By adding a zipper to the side of three of its current boots, the Georgia Boot company has given hunters a fast way to get in and out of their footwear. No laces? Well, the boot has to be laced up the first time you put it on, but after that, it's a great fit with easy access.
The three boots that include the side zipper are the 8" Insulated Gore-Tex Boot, the 8" Comfort Core Waterproof Boot, and the Comfort Core Waterproof Camp Oxford.

Browning Platinum Series Safes
These new safes caught our eye with the beautiful scenes that grace the door of each unit. But, once we took a look inside, we realized there was much more to the safe than the outer shell. The safe features a steel body and a drill-resistant deflectoor plate between the steel layers of the door. The inside is a spacious 72" x 40" x 28" cavern designed well to hold all kinds of valuables.

The best quality in Weatherby's new big game model is the lack of extra weight. At just 5 3/4 lbs, this could be a great choice if you need to cover a lot of ground during a hunt. In the most popular big game calibers, Weatherby boasts that it shoots with varmint rifle-like accuracy.
