Zulu Nylon Gear 2

Zulu Nylon Gear is almost an insider tip, as we’re familiar with a lot of stuff from them – Zulu sews on behalf for ITS Tactical. Today we’re presenting the RSCR Chest Rig – this is the link to our review. We talked to Joel Zaruba about what he does otherwise.

Joel Zaruba Zuly Nylon Gear

SPARTANAT: Zulu Nylon Gear is a small gear manufacturer from USA. What are you specialized in?

SPARTANAT: The first of your products we were familiar with is your Visor panels. What else is typical for you?

Zulu Nylon Gear: The MOLLE Visor Panel is a very popular item from our line. The Mega Admin Pouch is also very popular.The new RSCR Chest Rig is our latest product and I hope people like it! It has gone through several years of evolution before I felt it was ready. My goal was to build a minimalist rig that carries only the essentials in a slim, comfortable format but still works well in a “tactical” environment beyond just the flat range.

SPARTANAT: Maybe more people know your work under the name ITS Tactical. You produce their tactical nylon? How did this come?

Zulu Nylon Gear: We’ve done worked on the design and manufacturing for many of the ITS Tactical nylon products – look here at ITS Shop . I knew Bryan from ITS from the very beginning of the blog and the work on nylon products naturally came from that.

Nintendo 2DS Tactical Case from Zulu Nylon Gear

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

The Nintendo 2DS is an excellent man-portable, field use time wasting device. The single piece construction minimizes moving parts making it particularly durable and well suited for use in a tactical environment. However, the dual screens are left exposed and susceptible to impact and scratching. The Zulu Nylon Gear 2DS Tactical Case was developed as a dedicated, protective sleeve to cover the dual screens when loose in your ruck or when mounted to MOLLE web gear. The 2DS Tactical Case also features 3 slots for additional game cartridges and a large Velcro loop field on the flap for displaying morale patches. The Case can be mounted to any MOLLE compatible platform with 2 Short MALICE Clips (not included). It is currently available in Black, Coyote Brown, Ranger Green, Multicam, and ATACS AU. As with all other Zulu Nylon Gear products, the 2DS Tactical Case is made in the USA with high quality, milspec materials.

Zulu Nylon Gear to Offer MOLLE Quivers

Monday, April 8th, 2013

It’s official, Zulu Nylon Gear has announced that they will be offering the MOLLE Quivers for sale that they originally developed as an April Fool’s gag. Stay tuned for more information on pricing and availability in the coming weeks.


In the meantime, check out the April Fools jokes from the previous two years. Since I know people will ask, the answer is no. Unfortunately the other items cannot be offered for sale.

Zulu Nylon Gear Responds to Recent Anti-2A Legislation with New Products

Monday, April 1st, 2013

Zulu Nylon Gear Introduces The MOLLE Quiver


As stricter gun control laws take effect in state after state, Americans are adapting with new methods to protect their homes and families. In light of recent changes in firearms laws and with more surely to come, Zulu Nylon Gear has begun to shift their product line to support more commonly available, legal weapon systems. Namely, the traditional bow and arrow.


The first product in Zulu Nylon Gear’s new line is the MOLLE Quiver. This is a fully modular arrow quiver system which can be quickly converted to either back or hip style carry modes to facilitate both range and field carry. The user simply clicks into either a shoulder harness, a belt hanger, or direct attach to armor by way of a quick disconnect system using ITW QASM Buckles. These buckles can be adjusted to any location on the Quiver body for the perfect fit thanks to a MOLLE grid running the full length of the tube. The MOLLE grid can also be used to attach other MOLLE/PALS compatible pouches and accessories, such as the ITS Skeletonized Bottle Holder and Tallboy ETA Trauma Kit pouches also made by Zulu Nylon Gear.


Expect to see continuing innovation in tactical load bearing equipment from Zulu Nylon Gear as they adapt to the ever changing tools of the warrior. Other upcoming products in development include discreet carry bags for takedown bows, concealable boxcutter sheaths, and slingshots.

ITS Tactical Releases New Tallboy ETA Trauma Kit

Saturday, January 5th, 2013

ITS ETA Trauma Kit Pouch - Tallboy 01

The Tallboy ETA Trauma Kit and Pouch are the newest additions to the ITS Medical line up and have been in development for over a year with Haley Strategic and Zulu Nylon Gear. Taking the principles of their proven ETA Trauma Kit Pouch, they refined a few features and developed an additional horizontal mounting method.

