How Much Will Fit in an Arc’teryx Covert Case C/O? MRE Shows Us

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

About 9 months ago, SSD showed you the first images of a new family of travel luggage from Arc’teryx. Now, they are available for sale and the folks at Mission Ready Equipment decided to do an experiment with the carry on compatible Covert Case (that’s what the C/O stands for). They wanted to see how much they could fit in the bag. Considering the bag measures only 20″ x 12″ x 9″, it’s a lot.

They were also kind enough to share a trick with us. They added SOB Combat Bands to the zipper pulls. Not so sure about traveling on a plane with the .45 in the outer pocket though. Guess it depends on who you are. But for standard car travel that might be just the ticket.


The Covert Case C/O is available in Carbon Copy or Utility Green from

Mission Ready Equipment Acquires Grey Group Training

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

It’s finally official. We just received word from Mission Ready Equipment announcing their purchase of Grey Group Training. Both are fantastic companies and I think they are going to compliment one another very well. Congratulations!

Mission Ready Equipment is pleased to announce the acquisition of Grey Group Training.
Mission Ready Equipment recognizes the strength of Grey Group Training’s brand and sales model by committing to the company’s growth.

“Grey Group Training customers will be able to choose great products and training from an expanded assortment of manufacturers and will have more depth of product on the shelves for both the ecommerce store and the retail store,” says Mission Ready Equipment President Jeff Smith.

Grey Group Training’s mission and identity will not change as they seek to grow their retail and training operations by adding new storefronts and expanding their roster of trainers as Mission Ready Equipment’s retail sales and training partner.

“Growing from one location to two locations is not twice as hard; it is ten times as hard,” says Smith, “We are excited to be able to bring our experience in growing other retail brands to Grey Group.”

The move continues Mission Ready Equipment’s growth in the tactical marketplace while allowing it to focus on its core mission as a premier wholesale, online and direct sales supplier to military, federal, state and local government agencies.

In addition to retail, the acquisition adds Grey Group Training’s experience in firearms, combatives and combat medicine education to the current capabilities at Mission Ready Equipment.

Smith says “Eric Page will take over as Grey Group’s Vice President to manage the operation as they align with Mission Ready Equipment’s growth objectives. Eric has been a part of Grey Group from the beginning and is a key figure in it’s future”. Smith added “Grey Group’s own Josh Burmeister worked with us through the acquisition process and contributed to a smooth ownership transition. Josh will be leaving to pursue other projects.”

“The Grey Group staff can’t express how excited we are about becoming part of the Mission Ready family. With their help in logistics and support Grey Group can get to what we do best, giving the best service and products to our Brothers and Sisters in harms way,” says Grey Group Training Vice President Eric Page.

The acquisition closed February 14, 2013.

Mission Ready Equipment was formed in 2010 by a group of dedicated individuals with more than 28 years experience in equipping & instructing individuals and teams, whether Armed Forces, Law Enforcement, Private Security or Fire and Rescue, in layered clothing systems, footwear, packs, tents, sleeping systems, and climbing/high altitude mountaineering equipment.

Mission Ready Equipment Did Not Merge With Anyone

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

We recently ran a story announcing that Protect The Force had merged with Mission Ready Services. Unfortunately, our headline referred to Mission Ready Services as just “Mission Ready”. The body of the article was very clear about the issue but some readers got concerned that Mission Ready Equipment had been in on the merger. Nothing could be further from the truth. MRE is still owned by the same folks and they are still kicking ass bringing you great gear.

Now that we have gotten that out of the way I want to say thank you guys for reading, at least reading the headlines. However, the devil is in the details and the details are in those groups of words below the headlines, so dive into the details. I try to be as concise as possible because I know your time is valuable. Thanks!
