Sneak Peek – Huron MDX9 Medical Pack

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017

Here is a sneak peek of the New Huron MDX9 Medical Pack. Following our philosophy, Innovate or Die, we have designed the next generation in medical gear to assist first responders who are assigned as tactical medics, rescue task force members, or individual FIRE/EMS/LEOs. Our new Huron™ medical packs are designed specifically around the guidelines from the Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) and the principle that no one should bleed to death from uncontrolled hemorrhage. Current TECC guidelines recommend all first responders carry tourniquets, learn to pack wounds and utilize hemostatic dressings, and learn to seal chest wounds following the MARCHE protocols. TECC is the civilian evolution of Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC), written to address the differences in civilian populations and operational environments.

The MDX9 is designed specifically to carry multiple emergency medical items required in a Mass Casualty situation. It has ample storage space and organizational features that assist users in identifying the required items for treatment, and quickly accessing them for application.

This is just the first of many new medical products coming out of TYR Tactical in 2017.

Bravo Co Worldwide – War Rug Print Daypack

Monday, March 27th, 2017

Fewturing a paintjob inspired by Afghan war rugs, I’ve been wearing this daypack from Braco Co Worldwide to several trade shows.

KDG – Apparition Pack

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017


The market is full of concealment type bags for long guns, subguns and pistol caliber pistols, but nearly all of them fall drastically short in their capabilities. The largest flaw of all, is that most of these packs look like firearms cases! The KDG Apparition Pack takes a completely different approach. instead of subdued colors, Velcro panels and MOLLE webbing that practically screams out the contents of the bag, the KDG Apparition mirrors the colors, style and features of popular hiking bags found at your local outdoor store. Designed from the ground up to have the quick access and storage capacity for a full load out of life saving equipment and armament, the Apparition looks common enough to belong on the trail, campus, mall or subway.


The KDG Apparition Pack is loaded full of pouches, pockets and compartments so you can stow the essential gear you need to stay alive. There is organized space for all of your equipment to have its own place, so you can quickly locate it when seconds matter!

Fight and Flight Tactical – Ambidextrous Sling Pack

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

Fight and Flight Tactical is a Veteran owned small business and this is their Ambidextrous Sling Pack or A.S.P., which is an EDC bag for keeping a carbine close at hand.

The A.S.P. has three compartments, all pass-through, designed to carry an SBR, Pistol variant of a modern sporting rifle (with a folding stock), or an SMG (with a folding stock or no stock) in the main compartment, spare mags in the front compartment, and a body armor panel in the rear compartment. The sling strap can be reconfigured to work left or right handed, just by switching the bottom attachment point. Many have asked, “why a sling pack?” A two-strap backpack wouldn’t be able to deploy quickly and would have one of the straps flapping around, getting in your way. All three compartments have loop fastener inside for infinite configuration possibilities.

There are a wide variety of color combinations. Check the website for availability.
