SHOT Show – Blackhawk! Diversion Wax Canvas Line of Bags

Monday, January 26th, 2015

Looks like waxed canvas is in this year. Blackhawk! has introduced a series of bags made from 10.10 oz Army Duck Martexin wax canvas. Offered in Earth and Slate colors, the Messenger, Satchel and Rucksack all incorporate hidden pistol compartments. There is also a matching accessory pouch which opens into a stretch nylon pocket for a water bottle or SSE use.




(They are already up under the what’s new category.)

ORWM – Mystery Ranch

Saturday, January 24th, 2015

The Java is a new urban pack from Mystery Ranch. It takes the TT-zip concept to a whole new level, with the center zip accessing a compartment and the large U shape, dual zip opens the main compartment from either side making it ambidextrous.


The Java offers padded mesh back and shoulder straps.


It’s a 21l design with dual compartments on either side of the center access zip.


Last but not least, it can be opened completely.


Coming FALL 2015, in Black, Coyote and Midnight.

Friday, January 23rd, 2015


Blue Force Gear has introduced the Micro DAP (Denied Area Pattern) pack. Inspired by outdoor day packs, this will come in at about $125 with first quarter delivery.

Sneak Peek – Grey Ghost Gear $10,000 Pack

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015


I looked at this pack and said, “Tell me about this $10,000 pack here.” After Linsey Lea gave me a dirty look, she told me that its made from Waxed Canvas, which will become distressed as you wear it, adding character. The look will blend in to many an environment.

Based on the Removable Operator Pack, it’s a cool design with a neato laser engraved leather label. I don’t think this pack will actually cost you $10,000 but you’ll look like you’re worth it when you wear it about town.
Both Tactical Tailor and Grey Ghost Gear have a whole slew of new products coming.

Internally, it has a Velcro panel for use of modular pouches.


The Chamber also has a dedicated Eyepro pouch as well as an electronics pouch built into the pack.

SHOT Show – Sandpiper of California / Pack Rabbit

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015


Pack Rabbit offers two different sizes of rigid pack frames that pull double duty as chairs. The larger size Pack Mule is used by Marines to carry breaching tools and odd sized loads. Sure, you can sit on it if you want, but the beauty is that it keeps the pack and frame upright when deployed.


Although it can be used as a stand alone frame, Sand Piper of California has developed a pack bag that integrates with the Pack Mule. The Pack Mule has over 20 attachment points to integrate a variety of pack bags or loads. The frame integrates some flexion and you can set the amount of tension in the lumbar in order to maintain contact with the back.

Available in Stealth Black or Desert Sand, it features integrated closed cell foam padding.

The new Vertical Envelopment Pack or VEP was developed to attach directly to an armor platform. It can easily be flipped from the rear to the front in order to access gear or to get it off your back such as when riding in a vehicle.


They’ve developed a couple of mag pouches that integrate into the pack as well. Look for a write up soon.
