FirstSpear Friday Focus – Meet The Multimag And See More At Warrior East

Friday, July 7th, 2017

FirstSpear is in the business of building advanced lightweight armor platforms and load bearing equipment designed for the professional user. Next week FirstSpear will be displaying their wares in Virginia Beach at ADS Warrior Expo East and will be debuting an all new pocket designed to secure a variety of different magazines. You get the first look at the Multimag pocket today.

I have been sworn to secrecy on the Multimag since last summer. The adjustable dial allows the user to customize tension. It’s great to see it finally coming to market. But please note, the Multimag is not available for order yet. See it, and other FirstSpear products, in person at booth #1408 at Warrior East, July 13 – 14th in Va Beach.

The newly redesigned TYR Tactical® COMA Sniper Harness is an extremely lightweight versatile load carriage platform that was developed with the direct feedback from US Special Operations Snipers. The COMA features a low profile shoulder harness and cummerbund system that allows for exceptional load carriage, comfort, and adjustability. The Lower Back Panel is easily adjustable for the height of the wearer.


The COMA System comes standard with the 3 Row/8 Column PALS webbing on the both sides of the cummerbund and on the lower back panel for MOLLE attachment. It also features four internal cummerbund pockets that can be used for M4/M16 mags and two 6”x6” plates when needed.


It’s engineered utilizing our revolutionary PV® material which offers significant weight reduction with increased resistance to abrasion. PV® has been tested to have 7-10 times higher abrasion resistance than standard mil spec nylon. PV® also enhances the ballistic attributes of armor within the vest. Antimicrobial/FR treated padded spacer mesh is used internally for comfort.

AGULUK – The Leg Pack System On Kickstarter

Monday, June 19th, 2017

AGULUK Kryptec Highlander

AGULUK is a load-carrying system developed by avid outdoorsman Cody Gustin, currently up for funding on Kickstarter. It’s designed to replace a traditional backpack, removing all carrying capacity from the back, and instead distributing the weight on the legs and hips. In appearance, AGULUK looks a bit like a combination of large carry pouches/miniature packs hanging from a climbing belt.

The AGULUK series comes in two sizes: R-Pack and H-Pack. The R-Pack, or Hiking Pack, holds up to 2000 cu in of gear, 1000 cu in each side. The H-Pack, Hunting Pack, holds 1500 cu in per side, for a total of 3000 cu. As you can see from the animation above, you can fit a solid amount of gear in an H-Pack.

AGULUK will be available in a variety of solid colors and camouflages, including Kryptek patterns, depending on the model.
