Oxcart Shadow Project

Monday, November 6th, 2017

We’ve featured Oxcart several times. They are an American made clothing manufacturer who have partnered with several companies in the tactical industry. The Shadow Project is their latest effort.

Like the name implies, they are using all black fabrics paired with MultiCam Black NYCO.


They currently have jeans, hats, and a limited edition leather backpack (No MultiCam Black on this).

The backpack is made by a company in San Diego called Abscent, who specializes in odor absorbing bags and materials. It fits a DFNDR plate perfectly.

Oxcart Update – Introducing The V2CS

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

We recently wrote about Oxcart’s V2 Jeans. Apparently, they’ve sold well.  So well, that sizes 32 and 34 are currently sold out.

Oxcart just sent us an update that they are introducing a new version of the V2’s that they’re calling V2cs (CS stands for color spectrum). It’s a finished garment that has been given a reactive dye bath which includes a silicone / enzyme treatment to give the pants a softer hand feel. The reactive dye baths also allow them to offer any color. The first color available will be Wolf Grey, but on a different quality stretch denim made by Cone Mills than the V2s. The V2CS are available in sizes 30, 36, 38, and 40.

Additionally, Oxcart gave us a sneak peek of something they’re working on. A SOF customer asked them to make a pair of V2s with a special pocket for a Phokus lowvis blowout kit. They ended up making two; one for him and one for a teammate.

This is a short text note from the tester (in Grey) to Oxcart (in Blue) about his experience.

Oxcart – V2 Jeans

Tuesday, September 13th, 2016

V2, or Version 2 is a low-visibility everyday wearing jean designed for concealment and comfort. The jean was developed based on Oxcart’s 10 year experience working with denim in the apparel industry.

Utilizing a fabric from Cone Denim of North Carolina, they cut and sew right in Los Angeles.

The mag pockets were designed in a way to sit more comfortably on the body while allowing persons to be in a seated position with materials in the pocket. The tactical jeans they had seen on the market utilize access through the back yoke but Oxcart wanted to step away from that as to not risk the sewing integrity on the back yoke or seat area. Their thinking was to allow the pocket it’s own structure for functioning.

The front thigh pockets are a cleaner version of a welt but work in the same manner. The depth will conceal a handgun magazine as well as small flashlights, knives and even Snickers bars.

Where the jean shines is in the stretch, mobility and comfort of the fabric characteristics.

The final process in making the jean is a rinse and enzyme treatment. The same type of process premium denim jean makers use for their high end jeans. The rinse will remove fabric shrinkage to size properly while the enzyme helps soften the fabric from it’s “raw” form. Additionally, the waistband is lined with MultiCam NYCO.

The intention of the jeans is everyday wearing while offering LE / Military / Civilian to utilize it’s features for range or field use.
