Jason Swazey Joins Kelty Tactical As Government Sales Manager

Sunday, February 18th, 2018

Over the past couple of years, Kelty Tactical has been introducing new products and Scott ring some wins so it’s great to see they’re bring in Jason Swazey to give Dan Eubank a hand. Jason comes on board as the Government Sales Manager, a role he is well suited for.

I’ve known Jason for over 15 years, going back to his time with Amron International. Next, he led Sandpiper of California, a pack brand found in military exchanges and elsewhere. For the past five years, he worked for ADS on the SOCOM Team, working with west coast-based SOF.

Jason tells me he’s looking to develop US made sewn goods focusing on Tents, Sleep systems, and Packs, as well as ancillary items like rescue ponchos, pack covers, and tent flies in all colors to include arctic white!

Give him a call or shoot him an email if he can help with your requirement or develop new kit for your emerging requirements/mission.

Monday, March 20th, 2017

During the recent Ft Bragg Warfighter Expo, sponsored by ADS, I found out that the USAF’s 820th Base Defense Group just fielded the newly Berry Compliant Falcon 4000 daypack. It is a hybrid top and panel loader.

Additionally, the top flap is removable and can be used as a waist or shoulder pack on its own.

In the event you separate the top flap, there is a simple, low-profile hood which can be deployed to close the top opening which features a PALS field.
