High Speed Gear Revolutionizes the Magazine Carrier Market Again – Introducing the Polymer TACO

Friday, November 10th, 2017

High Speed Gear (HSGI), designers and makers of the 100 percent Made in the USA, Battle-Proven Tactical Gear™, is proud to announce that the next generation of magazine carriers are here. HSGI originally set the magazine carrier market on fire with its innovative TACO® design that allowed the carrier to be expanded or contracted side to side and back to front, all at the same time. Its revolutionary two-piece system provided the necessary retention and the ability to index just about any magazine on the market. Now, HSGI has built upon the success of the original TACO to a new Polymer TACO, incorporating all the same great patented features, but in a durable polymer material that offers light weight and water proof capabilities (does not water proof inserted items). And, like all of HSGI’s products, backed by a lifetime warranty.

Five different polymer models are being rolled out to cover any need from pistol to rifle magazines and more. The Poly Pistol TACO and the Poly MINI TACO for handgun magazines includes HSGI’s new Universal Clip that allows the user to mount the Poly TACO on MOLLE or a belt up to two inches. The pop-lock configuration orients any excess bungee down and out of the way. Designed with a flared top for easy insertion of magazines and has attachment points on the front for the addition of other pouches. The MINI TACO offers a shorter pouch for an easier grip on the magazines.

The Poly Rifle TACO and all of the new polymer TACOs function identically to their nylon counterparts, but now with the body and brackets made from a durable, flexible, proprietary polymer and laced together with bungee cord offering the familiar versatility HSGI customers count on with the TACO line. The opposite interior magazine catch channels enable a smooth insertion of both left and right facing AR-style magazines and flared tops enable easy reinsertion of magazines. The TACO’s polymer materials are water proof and built-in grommets allow for easy drainage on all the polymer models. Attachment points on the front of the TACO allow the user to modify and add other pouches.

The Poly X2R TACO is designed for any type of rifle magazine with a double decker feature that allows the user to carry two mags in a single pouch and only takes up three inches of horizontal space on the rifle platform. The Poly Double Decker™ TACO combines a rifle magazine pouch and pistol magazine pouch in one secure unit for an infinite variety of rifle and pistol magazines while only taking up three horizontal inches on the platform. Like the other polymer TACO’s, the Poly Double Decker TACO mounts to both MOLLE and belts up to two inches with the new universal HSGI clips.

The new Poly TACO line is HSGI’s lightest magazine carrier system, yet weighs under two ounces and comes in a variety of popular colors: Black, Coyote Brown, Olive Drab and Wolf Gray, all with color matched brackets. Every Poly TACO comes with the new Universal Clip for quick mounting on MOLLE or belt. MSRP starts at $23.00 to $52.00 and are available now at www.highspeedgear.com.

Here at HSGI®, we strive to provide all the gear you need when configuring your kit to patrol your beat, for missions outside the wire or just shooting at the range or everyday carry. With that in mind, we recently redesigned a product that was originally only a novelty and turned it into a practical addition to your bag, belt or pocket. The iTACO® Phone/Tech Pouch V2 comes in two sizes, which very by approximately .25” in width and height, and can even fit larger phone with heavy-duty cases. This pouch features two pockets on either side for your cash, ID, cards and other small essentials. Constructed with double-layered, proprietary 1000D Cordura® laminate, the iTACO® V2 is also moisture/mildew resistant. Unlike its predecessor, the V2 is available in both PALS- and belt-mountable versions.

Today we also released a family of hook-backed utility pouches that are perfect for quick and adjustable storage, whether you adhere it to the inside of our Range Day Pistol Case, our Range/Go Bag or any other platform with loop Velcro®. These Mesh Utility Pouches are constructed with 500D Cordura® and feature interior and exterior mesh pockets. These pouches are available in three sizes and will eventually be available for PALS configurations.

We also plan to launch a sliding, tactical sling in early August. This sling offers the maneuverability of a one-point sling while attaching like a three-point sling. The length of the sling was designed with full-length rifles and shotguns in mind, but can be adjusted up or down for a variety of firearms. You can see this sling in action in the video above.

HSGI® is always creating and innovating, so keep an eye on us for more great gear throughout the year.

Precision-molded Kydex ensures a tight grip and smooth operation, while the adjustable, curved belt loops enhance concealment and comfort. This holster includes removable adapter pieces that enable it to securely fit both 1.5” and 1.75” belts. Additionally, the minimalist cut and precision mold of each holster prevents discomfort or “biting” when sitting or kneeling. These holsters also feature smooth outer surfaces for safe and sleek use. These holsters are currently available for GLOCK and S&W M&P models, as well as Sig Sauer P320 models (released today).

While we’re on holsters, High Speed Gear® just launched our Ambidextrous Nylon Holster (pictured below). Our PALS-mountable, 1000D Cordura® nylon holster was designed to work with most medium frame semi-automatic handguns. Designed for all shooters, it features a removeable bungee retention tab and adjustable thumb break, which can be configured for ambidextrous use. This holster may not be compatible with after-market attachments. It includes one long and one short HSGI® Clip for attachment to PALS. MOLLE webbing on the front and back allows the holster to be attached on either side, perfect for both left- and right-handed shooters.
