The inbuilt plate holder allows fixation of small hard armor plates. The rear section offers the opportunity to attach extra lengths of straps.

Plattenträger VI. Generation: The sixth generation of the renowned plate carrier comes with three separately usable cable guides on the front. A storage compartment with a Velcro closing is located on the frontal collar region. The inbuilt plate holder allows fixation of small hard armor plates. Furthermore the slim rescue handles provide fast access in critical situations.

LHT-First-759x500

The First Responder pouch was designed to provide fast and straightforward first-response medical assistance. The lid features a small compartment for handling and affixing scissors using a 20 mm strap. Medical emergency equipment can be carried using the lower storage compartment. The removable waist belt offers the possibility to attach the pouch on plate carriers, vests and backpacks using clips, which are sold separately.   

LH_abwurfsack

Through PALS the small Abwurfsack/Dump pouch (single-row) is a very compact, reliable and easily mountable piece of gear. It can be used to safely stow empty magazines, medical waste and other quickly packed material.

LH_Funkgeraetetasche_HL_universal

This reliable Funkgerätetasche/Radio Pouch HL (universal) for transporting radios comes with two lateral elastic bands, which makes it very flexible. The closing mechanism features a cord and a quick-release buckle, offering the possibility to use the radio while inside the pouch.

The useful features of the Klettergurt/Harness-Set are focused on tactical use. Removable leg loops with quick-release buckles grant a maximum scope of action.

B&T – 40MM Ammo Carriers

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

I spied these leg mounted subloads for 40mm rounds in the Brügger & Thomet booth during Germany’s Enforce Tac expo in Germany. The carrier is meant to be used with the B&T GL06, but they could be handy for anyone using 40mm launchers.

They are offered in different sizes to carry different numbers of rounds, but as you can see, the carriers are long enough for riot control rounds and feature indentations on the sides of the individual round carriers to offer some friction and keep them in place.

Claw Gear – New Line Of Laser Cut Mag Pouches

Monday, March 13th, 2017

Swiss brand, Claw Gear, introduced a new line of laser cut magazine pouches during IWA. Made from a composite material called Tacticoat. 

They are similar to many other products on the market with integrated, PALS compatibility. Except, for two things. First off, they are being offered by a European brand, which gives them a leg up in that market.

Second, they developed a means to keep the flap handy, in the event you need to replace the magazine in the pouch. The flap falls forward on the pouch and stays put via Velcro.

This image shows the colors available.

Additionally, they’ve introduced a belt with laser cut PALS slots. It’s called the KD-One and uses a G-hook to secure the running eod of the adjuster. The two G-hooks on either side of the belt in this photo are there to hold the belt for display.

Completely sourced and handmade in the United States the Link and Link Stretch Lanyards come backed with Trayvax’s lifetime warranty.

Raptor Tactical – Retainer Belt

Friday, February 17th, 2017

The Raptor Tactical Retainer Belt is one of the most feature rich rigs I’ve run across. It is a two component system consisting of an inner belt you thread through your pant loops along with an outer rigger belt with integrated load carriage slots.

Naturally, the two belts can be worn alone but they are complimentary, integrating via Velcro. The outer belt can be quickly donned and doffed as needed while the inner belt incorporates padding.

This pistol retainer slot can be moved anywhere around the belt.

Their Patent Pending retainer system belt accepts pistols regardless of being left or right handed. Additional retention loops can be moved around your belt creating pockets for the items like spare magazines or a flashlight.

So you can distinguish yourself from the others, they’ve included a Velcro pile section at the rear of the belt for identification or IFF.

Inside the belt, Rapter Tactical has incorporated a secret compartment with a zipper so you can stash your small items like a spare key or money.

This video is a few months old, so ignore the Kickstarter announcement at the very end. However, it does a great job going over the belt.

Offered in sizes: Small: 28-32″ Medium: 32-36″ Large: 36-40″ Extra Large: 40-44″

Colors: Black, Coyote, Ranger Green and MultiCam.

Buckle options: Cobra-D 45mm, Cobra 45mm, Cobra-D Mini 25mm, Conra Mini 25mm, Cobra GT, and Triglide
