Browning Technical Clothing 2009

Release Date: 2/28/2009

Specialized Clothing for Comfort and Protection.

Don’t be caught during any outdoor hunting, fishing or hiking trip without the proper protection and features that Browning Outdoor Clothing can provide. When you’re wearing the right gear, you’ll be comfortable in the most severe conditions and have your shells, knife, etc., ready at your fingertips. If Mother Nature decides to kick up a blizzard or deliver a downpour, you’ll be prepared with the most innovative, feature-packed Browning Apparel ever.

Maintaining mobility and comfort when drawing your bow, shouldering your rifle, climbing over rocks, up a tree or through brush is of the utmost importance. The Browning Transitions Series apparel won the Field and Stream Best Of The Best award in the clothing category for 2008.

The Browning Transitions will appeal to those who go to extremes to track down and bag their game. The Transitions Series was created out of necessity with three primary objectives: (1) to do more with less by eliminating weight and bulk while improving performance. (2) To be backpack friendly by placing pockets where they can be easily accessed when wearing a pack. (3) To revitalize the time-proven concept of layering. In the Transitions Series, Browning addresses the three major components of a layering system, namely the Base Layer or NTS (Next To Skin), the Middle Layer, referred to as the Insulation layer, and Outer Layer or Protection layer. Garments for each category have been created using the latest fabrics and design technologies that take layering to the next level. Note that the Transition Series of Browning Clothing are in two categories: A Transitions Series complete for Big Game and a Transition Series exclusively for Waterfowl. You may look up each category here by clicking on the titles to the left.

AddHeat™ is the very latest in a heating system that says goodbye to the days of heavy battery packs, clumsy controllers and short battery life. Heated clothing technology finally comes of age for hunters with Browning’s new AddHeat System. At the core (forgive the pun) of the new AddHeat system is the heating element located in the upper back of a compatible garment, right where it can effectively maintain core body temperature. In addition to the body, several popular Browning jackets and parkas feature heating elements in the pockets to distribute heat and provide warmth for hands and fingers. The Browning AddHeat system is comprised of the flexible, lightweight, washable heating element found in the garment and the AddHeat Power Pack. The Power Pack includes a compact, rechargeable Li-ion battery that provides up to 5.5 hours of continuous body warming heat, a simple to use “intelligent” Micro-CPU controller and 110-220 VAC charger. The Power Pack is not included with AddHeat garments and must be purchased separately. This allows the consumer to purchase a single Power Pack to use with the garment(s) of their choice.

(Don’t forget the new Browning Catalog for 2009. It’s a keeper, and has all the facts, figures and photos on all Browning products.)

Years of testing and design have perfected Quiet-Plus™ outerwear.

Get the Quiet-Plus™ in a Jacket or pant in Mossy Oak® New Break-Up® camo.

When you combine the comfort of fleece with the natural insulation qualities of wool you get Browning’s Highlands Wool, the most technologically advanced wool on the market.

In addition to the remarkable comfort, the shirt and pant feature OdorSmart anti-microbial technology, providing scent control on a wool product.

The Browning Wasatch Collection represents core hunting clothing. These shirts and pants are cut from a comfortable 7-ounce cotton/polyester twill fabric, and feature button closed pockets, a loose cut for freedom of movement and durable fabric that breathes freely. A REACTAR Pad pocket is also built in so you can insert the Browning REACTAR pad to help soften recoil during long days shooting afield. The Wasatch Series comes in all four major Mossy Oak® camo patterns: New Break-Up®, Brush®, Duck Blind® and Treestand®. In addition to the comfort and functionality of the Wasatch Series, it also represents one of the best retail values in the industry. Any part of this versatile Wasatch Line will work in well with any hunting situation.

Warm weather hunting requires lightweight clothing. Check out the Browning Tri-Vent shirts. Cut from a lightweight cotton sheeting fabric, the Tri-Vent shirts also feature a mesh-lined back with three vents that allow for greater air circulation.