ITS ETA Trauma Kit Pouch - Fatboy 01

The original ETA Trauma Kit Pouches, now dubbed the “Fatboy” share the refined sewn and color-matched webbing pull handle with removable red Velcro One-Wrap to denote medical components. With a simple pull on the handle, the pouch quickly filets open to provide immediate access to your medical components without delay.

ITS ETA Trauma Kit Pouch - Tallboy 14

The Tallboy ETA Trauma Kit Pouch moves from the wider three column PALS/MOLLE mounting of the Fatboy to a slim two-column mount, taking up no more real estate than a double mag pouch.

They’ve also re-packed their kits to fit in the new Tallboy configuration and you now have the option of ordering Fatboy or Tallboy Trauma Kits. While the new Tallboy vacuum sealed kits will fit in most double mag pouches, they highly recommend a dedicated pouch like the Tallboy ETA Trauma Kit Pouch, or ensuring a proper visual indicator for medical equipment is affixed.

ITS ETA Trauma Kit - Tallboy Fatboy Combo 01

Along those lines, all of the ETA Trauma Kit Pouches, both Fatboy and Tallboy, now come with a Med PVC Patch included. With the new Tallboy pouches, they’ve also included extra short MALICE clips in addition to the set of tall clips.

This ensures you can mount the new Tallboy pouch in any configuration you need to, both horizontally or vertically. MOLLE/PALS aside, you can also thread the short MALICE Clips in a horizontal configuration to easily affix the Tallboy pouch to a standard belt. A battle belt can be used for proper MOLLE/PALS mounting, but isn’t required.

Skeletonized Bottle Holder from ITS Tactical Now Available

Friday, November 16th, 2012

If you use Liberty Bottleworks bottles or other, similar bottles then you know that there isn’t currently a good way to carry them let alone something that is adaptable to a wide variety of belts and platforms. That is, until now.


First off, it’s Made in America. Second, it’s received a slight name change from the original. You see, the new Skeletonized Bottle Holder began its life as the Modular Skeletonized Container Sling. Designed and manufactured by ITS Tactical and Zulu Nylon Gear, we initially mentioned it during Summer OR when it was initially debuted, but now it’s available for purchase.


It incorporates a lightweight minimalist (2.7 oz!) design that features true one-handed operation, full adjustment to handle any container size and mounting to either MOLLE/PALS, or a standard belt.


The Skeletonized Bottle Holder features double-layer webbing as well as a HDPE stiffener for structure and support. They’ve also created a textured pull-tab for a non-slip grip with adjustable shock cord retention to facilitate one-handed container deployment and accommodate any bottle neck size.


The Skeletonized Bottle Holder features a fully-adjustable system in both width and height that can handle multiple container styles and diameters. Using the included PALS attachment system, it can be mounted virtually anywhere, including most any belt size with a simple configuration of the mounting strap.


A short list of compatible bottle designs include Liberty Bottles (both 32 oz and 20 oz), Nalgenes, Klean Kanteens, GI Canteens, Guinness Cans and even plastic water bottles. Available in MultiCam, Coyote Brown and Black.


Modular Skeletonized Container Sling Makes OR Debut

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

Making its debut today at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market is the Modular Skeletonized Container Sling (MSCS), a new collaborative project between ITS Tactical, Zulu Nylon Gear and Liberty Bottleworks.

Designed and manufactured by ITS Tactical and Zulu Nylon Gear right here in America, the MSCS represents a fresh new approach to a bottle carrier. Their goal was to break the mold of current bottle carrier designs that utilize a pouch-like design, adding unnecessary weight and bulk. They’ve certainly succeeded.

Featuring a lightweight skeletonized design made from HDPE stiffened double-layer webbing, textured pull-tab for a non-slip grip and shock cord retention to allow one-handed container deployment, the MSCS is fully adjustable to fit multiple container styles and diameters. It can also be mounted via MOLLE/PALS and adapted to accommodate any belt size.

I am very happy to see this project come to fruition as I have several Liberty Bottles and, other than bottle sleeves on packs, there is no way to carry them efficiently, until now.

Stay tuned for ordering info.
