So pretty new to a lot of topics on the site even though a lot of them have become huge area of interest. One brand I keep reading (everywhere not just here) is TAD. Which I'll admit everything I've read is praise. Haven't found a bad review yet. So my interest is peaked even more. The only problem is EVERYTHING I want on their site is sold out. Is this pretty normal for them this time of the year? Do the usually restock after Christmas?
Thanks.

The best way to get what you want is to sign up for their emails. They are often out of stock on popular items and will let people know through facebook/email lists.

Their stuff is great... High quality and worth the money (especially their rs cargo shorts and I cant stress this enough).

 

If you want one of the knives or axes its better to get your order listed with the actual manufacturer. TAD versions sell out in minutes and are low production versions made for them.

I have also heard good things. It is a lot of money, curious how worth it it is.

Got my eye on a few. I like the ranger hoodie and the light speed pack. The jacket seems high but really it's pretty close to northface's jackets that have polar tec. The pack seems a little high but when I read reviews they are all praise. Haven't found a bad review yet. Other than availability!

yeah their availability sucks because everyone buys their merchandise so fast.  I think next time I am in SF, i am going to swing by their store and see if I have any luck with finding merchandise in stock.

TAD > Arc'Teryx.......

 

However you can always get Arc'Teryx. I have some TAD stuff... I tend to buy it off ebay more than anywhere else. There are some unscrupulous people out there that will buy EVERYTHING that comes in stock and put it on ebay, especially when it comes to patches, packs and tools. Not so much on clothes. For instance the TAD Tracker 1" patch that was 3.50 originally I bought off ebay 18 of them for 14.00 each. Some patches go for up to 100 bucks...

Called the guys at TAD yesterday and after a few question I pulled the trigger on the Ranger hoodie.  The older one. Got a pretty good deal on it too. Can't wait to check it out.  Hope they are as awesome as everything I've read.

TAD has a super strong following. It's sometimes cult like.
Their gear is good, but they are in a popular niche market. That said, I have a few Dauntless TAD knives, they clothing is well made (again on par with some other similar).
But they stand behind it, keep designs and such very current. Made in US.
I have Recon and Force10 pants.
I wear a Black ShagMaster almost daily.

So overall great. Eye for details. Things others don't think about (placement of pockets, bi direction zippers for handgun access, etc)

Quick update... My TAD ranger hoodie came in today. First dealing with TAD.
First impressions:
1) customer service is first class
2) jackets seems very well built
3) the only thing I have to compare to is north face and TAD smokes NF.
Will definitely do more business with them. Can't wait to see how it holds up.

Irritating TAD story:

 

I was down in SF taking one of their "Core" classes at their main store. They had a patch board on display with all of their currently-in-maunufacture patches up. I picked one out to buy and the dude told me it was currently out of stock but that it'd be re-stocked soon.

 

I asked if it'd be ok to buy the display one. He shot me down! Here I am traveling out of state and paying full price for a class with them and all I want is a stupid patch to advertise for them and was met with a "no".

 

But yes, all of their stuff seems very nice. In my part of the county you can't go to any tactical-related event and not see a bunch of TAD gear running around.

I love TAD gear, I'm a big fan of the force 10 cargos. I also purchase most of my TAD from eBay simply because it's sold out on TAD.
