About Us

BDS Tactical Gear is a leading manufacturer of tactical nylon gear to the US military, law enforcement agencies and private parties world wide. As a veteran owned and operated business (the entire management staff consists of US Marine veterans) we understand the importance of quality craftsmanship and durable materials. We have Been there and done that and know what works, and what does not.

                With that in mind, BDS Tactical has developed a production process that is not used (to our knowledge) by any other tactical nylon manufacturer. We offer a line of "Variable Ops" products that are fully customizable by the end user. They can literally have a rig built to their specifications that will suit their operational needs perfectly. That may be a fully loaded chest rig with as many pouches as can be put on the rig, or a basic PALS/MOLLE platform where pouches can be added and removed as the mission requires. In either form, the rig is built FOR THEM right here in Oceanside, CA.

                As with our V-Ops products, ALL BDS Tactical Gear is Built To Order for the end user. Something that is quickly built such as a sling, belt or single pouch is sent out on a production schedule that has been designed to get the product out to the customer quickly, while still maintaining the rugged quality that we have come to be known for. Orders for multiple pouches, gear bags and packs may take slightly longer, but again you can rest assured that when you receive your gear it will be of the best quality available from anyone!

                From the moment you place your order through our website, or call one of our Customer Service Associates you will be kept up to date on your order. Through each phase of production you will receive automated email updates telling you exactly where your order is and what is being done with it. When the order has passed quality control and gone to shipping you will receive a final email with tracking information so that you can follow it through its travels.

                If at any time during the process you have questions, comments or concerns about your order feel free to contact us via email or phone and one of our dedicated Customer Service Associates will gladly help you. If you are in the area and would like to stop by, give us a call first so that we can plan to have someone available to walk you through and show you the facility. It is not uncommon to have local law enforcement, US Marines or US Navy Seals at our facility asking questions and/or assisting us with product development.
