Win Free Stuff: Ball and Buck’s New Active + Collection for the Outdoorsman

With spring right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking shorts again. Our friends at Ball and Buck have come out with a new active collection that has us stoked for summer.

Creating the highest-quality goods, Ball and Buck is a brand for the sporting gentleman while supporting American jobs in manufacturing. But don’t think this is some out of reach brand for hedge fund managers and tech-bros. Founded in 2008, these guys live the life and know what works. And, even though the brand is American made, the prices aren’t through the roof.

To get you pumped for warmer weather, our friends at Ball and Buck are giving away two items from their newest Active + Collection: the Active Short + and the Anglers Shirt +.



Made with 3.4oz Nylon Taslan fabric, these shorts have a quick-dry water repellent finish. We are fans of the adjustable waistband, the antique brass button fly, and mesh pocket inserts for drainage for when you cannonball into the local lazy river (just take out your phone first).



This water resistant, lightweight shirt features both button up sleeves and a roll-tab breast pocket to attach Ball and Buck’s Versa Fly Patch to keep your flies safe when you’re spending your days out on the water.

For your shot at a chance to win this $275 value (in the form of some damn sharp quick dry shorts and light weight anglers shirt), simply provide your name and email below. You can also get bonus entries by following us on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) and signing up for our newsletter. The contest runs from March 22, 2017 through March 29, 2017, with the winner notified shortly thereafter.
