Hyla Gear Outdoor Tech Apparel Review

Why Hyla Gear Tech Apparel

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get tired of seeing the same camo patterns over and over. After a while they all just seem to blend together… But seriously, I feel like the focus has been more about marketing and looking cool than providing a quality tech product to hunters. Allow me to introduce you to an outdoor apparel company that is not only creating brand new camo patterns from actual imagery but rethinking the way we gear up.

Hyla Gear Camo

Meet Hyla Gear, 100% made in the USA tech apparel designer whose quality gear is making an impact. For my review, I tested the latest lightweight all weather shell pants
and jacket. This system is one part of a layering system Hyla uses patterned after a U.S. Military System. The outer shell items are lightweight and able to be worn in both warm and cold weather when it rains or snows. For colder weather, Hyla also sells the base layer ribbed jackets in 4 colors that are made with synthetic 120gsm insulation ribbed and are both functional and affordable. They merge perfectly with the outer layer shell over top and even fold into themselves into the left hand pocket.

Apparel for Outdoorsmen

I’m attracted to these products because of their simplicity and affordability. If you are a hunter or outdoorsmen to wants to be ready for any situation wherever you hunt, then check this gear out. The fabric used is soft to the touch and seemingly quiet for rain gear which I really like. The zippers are waterproof and open down which makes opening easier with one hand. Additionally, the seams are sealed on both the inside and outside which is an extra touch that ensures no water will get through.  Two really nice features that I appreciated are the fold away hood with added hood adjustment cords to keep the rain and the hood visor out of your face. Also, the jacket sleeves are uniquely cut to allow the rain to run off but still allow full functional hand movement. Pocket placement is on point with 7 total pockets that include 2 forearm, 2 chest, 2 hand, and 1 inner cell phone pocket. IMG_0573

One thing that is still in development for Hyla is more geographic camouflage patterns. I would really like to see the company come out with more new patterns and more accessory options. Right now, they only have one camo pattern but stay tuned; a new one is scheduled to be released this winter. Another thing that I noticed is that if the pants are a little bit loose, the belt clip in the front can ride up on the waist. However, the design is similar to other products on the market, and as long as you choose the proper size pant, you shouldn’t have a problem. Speaking of competition, a similar product on the market would be the KUIU Yukon Jacket. The Yukon has the same zipper options, pocket options, and sealed water proof zippers but with a price tag of $349. Also, the Sitka Cloudburst Jacket which is available at Cabelas also sells for $349 and has similar attributes. This Hyla all weather shell sells for $125 less at $225.IMG_0358

The biggest positives of the product in my opinion, is the lightweight pack-ability, affordability, and the fact that it is made right here in the USA. Hyla Gear is available on the website at www.hylagear.com. The all weather Jacket and pants that I tested are available for $225 and $155 respectively. You can also find beanies, gloves, and a Hyla backpacks for sale on the site as well.

Follow me on Instagram @BowHuntCulture - I am Jonathan Fassnacht! I have been married to my amazing wife Ashley for 5 years and have two beautiful children, Reed and Lillian. I am an active duty Officer in the U.S. Coast Guard and originally from South Central Pennsylvania. I give credit and thanks to my Father who always ensured that my brother and I grew up with wholesome experiences in the outdoors both hunting and fishing. My roots as a child were lake and pond fishing for bass and bluegill, and small mouth bass fishing the Susquehanna River on summer nights while battling the emerging evening insect army. Those electric experiences of watching the sun setting and having a massive smallmouth bass attack my top water lure hooked me for life! My early field/woods adventures included dove hunting in September and white-tailed deer hunting in the beautiful Pennsylvania woods. Since then I’ve had the opportunity to travel a bit and have been able to hunt and/or fish in Alabama, Louisiana, South Carolina, Maryland, Delaware, and Montana and pray that list keeps growing! Oh I forgot, I caught a catfish in Argentina! My true passion is archery hunting whitetails and most recently chasing big urban bucks around the Wilmington, De suburbs. I take pride and find great enjoyment in introducing others to experience the joy that I do while experiencing God’s special gift of the great outdoors. I’m so happy to be a part of the MHAF team!
