FirstSpear Friday Focus – Dee Luxe AGB Suspenders

Friday, September 4th, 2015


For this week’s Friday Focus, we’re taking a look at the Dee Luxe AGB Suspenders. Building upon the utility offered by the Assaulters Gun Belt line of accessories, the Dee Luxe suspenders increase support and comfort, and give the wearer an option to forgo a load carrying vest and go old school with belt and suspenders. As you can see in the image below, the Dee Luxe Suspenders allow the wearer to turn their entire AGB load out into a quick chest rig-style setup.


Additionally, the low-profile design and hardware used in the construction of the Dee Luxe Suspenders allows them to easily be worn underneath an armor carrier when one is required.

Available in Black, Coyote, MultiCam, and Ranger Green.

High Speed Gear – NVG Counterbalance Pouch

Monday, August 31st, 2015

SWANSBORO, North Carolina – Aug. 31, 2015 – High Speed Gear has a history of producing some of the most versatile tactical pouches and platforms in the industry.


In keeping with that standard, High Speed Gear is proud to release its new NVG Counterbalance Pouch, designed by RE Factor Tactical. This pouch is designed specifically for individuals using night vision systems with a battery pack attachment. The pouch comes with two .45-pound steel plates to give the user an additional counterweight of just under 1 pound. When combined with the battery pack and batteries, the total counterweight can equal up to around 1.5 pounds to improve balance and comfort with NVGs.

Unlike other counterweights on the market, the Counterbalance Pouch does not impede the use of the NVG battery pack. The pouch is designed to allow the user to utilize the on-off toggle switch, as well as easily change out batteries without removing the battery pack or pouch. Furthermore, we added three small pockets that can be used to stash survival gear, batteries, or any other small mission-essential items. The pack comes with an outer loop panel for adhesion of patches or the addition of illumination marking equipment. It also includes a hook panel on the back to adhere to the back of common Ops-Core/Team Wendy helmets and two bungee support tabs that can adhere to the sides of the helmet to help secure the pouch in place in austere environments.

The NVG Counterbalance Pouch is available now. Made 100% in the USA by High Speed Gear, and designed by Veterans at RE Factor.

SEK Solutions – SEKURE Weapon Storage Systems

Thursday, August 27th, 2015

SEKURE Weapon Storage Systems is the Weapon Storage series from SEK Solutions. They are local to us and we recently had a chance to check them out. I came away impressed. Long gone are the old M16 weapon racks, and good riddance. They were designed to secure an M16 with no accessories fitted to the weapon. These days, military units, LE agencies and other related activities store amd issue a wide variety of weapon systems, often with sights, lasers and lights attached. They need to be secure, yet accessible in operational configuration. The SEKURE line meets these requirements.


Constructed from 16 gauge steel, the SEKURE racks feature a 7-point docking mechanism with single or double hasps, and incorprate mounting holes for bolting directly to a surface or combining multiple racks together. Their product line includes stackable weapon racks, storage specific for pistols and tasers, weapon storage lockers, weapon & evidence security racks, and more.

Here you can see comparison photos between SEKURE’s storage capabilities and features and others commonly found in arms rooms. In the examples, SEKURE is on the left while the competitors are on the middle and right:

Additionally, several of the SEKURE weapon racks have been awarded National Stock Numbers, and can be viewed along with the rest of the product range at

Flagrant Beard Launches Retail Website

Monday, August 24th, 2015

Flagrant Beard has provided a rather spirited press release for the launch of their retail website, where they’re offering belts, printed t-shirts, and even socks for the discerning customer. You can read the full release below:

24 August 2015 Tennessee, USA
For Immediate Release

Flagrant Beard, LLC Launches New Apparel Line

Flagrant Beard, LLC, perhaps the only adventure, hard-use apparel company headquartered in a barn, is proud to announce the launch of their new line of products. The first wave of ginger-spawned goodness includes belts, printed tees and socks – soft goods intended for people who are anything but soft.

Flagrant Beard products are meant to be outdoors, on the edge and at risk. Though they will likely fit timid people with cold souls they will never suit them. This company has been, since its very inception, dedicated to the principle that you should wring every drop of joy from life; to the men and women who step into the arena, who know what it is to court failure by daring greatly; to those who would rather sweat and bleed and strive than sit comfortably at home protected by the toil and vigilance of others.


Flagrant Beard was never meant for those who are content to rest, to play it safe or to stand quietly by while great things are done elsewhere….in short, Flagrant Beard is about doing what needs to be done. It’s living life, “Balls out.”

Though our initial offering was a very well received shirt emblazoned with that very phrase, the most popular in our lineup thus far has been our belts. Handsome enough for church or formal dinner but rugged enough for a fight, they’re hand-made by Amish artisans near Nashville to exacting standards. The belts come in 2 styles, FB DuraBelt and FB Articulated Leather. Articulated Leather versions are available in black, burgundy or tan (sorry, no MultiCam or Gucciflage, and there’s no MOLLE or Velcro either). They’re 3/16 in. thick so they won’t “taco” under a gun or magazines and offer contrast stitching.

The DuraBelts look and feel like leather but are actually a polyester webbing with a TPU coating that makes them more durable, waterproof and easy to clean. They offer 2 ½ tons of tensile strength; enough to STABO some guys, though so far we haven’t actually tried it. DuraBelts are anti-microbial and offer extreme resistance to abrasion and moisture. Both belt styles feature threaded rivets to allow for interchangeable buckles, both are 1.5 in. wide and both are sturdy enough to beat someone to death but remain sufficiently comfortable for all-day wear.

Oh, and they’ll hold up your pants.


Sizes available include Small through XXL. Find the one most suitable for you with our sizing chart, or read more on our belt page.


Everything we do at Flagrant Beard is patriotic – including pouring the concrete for HQ!

Flagrant Beard offers gear for women too, of course, particularly those who’d rather be training for a gunfight than baking cakes. Take a look at the Annie shirt if you’re a lady who likes the smell of cordite or engine oil. After all, caliber knows no gender. You can find the complete line of women’s shirts online here.

FirstSpear Friday Focus – AGB Point Pad

Friday, August 21st, 2015


For this week’s Friday Focus, we’re taking a look at the AGB (Assaulters Gun Belt) Point Pad.  Back when I was a young man in the 90s, belt pads were all the rage, having been brought over from the UK where they were pretty common.  But they were all full belt pads and no one ever padded just sections of a belt like this.   The Point Pad just offers comfort where you need it.  Featuring comfort ventilated foam, wicking mesh, and multiple points of security, it can be used behind holsters, mag pouches, and other belt-mounted accessories.


Available in Black, Coyote, MultiCam, and Ranger Green. – AGB Point Pad

Tribe One PackTach

Thursday, August 20th, 2015


My favorite part of Outdoor Retailer is finding new products from small companies. While the PackTach from Tribe One isn’t new, it’s certainly new to me. It allows you to create an attachment point on any fabric without cutting holes.


The PackTach is molded from acetal resin and used in combination with a 1″-3″ carabiner. You simply place the PackTach on the back of the fabric and guide the carabiner into place where it pins the fabric in place creating a new attachment point where none previously existed.

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

The FCR accommodates 8 x M4 style mags with an adjustable bungee retention which also allows AK mags to be easily changed out. There are a total of 4 utility pouches.
