SOFIC – Wild Things Power Stretch Mountain Shorts

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

Wild Things took a look at their line to figure out areas where they could save weight and realized that thir long underwear pants didn’t really need to be long. They took Power Stretch material and created a knee length short that keeps your thighs warm but leaves your calves free from bulk. With so many wearing calf length compression socks, their calves are already covered. It also equals less weight and bulk in your pack. Brilliant!

NRA – Weather Wool ShirtJac

Sunday, May 22nd, 2016

It was great to see Weather Wool on hand at NRA. I’m a big fan of wool and they make a very robust product. Offered in their mid and full weight fabrics, the ShirtJac incorprates two chest pockets as well as slotted buttons.  The cuffs are a little long so you can pull your hands inside if needed but the dual button cuff has enough adjustment so that it won’t bother those with shorter arms.  Additionally, the bottom hem can be tucked in if needed.  

Available in sizes XXSmall – 5Xlarge in colors Black, Drab, Duff and Lynx.

Threadsmiths – The Cavalier Dress Shirt

Monday, May 16th, 2016


Threadsmiths is a company based out of Melborne, Australia which has developed a patented hydrophobic nanotechnology application that repels water and dirt. Early last year, we featured an article on their first product, the Cavalier T-Shirt. Since then, they’ve developed an addition to their product line, the Cavalier Dress Shirt, and sent SSD one for review.


The Cavalier Dress Shirt is a premium 100% white cotton dress shirt complete with mother of pearl buttons, and is treated with Threadsmiths patented hydrophobic nanotechnology application. Like the Cavalier T-Shirt, it comes in a fairly slim fit, so ordering a size up is recommended.


Also like the Cavalier t-shirt, the Cavalier Dress Shirt is great at repelling virtually any water-based substances. Seen above, we’ve covered the shirt in water, juice, and soy sauce. As a reminder, the coating does not work well against oil-based liquids.


The amount of fluid we covered the shirt in is extreme, and also required a couple of minutes in a hot shower to completely remove. Considering the amount of colored fluid that was on the shirt, that’s still pretty impressive, especially since a regular white dress shirt would be all but ruined by that point. Typically, an amount of water equivalent to a large bottle is all that is needed to remove a spill.


The benefit of a hydrophobic and stain-resistant white dress shirt speaks for itself, and we’re eager to see what Threadsmiths will be offering next. The Cavalier Dress Shirt is currently available in White, sizes XS-XXXL. Threadsmiths also offers the Cavalier T-Shirt in White, Grey, and Black for men and women.
