White Out Overwhites from Wild Things – The New Heat for the Snow

Travel to Vail, Colorado and you’ll find a 13’ tall ‘Ski Trooper’ monument honoring the formation of the Tenth Mountain Division. Decked out with skis and old-school Overwhites – the Ski Troopers of the Tenth, and the Finnish that inspired them, might be seen as founding fathers of Overwhites in the military.

And if the Tenth represented the introduction of Overwhites to the military, it could be said that 1969’s ‘Where Eagles Dare’ and an Overwhites clad Clint Eastwood was Hollywood’s introduction of Overwhites to the masses.

Fast-forward: times have changed, and so have White Out Overwhites®. Still a favorite with select military units, as well as Hollywood, Overwhites provide concealment when the snow flies – deployed, or on the screen.

 

When there’s a need for Overwhites today, military units, the brands and community that support them, as well as Hollywood, all call Wild Things:

Wild Things White Out Overwhites use a functional and durable near-IR treated 70-denier nylon in MultiCam Alpine for lightweight, low bulk, and low visibility. This both blocks the wind and provides a durable water-resistant layer in your kit.

 

So when you’re moving into higher altitudes or across snowpack (or maybe in a Hollywood production), drop Wild Things a line: we’re here to help you choose the right layers to meet your needs and your budget – from base layers to White Out Overwhites – we can handle whatever weather Mother Nature throws your way. Fear No Element™.

    Cool gear. Tyvek spray suits also work well.

    • Lasse says:

      Why even wear clothing at all? Most Caucasians turn pretty damned white when cold enough. Saves you the money.

  2. Mike says:

    The “American Suppressor” pic (sixth down) looks like a different pattern. Not Multicam, but larger, square-ish/digital-ish blocks. Winter MARPAT maybe. This looks like the original pic.

    • Strike-Hold says:

      It is indeed the MARPAT-snow pattern. Wild Things also offers that camo scheme too.

    • Roy says:

      From personal experience I can advise that they are outstanding. Used last winter in milder conditions over a level III fleece and they provided the right amount of wind protection creating a warm, dry, light microclimate. Suggestion: order a size up for use over level seven parka and pants for the worst conditions.

  3. Grady Burrell says:

    We build in both patterns , and have won several USMC awards ,however the website only has Multicam Alpine. Contact [email protected] for more on MARPAT.

  4. Joe Thomas says:

    I cant unsee the backwards LCO in all of these photos.

  5. JS says:

    Bought a set last year, very pleased with the quality!!

  6. Ed says:

    Great movie, ‘Where Eagles Dare’!!! Saw it as a kid and was always fascinated with winter/mountain warfare!! Tele-mark/CC skiing YES, snow-shoeing with an 80lbs pack and full kit, NO!!!

    🙂

  7. Bruce says:

    “Where Eagles Dare” doesn’t feature over-whites, it has reversible white/splinter insulated parka and pants. Not all snow camo is “over-whites”.

  8. That Guy says:

    Wow! You want a cookie for that insignificant detail?

    Good catch, I probably couldn’t stay awake another night if that wasn’t called out!

    ????

    • Lawrence says:

      Well the jokes on him anyways because the suits used in the movie were not actual Wehrmacht reversible suits – they were post-war reproductions made for the movie and they were not insulated. The same suits were also used for a couple of scenes in “The Eagle Has Landed”.

    The real question is when are you guys coming back to ExpertVoice…?

  10. Mehmaster says:

    Who makes the chest rig in pic #3?

  11. iggy says:

    be wary of wearing a knuckle roaster like that on the move in snow. drop to the floor, it fills with snow, next time you put your hands in wets your gloves, hands colder than before. flip it up under the hem of your jacket if you dont want to take it off.
