I had a great conversation with Joel Zaruba from Zulu Nylon Gear last month. We haven’t heard much from Zulu lately but Joel is making a renewed push to get the word out on his gear this year and I think that’s great because he sells some really awesome kit. I still use his Mega Admin Pouch and Joel was kind enough to send over a couple of other very cool items for us to review. Stay tuned!
We also heard from a manufacturer that is making a push into the U.S. market. Direct Action, LLC is Helikon-Tex’s independent gear brand. From afar, the designs and raw materials being used in their packs coupled with reasonable pricing checks all the boxes and therefore I’m really looking forward to reviewing their gear.
They might prove to be a viable option for those who are willing to consider products made outside the U.S. but looking for something different versus the usual stuff from 5.11, Hazard 4, Grey Ghost Gear, etc.
Look for reviews on Direct Action gear coming this Spring.
