PROIS HUNTING APPARELâ„¢ ANNOUNCES PRO-STAFF PARTNERS
Despite being the â€œnew kid on the blockâ€ for womenâ€™s huntwear, Prois Hunting Apparel has gained much momentum in the industry and is proud to announce its pro-staff â€“ a collection of women in the outdoor industry who love the challenge of the hunting tradition.
Linda Powell â€” Senior Press Relations Manager and Conservation Sales Manager for Remington Firearms since 1996. Linda quickly discovered a hidden passion for hunting and shooting, welcoming the challenges and rewards that each new outdoor adventure offers. Now an accomplished hunter, she remains enthused about each opportunity in the field as if it was her first, whether waiting at dawn for the sound of a lone gobbler or trekking across the Arctic for musk ox.
Barbara Baird â€” Award-winning freelance outdoor writer whose bylines have appeared in a variety of local, regional and national magazines, as well as newspapers in Missouri, her home state. Barbara also teaches NRA pistol courses, hunts and is honing her bow-hunting skills this year. (She has been invited to hunt feral hogs with a spear in Alabama.) Barbara is a firm believer in that old adage that a bad day outdoors beats a good day in the office â€¦ and she believes that $200 is not too much to pay for a good pair of boots, but way too much for a pair of heels.
Jennifer Barvitski â€” Proisâ€™s very own product tester! Jennifer has been putting Prois Hunting Apparel through its paces since day one when Prois started as an idea and some patterns. An architect by trade, Jennifer lives in Colorado and has been hunting for over 20 years. She is a big game hunter with both bow and her rifle. She also is an avid bird hunter. Jennifer has traveled extensively with her family in search of prey to Africa, Mexico and many locations in the U.S. Throughout the year, she hunts elk in Colorado and then heads to Texas to hunt doves, quail and whitetail
Stephanie Mallory â€” Freelance writer and owner of Mallory Communications, Inc., a public relations firm. Stephanie has pursued a career in freelance writing, editing and photography. Her byline has appeared in more than 100 magazine articles for national and regional publications. She lives in Birmingham, Ala. Married to Brett Mallory, Stephanie is the proud mother of two children, Ethan and Ransom.
Kristina Martin â€” Television star, marketing director and model. Kristina is the wife of country artist, Daniel Lee Martin, and the â€œbetter halfâ€ of his show, â€œBackstage & Backroads,â€ which airs on The Sportsman Channel. She grew up in Florida, but now resides in Nashville, Tenn. Kristina is an avid outdoorswoman through and through. When she is not on the road with Daniel Leeâ€™s music career, his television show or handling the day-to-day duties as the Marketing Director for ChinMusic Records, she is traveling the world on her own with her modeling career. When it comes to the outdoors, looks can be deceiving and donâ€™t put anything past her, as she continues to steal the spotlight from her husband on every adventure!
Keli Van Cleave â€” Television personality with Bighorn Outdoors, president of PinkOutdoors, writer, lecturer, member of the National Fly Fishing Team and Colorado record holder for mule deer harvested in Colorado by a female bowhunter. That full-velvet buck had it all â€“ measuring 44 inches of mass with a 30-inch spread and scoring a 202 ¼ (Typical, Pope & Young). Keli is now in pursuit of the record Colorado elk harvested by a female bowhunter. Stay tuned! She says she inherited her love of the outdoors from her father and her love of â€œall things pinkâ€ from her mother.
Anne Vinnola â€” Entrepreneur and freelance writer. Anne has hunted with her family for several years and has written more than 40 articles about hunting, field care and taxidermy. She frequently provides articles and product reviews for Sportsmans News, bowhunting.net and womenhunters.com. She hunts big game with both bow and rifle. Anne and her husband, Jerry, own the Colorado Institute of Taxidermy Training and Big Timber South Taxidermy Studio in beautiful Canon City, Colo. They have four children, ages 13-21, who love hunting, shooting sports and the outdoors.
Dana Wall â€” Television personality and gator farmer. Co-Host Gator Trax Outdoors with Chad and Dana Wall, as seen on the Pursuit Channel. Dana was born and raised in Louisiana and later attended Southeastern Louisiana University. Through hosting Gator Trax Outdoors, she entertains viewers with fair chase â€“ from over-the-edge hunting in the swamps of Louisiana to the northern reaches of Alberta, Canada. She also is employed with Walls Alligator Farm where she enjoys her love for the outdoors each and every day. Family and faith are at the forefront of this young ladyâ€™s life.
Prois (Pro-iss) Hunting Apparel for Women, launched in 2008, provides women what they have long been missing in the field â€“ high-performance gear that is engineered to withstand the extremes of the hunt. Created with technical fabrics that allow wicking, windstopping, waterproofing and warmth, Prois is leading the way for women who are serious about the hunt and the gear they choose. In addition to technical fabrics, Prois has developed a number of signature features such as thumbholes in the cuff lines of long sleeve shirts and jackets, deep lumbar compartments for storage, scapular drop pockets to hold activated hand warmers, use of magnetic closures and additional pockets where they are most useful.
Donâ€™t just take their word for it, come see why Prois is SERIOUS HUNTWEAR FOR REAL WOMEN.
