First Look: Thiessens V1 Whitetail Hunting Apparel

posted on October 2, 2019

Thiessens has released a line of gear and clothing angled toward deer hunters. Headlining this new product family is the Thiessens V1 Whitetail lineup, which features Realtree Edge camouflage printed across a wide variety of fabrics designed to keep water out and heat in (or out, depending on precisely which seasonal offering it belongs to).

(Pictured left to right) Lightweight Neck Gaiter; Lightweight Short-Sleeve Shirt; Lightweight Pants; Lightweight Button-Up Shirt.

Lightweight Series Garments
Clothing in the Lightweight Series ranges from long- and short-sleeve shirts, to pants, button-ups, gloves and more. All items feature moisture-wicking, anti-odor material and articulated construction for unimpeded movement. MSRP: $11.99-$59.99.

Midweight Series Garments
Moving more into outerwear territory, the Midweight Series similarly boasts pants and gloves, but also includes jackets, vests and other such chill-reducing offerings to the mix. Moisture control becomes more substantial, with a water-resistant treatment applied to the outer shell of Midweight Series clothing, as well as Wind Defense windproofing. Linings are fleece, though with the same moisture-wicking and odor-blocking technology found in the Lightweight series. MSRP: $14.99-$79.99.

Heavyweight Series Garments
With the Heavyweight Series, Thiessens steps squarely into cold-weather gear, with parkas (including the 3-N-1 Parka), insulated bibs and insulated pants, among other things. In addition to the basic features of the Mid- and Lightweight Series, Heavyweight clothing features Thinsulate, T-Dry and Wind Defense technologies, an ample amount of pockets (on applicable items) and slick extremity linings for easy removal of clothing. MSRP: $39.99-$199.99.

(Pictured left to right) Packable Rainwear Jacket; Rainwear Pants.

Rainwear Series Garments
Items in Thiessen's dedicated wet-weather series are built around one thing and one thing only—keeping out water. Shells are 100 percent waterproof and windproof, with T-Dry waterproofing that still manages to retain breathability. Hooded items boast adjustable hoods, hems are shock-cord adjustable and construction puts an emphasis on maintaining silent movement. A stuff sack is included with all Rainwear gear to keep the wet away from dry materials in your pack. MSRP: $89.99-$109.99.
