Naval Special Warfare Group 2 has a procurement solicitation out there for Filson Double Tin Bibbs, Filson Tin Cloth Field Jackets, and Filson forest green wool liners.
The Kitup blog of Military.com has the story here.
Checking the Filson website, the Double Tin Bibs retail for $206, the Tin Cloth Field Jacket for $295, and the liners for $120. While expensive, it is tough enough to stand up to the wear and tear of lumberjacks….or Navy SEALS.
As they say on the Filson website, “Might As Well Have the Best”. I think that can be said for both the equipment and the men in the Special Operations community.
