Max Talk 44: British Infantry Belt Kit: Review JayJays Gen 4 Web Gear

Monday, November 11th, 2019

Max Velocity Tactical (MVT) has established a reputation on the leading edge of tactical live fire and force on force training. MVT is dedicated to developing and training tactical excellence at the individual and team level.

This is an instructional session on the applicability and use of the British Army belt kit (webbing), focusing specifically on a review of the JayJays Gen 4 web gear, in this case the commanders version. www.jayjaysbrecon.co.uk

Gen IV Commanders Description:

The Gen IV Commanders is a totally flexible belt kit system where the pouches are permanently fixed to the pad.

For 20 years JayJays has been the UK market leader in permanently fixed belt kit systems and since the first concept was designed our belt kit has been constantly developed. Subtle design changes and features over the years have made this the preferred belt kit of the British Soldier.
Fixed pouches allow us to cater for users with a small waist size. Due to clever design we are able to keep the same number of pouches required and sew them to different length pads, making the belt kit a perfect fit for the user.

The design of the Gen IV reduces bounce of the belt kit. When all the pouches are full they stabilise against each other making a solid form that does not bounce or rock. This combined with the spacer pad ensures an ergonomic comfortable fit.
The latest version of the Gen IV comprises of all polymer hardware making it rust resistant in jungle environments. The addition of the polymer hardware also reduces overall weight without compromising strength.
Spacetec spacer fabric is used for padding to allow it to be as breathable as possible but still very flexible so it hugs the body.

He served with British Special Operations Forces, both enlisted and as a commissioned officer; a graduate of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.

2nd Amendment 1791 LLC Acquires SNAGMAG

Thursday, October 24th, 2019

2nd Amendment 1791 LLC, manufacturer of multi-fit holsters and accessories that accommodate a wide range of firearms, announces the acquisition of SNAGMAG™. This acquisition expands on their diverse product line-up focused on providing customers high-quality accessories at an incredible value.

SNAGMAG™ was invented by a plain-clothes law enforcement officer who needed a better option for carrying a spare magazine. SNAGMAG™ was the perfect solution, as it kept the magazine from turning sideways in his pocket or getting tangled with the other items. The bingo moment occurred while at a shooting range. He looked down at his pocket and noticed his pocketknife, and he wondered if he could incorporate a knife clip with a magazine holster. After a year of tinkering and fine-tuning, the SNAGMAG™ was born! Once perfected and patented, the magazine holster delivered on all its promises of discreetly and comfortably concealing an additional magazine with immediate access and convenience. With that their tag line was born “There’s no such thing as extra ammo”.

“After reviewing and using the SNAGMAG™, it didn’t take long for us to realize that it was the perfect addition to our 1791 Tactical line of products. With its ease of use and great concealability it slots right into our line of high-quality Kydex tactical products,” says Ramiro Romani, CEO. The SNAGMAG™ is designed to be worn in your front, support-side pocket and is available in over 50 variations that accommodate the most popular magazines.

SNAGMAG

• Disguised as a Pocket Knife

• Doubles your Ammo

• Designed for a Quick Draw

• The Most Discreet Way to Carry an Extra Magazine

• Lightweight and Comfortable

HRT – RAC Plate Carrier

Saturday, October 19th, 2019

HRT, an Ohio based company, has just released a revolutionary RAC™ plate carrier system featuring the industry’s first highly modular MultiZip™ back panel system. Originally a tactical training- company, HRT saw the need for a rapid-reconfigurable gear carrying system.  Unable to find any industry solution, HRT decided to make their own. “We feel we have a natural advantage in the gear industry. Not only do we distribute our own products, each piece of HRT gear was conceived from true real-world experience, and fine-tuned through routine training exercises, furthermore, the RAC’s modular nature allows us to stay competitive and deliver innovative new accessories in an ever-changing industry.” The HRT RAC™ was vigorously tested by Law Enforcement and Military communities alike prior to its release.

