BORN & RAISED OUTDOORS
Fame and the Outdoor Industry typically never blend well but the Born & Raised Outdoors crew are the black sheep. You're never going to meet a more hard working, humble group of guys than Kody Kellom and the rest of the team. They're normal guys like the rest of us that just put in the extra effort on Public Lands and work together as a whole to not only bring the hunt to view but also focus on the meaning, the reason and how to commit yourselves to getting ahead of the rest. We're stoked to be able to compile each member's Gear List into a single location so as they talk or film gear, you'll have a home for picking up the gear you want. Be sure to check them out and give them a follow on all social media platforms to experience their adventures both on and off the mountain. Check out their Website for Logowear, Videos, Blog and more, and tune into their YouTube Channel for the Land of the Free Project which consists of 50 videos across 5 states covering their 2017 bow hunts!

Outdoor Life: Do You Really Need a Water Filter for Backpacking and Mountain Hunting?
While DEET products may be more familiar by name and their chemical smell, sprays with 20 percent picaridin, like Sawyer Products, offer comparable protection without the harsh odor and oily feeling on your skin.
The Sawyer Squeeze was (by far) the most common Pacific Crest Trail water filter this year – for the fifth year in a row. It’s a $39, 3 oz / 85 g hollow fiber filter that rids your drinking water of protozoa and bacteria (and floaties). It can be used with Sawyer bags (included with the filter) or with compatible water bottles (Smartwater is the bottle of choice for many hikers).
SAWYER MINI WATER FILTER, $22 This has been my water filter of choice for years now. The bags can be iffy — I have had a few break – so carry a couple. However, the filter itself is reliable, light and inexpensive. -Logan
