Raine Inc. began supplying field binders and notebooks to individual military base stores in the South and Midwest states.  This relationship began with the Army Air Force Exchange Service (“AAFES”) over 24 years ago.   Raine also supplies various contract military stores in the malls of the Main Exchanges.
Several test orders were made for the Walking Wallet, and the Alamo Region of AAFES awarded Raine a contract for Raine’s stationary product line to all the Army and Air bases in Texas and nearby states.  After that, the stationary line expanded globally.
Then in 1992, Raine started to supply AAFES pouches, sheaths, bags, holsters and other outdoor gear. Raines’ entire product line was eventually combined under the Tactical category where it can be found today on the Tactical Planogram in every United States Army and Air base worldwide.
