Mystery Ranch
Metcalf Pack

CAPACITY: 4,300 cubic inches
PRICE: $525
COLORS: Coyote, Foliage, MultiCam, Dissolve Bare
Mystery Ranch cut its teeth making hard-use packs for the U.S. military, so it’s no surprise it also makes some kick-ass hunting packs. The new Metcalf has the capacity of a minivan, the utility of a pickup, and the comfortable ride of a family sedan. With 3,700 cubes in the body and another 600 in the detachable lid, there’s room to ruck a week’s worth of gear to camp. Use the detachable lid as a day pack, or ditch it and cinch down the main pack for a smaller load. When it comes time to field dress and pack out, the pack’s Overload Shelf holds your game bag between the frame and pack body, keeping the load centered and your pack contents clean. Other features include a top-loading shroud plus full-length side-zip for easy access, compression straps for carrying a rifle or bow, and extra pockets for smaller items. It’s made of light-yet-durable 500D Cordura.

Muck Boot Company
Woody Arctic Ice

RATING: -60 degrees F
PRICE: $200
It’s warm out now; the frozen toes of last year’s November rifle season seem so distant that the memories could almost be described as wistful. Don’t spend another cold-toed season in the stand wishing you had one more pair of dry socks. Muck Boot’s new Woody Arctic Ice boot starts with the company’s solid foundation of uncompromising waterproofness and features 8mm foam walls, up from 5mm in the standard Woody boot, with a fleece lining and adds more thermal foam underfoot. Muck says the boot is rated for -60 degrees F, but we’re not willing to test that claim. The molded outsole is designed to grip wet or dry ice and the Mossy Oak Country camo is bound to be a hit with your new, four-legged forest friends.

Calvin Elite Custom Remington Model 700 Trigger

PULL WEIGHT RANGE: 8 ounces to 2.5 pounds
PRICE: $260
It’s just a few years old, but Timney’s Calvin Elite trigger has quickly become a popular drop-in replacement for the Remington 700 series rifle. Not resting on its success, Timney just released a new version of the trigger with a customizable shoe. The guts are the same as the standard Calvin Elite, but the new Custom version lets you choose between the included curved, flat, heeled, and knurled shoes and also lets you adjust the length of the trigger pull, cast, and height with the turn of a couple screws. As with the standard Calvin, its wear parts are made from A2 tool steel, and the sear surfaces and sear engagement, over-travel, and pull weight are all adjustable to your liking.

Micro S-1


FITS: Mossberg 500/835/9200 and Remington 1100/1187/870 at press time
PRICE: $804
Eff-Your-Bead-Sight, says Aimpoint with the introduction of its Micro S-1 red-dot sight. It’s a venerable Micro H-2 sight with a 6 MOA dot and a new base designed to sit as low as possible atop a shotgun, mounting directly to the vent rib. Aimpoint tells us it’ll have four interchangeable baseplates to fit the most popular shotguns, but at press time, it’s only listing Mossberg 500/835/9200 and Remington 1100/1187/870 compatibility. We can already imagine the tailgate ribbing over the use of a red-dot on a shotgun, but whether you’re in for wing, water, game, or clay, the enhanced field of view and sighting confirmation that comes with a red-dot is worth checking out.
