    Promising review: "Works as advertised. Able to have normal conversation while shooting at indoor range while blocking out extreme loudness of our shots as well as others in lanes close to us.

    Promising review: "I have owned many of the major manufacture's decoy bags and the Cabela's Northern Flight bag is my favorite. The ability to unbuckle/detach the carrying straps from the bag makes it real easy to deploy and pick up my decoys. No more fighting your way past the straps while trying to put the decoys into their individual slots."—Okie Fowler

    Price: $39.99+ (available in two sizes)

    7. A two-mantle powerhouse lantern that burns two fuels for up to seven hours of burning time on a high setting (that's the time it takes to watch Reese Witherspoon's outdoors movie Wild three and a half times!).

    Promising review: "Gonna keep it short. Coleman Dual Fuel is a must-have for everyone. I have been using these lanterns for more than 40 years. I was taught that every family of five should have no less than three of these lanterns with six sets of mantles for each. Do your own research on lighting indoors and out."—deerslayr

    Price: $109.99

    8. An electric fillet knife for cutting straight to the chase with your catch. The knife includes a no-slip grip handle customized to the shape of your hand, and has four interchangeable blades to accommodate an assortment of fish types and sizes.

    12. A portable fire pit made from stainless steel and a state-of-the-art airflow design that optimizes the fire's heat distribution, so you can have all coziness without all the smoke. Where there's smoke, there's fire, but not here.

    Promising review: "We ordered the Bonfire in the summer of 2020 when we realized it was the PERFECT way to host outdoor, socially-distanced visits. It caught on like (ahem) a wildfire in our Austin neighborhood. Four of our neighbors followed suit and also got Bonfires. The Bonfire is big enough for a good campfire, and small enough to travel. We have now toted the Bonfire to Houston, Minneapolis, and Big Bend Ranch SP. It made those pandemic trips safely come ALIVE. Definitely getting another one, just cuz two gotta be even better than one."—Kevin

    Price: $254.99 (originally $349.99)

    13. A pair of Western boots that are both practical (constructed from durable full-grain leather) and stylish as heck with four-row stitching. Cowgirls don't sing the blues in these boots.

    Promising review: "I have never worn a pair of cowboy boots in my life until I got these. I never considered myself a boot girl. But OML these are not only adorable but comfortable, and they look absolutely FANTASTIC with Ariat straight-leg jeans! These are my go-to boots for everything now. LOVE THEM! Order a half-size smaller than your sneaker size."—Guildbrook Farm

    Price: $189.99 (available in sizes 5-11)

    Promising review: "Yeti coolers are definitely THE gold standard when it comes to coolers! The Tundra 35 is the perfect size for boating, camping, hanging out. The cooler that will keep everything cold for hours and hours without having to worry about constantly adding ice on a really hot summer day. The colors always stand out and get tons of comments. The construction is sturdy and the insulation is phenomenal! This cooler will outlast me so I’ve already willed it to my son when I’m gone. Thanks Yeti, you’ve earned another lifelong customer!"—LaRuo

    Price: $249.99

    Promising review: "Bought these for my son for his first big game hunt and we could not be happier for youth and adult hunters. These are great to shed weight, no need to carry a second set; they can be hand-held and tripod-mounted, so best of both worlds. Very bright and clear."—1800boardup

    Price: $999.99+ (available in two magnification levels and two objective sizes)

    16. A Yeti tumbler so your ice-cold drinks can stay icy, and your scorching hot ones can stay as steamy as when they were brewed. This stainless-steel tumbler does both, with double-wall vacuum insulation.

    Promising review: "Love the color, love the function. The slide is nearly tip-over proof (although you wouldn’t expect it to be), and the cup itself keeps drinks cold for upward of 12 hours. This is my second one, and If I needed it, I’d get a third!" —cmb333

    Price: $29.99+ (available in two sizes)

    Promising review: "I have had this vest for a couple years now and didn't think I would ever need it until I did. Long story short, my kayak took on water in rough waves and sank from under me. Life Jacket deployed the second I hit the water. Luckily, my husband was close in his boat and we were close to shore. Everyone and everything made to shore."—SafeFisher

    Price: $99.99 (available in three colors)

    Promising review: "I bought this bag a year ago and use it as my everyday carry bag. I have used it to carried everything from books, to tool bag, to a go bag, to now my everyday carry bag. It holds a good number of items and has enough pockets to satisfy me as I wear cargo pants to have enough pockets. The zippers are good and the material has held up great. I will order another one as the price is great."—Jar el

    Price: $12.99 (available in six colors)

    19. A weather alert radio for when you don't have a cell signal to ask Siri what the weather is gonna be like. This radio features customized alerts according to your location (which hopefully isn't a creepy cabin in the woods, but a cozy one).
