FirstSpear Friday Focus – Meet The Multimag And See More At Warrior East

Friday, July 7th, 2017

FirstSpear is in the business of building advanced lightweight armor platforms and load bearing equipment designed for the professional user. Next week FirstSpear will be displaying their wares in Virginia Beach at ADS Warrior Expo East and will be debuting an all new pocket designed to secure a variety of different magazines. You get the first look at the Multimag pocket today.

I have been sworn to secrecy on the Multimag since last summer. The adjustable dial allows the user to customize tension. It’s great to see it finally coming to market. But please note, the Multimag is not available for order yet. See it, and other FirstSpear products, in person at booth #1408 at Warrior East, July 13 – 14th in Va Beach.


FirstSpear Friday Focus – Wind Cheater In Manatee Grey

Friday, June 30th, 2017

Back in stock in Manatee Grey the all-season FirstSpear Wind Cheater is constructed from an ultra light brushed 330D Ambush that breathes like a t-shirt and still sheds wind and light moisture with a DWR coating. Don’t expect a water proof rain jacket but rather a very light and fast drying garment that works exceptionally well as a layering component or stand alone item you can keep packed away in a small pack or pocket for year round use. Extra large hood with several points of adjustment works great with a hat or bump lid.

Orders over $150 ship with a free 32oz water bottle, seen below.

FirstSpear Friday Focus – Gloves

Friday, June 16th, 2017

Introducing the all new tactical glove line from FirstSpear, the advanced combat system for your hands! Currently available in three distinct styles, the Operator Inner Glove (OIG), Operator Outer Glove (OOG), and Operator Contact Glove (OCG). The entire line was designed three dimensionally to ensure an incredible fit with maximum dexterity featuring Pittards® world class leather known for improved breathability, low water uptake, and soft drying.


The Operator Inner Glove (OIG) is constructed with a core spun merino wool blended with a touch of nylon and premium 100% Pittards® Digital Goatskin Palm. The OIG is the lightest and most tactile glove in the line up offering the most feedback for the user. The trigger finger of the OIG has an advanced patent pending design that will still give excellent transmission of trigger feel, magazine release and other key weapons functions. The OIG can work as a stand-alone capability or when higher durability and toughness is required it can be utilized in conjunction with the Operator Outer Glove (OOG). The advantages in OIG materials and construction is that these gloves almost feel like you are not wearing them and still allow thumb and index finger touch screen compatibility.

In order to achieve this amazing level of peak performance the OIG utilizes extremely light, thin materials which by their very nature will not stand up to extremely long periods of hard abuse and would not be an item you would expect to hand down to your kids like other FS equipment. These gloves should be expected to perform exceptionally well through a standard train up and deployment.


Based upon a battlefield proven design that exposes the trigger finger and thumb for key weapon manipulations the Operator Outer Glove (OOG) is not your average “black leather glove”. The OOG is oversized to fit the OIG underneath for extended resilience and wear performance. Inherently Anti-bacterial odor suppression Goatskin construction with Cow Split palm patch for increased durability and reinforced button holes on the wrist for hooking them to your carabiner. No need to size up on the OOG (large inner glove fits inside large outer glove).  


Last but not least the Operator Contact Glove (OCG) is a mid-weight contact glove designed for professional users operating in a wide variety of climates and conditions. The OCG will provide warmth in conditions down to 40F and protection from thermal transfer in conditions up to 160F, all the while extremely light in design and maintaining great dexterity. Materials selected for the OCG reflect the absolute state of the art for light weight, performance and function while maintaining exceptional durability. If a wide range of rugged locations is your potential Area of Operations or you see 3 or more seasons in the execution of your pursuits, consider the OCG for use as an advanced combat system for your hands.

The Hands On Glove Line incorporates materials from outside the USA that meet or exceed the quality and performance of available USA materials. Material and volume restrictions call for the commercial versions to be manufactured in Sri Lanka with a 100% BERRY compliant variant coming soon. 

I’ve tried them all and am impressed. The OOG is perfectly sized to fit over the inner gloves. Additionally, the TAA compliant gloves made in Sri Lanka are very high quality. In fact, some of the materials for this glove aren’t even available as Berry compliant yet.
