Patagonia Men’s Fog Cutter Sweater

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

While you can still find the original British Commando sweater, it’s always cool to find other options. In this case, it’s Patagonia’s Men’s Fog Cutter Sweater.

Made from 70% recycled wool/25% recycled nylon/5% other fiber blend; the shoulder patches have a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to shed moisture. However, unlike the British sweater, the Patagonia version does not have elbow patches.

Offered in Glades Green and Mohave Khaki, sizes Small – 3 XLarge. Patagonia lists it as a relaxed fit.

Propper Releases RevTac Pant – Updates Classic Design

Monday, August 7th, 2017

St. Charles, MO — How do you take the function and form of a bestselling pant and make it even better? Introducing RevTac, an updated take on Propper’s flagship Lightweight Tactical Pant.

“We wanted to create a pant that didn’t scream tactical, yet offered the functional features everyone who wears tactical pants is looking for,” said Joe Ruggeri, Senior Vice President of Merchandising and Product Development. “Customers have been asking for a more streamlined look that didn’t sacrifice function, and we think RevTac delivers.”

Lightweight and durable, the new low profile RevTac comes in six colors of tough, yet comfortable 6.4 ounce 65/35 poly-cotton ripstop fabric – the same tried and true blend as the Lightweight Tactical Pant with Teflon™ soil and stain repellent – and features a streamlined appearance with rounded edges to look less tactical.

Low profile details include welt back pockets, two hip knife pockets, and rounded pocket flaps on the legs. For maximum function, ambidextrous pockets with internal dividers offer the space needed for mags, flashlights, and other essential gear. Comfort comes from a gusseted crotch and a slider waistband, while a hidden gripper strip keeps shirts tucked in to maintain a professional demeanor.

RevTac is available in men’s classic fit and women’s modern fit, both with the same great features and color selection.

Outdoor Research – Congaree Sun Hat

Monday, July 31st, 2017

During a recent trip in Western Virginia, I stopped at a local outdoor store where I found the Congaree Sun Hat from Outdoor Research.

I have no idea why they actually named it after a river in South Carolina, but it’s the spitting image of a military “Hat, Sun” or more popularly known, a boonie hat. It’s made from a very soft, 100% cotton ripstop fabric with stitched reinforcements along the brim.

I purchased the Charcoal (Dark Grey) model seen here, but it’s also available in Fatigue which is a Dark Green. The nonmilitary color, combined with the OR logo on the front, made it an instant addition to my spare set of outdoor clothes I keep in my trunk in the event I need to change into something more rugged and less than conspicuous than what I might be wearing at the time. Along with it, I keep a pair of old Salomons, a Simms Fishing Shirt and cargo pants. For instance, if I need to change a tire, or hike to a gas station, or home, for that matter.

Available in Small/Medium and Large/XLarge.

ORSM 17 – Darn Tough Vermont Introduces Graduated Compression Socks

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017

Coming Spring 18, and offered in a Berry compliant version, Darn Tough Vermont is introducing a sock with graduated compression in the upper. It starts at 15 mm hg at the ankle and transitions to 12 mm hg at the top, with an average of 13 mm hg along the graduation. In addition to their custom knit arch support, the sock is made from their lightest weight Merino Wool yarn. This is a performance sock and not a medical grade compression sock, but it's intended for long-term wear. It doesn't constrict circulation.

This is a developmental version; look for an all Black version in Jan 18.
