Elastic Hunting Clothing?

At first it may seem strange to think of elastic when planning your hunting clothing for the season. However, at Onca Gear we have achieved a revolutionary way to implement elastic into the clothes to result in ultimate flexibility, range of movement, and comfort. What is OncaElastic? OncaElastic is a fabric developed by Onca used for bi-elastic pants, bi-elastic jackets and caps. It is designed for active hunting clothing suitable for all seasons. The requirements that our development team scored for OncaElastic were: Great comfort Elasticity 4-ways High breathability High temperature range of use Water repellency, high performance, and durability Tear and fouling resistance The fabric is quiet Lightness Anti-odor   After months of development and numerous prototypes, we came...

How Onca Began...

In December, 2011, we decided to undertake the challenge of creating a company to develop camouflage hunting clothes with the idea of offering an innovative product with the highest quality materials to compete worldwide with the big brands. After analyzing the market, competitors, and their products, we decided to go ahead with the project. We started working to define the brand--no easy task--to find a name that resonates with the outdoors and with the properties of our products. After a LOT of research into animal names that conjure up many of the qualities we thought our camouflage hunting clothes should have, we ended up choosing ONCA (from Panthera onca, the scientific name for the Jaguar, the largest feline in the...

Washing Your Hunting Gear

We often get asked, “How do you properly take care of and wash technical hunting clothing?” Here are some tips that we think will be helpful. The first thing you should do after buying any technical hunting clothing is to wash it. It may seem silly, but it’s quite important because the fabric reaches the workshop, goes to production, and then goes directly to the store without being washed. The problem is that fresh from the factory fabrics usually contain traces of materials from the spinning and weaving processes and this can eliminate some of the properties of an item. So if you can, wash it before your first use. THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN WASHING HUNTING CLOTHES Never wash in...

Anthony Montoya - Colorado

This was my first year using Onca Gear,  and I'm very impressed. At first, I was worried about the color, seemed so white, But after having a strutting gobbler coming straight at me at less than 12 yards and me without anything to hide me but small aspenings and not see me, I now have all the confidence in the world with the Ibex camo. Onca Gear shell pantsOncatherm 1/4 zip has now become my number one favorite.  I shot him in SW Colorado Sunday morning. Shot him at 6:15, ten minutes after he hit the ground at under 12 yards as he came straight at me. It was a quick set up and had nothing in front of me...

Brett Cormier - New Zealand

Hi Julian, We are back from a very successful New Zealand hunting trip, fortunately, we only needed the rain gear for a few hours, but it worked great!  We wore the Onca gear most of the time anyway, it blended into the New Zealand terrain well.  The other hunters, guides, and the owner really liked the gear and asked who made it.  Attached are a couple pictures.

Brent Tardif - BC, Canada

I was fortunate enough to take my wife with me on a goat hunt in southern BC and she wore an OncaWarm jacket that I won in a raffle. We were in cold temperatures, rain and snow and the jacket proves to hold up in all conditions! Needless to say, the jacket is no longer mine, she claimed it! We both love your gear and hope to get more of it this coming season! - Brent Tardif

Hunting Clothes For Warm Weather

When we think of a shirt fabric for use with high temperature and high humidity, it's important the fabric allows us to feel fresh, with a high degree of breathability and absorption to allow quick drying--we want to avoid bacteria growth. In recent years there have been many synthetic fabrics that work well in environments with high temperatures and humidity, getting great breathability, high absorption and fast drying. We must not forget the natural fabrics that have a good degree of breathability and absorption, although not comparable with the new synthetic fabrics and also dry slower. At Onca Gear we work to develop a new fabric that allows your skin to breathe, absorbs sweat, and disperses humidity, thus drying very fast, ensuring you always feel fresh and dry. DEVELOPMENT...
