Geraldo is just nuts. He blames Hoodies, which is a different take on the Travon-Zimmerman incident… but one that is about as stupid as it gets.
Speaking of Hoodies… the idea of the Tactical Hoodie caught the imagination of some of The Horde. I’ve been thinking about this. It’s very doable. I have some very good ideas at different levels of Tactical.
1. Low profile, looks completely normal on the outside.
2. Condition Black, looks tactical on the outside, has some reinforcing matterial on the outside that would allow quick attachment of needed accessories.
3. Fangs Out. Using technology from motorcycle jacket armor and ballistic nylon to provide max protection in a tussel and look completely badass.
Only question though is who would be willing to buy and how much would you be willing to pay? A normal good quality Carhart Hoodie is what, 60 bucks? Would you be willing to go $99.99 for a Custom Made Tactical Hoodie? I have a friend that is about to launch a Tactical Accessories Business, and he could make these Hoodies if the interest was really there for a Seriously Killer Hoodie.
I have mentioned before that I like wearing Hoodies. I have a bunch… Let’s see…
UnderArmor… I have 3. One brown, one green, and one digital camo.
Browning… 2. One green, one brush camo.
Carhart… 1. Black, oversized even by hoodie standards and super warm… one of my favorites.
2 Generic store brand hoodies in a forest camo.
1 from the Rochester Institute of Technology.
And I have 3 from Basin Sports, one black UnderArmor with a zip up, one brown, and one black again.
I think I have a couple more that I can’t think of right now… Oh, one from Ugly Stick…
None of these Hoodies have anything to do with association or support of Gangs or Trayvon Martin or anything else like that… I like to wear them because they are comfortable… not because I am occupying Wall Street or looking for Zimmerman’s head. I am at the moment of writing this, occupying my couch while wearing a Browning hoodie because it’s a cool spring morning after a night time storm and I’ve got the windows open and I am listening to the birds singing and chirping and cooing… (I have doves at Ogre Ranch… see… I’m all about Peace) If wearing a hoodie indicates my support of anything – right now you could say that it’s Browning Firearms. Under this hoodie is a Glock model 20 in 10mm with 2 spare mags on my belt. This is another bonus of wearing of a hoodie… I can conceal an M4 Carbine under here, let alone any handgun I fancy to carry.
Where are the Tactical Hoodies? With inside straps for spare mags and flashbangs? With Velcro areas for the addition of Patches? I want to put my Patches on a Hoodie… and be able to take them off again and change them. Let’s see… MHI, EOD, INFIDEL, PORK EATING CRUSADER… I got a lot of Patches here that need a Tactical Hoodie!
