FirstSpear Friday Focus – Multi-Purpose Pack Available As Non-Standard Non-Stocking

Friday, February 17th, 2017

This week, we take a peek into a line of designs seldom seen outside of the organizations who commissioned them. Non-Standard Non-Stocking items have been designed by FirstSpear at the request of Professional Users to meet a unique mission set. Occasionally, FirstSpear will make a few extra. Due to the specialized nature and limited production of these items, colors are limited.

Originally developed as a medical pack for a US Special Operations unit, this pack can easily be adapted for use as a range bag, E&E pack, or 1 day pack. Features include hydration compartment, padded shoulder straps, 5 external pockets and compression straps.

They can be easily installed on shoulderstraps.

SKD Tactical – FirstSpear STT.1 Plate Carrier

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

SKD Tactical has partnered with FirstSpear to create the STT.1 Plate Carrier, an inexpensive carrier featuring both 6/12 and Tubes technology, optimized for use with SDK’s 10×12 armor plates. SKD’s rather spirited release/product description can be read below:


Combine the technological advances of First Spear and the marketing gonads of SKD in a dirty, backseat tryst, and the only thing that could gestate is a ground-breakingly evil product like the First Spear STT (Six-Twelve-Tubes) Plate Carrier.

Add to that the ultra high performance-to-cost-ratio of the SKD Armor Level IV Plates and a re-design of the STT to fit these plates like a custom Italian suit, and voila… TACTICAL ORGASM, otherwise known as the “STT.1”.

The First Spear STT.1 PC features the following:

  • First and only sub $200 plate carrier featuring BOTH 6/12™ and Tubes™ technology.
  • ONLY FITS SKD Armor 10×12 Plates, but fits them PERFECTLY.
  • All-Molle compatible front, back and cummerbund.
  • Weights 1.5 lbs.
  • Bottom flap pushes the plate to the top of the pocket for proper placement over your upper thoracic region.
  • Exclusive SKD-spec loop fastener strips to add PIG AFC Pontoons for increased air flow and padded goodness.
  • 3 different cummerbund sizes to maximize fit*.
  • Available in Ranger Green, Black, Coyote, Multicam, and MultiCam Black
  • Made in USA.
  • SKD Exclusive!
  • We’ve also packaged the STT.1 with 2 SKD Armor 10×12 Level IV plates for an incredible deal at $499! Click HERE for the complete package!

    Friday, January 27th, 2017

    The cold weather doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon so we thought we’d revisit the Tactical Hand Warmer for this week’s FirstSpear Friday Focus.

    Not only does it keep your hands warm and fingers nimble in cold weather, it stuffs into a compact storage bag when not needed.  It also can attach directly to an armor vest and hang below, right where your hands lie while seated. 

    The fleece lining is super comfy and the Tactical Hamd Warmer can be tightened with the shock cord. 

    In Stock Now in Coyote, Ranger Green and Black.
