Slumberjack Becomes SJK Tactical Hunting Gear, Sets Sights On The Hunting Market With New Product Offering For 2014

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Partnering with camouflage supplier Kryptek®, SJK Tactical Hunting Gear introduces a complete line of hunt-specific packs and tree stand cloaks

BOULDER, COLO. (For Immediate Release) – After 57 years designing and developing outdoor gear for outdoor enthusiasts, Slumberjack is evolving, changing names, and setting its sights on the tactical hunting market. Launching for 2014, the new SJK Tactical Hunting Gear brand will offer a complete line of Kryptek® camouflage packs and tree stand bags designed specifically to give hunters a tactical edge on any hunt.

SJK Tactical Hunting Gear’s new for fall 2014 line appeals to an emerging market of tactical hunters, introducing cutting edge features and functionality into every product. Lightweight materials, durable construction, cutting edge Kryptek® camouflage, and an extensive amount of input from our professional hunting guide partners at Outback Outdoors, combine to create some of the most advanced equipment available.

“The hunting community is rapidly evolving, moving towards a more tactical approach to their outdoor experience, and we are leaders in this trend, addressing the needs of the emerging market with cutting edge equipment,” said Russell Rowell, Vice President of SJK Tactical Hunting Gear. “Our shift from Slumberjack to SJK Tactical Hunting meets the needs of the new tactical hunting customer with products that feature materials and technology designed specifically for the modern hunter.”

The SJK Tactical Hunting line includes five new tactical packs, ranging in size from the essentials-only Flush 750 waist pack up to the fully-featured Bounty 4500. The Bounty is a 74-liter pack featuring an expandable/detachable load-carry system that allows a game bag or other gear to be carried close to the body for better load support, a detachable day pack with organizational pockets for quick trips away from camp, and a built-in rifle shooting platform to help stabilize the shot. Remove the entire pack bag and use the frame separately to create a highly versatile carry platform for larger loads.

Designed to offer protection from the elements and the freedom to stay mobile on the hunt or around camp, the SJK Thermal Cloak tree stand bag provides all-day warmth and comfort for cold, wet, stoic hours on the hunt. Tactical hood features keep your peripheral vision and hearing sharp so you can see and hear approaching game. Quiet, weather-ready fabrics repel wind, rain, and snow while 160g of synthetic insulation helps keep you warm all day. The foot of the bag is long enough to cover boots yet open, allowing you to feel the edges of your tree stand to ensure proper footing. Large, self-sealing (via magnets) arm ports allow you to silently move into bow or rifle shooting position.

ADS Inc Wins USAF Non-FR Combat Shirt Contract

Monday, April 7th, 2014

Last week, the Department of the Air Force awarded ADS Inc a contract for $1,908,872.41 to deliver non-FR Combat Shirts under the Defensor Fortis-Load Carrying System 2 program. Intended for use by AF Security Forces, these Combat Shirts differ from the Airman Battle Shirt by being manufactured from lightweight, non-FR materials yet like the ABS, incorporate a mock turtleneck and also sport the Digital Tigerstripe Pattern worn by all stateside Airmen. These are going to be worn by SF on gate duty when they wear body armor such as IBA or equivalent to increase comfort and are not intended to be worn in a deployed environment.

Here is a full description:

All fabric shall be lightweight, breathable, moisture wicking and odor resistant; long sleeve “over the head” style with a semi-tight fit that eliminates bunching or riding up under armor; right & left sleeves shall contain: Air Force Digital Tiger Stripe Camouflage Print, hook and loop cuff closures, anti-abrasion padded elbow patches, two-channel flapped pen pocket on both forearms secured by hook & loop fastener tape, zippered shoulder pockets with 6-1/4 inch opening for all sizes (opening toward front of arm); right shoulder pocket must accommodate hook & loop name tape and rank insignia; fastener tape dimensions: loop fastener for name tape shall be 1 inch wide x 5-1/2 inches long, loop fastener for the rank patch shall be 2 inches wide x 2 inches long; torso & mock turtle neck shall be AF Sage Green 1641 (match color in Tiger Stripe Green) or Army Foliage Green 504; modesty panel covering chest area. These will be available in X-Small through XXX-Large.

There is still no award on the load carriage portion of the solicitation.

UPDATE – I’ve added a photo of the sleeve of the prototype shirt that I have. It doesn’t have a sleeve pocket or Velcro.
