While not exactly ‘tactical’, this product definitely has cross-over appeal… The new ‘Wilderness Utility Top’ from Prometheus Design Werx features high-quality heritage materials, proven modern performance design, and Made-in-USA quality workmanship.
Cut in a style reminiscent of traditional rugged outdoors ‘jac-shirts’, the PDW Wilderness Utility Top puts a thoroughly modern and updated twist on this garment category, and creates a whole new class for itself. Channeling the spirits of Jeremiah Johnson, John Muir, and Hugh Glass, the PDW ‘WUT’ is crafted for those who feel truly at home in the forests, mountains, and wilderness. The WUT uses a fine blend tried and tested heritage wool Melton and a modern, function-first utilitarian design to create a style that will be lived in and relied on year after year.
Cut in an updated jac-shirt / shirt-jac silhouette, the WUT features a relaxed fit that’s designed to be worn like a jacket over a light mid-layer. Alternatively, buy a size smaller and wear it with just a base-layer as a stand-alone outer garment or ‘mountain man shirt’. The cut also allows a great range and freedom of movement uncommon in heavy-weight outdoor shirts.
The PDW Wilderness Utility top is one of PDW’s Made-in-USA CORE-Line products, and at its heart is a hearty mid-weight 14 oz wool melton with a touch of nylon added for even more durability. Wool has been the ‘go-to’ outdoor material for generations – it is naturally insulating even when wet, quiet, and is naturally no-melt-no-drip for protection against burns.
Ample, well-placed pockets allow for storage of outdoor gear, personal effects, and survival or camping accessories – four of the pockets have zippers for extra security. Two additional chest pockets act as hand warmers, and are placed so that they are clear of pack waist straps, and utility or first-line belts. Double reinforced elbows, a generous stand-and-fall collar to block wind, and slotted para-smock style buttons, of PDW’s own design, round out the features of the garment.
Cut and sewn in California, USA, the PDW Wilderness Utility Top is available in charcoal gray heather, and classic olive drab green.
