Hi, my name is Andy and i'm the owner of Gadsden Dynamics.
I wanted to take a few minutes to share some thoughts with our fellow customers and followers regarding who we are as a company and what we want to accomplish as we grow. I tend to ramble when I write and sometimes struggle with getting a clear point across, so I am going to be as clear and to the point as possible.
There are three things that we strive for and that I want to define us as a company:
Let's face it, there is a TON of tactical gear out there and a lot of it is excellent quality. However, we have noticed a growing trend that we aren't very fond of, and that is the "I want to look like a badass Army guy with as many pouches, pockets, camo, PALS webbing, and weapons on as possible". Don't get me wrong, there is a time and place for having heavy equipment and a lot of gear but for your average civilian trying to be more prepared, that is almost never going to be needed.
Our designs are focused on providing the prepared civilian with innovative gear solutions that are high quality, low profile and practical. We want to encourage civilians to better equip themselves both with gear and training. Generally speaking, you need gear that you can carry around and it needs to last a long time, and it needs to be covert. It's the same concept as concealed carry versus open carry - you don't want to be advertising that you have guns and gear when you are driving around the local town. It draws unneeded attention and therefore makes you stick out to the bad guys.
I do not have a military background, but i've trained with some great instructors, one of whom is John Mosby from Mountain Guerrilla who I highly respect and largely have to thank for the direction we have taken with our business. Over the last few years i've really been able to work through a variety of gear and have come to realize that I want gear that is as minimal as possible while still giving me the essentials for a gunfight or survival situation. You MUST be able to MOVE with your gear on, and move as quickly as possible. Our gear is specific to that end.
100% American Made gear made with 100% Berry Compliant materials, tested by trained civilians, law enforcement and military members - need I say more? Our gear is not only made with the best materials, but we also are very focused on quality and durability. We double and often even triple stitch our gear for durability and longevity. We test our gear before posting it on the market to ensure it fits our criteria for quality, functionality, and durability.
When you click "Buy" on our website, we want you to feel confident and comfortable in your decision to buy from us. We stand strongly behind our products, and we will absolutely work with you if you ever have any issues with the gear you have purchased from us. When you contact us, we want you to feel like you are talking to a friend and not some large business customer service employee. We want to show through as being professional and personable to communicate with.
We are very excited for what the future holds for us and are very greatful for YOU, our customers and followers who have helped us grow!
