Help out three old farts fulfil their dream

You can help by checking out their Kick Start Campaign

Outdoor Sports Apparel Team has been in been in the outdoor industry for over thirty years and have been asked by many buyers, friends and people we meet, why isn’t anyone manufacturing apparel for people who carry concealed weapons? In 2013 our team started researching material and different styles of shirts that people wear every day.

The team came up with the idea for active wear. We wanted to use a time less style that men and women could both appreciate. So we took the box style shirt and designed the best way for someone to access their weapon when needed. We also wanted to design the shirts with the mindset that not everyone wants just a plain colored shirt. So we came up with several outdoor wildlife graphics that will available once we meet our pledge goal.

Please join us on this journey, and help us create The Ultimate Style in everyday apparel and Concealment

Men or Women who are looking for a fashionable way to look great and feel protected while carrying a concealed weapon or can be worn by anyone who just wants to look good.

The Box Style Shirt comes with two chest pockets and in four different colors and styles to choose from:

1. Solid Color Shirt (No Graphics)

2. Solid Color Shirt with Graphics (Four Different Graphics To Choose From)

3. Solid Color Concealment Shirt (No Graphics)

4. Solid Color Concealment Shirt with Graphics (Four To Choose From)

One of the World’s Most Sustainable Resources

Environmental Benefits of Bamboo

-Cleans the Air. Bamboo gives us clean air to breathe, consumes carbon dioxide and, because bamboo forests are so dense, returns 30% more oxygen to the atmosphere than trees. Some bamboo sequester up to 12 tons of carbon dioxide from the air per hectare.

-Requires less energy, water to grow. It takes much less energy to grow and sustain bamboo than other similar trees and plants used for fiber production. Bamboo plantations require very little maintenance. Bamboo also requires very little water and can survive drought conditions as well as flooding.

-Reclaims land. Because of its rapid growth and root structure, bamboo can, in a very short time, reclaim land destroyed by overgrazing and over-building and clean the soil of toxins.

-Can be grown without pesticides. Bamboo can be grown without pesticides or chemicals because of it’s own anti-bacterial agent.

-Can be harvested sustainably. Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on the planet, making it a high yield renewable resource. It can be selectively harvested annually and is capable of complete regeneration without need to replant.

-100% biodegradable. Unlike synthetic fibers which incorporate petroleum additives, bamboo clothing is safe for municipal disposal programs, whether by landfill or incineration.

Bamboo fiber is made by pulping the grass until it separates into thin threads of fiber, which can be spun for weaving into cloth. Bamboo fiber resembles cotton in its un-spun form, a puffball of light, airy fibers.

Benefits and Features of Bamboo fiber clothing

-Naturally soft. Bamboo apparel id softer than the softest cotton, and it has a natural sheen like silk or cashmere. Bamboo drapes like silk or  satin, yet is less expensive and more durable. Bamboo/Organic cotton blends are also extremely soft but heavier in weight. 

-Allergy reduced. Bamboo’s organic and naturally smooth fiber properties are non-irritating to the skin, making it ideal for people with skin sensitivities or other allergies and dermatitis. Some people can still experience chemical sensitivities, however, depending on the manufacturing process used to produce the fiber.

-Thermal Regulating. Ensuring that you are warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Bamboo clothing’s excellent wicking properties also make it ideal for warm summer days.

-Absorbs moisture. A cross-section of bamboo fibers revels various micro-holes, allowing bamboo cloth to have superior absorption. This allows bamboo cloth to absorb and evaporate human sweat rapidly. Bamboo fiber is four times more absorbent than cotton.

-Breathable. The porous qualities of bamboo fiber account for it’s breathability; clothing made of bamboo resists clinging during hot weather or exercise.

-Anti-bacterial. Bamboo fabric contains a naturally occurring anti-microbial agent, kun, that prevents bacteria from cultivating on it, which means it helps keep you odor free.

-UV protection. Bamboo naturally provides added protection against the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Because of it’s anti-bacterial and UV resistant properties.
