Thursday, July 27th, 2017

McRae Terassault® T1 Hot Weather Performance Combat Boot

Quantico Tactical is proud to announce the availability of McRae Terassault® T1 Hot Weather Performance Combat Boots via our GSA Schedule, DLA TLS contract, in our stores and via our website.

McRae Industries introduced the Terassault® T1 in early 2016. The T1 is made in USA, Berry amendment and AR670-1 compliant. The T1 is the company’s first entry into high performance boots developed and made in the USA. T1’s progressive design is an evolution of the lessons learned from over 50 years of military boot manufacturing. The Terassault® T1 bottom platform has been developed to provide utmost traction and stability in almost any environment and improved shock attenuation over traditional mil-spec boots.

The McRae Terassault T1 Hot Weather Performance Combat Boot is the boot to fit your needs.

• McRae Terassault® T1 Hot Weather Performance Combat Boot (Coyote)
• 8” height
• Genuine cowhide suede and 1000 denier nylon upper.
• Breathable lining reduces risk of fungus and helps eliminate odor.
• Uniquely designed upper with forefoot seams facing back to reduce snagging and hanging in rough terrain/environments.
• Padded collar with tendon relief dip in back.
• Stitched toe and heel tabs to minimize risk of bottom separation. These are the areas of a boot most prone to begin to separate in hard wear.
• Cushion orthotic footbed — can be removed and washed.
• Sizes available: 5-12, 13 R&W

In hot, humid conditions much like what we are currently experiencing can be hell on soldiers’ feet. McRae industries, only 20 miles from Ft. Bragg, NC understands this fully. This ultra light, yet durable boot has functional flex points in front and back that allow articulation of the upper for greater Freedom of ankle movement.

The Terassault T-1 has been tested to great success by multiple military organizations. Many long-time adherents to other brands have described the Terassault as the most comfortable boot they have worn. Users have described the break-in of the boot as the shortest among boot brands they have tried.

McRae Footwear received its first United States Department of Defense contract for combat boots in 1967 and has steadily provided footwear to our military forces since that time. Over the years, McRae Footwear has proudly manufactured millions of pairs of combat boots for the United States Military that meet the specifications they have required.

McRae Footwear is committed to manufacturing high quality footwear for the United States Armed Forces for many years to come.

Warrior East 2017 – Footwear Preview From Salewa

Monday, July 17th, 2017

Over the past several years, Salewa footwear has become the choice of military, LE, and other tactical users. The Trooper (coming 2018) is the first dedicated tactical boot in their line.

The Trooper is an all Black model, based on the next generation of the Mountain Trainer Mid. However, Salewa has removed all of the metal, and the hooks you see on this prototype will be loops on the production model. Additionally, the Trooper is leather lined.

There will also be an updated version of the Mountain Trainer Leather. Like the Trooper, it will be leather lined.

It will incorporate a new outsole from Vibram.

Finally, Salewa is updating the Wildfire Vent with a wider toe box and forefoot and a new sole system from POMOCA, a name which you may recognize for their climbing skins. The outsole features a sticky rubber.

All three of these Salewa models will be landing in 2018.

Tecnica Launches New Footwear In The US And Tactical Users Should Take Note

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

Custom fitting has been available for ski boots for years. Now, Tecnica is bringing their Thermoform system to hiking boots built with an anatomic last Custom Adaptive Shape. Just like it sounds, the boot is heated to make the C.A.S. Components pliable and then the boots are custom molded to the wearer’s feet.

You’re now getting a first look at this new technology.


The first Tecnica product line for the outdoor market is called FORGE. Tecnica guides the development of FORGE and other, future products with three pillars:

A new and unique design approach that combines style with versatility. Our goal is to always ffer the best performing footwear in each category with an extremely versatile and visual appeal. Footwear that progressive outdoor enthusiasts will want to wear beyond their intended use.

A revolutionary 360° t concept that offers great out-of-the box fit with Tecnica’s proprietary C.A.S. Technology, a complete, real time, in store customization solution. “The first shoe shaped for you.”

All Tecnica footwear will do more. A progressive mindset will be used on the design of all our shoes to create products which can be used in a variety of activities, terrain and conditions.

C.A.S. consists of a footbed and upper. The footbed works in concert with the upper’ arch. The upper also features a customizable heal cup and ankle pads.


Additionally, Tecnica abandoned traditional tongue designs to introduce an innovative overlap collar.


Kevlar loops take the place of metal hardware to form the self locking lace design that doesn’t creep while moving.


Finally, the FORGE line features a triple density EVA midsole and Vibram Megagrip outsole.


Offered in Men’s and Women’s versions, there are two styles. Both are lined with Gore-tex, but one has a Nubuck leather face (FORGE) while the other is a high tenacity face fabric (FORGE S).





As you can see, in a edition to a custom fit, Tecnica also offers colors useful for tactical applications.

Due to the technical requirement of properly fitting and customizing the boots, they will initially, only be available at select brick and mortar retailers.

The FORGE line will be available starting February 2018.
