Hunting season is almost here and it won’t be long until the practice I've been doing with my goose call will hopefully pay off. I love the early morning frost and setting up decoys along with a good friend or two while discussing our strategies for the day.
However, December and January can get extremely cold here in the Midwest. Those are usually great hunting days, but if you’re not careful, that cold weather can get to you in more ways than one. I'm always on the lookout for products that will make my outdoor experiences more enjoyable and allow me to more fully concentrate on the task at hand.
Last year I was introduced to Gerbing’s Blind Heat. This wonderful companion for hunting keeps you warm and attaches to a treestand or any layout goose blind and heats from the top of your back to the back of your knees.
The Blind Heat unit from Gerbing's will keep you warm from the top of your back down to your knees.
The Blind Heat cushion comes complete with a very powerful and lightweight battery and charger. It’s powered by a NIMH 4.Oah rechargeable battery pack. Constructed with a durable 1000 denier cordura-like fabric, it seems to become part of your laydown blind and all you feel is the warmth while remaining extremely comfortable.
The Blind Heat has a built-in magnetic on/off switch for temperature control. It can also be used in your hunting vehicle once you purchase an optional 12-volt DC plug adapter. The Blind Heat comes with a lifetime warranty and from the testimonies I've read, Gerbing’s excels in the customer service department. Therefore, their products should not only last a long time, but they will back up their quality and craftsmanship as well.
The Blind Heat is an excellent addition to your hunting arsenal and will not only keep you warm, but will help to keep you focused on your shot instead of the weather. Gerbing’s also makes heated clothing and other accessories that are all worth look.
