The Versatility of Rothco BDU's



Rothco first introduced our BDU Pants in 1981, as part of the Battle Dress Uniform that the Army instituted. Originally designed for the military, for a long lasting wear, our BDU's have expanded into a variety of different markets. Due to the comfort, durability and versatility of Rothco Tactical BDU Fatigue Pants, they can be used as tactical pants, work wear, uniform wear and even streetwear. Our Colored Camo Tactical BDU Pants have exploded into the streetwear market currently, becoming a must-have item.

The comfortability of these pants are perfect for a day at the range or combat training. Due to the durable poly/cotton twill, Rothco's BDUs were made to last. The perfect tactical pant comes equipped with adjustable waist tabs and drawstrings bottoms for a secure, customized fit. The reinforced seat and knees were also added to these pants for protection that works as long as you do. Available in dozens of colors, Rothco offers Navy and Midnight Blue, which are very popular for public safety officials and EMT uniforms. Carry all the gear you need whether its medical supplies or survival tools for EDC with 2 front slash, 2 cargo and 2 back pockets. Rothco offers dozens of colors and patterns ranging from military camos, casual colors like black and khaki, to a ton of different crazy colored camos. The versatility of these pants go way beyond the colors or patterns; as the original tactical pant, they have evolved into so many different markets, making them one of our most popular items!

Leone's List: Top 5 Rothco Items to Keep in Your Car

Military and Tactical gear is what Rothco is all about, but we know a thing or two about preparedness and survival too. You should always be prepared for whatever life throws your way whether it be a natural disaster, civil unrest, or the challenges of day to day life. That's why I've put together a short list of the Top 5 Rothco items to keep in your car - an Everyday Carry (EDC) for your car:

1. Tactical Shemagh - Now you may be thinking "ok... you've got an overgrown scarf, what's the big deal?" But the shemagh might be the MOST useful items you could have on hand. You can use it as tinder to start a fire, you can filter sediment from water with it, you can bandage a wound, create a sling or tourniquet, use it as a makeshift bag, protect your face from the elements, collect water... the list goes on and on. Even simple stuff like using it as a rag if you're checking your oil. Put one in your car. I promise you that you'll find uses for it.

2. MOLLE Tactical Trauma Kit - This really should be self-explanatory but accidents happen and not always in areas where you can quickly receive medical treatment so have an emergency first aid kit in your car just in case.

3. LED Solar/Hand-crank Lantern - I'd probably also keep a standard flashlight (find some here) in my car if I were you but something that runs on renewable energy makes more sense to me for an emergency situation. Just leave it in the sun or crank the handle and you have yourself a light source.

4. Large Paracord Knife with Fire Starter - You really kill 3 birds with 1 stone here... you get a little bit of paracord, a fire starter, and a knife. Talk about versatility.

5. Bungee Cords - Bungee Cords are great for the obvious... tying down things inside and on your vehicle but there's also plenty of creative ways to use bungee cords around the house or in an emergency situation. Plus these are camo.

Introducing Rothco's Lightweight MA-1 Flight Jacket

If you're familiar with Rothco, you've probably heard about our MA-1 Flight Jacket. The MA-1 Flight Jacket was first developed in the 1950's by the United States Air Force but is now worn all over the world as fashionable outerwear; it also happens to be our most popular jacket. We carry the MA-1 in multiple colors but we've recently introduced a brand new iteration of the jacket... our Lightweight MA-1 Flight Jacket!

We've taken our classic MA-1 but we took out the filling and adjusted the fit to make the perfect Spring/Fall bomber jacket. The Lightweight MA-1 features a soft enhanced nylon fabric and includes the same pockets as our classic MA-1 (1 utility pocket on the arm, 2 slash pockets on the front and 2 inside pockets). The other thing that remains the same is the classic orange lining; a callback to its original military roots.

This month, we're featuring the Lightweight MA-1 Jacket as our #GOTM (Gear of the Month). So stay tuned to Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat for a closer look at this new twist on an old favorite. Can't wait? Check out the breakdown we did on YouTube:
