Offgrid Gear New: First Tactical Watches – Fathom and Ridgeline
Tech advancements come fast, and the iRay RS75âs mere existence...
First Tactical produces just about everything you'd need for a complete EDC loadout — apparel, boots backpacks, knives, flashlights, hats and gloves. The company has continued to branch out for 2017, expanding its collection of watches from one model to three.
The initial watch, known as the Canyon Digital Compass, was released in late 2016. The Canyon includes a digital time display and second hand, as well as day, date, and compass functions. Its large rubberized bezel and polymer band are designed for tough outdoor use. Color choices include black, coyote, and OD green; MSRP is $140.
The Fathom Stainless Dive Watch is an all-new analog model in the line of First Tactical watches. This watch is waterproof to 200 meters, and uses a stainless steel housing, stainless bezel, and screw-down crown.
Super-luminova glow-in-the-dark hands and markings improve nighttime visibility. It's available in either polished Titanium finish or black; MSRP is $250.
The Ridgeline Carbon Field Watch resembles a modernized version of the vintage field watches issued by many military organizations in the past. It's constructed from ultra-light carbon resin PA material, with a medium-sized face and large markings.
The durable laser-cut nylon webbing band also keeps weight at a minimum, and luminous hands maintain low-light visibility. The First Tactical Ridgeline is available in black with OD green band or brushed stainless with black band. MSRP is $190.
