All major seam lines are double stitched and feature Bar tacking for increased durability. The elbow pads feature a reinforced double layer. The H Smock also utilizes YYK zippers and ITW Nexus hardware.

For a limited time, the H Smock will be available in AOR1 (I believe this is seconds fabric, because the material is controlled). Also available in A-TACS AU and FG.

Mini Kit MK-7 In A-TACS AU

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

This is an announcement from PredatorBDU regarding the availability of 20DollarBandit’s Mini Kit MK-7 in A-TACS AU.

A-TACS AU Mini Cactus Patch

We are excited to announce that PredatorBDU will be offering the Mini Kit MK-7 EXCLUSIVE in A-TACS AU!

We have been big fans of 20DollarBandit Mini Kit MK-7 since we first saw it on Kickstarter. In case this is your first time seeing the MK-7 it is a Custom 5.5″ x 5.5″ pouch designed to hold small pieces of gear and fit into your cargo pocket, EDC backpack, automobile glove box or bug out bag. The inside of the pouch provides tons of organizational space giving you endless options for stowing gear such as knives, cash or cards, chem lights, smart phones, flashlights or headlamps, compass, paracord, maps, multi-tools, fire starters, first aid kits, pens, notepads, and just about anything else that you would normally find loose in your cargo pocket.

A-TACS AU Mini Cactus

The Mini Kit MK-7 is small, modular and works great as an EDC cargo pocket organizer for everyday carry. The Mini Kit MK-7 does not require fine motor skills to open under stress as there are no zippers and the clamshell design allows you to add as much gear as you want to the pouch without having to worry about it closing. If you have a few MK-7’s then you could modularize your EDC and simply grab the MK-7 appropriate for the day’s activities and go.

The Mini Kit MK-7 is manufactured 100% in the USA by Ares Armor using 1000D Nylon. Eric (20$Bandit) spent a good deal of time working with Ares Armor over the last two years on the design of the pouch. The MK-7 indicates it is the 7th prototype created with a plethora of field testing along the way to perfect the final production model. If you are interested in the history of the pouch you can check out Eric’s YouTube video below for his Kickstarter Campaign.

The interior the Mini Kit MK-7 features two large pockets with one pocket having a clear plastic window for visibility. There are three double-layered reinforced bungee loops with 2″ bungee at the base and 1″ bungee on top creating multiple retention options for your tools and kit. A retention pouch at the base holds any extended length tools from sliding out of the pouch. There is also an ITW Plastic D-Ring for retention that lays flat within the pouch when closed, this stops the D-ring from hanging-up as you remove it from your cargo pocket. On the exterior there is a strip of Velcro loop for nametape, ID, or other morale patches. The 1” bungee retention strap pulls over the pouch once closed to retain all of your gear.

Mini Kit Interior Packed Desert

In addition to the Mini Kit MK-7, we are offering the optional Mini Medic pouch, designed by 20$Bandit to fit in the clear plastic pocket of the Mini Kit MK-7. It comes in watertight re-sealable bag from Loksak and contains a comprehensive “bobo” style first aid kit. This is a great add-on for those that want to outfit their Mini Kit with a robust first aid kit right out of the box. The Mini Medic kit comes complete with Personal Anti-Microbial wipes x 4, one roll of .5″ adhesive tape, Burn Jel 3.5 g x 2, Moleskin x 2, Oval Eye Pad, Wound Closure Strips .25″ by 4″, Sheer Strips 1″ by 3″ x 10, Sterile Gauze Pad 3″ by 3″ x 4, Knuckle Bandages x 5, Hydrocortizone 1% Creme 1.5 g x 2, Mylar Space Blanket, and Triple Antibiotic Ointment, .9 g x 2.

