Camo Shawl-Collar Cardigan

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

The Camo Shawl-Collar Cardigan is part of Ralph Lauren’s ‘Denim & Supply’ line. It’s crafted from a 70% acrylic, 30% wool blend and colored in a woodland-esque camouflage pattern. Other features include a five-button front, rib-knit cuffs and hem, and rib-knit welt pockets at the waist. Not my cup of tea, but I’m sure somebody out there finds it appealing (and doesn’t mind the $185 US price tag).

Aegis Parka

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

The Aegis Parka is a garment designed by Nieuwe Heren to protect against urban pollution. The Aegis is made from Schoeller Ceraspace, a scally fabric far more abrasion and heat resistant then leather due to being made from ceramic particles. The inner liner consists of Schoeller PCM, a textile that contains millions of microcapsules filled with Phase Change Materials that balance out temperature extremes to achieve the wearer’s personal comfort climate. LEDs on the garment light up as a sensor measures hazardous molecules in the environment. An onboard respirator with an active carbon filter helps the wearer to breath in fresh air. The Aegis also filters the surrounding air as the suit is treated with a TiO2 (titaniumdioxide) solution which cleanses the air due to its photocatalystic properties.

Silencerco Announces SuperiorSilence.com

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Silencerco has just announced the launch of SuperiorSilence.com, where customers can currently shop for Silencerco, ‘Silencers Are Legal’, and SWR products. The site’s purpose is to allow dealers and customers to research Silencerco and SWR accessories to ensure the correct fit of pistons, thread adapters, and flash hiders. The site menu is organized by brand, so customers can easily determine what they need while a dealer locator helps customers to connect with a local dealer that carries Silencerco and SWR products.

In honor of Independence Day, ten percent of proceeds from sales made on SuperiorSilence.com through the month of July will benefit the veteran support network Gallant Few.

BBC Multi Camo Molle Jacket

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

What you’re looking at right now is the Billionaire Boys Club Multi Camo Molle Jacket. It’s decked out in khaki-ish PALS webbing with a green “Multi Camo” pattern, with two front square pockets and adjustable button closures at the end of each cuff. BBC Astronaut embroidered patchwork is present on the front chest and the left arm has a “BBC Astronaut BB” patch. It also costs 330 USD; need I say more?

Hat Tip: Upscale Hype, where you can also see pictures of Jay-Z wearing it at the fairly recent BBC Radio 1′s Hackney Weekend (if you’re into that sort of thing).

Tactical Duty Kilts Are Up For Pre-Order

Friday, April 27th, 2012

I’m sure plenty of you remember 5.11’s April Fool’s Day joke, the Tactical Duty Kilt. I’m sure you also remember that the response was so positive that they were going to do an actual run of the kilts. Well, that day has come, or at least the day to pre-order your kilt has come. They’ll be available in three colors: TDU Khaki, TDU Green, and Black, in sizes 28 to 54. Sadly, 5.11 isn’t accommodating the purchasing of MultiCam kilts (my preferred choice) at this time, but one can only hope.

Sophnet – Camouflage Knitwear

Saturday, February 18th, 2012

Japanese fashion label Sophnet has developed two pieces of Camouflage knitwear as part of their Spring/Summer 2012 line. The Camouflage Knit Cardigan has the blue sleeves and full-back camo while the Camouflage Crew Neck Knit features the single sleeve camo. Pricing for the Cardigan is ¥26,250 ($330 US) and ¥23,100 ($290 US) for the Crew Neck. If you ask me, the line needs more MultiCam and A-TACS, especially at that price.

SHOT Show 2012 – Wilderness Dreams

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012


I knew as I passed this company’s booth at SHOT that it would be among the highest levels of irresponsibility for me to not write something about them, right? Anyway, Wilderness Dreams sells lingerie, nightwear, and swimwear in three camouflage colors: Pink, Snow, and Mossy Oak Break Up. Seen above is the Baby Doll Set in Pink. They also have a smaller line, only three items so far, of menswear in Mossy Oak Break Up.


SHOT Show 2012 – Hazard 4

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Hazard 4 had an impressive showing of new bags, apparel, and accessories at this year’s SHOT Show.

Poncho Villa



The Poncho Villa is made from a water-resistant, breathable softshell fabric with 100% waterproof seams throughout. It has large Velcro panels on the front and back for agency identification, as well as smaller panels on the shoulders and head-back. Large perimeter grommets allow the Villa to be hung as a tarp. A generous fit easily encompasses packs, bags, head wear, and other gear, and side snaps and a front to chin zipper allow the wearer to close the edges and neck in severe weather. The entire poncho fits into its own vented front pocket for storage.

Colors: Coyote/Black


Chewbacca Hoodie

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

It’s Winter and (mostly) everybody loves Star Wars, so why wouldn’t there be a hoodie based on Chewbacca, Han Solo’s loyal Wookie partner? It’s made from 100% faux Wookie fur (polyester), with an embroidered ammunition sash. Sadly, the hood doesn’t feature Chewie’s likeness, but there’s a hat that fulfills that role quite nicely.

