The nights are cold and the days are hot in Spring. Harsh sun, strong wind and heavy rain are all prominent this time of year as well. That means regular clothing changes, therefore an efficient layering system is crucial. You'll need to carry light-weight and packable layers, and be prepared to use them all. But it's completely worth it, animals will do anything for a taste of that fresh growth out in the open riverbeds and new slips. So gear up and go hook in.
Hunters Element was born and bred in the harsh mountains of New Zealand. As hunters, Kiwi's demand more from their gear than any other place on earth, so it's here that we develop and stress test our gear to breaking point. We prize these pristine environments and want to see them kept this way for generations to come. That's why Hunters Element is so obsessed with sustainability. From making over 90% of our technical hunting gear out of recycled plastics, packaging all our products in paper and cardboard, and ditching dodgy chemicals, we're dead set on keeping the hills clean for the next lot.
