With growing participation numbers among women, more and more manufacturers are developing dedicated bowhunting gear for the fairer sex. Here are some of the most buzzworthy new products for ladies from the 2019 ATA Show.
ALPS Allure Women’s Whitetail Pack
ALPS developed a new whitetail pack to perfectly fit a woman’s figure with contoured shoulder straps and adjustable waist belt for tailored sizing. The Allure features a self-standing L-shape frame and a variety of pockets for 2,050 cubic inches of organized storage at just over 4 pounds. Finished with Realtree Edge camo, the Allure sports a drop-down weapon pocket and a D-ring clip for hanging from a tree.
LaCrosse Windrose Boot
Featuring a lightweight platform underfoot with a rugged leather and textile upper, the new Windrose from LaCrosse is the perfect versatile boot to take you into the late season. A DuraFit heel cup provides durability and comfort support, while the Dry-Core waterproof lining keeps feet completely dry. Windrose boots are available in brown, Realtree Edge and Mossy Oak Break Up County with 600G or 1000G Thinsulate Ultra insulation.
Prois Dionla Rain Gear
Part of Prois’s new women’s line featuring Veil Cumbre camo, Dionla Rain Gear is both completely waterproof and highly breathable. The durable construction is quiet and lightweight for stealthy backcountry hunts. The jacket sports an athletic fit that won’t restrict movement when drawing your bow. A fine scrim of mesh bonded to the interior of both the jacket and pants provide comfort during long days afield.
Sitka Women’s Celsius Midi Vest
For added core warmth without bulk in your bowhunting sleeves, Sitka’s new Women’s Celsius Midi Vest features 80-gram PrimaLoft Silver Active Insulation in a durable nylon shell that can easily fold up in your pack. Mapped 4-way stretch side panels offer a customized fit, ideal for layering from early- to late-season hunts. And Sitka’s new Constant-Connect Safety Harness Pass-Through Port allows you to add or remove layers while remaining safely hooked up.
Sitka Women’s Merino Lightweight Hoody
Constructed of premium merino wool spun around a strong nylon core, the Women’s Merino Lightweight Hoody from Sitka wicks moisture from skin and keeps you warm while providing the durability you need on backcountry hunts. A form-fitting hood and drop-tail in the back offer excellent coverage without added bulk. With next-to-skin comfort and natural odor control qualities, this Hoody is the perfect base layer for stealthy hunting.
