Decibullz Custom Molded Percussive Shooting Filters

Decibullz, the leader in custom thermofit earplugs and earphones, announced a new addition to its earplug line – Custom Molded Percussive Filters. These hightech filters allow comfortable conversation yet engage automatically to block noise from gunfire through a mechanical filter that doesn't require batteries, so it's always ready.

Decibullz's existing earplugs come with an impressive noise reduction rating of 31dB, and the new Percussive Filters offer similar protection levels for users while allowing for some ambient noise to pass through. That added protection is crucial as a single shotgun blast can hit 165 dB. In comparison, the pounding of a jackhammer only reaches 125 dB. Decibullz's new filters offer users that additional protection without compromising their hearing experience. The filters are ANSI IPIL certified up to 166 dB. When no loud noises are present, users can still hear low-level noise, such as conversation. The filters also allow sound directionality and spatiality, meaning users can hear all around them, which is critical for hunters.

When our hunting boot customers kept asking us to build a wildland firefighting boot with the same lightweight comfort, durability, and support as our mountain boots, we realized the challenge that was involved. All of our boots are proudly designed to not let you down in any conditions, but stepping “into the fire” presented us with a new learning curve, which we dove into headfirst.

To pass the Independent Laboratory testing for compliance, we had to build a boot that could pass rigorous heat and flame testing and then selfextinguish. After two years of a meticulous design process encompassing every component, our Wildland Fire Boot passed the test. The K-73 FIRE outsole with its high traction, deep lug outsoles responded incredibly, and the Kevlar Hot Zone stitching and laces stood up to every test we threw their way.

Kryptek Defender

Our new Ares jacket, Cirius jacket, and Cirius vest all come with our new water-resistant down technology called “Kryptek Defender.” It comes in three cold weather pieces and is an absolutely amazing piece of technology that we are really excited about. The color options are HIGHLANDER and TYPHON.

Kryptek Defender is additional protection for your down gear. It offers an extra level of moisture protection for down garments exposed to wet environments. Kryptek Defender helps prevent down from clumping and losing its loft when exposed to rain and snow, thereby maximizing its ability to keep you warm and comfortable.

The treatment puts a hydrophobic layer on each individual cluster. This treatment is done during the down cleaning process. The finish is extremely durable, allowing the down to maintain its water repellancy for the life of the garment. The treatment also enhances the down̕s integrity and the durability of the cluster, helping to increase its longevity.

The New Flatline Stabilizer features Mathews' exclusive dampening technology in a new EHS Nano configuration for added vibration dampening and enhanced stabilization. The EHS Nano is paired with a high modulus carbon fiber rod and precision-machined end cap weights to ensure ultimate rigidity, while allowing you to control the amount of added weight. The Flatline Stabilizer comes in six different finishes and in 6" and 8" versions.

The 2018 TRIAX is highly maneuverable, deadly accurate, and the quietest, most vibration-free bow Mathews has ever built. It operates off of a 28" ATA platform with a 6" brace height and is powered by the award-winning, highly efficient, and extremely accurate Crosscentric™ Cam system, producing speeds up to 343 fps.

The TRIAX features new 3D Damping Technology that works to control the three perceived axes of vibration stemming from the point of contact. The design and location of the new Enhanced Harmonic Stabilizer (EHS) diminishes all three paths of that residual vibration, drastically reducing post-shot noise and virtually eliminating felt recoil. This new location also transfers weight in front of and below the grip for a lower center of gravity, resulting in increased stability and easier aiming.
