Raine Inc’s Kickstarter Project Ends Soon

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

You guys made it happen, the Bridger™ Kickstarter is 137% funded with 10 days left before the Kickstarter ends!


There are still a few early birds left for purchase on the Kickstarter and we added an option to purchase two Bridgers, as requested, for those that want to run them on the left and right cummerbund for full coverage.

Early Birds are $59 plus shipping and MSRP for the Bridger will be $79 after all the early birds are gone (Shipping $7 for US and $31 for international).

Link to Kickstarter.

We’ve had several requests to make a video with an overview of the Bridger™ and how it attaches to a FirstSpear® Tubes™ cummerbund.

We are currently accepting new projects (Licensing and Manufacturing opportunities) for companies interested in integrating the Bridger™ system into their vests, plate carriers, chest rigs, hunting, and outdoor product lines and new dealers interested in selling the Bridger™.

Contact us at Bridger@rainetactical.com for further info.

The Strandhögg plate carrier pictured in this post and the video is made by Firstspear, LLC and the Bridger™ products are made by Raine, Inc with Tubes™. FirstSpear®, Tubes™, 6/12™ and 6/9™ are trademarks of FirstSpear, LLC. Products shown with these trademarks are built with FirstSpear Technology™.

Bridger™ products are patent pending (US and International).

Raine Inc To Open New Manufacturing Center

Friday, March 21st, 2014

20MAR14 – What has been in the works for nearly a year is taking shape for Raine Inc. The addition of Scott Mello one year ago began the ball rolling for Raine Inc to look at a new state of the art manufacturing operation. With much deliberation, forethought, and careful consideration, Raine has decided Mayaguez, Puerto Rico will be the new home for these operations. Having previously ran Eagle Industries manufacturing operations in Mayaguez and collaborating with other companies on multiple manufacturing projects, Scott’s decision on the location came pretty easily.

Simply put, Raine has been growing considerably, and with that growth, relationships and programs are expanding simultaneously. With that advancement began a need for space and personnel capable of handling the expansion quickly, while increasing quality and production volume at the same time. The answer was simple in that the available personnel were a large factor in the decision making process. The skills of the people are what make Mayaguez a great tactical gear manufacturing area; they’ve been doing it for years. Their speed, accuracy, attention to detail, and quality put them at the top of the list in Raine Inc’s opinion. Something that we have found that is really exciting is that even though Scott hasn’t been operating there in a couple of years, the fondness and mutual respect has led many of Scott’s former staff and operators back to him. Scott is very excited to once again be part of these wonderful folk’s lives, and Raine Inc is excited to build its new relationship with them as well.

Our new facility, which is approximately 24,000 square feet, is located in the same industrial park that has housed multiple heavyweights in the tactical gear manufacturing industry before. Raine Inc has undertaken a very lengthy renovation of the facility and it is shaping up to be an outstanding place to work and make great kit. Construction is estimated to be completed in early April, and the new Raine PR will ramp up operations to start laying stitches end of April.


Raine Inc. BOK Preview

Saturday, December 14th, 2013


The BOK is a upcoming medical kit developed by Raine Inc in collaboration with members of AFSOC. It is a two-part system composed predominately of 500D Cordura nylon and 4-way stretch fabric from Duro. It mounts to a belt using standard MOLLE with tuck tabs, and large, tight elastic loops with hook tape tabs.

The aid kit portion features an “ambi-pull” which allows the user to reach down with either hand to extract the aid kit from the sleeve. The 4-way compression of the sleeve keeps the aid kit in place, along with a small amount of hook and loop internally.

The BOK will be available soon on www.raineblack.com/.
