I received the insoles in December and was super excited to try them out on some cold hunts. The first time I took them out it was 34 degrees. I wore a pair or thermal socks and used the insoles and my feet stayed plenty warm. The next two occasions I used them was in 15 degree or lower temps. I was wearing 400-gram boots and somewhat thin socks as recommended in the instructions. My feet froze. I don't believe these are made for temperatures much below freezing unless you have heavy boots.  The insoles were built well and held up...

Luckily I was able to get this new knife in time for my spring turkey hunting trip, I was able to dress out two birds quickly due to the extremely shard blade. I know dressing out two turkeys shouldn't dull a blade, but many knives would be dulled after cutting into just one bird. This wasn't the case with this knife; it's just as sharp now as it was out of the box. The only negative I found was that the sheath had Velcro on it. For a hunting knife I am not a fan of a sheath with Velcro, too...

  My packs have followed me everywhere from hiking the Grand Canyon to canoeing the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. I seem to always have that little stitched leather moose logo near me in tough situations and it has never failed me. I started with a small Scout pack by Duluth Pack and increased in size as time has gone by.About three years ago before heading to the BWCAW, I decided that I would upgrade from my Kelty pack and purchased a #3 Cruiser Combo pack. It has held up and surpassed my expectations! The craftsmanship is unmatched! I have gone...

Coming from a long time bowhunter, "over four decades".  I've seen alot of changes in archery equipment, for the better! One item that I really have seen change in all kinds of configurations is the bow sight. Everthing from single-pin to three to six pin sights! Everyone seems to think theirs is the way to go! There are a lot of good sights out there and picking one would be a personal preference. One thing I've learned is to try to keep things simple. That is why I like HHA products. Shooting the one-pin sight gives me the simplicity on "picking the spot".  Not being confused...
