RMB NOTE: I got to check out some of SJK's new gear earlier this year at SHOT Show 2014, including their new line of hunting packs and Thermal Cloak Treestand Bag. SJK sent us out test samples of their new Thermal Cloak and Snare 2000 Pack, and I was very impressed. Although they are designed for hunters, their features and rugged construction make them excellent candidates for bushcrafting.

From what I've seen in field testing so far, the SJK gear appears to be of excellent quality. Check out our Facebook post showing initial field testing of the Thermal Cloak in bitter -20F weather. It performed brilliantly. Expect to see a field review of both products as Fall approaches.
It's always sad to see a company with such a long history go away, but it's exciting to see SlumberJack reinvent itself with a new direction and cool new products.
