Kolpin products can turn your ATV into the ultimate hunting machine
Because it is so versatile, most hunters use their ATV as a pack mule. They strap things to the racks, such as a gun case, bow holder, coolers, tree stand and storage bags to name but a few things. These necessities take up a lot of room. In the past, ATVerís have used primitive methods like garbage bags to transport extra clothes or a paper bag to hold a thermos and lunch causing the hunterís ATV to look like a chuck wagon on a cross-country trek.
It did not take long to realize there had to be a better way to transport your valuables without the worry of damage. Wouldnít it be great to use every inch of rack space and parade around in camouflage style? Your quad would be the talk of hunting camp and your cronies could only wish to have such an efficient package on their ATV. Just think, a top-notch gun boot, camo seat cover, and extra-large front and rear camouflage cargo bags. The advantages of keeping your gun in a well-protected gun boot could mean the difference between a wall hanger or just a tall tale. Envision having a place to keep your decoys and still having room for an extra jacket, rain gear and a lunch. The possibilities are limitless; thanks to Kolpin, a manufacturer of after market ATV accessories.

The neoprene Gun Boot Skin fits extremely well and helps with camouflaging. Gun Boot Skin.
If you think your gun boot might stick out like a sore thumb, think again. Kolpin designed a Gun Boot Skin to conceal the boot and blend into the surroundings.

A drawback to this cover is that while driving along brush or briars, small pull marks were evident after pickers brushed against it. This doesnít seem to be an extreme problem, but the elastic cover will not hold up to unnecessary abuse. The Gun Boot Skin has a suggested retail price of $49.99.

The Kolpin equipped hunting quad. Conclusion.
The Kolpin products are well designed and made for any outdoor adventure. These products help you blend in with the natural surroundings, helping to conceal your ATV. A few suggestions for Kolpin are to add a flap of material over the zippers on all their bags, thus, protecting the zippered area from water and mud. In addition, perhaps adding camouflage ATV fender covers to their product line would leave no reason to look anywhere else for after-market ATV hunting accessories. After installing the Kolpin package, you can be sure the boys at hunting camp will be asking a lot of questions.
