Under Armour Ridge Reaper Collection

Under Armour's new Ridge Reaper collection is specifically designed to meet the needs of bowhunters.

When it comes to jobs you really want done right, you need tools specifically designed for your task. If bowhunting is your task, you'll really enjoy using apparel specifically designed for the job. Under Armour's new Ridge Reaper collection is just that -- specifically designed to meet the needs of bowhunters. The Ridge Reaper line was inspired by UA athlete Cameron Hanes. It features a lightweight yet warm and durable soft-shell fabric that incorporates a polymer treated inner lining to help contain scent. The garments are whisper quiet, but what is most appealing to me is their fit.

The jacket and pants are tight where they need to be, and comfortably loose wherever they can afford to be. For instance, the jacket fits like a bowhunter's dream. The arms are snug, eliminating (for most) the need to use an arm guard. The precision cut zippered cuffs protect the back of your hands from the elements while allowing room around the thumbs for maximum dexterity. Extra room is included under the arms, allowing full range of motion. The collar extends to the bottom of your jaw, but zips tight enough around the neck to stay clear of your bowstring. The pants feature zippered cuffs for easy removal over boots, a comfortable mid-rise waist and extra room in the seat and thighs.


All seams on this well thought out line of apparel are taped and sealed for maximum water resistance. Bowhunters have very specific needs. They are entirely different than duck hunters, firearm hunters or any other style of hunter, for that matter. You can certainly get the job done with apparel designed to do it all, but I believe you'll find it takes less effort in apparel like Ridge Reaper -- a tool designed for the task at hand.
