Everyone is affected by the heat at some point. On a recent trip to the Florida Keys, heat stroke was a real possibility. The new Arctic Radwear by Radians helped keep that possibility at bay.

The Radians Arctic Radwear Cooling Towel, Headshade, and Headband are made with Advanced ARCTIC™ Technology. This technology speeds the evaporation cooling process.  Using is simple: soak the band in water for 2 – 3 minutes and shake. This will provide cooling relief for up to five hours.  The patent pending stretch-fit spandex is designed to allow the band to move with your body. This provides a comfortable fit and allows for optimum blood circulation to help keep you cooler. All of the Arctic Radwear products are to be used during hot or strenuous outdoor activities: construction work, tough workouts, hunting, fishing, biking or hiking. The towel and the cooling pads on the Headband and Headshade are anti-microbial to prevent mold growth and unwanted smells. They are safe to use and reusable. The Headbands and Headshade come in several colors to coordinate with your clothing or activities. The Headband comes in Blue, Blue Paisley, Red Paisley, Camo, and High Visibility Lime. The Headshade comes in Blue, Blue Paisley, Red Paisley, and Camo. The Cooling Towel comes in Blue and High Visibility Lime.

My husband and I were down working on our boat and our friend’s home. Part of the time, we were replacing concrete block that had been damaged. As Dale proceeded to start laying the block, the sweat was already pouring off of his head. I quickly activated the Headband with water and had Dale start wearing it. It was easily noticeable that Dale no longer had sweat running into his eyes, and when I inquired about how hot he was, he replied “feeling good” with a smile. Later in the same trip, we were fishing out on the ocean, with no shade. I was wearing the Headshade, and at no point was I ever overheated. I also kept the Cooling Towel wet, and everyone was using it to wipe down their faces and even place it around their necks to increase the cooling effect. We were out on the water for four hours, and both the Headshade and Cooling Towel stayed cool to the touch the entire time! I also made use of the Arctic Radwear while we biked and walked the many hiking trails.

It seemed the more I used them, the more ways to use them I came up with. I will be taking them with me this summer when we go camping. I usually get uncomfortable from the hot summer weather, and not having any way to cool down our tent makes sleeping difficult. I think the Cooling Towel, either under my head, or on my torso will provide me with enough cooling effect that I can get a good nights sleep.

The MSRP of the Radian’s Arctic Radwear are: Cooling Towel $12.99, Headband $6.99 and the Headshade $12.99. These items can be purchased at most sporting goods shops and on Amazon.

We always try to protect both our eyes and ears, and Radians has just what we need. The Bone Collector Line of Eye Wear is comfortable to wear, and it’s great to know that your eyes are protected when shooting.

Our youth staff was just as comfortable in these safety glasses as our adult staff members were. We had several lens color choices to pick from; everyone was able to find lenses that would help with their shooting and target acquisition on this bright winter day.

The MSRP of the Bone Collector Triple Ring Shooting Glasses is $12.99 and the Velocity Shooting Glasses is $12.99. This is a small price to pay to protect your eyesight; Afterall, you only have one set of eyes. Both are available for sale from most sporting good retailers across the county.

Radians for Women and Youth

7 03 2013

This product review was originally published on http://ladiesincamo.com/licpr/2013/03/06/radians-for-youth-and-womendiane/

I have been using Radians products for more years than I am going to admit to in writing.  Many years ago I was suffering from an inner ear problem, and I couldn’t be around shooting without being in pain. My husband bought me my first set of electronic earmuffs at that time, they were my first Radians.  I was so impressed, I was like a little kid running around telling everyone who would listen how thrilled I was with my hearing protection.  Many of the shooters I was bragging to, had never had a pair of electronic earmuffs, and couldn’t understand how you could hear better, but not blow out your eardrums when shooting, while wearing them.  But, they all went out and bought the same earmuffs I had, after using mine for just a little while!  They became believers!

Ryan is all set to go shooting, now he had eye and ear protection that fits!

Now we return to the present, and I am still running around telling everyone how great they are!  I still have my original pair, and they still work great, but I have added to that one over the years.

The Hunter‘s Ears model has to be the best all around model I have used.  They feature the dual independently controlled microphones which enhance and amplify sound, while they automatically compress the harmful sudden noise from a muzzle blast. Like all of the Radians earmuffs, they can be folded very compactly for protection of the unit and ease of storage.  They are comfortable to wear, with lots of adjustment for different sized heads.  I tend to forget I even have them on!

HE4P00CS

The Prowl Ears model is a behind the ear version that still has the amplification and compression features.  These are extremely small and easy to transport and pack.  The package includes 2 units and will work both in the woods or on the job.  Wearing this model, you can easily wear a hat or head band for warmth.

Prowl Ear_PR2601CS

My new favorite pair is the Enhance Ear!  The are a very small design that fits comfortably and securely into your ear.  Like the other electronic hearing protection that Radians offers, these can do the double duty of sound application and harmful sound compression. These do the job of their bigger brothers, while leaving you the freedom of hats, headband and eye glasses without any conflicting. I wore these the entire time I was hog hunting in Alabama recently.  They made hearing the faint hog noises much easier, while of course not doing any damage to my hearing from my shots!  Plus no extra weight to carry around with you!  These will be going to South Africa with me in a couple of months.  I need to watch what I pack because of weight, and these don’t weigh enough to make any difference in my luggage, but they will definitely make a difference when we are sighting in our rifles and hunting!

Enhance Ear_TA2701CS

For my grandchildren, I am loving the new Women and Youth models!  They now offer a Pink Pro-Amp model, which of course is pink.  They feature the dual independent microphones which amplifies your normal conversations while keeping the harmful impulse noises to a safe level. The headband is padded with a moisture wicking material.  These are designed for the smaller heads that we women tend to have.  My granddaughters have been fighting over this pair, so I will probably be adding another into our collection!
Pink Pro-Amp_PAP700CS

There are several combination packs that are offered for Women and Youth.  There is a T-71P/MP22C that pairs the performance shooting glasses with the slim design passive earmuffs.  This combo comes in pink, with the shooting glasses having tasteful accents in pink.  These earmuffs have a Noise Reduction Rating (NNR) of 22.

There is also the True Jr. Combo kit, which has the silver colored True Jr. Earmuuffs designed specifically for the younger shooter.  These are passive, and have a NNR of 21.  This kit also includes the youth model shooting glasses, with 3 interchangeable lens colors.

My grandchildren shoot often with us, so it is important to have eye and hearing protection that not only fits correctly, but also protects their delicate ears and eyes.  These models fit the bill, and also require no batteries!  We used to let them use our electronic versions, and we would have to purchase new batteries absolutely every time we used them.  The kids would inevitably leave the microphones turned on, even after they were done wearing them.  These passive models are perfect for the kids that would forget.

Radians manufactures for several different companies, including Remington.  They have also came out with a complete line of Michael Waddell’s Bone Collector shooting glasses and hearing protection.  Fashionable and functional performance!

I use my hearing protection for every situation.  They go from shooting and hunting to cutting firewood and running other equipment.  The next time you are in the market for a new set of hearing protection, look for the Radians name, you will not be disappointed!  They have a hearing protection for every application and budget!

These products can be purchased at Cabelas, Bass Pro, Gander Mountain, Sears, Amazon and many other retailers.  They range in price from $15.99 for the Low Set Ear Muffs to around $100 for the Hunter’s Ear model.  And the best part…They are Made in the USA!!

Our Jr. Staff Alexa has big plans for this set of T-71P/MP22C.  She will be sporting them during our Youth Turkey Hunt.
