Blue Force Gear – Tourniquet Now! Pouch

Monday, August 13th, 2018

SAVANNAH, GA-June 27, 2018- Blue Force Gear® announced the debut of the Tourniquet Now!™ Pouch to its growing line of medical accessories, each designed with focus on mission-critical essentials, including IFAK carriers and medical item storage, all while remaining versatile and lightweight.

“While working with some of the top tier medical professionals,” said Stephen Hilliard, Director of Product Development, “we found that they are dialed in on the effects of UV degradation on tourniquets. We wanted to make a quick access TQ pouch that offers more environmental protection than our standard TNS Strap

Performance and Usability

The Tourniquet Now!™ Pouch is the perfect balance between speed and protection in a platform that allows you to add a tourniquet to your everyday carry. The Tourniquet Now!™ Pouch gives you superior protection yet quick access to your tourniquets. In line with our other medical equipment such as the Trauma Kit NOW!™ and the Micro TKN™ – the Tourniquet Now!™ Pouch can be accessed with one hand – simply pull the tab down and remove the tourniquet.

Previously you had to decide between overbuilt flapped or zippered pouches, hard ‘open top’ pouches, or having your tourniquet exposed with rubber bands. The first option can become too complicated or time consuming searching for a zipper pull – time that cannot be afforded when seconds is the difference in survival. Exposed tourniquets will experience faster degradation from UV rays, water, and sand and debris – not to mention the possible failure of the rubber bands holding the tourniquet.

The Tourniquet Now!™ Pouch was designed around the CAT tourniquet but can fit the SOF, RATS, TK4, SWAT-T, or other similar sized tourniquets and serves as a great all-around rapid deploy pouch. The tourniquet fits inside an elastic keeper attached to the lid that is then folded up and secured on the top with a hook and loop field. Lastly a BLIP™ – or Ball Loaded Index Point makes for the perfect ‘pull’ with gloved, wet, or bloody hands. . The ball doesn’t rely on friction; the bones in your fingers positively engage it. BLIP’s form is both easy to pull and impossible to miss. . As with all Blue Force Gear equipment, it is made with excellence in the USA and carries a limited lifetime warranty.

Technical and Colors

MOLLE

The Tourniquet Now!™ Pouch starts with the Helium Whisper® MOLLE attachment system made of ULTRAcomp® – a battle proven, high performance laminate. This creates a small and light yet secure MOLLE attachment for the pouch on any MOLLE war-belt, plate carrier, pack, or any other platform.

BELT

The Belt Mounted Tourniquet Now!™ Pouch allows you to carry a tourniquet on your belt – easily the most effective life saving device. Whether a trip to the mall, the office, or through the woods – a tourniquet should always be with you. The pouch fits on any pants belt or duty belts up to 2” wide.

Dimensions – 2” x 2” x 7”
Weight – 41 grams empty
Colors – Black, Coyote Brown and MultiCam.

Pricing and Availability

The Tourniquet Now!™ Pouch is available now at www.blueforcegear.com/tourniquet-now-pouch

Pricing ranges from $29 to $39 per pouch.

Blue Force Gear Brings It All To The Table At SHOT Show

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

POOLER, GA., Jan. 17, 2018For the last 40 years, SHOT Show has been the benchmark tradeshow for professionals in the shooting sports, hunting and law enforcement industries. Brands from all 50 states and more than 100 countries will gather in just one week at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas from January 23 to 26, 2018. Blue Force Gear®will be in attendance displaying an array of its finest weapon slings and tactical equipment. Its product line and experts can be found at booth number 31209 at this year’s show.

“We are excited to highlight our product lineup and really show people that Blue Force Gear offers the best of the best products on the market,” said Ashley Burnsed, CEO of Blue Force Gear. “We have a packed schedule with demos, Q&A’s and more, and we’re looking forward to showing everyone our next generation of gear.”

