With the touring family in mind I set out to design the most essential touring equipment that could be fitted to a ute.
After having several different setups over the years while travelling with my young family I knew exactly what we needed but I couldn’t find something that ticked all the boxes.
We needed something that was versatile and not only could safely go to the most remote places in Australia with the family but also be used to throw a swag, quad and a riffle on the back and head out for a couple days with the boys.
September 2016, after returning from a trip to the Cape York with the family I started designing. Little did I realise that I was working on the first “Tactical Series V1” design for ARMED Equipment. The 3D design was modelled in a state of the art drafting package ensuring the perfect fit of all components. During the design process, a couple close of mates helped come up with additional ideas and had to have a tray each too.
By December 2016 we had a design which we were happy to move forward with, through December 2016 and January 2017 Armed Equipment completed 3 trays.
