Dalton Gray

I was born in Fairbanks, Alaska, but raised in the Fiji Islands for the better part of 15 years where my family worked as missionaries. As a boy, I learned the skills of traditional archery and developed a deep love for hunting and the outdoors. Returning to my home state in 2014, I was eager to experience hunting Alaska’s backcountry and the animals that call it home. Since then, I have enjoyed hunting in every way available to me from bear bait hunting to backpack-style mountain hunting. In the recent years I have become a licensed guide and am pursuing my lifelong dream of professional hunting. I am excited for the opportunity to share my experiences from the backcountry of Alaska as well as my knowledge of the tools needed for success.

Down vs. Synthetic Insulation for Backcountry Hunting

Whether it’s time to layer up against dropping temperatures, or time to tuck into your sleeping bag at the end of a long day in the woods, insulation in the backcountry is of paramount importance. Protection from the elements is one of the most vital factors when considering gear for a backcountry hunt, because without it, you likely won’t be able to endure the elements that you’ll encounter in the field. In the market for hunting apparel, “puffy gear” has become very popular both for its high warmth-to-wight ratio and also its packability. There are two main types of insulation when it comes to sleeping bags and puffy gear, whether it’s pants or jacket: down and synthetic insulation.
