PIG Runt Urban Pack

Friday, March 27th, 2015

Patrol Incident Gear has launched the PIG Runt Urban Pack.


Considered the ‘prequel’ to the PIG gRUNT Modular Pack, the Runt Urban Pack is designed to bridge the gap between “your tacticool gear and your everyday items, even if your EDC includes a 10×12″ Shooter Cut plate.” The Runt has a minimalist footprint, with a tri-panel design taking cues from military issued Special Operation packs.



  • An electronics sleeve large enough to handle an 11” Macbook Air or 10×12” Shooter Cut plate, and lined with loop Velcro for securing a Velcro holster for concealed carry.
  • Two front mesh zippered pockets with high visibility backing to aid in quick-access identification of contents.
  • An exterior large zippered pocket large enough for a windbreaker or light rain jacket, and also featuring a secret stash pouch above the zipper.
  • Two accessory pockets sized to fit either a 20 round M4 magazine or two pistol mags each.
  • Stretch elastic water bottle holders and ¾” webbing for attaching myriads of other items (pens, chemlights, pocket folders and more).
  • Compatibility with the Runt frame sheet for additional rigidity as needed (sold separately).
  • 1

    Available in seven different color options: Black, Grey, MultiCam, MultiCam Tropic, MultiCam Arid, MultiCam Black and Woodland Camo. The PIG Runt Pack is Designed and Made in USA.

    S.O.TECH Tactical Releases Mission Go Bag Model A1

    Monday, March 16th, 2015

    S.O.TECH Has released the upgraded Mission Go Bag Model A1. The full release can be read below:

    Mission Go Bag A1 press release

    S.O.TECH / Special Operations Technologies releases its upgraded Mission Go Bag Model A1 to celebrate 10 years of fielding the original Mission Go Bag to US Special Operations Forces.

    While the Mission Go Bag became synonymous with Special Operations over the last decade, it has also been adopted throughout law enforcement, federal agencies, search and rescue and even urban fashion. S.O.Tech originally designed it as a trauma go bag to mount to its medical Mission Pack. Both medical packs have been issued throughout the GWOT to Special Forces Medics (18D) as part of the SOF-Medical Equipment Set. The inspiration came from S.O.TECH founder Jim Cragg’s first designs of a satchel and an ALICE pack-mounted go bag dating back to when he was a 2nd Lieutenant in 1994. As such, the Mission Go Bag’s DNA has been an integral part of S.O.TECH’s development as a company. Because of its compact design with large internal IV pockets, the bag was quickly adopted for use as a survival bag and a breacher / explosive demolitions bag. The Mission Go Bag won its place as the satchel bag of the SOCOM BALCS pack contract providing over 16,000 bags to Special Forces, Rangers, SEALS, MARSOF, ParaRescue and other US SOF units.

    The Mission Go Bag is one of the most versatile designs fielded. It can be configured for carry as a satchel, waist pack, sling pack, vest mount, pack mount, brief case, vehicle wall pack, belt pack, or chest pack because of its patented design. Five internal packets were ideal for 4 rifle magazines, an IFAK, an MRE, and a radio with batteries. Its ideal size found it used as a survival bag, surveillance/camera bag, submachine gun carrier, medical bag, sniper bag/rest, EOD bag, breacher bag, active shooter bag, laptop bag, and travel bag. Over the years the Mission Go Bag has been made in most camouflage colors including British DPM, German Flecktarn, Auscam, Canadian digital, Thai digital, and Japanese camouflage for our clients.

    In recent years, the Mission Go Bag has moved into the law enforcement arena as patrolman warbags shrank in size. Soon the requirement for active shooter response bags saw a demand because of its ability to carry a full tactical load in a sleek and compact design. At the same time, the Urban Fashion industry took note of the Mission Go Bag as Vans Shoe’s custom designed a tennis shoe with S.O.Tech, Dual Forces Gear and Vans OTW which paired the shoes with a black custom modified Mission Go Bag.

    Accessories for the Mission Go Bag A1 include a padded camera insert system, shoulder pad, flex tab MOLLE adapters, medical panel inserts, and a removable flap module. S.O.TECH’s Mission Pack shoulder straps and padded pistol belts all integrate with the design and are sold separately. The new MGB-A1 design incorporates a padded wrap into the handles, and improves internal organizer and pocket designs.

    215 Gear has just released a video detailing their new bags released for 2015.

    RE Factor – Reversible Rainfly Cover

    Wednesday, March 11th, 2015


    I’ve been hoping someone would offer a water resistant, reversible Orange to Coyote pack cover and RE Factor Tactical came through.  Their Reversible Rain Fly is specifically designed to fit on their ASO Bag as well as other 3-day assult pack sized bags. On top of the Coyote side is one 2 x 3″ and one 2 x 7″ loop platform for a name tape, marking IR patch for location at night or regular patch. On the opposite, high-vis Orange side is one 2 x 3″ loop panel for attachment of an IR patch or beacon light for easy marking.  It stays in place via toggles designed for the ASO bag as well as a bungie cord. 


    There is also an integrated stuff sack for storage.  Currently only available in a base color of Coyote.  Hopefully, they’ll get some more MultiCam versions in stock.  6.2 ounces.

    FirstSpear Friday Focus – Field Ruck

    Friday, March 6th, 2015

    After calls for a more streamlined field oriented pack, FirstSpear developed the Field Ruck which offers more than 2000 cu in of carrying capacity. This week, we’ll take a look at this new pack which is an adaptation of the HOTEL 23, one of FirstSpear’s original products.


    For one thing, They stripped all of the PALS webbing found on the HOTEL 23 the pack.  On the Field Ruck, the side slots, which FS calls “wings”, accept tripods or other items such as trekking poles, antennas, probes, etc. Additional side carriage of gear such as rockets is facilitated by the 1.5″ compression straps. The buckles are large enough to find in the dark and can be manipulated in the cold, even while wearing gloves or mittens. The 6/12 compatible waist belt can also be removed when not needed in order to further streamline the ruck.  Additionally, inside the bag, divider walls provide organization for the main compartment. These dividers can be pushed out of the way to maximize storage compartment space.

    I really like the roll top closure at the top of the ruck’s bag. An extension skirt on the top of the main compartment can be rolled and secured with a side release buckle. This gives you a little extra carrying room. Additionally, there is a zippered opening at the top for quick access.

    The Field Ruck’s bottom incorporates drainage holes.


    The shoulder strap quick release is easy to manipulate and should be familiar to military users.


    The lid can be removed and used on its own if needed.


    Offered in Black, Coyote, Ranger Green and MultiCam.
