Drop Zone Tactical helps you get organised

Canada’s Drop Zone Tactical continue to roll out good stuff in PenCott.  First they introduced their awesome 3rd Generation Ops Pants, Hybrid Shirt, their legendary Recce Smock and their door-kicker approved Assault Pack in our equally awesome and legendary “GreenZone” colourway.  Now they’re expanding their line up of GreenZone gear.


The Shriner Binder Cover

The Shriner Binder Cover is made to fit most small 3-ring binders and is rugged enough for field use.


Multi-Tool / OC Pouch

The Drop Zone Multi Tool/OC Gen 2 Pouch, is an expandable cylinder pouch with a tongue flap, sized for large multi-tools or 50 gm. OC aerosol canisters.


V765 Full Zip Utility Pouch

The V765 (7 inches x 6.5 inches) Full Zip Utility Pouch is a large clam-shell, full zip-opening utility pouch that was spun off from a large individual first aid kit pouch.


All of these products are made with our mil-spec 1000 Denier textured nylon that has a durable water resistant coating and a urethane backing for extra weather protection.

Extreme Gear Labs – always creating

A few days ago EGL posted an intriguing photo on their Facebook page showing the beginnings of an unidentified project using 500D Cordura “Badlands” fabric…

A day or so later they posted a second photo, this time showing the work-in-progress status of the project – but still no hints as to what it would eventually be…

Finally, they posted a photo of the finished product…

And the mystery was cleared up by an article on Soldier Systems Daily explaining that it is an Engineering Proof-of-Concept for a stock-mounted Blow Out Kit with CAT Tourniquet pocket, designed to attach to an AK-type skeleton stock.


Badlands Nalgene Carrier from Whiskey Two-Four

Renowned for being sturdy, well-engineered, and BPA-free, Nalgene water bottles are a very popular way to carry your favourite refreshing beverage – or even just pure clean water – on the trail or out in the back of beyond.  Even if your adventures only take you a couple of hundred yards from the car park at your favourite paintball or airsoft site, a Nalgene is still a great way to stay hydrated – but you need something equally good to carry your Nalgene in…

Presenting the solution to your needs from Whiskey Two-Four:


Their brand new MOLLE Nalgene Pouch in PenCott-Badlands enables you to strap a Nalgene on anywhere you’ve got some spare PALS webbing real-estate.  The pouch features a zip top, MALICE clips included, internal stiffeners so it holds its shape, and optional PALS webbing for attaching small pouches for water purification tablets, a compass or GPS, etc.


Available to order on Whiskey Two-Four’s website.


SpecOpShop PenCott Hats, and more

Texas-based SpecOpShop is now shipping their Spec Ops Boonie Hat in Badlands and GreenZone featuring an innovative Zig-Zag grid of flattened 550-cord for attaching scrim and foliage for even better individual camouflage performance.


SpecOpShop is also now importing and selling the “operator-style” Alpha Tactical Hat from Molay Uniform Division.

And finally, SpecOpShop are happy to announce that they have overcome the difficulties that had caused some backlog in their production, and they are now sewing at full-steam to fulfill customer orders.
