Our Story

Pyke Gear was born out of necessity. Having been an outdoorsman his whole life, brand creator, Brent Pike has worn (and worn out) twenty year’s worth of all the popular upland garments. Pyke Gear is here to replace the waxed cotton jackets, heavy pants, and wool shirts you’ve seen in magazine shoots for the past 30 years. Traveling Wingshooters and upland hunters have not been given the option of 21st century materials that are as versatile as they are comfortable. Pyke Gear was developed from thousands of boot steps in hot, cold, windy and rainy weather across North America. Now you will have the clothing designed by modern hunters with world class fabrics that will deliver an even greater bird hunting experience.

Pyke Upland Gear Newfoundland Hunting


Today’s upland hunting clothes are designed around what our grandfathers wore for work and for hunting (they literally use the same patterns). Brush pants are typically too baggy, lack waist flexibility, knee articulation, and thigh radius. Shooting shirts don’t stay tucked in, sleeves are too short and impede your movement. Jackets are bulky and heavy. The bottom line is we hated the way our clothes fit and it impacted our comfort and enjoyment afield. Pyke Gear feels that the people designing clothes for Wingshooters should be out there using them. It’s really that simple.


We will work tirelessly with organizations that support our collective goals: Ruffed Grouse Society, Pheasants and Quail Forever, and Backcountry Hunters and Anglers. This is us. This is our mission. We will not relent; that is the Pyke Guarantee!
