It’s finally here! The 2023 OTTE Gear x Bawidamann 2023 Narcos Playa print which recalls the 80s Miami Drug War, a gritty fight between the US and the cartels.

Sneak Peek – Soteira Systems Prototype SERE Garment

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2023

A few months ago I started following an IG account promising to introduce a “SERE Garment” or clothing you could wear to help conceal aids to escape and recovery.

Soteira Systems recently gave us a sneak peek at what they are up to. What you see is white in color to show off detail, but the final product will be all black. You can see the anti-chafe panel between the legs, some of the concealments and their subdued logo. An important caveat is that this is predicated on a captor who will not strip search you. If you run across that, you won’t be able to smuggle anything, if given a thorough enough search.

They say the final garment will have slightly longer legs, larger waistband concealments, and a larger internal stash pocket.

SOF Week 23 – Crye Precision G4 Aviation Uniforms

Monday, May 15th, 2023

Although Crye Precision‘s new G4 Aviation Uniforms were unveiled during SHOT Show, they’ve been working on them for awhile. In fact, they’ve already started delivering them to the SOF aviation unit they developed them for. Like with all things Crye, once other units saw them, they had to have them as well meaning these are becoming quite popular.

Since the uniform is intended to be worn for flight duties, it’s made from the same FR Commando Twill used in the FR G4 uniforms.

While outwardly looking like the G4 uniforms they are based on, you’ll find some aviation unique features like dual entry shoulder pockets, center front zipper and loop placement to accommodate ID. The pants also have a double seat, oversized patch pocket on the calf, zipper pulls, vertical zippered entry on thigh pockets, and a multi-tool pocket.

The G4 Aviation Uniform is offered in both Combat and Field cuts in male and female fits, in MultiCam, Black, and Ranger Green.
