Daniel Defense Makes The Inc. 500|5000 List For The Third Consecutive Year

September 18th, 2014

Black Creek, GA, September 17, 2014 – Daniel Defense, engineering and manufacturing the world’s finest weapons systems, precision rail systems and accessories, has been ranked Number 1568 by Inc. magazine on its 33rd annual Inc. 500/5000.

The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Daniel Defense, a Georgia-based company and leader in the firearms community, is honored to be included again for 2014. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.

“Daniel Defense has again been recognized by Inc. 500|5000 as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States,” said Marty Daniel, President and CEO of Daniel Defense. “This is the third consecutive year we have been recognized with this prestigious distinction. I am particularly proud that we achieved this goal while installing the infrastructure for long term growth and because it is more difficult to grow at this pace as a mid-size company. Even more exciting than reaching this goal, is that now we have the infrastructure in place in our design, prototyping, manufacturing engineering, manufacturing, quality, MRP, accounting, marketing and sales. We are ready to execute our 5, 10 and 20 year growth plans.”

Atom LT Hoody from Arc’teryx LEAF

September 18th, 2014

I was walking around an REI yesterday during a visit to Phoenix, AZ and couldn’t believe how many winter jackets were on the floor and then I realized we’re halfway through September and Winter will be here soon for many SSD readers.

IMG_7385.TIF

Serendipity or not, Arc’teryx LEAF just released a video of the revised Atom LT hoody that they unveiled during January’s SHOT Show. The video gives you a great look a the features of this jacket.

I’ve owned an Atom LT for years. It’s remained my go to Insulation layer and I can wear it alone without a shell most of the time in my home area of the Tidewater of Virginia. It gets cold, wet and windy but the Atom LT keeps me very comfortable. I’ve long said that the Atom LT remains the best value for the Arc’teryx LEAF customer and if you can only afford one piece, this is the one to buy.

IMG_7387.JPG

The Atom LT consists of three main materials. The 60g Coreloft insulation that keeps you toasty, Gossamera™ fabric softshell that is both comfortable and quiet and the Polartec® Power Stretch® underarm side panels that offer stretch and breathability while on the move. These components all work together to offer a jacket that’s not only comfortable but also looks great.

IMG_7386.JPG

To sum up the updates to the Atom LT from earlier models:
-Two large hand pockets with media ports to allow for internal routing of communications cables; one internal chest pocket
-Vertically routed hem drawcord minimizes interference with duty belt

I prefer the hoody model but LEAF also offers a standard jacket version without a hood as well as the heavier SV model which incorporates 100g weight Coreloft for additional insulation.

Available in Black, Crocodile and Wolf sizes Small – XXLarge. Sizing is generous enough to layer.

It has been recently announced that more than 20,000 Australian Defence Force personnel are set to be issued with new and improved personal protective equipment.
