Once you see what Crye has on hand as well as their Six12 project, some will just throw their hands up in defeat and wonder why they even bothered to show up. But most will accept the challenge and up their game.
Crye Precision has delved into new areas and continues to remain out on the cutting edge.
First off are the new patterns. On the left you have Arid pattern and on the right Tropical.
Next up, three new jackets for Spring.
They’ve redesigned the fit lock on the fieldshell.
The loft jacket is an insulated softshell with stretchy side panels and thumb hole cuffs. It also features a stowable, low-profile hood.
The lightweight fleece jacket is the first use of this new printed softshells with fleece interior.
The LEO1 Pant was created to offer a low-cost alternative to the combat pant for law enforcement. While the stretch panels are not on this pant, the fit block is said to be well suited to mobility. The LEO offers the Crye knee pad and the front and side cargo pockets are integrated into a single piece to lower cost.
Hitcoat is a two component system designed for LE that incorporates a vest and a sleeves. You may note that the vest offers an offset zippered, front closure.
The sleeve component is a single, integrated unit that offers armor and shoulder and elbow protection.
Sizing will be similar to the combat shirt.
This is a real gem. Crye Precision looked at the Operator’s load and designed a suite of pouches that can be used for several different purposes.
For attachments, each pouch has a sleeve for use with AVS that will also accommodate a 2″ belt as well as PALS compatibility.
More on these soon.
They updated the yoke for the Adaptive Vest System.
Fieldsuit and Combatsuit
The Fieldsuit and Combat suit were designed for airborne operations,
They found that by offsetting the front zipper, they could keep the suit from riding up.
The Airframe ATX is an aramid option for the helmet.
And now what you’ve all been waiting for…Six12
Six12 is a modular, compact shotgun system that utilizes a rotary magazine ala a revolver.
Designed as an answer for the breacher, the patent pending system can be used standalone or attached to a carbine. As it is, the bull pup design a perfectly legal length. However, there is a short barreled NFA variant available for use with SBRs.
The compact design gives the breacher additional breaching rounds in a package that is integrated into his carbine, increasing both lethality and survivability.
Here, you can see the removable magazine.
Look for it by Christmas.