clint_and_Jim1

Digital Concealment Systems welcomes Clint Hoover to the team. In his first outing representing A-TACS Camo, Clint will be attending the upcoming IWA Show in Nuremberg, Germany in March of this year where he will be visiting with our international brand partners and developing new relationships within the industry. Clint brings over 25 years of practical military experience to DCS, having joined the U.S. Army in 1987. After completing Basic Training, Advanced Individual Training, Airborne school and the Ranger Indoctrination Program, he was awarded his Ranger Beret, Ranger Scroll and served as a Special Operations Combat Medic with the 1st Bn. 75th Ranger Regiment. He was primarily responsible for providing emergency medical treatment and evacuation to his fellow Rangers. His special assignments also included serving as a medic for a Battalion Combat Observation Lasing Team (COLT) and the Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) team. Most of his warrior skills would derive from this premier Special Operations light Infantry unit; while focusing on Small unit tactics, Emergency field medical concepts and Ranger Operations. Due to Clint’s expertise, he was chosen to be a Task-Force medic for Operation BAT (Bahamas, Turks and Caicos), a joint Counter-Narcotic Interdiction unit. Operation BAT conducted counter drug smuggling operations, human smuggling and search and rescue with the US Drug Enforcement Agency, US Coast Guard, and Royal Bahamas Police Force (RBPF) in the Caribbean Islands AOR.

Soon after, Clint successfully graduated from the John F Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School as a Special Forces Weapons Sergeant, and was awarded his Green Beret; he was assigned to an Operational Detachment-Alpha. He deployed for operations in SOCSOUTH in support of Operation Joint Task Force-Bravo (JTF-B) with 20th Special Forces Group. Upon returning to active duty, Clint was assigned to USAJFKSWCS as a SF qualification course Instructor. There he mentored and instructed future Special Forces soldiers. His follow on assignment would be with an Operational Detachment-Alpha in 3rd Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group and his duty positions included Junior and Senior Weapons Sergeant, and Special Forces company assistant operations sergeant. Clint deployed to numerous states and military installations within the Continental United States, twenty-two countries in Central America, Caribbean, Europe, Africa, Asia and operations in the Middle East. Clint supervised pre-deployment site surveys teams, advanced party teams, Joint Combined Exchange Training, medical missions, US Embassy Liaison, Personal Security Detail (PSD) and Joint Special Operations training. He worked directly with Foreign Government, Military & Law-Enforcement Officials in support of national interests and combat operations.

Once again due to his achievements, Clint was selected to instruct as the Primary Subject Matter Expert (SME) for the United States Asymmetric Warfare Groups- Combat Applications Training Course (CATC) for Marksmanship Strategies and Standards; and he was responsible for training Senior Leaders, Drill Instructors, NCOA and Deploying FORCOM units in Close Quarters Marksmanship (CQM) & Close Quarters Battle (CQB) Techniques. He was then called upon to become a Weapons Acquisition Branch NCOIC, who gave critical insight into the development and integration of materiel efforts for legacy and revolutionary weapon systems for the US Army. His area of knowledge focused on all weapons: 9mm, 5.56, 7.62, .50 cal and 40mm high and low velocity rounds.

Clint is also a master of all levels of Combat Marksmanship. His skills include: Training beginner, intermediate and advanced tactical shooting, Security, Survival, Unconventional Warfare concepts, Direct Action, Counter-Terrorism. Clint has developed a training methodology that is safe, effective and combat relevant, and encourages a continuous thought process. He is highly capable of training others how to maintain safety at all times at a realistic level for the student skill set and experience, as well as giving courses covering several categories, which cover individual, collective, on line and standards.

After retiring from the military in 2012, Clint formed Black Skull Tactical Applications. Derived from Outcome Based Training and Education application of divergent strategies, tactics, capabilities, and approaches are used to circumvent or negate an opponent’s strengths, while exploiting their weaknesses. Clint’s training programs revolve around 25 years of military training and a Special Operations background.

Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts, DCS will not be exhibiting at the IWA Show this year. To meet with Clint, send an e-mail request to info@a-tacs.com and he will make sure to stop by for a visit. Join us in welcoming Clint to the team.

Beez Combat Systems – Triple AK Shingle

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

New from Beez Combat Systems, the BCS AK47 triple magazine shingle is designed to carry three 30 round AK47 magazines. The open top 3 mag AK47 shingle can be mounted to any PALS compatible vest or plate carrier. The shingle has some unique features not found on other AK shingles.

The back of the triple mag shingle has four rows of PALS webbing for attachment. The shingle can be attached with MALICE clips, Speed clips and other clip systems on the market.

In order to to reduce weight, keep it low profile and provide a distinctly different shingle to the market, BCS angled the corners of both the top and bottom to give it a unique look. The AK mags fit in the shingle perfectly in both direction because of the curve of the mag.
The internal pouch provides additional storage for small items and increases the carrying capacity. The pouch is secured with 2” Velcro across the entire length of the pouch.
