Ariat International, known for its equestrian performance footwear, is now offering outdoorsmen the versatile Conquest Rubber Buckaroo with the ease of a slip-on and the performance of a hunting boot with laces.

Base layer air vents regulate temperature to keep feet cool and comfortable while a shock-absorbing EVA midsole and Duratread outsole with non-tracking, tread design make the Buckaroo good on any outdoor terrain.
Conquest Buckaroo is constructed with 1.5 mm Neoprene and the Buckaroo Insulated model has 3.5 mm Neoprene. Both styles feature a western-inspired design with a scalloped topline and pull holes with a roomy, wide-square toe. It comes in black or camo.

Acclaimed Austrian camouflage clothing maker X JAGD is now offering a full line for U.S. men and women featuring high tech materials and demorphing patterns, sold through Steyr Arms. It includes parkas, jackets, pants, long- and short-sleeve shirts, base layers, socks, headgear, scarves and gaiters.
The team at X JAGD has taken camouflage to a new level by creating patterns that cancel out laws of perception and provide hunters with a surface structure that optically dissolves the hunter into the environment.
Hunters can disappear completely because the factors of time and motion have been added to the existing equation of form, color, and shape to create the demorphing patterns. Patterns include Woodland, Mountain, Savanna, Tundra and Flash.
The line incorporates advanced materials for heat management, anti-piling and moisture wicking.
