This item is shown in the 2019 Spyderco Reveal Vol. 3. It is not however listed in the 2020 Product Catalog. Just wondering if it will be offered at all. The sweatshirts look very cool and I will buy at least two if they are made available. :D

Talking of Spyderco branded clothes, it would be cool to see Spydie CQI applied to clothing in addition to just branding ordinary clothing.

For example, extra knife or utility pockets with reinforced stitching.

How about a small zipped hidden pocket for a backup small knife like a Manbug or Dragonfly?

I think we can all relate to having favourite items of clothing worn out around areas where knives are pocket clipped.

I've had the hoodie pre ordered for quite a while, my tee shirt just showed up the other day from KnifeCenter.

It's already posted on a couple of the dealer sites. I was ordering a couple of the new t-shirts the other day and tried to order one of the sweatshirts when I noticed it said coming soon

I own a loft full of industrial sewing machines, and I habitually modify my pockets to reinforce them against clip damage. I tend to wrap 1" flat webbing around the edge of my pockets, and then put in slots for the clip so that the 'spoon' sits back down inside my pocket as well. Works great for both knives and flash lights.

I also frequently put elastic loops inside my cargo pockets, but that's for my other gear.

Those mods sound very cool, Tom. I wish I had the skills and tools to do that.

Another cool mod would be to have a reinforced horizontal slit next to your pocket so the whole knife can be dropped down into it, with just the clip riding outside your clothing.

I also like the idea of a stitched seam inside your pocket to hold flashlights or clipless knives upright.

Hi All,

Sorry, I lied. Talked with Eric this evening and the hoodies didn't clear QC. Back to the drawing board.

Does anyone even wear full zip hoodies? Bummer it's not a regular hoodie without a zipper.

Personally, I prefer full zip hoodies but I'd be buying a Spyderco hoodie either way! :D
