top 10 gear for 2022
IR Canadian Flag
Since the launch of the new modernized Canadian Uniforms there hasn't been a issued field flag. This 2x4 inch IR Canadian Flag with velcro backing became a much needed addition to any CAF member heading to the field.
Nite Ize S Biner
The ability to attach items to bags, belts, webbing, and even vehicles had made this S biner a staple for anyone that doesnt want to lose there gear in the field.
Rothco Skull Cap
When it comes to issued kit, the winter hat comes as one of the top must replace items. The issued wool winter hat is often described as too thick, hot and heavy. Moving to this lightweight cotton skull cap gives the wearer extreme comfort during the cold season.
Lowa Renegade II N GTX
This boot was brand new for 2021, and man did it ever fly off the shelves. This boot arrived with a gortex liner, and wider fit then the Z8-S, which quickly became this seasons must have boot. This boot was so hot at certain points of the year it was completely sold out in Canada.
SGS Reversible Jacket
Back in Jan 2020 Snugpak decided to stop making there extremely popular reversible Sleeka Elite Jacket. Replacing it with a $250.00
non-reversible option. This is where our SGS Jacket comes in. There was a need for a reversible jacket plus add the fact this has a digital outer and you have the top selling Jacket of 2020.
Black Rifle Coffee Company
When we first opened our doors to the public, we made the decision to not sell coffee. Stating "we are not a grocery store". Boy where we wrong! BRCC has become a major player in the Tactical market. This Medium blend outsells all other flavors. And for the first time we have been authorized to sell this online as well as in stores.
Mechanix Fast Fit
You would think most people buying gloves would want Black, But the masses have spoken and its COYOTE. This glove saw some major improvements in 2020 such as touch screen compatibility and reenforced stitching. Combined with its affordable pricing making this the go to glove of the year.
Rothco Moisture Wicking Shirt
Again when CAF soldiers are issued there T-Shirts, they are thick, heavy, and hot during long working days. Replacing the old cotton shirt for this light weight moisture wicking shirt was a no brainer. Keeping soldiers cool and dry, this item came in as our number 3 must have for the year.
SGS Cadpat Poncho
Canada's weather is one thing. But ask any CAF Soldier that has to go to the field, and the training area weather has a mind of its own. This super light weight poncho could be packed super tight, and small in its mini bivy bag. Making it a perfect addition to any one out in the field. So if your hunting in a stand, or out on sentry shift this well keep the elements off of you.
TIC Ventilated OTW
To no ones surprise, the hottest item of 2021 was the TIC Ventilated OTW. When we looked at what OTWs where on the market, we decided we could make a better design. With the Help of Tactical Innovations Canada our dream came true. This shirt was designed with a coyote core colour to match the T-shirts the soldiers are currently issued not the Olive that we currently see on the market. Next we provided a ventilation / stretchable material in the sides, and arm pit regions, making this lighter, and more breathable then other models. We made the core 2 inches longer to prevent untucking during activities, as well reduced the sleeves length by 1 inch. This is the first OTW in Canada that was made for Soldiers by Soldiers.
