Sneak Peek – Dyneema Tegris Kit System “Ripper” by Honorpoint USA

Wednesday, December 6th, 2017

Manufactured from Tegris and Dyneema fabric, the DTKS Ripper plate carrier weighs less than a pound without plates.

The carrier is assembled via a combination of sewing and rivets, which are discernible in the photos. Plates are inserted from the top.

In addition to PALS compatible 30 round ammo pouches, there is also a pouch for the AN/PRC-152 radio. Despite incorporating a bungee system, the construction of the pouch provides magazine retention.

A carrier made solely from Dyneema fabric as well as a chest rig have also been developed.

Coming soon, but interested Units and Agencies should contact Honorpoint now.

Milipol 17 – Meindl X-SO Corium GTX

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

Although German brand Meindl’s X-SO Corium GTX isn’t a tactical shoe, it gets a mention here on SSD for its use of Gore-tex Surround technology. I have a pair of shoes from another manufacturer with Surround and I really like the membrane which offers venting out of the sides of the sole in order to cut down on the hot feeling many get while wearing footwear with Gore-tex.

Meindl refers to the color as Black, but its really a deep Grey hue. Sizes 6-12 UK.
