FirstSpear Friday Focus – Tactical Hand-Warmer

Friday, October 17th, 2014

It’s already cold many places in America so it’s about time we show you FirstSpear’s Tactical Hand-Warmer. It’s is one of those things you wish you’d had with you, when you don’t. The Tactical Hand-Warmer is essentially a fleece lined tube that can be attached several ways to you and your kit to keep it handy.

It can be attached directly to your platform or worn on its own with a strap that stows inside of itself.

The cuffs allow you to tighten it around your wrists or to close it up if you are storing something you need to keep warm such as NODs.

Additionally, it incorporates a built-in stuff sack so you can stow it away when not needed. Finally, it features pockets to hold hand warmers or other essential items.

Pointblank (Protective Products Enterprises) has a guest in their booth. FirstSpear and Pointblank have entered into an exclusive agreement where FS is only offering PPE armor products in their vests including the new FBI package.

There’s been a lot of interest here at AUSA in the NOC, a low profile soft armorer solution we wrote about earlier this year. The NOC is scalable and offers up to 36 sizes with interchangeable front and rear panels as well as cummerbunds. Interestingly, FS has found that they can fit the 5th – 95th percentile wearer with as few as 9 sizes.

FirstSpear Friday Focus – Short Incursion Chest Rig 6/12

Friday, October 10th, 2014

Back in 2011 we discussed the FirstSpear Short Incursion Chest Rig or SICR when it first debuted as a MOLLE compatible product. In this week’s Friday Focus, we’ll show you the updated version that incorporates 6/12 technology as well as a kangaroo-style pouch on the body side which also allows the user to access the inside of both 6/12 panels. The laser cut details make it even more lightweight than the original and yet it still accepts PALS equipped pouches.

In teh gallery below you can see several features including the low-profile, cross over shoulder straps, G-hook attachment for the waist strap and kangaroo-style opening into the SICR.

Available in Ranger Green, Coyote, MultiCam and Black.

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

IMG_1788

Each week we focus on a different FirstSpear product and I’ve been wanting to share the R37 Rifle Wrap but we needed the right combination of photos and video to really show you what was up with it. Looks like the AV club at FS really came through this time.

riflewrap_IMG_1927

It does so much; shooting mat, weapons case, drag bag.

r37_IMG_1838

Its exterior incorporates attachment points for 3D camouflage to aid in signature disruption and a reinforced webbing attachment point for drag and haul straps located at the forward taper of the wraps exterior.

IMG_1857

The R37 can be transported by the FS 2” Standard Break-Away Sling, ECP Shoulder Straps or our Padded Speed Bag Shoulder Straps.

The Rifle Wrap can transport long-guns or carbines with a simple folding procedure.

When laid out flat the R37 is a comfortable pad to shoot from and two 6/12 pocket attachment fields provide area for optional pockets to store Binos, Wind Gauges and other essential items of target engagement.

The FirstSpear Exigent Circumstance Pack can be attached to the outside of the Rifle Wrap to give you some sustainment capability.

carryhandleIMG_1923

There are a lot of cool features in this design but the Tubes on the handles make it very adaptable for different weapons because you can alter the balance point. In addition to the different length configurations, you need to know that it is sized to fit into a variety of hard sided weapons storage cases. The ECP can also be attached to the exterior of the R37 during transport (ideally when your wearing the R37 as a backpack.)

Offered in Black, Coyote, ranger Green and MultiCam.

Now for the special offer. When you buy the R37 Rifle Wrap this weekend FS will ship it with a free Blast Mat (Black or Coyote) which attaches directly to the wide end of the R37 Rifle Wrap and is designed to take the brunt of muzzle blast and keep dust and debris from flying up. The corners can be weighted down to keep it in place. No code necessary.

FirstSpear Friday Focus – The Slick

Friday, September 26th, 2014

IMG_7651.JPG

The Slick is an Ultra Lightweight Plate Carrier designed to be worn beneath over garments such as jackets or even Tommy Bahama shirts as well as other kit. FirstSpear has just updated the carrier by transitioning the fabric to Tweave Durastretch 520E which is a durable four-way stretch. It’s quiet and comfortable. FirstSpear also updated the cummerbund.

IMG_7652.JPG

Cut to fit either “Swimmer” or SPEAR cut ballistic plates, it is a simple design with no integral load carriage capacity and not really appropriate as an outervest. However, the 520E is more than up tot the task. Shoulder straps are adjustable overlapping flaps and secured via Velcro.

Offered in Coyote, order by plate type and size.

Fightstrap1

The Fight Strap is the bandoleer you always wanted. This isn’t some cheapo, disposable envelope for your ammo. Instead, it’s a purpose built means to keep all of your magazines organized. The original models accommodate 5 magazines of 30-round 5.56, 20-round 7.62 NATO or 30-round 7.62 x 39.
