PDW Raider Field Pant NYCO+

Thursday, May 21st, 2020

Full Featured Field Pant in Ripstop Stretch, Made in USA


Prometheus Design Werx launches their best selling Raider Field Pant updated in their new stretch ripstop NYCO+ fabric. Built as an all season, rugged field pant, this style is a non-cargo design in a clean utility appearance, built for the outdoors and today’s active EDC user in mind. A total of 11 pockets to stash and organize as little or as many EDC items as needed. PDW upgraded their MILSPEC type NYCPO ripstop by adding a stretch fiber for unparalleled comfort and mobility in this type of utility wear fabric. Dedicated EDC Tool Pockets, dual no-twist custom made delta rings for keychain-carabineer clip points, 4 welt pockets and double layer articulated reinforced knees round out these pant’s features. Produced with industrial grade triple needle stitching on all major seams. Built to last in California, USA.

The Raider Field Pant NYCO+ is available in Transitional Field Green, All Terrain Brown, and Universal Field Gray.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:


“This is our best selling pant style since its debut. Updated with our new NYCO+ ripstop with stretch, this is in our opinion, the most comfortable field and utility pant made in a military type ripstop material available. The added stretch makes a notable level up in everyday comfort and extra range of mobility when on the go. NYCO ripstop is a good all season weight and can be worn year ‘round. Our well-tailored regular fit isn’t too slim or too relaxed. It’s a fit that can be worn for years to come and supersedes trends and puts its focus on purpose and utility. Our Raider Field Pant has been worn on just about every continent, by all types of users, on the trail, off the trail, down range, overland, on the job and off the grid. One of the best and few, great American made, everyday field and utility pants.”

The Raider Field Pant NYCO+ is available for now via their website, prometheusdesignwerx.com.

FirstSpear Friday Focus – Asset Technical Field Shirt

Friday, May 15th, 2020

Today we are getting the first look at FirstSpear’s all new color way on the Asset Technial Field Shirt. Originally available in Black and Sand, FS has rolled out an all new Commando green now in-stock. Aside from the new color the Asset has garnered serious attention within US Special Operations thanks to a long list of performance features, materials, and overall comfort.

The torso is constructed from FirstSpear’s proprietary ACM 100 Merino wool and is not only extremely light and comfortable but also does an exceptional job at wicking moisture and offers the naturally inherent antimicrobial and flame resistance of wool.

The sleeves and shoulder yoke are built with a highly breathable Para-Arimid that is double reinforced at the elbows offering impressive heat and flame resistance. FirstSpear used an anti-friction NanoGlide mesh in the arm pits to help keep you cool in the hottest environments.

Adjustable cuffs and generous sleeves can easily be rolled up. The torso is longer than usual to help keep it tucked in during long days and exaggerated movement. Bicep pockets and loop fields for IFF attachment come standard. The high collar helps to save your neck from sling rub. Like most FirstSpear products the Asset is 100% Berry compliant, made in the USA with USA Materials. In-stock and now shipping in Commando, Sand, Black/ Graphite.


Beyond Clothing – Modus Jacket; The Lightweight Adventure Soft-shell

Thursday, May 14th, 2020

This softshell is the KYROS version of the renowned Rig Light Jacket from Beyond’s AXIOS collection. While the AXIOS line is the USA-made collection that Beyond Clothing has been fielding for years in some of the harshest environments in the world, the KYROS collection was developed with their 20+ years’ experience but utilizes international trade-compliant sourcing. Each KYROS piece is a solution that works within the Beyond Layering System, performs in the mountains and wears in a way that will fit in on a city streets… at a more accessible price point than the Rig Light counterpart.

Great solution for late spring/early summer adventures when the temps are in that mercurial 45-75f range or you are heading to a little bit of elevation.

The durable 4-way stretch, double-faced nylon polyester shell protects you from the wind and rain while remaining breathable for moisture transport. The inner face of the fabric is bamboo charcoal yarn which is naturally antibacterial, antifungal, moisture wicking and insulating.

Secure zippered chest, bicep and hand pockets
Hook & loop adjustable cuff tabs
Brushed mesh hand pockets 
Chin zipper garage
4 colorways, with long sizes available

Beyond Clothing – Modus Jacket – $140
