The Australian Special Operations Knife is the product of a collaboration between Platatac and Hardcore Hardware Australia. Offered in two blade colors, there is also a training model as well as two belt mounting options; MALICE Clips and Tek-Lok.
I spent last week hunting in New Zealand. One of the first things I packed was my Platatac GBH-R.
I wear it all of the time; while shooting, hunting, hiking and camping. Made from comfortable 100% ripstop cotton, it incorporates full vents on either side and a bungee cinch strap to keep it on your head in the wind. In fact, I wore the GBH-R during a precision shooting course a few weeks ago in SoCal’s high desert where the winds were in excess of 30 mph. It never blew off but didn’t feel uncomfortably tight either.
What I like most about the hat is the short brim which doesn’t block your vision yet still keeps the sun out of your eyes and off your ears.
Mine is in MultiCam, but it’s also offered in AUSCAM as a stock item and occasionally in others as well.
The MAC ALICE Pack is the latest addition to the Platatac pack family. Designed with end user feedback, trialled and adjusted over the last 12 months. Offered currently in Ranger Green.
