Pathfinder from TAD

Friday, February 25th, 2011

Triple Aught Design’s new Pathfinder pulls double duty as a mid layer as well as an outer layer thanks to its hardface fleece construction. The Cardigan-style streamlined design is intended to ensure comfort whether worn alone or with plate carrier, harness or pack. TAD’s design philosophy believes that you should be able to move without feeling constrained by the materials or style.

• Polartec’s Thermal Pro, renown for its thermal properties and breathability
• Polartec’s Hardface, abrasion resistant, doesn’t pill and has been treated with a DWR just in case you get caught in a light precipitation
• A single panel running from the cuff, up the arm, and down the torso to the bottom hem enables full range of motion
• Active fit accommodates baselayers and is streamlined enough to wear under another outer layer when needed
• The hardface surface makes it easy to slip into your outer layer as there’s less to “grab onto”
• Two front pockets sewn into the seam for easy access and large storage
• Forearm pocket for quick access to small items


TAD Gear Releases Ranger LT

Friday, February 11th, 2011

SSD readers should be no stranger to Triple Aught Designs. Today, they release the new Ranger LT which is based on the popular Ranger Hoodie. Consider it more of a year-round design. For example, when it’s cooler out, it acts an outerlayer to keep you warm without overheating. When it gets cold, it’s a great mid-layer underneath a hardshell.

Despite its lightweight rating, the Ranger LT is feature laden:
• An active fit streamlined enough to wear under another outer layer when needed
• Manufactured from Polartec Wind Pro (288 weight or 8.5 oz) with a DWR finish (Black SPEAR Fleece was 300 weight)
• Highly breathable and constructed to support a full range of motion
• Aero hood that provides head protection and warmth
• Eight pockets including two chest pockets with media port and D-rings, two upper arm pockets with Velcro patches, media port and d-rings, a left forearm pocket and rear hunters pocket
• The thumbhole cuffs have been sewn into the seam to reduce excess wind from getting in
• Pit vents provide extra breathability
• Chin guard
• Guide wires allow headphones to be neatly threaded down the hoodie and through the media port(s)
• Available in Black, ME Green and UE Gray

TAD Gear Hacked

Thursday, November 19th, 2009

I don’t think any company wants to have to tell their customers something like this but TAD Gear found out last night that their server had been hacked. They placed the following information on their Facebook page and are taking steps to fix things on their end. They recommend that anyone who purchased online from them between August 6, 2009 and November 16, 2009, cancel the card they used and take a hard look at any transactions.

“This notice is to inform our customers of a security incident at TAD Gear. We recently learned that our database was illegally accessed from an external source, and it appears that some customer data were taken, which may include customer names, contact information and credit card data. The possibility of a security breach came to our attention when certain customers notified us that unauthorized charges had appeared on their credit cards. Upon learning of the potential breach of security, TAD Gear immediately initiated an investigation, and took corrective steps based on the advice of an internet security firm. We have also contacted law enforcement.

If you purchased merchandise from TAD Gear on-line between August 6, 2009 and November 16, 2009, and the credit card used to purchase that merchandise is still valid, in order to protect yourself from the possibility of identity theft or misuse of your credit card information, we recommend that you immediately contact the issuer of that credit card and close your account. Tell them that your account may have been compromised. If you want to open a new account, ask your credit card issuer to give you a PIN or password, as this will help control access to the account.

In addition, we recommend that you place a fraud alert on your credit files. A fraud alert lets creditors know to contact you before opening new accounts. Just call any one of the three credit reporting agencies at a number below. This will let you automatically place fraud alerts with all of the agencies. You will then receive letters from all of them, with instructions on how to get a free copy of your credit report from each.

Experian Equifax TransUnion
888 397 3742

When you receive your credit reports, look them over carefully. Look for accounts you did not open. Look for inquiries from creditors that you did not initiate. And look for personal information, such as your home address and Social Security number, which is not accurate. If you see anything you do not understand, call the credit reporting agency at the telephone number on the report.

If you do find suspicious activity on your credit reports, call your local police or sheriff’s office and file a police report of identity theft. Get a copy of the police report. You may need to give copies of the police report to creditors to clear up your records. Even if you do not find any signs of fraud on your reports, we recommend that you check your credit report every three months for the next year. Just call one of the numbers above to order your reports and keep the fraud alert in place.

For more information on identity theft, we suggest that you visit the web site of the California Office of Privacy Protection at www.privacy.ca.gov, or the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/idtheft. If there is anything TAD Gear can do to assist you, please email us at action@tadgear.com, a special email address that we have set up to help answer your questions.”

TAD Gear has just released version 5 (yes 5!) of their Ranger Hoodie. Manufactured from Malden Mills Polartec Windpro Fleece, it continues to feature a four panel construction Alpine cut, thumbhole cuff, and low-profile TAD Gear Aero hood.

Attorney David Goldman gave a great presentation on NFA trusts during the Seminar held Friday evening. After hearing him speak I suggest that anyone who has a trust not specifically written to comply with the National Firearms Act take a look at his services.

AAC had their full line of suppressors on hand including the new Ti-RANT. Constructed of Grade 9 Titanium, heat treated 17-4 PH stainless steel, and high strength hard coat anodized 7075-T6 aluminum alloy, the Ti-RANT integrates AAC’s A.S.A.P. System (Assured Semi Automatic Performance).

Additionally, several vendors were on hand to display their wares in the vendor tent. Attendees had an opportunity to see the latest from a long list of suppressor and firearm producers as well as a few of our favorite soft good manufacturers. Arc’teryx displayed their entire line of LEAF products and had a couple of under the table samples of their new line coming out this Winter. Sorry, no sneak peeks; yet.

Triple Aught Designs had a great booth and was well represented by Mack and Dan. In addition to several of their new garments, they had a prototype of the upcoming Gryphon glove. They have put a lot of work into these and should be available this Fall.

Soldier Systems Daily would like to thank AAC for their hospitality as well as all of the vendors who took time to speak with us. You will be seeing future articles based on several of these products. Finally, a big thanks to Monster who provided free drinks through out the day.
