FirstSpear Friday Focus – The Slick

Friday, September 26th, 2014


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.


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.

FirstSpear Friday Focus – New Fight Straps for Subguns

Friday, September 12th, 2014


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.

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.
