I think that they went under. 

IIRC, Lib 45 knows them.

Well shit. Sorry for Brian.

There was something posted about this awhile back. He may be just doing custom stuff now. I got some nice pouches from them a long time ago.

Maybe Lib will post up soon about them.

Last I saw Brian was at our mutual friend Jack's funeral June 2018.  He was a little cagey about his situation and used words like 'betrayal' and 'lawsuit'.  He is very private about his personal and business affairs.  I wouldn't want to speculate about what happens but he's been out of the business for 4 years at least.  It was Brian who convinced me to check out LF.

ETA:

It was a bit chilly so I had my 20 + yr old Drop[ Zone Squeeze Me liner on while writing the above....didn't even occur to me at the time...

The wife and I have the smocks we got back in 04. Mine went with me to Baghdad since they didn’t have desert flight jackets or gortexs at my unit. The wife’s was a one off in grey.  They look the same as they did. When I pulled them out of the box they came in

Gah... that sucks.  Why does it always have to be some shit like that?

That sucks. DropZone had a great product.

I had a Motha Rucka pack.  Gigantic.  It was in Multicam but was covered in solid green pals so much you couldn't see it.  Built well though.

Yep. I’ve heard nothing but the same. His smocks were apparently great but gear-wise not so much. Comments on this side of the border were to the effect of PALS webbing were consistently out of spec....or they had their own spec of PALS that made it incompatible with any other companies product....

He purposely made the PALS out of spec so he wouldn’t get sued. By whom I’m still trying to figure out. 

 

We used to show him items that people wanted, but openly refused because his ideas were better etc.

That sounds pretty familiar. I didn’t know about the “not wanting to get sued excuse” about making his own PALS. Says a lot.
