Warrior West – Jedburgh Cover Shirt By TD x Re-Factor

Friday, April 21st, 2017

The Jedburgh Cover Shirt was a collaborative between Re-Factor and TD. They spent over a year designing and refining the details, with more than 10 sample iterations made before they were ready for production. This was a purpose built shirt from the beginning, built for people who need to operate in warm environments without being overt. Both Tactical Distributors and RE Factor Tactical will have them for sale in late May.

Fabric: The fabric is a moisture wicking 2 way stretch fabric designed for hot environments. The stretch gives the user freedom to move without constraint. On the inside of the placket there is a heavy nylon fabric with pockets to give the user structure for when they sweep the shirt back for a clean draw and to reduce imprinting of any weapon the user may have in their appendix area.

Snaps: They chose snaps for easy access of weapons. The snaps are dyed to match the color of the shirt so they do not standout to any onlookers.

Pockets: Inside, there are 3 document pockets. Each is sized to fit a US issued passport or other small cards or pieces of paper.

Left chest external pocket: Has a one snap closure. The two pockets that are on the inside nylon reinforced plackets can hold coins or weights for extra weight when sweeping the shirt to the side for weapon presentation. The top stitch of the pockets is not noticeable on the outside.

Branding: There is no external branding on this shirt. Hence Covert.

Colors: The first two colors we are going to offer are: Dark Urban Grey and Blue Shadow

Fit: Athletic

Warrior West – Belleville Quick Reaction Force

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

This is a sneak peek of Belleville’s new Quick Reaction Force line under their foreign sourced, Tactical Research brand. There is some climbing shoe DNA in this line, with to-toe lacing and full rubber toes. The sole also has a fast rope instep. In addition to the more traditional Black, Coyote and Sage, there is a more low-viz two color Bark/Sand option, which I prefer.

Warrior West – Wild Things White Out Overwhite Kit in MultiCam Alpine

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Rather than traditional heavy, cotton overwhites which absorbe maisture and freeze, Wild Things makes their White Out Overwhite from a functional and durable 70-denier nylon fabric that is abrasion resistant and blocks the wind. Printed in MultiCam Alpine, it offers near IR suppression and the fabric is treated with a durable water resistant finish.

The system consists of Jacket with helmet compatible Hood, Pants and Pack Cover. I like the simple design, with single pass through access.

Features:
• Top has a full front zip and and helmet compatible, adjustable, stowaway hood.
• Top also offers bilateral, angled 10” pass thru pockets for easy accessibility to vest or kit.
• Pants have a stretch waistband, and 18” ankle zippers for easy donning and doffing over boots. Grommets at cuffs allow for tie down under boots.
• Pants also have rear pocket and mesh lined, front hand pockets.
• All zippers covered for added protection and to eliminate straight lines through your camo
• Pack Cover comes in three sizes – S, M or L – to fit most packs

These are already in service with 1st ASOG. Interested units and agencies can purchase these through ADS Inc.

Warrior West – FirstSpear AAC FROG Kit

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

The AAC FROG Kit adapts First Spear’s Assaulter Armor Carrier for use in a maritime environment. It is getting quite a bit of interest here at Warrior West due to the modular flotation option.

IMG_0994

Standard in the kit are FS Bouyancy Compensators, Adaptive Cummerbund Flotation Elements and a 2″ belly band to secure the front and back panels to the user without having to wear a full cummerbund.

IMG_0991

The adaptive cummerbund uses the AAC instant adjust back panel.

IMG_0990

6/12 modular sections on the left and right of the front carrier panel allow the user to install the modular pockets of their choice and at the height they need for increased comfort and mobility.

IMG_0992

There is also a rebreather harness kit which allows the rebreather to be attached directly to the AAC and easily ditched once free of the surf zone.

The AAC Frog kit is for Governmemt use only and is already being fielded by a customer. Contact www.first-spear.com for additional information.

Warrior West – Tactical Electronics Launches CORE Product Line

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

Tactical Electronics has been in business since 1999 and is well known for their under the door camera commonly used by SWAT teams. Over time they have refined their technology and introduced new products, leading to the introduction of the new modular, CORE system which consists of two grip options and four camera heads. The user mixes and matches the components for the intended application.


The Grip holds the electronics and the heads are used for different applications. Grips are the CORE Grip and the CORE Pole Grip. Both accept any of the heads (the Pole Grip doesn’t accept the articulating head). Integrated into the CORE Grip is an eye piece for up close work. Additionally, there is a wrist mounted monitor, for wireless remote viewing, which relies on digital encrypted radio for the link.

Heads offered are CORE Flex Camera, CORE Under Door Camera, CORE Pole Camera and Articulating Scope.


In addition to color or B/W images, Tactical Electronics also offers a thermal image. However, they’ve now introduced an overlay mode, similar to I2/Thermal fusion, which provides outlines of objects unto the thermal image. In the graphic above, you can see what the thermal image looks like alone, and then below, how it looks in overlay mode.  The enhancement is striking.