Marquee products, which will be showcased at SHOT Show, include the Vickers Sling, ULTRAcomp® Pocket Holsters, Micro Trauma Kit Now! (Micro TKN!), and the MARCO™ marking stick dispenser now featuring additional colors.

Blue Force Gear is best known for the patented Vickers Sling™, which was adopted as the standard issue sling for the U.S. Marine Corps in 2011 and is now used by 375,000 service members worldwide. Blue Force Gear is also revolutionizing tactical load carriage equipment to make it lighter and stronger through proprietary design technology MOLLEminus™ and ULTRAcomp®.

Blue Force Gear’s proprietary high performance laminate, ULTRAcomp®, far exceeds the military standard air textured nylon in tear and abrasion resistance. Its hydrophobic features allow products to stay dry and light, whereas air textured nylon retains water and gets even heavier when wet. MOLLEminus is a revolutionary load carriage platform that is fully MOLLE compatible while being the lightest on the market. The same way Blue Force Gear made the lightest MOLLE pouch attachment system with one-piece Helium Whisper backers, MOLLEminus™ is a MOLLE compatible platform constructed out of one piece of ULTRAcomp.

Constructed with the ULTRAcomp technology, the Blue Force Gear ULTRAcomp® Pocket Holster is the company’s first foray into the everyday carry (EDC) market. The new EDC pocket holster removes extra bulk while solidly securing and concealing a pocket pistol, creating the thinnest pocket holster available today.

Making major headway in the medical category, the Micro TKN! was recently recognized as the 2018 “Accessory of the Year in Shooting Illustrated’s Golden Bullseye Awards. The Micro TKN! addresses the subject of Individual First-Aid Kits as an important and life-saving component to your Everyday Carry.

In late 2017, Blue Force Gear launched the widely anticipated MARCO marking stick dispenser, a more efficient, effective and compact way to carry marking sticks. The dispenser design makes it simple for users – simply open the Mylar® package with the pre-loaded dispenser, insert the MARCO dispenser inside of the belt or MOLLE pouch and proceed with the mission. The design provides a low profile and prevents the accidental activation of a marking stick.

SHOT Show is owned by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, and is restricted to the shooting, hunting and outdoor trade professionals and commercial buyers and sellers of military, law enforcement and tactical products and services. The SHOT Show is not open to the general consuming public, and proof of professional affiliation is required.

Due to an uptick in demand, Blue Force Gear has decided to release its much anticipated E-Tool Carrier early for military unit sales. The demand stems from a shift in TTPs at the highest levels. Expected to start shipping 1st quarter of 2018, the pouch is 30% lighter than the issued carrier and adds reinforcement areas for those who like to put a razor edge on the blade for use as a CQB weapon.

Blue Force Gear’s Lightest Sling EVER

Friday, December 15th, 2017

Blue Force Gear has released a specialty sling for the holidays, the ULTRA-Lightweight Vickers One Sling. This new sling is a limited quantity release and is available until sold out. MSRP is $49.

9A224EF9-D1D6-402D-8704-E660962A4717

The Vickers Ultra-Lightweight One Sling was originally spec-ed out by Blue Force Gear’s CEO as part of a project to build the lightest possible, but still fully battle-capable AR Carbine. Every component of the sling and rifle, featured in Vickers Guide AR15 Volume II, was selected to provide the best possible functionality in the lightest conceivable package.

Blue Force Gear started with their Vickers One webbing and hardware which is 20% lighter than their Standard Vickers Sling. Then they added a 1” ULoop sling attachment point is sewn to the front allowing the Sling to be silently attached to nearly any eyelet, cooling vent, modular rail, or sling loop without the need for additional mounting hardware.

To further reduce weight, the Sling uses a unique method of attachment to the buttstock where a simple, folded over tab is pushed through the Sling webbing slot on the buttstock locking it securely in place. A spare Tri-Glide buckle is included to allow for other attachment methods or to completely lock the tab in place.

So lighten your sleigh this Chrismas with Blue Force Gear’s lightest sing EVER. Purchase here.
