As functional as it is comfortable, the holster design provides users with ambidextrous options for appendix carry.

Each holster is packaged with two cant and ride height adjustment belt clips for 1.5- and 1.75-inch belts. For further customization, a passive retention detent with adjustment screws allows users to vary the amount of friction for personalized firearm security. With its low-cut design, the A.R.C. IWB can be used in conjunction with pistols featuring rear-mounted red dot sights. The A.R.C. IWB is also compatible with both compact and full-size pistol models and now includes fits for over 25 semi-automatic firearms.

IWB holster has always been based on versatility and comfort,” said Willie Vernon, Senior Director of Marketing for Blackhawk. “With its ability to accommodate both left and right-handed shooters as well multiple forms of concealed carry placement, the A.R.C. IWB can be customized for each individual user. For those seeking a deep concealment option that won’t hamper their daily movements, the A.R.C IWB won’t disappoint.”

Exped – Doublemat Evazote

April 1st, 2020

In the 1980s and early 90s Special Forces issued a Black closed cell foam mat which was quite a bit softer than the ones used by the Army. So soft in fact that they were often folded into squares and carried in the dead space between the back and frame of an ALICE pack rather than rolled in the traditional style. I haven’t seen one in years.

The other day I ran across the Doublemat Evazote from Expedition and it reminded of that old sleeping pad.

Multi-purpose: spread it out or fold it. Doubled up it is about 8mm and can accept some clothing in between – or layed out flat measuring 2 m x 1 m, for example as ground layer for an ultralight mat.

Works as an insulated tent carpet, sleeping mat, rain cover or flotation aid – or cut it up to make insoles for your shoes. No expedition leaves home without one.

Made of Evazote, an environmentally sound closed cell EVA foam (Ethyl Vinyl Acetat) which is optimised for expedition use. Acclaimed for extreme durability and is not rendered useless by thorns, debris or crampons.

Exped claims it’s a dark color in order to facilitate quick drying of condensation.

Each episode takes a deep dive into the life of one of someone who has made a name for themselves in the outdoors or with firearms. And, in keeping with the Empty-Cases, it’s all about the shot, theme, each guest will answer three questions:

1. What was the best shot you ever made.

2. What was the worst shot you ever made.

3. Where did you get or who gave you, your shot or big break.

The Empty-Cases Podcast can be found on multiple podcast directories and multiple episodes are already available for download. The podcast and all current episodes are also accessible at, www.empty-cases.com and podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/empty-cases-podcast/id1504715710
