Who Are We?

My name is Doug Taylor, one of the original owners of Orca Tactical.  I'm sure you have always heard stories of how new businesses were started in the owner's garage.  That is definitely true in our case.  Orca was born in the garage of our home out in beautiful Washington state.  And it all started from a busted molle EMT pouch that spilled contents all over the floor.  And this was the 3rd first aid pouch in a year we had gone through hoping it would not fail in some manner.

As active as we were in the outdoors, especially in Washington, we had used gear from about each tactical brand you can think of.  And the gear was put through some tough conditions.  We found we had 2 problems:

  • Most gear didn't hold up. Rips at the seams, straps failing, bad design, zippers sticking, misaligned molle webbing, you get the picture.
  • The cheap gear was just that.  Cheap and not up to extreme use
  • The really high quality gear was too expensive.  Maxpedition and 5.11 has good durable gear but it costs way too much money.

We needed a solution after the latest EMT pouch failure:

  • High quality tactical gear
  • At an affordable price

So we took it upon ourselves to achieve what we were looking for.

The Solution!

We joined up with our buddies over at Joint Base Lewis McChord, home to the elite US Army’s 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team and teamed together to design a great MOLLE first aid pouch first. Then let them run it through drills and field missions to see how it would up.  The result is that EMT pouch is our best seller to date and the rest is history.  

Our goal now is to provide the same quality, craftsmanship, durability and product affordability to the community and to all of you!

We are very proud of what Orca Tactical has come to be and we are so happy to be serving our customers, especially our military, veterans, law enforcement, first responders, firefighters and medics.

Now with the help of our friends at Fort Bragg and Camp Lejeune, Orca pledges to continue to provide you with the best tactical product design, quality and affordability you expect.  And with the best customer service you can find anywhere!
