We have been very new to the Rothco product line, but they have been around a very long time and have a very good presence on social media and are very good at marketing their product. We jumped onboard early in 2017 with the product line and found that it has filled a niche. There are always different levels of durability and quality, but some people want to buy what they can afford. When it comes to Rothco Jackets, they have a lot of Military, Tactical and CCW options. We’ve search around the web for IDPA vests, and Rothco has them, and have been trying to fill the void on a lot of other outerwear. Online you can always find plenty of options, but with clothing, you never know how it is going to fit you and how heavy it is. Most men we deal with have no idea about product materials, but they know what they like when they feel it.
Most people have moved away from the idea of needing a Han Solo winter jacket, and Soft Shell Jackets are very common. There are huge differences in fit between Condor Soft Shells, Tru-Spec Softshells and 5.11 Tactical Softshells. You might see 40% differences in prices and if you don’t think you need to spend that much, then don’t. I think Rothco could afford to put better zippers on some of their products but we have been extremely happy with our customer responses for Rothco Jackets, they buy them because they can afford them. There are several Vintage Military Styles, M-65 and Bomber Jackets and Flight Jackets.
