveil a new side-byside vehicle every sixth months through the year 2020. The Maverick Sport MAX DPS 1000R is the seventh vehicle introduced since that time.

*Smart-Lok was developed in conjunction with TEAM Industries, a market leader in the drive train industry.

YETI® Expands Premium Outdoor Product Lineup with Tocayo Backpack, Boomer Dog Bowl, Lowlands Blanket, and More

YETI Lowlands

From YETI:

Austin, Texas (August 1, 2018) — YETI®, a leading premium outdoor brand, announces multiple new products to join its lineup. Today, the Austin, Texas-based company proudly reveals the TocayoTM Backpack, BoomerTM Dog Bowl, LowlandsTM Blanket, Rambler® Stackable Pints, and various Rambler® accessories.

“We are commited to building products that deliver innovation and premium performance for our customers,” says YETI CEO, Matt Reintjes. “Our teams are passionate about redefining everyday items by creating ones tough enough to withstand, whether in the backcountry or the backyard.”

YETI Backpack

The Tocayo Backpack is a rugged day pack engineered with a resilient exterior, superior padding, and ultra-strong zippers to keep your valuables protected, whether you’re commuting by floatplane, dirt road, or bike lane. Constructed with firm and durable EVA padding built into the base, back, and each compartment, the pack is designed to stand tall on its own and refuses to fall flat or tip over when you set it down.

This pack is built for maximum utility, with minimal exterior pockets and a sleek design. A QuickStashTM pocket located at the top of your pack keeps your earbuds, passport, or any other must-grabs permanently close by. The interior of the pack boasts a Rambler pocket on each side, which can snugly fit a variety of YETI drinkware, or even safekeep your dog leash or tennis shoes. A 360 ̊-protected laptop pocket and side-zip access gives you peace of mind as you carry your devices from point A to point B.

YETI Blanket

The Lowlands Blanket is ideal for laying low in epic spaces. Equal parts functional, plush and spacious, the ultra- durable Lowlands Blanket transforms every outdoor concert, tailgate, or backcountry post-up into your personal base camp. Featuring a waterproof bottom utility layer, as well as a supremely soft, insulated layer, Lowlands is there to keep you comfortable in any setting. To make this item even sweeter, this machine washable blanket repels dirt, burrs, and pet hair, and features reinforced loops at each corner so you can stake it down when needed.

YETI dog bowls

The Boomer Dog Bowl is designed to be as dependable and down for adventure as [wo]man’s best friend. This double-wall non-insulated dog bowl is constructed with ultra-durable kitchen-grade stainless steel to resist rust and roughhousing. Thanks to YETI’s BearFootTM non-slip base, it won’t slide across the floor, no matter how enthusiastically your pup chows down. Most importantly, Boomer is food safe and BPA-free so you can fill it to the brim with eight cups of fresh water, treats, or your canine’s favorite kibble, knowing your buddy is well fed and taken care of. And when they’ve licked the bowl clean, simply throw it in the dishwasher.

YETI mag slider

YETI is proud to introduce two new products to its Ramber line, including the 16oz Stackable Pint and Wine Tumbler MagSlider Lid. With elements that YETI fans have come to know and love, the Rambler Stackable Pint is constructed of 18/8 kitchen-grade stainless steel, features that familiar double-wall vacuum insulation, and includes a lid so you don’t waste a drop of your frosty beverage. These cups are easy to stack and pack so the whole crew can enjoy a cold one.

An add-on for YETI’s beloved Wine Tumblers, the Wine Tumbler MagSlider Lid ensures dirt and bugs stay out of your favorite varietal. The dishwasher-safe lid provides a snug seal that fits perfectly with your Tumbler.

All items listed will be available this fall on yeti.com. The Tocayo Backpack is available for $249.99 in two colors: black and tan. The Boomer Dog Bowl will be available for $49.99 in four colors: stainless, seafoam, black, and brick red. The Lowlands Blanket will be available for $199.99 in two colors: Smoke Blue and Fireside Red.

Montana Project Protects Wildlife Habitat, Expands Public Access

Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation

MISSOULA, Mont.—The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation worked with a conservation-minded family to permanently protect nearly 1,000 acres of elk habitat in southwest Montana. In addition to providing public access to the property, the project also greatly improves access to approximately 2,600 acres of adjacent public land.

“We appreciate Jerry and Linda Grow for recognizing the wildlife values of their land and reaching out to us to both protect it and open it to public access,” said Blake Henning, RMEF chief conservation officer.

The 960-acre parcel is located about 45 minutes south of Dillon in an area that includes a number of other RMEF land protection and public access projects. It is bordered on three sides by land managed by the Bureau of Land Management and the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest. RMEF now holds the property and will keep it open to public access until conveying it to the BLM, expected to happen later in 2018.

“We are very grateful for our partnerships with the private landowner, RMEF, and Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) who all were all instrumental in securing this property for the public and conserving this habitat,” said Cornie Hudson, BLM Dillon Field Office manager.

The property features high quality winter range habitat for as many as 700 elk and approximately 450 mule deer. It also supports moose, antelope, black bear, wolverine, greater sage-grouse and other wildlife. Both West Fork Little Sheep Creek and Straight Creek cross the immediate landscape providing vital riparian habitat for fish and other aquatic species.

The parcel will be incorporated into a grass bank to be periodically grazed by domestic livestock. Doing so will make it subject to prescribed fire and other stewardship work that will maintain high-quality habitat for wildlife and livestock alike.

The tract is also historic range for bighorn sheep that used it until a recent die-off. FWP is strongly considering the property for future bighorn reintroduction efforts.

Two small cabins are on currently on the site and will remain to be used as public rentals via the BLM recreation.gov system.

“We are so excited for the public to be able to experience this recreational opportunity!” added Hudson.

About the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation:

Founded over 30 years ago, fueled by hunters and a membership of more than 227,000 strong, RMEF has conserved more than 7.3 million acres for elk and other wildlife. RMEF also works to open and improve public access, fund and advocate for science-based resource management, and ensure the future of America’s hunting heritage.

2137171_PrimeJkt_000

He continued, “We knew the whitetail hunter was looking for a new color palette as well as features such as completely silent clothing, tree stand safety harness ports in the jackets and an overall warm and comfortable lineup. We feel like we checked off every box with the new camo pattern and product offering.”

Badlands Approach FX packs are available now with the new apparel line coming in June/July of 2018.
