Prometheus Design Werx – Wilderness Utility Top Available For Pre-Order

Heritage Materials, Modern Performance Design, Made in the USA

Prometheus Design Werx is opening their new Wilderness Utility Top for Pre-Order. This signature design for is in a class by itself. If the spirits of Jeremiah Johnson, John Muir, and Hugh Glass inhabit your own. This design is crafted for those who are most at home in the forests, mountains, and wilderness. A fine blend between a tried and trued heritage wool Melton and a modern, function first utility design, the Wilderness Utility Top is a style that will be lived in and relied on year after year. Cut in a shirt-jac silhouette, it is a relaxed fit and designed to be worn like a light jacket over a light mid-layer. Or size down if to worn mostly with a base-layer like your favorite waffle thermal. Designed and made in California, USA.

The Wilderness Utility Top is a part of their Made in USA CORE-Line of products by Prometheus Design Werx, and will be available in OD Green and Charcoal Gray Heather.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“We see this as the modern mountain man shirt. While a very modern and functional design, it is made with a classic wool Melton. Wool has been the goto outdoor material for generations. It is naturally insulating even when wet, quiet, and no melt no drip. The overall cut and single side arm panels allows a great range and freedom of movement uncommon in wool style outdoor shirts. Ample, well placed pockets for storing any number of outdoor accessories, personal effects, and survival to camp items. 4 of the pockets have zippers for extra security, 2 additional chest pockets act as hand warmers, and are placed as to clear pack waist straps, utility to first-line belts. Double reinforced elbows, generous collar stands up to block wind, and the no-loss slotted parasmock style PDW buttons round out the Wilderness Utility Top. This is a PDW shirt that you can likely pass down to your grandkids. We’re going to wear the hell out of this top.”

    This is a great modernization of the original military soft shell jacket, the M-1951 Shirt, Field, Wool, OG108.

    I’m really digging that Hill People Gear style front pocket setup. It works extremely well all the way around.

    Am I the only one who doesn’t want a dry clean only field garment? And why is wool tagged as such?

    Its great looking. As much as I use and love modern materials wool remains my fav fabric. A jacket like this is very practical, and warm for either a stand alone garment or a layer
