What’s New For Winter 2016 / 2017

Prometheus Design Werx Wilderness Utility Top 

The PDW Wilderness Utility Top will be Available for Pre-Order Beginning on December 2nd.

Prometheus Design Werx

This signature design for PDW is in a class by itself. If the spirits of Jeremiah Johnson, John Muir, and Hugh Glass inhabit your own, this design is crafted for those who are most at home in the forests, mountains, and wilderness. A fine blend between a tried and trued heritage wool melton and a modern, function first utility design, the Wilderness Utility Top is a style that will be lived in and relied on year after year. Cut in a shirt-jac silhouette, it is a relaxed fit and designed to be worn like a light jacket over a light mid-layer such as our JAAC Hoodie. Or size down if to be worn mostly with a base-layer like your favorite waffle thermal.img_5732

The heart of this utility top is a hearty mid-weight 14 oz wool melton with a touch of nylon added for even more durability. Wool has been the goto outdoor material for generations. It is naturally insulating even when wet, quiet, and no melt-no drip. The overall cut and single side arm panels allows a great range and freedom of movement uncommon in wool style outdoor shirts. Ample, well placed pockets for storing any number of outdoor accessories, personal effects and survival to camp items. 4 of the pockets have zippers for extra security, 2 additional chest pockets act as hand warmers, and are placed as to clear pack waist straps, utility to first-line belts.  Double reinforced elbows, generous collar stands up to block wind, and the no-loss slotted para-smock style PDW buttons round out the Wilderness Utility Top. This is a PDW shirt that you can likely pass down to your grandkids. Available in charcoal gray heather, and classic olive drab green. Cut and sewn here in California, USA.
