Every now and then, a new company comes to the forefront of the market it has entered. Kryptek is one such company. The idea for Kryptek was born on the battlefield. Kryptek provides combat- proven features and designs in ultra-high-performance technical and tactical outdoor adventure apparel. Kryptek products are continuously tested and proven in austere combat environments and in extreme hunting conditions. Constant improvement and feedback are implemented into future designs with the end-goal of providing their products to outdoor adventurers who demand the utmost in quality and overall performance in their gear.
Kryptek has a complete line of outdoor hunting gear, which comes in a variety of fabrics and comfort levels. They have four lines of clothing to handle anything Mother Nature will throw at you. It comes in mountain mimicry camouflage and blends into almost any environment.
For early season warm weather hunts, Kryptek has the Alaios Armor pants and shirt. The Alaios Armor quarter zip shirt is made from moisture-wicking fabric designed to keep you cool and comfortable on the hunt. The sleeves are made from an extra tough polyester fabric. The Velcro wrist straps and sleeve pockets make this one awesome shirt. The pants are equally as impressive. My favorite feature is the knee pad pockets, as most hunting garments do not feature them. With 12 pockets throughout the pants, there is plenty of room for gear storage. Made from 100% polyester moisture-wicking material, the pants help keep you dry and comfortable. With generous inseams, you are guaranteed to keep debris out of your boots. When the weather turns a little colder, just add the Vidar Scout Softshell Vest to provide your core with the warmth it needs.
When Winter greets you with frost on the ground, it is time to turn to their Cadog Shield jacket and pants. The softshell jacket will keep you warm and dry when the wind begins to blow and the snow begins to fall. The durable fleece fabric will keep you warm when you need it to. The pit zippers allow for ventilation when needed. Strategically placed pockets on the chest and sleeves keep gear close at hand. The pants are made out of the same high quality material. They feature adjustable ankle straps, reinforced knees, plenty of storage pockets, and a removable rugged suspender system with wide belt loops. This is a great mid to late season jacket and pants combination, ideal for spot and stalk, glassing the countryside, and long sits in a treestand. For the ultimate in warmth, look no further than the Pridbor Defender insulated Jacket. It is designed for the harshest conditions. The interior of the jacket is lined with fleece for comfort, warmth, and function.
When the forecast calls for rain, the Koldo Blockade jacket and pants set is part of a three-ply waterproof system that keeps the elements out and warmth in. It is made of a rugged laminated fabric that is reinforced and welded at the knees and elbows to stop moisture seepage and prevent abrasions. The jacket features pit zips, a lined chin guard, inside zip pockets, adjustable arm cuffs, and a helmet-compatible hood. The pants feature rugged stitching, suspender tabs, reinforced kick patches and seat guard, and thigh zippers for temperature regulation.
This is one of the best hunting systems I have ever come across. Its products are competitively priced and won't break the bank. Kryptek makes a complete line of hunting apparel that will keep you comfortable throughout your entire hunting season. It is available at Cabelas or from the Kryptek.com website. Kryptek gets my five out of five arrow rating.
