Yesterday, I drove to the Velocity Systems factory to pick up samples of the new Range Shorts and the MultiCam BOSS Rugby. While we were there, I also happened to purchase the Tan BOSS and Range Shorts for one of my kids.
Due to popular demand, we took a photo for a color comparison between the Earth Tan BOSS Rugby and Tan Range Shorts. As you can see, the BOSS Rugby is closer to the Sand color for current issue Army T-shirts, while the range shorts are closer to a traditional Khaki. This Tan turned out great and I really like the color.
The BOSS Rugby has long been my go-to range shirt and these new shorts are awesome. I had a pair of an earlier version and they’ve really dialed the design in. Designed with a customer from the ground up for range use, the pocket configuration is well laid out.
Partnering with camouflage supplier Kryptek, SJK Hunting is creating and designing hunt-specific packs, blinds and treestand cloaks
BOULDER, COLO. (For Immediate Release) – Big game hunters are raving about the new SJK packs! Slumberjack, now referred to as SJK, has sighted in on the hunting market and is continuing to emerge as a durable, quality driven hunting pack brand. Relaunched in the spring of 2014, they now offer a complete line of Kryptek camouflage patterned packs and tree stand bags specifically designed to give hunters an edge on any hunt.
The fall 2015 SJK hunting line introduces a new light weight blind, a new Kryptek Mandrake camo, and updates to the Thermal Cloak. These new hunting products combine lightweight materials, durable construction, cutting edge Kryptek camouflage, and an extensive amount of input from our professional hunting partners, to create the most advanced hunting equipment available.
“Following the successful launch of our tactical hunting line, we are developing and introducing a greater range of new products to fit the emerging tactical hunter,” said Russell Rowell VP of SJK Hunting. “The hunting community is rapidly evolving and SJK will continue to develop innovative, cutting edge hunting equipment to meet and lead this trend.”
The SJK Hunting line now includes 9 packs, ranging in size from the Bounty 4500, a fully-featured mountain hunting pack to the Spoor and Strider which are designed for everyday use. The all new Strider ($129) is a 26-liter pack featuring four exterior pockets which allow you to organize for a day at the treestand or for your day to day activities. The pack also features a new compression carry system, which allows users to carry items in many different configurations, and a built-in rifle shooting platform to help stabilize the shot. The pack line will now be available in Kryptek Mandrake camo, to appeal to the hunters in various vegetation’s and seasons.
This year we are introducing the new patented SJK Arctic Cloak, a warmer version of the popular Thermal Cloak tree stand bag, in Kryptek Highlander ($259) and in Blaze Orange. The cloak guarantees all-day warmth and comfort for those cold, wet, stoic hours on the hunt. The tactical hood’s wide peripheral shape allows for better viewing and hearing so you can see and hear approaching game. Quiet, weather-ready fabrics repel wind, rain, and snow while 300g of synthetic insulation keeps you warm all day. The foot of the bag is long enough to cover boots yet open, allowing you to feel the edges of your tree stand to ensure proper footing. Large, self-sealing (via magnets) arm ports allow you to silently move into bow or rifle shooting position.
Bawidamann Blades sent along a Pogn L with a Bronze finish and the Black G10 VZ Grips. It came with the brand-new Uber Scabbard, which as a special bonus was outfitted with one of the limited titanium Archangel Michael Titanium pendants which were made up by Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical.
The Uber Scabbard is a fusion of the Uber Sheath with the current and past scabbards offered by Bawidamann. It features 10+ ambidextous carry positions, adjustable retention, screws and postnuts for complete disassembly, and it’s PUP and MINI PUP compatible.
Southern Pines, NC (December, 30 2014) – Made in the USA brand, XGO®, will be adding a new FR Hybrid shirt to their 2015 Flame Retardant collection. This shirt combines the XGO® FR Phase 1 material with Flame Retardant Mesh panels in order to increase breathability, comfort, and stretch.
“Since our Flame Retardant Mesh debuted in 2012, we have had requests from various military branches to combine our two bestselling FR fabrics in order to create a shirt that provides a more breathable FR alternative with the same level of protection, “said Sherry Lyons, XGO® Director of Global Sales.
All XGO® Flame Retardant products, including the new Hybrid, are moisture-wicking and contain an AG-47 silver anti-microbial to help control odor causing bacteria. It will be available for Spring 2015 in Desert Sand through select retailers and online at proxgo.com. MSRP $60.00.

Apex, NC, December 30, 2014 – Arisaka LLC is pleased to announce the release of its new 300 Series Light Body.
The 300 Series Light Body is designed as a streamlined replacement for Surefire ScoutLight M300 bodies. It is manufactured without the mounting interface for the stock Picatinny clamp. This greatly increases the clearance for front sights when used in combination with the KeyMod and M-Lok Arisaka Inline Scout Mounts on handguards with 45 degree mounting surfaces adjacent to the top Picatinny rail, such as the BCM KMR, KAC URX4, and Geissele SMR MK8.
The 300 Series Light Body is compatible with all E1 series and Scout Light M300 series tailcaps and heads. It will also fit in any aftermarket Scout mount, as it retains the mounting holes and square lug interface on the underside of the light body.
It is also possible to build a complete light from scratch by sourcing a Surefire or aftermarket light head, and a tailcap or tape-switch.
The 300 Series Light Body is manufactured out of 6061 aluminum, type III hardcoat anodized, and made entirely in the USA.
