At The Front – WWII Camo Wallet

Monday, April 17th, 2017

At The Front offers vinatge and reproduction WWII clothing and equipment. One of their most recent projects was manufacturing WWII US military camouflage herringbone twill cloth. They are now offering these wallets in that pattern.

It’s a Men’s bifold wallet made using their reproduction materials. The body and main pockets are made from exact reproduction WWII US military camouflage herringbone twill cloth, reinforced with .75″ US military spec cotton binding tape in the WWII olive drab number 3 shade. Inside are two credit card/ ID pockets made from OD3 webbing.

Although the fabric itself is reversible, they offer a choice of Spring or Fall colors for the outer side of the wallet. (There was no way to make the wallets reversible.)

Assembled in USA with imported and American materials.

MD-Textil – Night Desert Camo Pouches

Monday, April 17th, 2017

While these are a one-offs, intended to show German brand MD-Textil’s laser cutting capabilities, it’s still cool to see pouches made in this US, 1970s-era Night Desert Camouflage pattern, designed to defeat night vision systems.

The Cat’s Out Of The Bag On The Kryptek Plate Carrier

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

At the recent Enforce Tac show in Nürnberg, Germany, I had the opportunity to check out Kryptek’s new tactical line of clothing and equipment which was on display in Precision Tecnhnic Defense’s stand. One of the items is a new lightweight plate carrier which joins the line of PALS compatible pouches they released earlier this year. As it was a prototype, they were not yet ready for me to share it with the world. However, German blog Strategie Technik shared a photo of the carrier.

It is extremely lightweight with integrated Admin Pouch at the upper chest along with three magazine pouches.  However, they mentioned that the integrated Admin Pouch would be removed to make way for PALS compatibility in that space. You may also spy Tubes connectors on this carrier which have been licensed from FirstSpear.  You’ll also notice a radio pouch attached to the cummerbund. My favorite feature is the rigid opening on the ammo pouches which make it much easier to replace magazines one-handed.
