TD Gets New Arc’teryx Items in First

If you have been drooling like we have over the new Naga Hoody and Drac Jacket from Arc’teryx LEAF then fret not. You don’t have to wait any more. Tactical Distributors got them in FAST.

The Naga Hoody is available in Crocodile or the new Wolf color. It is a very interesting construction that is intended to be worn with armor or as a stand alone/layering piece. Of a modified Raglan construction, the body is breathable and the sleeves and hood are made from an abrasion resistant fabric. The sleeves are topped off with thumb loops for cold weather wear. Both fabrics feature a comfortable rear nap, just like a traditional hoody. It also incorporates a traditional polo-style zip up collar which is independent from the hood so that the neck can still be closed up even when the hood is down. Additionally, you will also note one flat chest pocket with an angled zipper. When I spoke with the guys at Arc’teryx at SHOT Show they let me know that this has an athletic cut so take that into consideration when ordering. And they weren’t kidding. I had to go up a size and it’s still snug.

If you could If you could use one word to describe the Drac Jacket it would be “Burly”. A common word in the ski industry, it is quite apropos here as well. But, in my opinion, it gives off an even more streamlined look than its predecessors the Bravo and Combat Jackets. It’s also warmer and this goes back to that Burly double weave fabric used in its construction. It features pit zips as well as two bicep pockets with Velcro fields for IFF as well as two zippered hand warmer pockets mounted low on the jacket in the traditional fashion. The cuffs incorporate die-cut laminated Velcro adjusters. Available in Crocodile and Wolf.
