Filed under: Products

Seco Gear Logo

Digital camouflage and public safety bags and cases can now be purchased through Steve Lieber & Associates Inc.

Digital camo products range from garment and duffel bags to parachute and medical backpacks. The digital pattern provides better cover than traditional camouflage. This is due to the way it mimics patterns and borders found in nature.

This is great for high visibility and recognition in high traffic/stress situations. High quality equipment bags are required for rough and continued use in all types of conditions.
