Be Summer Ready with Rothco

With summer officially starting yesterday, it's time to make sure you are prepared for the new season. Below is a checklist of the essential items we believe will help you get through summer.

Headwear - It is very important to protect yourself from the harmful UV rays from the sun. Whether your fishing, hiking, out in the field or just in your own backyard, having proper headwear will protect your face, eyes, and head from sun damage.


Shorts - Keep yourself cool in Rothco's large selection of shorts. Choose from a wide variety, including Camo cargo shorts, Vintage Fatigue Shorts and the Lightweight Tactical BDU Shorts, which are great for hot summer days as they feature breathable 100% cotton material will help wick moisture away and keep you dry all day long.

T-Shirts - In addition to shorts, Rothco also has a massive collection of t-shirts, including various camouflage patterns as well as moisture wicking and quick dry t-shirts, which are designed for extreme weather conditions, are great for under uniforms and will keep you cool in any heated situations.

Sunglasses - Did you know Rothco has over a dozen kinds of sunglasses? Aviators, sports glasses, and even tactical sunglasses are just a few of the many types we carry. Keep a pair with you during the summer to protect your eyes from the sun, sand and other debris.

Insect Repellent - Bug bites are no fun during the summer time. Take the necessary measures to protect yourself from them and the harmful diseases they can carry. Bug sprays, clothing treatments, and even mosquito netting are just a few ways you can keep bugs at bay this summer.


Looking for more summer gear? Rothco.com has all the summer essentials you need to beat the heat.

Rothco's Got Game at Cousin's Paintball

Every year, Cousin's Paintball in Calverton, NY, holds their annual Big Game. It is their largest and longest-running game of paintball, where hundreds of players come together for one "big" game using every field at their facility. I had the pleasure of taking part in Big Game this year along with some close friends, all of whom were sporting some Rothco gear!

With my paintball mask and gun in hand, I laced up the V-Max Lightweight Tactical Boots, ideal for the rugged terrain, and headed out to the field. The boots were comfortable and light, providing easy movement through the fields and woods. I also had on the Rothco Military FR NYCO Combat Shirt, which held up nicely in the hot and humid weather. It was breathable and comfortable to wear while running around the field. It provided protection from the sun and also from the paint! To add further protection, I used the Padded Fingerless Tactical Gloves for my hands. The fingerless gloves allowed me to access the trigger of the paintball gun with ease while protecting my hands from the paintballs.

While playing the game, I noticed quite a few people wearing the same combat shirt as myself, Rothco BDU Pants and more!

Check out some cool photos below of the gear from Cousin's Big Game!

Are You Ready For The New Hurricane Season?


June 1st marks the beginning of hurricane season. Will you be prepared for the next big storm? With heavy rain and winds that can exceed 100 miles per hour, hurricanes are one of nature’s most destructive events. In 2017 there were 6 major hurricanes (a category 3 or higher) which left hundreds of thousands of people without homes, power, water, and food. It's important to have emergency survival items on hand if you live in an area that is frequent with hurricanes, in case you are faced with an emergency situation. We've compiled a suggested list of items that can be essential to survival during one of these major storms.

Emergency Lighting and Solar Power - Power lines can easily go out due to the strong winds from a hurricane. Stray debris can also knock out power and damage the lines, which means you could be without electricity for a few days or even a few weeks. Rothco has brand new solar power banks and lights that would be beneficial to keep on hand during a storm. Not only are they rechargeable, but the solar power banks can provide power to your other electronic devices.

Emergency Food/Water - Natural disasters can cause a shortage in the food supply, especially if the power is knocked out. Food will start to go bad and eventually run out. Keep some non-refrigerated, ready-to-eat food around as backups in case the power goes out and your appliances are no longer working. Rothco has a number of Meals Ready To Eat (MREs), pocket stoves and emergency water purifiers that could be kept in a bug out bag for easy access.


First Aid and Survival Kits - Hurricanes can wreak havoc, causing various injuries due to flying debris, flooding, etc. It’s very important to have a fully stocked first aid kit on hand, for any emergency. Rothco also offers pre-made survival kits, which are filled with essential items for survival situations, like a utility knife, paracord, a poncho and more. Having these two kits already prepared will make it easier to get up and go during a hurricane.


Shelter and Protection From The Elements - Hurricanes destroy homes easily with incredibly strong winds and through flooding. Make sure you have some type of shelter prepared in case you need to evacuate your home or neighborhood. Finding or creating shelter is important in any survival situation because the elements can do more harm to you than not having food or water (check out the Survival Rule of 3 Infograph for more information). Tarps are easily foldable, will not take up much room in your go bag, and can be made into a tent quickly. Survival blankets can also offer insulated shelter as a last resort, keeping you warm and dry during the rain from a hurricane.
