Vans and Defcon Resurrect the Sk8-Hi Notchback Pro

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Available May 27 at Select Retailers Globally

Cypress, CALIF. (May 23, 2017) – While DEFCON origins remain classified, the projects stamped with their namesake speak volumes. Vans reunites with the stealth collective this spring to resurrect the Vans Sk8-Hi Notchback Pro, engineered with three new Multicam® patterns, Arid™, Tropic™, and Black™, specifically designed to reduce the visual and near-Infrared signature of a person in three distinct environments. As an ode to past projects, the Vans DEFCON Multicam® capsule comes full circle, completing the footwear outfit with new apparel fabrics originally developed for the US Army and tactical law enforcement.

Available at select Vans Pro Skate retailers worldwide on May 27, the Vans Sk8-Hi Notchback Pro by DEFCON features:

• Premium Waterproof and Flame Retardant Wolverine Pig Suede®
• Water-Resistant treatment on uppers
• Multicam® Nylon textiles
• Dri-Lex™ moisture management linings throughout
• Gusseted tongue
• Military detailing from DEFCON identity to BDU specs
• Vans Ultracush HD footbeds w/ custom artwork
• Hesh Goat embossed heel stamp
• Durable reverse lug outsole and knurled texture foxing tape

DEFCON has evolved into a multifaceted study group responsible for the marketing and development of some of the leading brands in the tactical and streetwear worlds. Through both natural curiosity and fascination turned obsession, DEFCON has perfected their craft in media modifications, establishing their repute as a standalone brand.

The Vans by DEFCON limited-edition footwear and apparel capsule is available worldwide on May 27 at select Vans Pro Skate dealers. Visit Vans.com/skate to find authorized dealers near you.

Warrior West – Wild Things White Out Overwhite Kit in MultiCam Alpine

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Rather than traditional heavy, cotton overwhites which absorbe maisture and freeze, Wild Things makes their White Out Overwhite from a functional and durable 70-denier nylon fabric that is abrasion resistant and blocks the wind. Printed in MultiCam Alpine, it offers near IR suppression and the fabric is treated with a durable water resistant finish.

The system consists of Jacket with helmet compatible Hood, Pants and Pack Cover. I like the simple design, with single pass through access.

Features:
• Top has a full front zip and and helmet compatible, adjustable, stowaway hood.
• Top also offers bilateral, angled 10” pass thru pockets for easy accessibility to vest or kit.
• Pants have a stretch waistband, and 18” ankle zippers for easy donning and doffing over boots. Grommets at cuffs allow for tie down under boots.
• Pants also have rear pocket and mesh lined, front hand pockets.
• All zippers covered for added protection and to eliminate straight lines through your camo
• Pack Cover comes in three sizes – S, M or L – to fit most packs

These are already in service with 1st ASOG. Interested units and agencies can purchase these through ADS Inc.

At The Front – WWII Camo Wallet

Monday, April 17th, 2017

At The Front offers vinatge and reproduction WWII clothing and equipment. One of their most recent projects was manufacturing WWII US military camouflage herringbone twill cloth. They are now offering these wallets in that pattern.

It’s a Men’s bifold wallet made using their reproduction materials. The body and main pockets are made from exact reproduction WWII US military camouflage herringbone twill cloth, reinforced with .75″ US military spec cotton binding tape in the WWII olive drab number 3 shade. Inside are two credit card/ ID pockets made from OD3 webbing.

Although the fabric itself is reversible, they offer a choice of Spring or Fall colors for the outer side of the wallet. (There was no way to make the wallets reversible.)

Assembled in USA with imported and American materials.

MD-Textil – Night Desert Camo Pouches

Monday, April 17th, 2017

While these are a one-offs, intended to show German brand MD-Textil’s laser cutting capabilities, it’s still cool to see pouches made in this US, 1970s-era Night Desert Camouflage pattern, designed to defeat night vision systems.
