PDW Introduces New Fall/ Winter AG Watch Caps and Cashmere Shemaghs

Sunday, October 22nd, 2017

Prometheus Design Werx is continuing the rollout of their new Fall/ Winter products with the addition of the AG Shemaghs and AG Watch Cap made from cashmere. Don’t let the choice of material fool you. Their cashmere combines great insulation properties combined with next to skin softness.

The Heather Charcoal Gray (Shemagh) and Black (Watch Cap) will be offered on October 25, 2017. The other colors will be released in pairs the following two weeks with the DRB Editions last.

Yes, that’s the geometric Camo pattern Patrick has been teasing since his TAD days. Hopefully, we’ll be seeing more products in it.

Prometheus Design Werx – Spectrum Hoodie

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

Performance, Technical Hoodie in 4-Way Stretch Polartec for 3+ Season Use

IMG_4826

New for Fall 2017, San Francisco based specialty adventure products group Prometheus Design Werx introduces their Spectrum Hoodie. This design is a high performance, 4-way stretch, technical full zip hoodie in a streamlined and minimalist design which will find itself practical, useful and versatile in a wide variety of uses cases. Equally at home on a cool, crisp morning at a challenging red point, piloting your rig over the Rubicon, a last minute red eye to Tokyo, to a day of sampling food trucks. Wear over a tee, or easily under a shell or down sweater. Made with a Polartec Power Stretch Pro the Spectrum offers unparalleled freedom of movement, a smooth face with DWR to shrug off the damp-sprinkles, and a lofted fleece inner face that is exceptionally comfortable. Designed and built in CA, USA.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“We wanted the Spectrum Hoodie to be one of our most versatile mid-layers. That’s where the style name is drawn from; a hoodie that could function and operate in a wide spectrum of conditions. One that you could grab-and-go in 3+ seasons and for almost any activity. This hoodie really moves with you, the technical performance of the Polartec Power Stretch Pro is some of the best we’ve ever come across and used. The Spectrum Hoodie is our favorite travel hoodie due to its versatile weight, exceptional comfort, and clean-neat appearance. We specially cut the MLH hood so it could be pulled over the eyes to block light so you can catch a cat nap when you’re on the fly. We went back to the drawing board when it came to looking at how to newly design a cuff with thumbholes, and created new pattern which is not only draft resistant but is more comfortable and sleek. The Spectrum also features 4 pockets, dummy cord keepers, smooth flatlock stiching, and double elbows on high wear points. This hoodie is for anyone who’s actions speak louder than words.”

The EDC Pant will be an evergreen seasonal style for Prometheus Design Werx. They will be available in their proprietary Guide Cloth in Dark Arid Earth and Wolf Gray.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“We wanted to create a highly versatile and easily worn pant style, that we would wear every day on and off the grid. The single most noted feature of our EDC apparel series is the impressive stretch and comfort of our proprietary Guide Cloth. This is not a mass volume, compromised, lowest common denominator product. No corners were cut, no corporate budgeting committees to answer to, we stuck to the intelligent features we wanted, and custom made the best in class materials to make this pant. You will not find superfluous details or unnecessary affectations in outcome of our design process in crafting these pants. Each feature and component serves a purpose for utility, versatility, movement, and comfort. The industrial grade construction was a bit overkill, but hell, our office is a metal shop. These pants are cut and sewn locally in CA with skilled labor being paid a living wage. The EDC Pant will probably be the most comfortable, good looking, feature rich pant you’ll have in your apparel line up.”

The PDW EDC Pant in Guide Cloth will be available for purchase in two colors on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at 12:00 noon PDT via their website, prometheusdesignwerx.com.

Prometheus Design Werx – Badger Framelock Folder

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

This is the new Badger Framelock Folder from Prometheus Design Werx. It features a V-cut blade seat channel, glow in the dark dual thumbstud inlays, and proprietary internal lockbar pocket.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“The PDW Badger™ folder design is an instantly recognizable tool aesthetic and characteristic of our Founder-Chief Designer’s lifelong design ethos. This folder is inspired by and takes its design cues from the tried and trued millennia old spear point blade silhouettes, to the tapered capsule shapes, streamlined arcs, and the purposeful fluting and texturing of the modern machine age. Many of this design’s details will only be noticed after the knife has been picked up and handled in person. The lock bar ‘pocket’ is a new approach in creating the relief needed for the ‘lock bar’ for folding knives of this type. Our signature PDW glow-in-the-dark thumbstud inlays provides just an extra bit of visibility if the knife is every dropped in the dark and easier to spot and recover. Extra chamfering and 2-piece handle construction with integrated backstrap jimping required extra time on the mill, but all add to a greater whole. The Badger™ was designed to be as a stout, compact, yet elegant cutting tool, ideally suited for EDC, and for any discriminating user who prefers a smaller folder footprint.”

