FirstSpear Friday Focus – Hoodlum Hoodie

Friday, November 3rd, 2023

If you’re not already in the know, then we’ll introduce you to the Hoodlum Hoodie. When it comes to hoodies, one might think that they are all pretty much the same, but perhaps you’re looking for a hoodie that is the ultimate in both comfort and utility. Designed with the wearer in mind, this hoodie is made from a unique blend of materials that will quickly wick away sweat and keep you dry and comfortable. The Hoodlum Hoodie is constructed from ACM-MID 400, a blend of polyester and merino wool that is designed to be both lightweight and quick-drying. This makes it perfect for outdoor activities like hiking and camping in changing weather conditions. The exterior is 100% merino wool, while the interior is 100% polyester, which helps to wick sweat away from your skin and keep you comfortable.

The form-fitting hood and thumbholes in the cuffs give it a stylish look, while also providing extra warmth and protection from the elements. This hoodie is designed to be comfortable and stretchy, while still providing a close and snug fit. The full-length front zipper makes it easy to get on and off. The sleeves are long enough to provide extra coverage, while the thumbhole cuffs keep your hands warm without sacrificing mobility. The merino wool exterior is naturally resistant to wear and tear, while the polyester interior is designed to withstand repeated washing and drying. And with its form-fitting design, you won’t have to worry about it losing its shape or stretching out over time. Why settle for an ordinary hoodie?

FS Friday Focus – Vertical Envelopment Pack

Friday, October 13th, 2023

The VEP (Vertical Envelopment Pack) is a top-opening, roll-closure pack that is secured by tubes, making it an ideal pack for insertion and extraction operations. It can be mounted on FirstSpear Plate Carriers and flipped over the head for quick access to the contents inside. The front hanging feature also provides additional safety and comfort during infiltration when seated in armored vehicles and helicopters. This means that you can be assured of having quick and easy access to your gear, even in high-pressure scenarios.

Developed to “go forward from the objective rally point (ORP),” the VEP provides the assaulter with a unique capability which augments the full spectrum of modern combat operations. It provides the shooter with a clean shoulder pocket when shoulder firing a weapon, minimizing underarm “clutter”. This is especially important in tight and confined spaces where you need to be agile and have the ability to move quickly without any hindrance.

One of the most notable features of the VEP is its versatility. The pack and carrier can be removed and reassembled as one, making quick work for casualty inspection and treatment. Rapid jettison of FirstSpear Plate Carriers does not change with or without the VEP on. This means that you don’t have to worry about leaving gear behind or fumbling around trying to remove the pack in an emergency situation.

In terms of design, the VEP is a well-thought-out pack that is not only functional but also comfortable. It’s made from durable materials that are built to withstand the toughest conditions. The pack also features a range of compartments and pockets that are designed to provide ample storage space for all of your gear. Whether you’re a military professional or a prepared citizen, the VEP has everything you need to stay organized and prepared for anything.
