There's nothing like the smell of a long workout poorly masked by the powdery fresh scent of a baby wipe. It's like perfume on a pig. But now, thanks to the innovative efforts of Bravo Sierra and their new approach to hygiene, whether you're in the field or at the gym, you can wash away the smell without needing water.
Thousands of service members understand that when you're downrange, the only option for a shower might be baby wipes. While these do offer some relief, let's be honest: they were never meant to clean the entire body of an adult. Bravo Sierra understood that challenge and developed their own body wipes that are extra-thick, biodegradable and kill 99.9% of bacteria in 60 seconds. Best of all with their refreshing woody scent, they smell like an adult male should, not a baby's ass.
Bravo Sierra recently partnered with Task & Purpose to put on Bootcamp Burnout on December 13th at Chelsea Piers in Manhattan. Participants went through a rigorous fitness circuit to ensure they were nice and sweaty and afterwards, were given Body Wipes. The result? Let's just say they showered Bravo Sierra with praise.

A lot of changes hit the Marine Corps’ annual physical fitness test this year: a sliding point scale based on age; pull-ups for female Marines; a rowing option for those over 46; swap push-ups for pull-ups; and the chance to take the test more than once. Task & Purpose reached out to some of the devil dogs who recently took the PFT to find out how the changes are impacting their performances.
It might be tempting for some of the military’s top brass to get weighed down by all that bling on their collars, or slack off in the comfort of their plush chairs at the Pentagon. But not Marines like the 61-year-old Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who, in addition to maintaining his reputation as a PT stud, could probably kick your ass.
Some major changes are coming to the Marine Corps physical fitness and combat fitness tests, referred to as the PFT and CFT, respectively. Here’s what’s in store for all Marines come Jan. 1, 2017.
