The Revolver Rig comes into its own when flexibility and efficiency are paramount, and will excel in improvised rescues, compact mechanical advantage systems and reducing friction in rigging featuring running ropes.  The system is both lightweight and compact.

The system is perfect for lowering and raising scenarios.  Moving equipment such as weapon systems and ammunition in mountainous or urban environments becomes far easier with our system.

It is available with both single and double sheaves that run on high efficiency bearings; this allows Revolver Rigs to be joined together to create simple, light and efficient pulley hauling systems with a 4 or 5:1 ratio.

The back uses our horned design to stop connected items rotating around the carabiner to create dangerous cross loads.

• Available in Screwgate, Kwiklock and Locksafe variants.

• Single body design with integrated pulley and attachment becket

• Full cross-section top bar for excellent wear resistance

• Spine design minimises the chances of connected devices moving into cross-loading orientations

• Clean, taperlock nose increases gate strength in side-loading scenarios

• Tapered shape that ensures ropes seat correctly and consistently on the sheave

High Angle Solutions – Elliot Brown Watches

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

Elliot Brown watches aren’t like other so-called sports watches.

Ian Elliot and Alex Brown share 20+ years of unique watch building knowledge from the world of extreme sports which is how they were able to create the worlds most rugged “tool” watches.

55B4D9C1-23F6-4192-A7A8-EDB39CB92570

Working on the coast and enjoying just about every land and water based coastal sport was the catalyst to develop a range of watches that not only function in extremes but also look great with a suit or uniform.

045A135F-06C0-4511-A2E9-89712562A1FB

This Canford 202-004, like all other Elliot Brown watches has survived at test at 200m in water before being declared fit for use. It features a neat inner timing bezel operated via the upper crown and even when in the our or adjust position, the lower time and date adjust crown is still fully water proof.

The Swiss movement is housed inside a unique steel housing, suspended on a series of elastomer dampers to give immense shock protection. The highly legible dial and hands feature a Superluminova coating that  will glow for up to 8 hours.

The solid and beautifully detailed case back is bolted down for a perfect seal with multiple surfaces to minimize the contact patch with the wrist in warmer conditions.

2.8mm thick hardened and tempered crystal protects the dial with an anti-reflective coating applied to the inner surface and the strao retaing bars are solid screw in items that will stand any test.

This is one mean watch and it’s no surprise Elliot Brown are finding favour amongst many military groups.

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

Three entrepreneurial brothers. One great invention. In 1933, Björn, Alvar and Arvid Kjellström invented the first ever liquid-filled compass, and the Silva began. Not only was it the first compass of its kind, but is also set the global standard for how navigation works.

From this beginning, 85 years ago, Silva have grown significantly.  As part of that expansion they have been making compasses for militaries all over the world for a number of decades.  This has predominantly been based on the Expedition 4, which was due an update.  Following development work with the Royal Marines and other elements of the UK military Silva have now launched an updated range of compasses.

The new range includes a more robust base plate and bezel which address the needs of a challenging operational environment.  It also brings in line a number of interesting technologies including prismatic elements for commanders and global needles for expeditionary forces required to deploy anywhere across the globe.  Included in the package are lanyards with distance measuring scales for 1:25000 and 1:50000.  They also allow measurement in both mils and degrees enabling greater accuracy and the passage of accurate information for fires as well as air.

High Angle Solutions – Armadillo Merino; No Melt – No Drip and So Comfortable

Thursday, February 15th, 2018

Armadillo Merino’s latest next-to-skin gear

Armadillo Merino® focuses on enhancing the critical first layer and they believe that 100% merino wool worn next-to-skin is vital. We are seeing more and more brands blending merino wool with nylon in the market which may be wearable for some sports but nylon has no place in combat zones in your next-to-skin garments. Besides the fact that these synthetic base layers smell when you wear and they melt and drip at the surprising low temperature of 300F.

Your next to skin garment is your last line of defense against extreme heat and flames, so if your situation comes to this, then you require the best protection you can get. Why take the risk with a synthetic blend base layer by adding something that can melt and inflict life changing injuries.

Armadillo Merino® next-to-skin garments will not melt or drip. They have natural flame resistance up to 1100F, and will not melt or drip when exposed to heat. This is a natural and inherent FR barrier and has been very well documented.  The garments don’t smell as they have natural anti-microbial properties. You can wear the Armadillo tops for days on end without odor. No more smelly base layer.
