Rocky S2V – Extreme Outdoor Gear

Friday, October 5th, 2012

One of the coolest thing I saw during August’s Outdoor Retailer Summer Market was the debut of Rocky’s S2V outdoor line. Made up of both clothing and footwear, the pedigree of the line follows Rocky’s S2V military boots. Rocky also invested in working with Mountain Shepherd Survival School‘s experts to integrate survival and recovery tools right into the gear.

Every piece of kit I saw at OR is well designed. I’ve been wearing a Center Hold wind shirt in Black as weather permits and I’ve got to say that I like it. It features a nylon shell with a gridded polyester lining. As you can imagine, it’s very soft and could easily be worn next-to-skin. Additionally, the underarms are mesh combined with a zipper that lowers to mid chest to avoid overheating. In addition to thumb holes for cold weather the single, zippered chest pocket incorporates a small internal pocket that holds a bright pink marker panel to help you get found. If I have any complaints it’s with the zipper as it is a fine tooth model and fouled a couple of times on my when I tied to close it one handed.

Make sure you visit the website and check out the entire line. I’ve got my eyes on a couple of the other garments for this Winter. Coming Fall 2012, www.rockys2v.com.

Mountain ShepHerd Survival School has teamed up with Rocky’s New S2V line to incorporate a real world survival ethos into the line.

Rocky sent two engineers to a private course to get a basic grounding in survival techniques and ever since the crew at Mountain Shepherd Survival School has been available to provide technical support throughout Rocky’s design process.

Rocky has incorporated the 7 survival priorities into their designs; Positive Mental Attitude, Wilderness First Aid, Sheltercraft, Firecraft, Signalling, Water Procurement and Food Procurement (in order of importance).

For example, this survival kit is called the Grenade and comes packaged with the new Rocky S2V Center Hold Windshirt.