Prometheus Design Werx – Rapide Field Short

IMG_1976

Prometheus Design Werx introduces the Rapide Field Short 5050RS for the start of the 2017 Summer Season. These are the one wilderness grade, expedition capable, all around outdoor short that will tackle any land-based adventure.

IMG_1971

Ultra clean, purpose driven design and styling will confidently take you from trekking to the top of a mountain peak, discovering a mysterious desert ruin, to sharing your tales of adventure with new friends in a hidden tavern. Utterly functional design to industrial work wear grade construction and bespoke tailor level detailing makes these the one field short to rule them all.

These are a best in class, field and utility short for exploring the wilderness, use on expeditions, overlanding to warm weather camping and the workshop.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“We set out to make the finest, modern field and utility short for the discriminating and demanding adventurer. The one outdoor short the user would go back to again and again. The MILSPEC 5050 NYCO is not bulky or too heavy yet is robust and rugged enough to last season after season. The cut suits most body types and the leg hits right above the knee for ease of movement-bending-scrambling on the trail but long enough to use with any climbing and rap harness. Our new horseshoe gusset pattern gives even more range of movement while being active. Like our other CORE-Line apparel styles, the Rapide Field Short is an apex apparel style and uses best in class US production quality. The highest single cost component in the production of this short, is skilled US labor. There are 20 years of performance apparel design study and experience behind these shorts. Followers of our design ethos have been in some of the world’s most wild and dangerous places, and require apparel and goods that perform superbly and can be relied on. We believe we built the finest American field and utility short available today. Overbuilt, packed with functional design details and features, our core customers are men of capability, detail, confidence, and discriminating taste who understand what goes into our goods. The outcome of this design created a clean styling that is easily paired with a tee, flannel or technical fleece. To our amusement, we’ve even had numerous bespoke suit tailors comment how impressed they have been with our functional apparel styles. These shorts are intended to be the one all-rounder style that can be used over and over for the field, for adventure, for expeditions, chaotic travel to street and warm weather work wear.”

The PDW Rapide Field Short 5050RS is a part of their Built in USA CORE-Line of products by Prometheus Design Werx. Available in Dark Arid Earth, Dark Leaf Green, and Machine Mineral Gray.

Prometheus Design Werx – Odyssey Cargo Short 5050RS

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Prometheus Design Werx’s Odyssey Cargo Short returns for this Spring/Summer in an updated fabric and fit. A feature rich, purpose driven, utility design, using tried and true USA MILSPEC 50/50 cotton/nylon ripstop fabric. Design for Adventure. Made in the USA. Built for remote, mysterious and dangerous places. Each feature and detail serves a purpose. Their industrial work wear grade construction methods use heavy duty nylon thread, triple needle stitching on major seams, and more bar-tacks to reinforce stress points than probably any other short being made today. These are best in class, cargo type field shorts with smartly designed functional details for the field, wilderness, expeditions, overlanding and camping.


The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“These cargo shorts have their DNA as our pants version. Updating our cargo shorts to the 5050 NYCO improves their durability, while adding slightly more heft to the style, but still well suited and comfortable in warm to hot field conditions. The fit has also been updated to match our pants so it’s a 1 to 1 match for sizing in the waist. The even and odd waist sizes allow our users a greater range of how they wish to wear our shorts. The Odyssey Cargo Short is an apex apparel style and uses best in class US production quality. The highest single cost component in the production of this short, is skilled US labor. These Odyssey Cargo Pants are built with 20 years of performance apparel design experience behind them. Longtime followers of our design ethos have been in some of the world’s most wild and dangerous places and require apparel and goods that can be relied on. We were uncompromising in the building these shorts. By all accounts they are overbuilt, but we know our most perceptive customers appreciate this aspect. Our core customers are men of capability, detail, confidence, and discriminating taste. There are numerous other options available on the market from other domestic to offshore manufacturers, but if a discriminating user is looking for a top tier US made cargo short using US materials with smartly designed, practical features, this is a product from our brand that stands out and we are again proud to offer. These are utility shorts favored by a core group for the field, for adventure, for expeditions and chaotic travel. Every single component, fabric and piece of hardware in these shorts is custom made to meet our requirements and specifications.”
