Appearances are deceiving. Often times, the toughest looking person isn't the one you need to worry about (unless they've got cauliflower ears, of course). We've found this to be true through trials, both in training as well as in close combat. The wolves, the playmakers, and the calculated risk-takers are usually the guys you wouldn't give a second thought to, but when it gets ugly, they're the ones getting the work done. Taking the most risk for the team and the ones they care about.

Little Bird, Big Ben! This is a Special Operations MH6 Little Bird, there's a bunch of other technical stuff but those are the basics. What we need to know is these crews train, fight hard and spend a lot of time in the crosshairs, literally. Grab one. You'll be the only kid on the block with one!
Kunar Valley, Afghanistan is located in the northeast corner of the country, in the foothills of some of the biggest mountains in the world. The potential for adventure (non combat type) is huge. Think of it like the Colorado Rockies, but there's one problem. It would make for an epic heliskiing destination, but war and stuff is screwing that all up. Maybe one day, but as of right now you're going to get a hate load of rockets and bullets when you go in there. All they've known up there is war, so it's going to take a significant effort to convert the Kunar Valley from a combative farming region, to a mountain destination chock full of skiing, mountain biking, hiking, kayaking and recreational weed shops, just like Colorado. Maybe one day?! Grab a tee and lets start thinking of this place, less as a war torn valley of death, and more like a vacation destination.
The vintage design we created includes an MH47 Chinook. The twin prop helicopters can carry more weight at altitude, than say a Blackhawk. Hope you dig the retro look and the extreme com fort of this t-shirt.

We started with a small bumper sticker and a lot of you have emplaced these strategically to stem the tide of the weak shit that is spreading throughout the land. We've now got morale patch options in combating the weak shit.
Day blazing the Statue of Liberty, and cruising around New York City looking hard as woodpecker lips. This is a Special Operations MH6 Little Bird, there's a bunch of other technical shit but those are the basics. What we need to know is these crews train and fight hard and spend a lot of time in the crosshairs, literally. Grab one. You'll be the only kid on the block with this kind of streetwear, no BS!

The SEAL's in Vietnam, along with other special operations units, were sometimes called, men with green faces, for obvious reasons. This project is a meshing of the style of the band Black Flag and an image of a SEAL Team operator on a live combat mission in Vietnam. Their ability to move through enemy territory, undetected, and inflict heavy casualties on the enemy elevated their reputations to a mythical level among the VC and NVA. At the end of the day, our special operations troops aren't politicians, they don't make policy, they just do the best job they can to win...which means they will survive. This will probably be the most comfortable shirt you own, and will get worn a lot more than the others you have.
Relaxing is important, especially when you're out there hunting bad guys. Rasta colors make you feel like you're on vacation. I used to listen to Reggae music all the time on deployments. It just calms us down, and for most of us... that's a good idea.

Positive Vibes and Good Luck Included At No Charge
Why Are Blackhawks a positive thing? Well, they do all kinds of things including: rescuing you, bringing food and medicine, fire support, medevac, ocean rescues, river rescues, mountaintop extracts, fastroping onto submarines, etc. Keep that Positive Mental Attitude all the time and good things will happen.
One of the most important things to remember when you're going off on your own- or even with a group- to do dicey shit. Wear it while ice climbing, heliskiing, skydiving, or doing anything else that could result in a fatality. Know how to save yourself before you even go out.
What does it mean? Well, go with your first impression when you saw the words. That's what it means. No one is coming, it is up to us. Pairs well with reality, emergency vehicles, helmets, coolers, tools, and especially dicey situations.
When you're going out on an expedition where others may not get to you in time in case of an emergency, be extra prepared and plan for the worst because it very well may be up to you to rescue yourself should things go wrong.
Support your Commandos?! We love sports teams, but there's another team that we dig the most. The Commandos out there that slay the dragons, rescue the princesses and capture the bad guys. We almost never see what they really do in the shadows, but knowing they are out there helps us sleep a little better at night. While we will always be fans of traditional sports, the ones we respect the most are these guys. Our commandos. They do insane missions and sometimes get killed in the process, but they go in any way knowing full well this might be their last day.
You don't need to be a "Commando" to wear this tee, you just need to be a fan! Grab one and enjoy the bold and lucky life that we all enjoy in this community we are all a part of!
This is our re-designed angel, originally stenciled by Banksy, snatched by me then, murdered out as an operator. It shows in one image, the feeling a lot of us combat vets have. Came out pretty good, I think. Hat designed and is professionally embroidered right here in The USA.

The commitment point when you know it's on and what happens next is an unknown. I can't really remember a time when we turned back after the 30 seconds out signal was passed around. Shuffling off the back of an aircraft ramp at 17,999' in the dark, approaching a gunfight in helicopters or rolling up on vehicles, the feeling was about the same. Seeing this hand signal has always put a little smile on my face, even when I was scared shitless.
