ALL SKILL NO LUCK California Combat Hoodie Available for Pre-order

Friday, October 12th, 2018

The long awaited California Combat Hoodie from All Skill No Luck and Gripstop will open for preordering on Friday, October 12th at 0800 Pacific time.


These pullovers are the final result an on going collaboration, first spotted at SHOT show last January. “What initially started out as a sort of fun, one-off project just for the sake of doing it, quickly turned into a legitimate product because of the overwhelming interest and support we received.” Said Nate Murr, inventor of the Gripstop and other popular products manufactured throughout the industry. “When that many people surprised me, with such overwhelming enthusiasm for a modernized Baja hoodie…there was only one company I could think of that could pull this off with quality and style. I cold-called Aaron Russel at ASNL, and asked if he was interested. Aaron laughed and said that he was working on his own version, and that I had beat him to the punch! That wasn’t true, as Aaron had thought of a lot of the great concepts that we rolled into the final design.”

The collaboration started, but the hard part proved to be finding the proper material. There are only a handful of companies that produce the traditional fabric called “Jerga” Baja type garments are made from, and after months of extensively searching, All Skill No Luck located a manufacturer. The California Combat Hoodie is being made in Oceanside California, located just outside of Camp Pendleton. Between the Military and surf culture of SoCal, the team wanted to update the classic Baja hoodie for the 21st century and to appeal to all fans of the legacy design regardless of their walk of life. “Pockets are never a bad idea. Look, men generally don’t carry purses. Carrying a backpack everywhere is annoying. We have a limited amount of pocket space as it is, which is consumed even faster if you carry a gun, spare mags, light, TQ, etc. It doesn’t matter if you CCW or not, you have to carry your gear somehow. The more pockets, the better!” Nate Murr explains. “We wanted to give the garment flexibility for that, regardless of how you intend to wear it. It could be skating in the city, riding your motorcycle, hiking in the woods, trailing a suspect down a busy street, or laying justice down on a cold desert night 7,000 miles from here. It has the features to do it all, and carry it all securely.”

The Features:

-100% authentic, Traditional Jerga fabric and pattern.
-Handwarmer pocket.
-Velcro lined, securable Kangaroo pocket for a 3 cell M4 mag insert.
Pocket can also used to organize and hold other gear, such as a pistol, radio, medkit, etc. when used with other industry common hook-backed pouches.
-Small Anorak style pocket located high center of chest.
-Two sleeve pockets with easy to remove external loop velcro if not using IFF markers
-Generous cut hood for use over other headwear
-Internal loops to attach a concealed cummerbund for carrying heavier loads in the Kangaroo pouch.
-Designed by veterans, Made in America.
-Introductory price of $80.00

All Skill No Luck x Gripstop Collaboration – California Combat Hoodie

Saturday, September 1st, 2018

We showed a sneak peek of the California Combat Hoodie around SHOT Show and All Skill No Luck informs us the fabric will be here soon.


The concept came from our friend Nathan Murr, inventor of the Gripstop.


Remember, these are prototype photos. Hopefully, they’ll clean up a few tells and turn this into a true Grey Man garment.

ALL SKILL NO LUCK team ups with Nate Murr to introduce the “California Combat Hoodie”

Friday, January 26th, 2018

We recently took note of the Oceanside, California based company ALL SKILL NO LUCK a few months back with the introduction of their popular flannel field and combat style shirts. The company has gained a lot of attention for its quality and designs, and are constantly working on bringing new trend setting garments to market. Nate Murr, known for his popular B5 Systems Gripstop, and other designs with Kinetic Development Group, seemed to be running parallel with his thought process.

ALL SKILL NO LUCK and Nate have teamed up to release the ultimate low profile Urban outwear garment, The California Combat Hoodie. The Hoodie currently features two spacious, velcro covered arm pockets to securely hold extra gear, and is made from a thick, durable synthetic blend. This pullover warming layer currently exists in prototype form, and has already been spotted around SHOT Show.

The hoodie captures the warmth and style of the classic “Baja Hoodie” worn by surfers, college students, etc. and has been a pillar of southwestern cultural attire for decades. The company plans on refining the design further, and releasing a production version in a few months. We are told that the final version may have a hidden Kangaroo pocket behind the hand warmer pocket in the front, a small center of chest “Admin” pocket high center of the chest in the Anorak style, and other small useful features incorporated throughout the garment.

Stay tuned for updates, and let them know what features you would like to see included in the comments below.

All Skill No Luck Wants Your Opinion On Green Flannel

Friday, October 20th, 2017

Last weekend, All Skill No Luck’s Flannel Combat Shirts went viral. Their Red and Ocean colors immediately sold out and they started getting requests for Green. In response, they created this rendering.


They can do it, but it will be a special run with a 1000 yard minimum from the mill, which works out to a half ton in weight, thousands of dollars in fabric and who knows how much in shipping. That also means that they will need to sell 350 flannels making it a pre-order item.

I’ll throw in one piece of feedback with this article. Right now they are using Fruit of the Loom 100% cotton T-shirts as the base. There are a lot better choices of fabric out there. With the new color, it’s time to consider a new base fabric.

Flannel Hits A Whole New Level

Sunday, October 15th, 2017

All Skill No Luck has taken Flannel to a whole new level; Field and Combat Style Shirts.

Called the NTCHWAIDUMELA and NTCHWAIDUMELA STV (Shed The Vest), they are made from cotton flannel, so no FR properties. But, think of the comfort.


They feature inboard tilted chest and bicep pockets as well as covered buttons, in Red or Ocean color.
