Fidelis Co was founded of the mindset that in today’s demanding and challenging world we must demand and expect more from the tools we carry and things we use. Fidelis, born from the experiences of our founder Tim O’Neil—a United States Marine Corps Infantry Officer—took a long range view of the things we offer, design and manufacture; knowing that it is not acceptable to have a product fail in your time of need because too often the cost of failure is too great.
The Fidelis Field Notebook really caught my eye a while back when i was checking out Tim's brand. I've always been a sucker for military gear or even products i used while in the military. One of my favorite notepads to this day is the Rite in the Rain notepad. Rite in the Rain managed to come up with notepads that wouldn't go soggy or not allow you to write due to the weather conditions. Pair this notepad with the Fidelis Field Notebook and you have a perfect Pair. Fidelis' notebook features my favorite 1000D Courda fabric that can handle being tossed around, rubbed against tough terrain without it tearing or ripping. Fidelis mixes the military's olive drab with one of the symbolic colors of the United States Marine Corps. Red. Go grab one of these awesome notebooks here.

Clean cuts and sharp lines abound in the latest collection from Swedish label COS, which presently showcases its Fall/Winter 2013 range with a new lookbook. The brand went decidedly minimalist in its approach to the line, stripping blazers of ostensible buttons and labels, tailoring jackets high at the waist to create sharp contrast lines, and sticking to a relatively neutral color palette. Deep shades of maroon, navy, and grey, in addition to white, seem near ubiquitous throughout this offering from COS. Enjoy the looks from the brand’s Fall/Winter 2013 lookbook and look for a release in the months ahead.

MOLLE 3 Day Assault Pack - MOLLE (pronounced molly, as in the female name) is an
acronym for Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment. It is used to define the current generation of load-bearing equipment and rucksacks utilized by a number of NATO armed forces, especially the British Army and the United States Army. The system's modularity is derived from the use of PALS webbing as rows of heavy-duty nylon stitched onto the vest to allow for attachment of various MOLLE-compatible pouches and accessories. This method of attachment has become a
de facto standard for modular tactical gear, replacing the ALICE system used in the earliest modular vest systems. The 3 day assault packs were made to be big enough to carry sustainment gear, extra ammo, IFAKs, and all manners of tactical elements.

MA-1 bomber jacket (also known as the MA-1 flight jacket) was first developed in the mid-1950s. The MA-1 and its predecessor, the B-15 flight jacket, were needed at that time because the emergence of the jet age created new requirements for pilot performance, safety and comfort.The MA-1 was designed by the Air Force to serve as an intermediate weight flight jacket for use all year. This was accomplished by manufacturing the MA-1 from very high quality nylon fabrics and polyester interlinings. The light weight nylon design allowed the pilot in warm weather to wear the jacket open and be comfortable; upon entering the aircraft, the pilot could zip the MA-1 closed and be afforded ample protection against the cold conditions encountered in flight.
CWU-45 flight jacket is a version of the MA-1 bomber jacket that was originally designed for the U.S. military during the 1950s. The term MA-2 or CWU-45 was a trademark of the Cobles Clothing Company, adopted in the late 1980s when the CWU-45 military jacket started to gain popularity in street fashion. When contested in court, Cobles lost the exclusive right to the use of the term as they had attempted to widen it to other garments and footwear which was not acceptable because of a legal technicality. The term MA-2 has become so popular it is now used interchangeably with CWU-45 to represent this type of jacket.
M-1965 Field Jacket (also known as the M-65 Field Jacket), eponymously named after the year it was introduced, is a popular field jacket initially designed for the US military. The M-65 field jacket was widely used by United States Forces during the Vietnam War in which the jacket became useful for troops serving in the Central Highlands of South Vietnam, as well as keeping a soldier warm from the cool weather conditions that came after monsoonal rains. It was and is a standard issue to US troops in several other wars all around the globe as well.
