A Christmas Tradition – The OC Tactical Christmas Stocking is Here!

The vast majority of tactical Christmas stockings are uninspired jokes. Gear makers just sew a stocking from 1000D nylon and then add all manor of garish pouches, zippers, webbing, over wrought handles, d-rings, and loop material. They’re fun but forgettable in a sea of similar stockings.

OC Tactical’s Christmas Stocking is just the opposite. These stockings are truly unique and have become something of a tradition around my house. They create a limited run of rare or historically important camo stockings every year. They are a great collectors piece for camo nerds. These stockings are finely made with original fabrics or meticulous reproduction fabric, lined with LITELOK fabric, and feature a small loop field for adding patches.

Past stockings have featured original Vietnam era Tiger Stripe material in 2015, special reproduction Rhodesian camo in 2016, original ERDL camo material from 1978 for the 2017 stocking, and now a batch of what may be the rarest fabric yet… The 2018 stocking will feature Universal AOR!

From OC Tactical:

This year’s run of custom Christmas Stocking is truly unique.  I made these with some of rarest camo fabric on the planet.  This is the camo some have called the Universal AOR pattern from the Navy’s camo testing.  I was lucky enough to get my hands on bunch of the test patterns awhile back including a small amount of this.  The only other example of this fabric I know of was photos posted by legitkit years ago of a uniform top made by Beyond Clothing. This is a one time deal, once they are gone I will not make these again.

This is a stocking that you do not want to miss.

OC Tactical Restocks Rhodesian Camo Stockings

OC Tactical makes a limited run of rare or historically important camo stockings every year. They are a great collectors piece for camo nerds. These stockings are finely made with original fabrics or meticulous reproduction fabric, lined with LITELOK fabric, and a loop field for adding patches. They are not adorned with useless PALS webbing, zippered pockets, D-rings are anything like that because the camo is the focus.

They made a Rhodesian Camo stocking for 2016 from a special run of reproduction material that was very scarce. That stocking sold quickly but the have been able to build a few more which are now available to purchase in time for Christmas. Visit the OC Tactical website to purchase: OC Tactical

I should also note that you will not want to miss this year’s stocking which will be unveiled VERY soon. The camo is very cool and very rare.

Multicam Quilts Update: New Camo Patterns, Prototypes, and Custom Options

There is a lot of news coming out of Multicam Quilts lately including two new Multicam patterns, an interesting prototype, and the availability of custom options.

Multicam Quilts were previously only offered in the original Multicam pattern. Now they are offering two new patterns on a limited basis. They already have 50/50 NYCO Multicam Tropic material in hand and are taking orders. This limited pattern will likely sell out quickly. Pre-orders are also already open for Multicam Black quilts which will be made once the material is available.

Typically, Multicam Quilts are backed with plush Polartec 200 fleece. However, they are experimenting with an interesting new option for the backing – Coyote Brown Polartec Thermal Pro FR. This fire resistant material is only in use on a prototype for now but it could become available if there is enough interest.

Finally, if you are following the development of these quilts on AR15.com or social media, you have likely seen the custom options that people have been requesting like the paracord loops shown above. This is one of perks from buying a handmade item from a small business. They are able to accommodate customization requests.

If you want to learn more about Multicam Quilts, check out our earlier post: Countyline Quilt Company Multicam Quilts

Countyline Quilt Company Multicam Quilts

What happens when you combine ripstop 57/43 NYCO Extreme Multicam material, Polartec 200 fleece, and intricate machine quilting techniques? Well, you end up with something that is quite beautiful, functional, and really cool.

Countyline Quilt Company started offering their Multicam quilts on internet gun forums. The idea blew up from there and now they have launched dedicated social media sites just for their Multicam Quilts. Who wouldn’t want an heirloom quality quilt in an iconic camo pattern?

They use ripstop 57/43 NYCO Extreme material for the top layer. This material is not as well known as the 50/50 NYCO used in many uniforms but it is much softer while still offering excellent durability. Countyline Quilt Company then bonds warm Polartec 200 fleece to the back of the quilt with a beautiful pattern of stitches. The edges are then bound to prevent fraying.

These are made in the USA from USA made materials. They are about 65″ X 84″ (custom sizes may be available by request).
