Covert Operations Gear – Low-Profile EDC Bag

Friday, November 25th, 2016

Covert Operations Gear (COG) Low-Profile EDC Bag is an ambidextrous modular carry system that includes two swappable velcro hook-backed EDC platforms/panels that can be mounted to the bag’s main body. The sling can be worn slung over either shoulder. Bartacked color-matching PALS webbing runs the length of the sling’s shoulder, allowing users to weave in comms wires, battery pack cables, etc. The sling also includes a double-flap pocket made from stitch-weave twill fabric that will accommodate most smart phones and tourniquets.

The bag’s main body has a flap with a hidden exterior zippered compartment. One cool feature of the the Low-Profile EDC bag are the two magnetic Fidlock buckles on the main body’s flap which snap together as soon as the two halves are in close proximity.

• The EDC Pocket Platform has several open-top compartments in various widths to accommodate small items such as pens, knives, flashlights, notepads, multi-tools, and medical/IFAK items. This pocket platform also has two (2) zippered compartments, the smaller of which includes an HK style sling snap hook for attaching keys and/or electronic key FOBs. The larger zipper compartment is lined with soft foam material and is designed to accommodate many popular tablets. An iPad mini will fit in the pocket and can be zipped closed; a full-size iPad will fit, however the zipper must remain open.

• The EDC Weapon Platform is velcro loop lined and is sized to accommodate a variety of handguns, from sub-compacts to full-sized handguns, with or without a weapon light. The EDC Weapon Platform is ambidextrous, with left and right-hand-zippered openings, allowing compartment access from either side, and is lined with velcro loop for the user to mount an appropriate velcro hook-backed holster. Proven Leather and Kydex holsters are generally compatible. The user may install a strip of adhesive backed velcro hook (not included) onto one side of the holster and affix the holster inside the weapon compartment. The Weapon Platform also features its own exterior-zippered pocket and a row of MOLLE to attach miscellaneous gear or a tourniquet.

Oxcart Update – Introducing The V2CS

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

We recently wrote about Oxcart’s V2 Jeans. Apparently, they’ve sold well.  So well, that sizes 32 and 34 are currently sold out.

Oxcart just sent us an update that they are introducing a new version of the V2’s that they’re calling V2cs (CS stands for color spectrum). It’s a finished garment that has been given a reactive dye bath which includes a silicone / enzyme treatment to give the pants a softer hand feel. The reactive dye baths also allow them to offer any color. The first color available will be Wolf Grey, but on a different quality stretch denim made by Cone Mills than the V2s. The V2CS are available in sizes 30, 36, 38, and 40.

Additionally, Oxcart gave us a sneak peek of something they’re working on. A SOF customer asked them to make a pair of V2s with a special pocket for a Phokus lowvis blowout kit. They ended up making two; one for him and one for a teammate.

This is a short text note from the tester (in Grey) to Oxcart (in Blue) about his experience.

FirstSpear Friday Focus – Approach

Friday, April 10th, 2015

This week we’ll direct our focus on the FirstSpear Approach, an attache-style shoulder bag designed based on userfeedback.

FS_approach_9733

The Approach will hold larger size laptops in a stable, stiffened compartment, a large internal zipper compartment segregates the interior further with two mesh zippered pockets for further organization.

A full length front zippered pocket is accessible just under the flap and two deep open top mesh water bottle pockets are on each side. Simple strap handles are on each end of the bag so that it is easy to pull around your body or out of overhead storage on the plane and a comfortable top center handle is available to you for when you want to go to “Samsonite” mode.

FS_Approach_InteriorGroup

For those of you who conceal carry and are tired of putting your sidearm in the bowels of some courier bag to never be seen again relax, FS has you covered because the Approach integrates with the Line 1 Belt to seamlessly hold your SSV holster in a ready position in the same place every time. A Tubes Stretch Strap can secure the bag around your body, be stashed under the flap for when you need it or stuffed in the bag. The whole surface area under the front flap also accepts the full range of FS Ragnar Pockets. About the only thing you won’t find on the Approach is MOLLE Webbing and “Tactical” colors. Look for further sizes and shapes of the Approach coming out this Spring. Patent Pending.

The Hypalon Concealment Wallet is a bi-fold design capable of holding 4-12+ cards, with a rear currency pocket.

Aside from being extremely durable, the Hypalon Concealment Wallet also has two discreetly hidden compartments along the currency pocket, designed to hold physical security tools. These compartments are located on concealed fold-out flaps which blend in with the seam lines from the front wallet interior, and are bisected with stitch lines, forming the individual compartments to store tools.
