Cholombia Combat Shirt (various options)
2017-2018 Honduras, Central America. President Juan Orlando Hernandez becomes another Latin American dictator backed by the United States when he illegally changed the Constitution of Honduras to allow himself to run for another term. Only it didn’t go over that easy, hundreds of thousands of people revolted with burning, looting, stealing, and disrupting all forms of transportation throughout the country.
Why? Because the US government wants to control, that’s right control (not eliminate) the drug trade via “the war on drugs”. They put who they want to put in power as the Narco bosses and they extradite everyone who doesn’t play by their rules to the U.S. Continuing the massive ongoing snowball effect of our for-profit prison system. How do I know all this? Because I was right there in the middle of it.
Amidst the rioting, looting, and shooting marero’s. The protesting general populace. Dodging roving patrols of Honduran military, CIA, DEA, and various American military personnel from Soto Cano Air Base (the only official US Military base in Central America at the time) who have the entire country under martial law with instructions to shoot first and ask questions later… There’s me. And about this time, I started wearing uniform shirts made by a friend of mine who, like many Hondurans, works his butt off from sun up till sundown just to put food on the table. It was illegal to be on the streets, illegal to carry a firearm, and illegal to wear camo… So, living dangerously as I was, this time of my life is what inspired me to design and produce the Bone Tactical Cholombia shirt. I wanted a shirt that was cool and represented my American patriotism so I chose Multicam®. It’s also the baddest camo print out there and lets people know right away you mean business. I chose to add some small hints of Hawaiian print because I also wanted to let people know I’m not in the military, I’m a one man A-team, and I’m ready to party.
It’s called the Cholombia shirt because they are individually hand made in Choloma, Honduras (one of the most dangerous places on earth). Honduran men are known around the world for their excellent sewing and clothes-making abilities. In fact, many top designer’s produce their clothing in Honduras. What’s sad is that they don’t allow their clothes to be sold in country at all, they even shred and burn the factory defect items instead of giving them to the poor and needy, then they reap huge profits while paying their employees barely enough to survive. But, buying from Bone Tactical allows you to help make the world a better place by supporting the small business owner, the impoverished, and the destitute (we are constantly using proceeds for our various outreach programs: https://youtu.be/VqMd3w_1RIg ). Because that’s what we're all about. We stand up for what is right, even if it is not popular or profitable.
Cholombia shirts are available in standard men’s sizes Small through 2XL and consist of genuine Multicam® with a touch of Hawaiian print highlights to add a bit of style. The fabric is a breathable, uncalendared, high-quality DWR in genuine Multicam® print. Originally designed for the US military, Multicam® is a patented camouflage technology proven to outperform other camo prints across a wide-range of environments. Like all genuine Multicam® fabrics, this material is second to none in abrasion resistance, water repellency, and overall quality. The shirt itself is vented in the rear with internal netting to increase breathability and moisture wicking even further. The plethora of Velcro pockets make small item storage a breeze and like the rest of the shirt, are made with extreme attention to detail. If you want a shirt no one else has, of the highest quality, that supports the right things and is just as suited to performing rigorous outdoor activities as it is for a casual night on the town… Then this is the shirt for you. All sales are final.
