For this Spring 2016, San Francisco based specialty outdoor products company Prometheus Design Werx debuts their Expedition Watch Band Compass Kit on Friday, March 18@12noonPST. PDW introduces an EDC and field, magnetic compass designed to be worn on a nylon NATO­ style watch band, or with the accompanying silicone carrier, can be worn on anything from a pack’s sternum strap, to belt loops, and more. Unique and notable to their oil filled button compass found in this product, is the water resistant rating to a depth of 100M making it operational on land or underwater. The button compass component is cushioned in a Glow ­in­ the ­Dark silicone gasket and housed in a Type III hard anodized 6061T6 billet case,precision milled in the USA.  

The EWBC Kit includes a complete compass and housing assembly, and a choice of one of three pictured colors in the silicone carrier. The button compass component is removable/replaceable from the billet housing and new units can be obtained by contacting the company’s Customer Service Department. This EWBC Kit will be and evergreen product for Prometheus Design Werx.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

While we can use to great effect and marvel at the products of our digital age, there is still something substantial to be respected, acknowledged and said for analog and mechanical devices.  The invention and introduction of the magnetic compass transformed the known world. Unreliant on batteries or circuit boards, a magnetic compass is the directional navigation tool in its most distilled and purest form. Our design process to create this modern classic drew inspiration from similar units as used and worn by UDTs, Combat Swimmers, Explorers and Adventurers from a different era. No less relevant today as it was yesterday, a compass that only needs the earth’s magnetic field to operate and is a tried and trued navigational device for anyone who spends time in the field.   

Each compass case is precision machined in the USA. The Black ITS Tactical model features a slot on the back that’s laser engraved with the ITS shield and slides onto most NATO-style watch straps up to 22mm.

ITS Tactical Updates Medical Lineup

Friday, August 28th, 2015

ITS Tactical has updated their EDC Kit to now include a full-sized SOFTT-W Tourniquet while still retaining the small form factor that fits in your back pocket.

 

Contents:

• QuikCLot Combat Gauze LE (Features X-Ray Detectable Strip)
• SOFTT-W Tourniquet
• Nitrile Gloves (Pair)
• Contents List w/ CoTCCC Care Under Fire Instructions
• Your choice of Coyote Brown or Black Sleeve (Made in USA)

  

Newly redesigned to contain a full-size tourniquet, the EDC Trauma Kit is the original vacuum-sealed pocket trauma kit and the smallest, full-featured pocket kit on the market. Perfect for your back pocket to provide the ability to carry lifesaving equipment with you wherever you go.

The EDC Trauma Kit is literally the size of an average wallet, can be stuffed in a back pocket and only weighs 6 ounces with the included pouch. The lightweight nylon sleeve protects your EDC Kit against damage and potential puncturing of the vacuum seal while being carried in your pocket or bag. Their nylon sleeves are also printed to denote medical equipment. 

Each kit is hand assembled and vacuum sealed at the ITS HQ in Texas using nearly all US-made components (Nitrile Gloves are the only overseas item.)

  

Expiration dates vary depending on individual components, but ITS strives to provide at least a five-year shelf life for the first to expire item.

ITS Modular Morale System

Friday, April 3rd, 2015

ITS_Modular_Morale_System_06

Today, ITS Tactical is launching their new Modular Morale System.

The MMS is specifically designed to accommodate all manner of patches, lapel pins, buttons, Military Ribbons, cards, and more. It is capable to doing this due to its materials and construction: 3/16″ foam bonded to an HDPE plastic backer, covered in UBL soft loop fabric which is stitched down.

ITS_Modular_Morale_System_12

The soft loop fabric wraps around to the back of each panel. This creates a picture framed strip around the outer edge that interfaces with two included 12″ strips of 2″ wide Velcro adhesive-backed hook. This adhesive backing is extremely aggressive, and mounts to a wide variety of surfaces.

ITS_Modular_Morale_System_05

Each panel is 12″ x 18″, and the seamless edges combined with the mounting method allows users to indefinitely expand the MMS to grow along with their collection of morale items.

The Modular Morale System is made in Texas.

The ITS Hypalon Concealment Wallet is constructed from Hypalon, a synthetic rubber resistant to chemicals, ultraviolet light, and extreme temperatures. This material’s “tackiness” keeps the wallet in the user’s pocket, and will also keep its contents in place. The Hypalon Concealment Wallet is a bi-fold design capable of holding 4-12+ cards, with a rear currency pocket.

its-tactical-hypalon-concealment-wallet-8

Aside from being extremely durable, the Hypalon Concealment Wallet also has two discreetly hidden compartments along the currency pocket, designed to hold physical security tools. These compartments are located on concealed fold-out flaps which blend in with the seam lines from the front wallet interior, and are bisected with stitch lines, forming the individual compartments to store tools.

its-tactical-hypalon-concealment-wallet-10

ITS is offering an optional Wallet Entry Kit as a complement to the hidden compartments featured in the wallet. The kit consists of a selection of tools which are appropriate and functional enough to defeat common pin and tumbler locks, padlocks, multi-wheel combo locks, and escape from multiple methods commonly utilized in illegal restraint, such as commercially available handcuffs, zip ties, duct tape, and rope. Those tools are:

  • (1) Diamond Wire Blade
  • (1) Split-Pawl Handcuff Shim
  • (1) Quick Stick
  • (1) EZ Decoder
  • (1) Ceramic Razor Blade
  • (6) Feet of 188 lb. Test Kevlar Cordage
  • (6) Feet of Stainless-Steel Coated Leader Wire
  • (1) Flat Ti Bogota Entry Single Rake
  • (1) Flat Ti Bogota Entry Triple Rake
  • its-tactical-hypalon-concealment-wallet-13

    ITS is also offering an optional RFID Wallet Sleeve. This sleeve interferes with radio frequencies and electromagnetic waves, disrupting the operation of any electronic device contained within. It is perfectly sized to fit in the rear currency department, and can hold a few credit cards and/or ID cards which utilize RFID technology to transfer data. The RFID Wallet Sleeve features include:

  • 3.75” x 2.75” RFID Blocking Card Sleeve
  • Single Layer of Conductive Silver/Copper/Nickel RoHS Compliant Material
  • Shielding Effectiveness of -70dB in the range of 30 MHz to 18 GHz
