Making BDUs lighter and cooler

I found this particular article on the Combat Reform team's website: "Making BDUs lighter and cooler." Now I've always been a big fan of the BDU uniform. I think it's functional, rugged, and good. I know it has its detractors, but what uniform system doesn't? A good article nonetheless.

Mil-Spec Monkey

One of my favorite websites on the net is Mil-Spec Monkey. I believe the guy shares my love of practical tactical stuff. You can never have enough tactical stuff, whether you are a civilian, in law enforcement, or in the military. Highly recommend the site!

I got my shirt!!!

I admit that I'm a sucker for good marketing ploys, and getting an Adidas Kellogg Tucan Sam sports t-shirt by sending in a few tokens, was a sure winner in my book. Of course being a lazy ass I could not justify buying and eating eight boxes of delicious breakfast cereal and then waiting six weeks to get my t-shirt. Instead, I bought one box, cut out the token and sent in a check for $8.99 dollars instead. It arrived today, four weeks later!

Fila at Kohl's

Looking through Sunday's newspaper advertisements, I saw that Kohl's will start to sell Fila sportswear. Now Fila was born in Italy but was snapped up by South Korean investors in January 2007, making it South Korea's largest sportswear company. I think this is a good thing, since I really need another excuse to go to the mall.
