NASHVILLE,Tenn. (Ammoland.Com) – Open the Cage Gear, LLC, (OTC) a multifaceted lifestyle company, steps into the chute with a co-branded clothing launch with Priefert, America’s No. 1 name in farm, ranch and rodeo equipment.

Both have OTC’s signature phrase, “Life is a fight…Open the Cage.” Watch the official launch video at OpenTheCageGear.Com.
The Priefert line complements the original clothing line that launched earlier this year. “These new designs were inspired by the extreme athletes of the sport of rodeo – these are beings who are not willing to settle for anything less than the ultimate experience in life,” said Jim Kinsey, co-founder of OTC, LLC. “We have an explosive synergy between Priefert and OTC, and our goal collectively is to honor the hard working traditions and inspire a whole other generation to saddle up, bear down, and hang on for this wild ride we call life. So, hats off to The Farmer, The Rancher, The Cowboys and Cowgirls.”
“Priefert is honored and excited to be partnering with Open the Cage to create a clothing line that truly embodies the spirit and the authenticity of the world of rodeo,” said Courtney Dyer, director of marketing for Priefert. “OTC’s concept resonated with us and who we know our customer base to be – a group of hard working men and women who wake up each day inspired to live life to the fullest and to take on any challenges that come their way. This line reaches out to our customers in a very unique way with quality materials and amazing designs that a lot people will want to wear not just at home on the ranch, but out on the town, or anywhere else that life may take them.”
Open the Cage Gear, LLC is headquartered in Florence, Mont. with sales operations in Nashville, Tenn. and Cincinnati, Ohio. Kinsey partnered with Nashville music artist Michael Connors and producer Mike Hartnett after they worked together on the song, “Open the Cage” in 2014. Kinsey further explains the company as a true lifestyle brand, “It started out as an MMA brand. But we knew the brand could be so much more. We wanted to reach everyday people with a message of moving forward. That's where our motto, ‘life is a fight …open the cage’ came into play. Just like in the rodeo – you have to open the Priefert chute, get on that bull and ride.”
“Each item is a premium fashion t-shirt. The shirts can be worn from day to nights out and the quality designs and craftsmanship will make Open the Cage brand shirts stand apart from others. If you just want to wear a t-shirt, that’s fine, but if you want to wear a quality t-shirt with meaning, then you’ll want Open the Cage Gear,” concluded Kinsey.
