Agilite – AMAP 30

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

D30B86BC-04EE-4099-A842-C70B29B95535

The AMAP 30 is a unique 30 liter assault pack for longer missions. It attaches either directly to an Agilite K series plate carrier or to the Agilite K Series shoulder straps to become an independent backpack.

When a pack is connected directly to your plate carrier you don’t need rear padding as the pack sits on your rear plate, rather than your back. For this reason, the AMAP 30 was designed so that when worn over a plate carrier, its rear padding rolls down and stows inside the lower back padding and becomes a lumbar support. This brings your pack closer to your back and creates a lower back support below the plate carrier for a whole new level of modularity and comfort.

The exterior of the pack features an expandable helmet carrier and a rifle attachment system as well as covert lower connecting straps for sleeping bags, outdoor mats and other larger items. The top of the pack has both a lift handle and a drag handle as well as dual exit ports for hydration/comms tubes and a zip pocket.

The inside features a zipped mesh pocket, a long with a pocket which can be used for hydration reservoir, ballisitc plate, or laptop sleeve.

The AMAP 30 is made in Israel and ships worldwide.

Agilite -Raptor Helmet Cover

Friday, July 7th, 2017

The Raptor™ helmet cover has several unique features such as a goggles cover attachment system, a built in counterweight pouch and an accessory tether point.

The Raptor has two different optional goggles covers, the Visor™ and the Visor Nocturn™ (with NVG shroud access hole) that also serve as goggles cases when detached from the helmet.

The Raptor is available in Multicam and Ranger Green and comes in two different sizing systems for the Ops Core Ballistic XP and Ops Core Bump helmets respectively, as they have different geometry and sizing systems. The exact sizing ensures a perfect fit.

SPARTANAT – Gear Made in Israel – Agilite. “Our experiences come from the battlefield“

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

The Israeli army is considered one of the best in the world. No wonder, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) must defend a country that is surrounded by enemies in the truest sense of the word. At the same time, Israel has a creative defense industry. In the gear sector, AGILITE is one of the most outstanding companies. We talked with Eric, who is the international salesman for Agilite and was a member of the maritime SOF unit Shayatet 13, about the “Israeli way of gear”.

Agilite1

SPARTANAT: Eric, where does Agilite come from and when did you start it?

AGILITE: Agilite is an Israeli company that uses experience from IDF units to make clever and more creative solutions to make tactical gear more ergonomic. It was founded in 2006 in Tel Aviv, Israel and is a supplier to both the Israel Defense Forces and Forces worldwide.

SPARTANAT: IDF is an army with a lot of experiences. Is there a specific Israeli way of gear?

AGILITE: Yes, The IDF was founded under fire and often had to get by with whatever bad gear they could get hold of and just make it work. Right from the start, adapting the gear to make it work better was a part of the military culture. Soldiers had to get creative to make their equipment work well enough because being too heavy or not being able to move fast enough could cost you your life.
SF units and even regular infantry battalions all set up their own in-house gear studios to adapt or design their equipment from scratch to make it work well. They say “Necessity is the mother of invention” and when there’s a direct link between soldiers coming back from nightly missions and gear designers within their units gear can be refined and refined until it’s optimal for combat. This lead to a very different gear culture to other countries.

Agilite was founded to take this clever, creative, experience-based approach to gear design and combine it with professional manufacturing and to take it worldwide to other allied forces who can benefit from this mindset and gear that works with the body, not against it.

It’s gear ideas and experience going from the battlefield to the manufacturer, not the other way around like in many places.
As time goes on, weapons, enemy tactics and types of threats change but our soldiers’ bodies remain constant so gear has to adapt to keep operators light on their feet and agile.

SPARTANAT: What’s your favorite Agilite product?

AGILITE: My favorite Agilite product is the Axis knee pad, a product that fixed the IDF’s problem of knee pads that fall down. Axis are now the standard issue knee pad for the entire Israeli military and they are outstanding. Every operator knows what it’s like to have to pull your knee pads up from your ankles non-stop and with Axis you don’t have to do that. You put them on and forget about them. They are also great because they are very well priced to be relevant to all soldiers not just SF which is rare.

Personally I also love them because they grip wet surfaces, do not slip on boats and also don’t absorb water. which is important in naval operations. Some people are bothered by their physical appearance but anyone who tries them is instantly hooked.

SPARTANAT: Where is Agilite also in use beside Israel?

AGILITE: Agilite equipment is in use in over thirty countries and in some of the world’s most elite special forces units. Many top tier units operate in Middle Eastern combat terrain and climates very similar to ours and so our gear is very well received. We also do a lot of custom gear that is unit-specific but obviously not all of this is for public knowledge.

Eric M is head of International sales for Agilite. He spent 5 years as an operator in Shayetet 13, Israel’s Tier 1 Naval Special Warfare Unit. Contact: eric@agilitegear.com

The IDF’s New “Robocop” Knee Pads

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

Agilite Axis™ knee pads selected as new standard issue knee pads for all combat troops.

Holon, Israel, 7th March 2017-The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has announced the selection of Agilite’s Axis™ tactical knee pads for standard issue to all IDF combat troops from March 2017 onwards.

A 2017 adaptation of an old industrial design, Axis’s primary advantage is that unlike regular knee pads, they do not fall down. Whilst rather unusual in appearance (they are nicknamed “Robocop Knee Pads” in Israel), they outperformed every other type of knee pads in extensive IDF trials that spanned several months.

Agilite worked with IDF SF units to perfect the design which provides over 180 degrees of polymer, hard protection as well as internal closed-cell memory foam for comfort even over extended periods. They are also exceptionally light, weighing in at just 9oz (255g).
“Anyone who has spent five minutes in the military knows that with regular knee pads you spend all your time picking them up from your ankles. You put Axis on your knees and forget about them,” said Eric M, a five year veteran of Israel’s Navy SEALS (Shayetet 13) and Head of International sales at Agilite. “The look of them takes some getting used to but they outperform every other tactical knee pad by miles” said Marks. They are also preferential over internal pant knee pads as they provide exponentially more protection, surface coverage and comfort.

The IDF was looking for a new knee pad with increased durability and performance that does not fall down in order to increase combat awareness and the Agilite Axis was selected after an extended period in IDF SOF.

Agilite is now beginning trials of the Axis knee pads in SOF groups across Europe and North America.

Axis are available in Ranger Green, Flat Dark Earth (FDE) and Black from www.agilitegear.com or authorized Agilite dealers and retail at just $32.90.
