Kryptek's Early Season Gear Guide

We are almost there. 

Draw results are out, hunts have been planned, and the season is off. Whether you are hunting the high-country or headed for the flat land deserts, you will need to stay light, breathable, and prepared for the changing weather patterns that come along with early season hunting. From desert thunderstorms to the occasional high-country snowstorm, make sure you’re geared up for success.

EARLY SEASON ANTELOPE

For many, the season kicks off with some early season antelope. Whether you are sitting in a blind, or spot and stalk hunting, you will want to stay light and breathable, but always prepared for those abrupt summer thunderstorms to roll in. Check out what team Kryptek recommends for your upcoming pronghorn hunt.

With the cool mornings and hot evenings of September, layering becomes extremely important so you can stay comfortable and keep your focus on the hunt. Check out what team Kryptek recommends you take this September.