In addition to clothing that you must have to keep you comfortable when hunting big game or waterfowl, Browning’s top-of-the-line Upland Series of Shooting Clothing begins with lightweight, attractive and versatile jackets, gloves, pack vests and shirts.

No bird represents the upland experience better than the ring-necked pheasant, and that’s why Browning is proud to partner up with Pheasants Forever, the leading conservation organization for upland game birds. The Pheasants Forever Series incorporates every needful piece of upland clothing. From Jackets, Vests and Bibs, to Pants, Chaps and Strap Vests, this upland program features the traditional look of cotton canvas with distinct advancements for improved performance.

A durable water-repellent treatment helps shed light rain, and an abrasion-resistant overlay helps protect your legs from the brush and briars. Large shell pockets feature the Pocket Expander System that allows you to have exposed shells at the ready, or tuck them away in the pocket. Bloodproof game bags are easy to clean out, hold a day’s limit of birds, and the front-load pockets on the Jacket and Vest make it convenient to load your birds. REACTAR pad pockets, and zip off sleeves continue to add features to this upland line.

Look up the new Upland Quarter-Zip Sweater. Here is a warm, 100% wool knit, available with Windutter™ windproof and water-resistant laminate. It has a cotton twill shoulder and sleeve overlay, rib knit cuffs and a stand up collar. You can get it with or without the Pheasants Forever embroidery. For a traditional upland program, nothing is better than the Browning Pheasants Forever line.

Keeping comfortable on waterfowl hunts is always a challenge, particularly when you shed your heavy outer parka on warm days. The solution is Browning’s Warm Front™ Pullovers, Jacket, Shirt and Pant in Mossy Oak® Duck Blind®. Constructed of a highly breathable, water-resistant polyester fabric, these pullovers protect you from getting wet when your dog shakes off in the blind, while picking up decoys and even in a light rain. They are available in either an unlined version for warmer days, or a fleece-lined version for colder weather. In addition to the pullovers, this same great fabric is used in the Wader Pants. These great wader pants keep you dry in waders, are fleece-lined to keep you warm, and feature a special cuff that tapers at the ankle and utilizes foot stirrups for use in waders, or expands to a full-size cuff when worn with boots. No matter the waterfowl hunt, the Warm Front series fits the bill and keeps you dry.

Sport Shooting Apparel doesn’t have to be dull or boring or even camouflaged. Have a look at the Upland Shirts. One is a new quarter zip sweatshirt that will look good at the mall or the game, and the new Upland Hooded sweatshirt fits right in at work or on any outing.

Take a look at the Badger Creek Short Sleeve Poplin Shirts and the new cool Next to Skin moisture moving NTS Shooting Shirt. These shirts are at home on the range, the big game or the shopping mall. Solid colors of sand, brown, pine, black and olive or royal blue complement a pair of jeans. You’ll be comfortable in good-looking Browning gear wherever you go.

The new SXS Olive/Brown Vest has a double shooting patch, REACTAR™ pad pockets and a polyester microSuede® shooting patches. There is a hull bag in the back, notched shoulders for easy movement and a two-way zipper. The REACTAR Pad pocket gives you the option of adding the extra recoil protection of the REACTAR Pad. It has a fast button-tab waist and a Claymaster embroidered logo on the back yoke. A very nice vest that will put the clothing your shooting buddies wear to shame. Browning has over 15 fine shooting vests for men and women and several styles of shooting gloves for every condition. The Leather Tack Pro Gloves have a textured palm that gives you a firm grip on your firearm. These are made from water- and perspiration-resistant Pittards leather with elasticized knuckles.

The Browning 3D Buckmark Fadeout Caps complement the trim colors of the vests, picking up the brown, red, royal and lime colors. Everyone loves getting a Browning cap for birthdays, Christmas or just because you know your family and friends will appreciate Browning gear.

The rugged Washed MicroSuede Cap with the 3D Buckmark is one of Browning’s most popular styles.
