PROTECH Tactical Releases Fast Attack Vest Now with FirstSpear Closure System

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016

Fast attack high-speed platform with cutting-edge closure system debuts for the first responder, patrol and tactical markets

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Safariland, a recognized leader in the armor industry, today announced the release of the PROTECH® Tactical Fast Attack Vest outfitted with the FirstSpear® Tubes™ Closure System for the first responder, law enforcement and tactical markets.

FirstSpear Tubes enhance the ease of donning and doffing the Fast Attack Vest with a quick up or down single-hand function. The easy motion for attaching or detaching the system leverages the user’s muscle memory, ideal for stressful or high-speed scenarios. FirstSpear Tubes ensure the cummerbund of the garment is always positioned in the same location, which is vital for proper ballistic overlap to mitigate the risk of misalignment and incorrect attachment.

“Our partnership with FirstSpear granted the opportunity to incorporate cutting-edge Tubes technology into some of our most trusted tactical platforms,” said Todd Mackler, vice president of Safariland Armor. “By redesigning high-speed platforms, such as the Fast Attack Vest, and offering the Tubes closure variant, we’re able to further accommodate the market demand for lightweight, high-performing, rapid-release closure systems.”

Following the release of the Shift 360™ with Tubes closure, the Fast Attack Vest with FirstSpear Tubes is the second of three tactical platforms to be introduced with the closure system configuration this fall. Capitalizing on the innovative integration of the most sought-after tactical platforms and closure system technologies currently available, the Fast Attack Vest with Tubes closure was developed under the continuing partnership between Safariland and FirstSpear, LLC.

This Fast Attack Vest typifies the purpose of high-speed platforms with design features chosen specifically for user comfort, maneuverability and custom configurations, including:
Advanced Webless System (AWS) load-bearing platform to reduce overall carrier weight by approximately 30 percent without sacrificing durability, plus optional equipment/pouch configurability.

Full ballistic panel array consisting of front, back, side and shoulder with a multitude of ballistic packages from the Safariland Armor product line, including the Hardwire® vest, the lightest Type II and Type IIIA body armor in the world from Hardwire, LLC.
Optional accessories such as ballistic collar, ballistic throat, structured upper arms, lower abdomen/spine protector, and groin protector for additional ballistic coverage.

Compatibility with hard armor plates for stand-alone or in-conjunction-with protection in 8” x 10” or 10” x 12” rectangle, shooters and swimmers cut and Medium SAPI.

The Fast Attack AWS FST is available in an a-la-carte ordering system for teams and individuals to configure their fighting system for their specific needs. Also offered is an array of ballistic and non-ballistic accessories, tactical pouches and identification patches. It is also available for ordering with Type II and Type IIIA ballistic packages as well as color options based on the AWS load-bearing material.

Currently offered in the Advanced Webless System, the Fast Attack Vest will soon be available with FirstSpear 6/12™ (6/12) load-bearing material. This state-of-the-art material eliminates excess yards of bulk nylon, snaps and polymer stiffener for an overall system weight reduction. Additionally, 6/12 load-bearing material provides increased fabric flexibility and a clean silhouette that aids in enhanced signature management and mobility.

A Traditional Modular Webbing (TMW) Fast Attack Vest model will be available in the near future, while another carrier is anticipated for a late November release to address needs of officers and first responders in the most demanding environments.

FirstSpear Friday Focus – 1911 Magazine Base Pad

Friday, November 4th, 2016

This week’s Friday Focus covers something completely different from FirstSpear. If you haven’t figured it out yet, FirstSpear loves the M1911A1. They’ve introduced this FirstSpear 1911 Magazine Base Pad and Chip McCormick 1911 Magazine combo. That’s right; the base pad comes installed on a Chip McCormick magazine.

It’s made from Aluminum and gives the base pad a little weight so magazines will free fall easily during a speed reload. The pad also features a hard anodized finish. Additionally, there are grips enhancements on bottom of the base pad to assist in firmly locking the magazine in place and the toe of Base Pad is dished out to aid in removal of a difficult magazine.

You’ll notice that the middle groove is quite pronounced. This accommodates the FirstSpear bungee cord speed tab.

Currently available for 1911 series pistols, look for more models to follow.

This pocket allows the Shooter to comfortably transport five 30 round 5.56 magazines and one pistol magazine. This pocket is available with the Speed Reload / Pistol Pocket arranged on the Shooters Left or Right.

FirstSpear Friday Focus – Line One Belts Now Available in Rich Mohagony

Friday, October 21st, 2016

The Line Belt from FirstSpear has been around for several years, but they’ve just introduced a new color, Rich Mohogany to blend in with more wardrobes.

Borrowing its name from an old NSW term for first level of clothing or gear, the Line One Belt has amazing tactical performance that maintains the high level of comfort and mobility usually associated with leather. Made from BioThane, a Urethane covered Nylon, which provides superior strength and weather-resistance, this belt won’t crack, peel, or become stiff in frigid temperatures. Specially tempered, non-slip coating eliminates “break-in” time and allows for flex like leather, yet it is impervious to sweat and water and will not stretch or lose its original shape.

Naturally, they are also still available in Coyote and Black, all with the new Cerakote buckle.
