Military Gear For Travelers

When you go out travelling around the word, what do you like to wear? If you haven’t thought about it already, you should consider military gear.

Good-quality military gear

 from a brand like Military 1st actually presents several key advantages to the savvy world traveller. The first thing you will notice about it is that when they say good quality, they are not messing around with you! This stuff is built to the highest standards possible. As a traveller, your clothes take a beating, much more so than during regular use. You need something to stand up to that punishment, and that is where military-grade clothing delivers and then some!

Aside from being robust and being able to stand up to almost anything you may throw at it, good military gear is super comfortable! If you think about it logically, it makes perfect sense. The last thing troops in the field should have to worry about are itchy or uncomfortable clothes, or clothes that limit range of motion. And comfort for them means comfort for you.


The other thing is, for all this quality and comfort, military-grade gear represents a great value for the dollars you spend on clothing. There are cheaper options out there, to be sure, but that cheapness comes with a hidden price tag. When you buy something at the cheapest possible price, you’re almost certainly buying clothing that isn’t going to last for a very long time. And when you’re travelling, you want clothes that won’t give you problems and clothes that will last. And to be perfectly honest, it’s very easy to go out to one of those needlessly marked-up fancy stores and spend tons of money to get clothes that are not much better (if better at all) than their cheaper counterparts. You will not have that problem with certified military gear.

Admittedly, you won’t (usually) be able to get away with wearing military gear to the next gala black-tie affair you may be attending, but how many times in a year do you have to worry about that? And these days, things have come a long way from decades ago when everything only came in one color. In many nightlife situations, you can not only “get away with” wearing this stuff, you can actually look good in it, no questions asked! These kinds of pants from Military 1st,

for example, can be used in a good many situations, always with your best comfort in mind.

Of course, military gear is rightly famous for being amazing against the elements as well.  If you’re the kind of traveller who likes mountains, deserts, snow, etc. you definitely should be rocking some serious military gear if you’re not doing so already. These fleeces

 from Military 1st provide a new level of non-bulky protection against cold, snow, ice, rain and wind. And there are options for hot weather

as well of course.

If you’re into camping

, you owe it to yourself to get serious with the best gear you can afford. Your camping experience is directly related to how prepared you are for it. Be prepared and bring everything you will need. And get reliable gear. Nothing worse than not being able to cook or even start a fire when camping, or having a flimsy tent die on you.

So if you haven’t considered military gear before, and you are a frequent traveller, do yourself a favor and reconsider. You may wind up very glad that you did.
