Realtree has joined forces with Reebok and the NFL to develop a line of clothing designed especially for those who love to watch a pro game on the field when they're not chasing game in the field.
The Open Field Collection, a focused collection of hunting and fishing apparel, combines the logos of 32 NFL teams with Realtree camo patterns. The collection targets sporting good stores and outdoor specialists, such as Bass Pro, Cabela's and Gander Mountain.
Research conduced by Reebok revealed that there are more than 11 million avid NFL fans who are also frequent participants in hunting and fishing, so combining both passions into one collection seemed like the natural thing to do.
The initial Open Field line features eight key styles, including a fleece hoodie, a heavy weight cotton canvas jacket and several long sleeved cotton T-Shirts. One of the most compelling pieces is the NFL Equipment Speedwick T-shirt with Play Dry fabric, which features the exact design and construction of the shirt worn by the NFL player during practice and games, but with a camo pattern. The Realtree patterns give the collection authenticity with avid sportsmen, as well as added performance.
Other companies have combined the two passions in some of their offerings as well. Great American Products NFL team drinkwear; Zippo NFL team lighters and camping items; and Wincraft NFL team flags, pennants and novelties.
Products will be available to the public fall 2010.
