Ep 468: Gear Dump with Trail Kreitzer

Warning: The following content may contain elements that are not suitable for some audiences. (Explicit / Mature content)


Welcome to the Rich Outdoors podcast. This week we wanted to feature some of the gear we are excited about, testing, and just how we think about what to bring from hunt to hunt. What better than the guy who tests gear constantly for the Gear Shop Trail Kreitzer. Trail and I have pretty similar opinions on gear but there are definitely differences. This is a great conversation around what things to spend money on and maybe what things could wait until next year. I tend to be more minimalist and embark the theory that if I probably won’t die without it, it doesn’t get put in the pack. We also spend some time walking through how we each prioritize what new gear to spend money on each year. Hopefully you get some ideas for last minute things in this episode. I will say the gear shop has an amazing selection of western hunting gear if you are in need of some items. There are some things I buy from goHUNT and some things I just order on Amazon, and I think both are great places to look for gear.

In my opinion Maven is the absolute best bang for your buck when it comes to buying quality glass for hunting. I have been running Maven’s for year and have been nothing but impressed with them. I love that Maven is small Wyoming based company, and love supporting what those guys are building. Maven is a direct to consumer optics company and because they take the middleman out of optics they can offer an absolutely amazing product at an insane value. If you are in the market for some new bino’s or a spotting scope I highly recommend considering Maven  Built.  I run the B.2 11×45 and on any hunt that I am glassing a lot I will have my b.5 18×56’s as well. Let me tell you 18’s are a game changer. If you are considering getting a set of 15’s, I would highly highly recommend looking at the 18’s, its one of my favorite pieces of gear these days. The B.5’s are just amazing, and actually really soon they are supposed to launching a 10x and 12x in the B.5 as well which is cool.
