Comp-Tac Releases New Hybrid Appendix Holster: eV2 Max

Friday, September 13th, 2019

HOUSTON, Sept. 12, 2019 – Comp-Tac®, manufacturer of concealed carry, competition holsters and accessories, recently released a new appendix inside-the-waistband, hybrid holster.


The eV2™ Max combines the highest quality materials and design features to provide a holster that is comfortable to carry and easy to hide. The two-layer leather backing provides a comfortable barrier between the firearm and the body during IWB wear. The aircraft-grade Kydex® shell provides superior fit for a smooth, fast draw and maintains its shape for easier and safer reholstering. The largest part of the eV2™ Max’s success is in the Comp-Tac® Kick, a polymer piece added to help situate the firearm in a way to hide the grip by pushing it toward the body for a sleek and slim profile.

“Comp-Tac® has always been known for their commitment to creating functional, comfortable and high-quality concealed carry holsters and equipment,” said Randi Rogers, director of brand management and 70 time world and national shooting champion. “The eV2™ Max is the next iteration in a long line of holsters purpose built and rigorously tested. Appendix carry continues to grow in popularity with all the new compact and subcompact firearms available on the market. We strive to provide the gear that our customers want and need, and the eV2 Max™ is another step in doing just that.”

The eV2™ Max
• Kydex® shell enables easy reholster
• Features two-ply leather backing for superior comfort
• Interchangeable Kydex® shells allow for carry of multiple guns with one holster
• Ride-height-adjustable clip maximizes master grip
• Comp-Tac® Kick keeps pistol grip tucked against body
• Retention screws allow for perfect holster retention adjustment
• Available in both right and left hand
• MSRP: $67.00

The Para model is hinged to stow out of the way, it is made of aluminum, so it won’t break off. Attached to Picatinny rails.

The Stubby Para Grip is 4.0″ L x 1.5″ W and weighs 6.56 oz.

HSGI Announces Giveaway Winner in “Battle of the Belts”

Thursday, September 12th, 2019

SWANSBORO, N.C., Sept. 9, 2019 – High Speed Gear®, maker of Battle-Proven Tactical Gear™, concluded its monthlong “Battle of the Belts” giveaway with its customers and dealers Sept. 6.

Participants voted on their favorite HSGI® and Comp-Tac® belts and features, resulting in more than 3,800 entrants, with one winner announced each week. Each winner received an Operator Belt, which was the winning belt all four weeks, with later weeks rewarding additional HSGI® and Comp-Tac® products.

“We were very excited by the turnout on our survey contest,” said Allison Mitchum, HSGI® director of sales and marketing. “We’ve received a lot of great input and insight, all of which can be used in continuing to make great gear our customers value and trust.”

Additionally, participants voted High Speed Gear’s® made in America status as their most important aspect/feature, followed by the gear’s function and usefulness, with the overbuilt design and durability ranking third.

The most popular belts in the survey were as follows, listed most popular first:


Operator Belt with Micro Grip and Velcro® Inner Belt

The Operator COBRA® IDR 1.75” Rigger Belt is a low-profile shooter’s belt designed to work with both MOLLE and belt-mounted gear. This two-belt system is overbuilt, like all HSGI® gear, to outlast the competition.


Slim-Grip Padded Belt® – Slotted

This modular, padded-belt system is one of the slimmest and sturdiest on the market. A neoprene interior adds a level of grip unlike any other belt system on the market. Individual PALS platforms allow the inner belt to be woven inside or outside the belt making this a versatile easily quipped solution for all the gear you need.


COBRA® Rigger Belt – 1.75” D-Ring and 1.5” Variants

The belt is constructed to the same standards as our COBRA® 1.75” belt, but is designed for those who need a belt for daily wear around the office or out in the field. This belt’s excellent stiffness and rigidity will not allow the weight of holsters and mag pouches to “roll” the belt. This version of our battle-proven, tactical belt utilizes the COBRA® buckle on 1.5” webbing.


Duty-Grip™ Padded Belt

The Duty-Grip™ is designed with the patrol officer in mind and was fielded by numerous law enforcement officers and departments during the development process. Our proprietary neoprene padding creates a gel-like comfort while offering excellent grip and performance. The Duty-Grip™ features a complete series of vertical laser-cut slots that allow a rigger or duty belt to weave securely to expose any or nearly all of the belt for attaching belt-mounted pouches and holsters.


DSEI 19 – Blue Force Gear ULTRAcomp Belt

Thursday, September 12th, 2019

So new it doesn’t have a name yet, this new belt made from ULTRAcomp consists of an inner and outer belt. Blue Force Gear tells me it is half the weight of competitor belts.

The outer belt has a break strength of 4000 lbs and features a Cobra buckle as well as two sewn-in front and rear retention loops. It also incorporates three high PALS slots.

The inner and outer belts connect via Velcro. The inner belt is low profile and can be turned inside out of you want to wear it as your only belt.

Team Wendy Successfully Overcomes Opposition to Its European CAM FIT Retention System Patent

Thursday, September 12th, 2019

Yesterday in the Hague Netherlands, the European Patent Office (EPO) once again confirmed that Cleveland-based Team Wendy’s European patent directed to its CAM FIT™ Retention System was valid and entitled to a priority date of at least October 2012. The opposition to Team Wendy’s patent was filed by ABG Intellectual Property Law, S.L. against Team Wendy’s sister company that owns the European Patent, Intellectual Property Holdings, LLC (IPH). Although the identity of ABG’s client was not disclosed during the opposition, evidence submitted by ABG directly pointed to FECSA SL, a Spanish company that has been attacking Team Wendy’s CAM FIT™ Retention System IP for more than two years. The EPO found ABG’s opposition unsuccessful on all grounds and Team Wendy’s patent – European Patent No. 2874512 titled “Helmet Retention System” – shall be maintained as granted.


Team Wendy CEO Jose Rizo-Patron said that Team Wendy invests heavily in unique, innovative products and systems designs and will continue to aggressively defend its intellectual property. “We are very pleased with the ruling coming out of the EPO. It is regrettable that this particular company chose a path forward that the EPO has declared a dead-end in lieu of investing in their own design and development. Our IP is firmly grounded and this attempt to have it invalidated was rejected out of hand by the EPO,” he said. “The CAM FIT™ Retention System has been tremendously successful and remains the gold standard for tactical helmet systems worldwide.”


Team Wendy was represented in the opposition by Dr. Matthew Barton of Forresters in Munich, Germany and Mark W. McDougall of Calfee, Halter & Griswold LLP in Cleveland, Ohio.
