Chêne Gear, known for their premium waterfowl waders, has launched a line of new performance based hunting apparel in time for the 2022-2023 Arkansas duck season. The products include two jackets, the Over and Under ($300) and the Hydro-Lok Shell ($380). The Over and Under is designed to be worn under waders while the Hydro-Lok is a 3-layer nylon rain jacket that is breathable.
Also included in the release is the Scout Vest ($200), Merino Wool top ($100) and bottom ($100) base layers as well as Chêne’s layering system, the Sixty Series ($160). The Sixty Series is mid-weight fleece pullover with hooded and non-hooded versions.
Each product is engineered with premium materials and construction methods and is protected by Sciessent’s Agion® anti-microbial technology. Like Chêne’s wader, all of the new products will be backed by their limited lifetime warranty and in-house repair program to ensures purchasers the highest-quality work and prompt returns.
All of the new products can be found on chenegear.com although some will not be available until August. But who needs to be running around in this kind of gear with the brutal Arkansas summer underway?
CHIPPING IN FOR CONSERVATION
Chêne has committed to including a Federal Duck Stamp with every wader sold in 2022. Each waterfowler is required to purchase a Federal Duck Stamp each season and dollars raised through sales go towards habitat conservation projects and other initiatives benefiting waterfowl. Chene will throw in a federal duck stamp within the wader packaging upon shipment.
“Quality habitat is the foundation to a strong waterfowl population, and the duck stamp program has a stellar record of protecting the wetlands that are vital to not just ducks and geese, but countless other species of wildlife,” says Jeff Jones, Chêne’s chief product officer. “We want thanks our customers, as well as support this program’s important work, by giving a portion of every wader sold back to the birds we’ve built our lives around pursuing. We encourage customers to pay it forward by purchasing an additional stamp for a new hunter, youth hunter, or even a friend or relative who doesn’t hunt but appreciates wildlife and wild places.”
