Military Themed Gear

I used to have several military themed pieces like the famous Swiss Army knife pack and some camo "jeans" but nowadays such stuff is hard to find for takes.

So how about we use this discussion and discuss about military/special forces themed gear for public use?

Here are few types:

-Clothes (Shirts, Sweatshirts, Hoodies, sneakers, hats etc)
-Gadgets (Knives, lamps, etc)
-Appliances (Phone covers, ie iPhone, Android, BB, etc)
-Custom design places and companies/firms
-Pricing.
-Rules for having these in public as well as your personal experience.
-Gear you own/recommend.

To get this kicked off and give some examples try this:

Timepieces - Vostok Europe (Recommend Energia 2 and Ekranoplan) http://www.vostok-europe.com/collection/ , Victorinox - http://www.victorinox.com/ch/category/Category/Professional/3003?f=category&v=3/300/3003&m=add&

Accessories - Victorinox - http://www.victorinox.com/ch/category/Category/Accessories/1010?f=category&v=1/100/1010&m=add& , Magpul - http://store.magpul.com/prod_detail_list/125

Custom clothes designer - http://www.spreadshirt.com/custom-hoodies-C3212

What I'm personally interested in is some hoodie, shirt or pant/jeans designs for coming spring since I will be traveling a lot and in outdoors. But I want these to be themed with Russian Military color patterns/badges etc, MVD OMON, FSB A Urban, etc. Do you know any websites where I could get such gear? Or where I could design my own stuff (other than the website I listed above)? I did find several sites but all items are out of stock... I'm not rushing to buy these anyway (can be expensive) however it's never a bad idea to have all the best suggestions in one place for some time later or just as a collection for inspiration and demonstration.

Feel free to share your own suggestions about generally any type of military/specop (Whether it's from your country, your favorite elite team or just randomness) themed gear for public use Smile

I don't really need chem sticks nowadays (though someone else may do, good link for these) but I do have a story to share about them. I do remember once when I was out with my brother fishing on a local lake, night fell, no settlements for kilometers around us and we used a boat (he used ampulae and a hook, I don't like such type of fishing so I used my usual spinner bait from Mepps called Agila) I got a bigger pike hooked on my bait, and because the boat wasn't a motorboat but a smaller one, it shook a lot from waves, the light(a lamp) we had onboard broke down and fell into the water, all of sudden, darkness everywhere, I couldn't see where I'm standing or where is the fish or where is the shore (no full moon even or light from stars it was overcast) all I knew is that I got a crazy fish on my bait that is pulling me towards a water that is 86m deep in pitch dark, there are hooks all around us, we have limited space to move and are disoriented. I cut the line, then "snap" a green glowing chem stick, it was a pure luck my brother brought those, so we managed to pack equipment, and use 2 chemsticks (one in front and one on back) then sail until we found land, hooked the tiny boat up to some rocks then proceeded on foot, found our car after nearly a hour of walking, and headed straight home. I did notice that in light or after seeing light sources, those sticks can't light up much around you, but after some time in darkness once you light crack even one up it's a really good and reliable source of light for emergency situations. Next morning we headed back and found the boat and also some equipment we forgot. It was fun I must say, though I wouldn't repeat it Lol

Back to the topic. For anyone who feels all Macgyver and Duke Nukem check these out (They are expensive but a good buy) - http://www.ray-ban.com/usa/sunglasses?cat=12

P.S. Maxim, looks like a quality manufacturer, though there is one problem, the main website is in German and there's no English version and I don't speak German :oops:
