The MOTHERâ„¢ of all hunting vests talks turkey
MOTHERâ„¢ Brings Technical Packs to Turkey Hunters
Building on the success of its existing line, which brought comfort and functionality to Upland Hunters, MOTHERâ„¢ is now poised to enter the Turkey Hunting market with its line of packs designed for Turkey Hunters, but which should find broad appeal to anyone in a still hunting situation.
MOTHER’sâ„¢ Still Hunting Light and Day Packs combine the technical features of mountaineering packs, such as suspension systems that distributed load weight to the hips and hydration compatibility, with the functionality of vests. Marty Grabijas, MOTHER’sâ„¢ founder, noted that, â€œWe started with a clean slate and asked ourselves how we execute a more functional pack for still hunting situations. We looked beyond the hunting market and into our personal hunting experiences as well as the tactical market for design cues on our Still Hunting line. There is nothing extraneous. Everything is pure function. Fabrics and hardware are consistent with those found on the best climbing packs. MOTHER’sâ„¢ Flip Magnet Pocket Closures enable instant, silent access; storage is ample, simple and extremely easy to access; and our Slip Seatâ„¢ deploys with a tug and stows with a pull â€“ all while the hunter is wearing the pack.â€
MOTHERâ„¢ will debut two Turkey specific models from its new Still Hunting Line at the SHOT Show â€“ the Still Hunting Light (MSRP $129.00) and the Still Hunting Day Pack (MSRP $159.00). Both will be available for shipment March 20th from Gig Harbor, Washington.
MOTHER’sâ„¢ founder, Marty Grabijas, discovered over 30 years ago that hunting vests are pretty much useless for their intended purpose. As early as the 1960’s folks like Dick Kelty and Wayne Gregory had figured out how to carry a load in the field, yet hunters have suffered through same tired stuff / different year. MOTHERâ„¢ â€“ as in Necessity is the MOTHERâ„¢ of Invention â€“ was born out of personal frustration and now provides performance based equipment to hunters who seek the ultimate in technical functionality.
