10th SFG(A) 2020 TOP Images: Coming in at #6, SOF Fashion Sense

Saturday, December 26th, 2020

This is apparently an “aha!” moment for 10th Group, thy the posters on their social media are fans and not necessarily professional commenters.

The number of comments on the shirt this Green Beret was wearing were… Surprising. It’s good to see our audience has a fashion sense, but the more important thing to focus on is SOF Truth #1, “Humans are more important than hardware.”

Flex Tac – Flex Micro Chest Rig

Thursday, December 10th, 2020

Finally, the Gucci chest rig you’ve been clamoring for! Ok, truthfully it’s not Gucci; it’s Louis Vuitton, but same pedigree, right?

Anyway, the Flex Micro Chest Rig from Flex Tac is designed for when you just have to flex on ’em. Made of fabric with the premium fashion brand marking your girlfriend tries to browbeat you into buying for her, it’s still a fightin’ rig at heart: made with Duraflex and ITW compatible buckles, nylon webbing and threads, it’s designed to interface with most industry standard plate carriers. Basically, this baby’s just as at home in a conflict zone as any Parisian runway, but that’s just being redundant.

This particular package includes:

  • 1x Micro Chest Rig Chassis W/ “H” Harness and 1′ waist strap
  • 2x Left & Right Wingman Pouch
  • 1x Lower Abdomen Utility Pouch
  • 1x 3 Cell 556 Elastic Insert
  • 1x 2 Cell 9mm Insert
  • Also, we feel it’s important to address this: calling this rig Gucci was half-right, because you’re not just stuck with LV fabric… you can also pick either Gucci or Burberry if Louis Vuitton just ain’t your thing.

    Made to order with a 3-week lead time.

    You can pre-order your own Flex Micro Chest Rig at flextac.myshopify.com/collections/chest-rigs/products/flex-micro-chest-rig-pre-order.

    Checkered Chest Rig

    Saturday, January 4th, 2020

    After our recent story about the Mixed Media Utility Vest, we realized these fashion pieces are quite popular amongst readers like tylerc. So when we ran across this chest rig, it was an automatic share.

    This chest rig is “perfect for a hike or music festivals” where you might need quick access to your snacks. Made from 100% polyester, it features hook and loop closures. Although we don’t have good photos of the rear, it is adjustable.

    What’s Old Is Trendy Fashion – Landlord Mixed-Media Utility Vest

    Wednesday, November 6th, 2019

    Hip Hop fashion brand Landlord has created this abomination, their “Mixed-Media Utility Vest”
    Which is obviously based upon the US Issue Tactical Load Bearing Vest, originally designed in the 1980s.

    ETLBV

    Apparently, designer Ryohei Kawanishi had the idea to make a Beige/Burgundy/Teal version of the TLBV in Houndstooth weave Wool and Nylon mesh, set off with Gold-tone hardware. At least he went with the more modern Enhanced design with mesh panels. Imagine the heat from all of that Wool.
