Tactical Tailor and Grey Ghost Gear Win Marine Corps Family of Pouches Contract

Tactical Tailor just informed us that they have been awarded a contract by the United States Marine Corps to provide four pouches for Marine use.

Today Tactical Tailor was advised they were selected to provide modular load-bearing pouches for the AN/PVS-14, AN/PRC-153 IISR and PRC 152. They will also be providing 40mm grenade bandoliers. Additionally, Tactical Tailor collaborated closely with partner Grey Ghost Gear to obtain the contract.

The NVG pouch, technically the AN/PVS-14 Night Vision Monocular and Rhino Mount pouch, was designed by Grey Ghost Gear in conjunction with USSOCOM personnel who were actually on the ground in Afghanistan at the time.

The 40mm bandoliers are one of the most widely-recognized pieces of gear Tactical Tailor manufactures and has been provided to numerous units at the local level. Now, it will be “standard issue” to all Marine grenadiers.

Tactical Tailor CEO Casey Ingels was preparing to fly to the Middle East to consult with representatives of USSOCOM at the time of this release. However, Lindsey Lea, Grey Ghost Gear Director of Business Development and High Despotrix, was happy to discuss the contract.

“This was the first really big collaboration between Tactical Tailor and Grey Ghost Gear,” Ms. Lea advised. “We’re especially excited because this was a specific request. They didn’t come to us and ask us to build something they’d already developed specs for. They contracted us to provide those pieces of gear because it has all been tested hard in the field. This is obviously great news. From a business perspective it’s obviously a great contract to win. From a personal perspective it’s very rewarding to know we’ve had a hand in putting the most rugged, purpose-built gear available into those Marines’ hands.”

The items and their NSNs include:
AN PVS 14 NSN 8465-01-620-7014 (Grey Ghost Gear Product)
PRC 153 Pouch NSN 8465-01-620-7045 (Tactical Tailor Product)

      Many thanks, the team at Grey Ghost Gear and Tactical Tailor really rallied and demonstrated how the synergy that they share impacts the customer, the industry and hopefully the number of bad guys out there.

    Congrats. I’ve been using the minimalist plate carrier from Grey Ghost and enjoying it (it is more comfortable, in my opinion, than the USMC issued plate carrier). They seem to make good quality gear that is also very well priced.

    Congratulations to TT and G3! TT was the first “aftermarket” gear I ever purchased; and still one of my favorites.

    SSD, how about a pic and writeup on the NVG pouch? Interested in that and Grey Ghosts website has a single photo and isn’t very descriptive.

  5. Levesque says:

    I wonder if these pouches use MALICE Clips, Helium Whisper (licensed from Blue Force Gear), or standard ‘Natick Snap’ PALS fasteners as the means of attachment?

    • GW says:

      We tried to submit Malice clips. the Marine Corps preffered the strap and snap system. in typical TT fashion, the team gave the customer what they wanted.
