The holidays season is all about honoring traditions we looked forward to all year when we were children, and hanging one’s personalized stocking over the fireplace is far from a kiddy pastime.
In fact, some could say the tradition gets even better with age.
The modern holiday man’s stocking–and its contents–are an upgrade from childhood Christmas morning windfalls, and he deserves a stocking that will hold his newfound treasures with masculine style and a wink of good cheer.
From military straps to secret pockets to bi-directional zippers, and even quick-release toe clips (all the better to spill the goodies even faster), the best tactical Christmas stockings are all about savoring the holidays like a pro. Whether you prefer nylon or knit, leather or canvas, or just good old-fashioned red fleece, your stocking is sure to make Santa grin–and maybe even add a few more treats, regardless of whether you’ve been naughty or nice.
Some things should only get better with time, and the joys of Christmas are one of them. Why should the kids get all the fun when you work twice as hard and can finally reap the gifts you’ve earned? Treat yourself or the men that make your holidays shine to a stocking that is sure to steal the spotlight on Christmas Eve.
