You talked, we listened. We set out to create the perfect cover shirt for shooters, by shooters. We started by creating a general design from the feedback of current special operations personnel that we sold at a steep discounted rate in order to get it in the hands of reviewers. We then sent out feedback forms and had those who had a chance to wear the shirt provide what they did or didn’t like about the shirt. From that feedback we created our version 2.0 and a design that we believe is truly designed for you.

The Jedburgh Cover Shirt is the ideal shirt for anyone carrying a concealed firearm during plain clothes operations or for simple every day carry. Designed to have a non-tactical appearance, this athletic form-fitting shirt easily blends in with your environment, without presenting yourself as armed. Built with lightweight, air-wicking stretch fabric, you can easily maneuver, draw, and present your weapon when needed. Special pearl button snaps and reinforced lining allow you to quickly open and clear your shirt when drawing, while minimizing your weapon profile when concealed. Three hidden pockets lined within inside of the shirt let you carry sensitive items, such as CAC cards, ID’s and money separately from your wallet.

-Athletic fit w/ air-wicking material
stretch fabric for maneuverability
-Quick-release plastic button snaps
Passport/ID sized breast pocket w/ button
-Three hidden interior pockets
-Reinforced lining for easy draws and reduced weapon “printing”
-Stretch fabric offers the ability to present the pistol with or without concealed body armor

Readyman – EDC Belt Sleeve

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

Readyman’s EDC Sleeve is one of things you see and say, “why didn’t I think of that?”.

Not everyone runs around with a fully kitted plate carrier or warbelt on. Instead, we deal with day-to-day issues with whatever we have on hand. For many, this means their Every Day Carry includes more items than the average person, often in specialized gear. On the othr hand, the EDC Belt Sleeve allows you to add commonly needed gear to your trouser belt with ease. Additionally, the items sit close and parallel to the belt, resulting in a low profile. Finally, it’s stretchy, so it will hold most items secure, despite not having a flap.

Introducing the B•A•T TRIDENT: A Wildly Unique New Multitool LIVE On Kickstarter

Saturday, November 4th, 2017

Covert Products Group’s “Bring Anywhere Tool” has 12+ Functions in a Compact Size

Trident

NEW HAVEN, Connecticut – November 2, 2017 – In a market flooded with multitools and pocket gizmos, standing out from the crowd is no easy feat, especially on Kickstarter. With a unique shape and carry options, Covert Products Group’s new B.A.T. TRIDENT multitool moves the conversation of EDC tools in a totally new direction.

Inspired by the familiar silhouette of side-release buckles (as found on backpacks and bags), the B.A.T. TRIDENT expands on CPG’s “bring anywhere tool” concept that debuted on Kickstarter last year. The TRIDENT – which launched this week on Kickstarter – is engineered to contain 12+ useful functions in a compact, ergonomic and highly “carry-able” package. From daily utility to survival, the TRIDENT is designed to be carried (almost) anywhere, excel at a variety of tasks, and look good doing it.

“The perfect tool isn’t so perfect if you don’t have it with you,” explains the TRIDENT’s designer Thom O’Leary. “The TRIDENT is big enough to be useful, but small enough to carry just about anywhere, either visibly or covertly. Slip it onto a backpack strap, belt, keychain, or carry it in your pocket.”

The TRIDENT functions include:

· Phillips head screwdriver

· Razor edge

· Sharp piercing point

· Captured cutter

· Flat head screwdriver/pry tip

· Wire stripper

· Serrated fire rod scraper

· Saw edge

· Laser-etched 1” ruler

· Ergonomic bottle opener operated with the tool safely held in the sheath

· Fire starter rod (included) OR swap it out for an optional EmbriteTM glow pellet from TEC Accessories

· 3M SOLAS reflective sticker

· And the TRIDENT’s molded Kydex Sheath is designed to allow multiple attachment options for everyday carry

The TRIDENT is available now through December 1st on Kickstarter, with lowest prices available for early adopters. The TRIDENT will ship during or before March 2018.
