Arc’teryx LEAF 2018 – Courier Bag 15

Monday, December 11th, 2017

This article offers the first peek at the 2018 Arc’teryx LEAF line with the new Courier Bag 15. It’s a 15 liter capacity messenger style bag for use at administrative as well as operational tasks.

Inside, there’s a removable Velcro-faced internal divider, which can cradle a sub gun or a 13″ – 15″ laptop. It will also accept after-market Velcro pouches from a variety of manufacturers. I saw the Courier Bag 15 earlier this year and I understand prototypes have been under evaluation at SIG Academy for some time as it will accept the SIG MCX Rattler. The design is nondescript and you don’t notice the access zipper at the side. I also really like the fully adjustable three-point shoulder strap, which makes the load quite stable.

Constructed from a plain weave, high tenacity nylon, the Courier Bag 15 is durable, weather resistant and most importantly, discreet.

Available after the new year, contact your favorite Arc’teryx LEAF dealer for details, or visit leaf.arcteryx.com.

MATBOCK Monday – Gunner Station Pouch and Panel

Monday, December 11th, 2017

The newest product in the MATBOCK collection comes directly from the operators. They needed a solution for a long standing problem that turret gunners have independently solved, but here is the MATBOCK solution. From helicopter door gunners, to SBT operators they have provided a great solution.


The Gunner Station Pouch and Panel are a great product for any mounted machine gun position. The panel easily secures to the platform frame or turret using 550 cord, allowing the gunner to customize their pouch with critical tools like pry-bar, lights, and CLP to name a few. Understanding that fixing a down machine gun on any platform is critical to a units survivability, we build in retractable lanyards giving the operator comfort in knowing their tools are safe to let go once the malfunction has been cleared.

Key Features:
Waterproof / durable Ghost Material construction
Quickly attach / detach the pouch from the panel with MATBOCK’s Tabs
Two saltwater resistant lanyards
Three options:

1) Gunner Station Pouch, includes 1 pouch
2) Gunner Station Pouch and 1 Panel
3) Gunner Station Pouch/Panel Kit, which includes 1 panel and 2 pouches

215 Gear Opens Pre-Orders For 2 New Products

Friday, November 17th, 2017

215 Gear has added two new belt systems, available now for pre-order; the Uber Rigger’s Belt and the Uber Shooter’s Belt. Both are a combination of features from competition shooting and tried and tested features already built into their Ultimate Riggers Belts. 215 Gear feels these are by far, the most feature packed belts on the market.

Uber Riggers Belt

Designed to be worn alone or as part if a system with their inner Uber Liner Belt, the Uber Riggers Belt incorporates an internal plastic stiffener and PALS channels to the outside. The Austrialpin Cobra Buckle has a custom wide mouth version of the friction adapter, allowing for easier removal from the belt, eliminating the fight of most other belts, and reducing the peeling off of the sewn in Velcro. Additionally, rather than the parachute v-ring, 215 Gear uses a sewn-in attachment point.

Uber Shooters Belt

215 Gear’s Uber Shooters Belt combines the best characteristics of sport shooting with the functionality of MOLLE. It is similar in construction to the Uber Riggers Belt except that it doesn’t feature the sewn-in attachment point.

Both belts are available in MultiCam, Khaki and Black and in sizes to accommodate waists 25″ to 45″. The pre-order is open now and will close 11DEC17, with the pre-orders shipping 12DEC17, just in time for Christmas.
