5 New Gear Releases for Fall
Fall comes fast like an enemy on attack. Before you know it, the air gets crisp and the ground is covered in auburn and orange. At the same time, the world’s most renowned tactical gear brands are releasing new autumn arrivals. We rounded up the season’s latest and greatest to put together our top 5 new fall releases.
Massif Army Combat Shirt Type II
This season, the Massif Army Combat Shirt Type II is available for purchase. Recently adopted by the U.S. Army, this combat shirt offers more camouflage coverage on the sides and chest than the previous combat shirts used by the Armed Forces. Currently it’s available in OEF-CP (MultiCam) and there is no word on when it will be updated to OCP. You must be active military to purchase this garment.
Bushnell binoculars are new to our site, and we have to admit, we’re impressed at the lineup. Its range of binoculars boasts everything from compact, affordable models to high-end styles that are the clearest and brightest on the market, all at an unbelievable value. We’d expect nothing less from the most reputable sports optics brand in the world. Beyond a tactical use, these binoculars are ideal to have on hand when hunting, camping or other fall outdoor activities.
Soffe Army PT Uniform
Right in time for fall, Soffe released the longsleeve version of our favorite PT Uniform shirt. It might set you back a little more than buying it on Post, but comfort features embedded into the fabric make it worth it. Unlike the PT Uniforms found elsewhere, these are made from a moisture-wicking Repreve micro-denier polyester. Instead of becoming heavy with the weight of sweat, it wicks moisture away from the skin. We can hardly keep these on our shelves!
Rocky RLW in Coyote Brown
These boots take a little breaking in, but once you do, the Rocky RLW is easily one of the most comfortable boots on the market. It takes design cues from Rocky’s previous best-selling boot, the C4 Trainer. Like the C4, this boot is made to feel like a tennis shoe. It differs from the C4 in that its rough-side-out cattle-hide leather and Cordura make the RLW much more durable. In fact, this style is rugged enough to be AR 670-1 compliant. Soldiers everywhere are thanking their lucky stars.
5.11 Apex Pants
We’re such a fan of these tactical pants, we’ve already devoted an entire blog post to them. There’s no doubt that this one of fall’s hottest releases. Made from 5.11’s proprietary Flex-Tac fabric, the Apex pants are flexible enough to offer natural movement without compromising durability. Plus this style packs plenty of storage— six AR-15 magazines can be stored at one time. Read our entire breakdown here.
