FirstSpear Friday Focus – Beat Up Plate Carrier

Friday, March 20th, 2015

This week we feature a FirstSpear original. The Beat Up is a plate carrier that was one of the first armor platforms produced when the company launched. A government agency overrun has allowed them to close out a limited stock of Medium and Large SAPI cut Beat Ups (Ranger Green only).


This is a great opportunity to grab a full featured carrier or replace an old one at a very low cost. These are not seconds and are fresh off the floor and still come with the FirstSpear lifetime warranty in materials and craftsmanship.

With a name borrowed from the lexicon of the elite Long Range Desert Group (LRDG) of World War II, a “Beat Up” was considered to be a raid, ambush or direct action of the type that group favored and this PC is developed for just that sort of operation. The Beat Up is lightweight and integrated with all appropriate functions that reflect input from Professional Users, the experience of the FirstSpear Design Team and the very best in modern materials technology.

The Beat Up features full comfort padding and ventilation on the front and back body just like the Strandhögg. Includes full cummerbund that accepts 6×6 side plates, Drag handle, fully adjustable shoulder straps, and FirstSpear design and quality craftsmanship you can trust. Fits Hard Armor plates cut to SAPI in the corresponding size, ie. Medium Plate fits a Medium Plate Carrier.


The Beat Up retails at $349.98 now available while supplies last for $149.99 AND they are offering Free Domestic Ground Shipping (APO/FPO/DPO) with purchase of the Beat Up (Ranger Green only).

Tactical Tailor Rolls Out New And Improved MALICE Clips

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015

Tactical Tailor has announced the release of an updated MALICE Clip which coincides with the new Fight Light line. The new MALICE clips are lighter, stronger, easier to weave, and have a slimmer standoff. The full release can be read below:


When we rolled out the new Fight Light line here at Tactical Tailor we concentrated our efforts on being lighter and slicker while maintaining the phenomenal durability that we’re known for.

Every aspect was scrutinized, and we deliberately studied and considered feedback from professional end-users. We removed extraneous weight and maximized utility wherever we could. Part of this process was reviewing some things that we’ve done the same way for more than a decade. We put pen to paper, constructed countless prototypes, and put them through rigorous testing for months before anything was rolled out.


If you’ve purchased any of the Tactical Tailor Fight Light line recently, you may have observed something: We changed the MALICE Clip.

Our MALICE Clip is the long-time, now ubiquitous industry standard: and the new MALICE Clip is even better. Everything you liked about the old MALICE is still present:

Same heavy duty construction. They won’t come unwoven even if accidentally unlocked. They work with a variety of attachment methods. They’re not affected by extreme temperature changes. They will never corrode.


Now, however, now they’re easier to weave due to the non-square edges, significantly lighter, 15% stronger, and have a slimmer standoff.

Pricing and lengths remain exactly the same. The new MALICE Clips are shipping with all Tactical Tailor Fight Light items, and soon will ship with everything we sell. Don’t worry OEMs, we’ll still provide you with the new MALICE Clips as well.

The new MALICE clips are shipping on new LBE and gear – watch for them to be available as a standalone purchase soon.
