Upland Hunting Gear makes difficult upland hunting for quail, pheasants, partridge and grouse a lot easier and more fun.
When the birds are holding in heavy grasses, rough terrain, thick brush and sharp briars you'll need every advantage you can find like the great looking vest at the right – – >.
Your upland hunting gear must be made for the task and sturdy enough to protect you from the environment while light enough to backpack over miles of ground while searching for these challenging birds.
Upland birds tend to be found in heavy cover on the ground, so smart hunters generally employ gun dogs to both flush and retrieve their game.
Many states require upland hunters to wear upland hunting clothing in blaze orange for safety purposes since color and pattern blends that hide hunters can often be dangerous.
These hunters often wear vests designed to carry ammunition, game, and other supplies specifically suited for the pursuit of upland game.
Who Says Technology Can't Be Applied To Upland Hunting Gear?
Browning has developed a new line of upland hunting gear called Bird'n Lite Upland Gear.
Some key pieces of this new line are the upland hunting vests and the jackets that Browning has developed for Bird’n Lite.
Bird’n Lite jackets and vests feature integrated a load-bearing system that lift the load being carried higher and balances it between your shoulders and hips for more stability and comfort.
You can carry more equipment with less effort and for longer periods and distances than you could with your old hunting vest. Browning made these improvements while still retaining the fashion look of traditional upland hunting clothing.
Weight Distribution Is Important When You're Hunting All Day
Browning's new technology makes sure that weight is distributed properly.
More of your upper body muscles are used to distribute the weight and this is especially important if you have lower back pain or a bad back.
Wide nylon shoulder straps shift the weight of the load to your shoulders without interfering with your ability to shoulder your shotgun and swing through the bird.
Your shoulder straps are kept centered by the sternum strap which is buckled around your chest with quick-release buckles.
With all your upland hunting gear in place, you have less fatigue and more comfortable balance. It also prevents the shoulder straps from shifting and chaffing.
Now You Can Shift The Weight Of Gear To Your Hips And Legs
Another recent improvement in upland hunting gear is that the take-up side straps are quickly and easily adjusted within the game bag pockets so that the ends of straps and buckles are not flapping around.
You can adjust your load's center of gravity to suit your comfort and balance requirements.
At that point the entire weight of the vest or jacket is distributed evenly between your hips and shoulders.
Your hips and waist are strong but have not been previously used by upland hunting jackets for weight and load bearing.
Bird’n Lite gear addresses this issue and uses your hips more, reducing the load on your lower back.
It's Important To Have Plenty Of Places For Your Gear
Browning's Bird’n Lite upland hunting clothing items includes the Bird’n Lite Jacket, the Strap Vest, and the Lite Vest.
The Strap Vest and Lite Vest are both made of lightweight but rugged cotton/polyester fabric shells and front-loading game bags that are blood-proof with load-stabilizing straps.
They both have oversized shell pockets that close with snaps and have internal shell loops.
Both types of vests come with built-in elastic topped ruck sacks, water bottle pockets and lined hand-warmer pockets located behind shell pockets.
Both vests are also equipped with D-rings for accessories and a license tab.
The Strap Vest also includes padded blaze shoulder straps while the Lite Vest features blaze shoulder overlays.
A zippered front, a transmitter pocket with an antenna loop and REACTAR™ pad pockets behind each quilted shoulder patch complete the vest's extensive feature list.
And don't forget your upland hunting pants made with sturdy fabric to deflect thorns and briars. You can get them with strong, convenient and easy to reach pockets that will add to your ability to conveniently carry extra gear.
You Won't Want To Be Distracted By The Cold
Browning's Bird’n Lite jackets are the kind of upland hunting clothing that have all the great features included in the Lite and Strap Vests plus adjustable elastic arm cuffs and a zip-through collar to seal in warmth during cold weather.
It is a good idea to get both a vest and a jacket so you will be prepared for changing weather conditions.
In warm weather the vest will be adequate for all of your extra upland hunting gear and when cold weather comes you can double your gear capacity while getting warm wearing both the coat and vest.
Toughness And Durability Really Count For Upland Hunting Gear
Upland hunting clothing such as Orvis Briar Pants and Cabela's Classic II Shooting Shirts are specifically designed for the rough conditions you encounter when bird hunting.
Rugged and practical tough cotton canvas Hawthorne cloth is used to construct the pants, which is an eight ounce canvas material that protects you from heavy briars.
The pant facing is washable dry-wax-impregnated poplin which is also water resistant and briar-resistant.
A gusseted crotch makes it easier to climb over fences and other obstacles without stressing the pant seams.
The Classic II Shooting Shirts are 100 percent cotton, have quilted shooting patches, a large chest pocket with a button flapped closure and they have adjustable two-button cuffs.
These shooting shirts come in Right Handed Regular or Tall and Left Handed Regular or Tall. Orvis and Cabela's both also sell upland hunting jackets, which during foul and inclement weather might turn out to be your very best upland hunting clothes.
Don't Forget Accessories Like Gloves, Shooting Glasses And Quality Hunting Boots
You'll find that shooting gloves, upland bird vests, leather tab suspenders, blaze packer hats, baseball caps, hunting boots, heated insoles and shooting glasses which are often colored to help vision during wide-ranging weather conditions are all valuable companions when you're afield.
Upland hunting gear for guns and shooting aids includes leather recoil sleeves and pads, shotgun holsters, leather shell bags, shotgun slings, clip-on shell holders, break down cases and kit bags.
Other important upland hunting gear like spotting scopes, binoculars and stainless game shears are available to round out your upland hunting gear collection.
