This special limited edition Black version of the Khard 30 Pack is only available at Tactical Distributors.  It debuted at Warrior East 2016.  It is a highly sought after and only a small amount were produced.  Richard King, the very talented professional tactical photographer, has captured the discreteness of the Black Khard in an urban setting.  He is known for creating and capturing interesting and gritty scenarios sometimes mixing real life situations and surreal themes to provoke emotions.  The shoot featured here is a realistic setting with an artistic eye by creating sharp contrasts against a concrete back drop.  Some of the bags pictured have a custom embroidery for a the Tomahawk Defense unit.  They are basically a blank black canvas waiting for you to customize...or not, depending on your needs.
