GamePlan Gear™ has brought a brand new ground-breaking design for the bow hunting world in 2013. Known industry-wide for creating innovative and functional products with individual flare, GamePlan Gear™ announces its ‘Basecamp Travel System’.
Founder, Mike Arajakis, gave us the full rundown of the unique new series designed for today’s versatile archery hunter. Mike says, “In short, success starts at home. When serious hunters pull their clothes out of the dryer they want to be fully confident their time and effort pays off. We wanted to create a system that provides an organized scent-proof way of transporting gear.”
The new Basecamp™ Travel System is composed of one extra large duffle bag that contains a set of 4 smaller packing cubes. This unique design allows serious bow hunters to travel and transport their hunting clothes directly from the dryer to the stand while keeping every item scent free and airtight. Composed of PVC and reverse zipper technology, the rugged waterproof packing system ensures there is no cross contamination of scent between articles of clothing. Each of the 4 smaller cubes zip airtight, which will keep articles safe from contaminating odors. Bow hunters can pack and organize their base layers and clothing in individual cubes for convenient storage.
GamePlan Gear’s forward-thinking packing system also includes a built-in storage lid, which is perfect for packing odor controlling base layers. The system also has integrated a drop bottom compartment that stores gear such as knee high rubber boots and a safety harness. It also contains a rubber mat, providing a dry scent free surface for hunters to dress truck-side.
In addition to the new duffle pack, GamePlan has created a new Dry Line Series. Made for bow hunters on-the-go, the heavy duty packs are constructed to take a lot of abuse. Incorporating “welded-seam” technology instead of sewn-seams along with its roll-top closure ensures that all gear and equipment are protected from the elements. Coming in three designs: the 90 liter Shuttle duffle, the 80 liter Hippo bag and the 40 liter Amphibian backpack; these packs are the first of their kind.
Showcasing their new Bowcase line in 2013, GPG has stepped up the game in advanced hunting systems. Their new Pass Through 2 bow case fits up to a 39” axle to axle bow
while providing enough storage compartments to fit everything but the kitchen sink. This case carries more capacity than any other bow case on the market. Outside zippered mesh pockets create more cubic storage space. Large tricot lined pockets are built in for items such as rangefinders and bino’s. Interior zippered mesh pockets provide extra compartments for grunt tubes, bow hangers, releases and more. The fully customizable foam ‘block-and-strap’ internal bed allows hunters to position and strap in their bow. The new bowcase line also includes its Scrape Line 2 and its Sniper case, which both fit 40” axle-to-axle bows. GamePlan Gear teamed up with Shoot Like a Girl, Inc and created its first ever women’s bow case. GamePlan wants to proudly showcase their mission to empower women to participate in shooting sports with confidence. This sleek black case is embroidered with magenta accents and also fits up to a 40” bow.
Lastly, GamePlan Gear has kept its out-of-the-box thinking by creating its best backpack to date. The Full Rut Rattling System Backpack is designed to safely and quietly transports a pair of rattling antlers. Its 1,740 cubic inches includes a newly designed PVC-lined scent pocket. This backpack includes a Pack Strap to attach your quiver or gear in whatever position you choose. The innovative design includes a zippered backpanel storage, which allows you to access the bag from the back pad.
Once again, GamePlan Gear has produced another incredible year of advanced hunting systems. The quality, versatility and dependability of GamePlan’s gear is leading the industry in 2013 with their forward-thinking product design.
