Jim Foreman Joins MATBOCK as Sales Team Lead

Monday, July 16th, 2018

MATBOCK is proud to announce the addition of Jim Foreman as the Sales Team Lead.  Jim retired in 2018 after serving 27 years in the SEAL Teams. During that time he rose through the ranks in various leadership roles to include Squadron Master Chief and Operations Master Chief for a 2k member command. His last 15 months were spent at NAB Little Creek as the Training Master Chief overseeing leadership and training for east coast based SEAL Teams. As the Training MCPO Jim wrote the SEAL SOP handbook, a 100-page manual outlining basic SEAL tactics as well as explaining the roles and responsibilities of both junior and senior leaders. This handbook is now being issued on both coasts. Jim has completed 18 deployments and has been awarded several awards to include the Silver Star, 8 Bronze Stars, Purple Heart and 5 Presidential Unit Citations.

MATBOCK President Zach Steinbock said, “We couldn’t be prouder to have Jim Foreman join our growing team and help bring our gear to the guys still on the battlefield.  Jim’s wealth of tactical and leadership experience is absolutely invaluable and we are excited he has chosen a second professional career with us.”

SOF Select 18 – MATBOCK Introduces New Material for J-LIFT and R-LIFT Litters

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

Last week, I stopped by MATBOCK’s shop in Virginia Beach to check out their new Ghost Heavy material. It boasts 750 lbs sq in tensile strength and over 400 lbs tear strength.

3553A103-721D-4179-9C65-B798663CA64D

Previously, the J-LIFT was made from Trelleborg material, weighing 36 oz.
Now, it’s made from MATBOCK’s new Ghost Heavy material and weighs just 12.4 oz. You can also see how small the litter folds up, fitting in this pouch.

3B96B393-3354-47A5-80D3-BFA1F0AC15F4

So far, they haven’t been able to get the material to absorb anything, meaning it can be deconned over and over. It also features all Kevlar stitching.

The panels are big enough for wrist carry and it accepts poles.

The material is also now on the R-LIFT l, bringing the weight down to 5.5 lbs with the backpack.

This is an inline change for both systems; same part number, same price.

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.

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.
