ArcticShield Brand Logo (ao_brands_arcticshield.jpg)

ArcticShield Technology - Locks Heat In. Keeps Cold Out.

In 1999, ArcticShield launched its first product - Boot Insulators - with tremendous results. Using a heat retention technology called RE-tain, ArcticShield now offers an entire line of apparel that keeps you warm from head to toe.

ArcticShield's exclusive RE-tain technology utilizes a multi-layered thermal barrier that captures and returns up to 97 percent of your body heat. This method is more effective than thick traditional insulations that only slow body heat loss. This cold-weather clothing is innovatively thin and unbelievably warm.

Various ArcticShield lines also include technologies for water proofing, wind proofing, odor control, moisture permeability and maximum comfort. Whatever your outdoor wear needs are, ArcticShield keeps you warm - and more!

X-System Technology - Odor Control Apparel

Hunters strenuously avoid odors that are not naturally found outdoors-especially body odor. X-System apparel debuted in 2004 at industry trade shows, and the clothing's anti-odor technology amazed attendees.

X-System's anti-odor nanotechnology is the result of more than 10 years of university research. Nano-silver fibers - which eliminate more than 250 types of microbes and the odors they cause - are integrated into each garments' fabric. So X-System products resist body odor throughout the life of the garment. It won't wash out and it never has to be regenerated or reactivated like other anti-odor technologies.

X-System clothing is also highly breathable and keeps your skin clean and healthy, due to reductions of bacteria growth. The U.S. Military men and women who wear X-System socks and thermals every day can vouch for its anti-odor abilities.
