All Hazard 4 packs, bags and apparel share features that are currently the industry gold-standard when durability, function and performance are concerned. Consider buying other manufacturer’s lines in this class (which may retail for less,) but by all measures of quality, they may likely be inferior. Make the considered choice carrying Hazard4® products and be confident knowing you use the best technology, design and manufacturing available.
Most brands use tough, water-shedding fabric, but many are harsh - shredding clothing/skin. Hazard 4 use genuine Cordura® which is all that but with a soft-touch.
Don’t give away your position by jangling your zipper pullers. Hazard 4’s are silent, easy to pull with gloves on, and are field-serviceable.
Professional/tactical gear has lots of webbing, so its strength is critical. All of Hazard 4’s are sewn on with zig-zag-like stitch-blocks called bar-tacking. These will not unwind like straight-line stitching.
High wear-and-tear areas on bags deserve to be protected more. So Hazard 4 not only use polymer panels on bag-bottoms, but also anywhere else that may get scratched and scuffed.
Cutting out a space and sewing in a Velcro panel or webbing from behind reduces weight, and the insert won’t fray or easily peel out with use.
Embroidered tags can get dirty & fray over time. Hazard 4’s main external tags are washable 3-D rubber.
Critical joints sewn without reinforcement or with a weak stitch-line can fail. Hazard 4 use boxtacks that can be quality-checked and last long.
Once a buckle or D-ring etc. fails it can make the bag it serves virtually unusable and hard to repair. Hazard 4 use only the best hardware brands. A zipper blow-out is frequently the most serious failure a bag can suffer. YKK® is known the world over as the only zipper brand to trust.
While Hazard 4 provides many pockets on bags/packs, large areas of modular Mollé arrays are left for you to customise with your chosen pouches.
A tactical look is cool, but sometimes pros need to blend in. Many of Hazard 4 products are stealthy designs and can present themselves as unassuming civilian gear. We also use minimal tags - an ideal look for uniformed carry.
