FORLOH Hunting Apparel Lead

It’s not often that a new clothing brand makes a splash during the spring convention season, so I’m super excited to tell you about FORLOH (For Love of Hunting). Made entirely in the USA, this new brand is on fire with innovation and is winning awards hand over fist. I’ve personally had the pleasure of wearing one of their down vests during hunting adventures from Montana to Arizona to Africa, and have been impressed at every turn. While discussing quality and design of the clothing, FORLOH’s founder and owner expressed, “We will cut no corners.”

Hunters Trying On FORLOH Camo Jackets

I spent several hours at their booth at the 2022 SCI Show trying on clothing, examining design features and learning about the technology incorporated into FORLOH clothing. I was blown away by their innovation. It’s thoroughly out of the realm of my vocabulary, so I’ve just copied some specifications here to whet your appetite. And this is just a sample of what FORLOH has to offer: technical clothing, hunting apparel, fishing clothing, warm and cold weather collections, swimwear and more. They currently offer base layers, standard layers, down layers and rain gear in a myriad of different weights, materials, and color and camo patterns. Women and children’s gear is available too. There is way too much cool stuff going on to detail here, so you should hop on the FORLOH website and check out all the details. I’m willing to bet that you will be impressed. Price point on FORLOH clothing is similar to other top-end brands, which blows me away considering it is all made in the U.S.
