Próis® Reversible Sherpa Vest™
The new Reversible Sherpa Vest™ from Próis® Hunting Apparel is engineered with an innovative mix of advanced materials and design features to keep the serious female hunter both safe and comfortable on any hunt, in any season.
This versatile new vest will be your favorite piece of cold-weather gear as its reversible feature allows it to pull double duty and provide the wearer with the option to display either side. If you’re looking to seamlessly blend in with your surroundings, its high-quality deep sherpa fleece in Realtree AP HD® or Advantage Max-1 HD® camo is the ideal side to wear.
Or, if your hunt requires additional visibility and safety, reverse the vest to reveal its unique Polartec 200 microfleece side in blaze orange.
This cozy vest not only provides a perfect fit for the female form, it also utilizes the latest technology for ultimate performance — providing the warmth and insulation needed when the weather turns against you. Closing in all this warmth is a heavyweight reversible zipper, while deep-cut hand pockets provide an ideal compartment for warming up chilly hands or packing lightweight gear.
Plus, scaring off wary game every time you raise your firearm is a worry of the past — this silent vest provides ease of movement while keeping your position a secret.
This perfect layering piece can be worn over a Próis Ultra Long or Short Sleeve shirt or layered underneath any Próis jacket. And, should an unexpected chill roll in, scapular drop pockets are a perfect home for air-activated warmers — strategically placed across the shoulder blades to quickly warm the entire body.
The vest even comes complete with a large Heat Factory® Body Warmer that will easily provide wearers with more than 20 hours of generated heat.
The Próis Sherpa Vest is available in sizes XS through XL and, as all Próis gear, it’s proudly manufactured in the U.S.A.

Hoppe’s Commemorative Tins
More than 100 years in the gun-care business have taught Hoppe's a thing or two about what makes a good cleaning kit, and that is precisely why hunters, shooters and those in search of the perfect gift continually turn to Hoppe's cleaning kits. Hoppe’s kits are convenient and extremely well thought-out.
The Hoppe's No. 9 Kit comes in a Commemorative Tin and includes everything firearms owners need to clean their favorite guns. The scene on the front of the tin depicts a vintage canoe hunting camp.
