Army Announces Wear Of Coyote Fleece Cap, Can’t Find Photo Of One

Tuesday, December 10th, 2019

Sometimes you have to wonder what is going on. The Army put out a great story to explain that Soldiers can now wear the Coyote Fleece Cap with ACUs but for some reason could only find a photo depicting the Foliage version and old Black watch cap.

Tactical Distributors MTHD Clothing System

Monday, December 9th, 2019

Tactical Distributors has developed their own 5-level clothing system called MTHD.

MTHD [pronounced either by the initials or as the word “Method”] stands for “Mountain | Tundra | H20 | Desert”.  We like to think of it as a cross-category, tactical-inspired outdoor brand.  Our slogan is “technically advanced layering systems for global climate zones”.  We start with [L1] base layers and work our way up to [L5] weather-proof shells.  

While the clothing is manufactured in China to control costs, this direct-to-consumer line doesn’t skimp on the materials.

MTHD uses reputable partner brands like eVent® fabrics, Polartec®, Cordura®, Global Merino and other Bluesign® approved fabric and trim suppliers to build the product. They are not only the most technically innovative brands available but are also pushing the envelope in sustainability. 

Below are some examples of some of the clothing. The stuff I purchased is well made, comfortable, and the fit is true.

One of the cool features is the shoulder markings.

Currently, levels 1-3 are available. Get yours at www.tacticaldistributors.com/collections/mthd.

Parry Control Shorts

Sunday, December 8th, 2019

Parry Control Shorts are designed for grappling, but feature a 7″ inseam which may be kind of short for some of you who want to cover down to the knee. They are made from an abrasion resistant fabric with just a bit of mechanical stretch.

While they are also available in Black, Blue, and Yellow, the Tigerstripe pattern is my favorite.


FirstSpear Friday Focus – ACM MID 400 Shirt

Friday, December 6th, 2019

Today we are getting another look at FirstSpear’s USA Merino wool packages.

In previous weeks we saw the lightest weight package ACM-BASE 100 which FS uses in a variety of their lighter weight garments like the field shirt and beanie/neckie. Today we will be looking at the next level up, ACM-MID 400. What makes this merino package so unique is that it is a dual layer material, not a blend. Using a super fine polyester on the interior and merino wool layer on the exterior, this material combo does some very incredible things. When the user sweats or gets wet the poly layer will quickly wick away moisture from the body and transfer it to the absorbent wool layer.

Once the moisture permeates into the wool layer it allows the poly to dry very quickly which helps avoid the typical stink you find with other synthetic layers, additionally wool is naturally antimicrobial which makes it incredibly difficult for the garment to produce bacteria that causes odors in all synthetic base layers. Furthermore, once the moisture is absorbed into the wool layer it will keep the user insulated and warm even when wet. These features provide for exceptionally high performance garments using ACM-MID 400. Today we will get a look at one of the more popular garments using this dual layer material, the FirstSpear Mid Shirt.

The Mid Shirt is super tough and ultra soft with a 2/3 length front zipper that allows extra ventilation when you really warm up. The high collar keeps your neck covered and is great for when you are working with a sling.

Like most FS products the Mid Shirt is Berry Compliant (100% American Made with 100% American Materials) and is available in Black, Charcoal, Commando, Manatee Grey, and Sand.

Pairing its outdoor performance heritage with current style elements for a complete head-to-toe assortment, the collection includes apparel made with Polartec® Micro technical fleece as well as Polartec® Power Fill™ insulation, each made of 100-percent post-consumer recycled content.

Inspired by workouts in outdoor environments, the products utilize premium Polartec® Micro fleece for temperature-regulation in the body of the garments, with Polartec® Power Fill™ insulation in the hoods for added warmth and weather resistance in cold conditions, enabling the modern athlete to traverse both cityscapes and the great outdoors with equal confidence.

Engineered to provide comfort throughout a wide range of conditions and activity levels, premium 100-percent recycled Polartec® Micro fleece features a lofted structure with thermal air pockets to retain warmth without inhibiting breathability. Highly durable Polartec® Micro fleece is also hydrophobic and fast drying.

100-percent recycled Polartec® Power Fill™ insulation is engineered to provide maximum warmth without weight. The insulation is made of proprietary hollow fibers that are bonded together through a process that reduces environmental impact, while simultaneously providing superior insulating performance. Polartec® Power Fill™ insulation is also hydrophobic, fast-drying and highly compressible .

For women, the collection includes full-zip jackets (with and without a hood), a full-zip mock neck, and pants. For men, the collection includes full-zip jackets, reversible snap jackets, a crew sweatshirt, a 2-in-1 tee and pants. The pieces will retail for $55-120 (USD) and release globally on UA.com and UA Brand Houses beginning December 6.

Under Armour traveled to Iceland to capture the collection’s lookbook with distance runner, soccer player and nature enthusiast Angelina Krawczyk; softball athlete, model and Venice Beach, Calif. native Cailee Grayhorse; model and family member to basketball royalty Myles O’Neal; and former track athlete, celebrity stylist, model and artist Will Breveard.

New Low-Vis Twill Pants Feature Four-Way Stretch Comfort and Enough Pockets to Have a Home for All Your Everyday Essentials

Cincinnati, Ohio – Vertx® announces the availability of the new men’s Delta 2.0 Pant, which is sure to become an instant favorite for those who need flexibility, comfort and good looks whether they are working an extended shift or spending some downtime with the family. The Prepared Professional™ can be confident in his choice of the new Delta 2.0 pants as he loads the 12 strategically-positioned and thoughtfully-designed pockets with the assorted tools and devices he’ll need for any variety of assignments. These twill pants feature the unrivaled maneuverability of four-way stretch construction, and they pair well with the full range of Vertx shirts for maximum functionality and minimum signature on the street.

“We’ve taken everybody’s favorite pant and made it better,” said Denny Bogard, GM/VP of Vertx.  “Now you have more storage than ever with 5 more hidden pockets in our Delta 2.0.  We’ve adjusted our fit to a more athletic modern cut to help you blend into your environment, while adding things like mesh pocket bags for increased air flow and breathability. If you like our original Delta Stretch pants, you’re going to love our new Delta 2.0,” said Bogard.

Critical features that any user will appreciate include the assortment of pockets designed to accommodate the gamut of gadgets and tools they deem necessary to have on hand. Two deep front pockets are constructed with breathable mesh and have an internal lanyard with keychain anchor points. Knife notches keep your blade out of the way but always at the ready. A zippered security pocket is easily accessible at the top of the front right pocket opening. Two tool pockets are located at the thigh, just left of the side seams and are ideal for lighting and writing implements.

Pickpockets will be frustrated by the two deep rear pockets with unique wallet traps built in to ensure security of ID, passport and billfold. A pair of angled rear yoke pockets provide a snug and subtle location for smart phones, as well as back-up rifle mags. Judiciously-placed mini stash pockets are located on the inside for small items you may need to keep pre-loaded for emergencies. All 8 belt loops are fitted with a concealed DropLoop™ pass-through to allow discreet carry of flexible restraints or as reinforced attachment points for lanyards or other gear.

The 9.2-ounce 98% cotton/ 2% Spandex twill is enzyme-washed for a relaxed feel and streetwise appearance from day one. All heavy-wear seams are double-stitched and the full gusseted crotch allows a wide range of movement.

The new Delta 2.0 Pant is available in three colors- Tobacco, Shock Cord and Spine Grey- in a wide range of men’s sizes.
