Limited Edition Recon Set

This set includes our popular Recon Patch AND a limited edition Leather “Praetorian” patch. Roughly 1 inch in diameter with rounded corners, these were originally sent out as a thank you to particular friends of Pack Config that had show significant support for myself and this blog. Only 30 were initially sent out and now I am releasing 20 for regular sale.

*Also included within the cost of this pack is a currently unreleased (slight) colour variant of the Recon Patch that is not yet available to the general public. Your name (if given at purchase) will also be placed permanently on our about page as being a member of our Supporter Unit.

Please note: Due to the nature of the production of these patches (and their small size), the placement of the stamp within the square is variable and a few of the stamps sit close to the edge of the patch. The finished colour of the leather and level of dark ink within the stamped design is also variable.

Praetorian Patch

This patch depicts the Pack Config face within a Praetorian helmet. The Praetorian Guard were originally recruited from among the best available veteran Legionaries. Service in the guard was considered an honoured position for a soldier. It symbolises an ‘honouring’ for support shown.

Recon Patch

Reconnaissance, in it’s simplest form, is about exploring an unknown territory to gain information. This Recon patch represents our willingness to explore and report back on our findings. For many this takes the form of photographs that remind us of our own experiences and inspire others to discover for themselves. For others it serves as a reminder of the boldness it takes to travel to unknown and dangerous places.

Using vintage Navy Photographic Reconnaissance Squad patches as inspiration, the elements have been designed to allow the user to interpret for themselves. The aperture opening of a camera with a compass dial, or the barrel of a gun surrounded by crosshair markings? Whatever they mean for you, the focus is on the great outdoors.
