Blue Force Gear took all the feedback from beta testing and customers of the original PLATEminus to create the updated PLATEminus V2. The PLATE 2 includes the two most requested features of the original PLATE: side plate pockets and a cummerbund.

The side plates are fully enclosed with a unique and effective double fold. The front of the side plate pockets are MOLLE compatible for attaching additional pouches.

The cummerbund is fully adjustable and features Ten-Speed elastic. The length is adjustable by the back panel and side plate pockets. PLATE 2 ships with a standard 2-cell cummerbund which works with chest sizes 38″-45″, but can also be combined with the LMAC Side Closures for smaller or larger sizes.

SHOT Show – Blue Force Gear Introduces New Point of Purchase Displays

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

For manufacturers and retailers alike, Point of Sale Displays are extremely important. For the manufacturer it is the best way to represents themselves on a retail sales floor. For the retailer, the display should help showcase the product. I think Blue Force Gear has done a great job with this new launch, unveiled at SHOT Show.


The displays at the top can be changed and according to BFG they plan to support this capability with regular updates that will catch the customer’s eye as well as inform.


In addition to a very neat layout, there’s something else special about this display that won’t dawn on many right off the bat.


These blue guns are the best part of this new display. It can be difficult to visualize how many slings work. Generally, the customer will wonder if it’s long enough, how it will connect to the rifle, etc. With embedded QD points and Picatinny rail sections, these blue guns are an inexpensive way to provide some hands on time and show a customer how to configure the sling on the rifle.

Each display comes with one blue gun. Contact for details about this new program.

Blue Force Gear Licenses Helium Whisper to The Safariland Group

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

Very interesting news from Blue Force Gear. I noticed Safariland has been adopting the new webbingless MOLLE technology.

LAS VEGAS, NV—January 17, 2014—Blue Force Gear® announced today that they have reached an agreement with The Safariland Group to license their Helium Whisper™ technology for U.S. domestic manufacture as part of PROTECH® Tactical, an armor brand of The Safariland Group. The Safariland Group is the largest company to receive licensing rights for Helium Whisper and will use the Patent pending technology to enhance products they provide to law enforcement markets.

“The Safariland Group shares our passion for helping the good guys to make it home safe,” said Ashley Burnsed, founder and CEO of Blue Force Gear. “We are extremely happy to work with them.”

Combining PROTECH Tactical’s cutting edge armor with lighter modular pouches allows officers to respond to emerging threats with speed and agility.

“The Safariland Group has a reputation for offering innovative and exciting products to the law enforcement market,” said Glenn Katz, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for The Safariland Group. “We are excited to bring this excellent product line to a wider audience through this distribution and licensing agreement with Blue Force Gear.”

Helium Whisper allows modular pouch backs to be constructed from a single piece of high-performance laminate versus the multiple straps and snaps of older attachment systems. This amazing breakthrough increases strength and durability of pouches while eliminating failure points and reducing weight by up to 60 percent. Helium Whisper has a proven track record with elite U.S. Special Operations Forces.
