[Featured Brand] Eyewear: WileyX

Choosing protective eyewear is an investment, and as a brand, WileyX offers very high quality and value. They also offer many different styles to accommodate different needs and head sizes. So I have added the full line of WileyX tactical eyewear to our store. You can choose from goggles, which exceed military specifications for ballistic impact protection, and are NVG compatible, to the classic Saber style, which provides high velocity impact safety (ANSI Z87.1-2003 standards) for a very affordable price.

But that's not the coolest thing about WileyX...what is cool about WileyX is seeing them on one of my favorite sci-fi shows - Stargate Universe. Yes indeed, WileyX eyewear was featured prominently in the second episode, where several character traveled to a desert planet. It only made sense that they would be wearing WileyX to protect them from the harsh climate. I'm pretty sure that Scott and Greer were wearing the XL-1 Advanced climate-control specs (with a removable facial cavity seal), and Eli was either wearing the Romer II or Blink sunglasses.

XL-1 Advanced:

WileyX Romer II, or Blink?

...the more I look at them, the more I'm thinking Blink.

[Featured Product] Uniforms: TRU Combat Shirt

This item is so popular that it's hard to keep in stock. At first, only a few of the colors were available, but now we've got all the colors for the TRU Combat Shirt listed in the store.

I might just get one in each color for myself, because these shirts are so comfortable and wearable in so many different environments. The Cordura base layer fabric is soft and breathable, which makes it great for layering underneath a vest, while you still have the sleeve features of a conventional uniform. If you wear a vest all the time, you could easily swap out your old uniform shirt for this one. Or, it looks good on its own, for a more modern look.

Are you ready for Wasteland?

Here is a really quick summary - The "cliff notes" version - of the uniform requirements for each faction. We're only two weeks out now, so if you need anything for the event, better contact us pronto!

Brotherhood of Steel Uniform - MultiCam, armor is encouraged! Ok, I know a full metal suit of armor might be hard to come by, but I encourage you to be creative with spray paint or duck tape.

Talon Company Uniform - Black. May we suggest: TRU Top and bottom, or Combat Shirt.

Wastelanders, Raiders, Slavers Uniform - punk, mixed civilian, and paramilitary. Please no matching uniform top/bottom - punk it out! May we suggest: mixing different tops and bottoms, camo T-shirts, covers, shemaghs.

You might also want to be creative with your weapons and accessories. Think, "Mad Max."

Enclave Uniform - MARPAT top and bottom.

DON'T FORGET FACE PROTECTION OR EYEWEAR! A full-seal goggle or face mask is required for this event. Check out our full line of Revision, WileyX, and Save Phace products.

Also, don't forget to bring one or more of the following for your starter weapons: boffer weapons, gas pistols, springer shotguns, pistols and rifles. May we suggest: rubber training knives for those close-quarters melee kills.

Players may physically enter the field with advanced weapons or AEGs, but must keep them slung until an upgrade is purchased from a merchant or "built" by a gunsmith. The "currency" in Wasteland is bottle caps, which you get by finding and selling pre-war artifacts.

To encourage players dressing the part, players showing up in excellent costumes will be awarded a starting bottle cap bonus before the game begins.

Other useful items to bring:

A large empty pouch or backpack to carry collected artifacts.
Food and water (it's a 24-hour game).
Comfortable footwear.
Bedroll/camping gear to bivouac for the night.
First-aid/med kit.

Be sure to download the players pack for more info -

[Featured Product] Eyewear: Revision Sawfly

Still recovering from our recent travels and everything else that's going on, but I've been meaning get back to blogging about our stuff!

I am becoming of the belief that you can't have too many pairs of protective glasses, especially when you do the sorts of activities that we do all the time. So I tried out yet another cool pair of specs from Revision - The Sawfly.
They might look like just another pair of shooters, but they are much much more. It's a military eyewear system, with interchangeable lenses, and the ability to withstand a shotgun blast at 16 feet.
They come in two sizes - regular, which is the typical size - and large, so if you have trouble finding a good pair of specs to fit, this might be your answer. The arms also adjust to fit. And, they are Rx compatible. The set comes with two lenses, strap, bag, case, and cleaning cloth.

I wore this around at DragonCon, and as with other Revision products I've tested, the sawfly's are super-comfortable. We have them, and many other fine products in stock, so please stop by our site if you haven't in a while. (I also fixed a bunch of stuff, and even lowered some prices;-)
Also pictured here - riot shield from Dark Victory Armory - surprisingly light-weight shield designed for milsim/tacsim. For more info, contact
