Incorporating both a waterproof and windproof hooded outer shell and a heavily insulated removable inner liner, each of which can be worn together or separately, the V1 Whitetail Heavyweight 3-N-1 Parka, from Thiessens, is versatile enough to suit your hunting needs in almost any climate. Featuring numerous interior and exterior pockets, and quiet snaps that won’t spook your quarry, the outer shell is durable yet flexible, while the inner liner provides warmth via the ample application of Thinsulate insulation. Both garments bear Realtree’s Edge camouflage pattern for effective concealment in a variety of outdoor environments, and each makes use of moisture-wicking, odor-resistant mesh lining.

Collectors refer to these shortened carbines as “trappers,” but that term was never officially used by either Winchester or Marlin. Winchester referred to them as “Baby Carbines” or “Special Short Carbines” on the rare occasions when they were cataloged.
The term “inside out” can be taken literally or applied as a phrase to describe the thoroughness with which an idea is understood. In this month’s issue, we hope to illustrate that the latter especially is used as a guiding principle to keep the American firearm industry at the top of its game.
