4/2/13 Update: As most of you have figured out, this was an April Fools goof that we thought you’d enjoy. It also looks like many of you enjoyed it so much that you are interested in this becoming a real product. Well, Zulu Nylon Gear was listening and is considering making a few. Be sure to chime in on the Facebook post if you’re interested.
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.
Designed and manufactured by ITS Tactical and Zulu Nylon Gear right here in America, the Skeletonized Bottle Holder represents a fresh new approach to the typical bottle carriers on the market today. We set out to break the mold of current pouch-like designs that add unnecessary weight and bulk.
We’ve accomplished this by creating a lightweight minimalist design that features true one-handed operation, full adjustment to handle any container size and mounting to either MOLLE/PALS, or a standard belt. [Read More…]

There are many different flavors of rifle mag pouches out there, flapped, non-flapped, polymer, kydex and even reverse flapped. Before we answer the question of whether the lids from mag pouches get in the way on a reload, let’s talk a bit about retention. It’s impossible to talk about the reason for magazine flaps without mentioning retention.
Retention on mag pouches is either managed by elastic webbing or shock cord in traditional nylon mag pouches that either have no lid, like a shingle, or in pouches with a removable lid taken off. This can be sufficient for most activities that the average shooter finds themselves in while at the range, but when you throw running, climbing or other athletic activities into the mix, magazines can work themselves free and no one wants to loose valuable ammo. Valuable both in terms of cost and especially its value in a real world scenario where each round counts.
The possibility of having mags fall out can be increased when a single mag is absent from a double rifle mag pouch too. In this case, unless you’re running a flapped pouch or doubled up polymer/kydex pouch specifically designed to still retain that other mag, there’s almost no retention still on that mag left in the pouch. A flap on a pouch like this can be re-secured over that single mag to retain it. This may all seem like common sense, but I wanted to go over it for those that may not be familiar with all the options out there for mag pouches and retention. [Read More…]
Produced exclusively for ITS by Zulu Nylon Gear, the Gen 2 Holster Insert and Shock Cord Insert are now in stock and ready to ship. The video and following article talk about the upgraded the Holster Insert and development of the Shock Cord Insert.
It’s no secret that we’re huge supporters of Zulu Nylon Gear and have thought highly of their craftsmanship since the beginning days of ITS Tactical when we first reviewed their Mega Admin Pouch and have gone on to develop our own products with them.
We’re also thankful to have been involved in the T&E process of the M4 Double when Zulu was first manufacturing these. This review of the M4 Double Mag Pouch has been a long time coming and we hope you look at its evolution as an advance forward from traditional mag pouches, as we do. [Read More…]
The suspense that’s been killing some of you is finally lifted! We’re stoked today to announce our ETA Trauma Kit Pouch made exclusively for us by Zulu Nylon Gear!
The ITS Tactical ETA Trauma Kit Pouch was born out of the necessity in developing both a pouch that could hold our Vacuum Sealed ETA Trauma Kit, as well as the individual components of the kit if the end user needs to break the seal, or wants faster access to certain items.
We worked with Zulu Nylon Gear for nearly a year to design what we feel is one of the best medical pouches on the market today. With a simple pull on the red handle, the pouch quickly filets open to provide immediate access to your medical components without delay. [Read More…]
