What could I say…..

 





From tactical to fashion – new line of crye precision multicam collection (Gregory Spear Series in Crye multicam)

6 10 2008

Have you ever felt that all those tactical gear quite heavy for normal daily use? 1000D codura is bit heavy if you load them on your shoulder no matter that’a a Eagle 3 day pack, Sigma, or even Sotech Go bag? That’s why 500D comes to my attention, from the SPEAR series of Gregory outdoor (or streetwear in fact).

All made in USA, but strangely I got the label with Japanese character printed there on. I picked the frag pocket and sling bag. Cause the helmet and the backpack were kinda ‘redunant in my colleciton’. Talking about the backpack, I saw a girl loading it up walking so cool last night. Gee, better ran ahead of her to check out her face…mc lovers? Pretty I wished 😛

The sling bag, suprisingly coming along with some black zipping ‘locker’. Quite rigid in the overall structure, a back pannel supporting the entire shape of the bag. Quite handy for walking and shopping, can insert a normal size notebook computer. Two layers of comparment in general, the first one facing the cover got some more small gadget storage compartment design. Oh top of the cover 10×2 (VxH) molle are ready for your extra mounting, such as, my frag pocket

Perfect for travelling, loading in some wallet, dc, passport of so, the frag pocket comes with an extra sling. Again with some 3×2 (VXH) molle for you to load up some smaller gadget pouche/pocket (either from Gregory or other branded molle pouches).

Crye Gen 1 Armor on ‘my field’

2 08 2008

 

room clearing

room clearing

Having a dry fire drill with my team, Cap. Alan and few of my core mates trying to practice more on room clearing moves and, surely with some pics taken for our own memorior. In fact, first time for me to gear it up on a rush load-up at night, light as blezze and its ventilation design together with combat shirt function truly reflect that’s a total knock-out of traditional armor design…can’t wondering, if Dragon skin crosses over with crye armor…

Latest Accquistion – OTTE Multicam Softshell Jacket

18 05 2008

       Having dropped quite a while for the search of multicam gear, thought the rush good fall short for sure…(except gen 2 armor and appareal…), suddenly got a call from my geat gear associate from Magpul PTS, ‘hay man, u want this….”..Freak….mc softshell….how could I miss then…

3 years ago when I got into this toxic mc magic…ve been looking for a good outdoor jacket…Dropzone? Tru Spec? ICE? So many choise my none still could my mind determined to hold one tight. A year ago my friend helpsos got one OTTE hardshell from eBay…but still feel like kina ‘sureal’ for its color not really my cup of tea (hardshell, fabric must be more densed and coated I guess, so leaving it quite of matty that drive my mind away). But this, my friends, simply irresistable!!!

This one from Otte, to me just simply quite of a beauty! Not even my friend really wanna passed it on to me huhhuh! From the first look of the color it already hold your eyes staring at it. Cutting is simply flawlessly to criticise, to the mere me I could say it might be the best one in the market which could really tackle to the harsh and demanding volitale actions you r gonna count on your outfit. Especially the diagonnal stiching on the back, which I would say it’s kinda like a singature of OTTE shofshell (according to Militarymoron there got another name as Alpine Jacket).

So my tinny little review with pics…on to go

The material, as shown in the lable, combined various kinda ‘new tech’ materials. Tweave Durastretch as the under layer. That is a coyote-coloured lining material with thin grey bands and lining, which comes here again with something called X-Static fibers.. More about that Durastretch fabric which has something called Nanosphere DWR coating from Schoeller, should be able to give some compatable water resistance function of the jacket. Though I haven’t really got it a wild wet dril but i think it should hold water up on it, pretty much I would expect it could out perform my PCU. (Gee, that would be the first of my cloth in my closet with nanotechnology…:P. Accordingly, the nano tech coating should be able to form a fine layer on the textile or fabric surface.  Further it should be more easily for cleaning as oil or those kinda staint like stuff could be easily cleaned or rinsed by water.  Further down to the tech , the fabric should be highly abrasion resistance. For specificatoin and characteristic could be found on the labels of the outfit I am gonna show u later (gee, a bunch of tags/labels are coming with this jacket…really a techno combo of modern textile and clothing engineering I guess)

I rather like to have a mc jacket not for real heavy duty action but for casul cool outfit for life indeed. That’s why I keep my hands off to many well-made brands with design and fucntion strongly focus on this area. This OTTE shoftshell just gives me what I want exactly. Its’ hood is built in, can be rolled up and stored inside the collar, quite of a high-rise one which I like most. (Tell me that’s something most of the male fashion jacket is on the hype for).  It is not with zipper but on small tips of verclo, very good to me cause fast and flexible.  You might find the hood a bit small, wearing with a cap inside or under helmet might be better. But for the big builds with possible big smart head, this might come a bit smally.

There are  2 side entrey chest pockets and 2 sleeve pockets. No complaint at all. Handy, easily accessible. zipper runs smooth and nicely.  Two velcro patches on upper sleeve pockets for you to attach whatsoever ID, patches or gadget you fans for. The elbow part should be refinorced, thicker but won’t cause u too much unecessary tension during action. The wrist cuffs are on elastic tab, again, quite of a normal and default detail for every great piece of outdoor jacket I guess. Afterall, it’s a shoftshell, waterproof function with cuffing zealing tabs is a for-sure.

So, just to show some label first, more pics coming

My new home, so to my guns

23 01 2008

Finally finally moved back to my shabby nest, after all those ups and downs , shit and sweat, and lots of money my dear, finally finally I got my place back from the sucker…

 No more rounding to the circle, here are couple of shots which my guns finally got their place to show off. Yes yes yes, those are nothing too complete for much of my stuff still unpacked, but the effect is still okay to me, at least everytime when I come back to my nest, I will still turn the light on and salute to these hybrid for quite some while.

 Again, thx for my gf, without her, my guns can’t find this lovely shinny place to have their humble existence.

 Enjoy
