FirstSpear Friday Focus – Hill People Gear Aston House Pack

Friday, May 27th, 2016

Every once in awhile during the FirstSpear Friday Focus, they like to concentrate in their OEM partners. This time, it’s Hill People Gear and the Aston House Pack. The name of the pack has a rather interesting history. Also known as ‘Station 12’ Aston House was the development lab for World War Two’s British Special Operations Executive. Although the pack has a great historical name as inspiration, it is fully modern, making use of FirstSpear’s 6/12 technology.

According the HPG, the overall size is 11″x8″x21″ with two compartments and a removable compression pocket/panel.

Removable load compartment
This is a 4″ deep compartment that can be accessed via zippers at both the top and bottom of the pack. It is meant for the heavier elements of your load. Additional features include:
-Slick interior to make removal of load cells (such as AstonInsert, Palspocket, Tarapocket, etc.) quick and easy.
-Dual hypalon load hangers at the top, one on each side of the compartment
-Top and bottom compression straps have two different tab sets they can be attached to for a standard or extra wide strap placement. Extra wide is meant to clear anything you might want to carry in the removable load compartment that needs to stick out of the top of the pack.
-The outer sides of this compartment have First Spear 6/12 slot pockets with a 2 channel PALS grid cut into them.
-There is a plastic insert between this compartment and the next to help support load elements suspended from the hypalon load hangers.

Organizer compartment

This is a contoured 4″ deep compartment that is accessed via a generous zippered panel. It includes:
-Fully lined with 6/12 PALS cut fabric, velcro loop side out. This lets you use either PALS or velcro backed pouches to organize this pocket.
-Hypalon load hanger array at the top
-Aston Pocket

This is a removable compression pocket / panel that comes with the pack. It has the following features:
-Full zipper panel access
-3 vertically stacked slot pockets on inner surface
-Single mesh pocket on rear surface
-Scalloped hypalon load control detail that terminate in compression strap attachment slots
-External loop cord attachment points

FirstSpear Friday Focus – Exigent Circumstance Pack

Friday, May 6th, 2016


For this week’s Friday Focus, we’re taking a look at the Exigent Circumstance Pack. The Exigent Circumstance Pack, or ECP, is an assault pack that can be quickly attached to a vest or worn in stand-alone mode, either as a backpack or single-strap bag. The ECP features a removable beavertail flap, which secures with shock cord and provides enough space to hold a helmet, or a positive air breathing system such as the CV420. The pocket within the exterior flap is sized to hold the Avon M53 Series Protective Mask, and features an elastic daisy chain for flash-bang or smoke grenades. Additionally, the rear-most pocket will hold a 3 liter hydration reservoir or the included comfort pad. – Exigent Circumstance Pack
