Arktis Ltd launches new website

Established in 1985, Arktis Ltd. is one of the Founding Fathers of the revolution in soldiers’ equipment that has been going on for the past 25+ years.  But, whilst Arktis have always been known for great products, they’ve never had a great web presence.  Well, that changed today – with the launch of their all-new website!


The new website is easy and intuitive to navigate through, offering several different ways in fact to quickly and easily get to the section or product that you’re interested in, and it also features great hi-quality product imagery throughout.  The one thing that I find a bit a bit surprising / confusing is that they now list everything by its model number rather than its name – its only when you click on the item that you discover, for example, that “A110” is the “Hot Climate Shirt”.

Grey Ghost Gear and Tactical Tailor Announce Strategic Partnership

Hot News from Tactical Tailor and Grey Ghost Gear:

“We have gotten into the fashion of talking of cavalry tactics, artillery tactics, and infantry tactics. This distinction is nothing but a mere abstraction. There is but one art, and that is the tactics of the combined arms.”
— Maj. Gerald Gilbert, The Evolution of Tactics, 1907

“Shit, it’s the Blues Brothers!”
— Matt Murphy, 1980

ALCON: Bring it in, take a knee, listen up. Tactical Tailor is joining Grey Ghost Gear in a strategic alliance the likes of which hasn’t been seen since Jake got out of prison and rejoined Elwood Blue.

Tactical Tailor is a Tacoma, Washington based manufacturer of US-made, Berry Amendment compliant tactical gear. Grey Ghost Gear is a ‘boutique’ manufacturer of bad ass niche kit headquartered in Dalton, ID. Both companies are Veteran owned, and GGG is Service Connected Disables Veteran classified company. Like the Blues Brothers, both can do big things by themselves…but it’s when they get together that things get epic.

“The two companies have done some work together before, but not like this,” says CEO (and former 2/75 Ranger) Casey Ingels. “Tac Tailor will be working with Grey Ghost much more consistently. We’ll leverage the unique strengths of both companies to increase our offering to the end users that will let us put some things in the field that will change everything.”
