Necessity might be the mother of invention, but does not having needs mean you don't get any of that sweet invention action for yourself? No, it doesn't, thanks to Otte Gear. From a former North Face guy, Otte's an NY-based line of hi-tech apparel originally designed for marines serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, but natty enough to rock in more proximate rubble (anywhere in Manhattan where there's a crane). The headliners are the jackets, starting w/ the Alpine: an abrasion/water/wind-resistant, multi-pocketed soft shell knitted w/ breathable durastretch and a moisture-wicking silver'd lining that keeps you "warm in winter and cool in summer" (not to mention irresistible to prospectors). Need more? Try the Patrol, a parka-length, lighter-than-Goretex hard shell shalacked with "infrared-compliant" dye, rendering it invisible to heat-sensing scopes -- like those found on night-vision goggles, Apache helicopter cams, and the crawfish-faced aliens that even now hunt you for sport. Otte'll also garb you in matching field trousers in black, grey, sand, or camouflage -- for those times when pantsless won't do, and you absolutely need Legless.
