As bowhunters, so much of what we do involves our feet and backs. Whether we’re hiking in to a treestand, chasing down a monster buck or shed tracking in the off-season, it’s essential that we protect ourselves with rugged boots and lightweight, durable packs. Not only is it a matter of utility, it’s also a matter of comfort.
Fortunately, there were a lot of new boots and packs on display at the 2013 ATA Show in Louisville, Ky. For off-season horn hunters, Irish Setter introduced the new Shed Tracker boots, which are lightweight enough to do some serious hiking, but sturdy enough to take a beating. LaCrosse also introduced its new AeroHead boot, which is great for a wet day in the field or a long sit in the treestand.
Check out the rest of the great new boots and packs on our list, with exclusive coverage from the 2013 ATA Show.
