Operator Series Of Backpacks From Tactical Tailor ‘Fit Most Any Activity’

Tactical Tailor is known for designing and manufacturing high-quality American- made tactical gear for the military and law enforcement communities. What many may not be aware of is that many of their products are also ideal for camping, shooting and many other outdoor sporting activities.

Aside from tactical vests and modular pouches, Tactical Tailor offers a full line of backpacks in various sizes to cover most any activity. Their most popular line of packs, the Operator Series, covers everyday carry all the way to a multi-day trip to the outdoors.

The Urban Operator is a discreet everyday carry pack, complete with a zippered laptop compartment, ideal for school, the office or a day of hiking.

The Modular Operator is a step up and compares to a traditional ‘Three Day Pack’ in size and features. It can also be used as a daily carry pack, but has plenty of room for a stay outdoors.

The largest pack in the Operator line, the Extended Range Operator, is perfect for long backpacking trips or multiple days in the field. It features a large compartment for everything you might need and a built-in frame for support.

Finally, the Removable Operator is a small lightweight pack that can be worn alone with its hidden straps or attached directly to larger packs like the Extended Range Operator when a little bit more space is needed.

Tactical Tailor offers a 30-day return policy, as well as a lifetime limited warranty covering materials and workmanship. Check out their full line of American-made products at

Montana Canvas Produces Top Hunting, Family Camping Tents

Any hunter who has spent a week or two in a high-country hunting camp values a quality wall tent. Offering protection from the elements, it becomes a home away from home, and quite often a welcome sight at the end of a hard day. Long preferred by outfitters wanting a stable base camp, they have become the first choice of many outdoor enthusiasts.

The wall tent, also known as the cabin tent, has also become a great family weekend tent. The internal free-standing frames have made this all possible with set-up times taking about 30 to 45 minutes.

Montana canvas offers sizes from 8x10x5 on up to 18x23x5 and have models available in a choice of several tent fabrics: 10 ounce cotton, 12 ounce cotton, or a lightweight relite polyester-based material.

All are treated to be waterproof, mildew resistant and flame retardant.

Our basic tent features consist of 5-foot sidewalls, a 12-inch sodcloth around the perimeter which provides weather- tight seal; reinforced corners and ridgelines and eaves. Also standard is a stove jack with a weather flap and a heavy zipper door with a buckled 6-inch flap.

All of Montana canvas tents come with a storage bag, 200 feet of rope and rope tension adjusters.

The legacy of the wall tent continues today, as it is the most comfortable and meaningful way to introduce children and adults to the outdoor experience. Our new and innovative designs insure our customers of the highest standards and construction, materials and comfort.

Our wall tents have passed the test of time, with families handing down tents from one generation to another, along with precious memories.

Lopi Introduces the GreenStart Wood Stove Igniter

Starting your wood stove has never been easier, as Lopi has revolutionized the way consumers today start wood fires. Much like Charles Kettering’s invention of the electric automobile ignition 100 years ago, the GreenStart igniter system has evolved the ignition of fire in a spectacular way and has become the greatest innovation in wood heating in over 100 years.

Starting a fire in your wood stove is now as convenient as pushing a button. No longer is the mess of starting a fire with matches and newspapers a concern, as it has been eliminated entirely by this breakthrough new igniter system. Fireplace safety has increased, and there is no longer a need to leave doors ajar to promote the fire start up.

The GreenStart system works much like a blacksmith bellows. A compressor forces 1,400 degree preheated air into the firebox directly onto the wood source, giving a clean, fast, smoke-free start up. This combination of the igniter and bellows is the brilliance of this design exclusively patented by Lopi manufacturer Travis Industries. This system is also ideal for refreshing old fires. Simply add new fuel on top of the old coals, close the door and push the button again. The new GreenStart system instantly elevates combustion temperatures within your stove, immediately establishes a draft, and eliminates the slow and smoky typical wood fireplace start up. The GreenStart Igniter system will start wood burning within two button pushes. After the initial start up, the blower will continue pumping air into the fire, greatly accelerating the start up time. After 15 minutes the blower shuts off. For best results, dry, seasoned wood is required when using the GreenStart system.

The GreenStart ignition option is available on select Lopi wood stoves and wood burning fireplace inserts, and retails for a suggested MSRP of $349. Never before has starting a fire in a wood stove or insert been so simple. Come see the revolutionary GreenStart system in action in our showroom. Visit to find a location near you.
