TFB Review: A Female View On The Beretta Ladies Gear Collection

As the world has become less stable, many people have made the decision to learn how to protect themselves. First-time firearm owners number in the millions. These millions include legions of women, who through their interest in defense, have also found a love of shooting as a sport.

To combat some of these issues, the U.S. Army is designing a tactical bra for female soldiers that will be flame retardant and provide specific design features that focus on comfort and utility.

NOMAD Expanding Hunting Apparel Line

NOMAD might be somewhat of a newcomer on the hunting apparel scene but it’s a line with years of planning behind it. The guys behind NOMAD have an impressive amount of experience both within the industry and as hunters themselves, so it comes as no surprise they’d design a line of hunting clothes they simply describe as “by hunters, for hunters”. Now they’re expanding their line and I cannot help but be a bit excited about what the expansion includes: women’s styles (among other things).
