Need something to keep you a little warmer around the homestead this winter? Check out a pair of new garments from ALPS OutdoorZ, designed to fend off the worse of the winter’s cold.
The Element Hoodie is available as a pullover or a full-zip hoodie. Its cotton/polyester blend and plush fleece interior lining make it suitable for all-day comfort in cool weather around the homestead, the camp, or in the field. The front kangaroo-style pocket keeps hands warm and features zippers to secure small items. The elastic ribbed sleeve cuffs and waistband prevent awkward shifting while ensuring warm air stays in and cool air stays out. The hood features three-piece construction for a comfortable, stays-in-place fit and comes with an integrated drawstring to seal out biting wind. The Element Hoodie is available in sizes small through XXXL. MSRP: $49.99-$59.99
A more technical garment suitable for hunting or everyday wear is the new ALPS OutdoorZ Shield Jacket. Constructed of a polyester shell with a thick Sherpa fleece interior, the Shield Jacket is offered as a quarter-zip pullover with a high neck collar to keep out the cold or as a full-zip jacket with an integrated, fleece-lined hood for maximum warmth. Both models include a zippered chest pocket that is ideal for securing a cell phone or other small items, zippered kangaroo pockets, and a ribbed waistband and cuffs. The Sherpa full-zip jacket also includes a windproof/waterproof membrane to better protect against the elements. Offered in Realtree Timber, the Shield Jackets come in sizes small through XXXL. MSRP: $79.99-$99.99

A humble homesteader based in an undisclosed location, Lars Drecker splits his time between tending his little slice of self-sustaining heaven, and bothering his neighbors to do his work for him. This is mainly the fault of a debilitating predilection for fishing, hunting, camping and all other things outdoors. When not engaged in any of the above activities, you can normally find him broken down on the side of the road, in some piece of junk he just “fixed-up.”
