Teton Tested: Gamehide’s Lost Camo Clothing


WY Elk 13 328The Wyoming mountains made the perfect test track for a variety of great gear, including Gamehide’s Lost Camo HyperHide jacket and pants. The week began with pouring rain, then settled to hail, and finally turned fair for the final days of the hunt. Although not waterproof, my Game Hide duds were water-resistant, handling 95% of outdoor conditions. Hunters want performance in gear, and the striking good looks and attention to detail makes this gear standout in a crowd (but not in the woods). You won’t find any sticks or leaves in the pattern, yet deer and elk don’t use those either. If you’ve never tried this pattern affiliated with Mathews Archery, check out these features…

WY Elk 13 315The totally silent bonded HyperHide fleece will not spook game. The inside of the jacket is made of a soft, warm, high-pile fleece for extreme comfort. The patented Freedom Sleeve lets you draw your bow or climb into your stand without restriction or the annoying “lift” you get from non-Freedom Sleeve garments. The Grid Lock Jacket has clean, non-bulky pocket designs on the vertical chest pockets and side handwarmer pockets. Low-profile lock down zipper tangs on the pockets eliminate noise while staying clear of your bowstring. The zippered slot on the back of the jacket is one of the Grid Lock’s best features. The slot allows you to run your safety harness through the zipper, keeping it off your neck for all day comfort. A drawcord waist allows for a custom fit while the inner wrist cuffs seal out the cold. Check it out at gamehide.com.
