Raine Inc. is proud to be associated with Craig “Sawman” Sawyer’s success with Animal Planet’s ‘Rhino Wars’. While Craig is performing the vital function of team leader of his detail, he is also doing something greater than himself; protecting something in nature that cannot protect itself against a very real threat to its existence.

“Raine is happy to play its part for Craig and his team, outfitting them with their armor system and load carry equipment. In order for Craig and his team to perform its vital function, they also require as much protection as they can afford themselves. This includes body armor, weapons, and the means to stop any threat posed. Raine is excited to be part of this and would like to wish Craig and his team great success as they continue to do great things in Africa,” said Will Romes, Marketing & Development Manager.

Raine announced in the Fall of 2012 the addition of Former Navy SEAL Craig “Sawman” Sawyer to their team where he’ll assist with product development. To learn more about Sawyer and Raine, go to

Who Uses Maps Anymore?

Times have changed over the years. Believe it or not, soldiers actually used paper maps in the field. Raine Inc. produced (and still does) the finest map cases in the world. They varied in different sizes and shapes to fit the mission. The Individual map case is the smallest 7”x9”. The Squad map case has a larger 15”x14” viewing area and can be folded neatly in a zippered binder that fits the BDU Cargo pocket. The Rolled map case has a much larger 16”x44” viewing area. The Jumbo case speaks for itself. Of course Raine produces the Map Bag that dates back to the 18th century.

Maps are being replaced by GPS devices. Raine has been on the forefront of creating innovative GPS cases for the field. Information cases (i.e. IPad, Iphone, smart phones, I-whatever) are the wave of the modern Army and Raine is on it. Please click here to find out more info. in our Product Catalog about  Map Cases, GPS cases and Smart Phone Cases. 

Keep in mind, when batteries run out, paper always works.  And, we would love to hear about your map stories.

Where on the Map is Raine Inc?

Raine Inc. is located in Anderson, Indiana.  Anderson is a small city located 25 miles northeast of Indianapolis. From the early 1900’s to the 1990’s, Anderson hosted Delco Remy, GM and Guide Lamp (later Fisher Guide) who were the top employers in the city. All have now moved out of Anderson and took with them the 30000+ high paying blue collar jobs they employed.  Needless to say, the city is trying to rebound while hurting economically and needing to diversify its’ business base.

Raine Inc. is proud to be part of the Anderson, Indiana economic rebound. We moved to Anderson in 1994 to occupy a 4000 sq. foot building on five acres of land with city utilities. This situation is ideal for expansion.  The first 9000 sq.ft. expansion took place in 1996 and the second 9000 sq.ft. expansion took place in 2002. The building is constructed so the back wall can be removed and built onto.  Needless to say, Raine has plenty of flexibility for growth and plans on staying in Anderson for the long haul.

Raine’s Product Philosophy: Built for Use

Twenty-four years ago when I was looking at businesses to buy, I wanted get into something that added a high level of value to a product that was of tremendous quality. It was very important to me to have a customer be happy with a Raine product long after the purchase. This goal is more challenging in the military market since gear is subjected to very tough field conditions on a daily basis. 

Deluxe Rigger Sheath MOLLE ACU
; Model: 0005MAC

To achieve this goal, every Raine product has a simple, common sense design, is built to last and is not over or under engineered. Every product is inspected, not only at a certain percentage. We have learned over the years where stitching must be reinforced for maximum wear – absolutely no products are built in obsolescence.  Finally, each product is built with the proper material to withstand tough field conditions and to minimize its weight. 

In the end, you will find that Raine products are tough but very affordable. That is the main reason we have been around for over 24 years.
