The New Rothco Products I Can't Wait to Get My Hands On

Rothco is in the midst of rolling out new products that will be added to our 2015 catalog; some of these items are old favorites in new colors, others are brand new items all together. The 2015 catalog will be Rothco's largest catalog to date and with all those new products it's easy to get overwhelmed, so I've compiled a list of a few things that I am most looking forward to from the new catalog.

I've taken a strong liking to the survival market since coming to Rothco’s marketing department so anything survival related now piques my interest. Two items I plan on picking up and putting in the glove box of my Jeep are the Pry Survival Tool & the Zombie Paracord Knife. With all its uses, the pry tool will be very great to have on hand for travel and while I don’t plan on having to use the new Zombie Paracord Knife for fighting off a hoard of zombies, you never know what you’ll need a knife for and you can never have enough paracord lying around; plus the lime green accents look cool.

Anyone who saw my video on our shemagh knows that the shemagh is a great survival item and we happen to be bringing in several new patterns including a Globe & Anchor pattern, Spartan pattern, Skull pattern, and my personal favorite the Gadsden pattern. Why do I prefer the Gadsden pattern you ask? My 4th of July blog goes into the history of the Gadsden flag and, as a history-buff, I’m big on the “Don’t Tread on Me” snake as a colonial era revolutionary throwback. I don’t personally have an overwhelming amount of uses for the shemagh but for the novelty of having the “Don’t Tread on Me” style I’ll have to pick one up. We’re also introducing a “Don’t Tread on Me” cap later this month which will pair nicely with the t-shirt I already own.

Lastly, I can’t wait to pick up a new Medium Transport Pack. I already own the red medium transport pack and it is bar none my favorite item from Rothco; the narrow profile makes it great for use while biking or kayaking and there’s enough room to pack everything I need for a weekend vacation. This year we’ll be introducing a bunch of new colors and patterns so I’ll definitely be picking up a second one; I’m currently leaning towards the two-tone black & olive drab pack.

I hope you're as excited about these new products as I am. Luckily, I’ll be able to get these products as soon as they come in, for the rest of you head to our website to place an order or find an authorized dealer near you.

25 Ways To Use A Bandana

I bet everyone at one point in their life has owned a bandana – and you would be amazed at all the different ways one can utilize this classic accessory. There is a reason why we dedicate over 2 pages in our catalog and have 23 different styles of bandanas. We also have wide assortment of colors and patterns ranging from digital camo to “Don’t Tread On Me”, and even a brand new zombie themed bandana.

With all of this hoopla going on I became curious of all the fun and unique ways a bandana can be used by almost everyone and began to conjure up some ideas. Keep in mind that the list below expresses how a bandana can be used in fashionable ways, as a survival tool, and in everyday activities. I have also demonstrated some uses with my personal favorite, the pink trainmen bandana.

1) Gun Wipe Cloth
2) Mark a Trail
3) Clean Glasses and other lens 
4) Bullet Patches for Muzzle-loader
5) Pot Holder
6) Washcloth/Towel
7) Shoulder padding for Bug Out Bag
8) Fire starter 
9) To look tougher
10) Coffee filter 
11) Flag football
12) Wet face cover to escape from fire
13) Dog collar
14) Dust mask
15) Stick two ends through skydiving helmet for “bunny ears” on the jump
16) Tie long hair back
17) Small fish net
18) Hobo Pack
19) Head covering – tucked underneath a hat to protect your
neck from the sun
20) Sling - for an injured arm
21) Pack it with ice and use it as a cold pack
22) Toilet paper
23) Sweatband
24) Handkerchief
25) Concealment for a concealed carry weapon
