Sunday Spotlight – M.I.C. Gear

With remembrance day on our doorstep, often we ask “How can I honor our Serving members/Veterans?” What better way than by supporting their small business?

The owner of M.I.C. Gear is a currently serving Navy member and M.I.C. Gear has a number of different items, including a line of chest rig style paintball pod carriers and accessories for MILSIM play, including remote line covers, pouches and universal 1 point slings. All gear is custom and made to order. All equipment has been created, designed and made in Canada.

Preview in new tab(opens in a new tab)

In today’s Maker Monday spotlight,  we’ll be focusing on Privateer Factory:

Pierre is the owner and operator of Privateer Factory, along with his lovely spouse Isabelle. Pierre has been with the Royal Canadian Navy for over 16 years. He is still currently serving with the navy as a Naval Electronic Sensor Operator.

Example of their work: Canadian Veteran – Strong and Free Tee

 

Privateer Factory’s main business is BMX, MTB and Cycling gear. They also enjoy giving back to the Armed Forces community, and this is why they decided to create some designs for their fellow service members and veteran alike.

Introducing CKC Remembers.

Tactical 74 is excited to introduce CKC Remembers!  CKC Remembers was formed by a trio of young Patriotic Canadians in an effort to commemorate and honour our brave first responders including Police, Fire, EMS, Canadian Armed Forces, Dispatchers, Nurses, Corrections, and Ministry of Natural Resources.

CKC Remembers proudly recognize currently serving, retired Veterans, Families and Friends of all our first Responders and Emergency Services and encourage recognition by way of their broad array of products displaying the thin line appropriate to each respective Service. CKC Remembers have two Retired Military parents mentoring them along the way both of which have inspired them in their endeavour.  See these and many more items from CKC Remembers at Tactical 74.
