Must-Have Youth Gear for 2016

posted on May 22, 2016
Huntworth Performance Fleece Youth Hunting Glove & Beanie Hat
Huntworth is known for quality hats and gloves, and its youth line is no exception. This cold-weather glove is lined with warm performance stretch fleece and sports a silicon-printed palm for grip. The beanie is made from the same performance stretch fleece with a comfortable knit lining. The Oak Tree EVO camo on both garments is treated with a durable water-repellant finish. MSRP: glove $34.99, hat $11.97.

Walls Youth Hunting Insulated Jacket and Bibs
The worst part about outfitting a growing kid in camo is having to do it again the following year. Walls solves that problem with its complete line of youth hunting clothing. Each piece is designed with the Walls “Kidz Grow System,” which allows you to extend the hemlines on pant legs and sleeves, getting at least one more year from your kid’s clothing. Available in Mossy Oak’s newest pattern, Break-Up Country. MSRP: jacket $43.99, bib $45.99.

Alps Little Bear Pack
Don’t let the name fool you: While this little pack can be adjusted to fit smaller frames, we guarantee you’ll want to use it when “light loads” are the name of the game. Until then, let your kid feel like she’s carrying her weight. Features include four pockets, large 500-cubic-inch main compartment, padded waist belt, removable comfortable shoulder harness, and Realtree Xtra camo. Compatible with Alps accessories like the turkey call pocket and binocular pocket. MSRP: $59.99.

Barnett Vortex Youth Bow
Kids want to be just like their parents, so when little Jimmy shows an interest in bowhunting, it can be both flattering and expensive. When that time comes, set him up with a bow that can grow with him. The Vortex’s draw length adjusts from 21-27 inches, and draw weight is adjustable from a bale-shootin’ 19 pounds to a deer-dropping 45 pounds. Comes with everything a youngster needs to get started: a sight, three fletched arrows, quiver and field points. MSRP: $159.99.

Rocky Big Kid R.A.M. Waterproof Insulated Boots
The only thing that separates these boots from yours is their size, and we’re sure if that wasn’t an issue, you’d be borrowing them from time to time. Constructed with the same rugged dependability as all Rocky boots, these little kickers sport 800 grams of insulation, waterproof protection covering the entire boot, abrasion-resistant 900-denier nylon uppers and durable rubber outsoles. Available in Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity. MSRP: $79.99.
