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 […]

As part of their 12 days of Christmas Promo, Hazard 4 is selling their new Action Agent Softshell Jacket for $150, which is $50 off the regular retail price. The Action Agent Softshell fills a niche in the tactical jacket realm because it’s a non-insulated urban-friendly outer layer designed for warmer weather.     It […]

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 […]

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 […]

Gear Diary: EDC Gamut Update and other Vertx Thoughts

Post Image

This has been a huge year for Vertx.   Before they were primarily a tactical clothing company.  With the introduction of their bag line and accessories, they’ve become a legitimate competitor to companies like Triple Aught Design and 5.11 Tactical. I’m still carrying the EDC Gamut as my daily commuter pack.  I never thought anything […]

Ares Gear Aegis Belt Review

Post Image

One of the most common equipment mistakes that new concealed carry holders make is not investing in a good belt.  Belts designed for CCW are typically made from thick leather or multiple layers of webbing in order to support the weight of a firearm.  As a rule of thumb, I like to pair leather holsters […]
