Slumberjack will be releasing their SJK Tactical Hunting Gear line during SHOT Show, which was developed using input from highly experienced hunters. The line includes packs, insulated tree stand bags, and tents, and is constructed from lightweight, durable materials using Kryptek camouflage. Below is a preview of 3 of the products that will be available under the SJK Tactical Hunting Gear brand.
The Bounty 4500 is a 74-liter pack designed for high elevation hunts and big game. It features an expandable load-carry system which allows meat to be carried close to the back for better load support. The Bounty also features a detachable day pack with organizational pockets, a built-in rifle shooting platform, and a main pack bag that can be completely removed from the frame. The military-grade, dual stay suspension system supports heavy loads over long distances on uneven terrain. A stowable, versatile weapon carry system accommodates rifles or bows and large twin side pockets carry optics, bipods, and other essentials.
The Thermal Cloak is designed to offer protection from the elements as well as act as a personal blind. Tactical hood styling allows the wearer to maintain peripheral vision and hearing. The fabrics used are waterproof and seam taped to repel wind, rain, and snow, while 160g of synthetic insulation keeps the wearer warm. The bottom of the cloak is open to allow the wearer to feel the edges of their tree stand to ensure proper footing. The cloak can also be cinched up around the wearer’s knees for increased mobility. The arm ports are self-sealing (via magnets) that allow for the wearer to move into a firing position. The front zipper and hand warmer pocket help regulate temperature.
The Sightline was developed specifically for overnight hunting trips – available in 1 and 2 person versions. It features a field-of-view window to maximize line-of-sight for glassing game. A rifle-specific sleeve allows the user to keep their weapon close at hand. It uses light and durable 7001 aluminum poles, and a full coverage rain fly with taped seams which repels even the hardest downpours with little effort. The Sightline comes with a dark green rainfly to help it blend into the environment.
