Over the years I mostly wore Bluejeans when working outside or warm weather hunting. This year seemed extra hot. I thought back to one of the hottest, steamiest places I ever was and turned out to be Vietnam. Thought about the fatigues I was issued and survived the heat well. Good old ripstop cotton jungle fatigues, liked the fit and look. Guess I would be labeled a kook if I was to show up anywhere in that garb. Went to Bass Pro and found some ripstop in convertible to shorts and seems to be a good cut to fit me, I did manage to find OD with cargo pockets, LOL. I also found some gray ones with a secret pocket that holds the Kel Tec PF9 very good. They are a lot cooler than denim and I can go places and still be presentable. I also found sites that sell the vintage fatigues and it is surely tempting! They are the solid OD, not the Tiger striped at least. And the Boonie hat tops them off real well....LOL. Now Im cooler again instead of cooking in this miserable heat.
