Eyes On: Gryphon EDC 3 Pack

Sunday, September 18th, 2016


The Gryphon EDC has been one of US PALM’s most popular items for some time. They’re now on the 3RD iteration of the pack, with a number of changes and improvements to the Gryphon v2, and of course from the original. The Breach-Bang-Clear gang got a couple of Gryphon EDC 3s in a few days back, in anticipation of the Trails Found event happening now in the Dragoon Mountains of Arizona.

Among the most current changes US PALM’s “Tactical Jay and Bob” (Rob Anderson and Brandon Finch) have made:

  • Reinforced Access Points [RAP’s]: custom made Hypalon pre-slotted patches to allow for internal pocket access for wires [PTT], drink tubes, etc. to run inside the hollow shoulder straps and not fray at the openings. They have an agency that runs their radios and phones in the internal side pockets, with a power supply, and then run their PTT wires and switches between the pockets and then out the should strap.
  • Lined back of main pocket and admin pocket with loop fastener for a multitude of accessories
  • Updated the mesh back material
  • Changed the zipper pulls from gutted paracord to “Bump” cord.
  • The biggest change to the pack is apparently an overall “tightening up” of the design and a return to the original dimensions, as well as an eye to an upcoming hard-wired series of pouches that would tie a power source (like the Anker 20000 mAH) with a radio, phone, GPS or other piece of electronic equipment inside.

    The Gryphon EDC 3 is made in the USA. More in the coming weeks after we get the chance to work with it for a while.

    Basic specs:

  • Main and Admin Compartment
  • EDC Pocket, Multi-Function and Internal Sidewall Access Pockets
  • Back Panel Access
  • Hydration compatible
  • Spacer Mesh for breathability and comfort
  • Materials: 500d Cordura Nylon
  • Armor option (Threat Level Protection when armor added: Tested to NIJ-06 IIIA Standard)
  • Volume: Main Compartment: 25L (1,550 in^3) / Total Pack: Approx. 30L (1,850 in^3)
  • Weight: 2.6 lbs (41.6 oz) without armor / 4.1 lbs (65.9 oz) with XL IIIA Soft Armor Panel

    – ACS Collar
    – Draco HBP
    – Gryphon EDC

    Rob Anderson Buys US PALM

    Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

    Pretty exciting new for Rob. He and I are old sparring partners and I know he has been working on this for awhile now so I’m glad to hear that his dream has come to fruition. I can’t wait to see what he has in store for US PALM.


    Scottsdale, AZ – US PALM, the industry leader in AK47 accessories and soft armor solutions, is pleased to announce that founder Robert Anderson has purchased US PALM [US Primary Armament Logistical Manufacturing] from its holding company SGC Global Industries. Anderson founded US PALM in the spring of 2009 and has seen successful growth each year since its creation. With flagship products such as the AK30 magazine and the Defender soft armor solutions, US PALM looks forward to long term continued growth under Anderson’s direction as President of US PALM, LLC.

    With US PALM entering its 5th year of business, the transition away from SGC Global Industries comes during a growth cycle for each company. “The timing was right on both sides to execute the break-away,” Anderson stated, “PALM will benefit from more individualized attention and a more focused organizational structure. My goal with PALM has always been to fill the gaps that exist in the industry with quality gear and I look forward to returning to US PALM’s roots”

    Anderson will apply a renewed focus and energy to US PALM by realigning with the original goals of the company: to create gear for the modern warfighter and innovative solutions with real world purpose. US PALM will release information on product launches and new partnerships in Q2 of 2014 and looks forward to capitalizing on new and existing opportunities under Anderson’s ownership.

    During the transition period, US PALM will continue normal operations from their current Scottsdale facility. In late Q2 2014 US PALM will relocate to a new larger facility in North Phoenix, currently under construction, to meet expanded production needs.
