Maybe a little less exclusive than the Parajumpers gobi jacket and a bit less money than the comparable Canada Goose style jacket.  The Wellensteyn Rescue Jacket.  Shorter cut, hood- urban warm probably not outdoor warm.  Pockets for sneaking contraband into the theatre on that 2nd date.

Wellensteyn USA presents the quality and functionality you expect in rugged work-wear, coupled with sophistication of high-end European fashion sensibilities. The result is a tremendously versatile family of impressive outerwear jackets.

Founded more than 60 years ago in Hamburg Germany by Adolf Wuttke,  Wellensteyn originated as a producer of deep-submerge mechanical instruments designed to withstand the rigors of the North Sea.  Wuttke also realized that his customers, technicians and dockhands in the shipyards of Germany, were also in constant need of sturdy, water-resistant work-wear. He developed a heavy, seaworthy, waxed sailcloth that could be use to provide superior durability for those exposed to some of the toughest elements.


Thomas Wuttke has conceived a new generation of outstanding jackets. Design has evolved to what we call a “fusion of function and fashion”. The product’s innovative development has resulted in success throughout Europe and is now available in North America.RESCUE at Wellensteyn USA Inc. in COU, CBK, BLACK.

Slix Closer Boxer Briefs

We’re going to take a break from all of the iPad stuff, gadgets, and generally cool material to talk about something near and dear to us: our junk. When it comes to storing your goods you used to be limited to the male equivalent of granny panties, boxers, and the offspring of their union. You can stop holding the family jewels men, Slix Closer Boxer Briefs have your undercarriage covered. These drawers may be boxer briefs in name, but they fit more like a protective version of heaven, or a condom you’d have no problem wearing. They hold all the important bits in place without the deathgrip and there is no adjusting necessary. Let’s be honest, if anyone is adjusting you during the day it should be a chiropractor or a woman. They breathe, they dry quickly, and they prevent chafing – which is pretty much all you need in a pair of mandergaments. The only thing they’re missing is Amanda Gift. Oh, wait. $24

BLACKHAWK! Warrior Wear ZW7 7″ Side Zip Boot – BLACKHAWK!

Vibram sole and tall enough to just meet the min requirements for a firefighting boot(barely)I used these all summer and other than being really smelly(sorry N.), found them very comfy and convenient.  Not recommended for unit crew type fires or walking around in hot ash.  They were excellent for typical rappel fires.  The side zip lace system took a while to get just right so you could slip them on and off and still have good support.   Many sizes available and width ranges which is nice.  Only around 180 bones.  I especially like the ease of getting to the ground zipping them off, putting on my saw pants then just pulling my boots back on then zip zip, good to go.

BLACKHAWK! Warrior Wear™ Side-Zip Boots are fast, light, comfortable, easy to put on, and waterproof. This boot is a 7″ tall boot.Durable, easy-to-use molded tooth zipper openingLong-wearing, water-friendly polyurethane midsoleDri-Lex® inner lining wicks away moisture and dries quickly for maximum comfortVibram® “Multisport” oil resistant TC4+ compound outsole has large, open lugs for traversing debris and provides excellent traction on irregular surfacesWaterproof barrier and gusseted tongueWater-resistant Cordura® and high-abrasion full-grain leather upperNylon shankWashable, Anti-Microbial, Ortholite® custom molded footbed

This past fall I visited the Belstaff store in London England, and fell in love with this jacket, the Belstaff Pegaso Blouson.  Unfortunately they didn’t have black.  I’ll have to own this in my dreams, completely sold out all over the globe.  Check this jacket out in the new action Film, the Expendables.  Jason Statham, you stole my jacket!
