PRSM will be the last chapter of designing and developing low vis apparel, specifically low vis pants. The PR01 pays homage to, but redefines all the other styles I’ve designed and produced over the past 4 years. (V2 / V2X / SD1) As the original owner and founder of #brandwedontspeak, my goal is simple, to pick up where I left off. If you know the history of (V2 / V2X / SD1) then you know who PRSM is.

PR01’s are now open for pre-order and are currently in production.



VERTX Announces New Addition To Low-Profile Apparel

Paratus Hoody Expands EDC Ready Outerwear Offering

Cincinnati, Ohio – Vertx®, a leading manufacturer of low-profile tactical apparel and accessories, is excited to announce the launch of the Paratus Hoody. From a mountain trail to trailing a person of interest, the Paratus blends into its surroundings as well as it mirrors the wearer’s movements and activity level. Whether it’s deployed as outerwear or under a shell jacket, the Paratus can be worn almost year-round and is indispensable for changing up appearance and silhouette. Available in three subdued colorways, Blue Surge, Canopy Green and Tarmac, the Paratus is now available online at vertx.com and in-store. Customers can find their nearest dealer using the Vertx® store locator at vertx.com/store-locator.

“We are always striving to continue to add new and innovative pieces to our lines,” said Denny Bogard, GM/VP of Vertx. “The Paratus does just that. On the surface it fits the bill of your classic pullover hoody, but underneath it’s built with the features our end-user needs to carry comfortably whether it’s for work or everyday.”

Designed, cut and constructed for comfort with a regular fit that’s ready for active environments, the Paratus is resistant to wear to ensure long-term service without acquiring a ragged appearance. The internal AbrasionGuard™ lining protects the fleece shell from friction and snags and reduces printing from CCW and EDC gear. The hoody’s drop-back hem assures belt and lower back coverage during strenuous activities and its classic pullover design virtually eliminates drafts and provides added warmth whether it’s worn as the inner or outer layer. The large front kangaroo pocket is handy for keeping essentials at the ready. It also conceals a hidden zippered pass-through that provides discreet and quick access to critical gear located on the belt or mounted inside the waistband. The three-piece fitted hood has flatlock seams for maximum comfort and can be adjusted for the weather or to enhance comms concealment with a drawcord.

ThirdBlockGear – Advanced Field Sling Bag

Monday, August 19th, 2019

The Advanced Field Sling Bag was developed by a friend of mine for personal use while working initially overseas, and increasingly here at home. He wanted a bag that would keep his most needed equipment right at his fingertips.

His work requires the use of electronics and those often need to be recharged in the field.

Above is a layout of the kit he uses to teach classes.

And in case your interested in the types of electronics he uses, here are a couple of images of something he is currently working on.

But back to the ASF. Here are some key design points:
• Comfortable to wear for hours, in hot climates.
• Quick access to all your gear, without taking the bag off.
• Adjustable, ambidextrous, and quick-release design.
• Designed to fit power, communications, and sustainment gear.
• Extremely durable and rugged.
• 100% US Materials. 100% US manufactured.

I’ve had one for awhile and feel blessed anytime Jason honors me by allowing me access to his work. While it’s a very specialized piece of kit with a very specific layout, it has already been fielded to several organizations. Learn more at thirdblockgear.com/shop/afs-bag.
