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.

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.


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.
