MATBOCK Monday || Grave Robber

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

Over the past few weeks, we have seen multiple new pouches from MATBOCK under the Grave Robber name to include the Vent Pouch, IV Pouch, Drug Roll, and Multi-Function Pouch.  The only piece missing was the below Grave Robber Bag.

The new pack from MATBOCK was designed in collaboration with expeditionary military physicians to meet operational requirements.  The pack holds all the pouches on the internal velcro backing and make it easy to access all compartments when hung from an airframe or wall for advanced operational medical treatment before the hospital.

The Grave Robber bag itself can be mounted to multiple frame systems to easy transport, has completed successful trials in the wind tunnel and freefall jump operations, and can also be mounted in MATBOCK’s medium size MR DRY system for water drops, OTB or underwater operations.

The bag folds open like a suitcase to display the entire contents and also features two hanging straps at the top for attachment to the airframe or wall.  The head pouch is designed to be carried independently if needed and hold the operator’s gear separate from the medical gear in the pack.

The kit comes with the Grave Robber Bag, 4 x Multi-Functional pouches, 1 x Drug Roll, 1 x Vent Pouch, 2 x IV Pouches and can be purchased with or without a Mystery Ranch NICE Frame.

More information can be found at www.matbock.com/collections/packs/products/grave-robber-kit.  The first chance to see the entire system will be at SOMSA in Charlotte this May and SOFIC the week after.

The pouch holds the ventilator on the front flap of the pouch which folds down via Velcro and cord. This configuration allows access to all ports and buttons. The tubing and accessories can be stored in the back of the pouch and it also provides enough room for a spare battery pack or other medical kit.

MATBOCK Monday || Jump Assault Pack

Monday, March 19th, 2018

6C7546E7-5584-4E6E-A136-658FFA8B31D4

A variant of the 1 day assault pack, the jump assault pack is specifically reinforced and designed for jump operations. All strapping is either continuous or connected in the backing of the pack to include the two connection loops meant for attachment to the parachute itself via release lines. Additionally, the system had a 1 pull release system for a primary weapon system. The weapon is mounted and jumped in the horizontal position and then can be released with one pull to give the jumper instant access to the primary weapon if necessary. The belly band of the parachute mounts across the top third of the pack, just above the primary weapon to keep it secure during the jump. The entire front flap of the containment system is released by this mechanism. For easy stowage, the flap can be snapped back into place instead of reweaving the pull handle. The pack also allows integration with the S&S Precision jump board across the back via webbing and Velcro.

MSRP for the pack is $600 and it is available immediately.

MATBOCK Monday || The Sheath

Monday, March 12th, 2018

img_7045.jpg

The first patented retractable lanyard riggers belt has just been released by MATBOCK.  It incorporates a 4000 lbs Kevlar lanyard with Dyneema stitching at the load point into your normal riggers belt.  The operator can simply pull on the 2 stage carabiner to extend the lanyard and hook into the helicopter or hoist system.  After detaching, the lanyard automatically retracts back into the belt.  Instead of having to stuff the lanyard into a pocket or have a loop near his/her hip as a snag hazard, the operator’s lanyard is tucked away until needed again.  Furthermore, the Kevlar lanyard is spliced at both ends and the Dyneema stitching at the hot point prevents decay from salt water, possibly compromising the safety of the operator during an emergency situation.  This initial version has a fixed length 20-inch lanyard to be at arm’s length for most soldiers.

MATBOCK expects to release an adjustable length lanyard with an emergency release system in the next month to comply with SOCOM requirements.

MATBOCK MONDAY || Backdraft

Monday, February 26th, 2018

85464349-99FB-4FE2-834E-706EE1CF1567

The MATBOCK Backdraft Medical Kit was designed for smaller units with pretty quick access to next level care.  Instead of carrying an entire med bag, the medic or corpsman can now have a more streamlines system.  The Backdraft mounts on the back of the plate carrier via MATBOCK’s Tabs and contains two separate pouches, one for airway and one for bleeding.  The bags are held in place via adjustable amounts of velcro and they have lanyards that secure near the side plates on the carrier. 

When one pouch is needed, the operator can simply select the correct lanyard and pull.  From recent combat action in Afghanistan, one medic had the following to say, “It’s an awesome system and perfect for the mission set we’re doing, much more comfortable and streamlined than a traditional aid bag.”  The system is made from MATBOCK’s Ghost and Ghost Lite materials making the bags lightweight and water resistant to protect your medical kit.

MATBOCK Monday || S-LIFT

Monday, February 12th, 2018

The S-LIFT is the next product found in the LIFT System. The S-LIFT was the first product developed in the system and was derived on the battlefields of Iraq. The founders of MATBOCK were tired of carrying around an SSE bag and a soft stretcher, so they created the S-LIFT.

This patented product weighs only 10oz, comes vacuum sealed and fits right in the palm of your hand. When needed, the S-LIFT may be deployed as an SSE bag to assist in collecting evidence. It features a drawstring and shoulder strap, but can quickly be re-configured as a soft stretcher by using the zipper down 2 sides. Since carrying a down operator for any period of time with a soft stretcher is less than ideal, MATBOCK built handles that also accept the combat carbon poles. If you remember the article from last week, these poles are the same ones found on the LIFT Ladder.

Technical Specifications:

• Dimensions:

-As a bag: 29 inches x 24 inches

-Volume of bag: 4,222 cubic inches (69 liters)

-As a stretcher: 78 inches x 29 inches

-Rolled for storage: 9 inches x 4.5 inches x 2 inches

• Weight: 10oz

• Maximum carrying capacity: 400lbs
