PDW Stratus Down Hoodie

Tuesday, October 26th, 2021

State-of-the-Art Goose Down Jacket with Stretch Shell, Stitch-less Baffles and Hydrophobic Down

Prometheus Design Werx introduces their state-of-the-art Stratus Down Hoodie for Fall-Winter 2021. Featuring a unique stitch-less baffle construction to reduce weight and bulk, stretch 20D shell, and premium hydrophobic 800 fill power goose down. The Stratus Down Hoodie packs down small for trail to travel, has an excellent warmth to weight ratio, and cut to fit under outerwear. The Dupont treated, water repellent, premium 800 fill power goose down is 27 X more water resistant than untreated down, so this hoodie retains its thermal properties even if dunked or wet. Design details include an integrated stuff-sack storage camp pillow and detachable travel neck pillow, 4 pockets, internally routed bottom cinch, a cozy brushed hood liner, and a 20D nylon shell with stretch, DWR and Dupont Silvadur anti-microbial treatment.  

The Stratus Down Hoodie is a part of Prometheus Design Werx’s PRO-Line of technical apparel.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“The Stratus Down Hoodie is best in class. We sourced and used the best in this goose down mid-layer as a follow up to our hooded Tycho model from 2019. We custom milled this unique stretch nylon with stitch-less baffles for our shell, making this jacket one of the few on the market that possess these performance characteristics for unparalleled comfort, movement and reduction in bulk in any down garment. There is nothing lighter, warmer and more compressible than a down mid-layer. Down mid-layers allow the user to be unencumbered by excess weight; when not being used, they pack down smaller than any other technical mid-layer and can be easily stowed in a pack. We continue to use a Dupont treated goose down fill, which is 27 times more resistant to water. It will survive an accidental dunk and still insulate. While down jackets were never intended to be used as rain wear, the Stratus will allow the user ample time to shrug off the first minutes of rainfall to grab a waterproof shell to wear over and not lose its insulating capabilities. It’s the quality of make and design details that makes our goose down mid-layer a cut above the rest. We used premium 800 fill power goose down for its high loft, is RDS certified, a DWR shell with anti-microbial Dupont Silvadur treatment, cozy brushed tricot hood liner, and expanded capabilities with its integrated camp pillow and detachable travel neck pillow.”

Available in Mission Gray, and Outpost Blue.

The Stratus Down Hoodie will be available for purchase for $289.00 on Wednesday, October 27th, 2021 at 12:00pm PT via their website, prometheusdesignwerx.com.

Mission Essential Gear – Field Jacket

Monday, October 25th, 2021

Mission Essential Gear has introduced a new jacket they call “The Field Jacket.”

Traditionally, a Field Jacket is a shell garment and this is much more like the quieted jackets made out of poncho liners back in the 70s and 80s and worn stand alone or as a layering garment. Except, it doesn’t have a full front opening and this has knit cuffs and better pockets than you’d generally find in one of the old tailor shop specials.

Offered in XS-3XL, it’s colored Green and a good price. The Green makes it look like a Field Jacket Liner on steroids.

Thursday, October 7th, 2021

Irvine, Calif. (October 7, 2021) – 5.11, Inc., the global innovator of purpose-built apparel, footwear and gear, today announced the release of several exciting new products for Fall 2021 that are designed to meet the needs of outdoor adventurers, public safety professionals and tactical enthusiasts. The newly released items are available online and in-stores now.

“Our consumers seek to live the mantra of Always Be Ready at all times, whether they’re at work, in the field, or planning their next outdoor adventure,” said 5.11’s CEO, Francisco Morales. “The items we’re introducing this fall will help them do just that. Our team has strategically designed many of these products to serve our consumers, both in their personal lives and their professional lives.”

For those who desire to Always Be Ready in any and all conditions, 5.11 is introducing the Atmosphere Regulator System, a full, multi-layer clothing system designed for anything nature dishes out. The multi-functional layering system starts with the Tropos Base Layer Tight ($45) and the Tropos Base Layer Top ($45) that feature graphene yarn and flatlock seams for moisture wicking and anti-odor performance, along with all-day comfort. Next the Men’s Stratos 1/4 Zip ($70) and Women’s Stratos 1/4 Zip ($70) are technical and stylish all-season pullovers constructed with a durable polyester/elastane-blended fleece with moisture wicking, anti-odor and stretch properties, plus raglan sleeves to provide comfort and a full range of motion.

After the Stratos 1/4 Zip comes the Mesos Tech Fleece ($90), a full-zip jacket made with anti-piling micro-fleece and strategically placed N6-nylon overlays for extra durability. The Exos Rain Shell ($130) is constructed with a 20k waterproof and 10k breathable 2.5L ripstop fabric, then fully seamed-sealed to withstand prolonged precipitation from any storm. Finally, the Atmos Warming Jacket ($180) is a sturdy parka, designed to provide ultimate warmth and protection, in very cold temperatures. 170 grams of PrimaLoft® Black Insulation is wrapped inside a rugged 5k waterproof and 10k breathable nylon hardshell.

Beyond the Atmosphere Regulator System, customers can find a wide range of new products to meet their needs. The Lester Long Sleeve ($65) provides all-day comfort with chamois construction and added durability, with a double-layer yoke. It also features the customer favorite RAPIDraw™ snap placket, to keep EDC gear readily accessible, yet discrete at all times.

A tough and warm layer, with a classic buffalo-check pattern, can be found in the Seth Shirt Jacket ($100). It’s built with 100% cotton twill that’s brushed for softness, lined with fleece, and filled with 80g insulation in the sleeves, to be a go-to piece for any task.

The Louise Shirt Jacket ($100) offers a solid foundation of modern performance and functionality for female customers. Its 100% cotton twill construction creates durability, while a brushed finish provides extra softness. A fleeced-lined body, quilted taffeta in the sleeves, and Sherpa-lining make this layering piece warm and cozy on any chilly day.
