FirstSpear Friday Focus – Partner Series – Battleware Jump Out Vest

Friday, August 1st, 2014

For a second time, the FirstSpear Friday Focus will concentrate its efforts on educating you about one of their OEM partners; Virginia-based Battleware. We’ll also show you the Jump Out Vest built exclusively for Battleware by FirstSpear.

Why Battleware Started

We created Battleware because of our desire to design and build products that reach beyond the incremental improvements of the status quo. We saw an opportunity to create dramatically new approaches to solving end-user problems. The feedback we’ve gotten from our customers tells us we’re clearly on that course.

Why American Production

The choice to have our products manufactured in the United States was easy. We are absolutely committed to not only defending Americans as they do their jobs down-range, but also to providing opportunity for as many Americans to participate in that process as we can. For us, it’s a matter of pride in our country as well as a duty.

Why FirstSpear

Choosing to partner with FirstSpear was among the easiest of all our decisions as we ramped up Battleware. We’re completely focused on revolutionary change in design and FirstSpear is the clear leader in our market. Game-changing technologies, combined with truly insightful designs born from direct contact with end-users keeps First Spear extremely relevant. Combine all that with a long pedigree of excellence in manufacturing tactical equipment and a shared focus on going beyond the normal incremental improvements most often found in this market and the choice to team with FirstSpear becomes obvious.

FirstSpear Friday Focus – Siege-R Optimized

Friday, July 18th, 2014

Last week, we showed you FirstSpear’s Catalog No 7 for Summer 2014. One of the new items is a revamped version of the Siege-R. This optimized model (Siege-RO) was developed after collecting and analyzing three years worth of user feedback.

They’ve done several things to the design that improve its versatility and performance. For instance, they moved the plate pocket to the inside which offers a more streamlined exterior and allows the use of more plate sizes and shapes.

FS Siege R Enhanced

Additionally, the standard shoulder pads are now padded and fully adjustable, including two sets of Tubes in the front and back to support the enhanced MASS Shoulder System. The front and back plate pockets are now internal to the vest, making the system slimmer and better suited for confined and tubular spaces. The internal cummerbunbd is now removable for those who do not wish to use it all the time, and the exterior cummerbund is now enhanced in the back with the new FS High Performance Elastic Webbing. Finally, their quick drying airflow mesh is now utilized on the interior to reduce overall weight and shed water more quickly.

Available in Black, Coyote, Ranger Green and MultiCam sizes Small – Xlarge.

FirstSpear Friday Focus – Retro-Fit Cummerbund Kit

Friday, May 30th, 2014

There are lots of folks out there who would like to integrate FirstSpear’s Tubes and 6/12 technology into their existing armor carriers. In this week’s Friday Focus we’ll show you a product that does just that; the Retro-Fit Cummerbund Kit.

FS Cummerbund Retrofit Kit - mounted

The 6/12 & TUBES Retro-Fit Kit is compatible with carriers that utilizes a traditional hook & loop flap system and rear MOLLE or cummerbund pass-through channel. The Cummerbund also accepts Soft Armor Inserts and 6×6 Hard Plates. Once in place, you don/doff the vest via the Tubes attachment to either side of the cummerbund. There is also a certain amount of size adjustment to the rear via the elastic cord. In addition to Tubes, you also get 6/12 which is not only backwards compatible with PALS but also accepts FirstSpear’s full line of 6/12 pouches.

Offered in Small/Medium or Large/Extra Large, in Black, Coyote, Khaki, Ranger Green and MultiCam.

FirstSpear is offering Free Domestic Ground + APO/FPO Shipping on your entire cart with purchase of retro-fit cummerbund.
