SHOT Show: Marz Tactical Gear

Marz is an up-and-coming tactical gear company based out of Phoenix, Arizona. Their gear is designed to fulfill the functional needs of service members and those in need of dependable, rugged gear. And perhaps best of all is the fact that all their gear is designed and made in the USA. I was able to stop by the Marz booth at SHOT Show 2015 and speak to the reps, which also gave me a chance to get a hands-on look at their gear. In addition to the products Marz carries on a regular basis they will also work with the customer to create gear according to specific needs (minimum order may be required).

Here are a few of their current and new items for 2015:

Tourniquet Pouch

The tourniquet pouch comes with either a MOLLE-compatible or belt loop option. It’s designed to be accessed with one hand and has a medical cross embroidered onto the front for fast identification. In addition the pouch itself is wide enough the user can access the tourniquet and replace it without a struggle; ease of use is a must for medical gear.
