Modern Pentathlon is not your average Olympic sport. You have to be ready for anything; more specifically épée fencing, pistol shooting, 200 meter freestyle swimming, show jumping on horseback and 3 km cross country running. The modern pentathlon simulates the experience of a 19th century cavalry soldier behind enemy lines: He/she must ride an unfamiliar horse, fight with pistol and sword, swim, and run.
Continuing the SLAMXHYPE Olympic Fits on-going feature, we offer a uniform ready to take on all obstacles. First up is the the U.S.N.V. / C-Vest from NEIGHBORHOOD’s archives collection. NBHD uses vintage styling in the creation of this naval themed tactical vest featuring rugged functionality throughout. Underneath, you’ll need something breathable, fitting and functional. Commonwealth’s Gardener button-shirt has all of those features with a short-sleeve hand tailored cotton fit, reinforced pockets, reinforced bartacking, side panels with utility pockets and tool loops and more. Cargo pants are needed and the NEIGHBORHOOD Para . Hunt / C-St fits all with its woodland toned hunter’s camouflage, suspender fastening buttons, waist adjusters, coin pocket, reinforced seat, cargo pockets and leg opening drawstrings. The newest edition to Nike’s ever expanding stable of running styles are the absolutely unmissable Kukini Free. Meaning “swift and respected” runner in Hawaiin, the Kukini embrace the best of the lightweight and pure running technologies that Nike has to offer, all in an eye-catching tango orange.
