Solstice Graphene Hoodie

Graphene is perhaps the most overblown buzz word in recent years. But there’s a good reason for that: this new-age material is endlessly fascinating. In case you didn’t know, it’s made of a single layer of carbon atoms that connect hexagonally. You can read up on the science on your own, but the main thing to know is that product designers and engineers are crazy for this stuff.

First of all, it’s super strong. It’s 200 times stronger than steel, by weight. It’s light, too, and is able to conduct heat and electricity. Several companies use it for all sorts of things, from running shoes to skis to bike tires to tennis rackets. Bight Gear, meanwhile, has released the Solstice Graphene Hoody.

The Solstice itself isn’t new, though. In fact, Bight Gear fronted it as one of its flagship offerings two years ago, under the name MtnLogic. This new graphene-induced version is a lot better, though. Bight Gearused the material for a couple of reasons, chiefly odor reduction and increased heat transfer.

Durability is also improved. The predecessor featured mostly merino wool and polyester — this new version having graphene makes it a lot more robust. Don’t believe us? Take Bight Gear’s word for it. The company says each piece in its collection sees a minimum of 100,000 cumulative vertical feet of use before it gets added to the line. That includes the Solstice Graphene Hoody, of course. It’s available now, and you can find out more by hitting the link below.


Supra Footwear Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout Capsule Collection

Video game collaborations with certain brands often result in products that are on a niche of their own. What we meant to say is that often times, these items are not really that great. However, we are always hopeful that we can finally get something to proudly parade around when we go out. The Supra Footwear Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout Capsule Collection does just that..

Activision’s long-running first-person shooter franchise recently launched its latest installment—Call of Duty: Black Ops 4—that finally features a battle royale mode that’s trending like crazy right now. SUPRA Footwear joins the fun with the Blackout Capsule Collection to commemorate the shooter’s release.

The three-piece collection includes a pair of stylish limited-edition trainers, a hoodie, and a long-sleeve shirt. Each gear is adorned with liveries from the game and we’re glad that it’s done in a modest way. Both the Blackout hoodie and long-sleeve shirt have game’s title printed along the right sleeve and the emblem on the left. Meanwhile, we love that the apparel maker chose not to go overboard with its design of the Factor.

The trainers come with a multi-paneled breathable knit upper in black alongside a duo-toned paracord lace. We can also spot the game’s “The Shield and the Crown” emblem on the tongue and the insole of the shoe. The digi-camo EVA outsole adds a unique finish that completes the ensemble. We’re pretty sure that fans of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 would love to own everything in SUPRA Footwear’s Blackout Capsule Collection.
