Camping

Atmos/Aura anti-gravity backpacks by Osprey.

Osprey Atmos Aura Backpack

Osprey Atmos Aura Backpack

The fourth generation of Osprey’s Atmos ventilated backpack series features the Anti-Gravity™Suspension*. This 3D suspension system provides seamless comfort that contours the body allowing a trail experience like no other. Combined with custom capability and a full feature set, the Atmos AG™ sets a new standard in ventilated backpacking.

What is the AG™? A continuous panel of lightweight mesh extends from the top of the backpanel to the hipbelt. The seamless structure contours automatically to the body, providing outstanding fit and unrestricted movement when wearing the pack.

Come in and try out this and many more packs from Osprey!

Fishing

Patagonia Foot Tractor Wading Shoes

Patagonia’s new Foot Tractor Wading Boots with next-generation aluminum bar technology. The new, more aggressively shaped aluminum bars are just hard enough to cut through algae and slime, yet soft enough to conform to rock surfaces. They also grip well on muddy trails, won’t accumulate snow and don’t hold moisture. In other words, they offer the wading traction we’ve been looking for all our lives. Made with fast-drying synthetic leather and Venergy monofilament mesh panels, Foot Tractors offer industrial-strength support and protection in a light, comfortable boot.

Super Kühl Rydr Pants

Kuhl Rydr Pant

Kuhl Rydr Pant

The tenacious, yet luxurious, Kühl Rydr™ Pant is cut from our exclusive combed cotton euro-twill fabric that has been slightly brushed for an even softer feel. However, one look and you will realize these are much tougher than the denim in your closet. Once you put them on you will instantly recognize the anatomical design that follows the natural shape and curves of your body, providing the ultimate in fit and comfort. The classic five-pocket design is anything but traditional. Gusseted crotch and articulated knees allow unrestricted freedom to move. So tough even the pockets are reinforced in those high wear areas.

Black Flies, Mosquitoes and Ticks – Oh My!

Spring in Maine is here and with that – They’re baaaack!  That’s right, it’s that time of year when the black flies are flying, the mosquitoes are buzzing and the ticks are crawling!  As the weather warms and you are headed outdoors for walking, hiking, fishing, biking, boating and more, avoiding those mini beasties can be a challenge.

Ex Officio Damselfly Jacket

Ex Officio Damselfly Jacket

Both mosquitoes and ticks have the potential to carry several diseases, some of which can be deadly.  For more information on vector-borne diseases carried by mosquitoes and ticks, check out the Maine Center for Disease Control website.  May is also Lyme disease awareness month.  Did you know that Maine had more than 1,395 cases of Lyme disease reported in 2014 according to the Maine CDC?  On top of that, they expect that number to increase every year.  The best way to avoid any of these harmful diseases is prevention and Maine Sport is here to help you stay safe outdoors.

Maine Sport has everything you need to be able to enjoy the outdoors and avoid the annoying insects that can potentially harm you, your family or your pets.

We have Bug Baffler headnets, shirts and pants worn over your head and clothing to keep the bugs off.

Ex Officio Men's Ziwa Pant

Ex Officio Men’s Ziwa Pant

We carry clothing from Ex Officio and White Sierra that have Insect Shield repellent technology.  Insect Shield is designed to provide long-lasting, effective and convenient personal insect protection.  Using permethrin, these items have effective, odorless insect protection that lasts the expected lifetime of the product.  These items repel mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges (no-see-ums).  From White Sierra we have women’s 3/4 sleeve tunic tops, hoodys and pants.  From Ex Officio we have men’s and women’s light mesh ventilated jackets, quick dry pants, button up shirts, tunic tops, hats, socks and bandanas.  While supplies last you can get a FREE Ex Officio bandana with any Ex Officio insect-shield item purchased.  Great for you or your pet!

Insect Shield Mini Blanket

Insect Shield Mini Blanket

New this year we have two different sizes of outdoor Insect Shield blankets.  That should make your picnic or day at the beach a little more peaceful without the extra company.

We carry several different permethrin sprays to turn your own favorite outdoor apparel into insect repellent pieces.  While permethrin is only for spraying on clothing, shoes or equipment and not for your skin, we also have many options for exposed skin such as Bens, Natrapel,  wipes, Skeeter Skidaddler and other sprays.

Tick Key

Tick Key

If you didn’t get in to see us before you went out you may just need a tick key.  Probably wouldn’t hurt to have a couple of these around regardless.  Super simple way to easily remove a tick – don’t go into the woods without one!  Don’t forget the after bite soothing treatments as well to lessen the sting and itch if you just weren’t able to fend them off.

Maine Sport is your one-stop shop to keep the bugs at bay and keep the outdoors fun.  Now go outside!
