FirstSpear Friday Focus – Advanced Clothing Materials – Beanie & Neckie

As we recently mentioned, FirstSpear has been hard at work developing an American Wool line. They are calling this new addition to their catalog, FirstSpear ACM – Advanced Clothing Materials.

It consists of three different weights which incorporate 100% USA Merino wool. It’s harvested from sheep out West and milled into a proprietary blend which capitalizes on Merino’s naturally occurring properties, all without the itch. What’s more, it’s Made in USA, so it’s a great option for US military buyers looking for Berry compliant, performance wool.

The first items in this series are Beanies and Neckies featuring flat seam construction and low profile pile areas to attach IFF. Made from FirstSpear ACM Base 100, they are offered in four new colors: Sand, Charcoal, Heather Grey, and Commando.



Even more technical apparel items are coming soon, featuring ACM Base, ACM Mid, and ACM Warm from

    So, I’m supposed to wear the necktie with a suit in a business setting?

    It’s “neckie” not “necktie”.

    FS is going to bankrupt my ass! I have a ever growing wish list going on there

    Awesome to see them continually diversifying the product line.

    Small suggestion, start thinking discrete / no external brand logo. A huge spear head logo, with a known company that caters primarily to MIL/LE brings unwanted attention in low key use, and sometimes violates uniform policies for duty use.

      This. Their branding is so damn obnoxious. I asked them over the phone if they’d consider toning it down and they said no.

      They even cut out the outline of their logo into the velcro fields on their jackets ffs.

    Is the product name a reference to the g/sqm?

    Man, I love most of First Spear’s stuff, but they simply cannot resist the urge to put Velcro on absolutely EVERYTHING can they?