Hot Topic – Chewbacca Hoodie

This Is My Lightsaber

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

Designed by 6amChris and available on redbubble, this t-shirt print puts a Star Wars twist on the traditional Rifleman’s Creed while also featuring Darth Vader’s lightsaber and the Empire’s symbol. There’s also a Luke Skywalker/Rebel Alliance version, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Tactical Distributors Beanie And Arc’teryx Talos Deal

Friday, November 11th, 2011

The TD beanie is a one-size-fits-all fleece beanie. It features a front facing Velcro section with an M4 profile sewn in the middle for placing morale patches, and a Velcro strip in the back, for an additional patch/nametag. I have a sand one myself, and I have to say its quite comfortable. Also available in black.

Speaking of TD, they’re currently holding a special promotion for select Arc’teryx purchases. If you buy a Talos item, pant or shirt, you get a free pair of Arc’teryx Knee Caps in coyote. This is on a per-item basis as well, not just one per customer, so if you happen to purchase both a shirt and pant or two shirts and two pants, three of each, etc., you get an equivalent number of pairs of Knee Caps. If you’ve been holding out on getting a pair of Talos pants, now’s the perfect opportunity.


Couch Commando Drawstring Pants

Friday, October 14th, 2011

Made from French Twill cotton, the Couch Commando Drawstring Pants feature six large pockets, including two oversized gusseted cargos, a flat-felled inseam, clever stitching detail, and drawstring ankle cinches. Available colors include Black, Olive Drab, Desert Khaki, and the limited edition ‘Digital Camo’ which consists of a digital pattern mashed up with classic 8-bit imagery from games such as Pac-Man and Galiga. These are the perfect pants for everyone who defends the world from the Nazi commie robot zombie plague with nothing but a six pack of root beer, a comfortable recliner, and a game controller at their side.

G Weekend Worrior Camo Bikini

Friday, August 5th, 2011

It’s never an inappropriate time to show a picture of a gun-toting bikini model, at least on this site, and since it’s Summer this image is even more fitting. The subject of interest this time, however, is the bikini itself. The G Weekend Worrior Camo Bikini comes in three camouflage patterns: ACU (seen above), AOR1 and the ever-popular MultiCam. Each bikini also comes in a same-camo bag and is available in sizes small, medium and large. And before you ask, yes, the spelling of ‘Worrior’ is deliberate.

LA Police Gear Operator Tactical Pants Ads

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

Check out these new ads for the LA Police Gear Operator Tactical Pants (click the image for more). Whether you find them appropriate or not, it’s hard to argue against using sex to boost sales of almost any product. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have the sudden urge to buy a large quantity of pants, so hot women will attempt to steal them from me, while I’m still wearing them, in my bedroom :D.

Nike Pro Combat Core Fitted Camouflage Men’s Shirt

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

The Nike Pro Combat Core Fitted Camouflage Men’s Shirt features a digital camouflage pattern in a color described as ‘Black/Flint Grey’. The shirt is made mostly from DRI-FIT, Nike’s proprietary fabric that wicks sweat away from the body, keeping the user dry and comfortable. Also featured is the ribbed crew-neck with interior taping for comfort and flat-seam construction for minimal chafing. These seams are ergonomic and contour to the body’s shape for an enhanced range of motion.

Now’s your chance to wear the most impressive armory of weapons found throughout all of fiction. From the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch to the Klingon Bat’leth to the Nuke at the end of Dr. Strangelove, 79 fictional weapons adorn this circular design. Available in these styles: Blue/Black, Green/Forest (with a couple of replacement weapons), and a third that’s numbered to make future identification easier. True nerd cred goes to anyone who can name every weapon; I’m admittedly not recognizing a few.

Infidel Caps Latest Shirt

Saturday, May 7th, 2011

Infidel Caps has just made their newest shirt available for pre-sale. The “Bin Laden” shows the perfect cocktail mix for the recently-deceased terrorist mastermind on the back, while the term Infidel rides on the front, a view our enemies have of us which has easily become a term of endearment. The shirts are available in both black and grey, and come in sizes ranging from small to 2XL. Plus, Bin Laden’s head is a martini olive with an AK for a toothpick. How can you not like that?

You can order this shirt, and other fine infidel products, at http://infidelcaps.webs.com/apps/webstore/

iPad 2: Will It Fit In Your Pants?

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

A question I’m sure we’ve all been asking is which pair of tactical pants will fit an iPad 2. Even if you haven’t, Tactical Pants Blog took it upon themselves to answer this burning question, and the results are quite clear: if you own a pair of the discontinued Blackhawk! Warrior Wear pants, then you also have the distinct honor of owning a back pocket large enough to hold an iPad 2.

Sure, you can’t sit down, but simply pulling the iPad out before descending solves that issue. After all, if you don’t have your iPad in your hands at all times while in a state of rest, then why even own one?

However, if you missed out on the perfect iPad 2 carrier, don’t fret. Genuine Gear’s Lightweight Tactical Pants and Kitanica’s Lightweight Tactical Pants are almost as good. Of course, you could always take a third option and buy a tactical bag to put your much treasured Apple product in, but that’s just me.

Gundam Hawaiian Camo Shirt

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

This July, Japanese character apparel store Cospa will be offering Hawaiian shirts with designs featuring characters from popular anime. What really caught my interest is the Camouflage Zaku Hawaiian Moss shirt seen above, which features a Zaku suit concealed in a jungle. The shirts are 100% rayon and will cost around $91. Kinda expensive, but the fanboys will pay. Not me though; I’m a Tactical Fanboy, not a Gundam one.
