SHOT Show 20 – Further Faster Designs

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2020

Further Faster Designs is a small Veteran owned business. We wrote about their Super B Poncho Liner awhile back. Their latest product is the RAP Bino Harness.

Not only is there room for your binos…

But you can keep a pistol, or other item handy in the Rapid Access Panel.


SHOT Show 20 – Crye Precision

Tuesday, January 21st, 2020

Just like every year in the past we begin with Crye Precision. The most new thing in the Booth is G4 Hot Weather clothing.

With an ensemble that consists of Field Shirt and Pants as well as Combat Shirt and Pants, the G4 Hot Weather is made from a combination of Polartec Power Dry mesh jersey with X-static anti-microbial fibers as well as two weights of Apocalypse fabric with the heavier weight for high wear areas on the Field Pant and Apocalypse and VTX Ripstop at high wear areas on the Combat Pant. Additionally, the Field Pant incorporates a gaiter at the bottom hem.

These will be offered in MultiCam and Ranger Green, sizes XS-3X, Short – XLong.

With the Combat Shirt, the design was kept as close to a base layer t-shirt as possible. You’ll definitely note the exposed buttons on pockets rather than the low profile Velcro fasteners. This is because in a jungle environment Velcro just doesn’t work as well due to being constantly wet and picking up errant material.

Next up is G4 Combat and Field apparel in new colors Khaki, Ranger Green and Black. Same new cut and VTX ripstop fabric, just additional colors.

We’ll wrap up with the LRB (Load Rated Belt), LRB Leg Loops and ASR (Adjustable Safety Restraint) Lanyard. These were developed for a USSOCOM requirement.

The LRB is rated to 15kN and offered in sizes S-XL in MultiCam, Coyote, Ranger Green and Black. Combined with the Leg Loops it forms a EN-12277 Compliant Climbing Harness. The ASR Lanyard is rated to 15 kN and adjustable from 18″-30″.

The Leg Loops are offered in SM/MD and L/XL in Coyote and Black and the ASR Lanyard is one-size in Coyote or Black.

Magpul Announces New DAKA Products

Friday, January 17th, 2020

Magpul has announced the following new DAKA products:

DAKA Volume Pouch

At three liters, the DAKA Volume Pouch offers double the volume of the Medium DAKA but in a similar footprint. That extra space is thanks to the bellows which also allows it to stand upright in its own.

The wide mouth and water-resistant zippered opening allow the user to insert and remove items with one hand without having to hold it open with the other.


DAKA Field Tray Small and Large

The Field Tray is similar to valet trays in that it stores flat and has snaps on each of the four corners to raise the sides. However, the Field Tray is made from the robust DAKA material which is resistant to Petroleum, Oils and Lubricants, making it a great space to perform weapon maintenance. Magpul made it even better by adding a magnet in the bottom to keep small metallic parts from rolling away.

Available in BLK and FDE.

Small Dimensions
Flat: 11.50” x 7.50”
Tray: 9.00” x 5.00”

Large Dimensions
Flat: 11.50” x 11.50”
Tray: 8.75” x 8.75”

Magpul DAKA Everyday Folding Wallet

The minimalist Everyday Folding Wallet has an ID slot, but you access it from the rear. It will hold up to seven cards securely with an additional external pocket allows for quick access to business cards or folded cash.
