Too Cool for School – 30% off at Grey Ghost Gear

GreyGhostGear_header2013There are 3 words to evoke dread in most children and young adults - back to school.  There is little you can do to mitigate this feeling of doom – promise the young ones a good recess; promise the older ones a wet t-shirt contest on the beach during Spring Break, perhaps guarantee them a job other than fast food service upon graduation…

But you can get them a good pack to carry their books though.  A bag that says, “I am higher on the food chain than the dorks you stuff into lockers, no need to steal my lunch money. I’m neither hipster nor hippie.  I know good gear when I see it and I deploy to the school yard with the same level of gear that my daddy (or mommy) deployed to Dirkka-Dirkkastan with.”


In other words, cheer up the dejected and miserable students in your life with a Grey Ghost Gear Lightweight Assault Pack in ATACS FG, PenCott-BadLands or GreenZone; a Stealth Operator Pack in grey, grey diamond or ATACS FG. A Legacy Pack in Coyote Brown, MultiCam or one of 3 Kryptek patterns – Highlander, Mandrake or Typhon.  

Once all those packs, patterns and colors are gone they’re gone!  Miss your chance now and you’ll be mourning the missed opportunity for generations to come.

Buy one, buy three.  But buy now, before it’s too late!

UF PRO : Introducing RAL 7013 – the original all-terrain color

In use for more than a century, the RAL 7013 Brown-Grey colour has proven to be one of the most versatile colors for a wide range of operational end-uses.  Whether being used for military, police or civilian end-use, the Brown-Grey colour blends into a broad specter of surroundings and compliments a wide range of other plain colours and camouflage patterns.


Under the traditional “RAL 7013″ color code, Brown-Grey gear is becoming more and more popular within Special Forces, because of its efficiency in arid, urban and woodland environments.  It provides a very subtle appearance and allows the operator to nicely blend in, at day and at night.

More on the roll-out of Scorpion W2 (OCP) camo ACUs

By Army Public Affairs, WASHINGTON (Army News Service, July 31, 2014)

The Army has confirmed what Soldiers have been hearing rumors of for months now – a new camouflage pattern for combat uniforms is on the way with a number of improvements.

Beginning in the fall of 2015, the Army will begin issuing to new Soldiers an Army Combat Uniform that bears the Operational Camouflage Pattern. That same uniform will also become available in military clothing sales stores in the summer of 2015.

Soldiers are expected to retire their current uniform and begin wearing the new pattern by the summer of 2018.

The uniform bearing the new pattern will be largely the same as what Soldiers wear now, except that the lower leg pockets will be closed by a button instead of the “hook and loop” fabric fastener on the current Army Combat Uniform, or ACU. Soldiers complained that fastener made too much noise in combat environments, officials said. The insert pockets for knee pads and elbow pads will also be removed from the new uniform, according to Program Executive Office Soldier.