The RAC™ plate carrier is based on HRT’s proven HRAC plate carrier, with the addition of the innovative MultiZip™ dual-zipper back panel attachment system.  Allowing weight saving by only using mission essential gear, the dual zipper design gives users the ability to quickly re-configure the top and bottom of the rear plate pocket independently of each other, while also accepting full-length panels for large items such as rain gear, helmets or breaching tools.

The RAC™ itself is light weight and fully adjustable with comfortable low-profile shoulder straps and optional cummerbunds. The RAC™ is also quality from the ground up: from the Teflon-coated genuine Cordura, to Velcro-branded hook and loop, using ITW buckles and YKK Zippers, just to name a few. Aside from what the customer can see, all HRT carriers feature reinforced stitching, heavy nylon-bonded threads, quality sewing, and proper bar tacking. All HRT products come with an industry-leading LIFETIME warranty.

Like the HRAC, the front of HRT’s RAC™ plate carrier accepts all HRT placards including the highly anticipated Maximus placard designed by Army Ranger hall-of-famer MSG (ret) Howard “Max” Mullen Jr. The RAC™ is also compatible with various other placards from leading industry gear designers, ensuring future expansion as our nation’s threats continue to shift.

Team Wendy Launches Radio Rig For Search And Rescue Community

Monday, October 14th, 2019

Chest rig fully compatible with MOLLE / PALS accessories
CLEVELAND, OH (Oct. 14, 2019) – Team Wendy® formally announced today the launch of its Radio Rig, the company’s first ever chest rig. The item is available for immediate purchase.

The chest harness is a first for the Cleveland-based company, a leading provider of exceptional head protection systems worn by thousands across military, law enforcement, search and rescue (SAR), and adventure communities.

“We strive to provide our clients with optimal solutions by identifying gaps and filling unmet needs in the market,” said Team Wendy CEO Jose Rizo-Patron. “Through our ongoing engagement with several domestic and international SAR communities, it was clear to us that they needed a comfortable, purpose-built communications rig that includes a better approach for cable management. Our Radio Rig also serves as a complimentary solution to our widely fielded EXFIL® SAR helmets.”

The skillfully crafted harness offers an abundance of compartmentalization without compromising mobility. It comes with an assortment of three pouch sizes (small, medium, large) to accommodate any size radio or GPS. It features a separate weather-resistant zippered accessory pouch to protect a cell phone or other electronic equipment from the elements.

PALS webbing on the front provides a modular attachment system for the included pouches, as well as any other MOLLE / PALS compatible holsters, bags, etc. Fidlock® magnetic buckles allow for the front section to fold forward providing access to the backside of the front panel, which features a clear touch-screen compatible pocket for electronic devices (phones or tablets), maps, notes, etc.

The front panel features an interior zipper pouch, including two pockets:

·         One pocket is dedicated to cable management with six separate pass throughs for cables to enter from the exterior and be stored inside.

·         The second pocket is for organization, including some webbing to help secure pens, flashlights and multi-tools.

Low-profile rear panel and straps allow for use with other backpacks if needed. That panel has loop for mounting ID patches and PALS webbing for securing any other small pouches.

“This rig was designed with explicit input from the communities we serve,” said Rizo-Patron. “They told us what was missing from the chest rig market and our engineers went to work.”

The Team Wendy Radio Rig retails for $134.95 and is now available for purchase on TeamWendy.com, through authorized Team Wendy dealers, and will be available on Amazon.com in the coming weeks.

Team Wendy has also partnered with Silynx®, a leader in the communications industry, to offer a version of the CLARUS XPR in-ear communications system with a specific wiring configuration that serves as a sound complement to the new Radio Rig, as well as the EXFIL SAR helmet platform. The Silynx system, available for purchase through Team Wendy, consists of an in-ear headset, control box, dual comm splitter, and the option of a Smartphone adapter and one of four radio adapters compatible with 95 percent of radios on the market – including the Motorola APX.
