We are proud to introduce the worlds first Interchangeable Harness System (I.H.S.). The NOMAD IHS will allow near limitless functionality and design combinations by allowing the user to choose a variety of harness frame and body options and combine them together to create a single functioning unit. You can purchase the frame and body combos, with the choice of a GT Cobra Buckle or Metal Cobra Buckle, or purchase just the frame and bodies and create your own combinations.
The combinations and separate body and frames come in Black, Coyote, Gray and Ranger Green, and in sizes Small and Medium/Large. You can find the NOMAD products here, including a video on why the NOMAD was created and how to swap out the bodies.Read more »

This past September, the State of Arizona tackled the issue of whether a dog sniff (odor) provides probable cause to search in light of the fact that the State of Arizona has legal medical marijuana. Surprisingly, one court of appeals decided “YES” and the other decided “NO”. This article will briefly explain the reasoning for each case.
