Hunting turkeys at 8500ft in the Uintah’s of Utah has challenges in itself. Throw in below freezing temps in the morning and warm temps in the afternoon, and you better have a clothing system that allows you to layer and stay comfortable. WIth Core4 I get just that. I know I will be comfortable to sit as long as it takes for that longbeard to fly off the roost and come in to my setup. When this bird skirted my setup I was able to put a stalk on him, and thanks to my Mountain Mimicry pattern he didn’t know I was there until it was to late. Thanks for bringing your customers a great product that we can count on!
A good buddy of mine got his Core4Element gear setup last month and was lucky enough to get on a last-minute cancellation brown bear hunt in Alaska last week. With just a couple hours to pack his backpack and make it to the airport, he grabbed his Core4 gear, his camera, and his rifle and took the long flight north! This May in Alaska was an interesting one, as more than 3 feet of snow fell down on the beach and made for some cold mornings. Through the wind, sea spray, cold temperatures, and sunny stalks on the beach; his gear held up and aided him in his harvest of a monarch bear. Estimated to be over 20 years old, Larry’s bear has a skull of 27″, perfectly long hair, amazing claws, and just a couple teeth left in his mouth. Core4Element keeps you dry, as our faithful clients have tested, and keeps you out there so that you can harvest trophies all over the world. Congrats to Larry on a trophy brown bear! Starting spring 2013 out right.

If you have never been on a spot and stalk spring bear hunt, you are missing out. This last Friday my good buddy Travis and I embarked on a backpack bear hunting trip in Central Idaho. We hiked 4 miles in the backcountry in hopes of spotting a bruiser boar feeding on the open hillsides. The first evening proved fruitful as we spotted 6 bears, but most of which were too far for us to stalk with the fading light.
Spring is here, and with it, weather that changes at every turn. Sleet, snow, wind, and rain. Maybe a little sun, if you are lucky. With a core4element system, you can be ready for whatever nature throws at you. Whether it is turkey season or you are chasing bears, or even on a horn hunt. C4E has something for you, that fits, and is affordable.
I have a favorite Core 4 Element piece. It became obvious as I entered my closet the other day. Gearing up for an early morning training run up the mountain I noticed my wife did me the undeserved favor of doing my laundry. There they hung, six Merino 190 zip hoodies like super-hero tops waiting to get dirty with adventure. Excessive? Probably. But so are my early morning work -outs. Ten miles a day is my usual morning grind through the mountains. I wouldn’t miss those runs for the world. They are my morning coffee. They give me the energy I need to last till the kids go down that night.
DWR is the first line of defense.
Repellency is the ability of the fabric to “bead” water on the fabric surface.
80% repellency, after 20 home launderings, is the benchmark for Core4Element water repellency.
To be effective, the outer fabric needs to repel water while also enabling moisture vapor to pass through and escape.
Repellency should enhance comfort and “wearer satisfaction”. Read the rest of this post »
Working with the best material available Core4Element has created the pinnacle of gaiters. Combining soft, quiet, waterproof, 4 way stretch material to firm, durable, waterproof Cordura is the perfect combination for the perfect gaiter.
Core4Element has taken the finest 100% New Zealand merino wool and made the perfect top for your outdoor adventures. Merino wool is some of the finest fibers found in nature. Our New Zealand wool producers have perfected the process from growing, to sorting, to weaving, to produce the softest, most durable, most comfortable merino wool for against the skin.
Core4Element has innovated the Merino ¼ zip Hybrid by body mapping 190 gram merino wool in the naturally hotter areas of the body and 250 gram merino wool in the naturally cooler areas of the body. Our fit of the Merino Hybrid is for enhanced comfort and motion of the mountain hunter. Our fit follows the natural movement of the hunter for a better fit and greater comfort while at the same time helping maintain your temperature through body mapping the different weights of merino wool in strategic areas.
This is the first sample on our Wind River Glove. It is a stretch woven fabric on the back with a goat leather palm on the front.
It has already spent 5 days being tested back country skiing and got rave reviews. We are making a couple tweaks to the cuff and testing another fabric to make sure we bring you the very best in performance. Just a part of what we do.
- Highly Breathable
- Weather Resistant
Here is a photo from Kendall’s backcountry ski trip where he tested these prototypes over 4 days of skiing, climbing and wood cutting. They held up well with no real wear and tear.
