Velocity Systems and Mayflower have leaked a photo or two of their current and future products in the Kryptek family of patterns which are currently finalists in the US Army’s Camouflage Improvement Effort. They had planned on debuting everything at SHOT Show and following the normal flow of things. Take orders at SHOT and then release product based on those orders in mid-spring. But now, we don’t have to wait. Velocity Systems FNG David Walsh related to SSD, “We planned to launch the sale of our existing product line (in Kryptek) at the upcoming SHOT show. DS Tactical was ready to invest immediately and who are we to argue?”
What happened to speed things up is that Canada’s DS Tactical has already placed an order that includes Mayflower LPAAC’s, APC’s, several pouches and each of the Chest rig styles in the Kryptek Highlander, Mandrake and Typhon patterns. “Working direct with end users, we believe that Kryptek offers the best range of use in every environment. Velocity/Mayflower was the easy choice when it came to providing innovative products because of their high quality and knowledge of end user needs,“ said DS Tactical’s Colin Noppers.
This stocking order means that these patterns of all Plate Carriers and Chest Rigs from Velocity and Mayflower will be available later this month. Nomad will be available in March. While pricing isn’t completely settled, they should remain in line with those of existing printed products from Velocity and Mayflower. In addition to the current line, both brands will be introducing new products at next week’s SHOT Show.
