ALPS OutdoorZ Partners with Delta Waterfowl, Announces New Layout Blind and Pack

posted on May 13, 2016

Alps OutdoorZ and Delta Waterfowl have partnered to produce a new line of co-sponsored waterfowl hunting gear, beginning with the new Zero Gravity Layout Blind and Water-Shield Pack. Both products will be available for the 2016 waterfowl seasons, and are the headliners for an entire line of gear that will soon be available.

"We were sure to cover the spectrum of gear that would be considered essential for a waterfowl hunter's arsenal with the initial launch of the line," said Frank Hemmer, ALPS marketing manager. "At the same time, we had to make sure we had items that would stand out as new and exciting to differentiate this new line from the competition. We feel that goal was reached with the Zero-Gravity Layout Blind and Water-Shield Pack."

The patent pending Zero Gravy Layout Blind is designed to be the most comfortable and easiest to assemble layout on the market. It requires no assembly and comes packed with features. A zero-gravity chair design keeps the hunter off the ground, while maintaining a low profile. The blind's fabric flares out on all sides to help keep it concealed, and allows for the storage of bags or other accessories. Backpack carry straps make it easy to transport. The blind doesn't have a floor, which is meant to help make clean up easier.

The Water-Shield Pack, meanwhile, does exactly what you might think. Constructed using TPU waterproof welded seams and YKK aqua guard zippers, it's designed to keep your most important gear dry. Its construction is so water-repellent that it can be set down in standing water. It features a clear front map/cell phone pocket can be accessed from outside of the pack, a front organizational pocket and a compression straps for adding additional gear. The top carry handle has a side release buckle which can hang from a tree or attach to other gear.
