Enforce Tac 19 – LMS Gear Flannel Shirt

Thursday, March 7th, 2019

LMS Gear is introducing a flannel shirt, to go along with Multi Utility Denim.

At the front you can see the asymmetric pockets with a regular flapped shirt pocket on the left side of the shirt and a small pocket with pen slot on the right. Interestingly, this pocket is accessible through the armpit of an armor vest. Additionally, midway down the front opening is a slot for sun glasses.

The shirt also features patched elbows for durability.

The sides of the hem feature a Cordura patch for durability, to avoid tearing when pulling the shirt for a draw from conceal.

At the left and right of the shirt, just behind the side seam are low-profile pockets which will accept a single 30 rd magazine.

USB Condoms

Tuesday, February 26th, 2019

Our friends at WNDSN Expedition Team have another tip for you.

On the topic of so-called USB condoms, USB thumb drive-sized devices that are designed to protect the user from malicious data traffic in and out of the device when hooking up to public or unknown USB charging outlets. They work by physically removing the ability to transfer data, and are thus quite safe in that regard. Something else that is interesting when dealing with unknown power sources, or sometimes with sketchy cables is charging speed, and actual throughput (which is often quite fragile, especially with high-powered cellphones), as well as remaining power in power banks. To combine the two functions, with the latter being surprisingly more often needed than the former, I got a USB power monitor, one from PortaPow, the other one from Drok, both of which are about the size of a thumb drive providing several measurements of electricity plus the ability to only allow power, and no data exchange. Don’t travel or commute without.

TacHacker – Clothing Mods by WNDSN XPD

Wednesday, February 13th, 2019

WNDSN XPD recently shared this TacHack on Instagram. They do some cool stuff so we thought it was worth a share. It’s written from their perspective.

In the spirit of the old Wndsn Tumblr how-tos and as an exercise in #HOBOTACTICAL gear mods, here is a simple enhancement to your typical field jacket:

Install a rectangle of velcro (the loop side) ON THE INSIDE of the jacket, above the inner chest pocket; I used a 4 x 6″ piece in the example.

Now you have a versatile PLATFORM for any piece of gear that comes with a VELCRO (hook) back; of course, you can just as well wear your morale patches in this COVERT way, but we can make it even more useful.

I enjoy my smuggler’s jacket from @edsmanifesto and the many pockets and storage options it offers, including the dump pouch. I have found that sometimes though, I’d like to have that pouch higher up, and even when loaded, hidden within the jacket. A piece of hook velcro installed on the back of a drawstring DUMP POUCH, and we can use the newly cretaed platform to attach the dump pouch high up and have its contents out of sight, within the jacket. Compare the pictures. ENJOY!

ALL SKILL NO LUCK California Combat Hoodie Available for Pre-order

Friday, October 12th, 2018

The long awaited California Combat Hoodie from All Skill No Luck and Gripstop will open for preordering on Friday, October 12th at 0800 Pacific time.

2F3614D2-DAD0-4358-B2C1-AA42550C35C3

These pullovers are the final result an on going collaboration, first spotted at SHOT show last January. “What initially started out as a sort of fun, one-off project just for the sake of doing it, quickly turned into a legitimate product because of the overwhelming interest and support we received.” Said Nate Murr, inventor of the Gripstop and other popular products manufactured throughout the industry. “When that many people surprised me, with such overwhelming enthusiasm for a modernized Baja hoodie…there was only one company I could think of that could pull this off with quality and style. I cold-called Aaron Russel at ASNL, and asked if he was interested. Aaron laughed and said that he was working on his own version, and that I had beat him to the punch! That wasn’t true, as Aaron had thought of a lot of the great concepts that we rolled into the final design.”

The collaboration started, but the hard part proved to be finding the proper material. There are only a handful of companies that produce the traditional fabric called “Jerga” Baja type garments are made from, and after months of extensively searching, All Skill No Luck located a manufacturer. The California Combat Hoodie is being made in Oceanside California, located just outside of Camp Pendleton. Between the Military and surf culture of SoCal, the team wanted to update the classic Baja hoodie for the 21st century and to appeal to all fans of the legacy design regardless of their walk of life. “Pockets are never a bad idea. Look, men generally don’t carry purses. Carrying a backpack everywhere is annoying. We have a limited amount of pocket space as it is, which is consumed even faster if you carry a gun, spare mags, light, TQ, etc. It doesn’t matter if you CCW or not, you have to carry your gear somehow. The more pockets, the better!” Nate Murr explains. “We wanted to give the garment flexibility for that, regardless of how you intend to wear it. It could be skating in the city, riding your motorcycle, hiking in the woods, trailing a suspect down a busy street, or laying justice down on a cold desert night 7,000 miles from here. It has the features to do it all, and carry it all securely.”

The Features:

-100% authentic, Traditional Jerga fabric and pattern.
-Handwarmer pocket.
-Velcro lined, securable Kangaroo pocket for a 3 cell M4 mag insert.
Pocket can also used to organize and hold other gear, such as a pistol, radio, medkit, etc. when used with other industry common hook-backed pouches.
-Small Anorak style pocket located high center of chest.
-Two sleeve pockets with easy to remove external loop velcro if not using IFF markers
-Generous cut hood for use over other headwear
-Internal loops to attach a concealed cummerbund for carrying heavier loads in the Kangaroo pouch.
-Designed by veterans, Made in America.
-Introductory price of $80.00

All Skill No Luck x Gripstop Collaboration – California Combat Hoodie

Remember, these are prototype photos. Hopefully, they’ll clean up a few tells and turn this into a true Grey Man garment.
