Spring Training Apparel

With spring in full swing, it’s time for a little spring training and I can’t think of a better to get into gear than with Rothco’s high-performance workout and PT Gear. Here are a few of our key items to get you ready for spring.

When I workout, I like to wear shirts that not only have an athletic fit but are lightweight and breathable. Both the Rothco PT Shirts and Women's Camo Workout Performance Tank Tops are constructed with that perfect lightweight and breathable material that will get you through each training session. In addition, tagless labels are featured on these tops as well. This is another feature I find essential as I don’t want to be distracted or uncomfortable with tags on the back of my neck.

Rothco’s Physical Training Shorts and Women's Camo Performance Leggings are great additions to your workout apparel collection. When I buy workout apparel, I look for items that are not only comfortable but are also built to last each training session and provide a wide range of motion. Both of these high-performance items can withstand those workouts and offer a wide range of motion with the elastic polyester/spandex material. On top of that, these items can wick away moisture to help you stay cool and dry.

History Of The Waist Pack

Whether you know it as a fanny pack, a bum bag or a belly bag, the waist pack has been around for quiet sometime. In fact, it dates as far back as 3400 - 3100 BCE, in which it was a part of the attire of Otzi bka "The Iceman" which was discovered in 1991. Another origin of the waist pack is that owed to the Native American's who would make a waist pack instead of sewing pockets in their clothes. Further east in Ireland, the waist pack was very popular due to a lack of pockets in Kilts. 

For centuries the waist pack has been utilized across the globe and Rothco has taken it to the next level with our  Tactical Concealed Carry Waist Pack. The pack has 5 optimal pockets for storage along with a concealed carry compartment for a small to medium size handgun. 

Check out the pictures of out our Tactical Concealed Carry Waist Pack below and watch the video for detailed breakdown of the fanny pack here.

The Passing of Rothco Founder Milton Somberg

It is with great sadness that Rothco announces beloved founder Milton Somberg, has passed away at the age of 95. Milton is remembered by family, employees, and customers as a kind-hearted, brilliant man who created not only a company but a legacy, one which continues to flourish in the spirit of the Rothco brand today. We mourn the passing of a great man whose spirit and enthusiasm for business and for Rothco will forever be missed. Besides being a pioneer in our industry, Milton was devoted to his wonderful family. He is predeceased in life by his beloved wife Marilyn, his son Marc and survived by his sons Howard and Neil, 6 grandchildren, and 13 great-grandchildren.

In 1953 in a small loft on Great Jones Street in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, Milton Somberg began Rothco, then known as Morris Rothenberg & Sons. Dealing with used clothing and World War II army surplus, the business grew, settling in a larger warehouse on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn. When used military goods became scarce, Rothco became manufacturers, eventually becoming the country's largest supplier of military clothing and gear to the commercial market. Over the next 65 years, Rothco grew under Milton’s guidance. 

Rothco is what it is today because of the foundation he built. His insights into business and personal relationships are the DNA of the Rothco brand.

We mourn the loss of a great leader, a man of integrity and a true gentleman.
