GORUCK Kit Bag

GORUCK Kit Bag

GORUCK, known to craft military-grade goods made right here in the states, has released their latest offering inspired by the aviator’s kit bag, the military-issued bag that accompanies all paratroopers on airborne operation. The GORUCK Kit bag is designed with highly water-resistent materials and feature a small internal pocket for easy access to anything compact such as your phone or keys. The external open pocket on the end of the bag allows for easy organization of newspapers, books and mobile devices. This bag is essentially about keeping things very seamless while utilizing top-quality materials and innovative design. The military-spec MOLLE webbing system on the outside allows the new Kit bags to be fitted with field pockets or other accessories, similarly to how soldiers customize their field equipment.

GORUCK delivers the Kit bag in two sizes to fit your specific needs. The smaller—57 liter—CIVVY Kit Bag is a great all-purpose bag that’s perfect for everything from a trip to the gym or a weekend getaway, while the larger—84 liter—MIL Kit Bag is ideal for longer excursions or deployments that require more packing space. The CIVVY Kit Bag comes in both black and sand colors, while the MIL Kit Bag is available in black, sand and multi-cam.

Brooks Brothers Military Heritage Archives

Brooks Brothers has had a relationship with the Armed Forces dating to 1818, when they opened their doors to the veterans of the War of 1812. It’s amazing how some of the same styles that were available two centuries ago are still prevalent today. To this day, officers in the United States Navy are still able to get uniforms made by Brooks Brothers and we’re sure they’re a sight to see.

MIHARAYASUHIRO S1091298 Military Coat

Mihara Yasuhiro drops this military style coat for the spring and summer seasons with a relatively lightweight shell that’s comfortable but can protect against the elements when duty calls. It features a zip down front closure but has excess fabric draped over to hide it, adding some much-welcomed versatility. The hood’s adjustable as is the waist via interior elastic cords.

First Look: Alpha Industries Fall/Winter 2010 Preview

Alpha Industries Fall/Winter 2010 Preview

Alpha Industries is known for their military-inspired gear, but what many aren’t aware of is the detail and authenticity of these products. The US Dept. of Defense recruited Alpha to revamp its military jacket and the rest is history. The jet age took flight shortly after which required the company to develop products that kept up with the needs of our soldiers and they didn’t disappoint. As better fabrics were developed and tested, Alpha made better jackets for the troops – better designed, better produced, and more reliable. Alpha garments were ranked as warmer, more comfortable, more durable and designed to meet any climatic challenge. Since the mid-1960s, Alpha has continuously manufactured the M-65 Field Jacket, and they’ve produced virtually every MA-1 Flight Jacket used by US Air Force, Army and Navy pilots.

With such a rock-solid reputation, the highlight of Alpha Industries’ Fall/Winter 2010 collection is unarguably the outerwear lineup. Plenty of heavy-duty shells are being offered, including a Gore-Tex parka in a camouflage finish. The kids’ collection caught our attention as well with a flight jacket and peacoat, both of which make us wish we were really young all over again.
