I just wanted to catch up with the Crooked Horn Team and report on my last trip. A couple of friends and I went on a ride last weekend and ended up on The Rim of The Grand Canyon. We used Crooked Horn Gear.. The Trailblazer II was used while riding Motorcycles to carry everything from Fix-a Flat to gloves , Toilet paper and our Lunches (which we ate on the rim of the canyon)..
Bino-Shield was also used to keep our Binoculars Dust free while riding the 35 miles in and the 35 miles back out.. You don't have to hunt to appreciate the Quality Product that Crooked Horn Produces; however if you do hunt as well as enjoy weekend getaways during other times of the year Crooked Horn Gear can enhance those Trips as well..
Thanks for producing Quality Gear that does Double Duty for me and My Friends !! Lennis – Keep up the Hard work!!!!
Dear Sir I read the testimonial where a guys pack outlasted the wives and trucks and all and I just had to write you. My name is Matthew Landis, I am a veteran of the US Air Force and served during the first Gulf War. They stationed me in Colorado where I fell in love with bow hunting and put my hands on my first Crooked Horn pack. It's not made anymore and its a daypack that can double as a backpack. I worked as a guide on elk hunts in those Colorado mountains for 5 years. I've climbed more trees, killed more elk, and deer than I can remember. I've fallen, been lost, frozen, almost struck by lightning, soaked by rain, snow, and ice storms. I've fallen in frozen rivers and slipped off of wet rocks. All with my pack on. I've flat out abused the living heck out of that first pack I bought some 15 years ago. I now live in Pennsylvania where I obsessively chase whitetails and bear every year. The pack has fallen out of trees, used as a bench rest and heck even a punching bag if I miss. Sir, just the other day I took that pack and threw it in the bathtub with some cool water and a squirt of laundry soap. It was the first time it had seen any sort of cleaning in all those years. Some long overdue dirt came out, I dried it over the wood stove and I am proud to say it looks almost like new. The camo is virtually unfaded. The seams are flawless. I have had only to replace one buckle that broke on a coyote hunt with wind chills pushing -15 degrees outside.
In summary, that first pack I bought is the ONLY pack I have EVER used on ANY hunt and it is STILL in terrific shape. I am proud to own this and in all sincerity will someday probably pass it down to my children to use. It just refuses to wear out. I am now in the market for a slightly larger pack, and will look no further then what your company offers. As a veteran I thank you for showing whats possible when good people with a dream and a strong will to work are mixed with freedom.
