Sheriff of Baghdad Combat Bands Now Available Exclusively from MRE

Sunday, June 24th, 2012

For years guys have been using retaining bands (rubber bands) for a variety of chores but they’re an air item, designed to break under load. The folks at MRE had customers asking for the issue item but they aren’t really for what most guys use them for such as attaching kit, taking the rattle out of magazines and other gear, and securing items to your weapon’s stock.

It really doesn’t make sense to secure your equipment with something that’s meant to break. So MRE worked to develop an improved combat band. I’ve had a few for awhile now and used them for several application. They don’t stretch as much as a traditional rubber band but they are one hell of a lot beefier.

Constructed of an IR signature reducing formulated silicone, SOB Combat Bands are available in Black, Coyote, Foliage Green and Tan in packs of 3, 5 or 10.

Additionally, Mission Ready Equipment is offering FREE Shipping on ALL orders of $75 or more.

Kyle Defoor on Mountain Khakis

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

In his role as MRE brand ambassador, Kyle Defoor produced a great video on why he wears Mountain Khakis. I have a few pairs as well and like Kyle, my first pair were the Mountain Utility model. They wear like iron. I’m also wearing a lot of Kuhl and Arc’teryx with two pairs of TAD Force 10s thrown in the mix as well as well. There are a lot of good pants out there and Kyle makes a compelling case as to how you can go all in on one brand. Mountain Khakis not only does pants. Based on my visit to their booth at last Outdoor Retailer, they are definitely worth a look for shirts and jackets as well. It might also get some of you jazzed up to know that MK is owned by Freedom Group who also owns Remington and its affiliate firearms companies.

Salomon Quest in Brown – MRE Exclusive

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

Mission Ready Equipment had the access to identify an operational requirement for a more arid environment friendly color for the Salomon Quest 4D GTX boot and the foresight to make it happen. They got with the guys at Über SOF (who as far as we are concerned would be Salomon Tactical if there was such a thing) and identified a supply of Quests in Brown manufactured for the European market. Together they worked to convince Salomon to bring the entire stock to the US. Now, they are available to you, exclusively from MRE.

As you can see, they blend well with both AOR1 and MultiCam. The Quest is an awesome boot and is comfortable right out of the box. The Quest is built on the same last as the Salomon XA Pro 3D running shoe which is Salomon’s most popular style. The sole relies on Salomon’s 4D Chassis. The outsole has an ascending lug pattern in the front of the sole, and a braking pattern in the rear. Beneath the foot is a cushioning pad, while the chassis protects against twisted ankles, and then an additional cushioning pad to absorb rocks and roots underfoot (4 layers= 4D). Finally, the GTX in the style name stands for Gore-tex and these boots will not only stand up to the terrain but also the weather.

There are only a couple of hundred pairs available. Get yours before their gone from

It’s important for those outside industry to get an idea of how much goes into those garments you wear. While New Zealand-based Icebreaker specializes in merino wool, a similar tale can be told for most any product you use. The more complex the product, the larger the supply chain.

Icebreaker tactical products are available from Mission Ready Equipment.
