2UNDR Performance First Layer Men’s Briefs Partners With Provengo Bringing the Finest Fit and Comfort to American Men in Service

Friday, May 26th, 2017

Provengo announced it will be officially carrying 2UNDR™ performance first layer men’s briefs. 2UNDR™ features the unique and patented Joey Pouch™ construction to support your equipment in comfort and style. The innovative design elevates and separates a man’s most valuable assets to deliver the perfect fit while preventing unwanted skin contact.

The No-Drip-Tip™ material lines the #joeypouch of these performance first layers. Through a process called capillary action, the outer layer draws moisture off of the surface of the skin and spreads it across a large area. Meanwhile, the hydrophobic inner layer repels moisture away from the skin.


The pouch also delivers improved airflow keeping you cool when involved in strenuous activity, on an assignment on tough terrain or simply going about a busy day. This combination of pulling and repelling mixed with premium breathable design accelerates evaporation keeping you dry, cool and comfortable. These briefs are offered by Provengo in three key models, Swingshift™, Dayshift™ and Powershift™. All feature the most advanced construction techniques and materials, and come in 3”, 6” and 9” leg lengths to accommodate all fit preferences you desire.

At the top of the market due to design, is the Powershift™. This style comes in 90% quick dry poly, that is moisture wicking and has 10% elastane for a compression like feel and fit.


The Swingshift ™ offers those same fit features but utilizes the finest quality lenzing modal fibers, high quality stitching, and a nylon non-roll waistband.


The DayShift™ comes in a blend of modal and cotton; threads that were made for each other. The result of this partnership is the familiar texture and breathability of cotton, combined with the silkiness of Modal. The day shift is perfect for the everyday hustle. Paradise, in your pants.


In making the announcement, Provengo President Chris Barbarino said, “We’re delighted to finally bring this fantastic product offering to provengo.com. By carrying 2UNDR, we will be able to offer the finest in fit and comfort in a men’s brief with exclusive discounted pricing to our military and veterans.”

2UNDR has been featured at over 2500 golf courses nationwide, select Sporting Goods, and Golf retailers, in addition to over 50 specialized technical running shops in the USA. One of their Military and Professional Ambassadors is Dr. Reginald O’Hara, PhD., is an Exercise Physiologist, who has worked in training with SOCOM and many other active military and retired veterans. Dr O’Hara also works for the U.S. Airforce and a former Special Operations Army Ranger, and is based at Wright Patterson Air Force base in Dayton. He is a dedicated ultra-marathoner and typically runs 4 to 5 100 mile races annually, to support all divisions of the Armed Services.

I have found these and they are the only one I will use. I highly recommend 2UNDR™. They allow me to focus on my running goals!”


2UNDR™ has an extensive list of ambassadors from professional golfers, NFL Players, MLB players, NHL players, World champion motocross riders, and many coaches and player in over 25 NCAA Major colleges, it’s almost like 2UNDR has become the preferred underwear of anyone that desires an upgrade in #asset management.

Colt Welcomes Wyatt Gibson to Team Colt

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (May 23, 2017) – Colt, the historic class-leading designer, developer, and manufacturer of firearms, is pleased to announce its sponsorship of national shooting sports competitor Wyatt Gibson. Gibson has a successful track record in many shooting disciplines, and already has a full schedule ahead with Team Colt in 2017.


“Wyatt is an exceptional young talent,” said Paul Spitale, SVP at Colt. “His drive and determination exemplifies what the shooting sports mean to Colt. He sets a great example for young folks who want to get into competitive shooting, and we are so proud to bring him into the fold here with Team Colt.”

Gibson was introduced to the firearms industry at a young age by his father and grandfather, and helped as they tested target designs for MGM Targets. From there his love, familiarity, and proficient with firearms grew, and he had competed in his first USPSA match before the age of seven.

“Competitive shooting is in my blood,” said Gibson. “I grew up with firearms, and I pour my time, effort, and heart into the shooting sports. When Paul and the folks at Colt offered me the opportunity to shoot for Team Colt I was honored. My defensive pistol game is really strong thanks to my 9mm Gold Cup® Trophy – the way it sits in my hand is amazing. And I’ve relied on Colt AR-15® platform rifles for much of my shooting career. Nothing beats the real thing!”

Gibson regularly competes on a national level in 3 Gun competitions and occasionally in United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) action pistol matches. His recent wins include: MGM Ironman 2015-2016, Northwest Multigun Challenge 2016, Surefire World Multigun 2016, and 3 Gun Nation Texas Regional. Gibson placed third overall on the Sportsman Channel program The Big Gun II: Sin City.

Stay tuned to Colt for more info on Wyatt Gibson’s upcoming matches and appearances.

Polaris Wins Canadian Special Forces Ultra-Light Combat Vehicle Contract

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

MINNEAPOLIS (December 20, 2016) — Public Works and Procurement Canada (PSPC) has awarded its Ultra-Light Combat Vehicle (ULCV) contract to Polaris, following an open and competitive bid process. The $15.5 USD million contract includes DAGOR vehicles, maintenance and operator training, spare parts, and the option for additional vehicles (at an additional cost) to meet the requirements of Canadian Special Operations Forces Command (CANSOFCOM).

Ultralight ground mobility is at the forefront of many military’s needs – especially the Canadian Special Forces, which can deploy on extremely short notice for counter-terrorism operations and other time-sensitive Special Operation Forces (SOF) missions. The DAGOR ultra-light combat vehicle is just as deployable and was designed to be modular and light-weight to support a variety of expeditionary missions.

The ULCV contract is structured to provide CANSOFCOM with a custom vehicle to meet Canada’s unique SOF requirement. The flexible DAGOR platform will undergo engineering and mission configurations to incorporate new features and capabilities, including redesigned payload configuration, weapons mounts, electrical system improvements, and integrated communication systems. The final vehicle configuration, testing, and production of the ULCV will be a collaborative effort with CANSOFCOM.

“We are extremely pleased to have won the contract following the competitive process to provide our DAGOR vehicles to CANSOFCOM as this major international program award builds on our strong current domestic base,” said John Olson, PhD, vice president and general manager of Polaris Government and Defense. “We are proud to partner with the Canadian government and industry to deliver this ground mobility capability and the lifecycle support to smartly sustain it. Our program management, engineering, operations, and logistics teams are looking forward to working closely with our Canadian customer.

Olson added, “We greatly appreciated PSPC’s professionalism and found the ULCV procurement to be rigorous, thorough and well-executed as they delivered clear requirements, were extremely responsive to industry questions, and crisply executed the entire effort.”

With seating for up to nine, DAGOR comprises the optimal balance of rapid air transportability, payload capacity and advanced mobility. DAGOR gives an advantage back to dismounted warfighters, allowing formations to move faster, carry more and significantly reduce combat fatigue. And its weight and size allow it to be internally transportable on a variety of in-service aircraft, including CH-47 and C-130.

Polaris Government and Defense vehicles deliver a coveted combination of deployability, versatility and off-road mobility, forged from more than 60 years of off-road vehicle experience that is simply unmatched. Vehicles include the rugged Sportsman MV 850, the modular and nimble MRZR, and the DAGOR, which expands upon the range, payload and off-road mobility of any previous tactical off-road vehicle. The enhanced tactical mobility provided by Polaris Government and Defense gives an advantage back to dismounted troops, allowing formations to move faster, carry more and significantly reduce combat fatigue. Polaris FSR support is scalable worldwide and includes military vehicle training, service and maintenance. It also can be supplemented internationally through the Polaris network of distributors. And because Polaris vehicles are in service throughout the world, there is a high degree of interoperability and commonality among U.S. and allied forces.
