Arc’teryx Atom LT Hoody Review

Post Image

One of my favorite clothing purchases in 2015 was the Arc’teryx Atom LT Hoody.  It was my first Arc’teryx gear purchase and it impressed me so much that I’ve since invested in a couple of additional pieces for my wife and I.     The Atom LT features 60 g/m² of Arc’teryx’s proprietary Coreloft™ Insulation.  Coreloft is […]

First Look: Beyond Limited Edition Stitched Cap

Post Image

Beyond has released a Limited Edition Stitched Cap in Grey.     I’m a sucker for baseball caps and I despise those Flex Fit monstrosities that squeeze your dome if your hat size is on the larger end of scale.  This special edition cap is made from 100% cotton with an adjustable slip lock buckle […]

Gear Diary: TAD Legacy and High Loft Fleece Deathmatch

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I took advantage of Triple Aught Design’s virtual Dogpatch Warehouse Sale to snag a 2011 Stealth Hoodie LT for $160.  Wow, what a night and day difference between that model and the 2014 version I reviewed earlier this year. As I mentioned in that review, the 2014 version […]

Triple Aught Design Praetorian Hoodie Review

Post Image

Anyone who lives in the Great Lakes Region of the United States eventually becomes an expert on insulating layers.  With that said, last winter was the worst anyone has seen here in decades.  Living through the Polar Vortex up here taught me a hard lesson.  I didn’t have enough wool and heavy fleece in my […]

Gear Diary: It Ain’t Easy Being Green

Post Image

I purchased my first Shagmaster Hoodie a couple of weeks ago.  My initial impressions have left me wondering why I waited this long.  I’m a huge fan of Triple Aught Design’s hoodies.  I also own two Rangers, a Stealth, and I’ve been field testing a Praetorian.  The Shagmaster is warmer than any of them and […]

Alternatives to the GoRuck Tac Hat

Post Image

I’ve given up.  I’ve been waiting for GoRuck to make my beloved Tac Hat in a color other than black and they haven’t done it.  Evidently, GoRuck had a rocky road this past year stretching themselves too thin with some inventory that didn’t sell and ambitious ventures like Goruck Heavy that nearly doomed the company. […]

My Visit to Triple Aught Design’s Dogpatch HQ

Post Image

This past week I found myself in San Francisco, CA and decided to visit Triple Aught Design’s Dogpatch HQ.  Dogpatch is a historical warehouse and factory district on the city’s eastern waterfront.     It’s an area in a state of flux.  The neighborhood seems to be a haven for people who pride themselves in […]

Triple Aught Design Stealth Hoodie LT Review

As my wife would be the first to vehemently tell you, I have almost as many jackets as I have bags.  One the latest additions to my growing collection is the Triple Aught Design Stealth Hoodie LT.     According to TAD Gear, the Stealth LT is a three layer soft shell made from Swiss-made […]

Protective Combat Uniform (PCU) Overview

Post Image

I’m not big into military surplus but occasionally I come across gear purpose-built for military units that I can put to good use as a civilian.  After last year’s winter vortex debacle, I’ve been researching cold weather gear.  Depressing I know, but winter is coming and I want to be better prepared.  That’s when I […]
