Presenting ‘Gear Dynamics’ from British Columbia, Canada

Gear Dynamics is a custom gear shop located in beautiful British Columbia, Canada which has been building up a growing legion of fans on their Facebook page – and its easy to see why…

This is their new “Aggressor Gun Belt“.  The Aggressor Gun Belt is designed to be a low profile, light-weight load bearing belt. Due to its HDPE core and strategic padding, the belt is rigid enough to support equipment but remains comfortable to wear for extended periods. The Aggressor Gun Belt utilizes an AustriAlpin Cobra buckle that’s offset to keep the front of the belt as flat as possible. The belt also includes two removable elastic webbing loops for strap management and overlap support.


Its available to order in GreenZone, BadLands, SandStorm and SnowDrift and costs $70 CAD.

Gear Dynamics has also produced a prototype “Micro Chest Rig” which is small in size but big in functionality.


Check out Gear Dynamics on the web  and on Facebook.

Tactical Tailor Awarded Prestigious Industry Award

Tactical Tailor is extremely proud to share that it has been awarded the Pacific Northwest Defense Coalition “Member of the Year” Award. This is a singular and distinctive event for Tactical Tailor, coming as it does from such a prestigious organization of defense and contracting companies.

“To say this is a huge honor for us would be to damn the PNDC with faint praise,” says Tactical Tailors CEO Casey Ingels. “This sort of recognition, from within a peer group of such critical companies…it’s just…it’s just a huge honor!”

Tactical-Tailor-PNDC-1The Pacific Northwest Defense Coalition is an association of defense and security industry companies that work together to foster steady economic growth for their region, to help sustain long-term profitability for its members. Perhaps most importantly it works to maintain those within the needs of the both the individual warfighter and—on a much larger, more strategic scale—on all warfighters. The PNDC membership includes companies from every level of the defense industry—they run the gamut from companies like Leatherman Tools, Benchmade Knives and FLIR to Oregon Ironworks, Raytheon and Leupold.

Ingels is a former enlisted Soldier who served in the 2/75 Ranger Regiment who used his GI Bill to earn a law degree. He has been the CEO of Tactical Tailor for several years now and Chairs the PNDC’s Advocacy Committee. The company was founded by an Army veteran, has numerous veterans in its leadership and employs many more.


The PNDC has worked tirelessly all year to mitigate the damage caused by sequestration. Its members have been a “go to” resource for journalists, scholars and legislators since sequestration first began. It has been instrumental in providing the resources necessary to understand the impact of budgets, the government shutdown, sequestration itself and defense appropriations. Meetings with national representatives have been held from Puget Sound to Capitol Hill in order to contextualize and clarify the reality of defense contracting as opposed to the so-called “military-industrial complex.”

Over the last several months the PNDC has met with Congressmen, Congresswomen and Senators from several states in order to work through the defense financial crisis.

“We’ve worked with Congressional Members to streamline the Federal procurement process,” says Ingels, “so we can increase the return on defense and security investment—for instance, looking life-cycles and long term value of products or services versus first year cost or lowest bid. We have helped with reforms that help contractors of all size, and to make it easier for government buyers to source what they need commercially, without duplication or replication…it has been a busy year.”


A few other PNDC  accomplishments include:

  • Strealining procurement regulations and reforming ITAR restrictions to more rational, common sense standards.
  • Provide local authority to defense and security officials who best know the needs of their base or agency.
  • Provision of support to companies in key industrial sectors at risk of unfair foreign competition.
  • End the practices of manufacture in US territories claiming Berry-compliant “Made in the USA” but not paying US minimum wage to workers.
  • Fund matching to K-12 districts, colleges and universities for workforce training.

If you look at the recent bipartisan budget agreement, or go back and read opposition to the sequester, much of what you see will be the direct result of information, background and context provided by the PNDC.


The PNDC Member of the Year Award is selected by its membership. Companies earning the award must earn the respect of their peers and be recognized for achievement—not just for contribution to advocacy (though that is important) but for corporate leadership, positive business practices, manufacturing practices and what Ingels calls the “care and feeding” of employees.

Tactical Tailor Releases Products in PenCott™ Camouflage

Tactical Tailor, supplier of rugged, 100% American-made tactical equipment to Warfighters around the world, is proud to announce it is offering a range of equipment in the PenCott™ family of camouflage patterns.

The effectiveness of camouflage should not gauged by popularity, nor aesthetic appeal. Camouflage is measured by its ability to mask shape and form to prevent detection. The successful use of camouflage—or its compromise—often determines mission success, mission failure and even mission completion. It is for this reason that Hyde Definition calls their patterns Mission Critical Camouflage, and this is why Tactical Tailor has added Badlands™ and GreenZone™ to its camo pattern options.

“We haven’t just looked at T&E results,” says Tactical Tailor’s GW Ayers, “We did our own research. We took it to the field and sent it overseas…the results are in. We need to offer PenCott™.”

“Tactical Tailor makes some of the most rock solid and effective gear on the planet,” says Lawrence Holsworth, Hyde Definition’s Director of Business Development. “It’s a great honor to be working with them—and a testament to the effectiveness of the PenCott™ patterns that they chose to work with us.”

Hyde Definition’s family of patterns features a unique, hybrid, 3-in1 pattern geometry that is more organic and natural looking than typical camouflages. It provides superior concealment at all ranges. Founder Dominic Hyde realized the deficiencies of many such patterns years ago and set out to design a new pattern geometry that would be more effective and adaptable than any other patterns available.

“The PenCott™ patterns are enjoying great growth internationally,” Holsworth advises, “so teaming up with Tactical Tailor will help us consolidate and build on that success in the US market as well.”

Tactical Tailor will initially be offering equipment in BadLands™ (for dry, upland, bushland, semi-arid and transitional terrain) and GreenZone™ (for verdant temperate, tropical and semi-tropical operations). There are two other patterns, with a fifth in development: SandStorm™ (for arid, desert terrain) and SnowDrift™ (for snow and winter terrain). The last pattern is called MetroPolis™ – an urban/industrial/low-light pattern scheduled for release in 2014.

“Sandstorm™ and SnowDrift™ are great patterns, no doubt,” Ayers continues, shading his eyes with a grin and looking into the distance. “and MetroPolis™ is intriguing. However, I can neither confirm nor deny we’ll be doing anything with those in the future.”

Stronghold Group introducesT.I. ZERO-PALS Chest Rig

Following the very well-received launch of their innovative T.I. (Tactical Insert) magazine pouch design, Poland’s Stronghold Group have now launched their laser-cut Tactical Insert ZERO-PALS Chest Rig.

Made from double-layered 500D or 1000D Cordura fabric, the ZERO-PALS Chest Rig features laser-cut slots rather than PALS webbing for securing pouches to the rig.  Consequently, the ZERO-PALS Chest Rig is both lightweight and durable, fully compatible with standard MOLLE pouches and fittings, and is adjustable to fit sizes Small to Extra-Large.


The ZERO-PALS rig features 14 attachment slots on the front panel and 6 on the back panel, a Velcro strip on the front for a nametape, and loops on the shoulder straps for antenna, cable and/or tube management.
