This past March we here at NRA Women were delighted to learn about the ALPS OutdoorZ Allure Day Pack—so delighted, in fact, that it was our inaugural "We Love It" column! It seems that we weren't the only women who noticed just how useful it would be to have a backpack designed especially for us. Today we've learned that our friends at Shoot Like A Girl collaborated with ALPS OutdoorZ to introduce an officially licensed Allure day pack, which is on sale right now directly from Shoot Like a Girl!
This partnership seems so obvious that it's easy to forget the role Shoot Like a Girl played in its creation. Karen Butler, Founder and President of Shoot Like a Girl, says, "The Allure pack was designed using Shoot Like A Girl's specific market research, with input from over 2,000 women living all across the country.” Continues Butler, “We analyzed the data, and ALPS OutdoorZ delivered a beautifully constructed pack that meets their needs, while staying in a price point that makes sense for customers. Our staff at Shoot Like A Girl also had time to field test the Allure pack, and it quickly surpassed expectations."
In our March review, we noted that it really is important to have a pack that's fitted to a female body. Women’s bodies have a different shape, a different weight distribution and a different spinal curve. As Shoot Like a Girl's field testers noted, this pack's standout advantage is its overall adjustability and fit. No matter your body shape, height or weight, the pack easily adjusts to fit comfortably—and that’s so important, especially when you’re spending long hours trekking through the woods.”
The Allure was created for all women who love the outdoors, but huntresses will note that it works beautifully for women who hunt from a stand, either a ground blind or tree stand. The pack has several features that any outdoor enthusiast will appreciate: multiple pockets for organization and quick access, a removable accessory pouch for essential items (like toiletries), a U-shape zipper top that opens wide and free-standing construction so gear stays safe inside. MSRP $149.99; currently on sale at Shoot Like a Girl for $124.99.
