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.

Tactical Tailor – RHINO RUCK

Friday, March 28th, 2014


Tactical Tailor’s RHINO RUCK was developed at the request of a SOCOM client that required an updated ALICE pack tailored to the communicator who is required to deploy across all spectrums of airborne operations.

The RHINO is a static line and MFF jumpable ruck. It is purpose built around the STRRLS, H-Harness, Harness Single Point Release, and the Parachutist Drop Bag. The RHINO features a pass through RTO zipper with optional removable PRC 117G go bag that can be worn as an assault pack or mounted directly to a plate carrier. Rigging channels are cut and sewn directly into the ruck. Additional features include external compression straps, double rain fly, and reinforced hydration and commo channels. The RHINO may be custom modified to meet end user and unit requirements.

FirstSpear Friday Focus – Noveske Discreet Backpack

Friday, March 28th, 2014

FS Noveske Discreet Pack

In this week’s FirstSpear Friday Focus we cover one of my favorite products, the Noveske Discreet Backpack. Developed in conjunction with Noveske Rifleworks, this discreet pack is camouflage for your carbine. Overall, the appearance belies the true intent of the bag.

The Noveske Discreet Backpack will accommodate an SBR, subgun or broken down rifle. It also integrates a large beavertail in the front of the pack for jackets and other items and offers daisy chain down both sides.


Additionally, they’ve ingeniously incorporated the Noveske cross design into the padding on the back.

FS Noveske Discreet Pack - Detail

The shoulder straps are padded for comfortable carry.

Padded Shoulder Straps

When you open it up, it’s got two straps to keep your gun in place.

Additionally, there’s a barrel muzzle shroud.

I’m a fan of the color combos used offered with this pack. You’ve got Black/Coyote/Ranger Green and Grey/Brown/Rust. I’ve also seen a Black/Red variant that is also mentioned in the video.

CTOMS – Pack To Armor Rapid Integration System (PARIS)

Thursday, March 27th, 2014


The CTOMS’ PARIS is a retrofit to the CTOMS 2ndLine Pack featuring the MQRB shoulder straps. It is compatible with most MOLLE armor/plate carriers and integrates with limited effect on mounted pouches and equipment. This eliminates the traditional shoulder strap configuration that can cause problems such as:

- Restriction of circulation to the arms
- Restriction of shoulder and arm range of motion
- Negative impact on shooting stance
- Negative impact on mobility, flexibility, and agility
- Negative impact on long term comfort

Ranger Med Pouch

FS Ranger Med Pouch Components

The insert is secured in place with a stretch hook closure that will remain secure through parachute, fast-rope operations etc. A hook and loop attachment point on the insert allows for indication patch or IFF. Hooks to gear via FirstSpear’s MOLLE-compatible 6/9 attachment system.

The ERK is a low profile IFAK carrier made from softshell fabric that can be mounted to your gear so that the direction of pull is either up or down. A maritime resistant plastic snap provides additional security to the activation handle and when yanked, the insert (sold separately) is pulled free from the pouch.
