Warrior West 18 – BLACKHAWK Multipoint Sling

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

I was checking out the various lines offered by Vista Outdoor when I saw this fixture on a sling in the Blackhawk section. It reminded me of a frame surrounding a Red Dot Sight.


Turns out, it’s the rapid adjust slider for their Multipoint Sling. Although it’s fixed in an open position, it’s soft enough to collapse when you need it to.


The webbing material is offered in slick, padded and stretch variants in Coyote and Black. The sling is Berry compliant and offered in multiple mounting configurations including QD, HK hooks and free ends with no attachment, allowing you to use your own parts. But, my favorite feature is that they’ve included a two-point to single-point adapter on the models fitted with QDs.



Warrior West 18 – Belleville 901V2 “Burma” Jungle Boot

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

The 901V2 is Belleville’s Jungle Boot, called the “Burma.” The V2 is because it’s their second version, with a thinner midsole than the first version.


As you can see, it features a Panama II outsole. Inside, there’s a puncture resistant textile insole and medial and lateral side drainage perforations. The vamp construction acts as a screen for sand and debris.


There’s also a removable PU footbed which provides some shock absorption and sits the sole just a bit off of the puncture proof insole which might have a bit of water which hasn’t drained. This helps keep your feet drier.

Warrior West 18 – LBT-WTV (Weight Training Vest)

Thursday, April 19th, 2018


Looking to offer an alternative to working out in your armored plate carrier, LBT worked with the fitness community to develop a functional/stable weight vest capable of handling the stress of a high intensity workout.


The weight vest can hold standard 5 or 10 lb circular plates that can be found at almost any gym/fitness center, they also partnered with Sorinex to develop weight plates specific to the shape of the vest that will come in 5/8/10 lbs plate options, the plates can be purchased with the vest or without.


Unlike most weight vests, the LBT-WTV also comes with an elastic compression strap to keep the weight vest stable during running and inverted exercises.


The LBT-WTV will be launched later this month via LBTINC.com, just in time for those of you training for this years Murph challenge.

Although it’s less than 1″ in diameter, the Northern Star Fire Compass will alert you to your directional heading no matter what orientation it’s in. You could be leaving my sideways and the compass’ lights will indicate one of eight cardinal directions via NEWS as well as color.

It was originally designed to be affixed to the inside of a SCBA mask to help firearm orient themselves in thick smoke, but it can also be used with other masks such as a CBRNE respirator.
