ATS Tactical Gear – Low Level Clothing System

Tuesday, August 14th, 2018

ATS Tactical Gear has introduced their Low Level Clothing System which consists of a plate carrier, low visibility chest harness and shirt. What makes this unique is that they’ve never reduced the items in Grey Man colors. For example, this Clay.

The Plate Carrier is sized around ESAPI plates and sizes and the chest harness can be used as a stand-alone product or in conjunction with the plate carrier by using the included strap hangers. The shirt can be used in combination with either of the other parts of the system, and is modified to accept the low visibility chest harness to its front, whether using the plate carrier or not.

Available in Black, Light Olive, Loden, British Tan, Brown and Clay; sized Small – 2XLarge, in long or short sleeves.

ADAPTIVX Integrated Waistband System

Friday, August 10th, 2018

I stopped by Dynamis Alliance the other day and they were going over some marketing materials for their ADAPTIVX line. Right now, it consists of jeans, but the core of the brand is the IWS (Integrated Waistband System).

Granted, I had seen it in the past, but I was focused primarily on its use for concealed carry of a firearm. But then I started to look at the different inserts they had available and consider other uses. It’s then when I realized that they are redefining concealability. Consider that as long as their has been money, there have been pickpockets. The defense has long been some form of money belt. IWS will do that and more, offering options for concealed carry of a wide variety of items, whether they are valuables, electronics or weapons for self defense. I know you’ll groan, but I have to say it, “This is Adaptive.”

From jogging outdoors during a workout – to operating in environments overseas – IWS is an essential part of your ability to blend in and be prepared.

They are working on new styles and additional modules. I look forward to seeing where this goes.

Grayman & Company – First Of Its Kind Tactical Tailoring House 

Saturday, June 16th, 2018

Earlier this week, Greyman & Company formally launched. Although, this small, ‘boutique’ tailoring house has already been creating high-end, bespoke suits for close protection officers, police detectives, and civilians who conceal carry for the past year.

In movies like ‘Kingsmen’ or ‘John Wick’ there’s a handy tailor standing buy to create a custom suit for the hero. Daniel Craig destroyed 40 bespoke Tom Ford suits shooting Quantum of Solace, but real life James Bonds have no such options. That was the motivation, with a goal to address a complete market absence of a high-end tailored suit that is optimized for tactical requirements; elegance and function.

This suit is a purpose-made solution for those who have spent months experimenting with ad-hoc alterations with their neighborhood seamstress, and resigned themselves to purchasing only cheap disposable suits, which can be discarded when damaged.

Instead, these are the real deal. Grayman & Company suits are all made-to-measure by traditional methods, with a very small staff of experienced tailors in Shanghai’s French Concession. These are not mass-manufactured fast-fashion suits and the process is extensive, including a fitting with a mailed trial garment, Naturally, they are available with a number of options for mobility and protection, such as an ‘action back’ shoulder gusset, cut-resistant sleeves, and covert pockets.

Their publicly available fabric is by the Italian mill Loro Piana, part of the Louis Vuitton-Moet-Hennessy group, which produces fabrics long regarded as the most luxurious on earth. For vetted military, LEO, gov, and private security professionals, their industry program called ‘SFPROG’ allows a lower-priced Italian alternative, which also incorporates ripstop Cordura.

According to Greyman & Company, the base price for their Premium suit, made with the Loro Piana cloth is $1,300 USD. Customers who register with SFPROG will get a tiered discount on the premium and access to the lower priced fabric. From June 13th, the first 100 orders include a complementary gift set provided by industry partners.
