Carryology recently published a first look article on AustriAlpin’s new COBRA Sport Buckle. Made of 7075 aluminum and brass, the Sport Buckle is designed as a lower cost option for use with clothing, sports equipment, backpacks, etc., when the higher-cost, load bearing standard COBRA buckle would be overkill.

SOFIC 2015 – Blue Force Gear

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

While located at an offsite location, Blue Force Gear is very much here at this year’s SOFIC. They debuted their “wall of gear” and a couple of things caught my eye.

First off is the Triple M4 Mag Now! Pouch hitting the site for sale within the week.  
Next is the Water Bottle Pouch that is currently available for agency purchase.  It holds both 1 Qt canteen and Nalgene bottle.  

Seen here are MultiCam Tropic and Arid examples.  The matching trims and pulls aren’t in yet so these protos use standard MultiCam.  
Like all BFG products these are Made in USA and incorporate MOLLEminus features as well as Helium Whisper technology.

MAXPEDITION – ROLLYPOLY Folding Dump Pouch 10th Anniversary Video

Monday, May 18th, 2015

MAXPEDITION released a video in celebration of the 10th anniversary of their ROLLYPOLY Folding Dump Pouch. Designed by and licensed from Cass Chin of Military Morons, the ROLLYPOLY is a compact dump/utility pouch with a minimal footprint which easily attaches to either a belt or PALS webbing. When fully unrolled, the standard ROLLYPOLY is capable of storing up to 7 M4/AR-15 magazines either vertically or horizontally.

History Of The MOLLE Canteen Cover

Friday, May 8th, 2015

Here’s a brief post on the history and function of the Pouch, Canteen-General Purpose AKA the MOLLE Canteen Cover.

MOLLE Canteen carrier

The MOLLE Canteen Cover was originally intended to be used on the RACK system (Ranger Assault Carrying kit), which was a chest rig effort started by 2/75th Ranger BN in 1997. The canteen carrier was intended to be used to carry a canteen or any other equipment, including NVG’s, ammunition, etc. the Ranger may require on his fighting load. The Carrier was added to the MOLLE program in the late 1990′s, using the nomenclature ‘Pouch, Canteen-General Purpose’. Two each are issued in the standard MOLLE rifleman kit.

Canteen Carrier 2

The pouch features two outside pockets designed around the standard First Aid Field Dressing. The main pouch will support up to 5 Standard GI aluminum M-16/M4 magazines. When used as a canteen carrier, the top flap should be tucked inside the main compartment, and the draw string should be secured around the top of the canteen with enough tension to reduce debris entering the pouch, but not too tight to make it difficult to remove or secure the canteen. The carrier will support the canteen cup. There is also a padded liner (NSN is 8465-01-538-2043) which can be inserted into the carrier, which will protect sensitive items (primarily NVG’s).

Warrior Expo – Juggernaut Defense

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

I first saw the Radio Dock several years ago during a visit to Juggernaut’s HQ.  While they’ve been offered to various programs, they’ve never been a standard product, until now.  
The Radio.Dock was designed to attach directly to the PALS webbing on armor to house any bottom-battery tactical radio in the inventory (148/152 style battery). The Radio.Dock™ utilizes a rugged battery eliminator with capability to be power-only or power/data capable. Thales even uses it with their 148’s with Mission-Modules on the back. The open configuration effectively allows all of the data-sidehats to stay attached and the face of the radio to be protected while allowing much of the radio housing and the top half of the battery housing to stay exposed for conducting heat off the radio (very critical). The radio is secured via the patent pending PPIP and BOA-Closure System allowing the user to pivot the radio away from the armor to interface with the display/control on the faceplate.

The Radio.Holster on the other hand is a sub-$100 alternative to the Radio.Dock for those who don’t need a data connection.   It still has the PPIP and Boa-Closure System with a ‘battery-cup’ rather than the bayonet features used on the Radio.Dock™ to create the  Radio.Holster™.   

Both are PALS compatible. Available from
