The world’s toughest utility pouches are now available in black. What color will be next?

RE Factor Tactical – Drive-by Kit

Monday, April 18th, 2016

I haven’t run across a pouch like one of these in awhile. The idea behind the Drive-by Kit is that it can be attached to a headrest for ease of access or quickly detached and removed from the vehicle to treat wounded or load carriage for munitions or other equipment.

The Drive-by Kit can carry two AR style magazines on the exterior of the pouch, while the interior contains multiple bungee retention straps.

Built from 1000D Cordura, works with any vehicle headrest due to Velcro attachment system yet offers PALS compatibility as well. There’s even a simple clip if that’s the fastest way to attach it to your kit while you “get off the X”.

Made in the USA and available in Black, Tan and MultiCam.

Marine South – Darley Offers HSP D3CR Rig and Mission Spec Rigit

Monday, April 11th, 2016

Darley Defense is a contract holder for the Defense Logistics Agency’s Special Operations Tailored Logistics Program. TLS offers government organizations, including military units, to purchase commercial Organizational Clothing and Individual Equipment via interagency funding transfer mechanisms. The various companies on TLS are under contract to DLA and the customer buys the items from DLA. As far as the unit is concerned, they are buying from the supply system but getting the latest and greatest from industry.

One of the items I noticed Darley had available was the Disruptive Environments Chest Rig from Haley Strategic Partners. This rig was designed for HSP by Darin Talbot aka Eggroll, and is quite popular. It’s adaptive to different loads and is Berry compliant. The D3CR can be worn via its H-harness or, using SwiftClips attached directly to an armor vest.

The D3CR will accept AR type magazines as well as AK 7.62 x39mm and 5.45 x 39 magazines. The Multi-Mission Pouches accept 1911, Glock, Sig, M&P, XD and other standard double or single stack pistol magazines, as well as many handheld lights and multi-tools.  There are also two flapped GP pouches in either side but something you won’t see on any other chest rigs out there is the STUFFIT pouch which accepts a wide variety of odd-sized loads.

They’ve paired it with the Rigit from Mission Spec, a PALS adapter for armor carriers which offers SwiftClip QD mount points for rigs like the D3CR and others such as those offered by Mayflower.

This video gives you an idea of how the Rigit works.

While I know units have ordered a lot of different items over the years, this one hadn’t crossed my mind as something a unit might purchase via TLS. It serves as a great example and just goes to show how responsive TLS to the needs of its customers.

Velocity Systems Announces New NSN for the Modified Operators Utility Belt

Wednesday, April 6th, 2016


In conjunction with the Australian based military and tactical distributor Southern Cross Equipment PTY LTD, Velocity Systems has developed a modified version of the Operators Utility Belt for the Australian Defence Forces that enables the belt to be worn with suspenders.

The Operators Utility Belt (OUB) was designed with a “less is more” approach. The OUB is narrower than other belts allowing for greater operator mobility while maintaining ample real estate to mount additional pouches and equipment. Its skeletonized insert ensures passive cooling and allows the belt to be at least 25% lighter than other comparable belts. The OUB can be worn with your existing riggers belt or the Velocity Systems “Enhance Variable Riggers Belt”.

Velocity Systems is excited to announce that the modified Operators Utility Belt has been given an official National Stock Number (NSN). The 13-digit NSN code is used to standardize and monitor a product allowing the United States Government, federal and civil agencies, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and many governments around the world to purchase the product directly from the company. NSNs allow the above mentioned groups to expedite the purchase of needed items and insure a standard for reordered items.

Southern Cross is the exclusive distributor of Velocity Systems Products in Australia, to contact them directly email, Additional information can be found at, To learn more about Velocity Systems and their products please visit To contact us directly please email All Velocity Systems Products are made in the USA and are Berry Amendment Compliant.
