Blue Force Gear Launches New Belt Fed Loop

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

POOLER, GA., Feb. 28, 2017 – Blue Force Gear®, the designer and manufacturer of the world’s finest weapon slings and tactical equipment, debuts its new Belt Fed Loop™ (BFL) today.


The BFL was designed for belt-fed weapons, and it is expected to have high application in the military because when soldiers regularly turn their weapons into the armory they have to remove the slings. The BFL allows for a quick, easier removal of the sling from the weapons.


“We are always excited to launch new products,” said Ashley Burnsed, CEO of Blue Force Gear. “The new Belt Fed Loop is a game-changer because it allows for a faster removal of the sling from weapons which will improve productivity from users.”

The BFL offers a girth hitching attachment style without having to remove the weapon sling completely from the hardware. This design allows for the same versatility found in the Universal Wire Loop™, except as a quick-detach version. The BFL can be purchased through Blue Force Gear’s website.

Made from aircraft-grade seven strand stainless steel cable, the BFL requires no unthreading or re-threading of the weapon sling required to attach to a firearm. The BFL can also be mounted on the right hand side of AKs for left-handed shooters, plus it is fast to assemble.

Blue Force Gear Offers Free Shipping On ULTRAcomp Pocket Holster Preorders

Friday, February 10th, 2017

POOLER, GA., Feb. 1, 2017 – Following a successful SHOT Show and positive response from attendees regarding its all-new ULTRAcomp Pocket Holster, Blue Force Gear®, the designer and manufacturer of the world’s finest weapon slings and tactical equipment, has announced that it will offer free shipping on all preorders placed now through midnight on March 1. The holsters, which are the thinnest pocket holster available today, are expected to ship beginning on March 1 and orders can be placed online at www.blueforcegear.com/pocket-holster.

Currently, the Blue Force Gear ULTRAcomp Pocket Holster is available to fit the SIG SAUER® P238/938, KIMBER® MICRO, GLOCK® 42, and RUGER® LCP® / LCP2. After resoundingly positive feedback from SHOT Show attendees and Blue Force Gear social media fans about the new holster, the company plans to debut additional models this year, including its GLOCK® 43, Smith & Wesson® J-Frame Revolvers, Taurus™ 738 TCP, M&P® Shield™ and BodyGuard® 380 pocket holsters. These models will be available at a later date in March.

“The amount of excitement we witnessed surrounding our new pocket holster at SHOT Show, as well as on our social media pages, was so impressive that we knew we needed to encourage individuals to preorder this item to avoid selling out,” said Tom Kaleta, Director of Marketing. “Our free shipping promotion is an added incentive for individuals and ensures that they’ll be one of the first to get their hands on our new pocket holster.”

The Blue Force Gear ULTRAcomp Pocket Holster is the company’s first foray into the everyday carry (EDC) market. Designed with Blue Force Gear’s proprietary high-performance laminate called ULTRAcomp®, the new EDC pocket holster exceeds military standard materials in tear and abrasion resistance, while remaining versatile and ultra lightweight for the carrier. ULTRAcomp removes extra bulk while solidly securing and concealing a pocket pistol, creating the thinnest pocket holster available today.

By reducing the weight and bulk over a standard pocket holster, the ULTRAcomp Pocket Holster provides additional comfort to the carrier and protects both the weapon and interior of the pocket. The secure weapon positioning that the holster provides ensures safe and accurate grip and weapon removal from its pocket holster.

SHOT Show 17 – Blue Force Gear Klaux Plate Carrier

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

Blue Force Gear’s new Klaux Plate Carrier is the latest evolution in its PLATEminus Plate Carrier line. The KLAUX sets itself apart from other armor carrier systems currently available by using a patent-pending quick attach buckle. This distinct emergency-release system is built directly into the front attachment points of the vest. This allows the vest to immediately release and can easily be shed when the user pulls the release cable (conveniently hidden beneath the chin protector.)

The KLAUX Plate Carrier also greatly reduces reassembly time. Rather than spending up to 30 minutes for reassembly, most end users can reassemble the KLUAX Plate Carrier in as little as 30 seconds, which means that this carrier can easily be used in training where the user becomes familiar with the exact carrier they will be using in the field.


SHOT Show 17 – Blue Force Gear MARCO Cost Benefit Analysis

Friday, January 20th, 2017

If you use chemlights for marking, you need to consider the new MARCO from Blue Force Gear.

MARCO is essentially a magazine for mini chemlights. The disposable cartridge carries 34 x 2″ chemlights is carried in this Kydex holster. A replacement cartridge is not only about a buck cheaper than the equivalent number of 4″ chemlights, typically used for marking, but you don’t have to take the time to tape them up in order to restrict the amount of light emitted. 

 The smaller 2″ chemlights are not only smaller and lighter, but they alos put out just the right amount of light. What’s more, the hole pattern on the holster will accept all of Raven Concealment’s belt mounting options.

So check out the MARCO and save money, weight, space and time.

Coming this quarter.
