Tactical Tailor – RHINO RUCK

Friday, March 28th, 2014


Tactical Tailor’s RHINO RUCK was developed at the request of a SOCOM client that required an updated ALICE pack tailored to the communicator who is required to deploy across all spectrums of airborne operations.

The RHINO is a static line and MFF jumpable ruck. It is purpose built around the STRRLS, H-Harness, Harness Single Point Release, and the Parachutist Drop Bag. The RHINO features a pass through RTO zipper with optional removable PRC 117G go bag that can be worn as an assault pack or mounted directly to a plate carrier. Rigging channels are cut and sewn directly into the ruck. Additional features include external compression straps, double rain fly, and reinforced hydration and commo channels. The RHINO may be custom modified to meet end user and unit requirements.

Tactical Tailor Advises American Industrial Might Is Not Dead

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014


Citizens of this great nation have been bombarded with news that United States manufacturing is atrophied, if not on an outright spiraling decline. Though this may in fact be true in certain part of the country in specific industries, it is certainly not the case everywhere – and most definitely not the case in the Seattle area!

Pat attention Detroit! Tactical Tailor and the Pacific Northwest Defense Coalition (PNDC) are at the spearhead of a nascent renascence in American industrial manufacturing might.

In order to keep up with military contract requirements and citizen demand, we have vastly increased production times, with commensurate supplementation of quality control and supervisory measures. Tactical Tailor’s factory and assembly areas are now running 6 days per week—12 hours per day during the week and 8 hours on Saturdays.

The factory was previously running just 0630L to 1430L Monday through Friday.

Tactical Tailor, which recently earned the prestigious PNDC Member of the Year Award, will continue to run lean and build mean. We will maintain the same Kaizen and Kaban/JIT Lean Manufacturing Techniques and Advanced Quality Planning Control Processes, known colloquially as Control Plans, First Article Inspection and Process Capability. We will continue to keep the lessons of Clausewitz, Sun Tzu and Maurice Sendak in mind and most of all we shall remember, regardless of our ops tempo, that American Warfighters’ lives may depend on the quality of our work once they step outside the wire.

For you knuckle-draggers, that means everything still gets fit tested with a mag, radio or dummy grenade and thoroughly QCed before it goes out the door. Rest assured if you’re Joe Snuffy, rifleman, last man on the left flank and the last one to be issued something, your gear will always do what it’s designed to do with bomb proof Tactical Tailor quality that is guaranteed for life. Savvy?

Tactical Tailor Awarded PNDC Member Of The Year Award

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014


Tactical Tailor is extremely proud to share that it has been awarded the Pacific Northwest Defense Coalition Member of the Year Award. This is a singular and distinctive event for Tactical Tailor, coming as it does from such a prestigious organization of defense and contracting companies.

“To say this is a huge honor for us would be to damn the PNDC with faint praise,” says Tactical Tailors CEO Casey Ingels. “This sort of recognition, from within a peer group of such critical companies…it’s just…it’s just a huge honor!”


The Pacific Northwest Defense Coalition is an association of defense and security industry companies that work together to foster steady economic growth for their region, to help sustain long-term profitability for its members. Perhaps most importantly it works to maintain those within the needs of the both the individual warfighter and—on a much larger, more strategic scale—on all warfighters. The PNDC membership includes companies from every level of the defense industry—they run the gamut from companies like Leatherman Tools, Benchmade Knives and FLIR to Oregon Ironworks, Raytheon and Leupold.

Ingels is a former enlisted Soldier who served in the 2/75 Ranger Regiment who used his GI Bill to earn a law degree. He has been the CEO of Tactical Tailor for several years now and Chairs the PNDC’s Advocacy Committee. The company was founded by an Army veteran, has numerous veterans in its leadership and employs many more.

The PNDC has worked tirelessly all year to mitigate the damage caused by sequestration. Its members have been a “go to” resource for journalists, scholars and legislators since sequestration first began. It has been instrumental in providing the resources necessary to understand the impact of budgets, the government shutdown, sequestration itself and defense appropriations. Meetings with national representatives have been held from Puget Sound to Capitol Hill in order to contextualize and clarify the reality of defense contracting as opposed to the so-called “military-industrial complex.”


Over the last several months the PNDC has met with Congressmen, Congresswomen and Senators from several states in order to work through the defense financial crisis.

“We’ve worked with Congressional Members to streamline the Federal procurement process,” says Ingels, “so we can increase the return on defense and security investment—for instance, looking life-cycles and long term value of products or services versus first year cost or lowest bid. We have helped with reforms that help contractors of all size, and to make it easier for government buyers to source what they need commercially, without duplication or replication…it has been a busy year.”

A few other PNDC accomplishments include:

·Strealining procurement regulations and reforming ITAR restrictions to more rational, common sense standards.

·Provide local authority to defense and security officials who best know the needs of their base or agency.

·Provision of support to companies in key industrial sectors at risk of unfair foreign competition.

·End the practices of manufacture in US territories claiming Berry-compliant “Made in the USA” but not paying US minimum wage to workers

·Fund matching to K-12 districts, colleges and universities for workforce training.

If you look at the recent bipartisan budget agreement, or go back and read opposition to the sequester, much of what you see will be the direct result of information, background and context provided by the PNDC.

The PNDC Member of the Year Award is selected by its membership. Companies earning the award must earn the respect of their peers and be recognized for achievement—not just for contribution to advocacy (though that is important) but for corporate leadership, positive business practices, manufacturing practices and what Ingels calls the “care and feeding” of employees.

A New Use For The MALICE Clip?

Monday, December 23rd, 2013


Tactical Tailor provided some gear for the movie, “Elysium”. Some of the kit was really cool and wasn’t sure how, or even if, their stuff had been used, until they watched the DVD and then noticed a MALICE clip being used for cable management. Now, I’m sure somebody is going to tell us that they do this ALL of the time, but I’ve never seen anyone do it. To me, it’s pretty interesting to see what happens when you give a piece of gear to someone who doesn’t know what it’s for. Sometimes they’ll surprise you.
