Mojave Travel Shirt Now Available from Beyond Tactical

Friday, June 4th, 2010

Remember the Travel Shirt we wrote about last month? Well Beyond Tactical listened to SSD readers and is now offering it for order. Owner Scott Jones recently reminded us that he has been making tactical softshells since 2003 and the new Mojave Travel Shirt is the natural progression of this technology based on operational requirements. On top of that, it looks good. What’s more, Beyond Tactical products are Berry compliant and made to measure. Scott also told us to watch out for several other new products coming in June. Hopefully, this is the beginning of several new items that blur the lines between civilian and tactical.

The Travel Shirt from Beyond Tactical

Friday, May 14th, 2010

The last time SSD readers saw Beyond Tactical owner Scott Jones, he was featured in Penthouse magazine (for real). Last year, right before heading out to the ADS Warrior Expo he threw together the Travel Shirt which you can see in the photo. It is a waist length design with mandarin collar, chest and sleeve pockets made from a lightweight material. Apparently, he really likes it because every time I see him he is wearing it and the ADS Warrior Expo-West was no exception. I have been on him since I first saw it to spread the wealth and offer it for sale on the site. It has almost become a running joke between us but he said that if there is enough demand for it, he will add it to his catalog. So here it is. Interested parties should contact Beyond Tactical to order.

Beyond Tactical’s PCU Lvl 9

Make sure you ask them about their Travel Shirt which has been in development hell since summer.

More on PCU Level 9 – Well Sorta

Friday, September 11th, 2009

*Updated* I received a call the other day asking of I had seen the new Patagonia Combat Uniforms. I hadn’t and the last word I had received was that Patagonia was out of the contract game. But just when you think Patagonia has called it quits, they up and release new military products. Apparently, some prototypes of a hard shell were produced in Viet Nam and photos of this garment’s tag have shown up on the web incorrectly purporting to be from a Level 9 garment. But really this is just the tip of the iceberg. The plan is to develop an entirely new Berry compliant clothing system and most of it is already done. Apparently however, the combat uniform piece is still in development and won’t be the same as the PCU Level 9. The whole system is sort of a “Son of MARS” only leveraging the latest Patagonia technology. Prototypes of several of the pieces are floating around some of the units already so it won’t be long before we see photos.

Patagonia did participate in the development of the Level 9 component of PCU which is produced under contract by Ready One. Thus far, all currently issued PCU components carry a Patagonia tag and the new Level 9 garment will as well. Commercial versions of Level 9 are currently available from Beyond Tactical.

We are hoping to see photos soon and wondering how much they will go for once they hit eBay.

Thanks to Rob for confusing the hell out of me.

You Know You’ve Made It When Pt II

Thursday, July 16th, 2009

You get a write up in Penthouse magazine. Beyond Tactical received a mention in the Summer 2009 issue’s Take a Hike feature.

Beyond Clothing Glacier Shock Pants and Jacket

“If you plan on hiking, you’ll need more than a T-shirt and jeans. Even if you start off when the temperature is in the 90s, if you end up out on the trail after dark, it can get cold fast. The key to staying warm is dressing in layers, and this is one of the best options we’ve found for a top layer that’s windproof, highly water-resistant, and lightweight. It’s pricey, so if you want a more impressive recommendation, it’s used for Special Forces uniforms. Those dudes know survival gear. (Jacket: $264; pants: $126)”

PCU Alternate Source of Supply ADS

ADSBeyond Tactical

ADS and Beyond Tactical are proud to announce that they are beginning to offer the complete Protective Combat Uniform in the issue Ranger Green as well as Coyote. Available as an entire kit or as individual components, this is an excellent opportunity for units requiring PCU out of the procurement cycle as well as for units or individuals that wish to upgrade their current environmental clothing system. In addition to standard sizes, customers will be able to take advantage of Beyond’s custom sizing program. Originally conceived in the fall of 2001 by PM-SSS in order to satisfy an urgent need for operational clothing to combat the environment of Afghanistan, PCU is a clothing system consisting of seven levels used in concert with one another based on activity and environment.

Visual PCU Guide

ADS has gone one step further by developing an excellent DVD which provides an overview of PCU components and their use as well as some excellent background on the system’s design philosophy by the “Godfather” of PCU; Mark Twight. In concert with Kwikpoint, makers of the waterproof basic language guides currently in use in theater, ADS is offering a pocket users guide describing PCU components, environmental conditions and a wheel to help the user correlate components with conditions. This has been needed for a long time and is a must for even current users of multi-component environmental clothing systems.

Visual Users Guide - PCU

The user guide is available from Kwikpoint.

Look for a future article with more details on PCU.

Contact ADS or Beyond Tactical for more information.
