Welcome to Olongapo Outfitters!
If you are looking for high quality shooting gear, you are in the right place!
To help speed up production and get all of the various styles of gear back in stock, I've made the following decisions:
1) I'll no longer be offering snaps on any gear. All gear will only be available with Velcro. (This applies to Garand Cartridge Belts and Garand Belt Pouches.) I have to set each snap by hand and it is time consuming. It takes twice as long to make any piece of gear with snaps than it does with Velcro, and gear with Velcro out-sells snaps anyway.
2) I'll only be making gear in Coyote Brown, Coyote Tan/Khaki, OD Green, and Multicam. I won't be making any gear in Black or Woodland Marpat for a long while. Coyote Brown is the best seller, followed by OD Green, then Khaki and Multicam. There is a huge drop-off in sales after that to Black and Woodland Marpat, so it makes sense for me to allocate my time to the those colors that the majority of people want.
Doing these two things will help me get all of the different styles in stock faster, and get the gear in stock with the colors that the majority of people are looking for.
I've started making 7.62 Grab and Gos. If you've requested to be notified when they're in stock, I'll send you an email when they're done.
Then I'll make 9mm Grab and Gos in Coyote Brown and OD Green.
After that I'll refill the Garand Stock Pouches.
Then the AR Grab and Gos.
Then the Garand Grab and Gos.
Then I'll do the Garand Belt Pouches. After that, the Garand Cartridge Belts.
This entire process is going to take months. I'm a one-man operation. I'm not going to cut any corners in quality to try to make gear faster.
If you want to be notified when something will be in stock, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let me know the color and the style you're looking for (i.e. "Coyote Brown Garand Grab and Go" or "OD 7.62 Grab and Go"), and I'll email you when those are back in stock.
Thanks for your support!
I am changing the waist belt option on all Grab and Gos from a 1" wide waist belt to a 2" wide waist belt. It will be fully detachable, just like the 1" waist belt was. It will be more comfortable to wear over long time periods. (The 2" waist belt option will be $13.85.)

I use 1000 Denier Cordura, which is half the weight but has three times the abrasion resistance of old cotton canvas duck. Cordura also dries much faster.
I use 1", 2" and 3" 17337 and 43668 nylon webbing. 1" webbing has a breaking strength of 1100 pounds; 2" has a breaking strength of 2200 pounds; and 3" has a breaking strength of 3300 pounds.
I use #69 (Size E) and #92 (Size F) nylon bonded thread. Nylon bonded thread has three (or four) individual threads that have been wound together for extra strength, just as steel cable is stronger and more flexible than a solid steel wire.
I use mil-spec grommets and mil-spec Velcro, as well as ITW/Nexus/Fastex hardware and mil-spec shock cord (elastic cord). I use Lift-The-Dot snaps made by the DOT Company (Scovill). I cut all of the materials (except the Velcro) with a hot-knife to seal the edges so they won't fray--even edges of fabric and webbing that will never be seen--just to make the gear that much more durable.
All of the materials I use are Made in the USA, and the gear is Made in the USA (by me)!
Satisfaction guaranteed! My gear should last you for as long as you live; but if you're not happy with it, let me know and I'll make it right!
The photo above shows the different colors together, so you can see the differences.
Top left: Coyote Tan/Khaki; top right: OD Green; bottom left: Multicam; bottom right: Coyote Brown.
Coyote Tan/Khaki: Coyote Tan is not "tan" at all. It's a light olive-green, like WWII Khaki. The Garand Belt Pouch pictured above is made out of Coyote Tan fabric. This is also a very good neutral color for camouflage.
OD Green: The color used by the military from the middle of World War II up until recently.
Multicam: A new camouflage scheme created by Crye Precision. It works in just about every environment except snow. To see photos of how it works in many different environments, visit the Multicam website's Gallery.
Black: Basic black, used by LEOs and civilians.
MARPAT: MARPAT Digital Woodland. This is a commercially-made copy of the Marine Corps fabric. 1000d Cordura.
When you buy gear from Olongapo Outfitters, you're getting gear that will last--whether you use it at the range or out in the field under the harshest conditions.

I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and a constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold.
