Blue Force Gear – Micro RACK

Friday, July 25th, 2014


The BFG Micro RACK is designed as a flexible, MOLLE compatible chest rig stripped of every unnecessary gram of weight and potential failure point, creating what BFG claims is the world’s lightest MOLLE compatible chest rig. Constructed of ULTRAcomp, a proprietary material that meets or exceeds 1000D Cordura and is flame resistant and stays dry, the Micro RACK utilizes the MOLLE Minus system of laser cut slots and voids in leu of a traditional webbing system.


Trimmed down to 6 columns to allow for maximum mobility, concealment, and minimalist setup, the Micro RACK is ideal for Low Vis, SAR, or a trimmed down range rig. It comes in two sizes: Small and Large, the difference largely being the waist strap and H-harness. The Large features front male side-release buckles place at 7.5″ on center allowing compatibility with certain Velocity Systems, Mayflower, and Crye Precision armor carriers. The H-harness is 1″ Cordura webbing sewn and arranged into an H-harness style setup.


The Micro RACK is available in Black, Coyote Brown, MultiCam, OD Green, and Wolf Grey. Made in the USA.

Thursday, July 24th, 2014


Conceived by Chris Fry of MDTS Training and co-developed with and manufactured by Raven Concealment Systems, the ModuLoader Pocket Shield is a flexible, modular platform which allows an individual to carry a small defensive implement inside a front pants pocket without visible pocket clips for printing.

Made from a flexible, high-strength polymer, the Pocket Shield is designed to ride comfortably in the front pocket of most pants, providing consistent orientation within the pocket to facilitate quick access and deployment of a light, tool, or weapon.


The mounting slots on the Pocket Shield allows for any tool, knife, or light with a pocket clip. These slots can also accommodate virtually any small knife sheath or pocket holster from a wide variety of angles. The Pocket Shield can also be trimmed by the end user to facilitate a full fighting grip on a weapon or to better fit in smaller pockets.

The ModuLoader Pocket Shield is 100% US made. Available in Black and Grey.

HTC Low Pro Belt

Designed to work with HTC’s Low Profile System and other HTC components, the Low Pro Belt is a 2-piece hybrid belt that consists of a nondescript top grain leather belt front end and a tactical nylon webbing belt.

With the underbelt threaded through pant loops, the overbelt can hold equipment and components securely in place without the need for belt keepers and can be easily removed and reattached.

Gellman Gear Tactical – Team USA RWB Plate Carrier

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

RWB Plate Carrier

We put this picture up on our Facebook page and it garnered a lot of attention, so in the interest of cool, custom gear, here’s the story:

The Team USA RWB (Red, White, and Blue) Plate Carrier was made by Fayetteville-based Gellman Gear Tactical as a small run for a specific group. Recently, they posted an auction on eBay for a custom version made to order for the winner. It was listed as being made from 1000D nylon with MilSpec elastic/webbing, buckles, and thread, removable shoulder pads, and a three (3) cell pouch “sized for 12-24 oz canned beverages”, built around the SAPI plate size requested. Although that auction has ended, don’t fret – there may be more of these carriers available at an undisclosed time if Gellman is able to source the proper hardware.

Keep an eye out on the Gellman Gear Tactical Facebook page and for more information.

Shellback Tactical – Great New Updates On The Banshee And More

Monday, July 14th, 2014

Jacksboro, Tennessee July 14, 2014 - Michael Wratten of Shellback Tactical announced today some important and exciting updates on their business and Banshee® line of products.

We have some exciting news for you. We’ve received a lot of feedback on the Banshee® from customers and we listened. The Banshee® Plate carrier line is being enhanced with some great new features. Going forward the newest versions of the Banshee® Plate Carrier Line will be updated and made out of 500D Cordura® vs 1000D Cordura®. As we transition there may still be some 1000D out there. The design of both the Banshee® Original and Banshee® QD will remain true to the core design; with the addition of new color offerings and a new add on. All Banshees will now come standard with a pair of lightweight shoulders pads. Many of you use our premium Banshee® Shoulder pads, and rest assured these will still be available as an upgrade and are not going away.

On colors we’ve expanded those for the Banshee® line as well. It’s now available for order in Operator Grey and ATACS LE as *New Color* options. Another great thing we updated is the price. The Banshee® Plate Carrier and Banshee® QD will now be set at the same price of $199.99 for either version. This is a great $50.00 savings on the Banshee QD that was originally at $249.99.

All Shellback Tactical products are still backed 100% with our Lifetime Warranty. Shellback is growing fast to meet our customer’s needs. We proudly manufacture all of our products in our own facility, with an American workforce located in Tennessee, Made in the USA & Berry Compliant. On new products we have added several to the line up to include our Hybrid Cobra Belt, many new pouches and armor options. Check our website regularly to see the new products. Stay tuned from us over the next few months as we release 20+ new products.

We would like to thank all of our loyal dealers and customers for their continued support and interest in our products.

Thank You – Respectfully,

Michael Wratten – President
