May 4th marks the birthday of Tactical Tailor’s founder, Logan Coffey. He was taken from us too early in a tragic accident, but we carry on his legacy every day by building the best quality tactical gear available. We like to commemorate this date ever year with a sale in his honor to get the gear that he built with his own hands into yours.


Tactical Tailor – Raider Pack

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

The Pacific Northwest Pack Series began as a project to fulfil a solicitation for a suite of SOCOM packs. Our designs for this solicitation were brought about with input from actual SOF soldiers who took these packs to the field throughout the design process and brought back their impressions and recommendations for improvements. We took their advice back to our designers who then continually refined the packs until they met the exacting standards of these elite soldiers.

The Raider pack was designed as an alpine style pack for long range while carrying lighter loads. The Raider stands out in the Pacific Northwest Pack series, as unlike the other packs in the series, it is built with its own internal frame, straps and hip belt with nothing else needed to be ready to go. With a 3100 cubic inch capacity and an empty weight of 5.2 pounds, it truly is a light weight, long range pack.

Just because we designed the Raider as a light weight pack, does not mean we scrimped on the details. This pack is loaded with all the features you would expect from a Tactical Tailor pack. Starting at the top, you’ll find a clamshell style zipper that will let you access the entire contents of your pack. No more digging through your entire pack to find that one missing item. You’ll also find left and right side zippered access to hydration, an RTO zipper pass through and an oversized pocket on both sides for rifle buttstocks, 84mm rounds or just about anything else you can think to strap to the side of this pack. Rounding out the details are a heavy duty carry handle, multiple MOLLE attachment points, integrated load lifters and side compression straps. The Raider is also STRLLS and H Harness compatible for airborne operations.

Tactical Tailor – Regiment Pack

Thursday, March 31st, 2016

The Pacific Northwest Pack Series began as a project to fulfil a solicitation for a suite of SOCOM packs. Our designs for this solicitation were brought about with input from actual SOF soldiers who took these packs to the field throughout the design process and brought back their impressions and recommendations for improvements. We took their advice back to our designers who then continually refined the packs until they met the exacting standards of these elite soldiers.

The Regiment pack is a larger rucksack, intended to carry heavy sustainment loads on patrol or reconnaissance. With a total capacity of over 5000 cubic inches, this bag is heavy duty, but at only 5.5 pounds, it is not heavy-weight. Our designers have worked hard to incorporate the most useful features you might need in a long range pack while not wasting your time with useless bells and whistles that only look good as bullet points.

All the standard features are here, like a reinforced carry handle, stainless drain holes on all the exterior pockets, RTO pass-through zipper and side compression straps. Beyond that, you will also find pass throughs on the side pockets for odd sized items like ski poles or shooting sticks, left and right side external zippers for cable or hydration pass through, separate zipper access to the main compartment, internal attachment points for our PRC-117G radio pouch, an air mesh map pocket inside the top flap and much more. The pack is also STRLLS and H harness compatible for airborne operations.

Along with this new line of packs, we’ve also introduced upgrades to our traditional straps and belt in the form of our Low Profile and Low Profile Adjustable Super Straps and Ergo Super Belt. These new designs add even more comfort along with added functionality and adjustability. The Regiment Pack is also available in a discounted kit form which includes the pack, our Fight Light MALICE Pack Frame, Low Profile Adjustable Super Straps and 34” Ergo Super Belt.


Tactical Tailor Pacific Northwest Pack Series Pricing

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

Tactical Tailor’s exciting new Pacific Northwest Pack series will be available to order on March 20th.


Tactical Tailor – Pacific Northwest Pack Series

Wednesday, March 16th, 2016

Tactical Tailor prepared a press release on their new line of Pacific Northwest Packs, which can be read below:


The PNW Pack Series has been kicking around in Tactical Tailor’s design shop for about 18 months.  Obviously Tactical Tailor geeks out over backpacks and we love the great Pacific North West.  We love the fit, form and function that a lot of the climbing/alpine packs offered in the mountains, but the problem that consistently surfaced was light weight packs only work well when you put light weight things in them.  A pack that works awesome for camping and climbing in the Cascades would fall apart as soon as you added 2 SAW drums, 100 rounds of 7.62 link, a mortar round and a few 5590 batteries.

We would often joke that the US Military got three things right, the smoking jacket, the poncho liner and the ALICE pack.   Unfortunately ever since, the US Military has been trying to get rid of them once they saw that they worked and the troops loved them;  well, as much as anyone can love a piece of GI equipment…

The Regiment-Front

Tactical Tailor staff travels the US about 30-40 weeks a year doing trade shows and visiting our nation’s war fighters.  The two things we hear consistently is that the ALICE/MALICE frame is king and that our supporters wish we would build a new pack since they can’t wear their old one out and need an excuse to buy a new one.

We started thinking about how we could combine our love of the MALICE pack with more updated outdoor design features that we loved and the PNW Pack Series was born.

Tahoma Tote-Front

In 2015, Larry Coffey, the owner of Tactical Tailor and the father of the late Tactical Tailor founder Logan Coffey, mentioned that he would love to have a team in the 2016 Bataan Memorial Death March.  As we all learned early in our military careers, a suggestion from the commander is really an order, so we wasted no time in starting our training.

As we were working through the design process we carried these packs up Mount Si, Tiger Mountain, Mount Rainer (aka Mount Tahoma) and along the Nisqually River with military weight loads.  We post holed in the snow, trekked through frozen fog and walked in white out conditions. The mountains wasted no time in telling us what we got right and what we got painfully wrong.  We’d hit the design table, make some changes and hit the mountains again the next weekend.  Some of the great new features that resulted from these experiences are an adjustable suspension system with load lifters, low profile super straps, outward cinching super belts, compression straps and exterior access zips. Plus, if you like the look of these new straps and belts, they will be available for sale separately too.

The Nisqually-Front

Tactical Tailor is looking forward to walking our packs in the Bataan memorial Death March on March 20 at White Sands, NM and they will be available for customers to order that same day. It’s been an amazing journey back to our roots rucking our own designs and we look forward to sharing them with everyone that has supported us over the years.  We hope to see everyone at White Sands or whatever post, camp or base we land at after that. Of course, if you’re ever at Fort Lewis, come see us, we have a Starbucks machine!
