Blue Force Gear Helium Whisper Pouches Awarded NSNs

Blue Force Gear has just announced that several of their Helium Whisper pouches have been issued National Stock Numbers. This is a watershed event as it signifies an official adoption of a next generation of load carrying systems by DoD that will begin to replace legacy MOLLE systems. It also means that aside from the adoption of Helium Whisper by USSOCOM elements, other organizations will be able to leverage this lightweight technology to improve their load carriage systems. This is some very big news.

Here is their press release:

Blue Force Gear announced today that seven of their Helium Whisper backed pouches received National Stock Numbers (NSNs). These Patent pending Helium Whisper pouches fulfill an immediate SOCOM Load Carriage System Contract and can be purchased by government customers with access to DLA.

“We’re excited that our lightweight pouches have been chosen to receive NSNs,” said Ashley Burnsed, Blue Force Gear’s CEO. “Our goal is to improve the soldier’s safety and survivability. Having NSNs on these pouches makes it easier for units to procure the lightweight equipment they need to get their jobs done.”

The pouches that received NSNs utilize Blue Force Gear’s Patent pending Helium Whisper technology which reduces weight by up to 60 percent over the pouches previously carried by troops. The U.S. military has identified weight reduction of individual combat equipment as a top priority due to the tremendous impact that loads have on combat survivability and long term orthopedic health. Helium Whisper is combat proven with elite personnel and is available now as a solution for customers seeking better performance.
