Arc’teryx Cold WX LEAF Quick Review

 

Non-ordinary Insulated Jacket. This jacket provides a better insulation than any other jacket can offer from my opinion. I owned Arc’teryx Alpha LT. It is really light and it’s good for cold weather like in California. The regular Arc’teryx Alpha LT is able to absorb cold weather from 60-50f. But it is a different story with Arc’teryx LEAF Cold WX Jacket. The jacket can absorb cold weather below 50f just fine.

 

2nd of all the jacket provides patches panel on left and right sleeve. I’m considering myself a patches collector and this is a plus point for Arc’teryx jacket to provide an insulated jacket with the patch panel on left and right of the sleeve. And one last thing why I chose this model, is because on the front of the jacket it still showing the Arc’teryx letter with the logo its own. I feel that one day that Arc’teryx will shift their idea to not having the Arc’teryx letter on the front of the jacket anymore and instead of a letter it will be replaced with its own Arc’teryx logo only. So might as well to have this model from now on or extra unit to put into a collection.

 

If you ask how warm this jacket can be? oh it is warm and can be really warm. It’s puffy, and when you wear it the jacket is ready to warm your body from the cold weather.

So I’m happy with this jacket and I’m going to use for cold weather purpose and it will be my next to go traveling jacket for cold weather destination.

I will provide more pictures below. Enjoy !!

Vans Defcon Jungle Tropic

Thanks to the people who are able to provide these great pick up from DEFCON. Vans Defcon Jungle Tropic Edition. There are actually three different models cause personally I like Tropic color. The green color from this shoes really freshen your eyes. And good thing they ran out quickly, within 15 minutes stood on the line during the release and they’re gone.

The Line

 

As you can see, the line might be not that long like you wanted to get that silly yeezy. For me that shoes is just terrible. For real I don’t like that shoes since it has a thick sole on the bottom of the shoes that made you look like ridiculous and look like a clown.

But anyway we’re not here talking about yeezy, so let’s get back to the topic. I’m surprised this year DEFCON came up with three different model of vans sk8 High Notchback Pro. and surprisingly I got the jungle one.

Overall I like the shoes itself, it’s very comfortable and just reminded me back in the day where I’m still wearing my dunk sb. I think this will be my only collection for vans.

I have two and considering to sell the other one in Jungle color, 10.5 us. As you know 10.5 us can be consider as a golden size. it’s quite difficult to find this size in my opinion.

Mystery Ranch Dragon Skiritai

Not much to say about these pack. But I love it from top lid of the pack to bottom. And don’t ask about the quality of this pack. Two thumbs up and hands down. The Foliage Green is Dragon Slayer and for the coyote Brown, that’s a Skiritai Pack. I use my dragon slayer for a short hike, and travel to a short distance miles. The skiritai is a little bit bigger. My option that time, either should I go with Skiritai or with S.A.T.L. But I guess since this is the last piece of skiritai, it might be a good idea for me to put this pack on my cabinet. When I wore this pack, the BVS support system is spectacular, and I’m surprisingly happy with it. Especially the NICE Frame that comes with this pack, that you can detach the shoulder strap or the yoke system and turn the strap a little bit bigger. So the pack itself will be able to carry more stuff in between of the yoke system and the backpack.

If you’re into with hiking, travelling and looking to get a bigger pack. I would suggest you should try with either Dragon Slayer or Komodo Dragon from Mystery Ranch. Those are the two style packs that I would suggest you to get one for a long term use.

DEFCON Vans Collection

All Camo sneakers that I’ve seen before, this is by far the best military look alike sneakers that I’ve ever seen. Since I’m a nike fan, all I can say that I’m blinded by DEFCON Group that already made these happened. Word has lost it means. And yet it’s not a perfect set if you don’t wear them with this comfortable socks. It’s made by Ziv Tac Industries, Tactical By Nature. Dead center of jakarta, and the finest quality of tactical gear that you’ll ever know. However, I just found out that a good friend of mine collected these babies too. Without any hesitation, I would like to share these DEFCON Vans Collection with you guys.

Review of Vans X Defcon MAS GREY

Which one you would choose between nike and vans? If you’re into with military and outdoor gear, don’t say that you’re a military fans if you don’t have this shoes. This is Vans Sk8-Hi Notchback Pro “S” Collaborated with DEFCON. The shoes itself represent the person who worn them as a military enthusiasm. They came in MAS GREY color which is the color that is used by London Bridge Trading for their 6094UW plate carrier. The question that come cross to my mind about this shoes, what’s good about it? Then I decided myself to get this shoes, and I would like to share my opinion with you.

Finally, the moment that I’ve been waiting for is here

Isn’t it beautiful?

First of all I’m not a big fan with VANS sneakers. And Over decades I’m always wear Nike SB. But since I followed DEFCON Group, and not too long ago I saw they released a preview of their new collaborated sneakers with VANS. And that is a VANS Sk8-Hi Notchback Pro “S” in Mas Grey color. When I heard Mas Grey, I know this group is different with other tactical groups that I’ve known. The Mas Grey color itself is the color that is been using by LBT for their Plate carrier, the 6094UW. Basically, this color is not the same with a ranger green color, cause I’ve tried to worn them with my Crye G3 pants, and it showed a small differential color between the Mas Grey shoes with Crye Pants G3 Ranger Green; however, it is still a great combination whenever you have a plain green army pants, and you combine it with this sneakers.

From the price itself, it’s not bad at all with $120 you can get this shoes. But the hardest part is to find out which store that carry VANS collaborated shoes,and especially this one. Because not all VANS store that are carrying VANS X Defcon in Mas Grey since they’re special edition and if you have a big foot like me, 10.5US you might wanna get this sneakers as soon as possible before they run out their 10.5US.

This shoes is awesome and I give two thumbs up to Defcon Group for they’re creation. And if you like military or outdoor gear but you don’t want to be exposed in front of anybody as a military person, then my suggestion is it won’t be wrong to go with this shoes. It has dark green color, not to eye catchy, and there’s a velcro on the shoes which it will allow you to attach some patches that you want to put on it. It’s a great shoes and you can’t go wrong with it. Bottom Line you’re good to go, and rock on.

 

 

 

EI Yote pack Ranger Green

IMG_20140426_193301IMG_1180IMG_1172IMG_1170IMG_1169EI Yote pack Ranger Green

So Just pick up some new gear. This time I’m down with EI Yote Ranger green color. The reason why I choose this pack, because it’s small and it’s not heavy and it fit 13″ laptop to this pack and one thing for sure, it has a feature where it can carry a helmet with this pack. But the problem, it’s very rare to get this color and this yote in brand new condition. So if you’re backpack enthuasiast, you might wanna get this pack.

Another day with barrett part 2

So last week, me and my buddies spent a half day in Corona at West Club. We did practice using his new Aimpoint and also his buddy bring two 50 cal long rifle. and one of them is Barrett .50Cal. Oh but the first sight I saw that baby, hot damn. she’s beautiful and I rock her world on the field. The recoil? as you can see from the video that I’ve posted. It was superb. the recoil and all the dust that came out, already made my day more awesome. But funny think, even I know I fall in love with this Barrett, the feeling cannot compare like I Love to the one that I care if you know what I mean. 🙂
