Kyle Defoor Joins Team MultiCam

Monday, June 15th, 2015

We received this unanticipated announcement from Crye Precision regarding our friend Kyle Defoor who is joining Team MultiCam. This is obviously a big deal for Kyle who has been working hard at his training business but it’s also major news from the MultiCam brand because it indicates an expansion into additional shooting sports sponsored athletes.

  
We cannot be more thrilled to announce that Kyle Defoor is officially on Team MultiCam. He has been a long time friend and it only made sense to cement the relationship. Kyle is one of the premiere firearms instructors for military, law enforcement, and civilians specializing in pistol, carbine, sniper and CQB. The bulk of his expertise was honed during his military service as a special operations member. Kyle exemplifies professionalism both as a shooter and as an instructor. Though the majority of his training instruction is done with the military, his open enrollment classes are focused on building a student’s base knowledge with a firearm and taking them to the next level. Kyle not only believes in improving a shooter’s accuracy, but also their mindset. Kyle is also a very accomplished climber, ultra runner and he’s passionate about motorcycles and the outdoors.

Congrats to all involved! Maybe now we can see you update that camo, Kyle!

Australian Army Fields Crye Precision AirFrame Helmets

Monday, May 11th, 2015

The Australian Army tecently issued over 4,000 Crye Precision AirFrames to Tier 2 combatants in 1 Brigade. That alone is pretty big news.
  
Now here is where it gets interesting. Apparently, the procurement guys ordered, then cancelled, Crye helmet covers in AMCU. Looking at this photo it seems that someone local has made up some AMCU covers.

The tender for the remainder of the helmets (approximately 14,000 for both Tier 2 & 3) is being evaluated at the moment.

Crye Precision – Three New Products

Thursday, May 7th, 2015

Crye Precision has launched three new products which are now available on their webpage: the JPC 2.0, Loft Jacket, and LWF Jacket.

JPC 2.0

JPC 2 1

The latest iteration of Crye’s Jumpable Plate Carrier, the JPC 2.0 is a lightweight and minimal armor vest designed to maximize mobility and packability, while reducing as much weight as possible. The unloaded carrier weighs just over 1 lbs., and is highly configurable. The JPC 2.0 features the Skeletal Cummerbund system with Crye’s Integrated Attachment System which allows for pouches to be mounted to both the inside and outside of the cummerbund. Additionally, the JPC 2.0 is compatible with all AVS Detachable Flap systems.

Features

  • Easy 2-step emergency doffing capability
  • Hidden vertical webbing loops on front carrier supports detachable chest rigs
  • High performance stretch material that allows for plates of varying thickness VELCRO® brand panel on the front of the carrier allows detachable MOLLE or mag pouch front flap
  • Zippers along the sides of the back carrier for zip-on panels
  • Low-profile cummerbund attachment that provides maximum adjustability and allows for chest expansion as needed
  • Webbing loops on the back of the shoulder straps to support back panels
  • Drag handle that supports up to 400 lbs.
  • Colors: Black, Coyote, MultiCam, Ranger Green

    Loft Jacket

    Loft Jacket 1

    The Loft Jacket is a midweight jacket that functions equally well as an outer garment and an insulation layer. The outer layer is treated with Nano STX which sheds moisture and snow. The Loft Jacket features an athletic fit for use under shells, so those looking for a looser fit should order one size up.

    Features

  • Helmet-sized single layer hood stows in collar
  • Stretch cuffs with integrated thumb loops
  • Jacket stows into built-in pocket forming a handy pillow
  • Two exterior zip pockets and three large interior zip pockets
  • Breathable stretch fleece side panels

  • ClimaShield® insulation for extreme performance and packability
  • Colors: Black, MultiCam, Ranger Green

    LWF Jacket

    LWF Jacket 1

    The LWF Jacket is a lightweight jacket that functions equally well as a standalone jacket or as breathable insulation under a shell. Made from a single layer of custom fllece fabric, it features a “slick” outer surface which sheds water and dirt better than typical fleece. The LWF Jacket features an athletic fit for layering, so those looking for a looser fit should order one size up.

    Features

  • Zip closure hand pockets
  • Interior chest pocket
  • Integrated thumb loop
  • Hem draw cord
  • Breathable mid-weight stretch fleece material
  • Tailored for extreme mobility without binding

    The CP Six12 Video that Played During SHOT Show

    Saturday, February 14th, 2015

    If you visited the Crye Precision booth at SHOT Show you saw this video featuring the Six12 Rotary shotgun playing on the monitor. It gives a great overview of the different configurations and answers the question everyone keeps asking me, “Does it work?”

    Admittedly, my favorite part is the theme music. Who doesn’t love Peer Gynt?

    SHOT Show – Crye Precision Shows Us What’s In Store For 2015

    Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

    In years past, Crye Precision has used SHOT Show to unveil a whole host of new technologies. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, those products don’t always make it mass market that same year. This has not frustrated not only customers but Crye as well. So this year, there won’t be as many new products on public display.

    AVS 1000 Pack
    First off, Crye Precision has a pack designed for use with the AVS. It can be used as a stand-alone or attached to a platform via PALS or you can use it as a plate bag.

    The padding on the back of the pack can be removed via Velcro.

    JPC 2.0
    Lighter than the first model, the new JPC 2.0 has stretchier plate bags in order to accommodate a wider range of armor plates.

    IMG_1273.JPG

    It incorporates a new release mechanism and has four different front flap options compatible with AVS.

    There are also pull handles at the cummerbund.

    Hitcoat Shoulders and Yoke
    Last year, CP released the Hitcoat.

    IMG_1277.JPG

    This year, they’ve introduced the Hitcoat Shoulders and Yoke, a single size armor system (vice the Hitcoat’s 5 sizes) which offers simple to doff protection for the upper arms and shoulders.

    SIX12
    The SIX12 has received a little bit of a facelift.

    IMG_1280.JPG

    The barrel and cylinders are now Titanium and there is a QD mount.

    IMG_1279.JPG

    They’ve added a Remington choke to the 22″ barrel Bullpup model.

    As always, Crye Precision continues to innovate and concentrate on the customer. There is lots going on and some of those items you will see later this year.
