Ranger Ready Appoints Outdoor Retail Sales Representation

November 2, 2022

As Ranger Ready Repellents expands across wholesale sales channels, the company has appointed H&G Outdoors based in Big Lake, Minnesota to represent its brand to outdoor retailers looking to protect their patrons from vector-borne disease caused by ticks, mosquitos and other biting insects.

NORWALK, Conn. (November 2nd, 2022) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Ranger Ready Inc. has appointed H&G Outdoors, a leading sales agency representing premium outdoor sporting goods brands since 1978, as its exclusive sales agency for the outdoor retail channel. H&G Outdoors will market and sell Ranger Ready Repellents to all channels of outdoor sports, sporting goods, camping, fishing and hunting retailers throughout the U.S.

“Our research clearly shows that active adults living an outdoor lifestyle are most likely to be bitten and annoyed by biting insects,” said Chris L. Fuentes, Founder and CEO of Ranger Ready Repellents. “We have developed both clothing-worn and body-worn repellents that are specifically designed to be long- lasting, have no scent and not harm outdoor gear. Today, over 3,000 state and national park rangers regularly use Ranger Ready in the field where we’ve seen a significant reduction in bites and tick-borne disease,” noted Fuentes.

“H&G Outdoors is pleased to add Ranger Ready as an important brand that will help our retail partners provide full DEET-free protection from ticks, mosquitos, flies, gnats and chiggers,” said Justin Giarusso, Principal Manager of H&G Outdoors. “We work with camping, fishing and hunting enthusiasts that demand high-performance products and Ranger Ready is quickly becoming their brand of choice,” he added.

Ranger Ready Repellents, along with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), encourage you to protect yourself both by wearing body-worn repellents with Picaridin 20% insect repellent and by treating your clothing and gear with Permethrin 0.5% spray. The combination of using both repellents in tandem provides a dual layer of protection from biting insects with the Ranger Ready P2PAK.
