SKD Tactical – PIG Bomber Mag Pouch

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014


Manufactured from Nylon webbing, the PIG Bomber Mag Pouch’s construction offers 45.3 million times the abrasion resistance as standard nylon (ok, it’s not THAT much, but it’s more). The PIG Bomber Mag Pouch is also lightweight at 2.4 ounces (2.8 oz for the double).

PIG Bomber Mag Pouch - Side

This also makes for a super slim pouch but it relies on additional devices like MALICE clips or zip ties to be PALS compliant.

PIG Bomber Mag Pouch - rear

You might notice that the pull tab is made of Hypalon which makes it great for use in wet conditions. There is also a small grommet at the floor of the pouch to facilitate drainage. Additionally, the flaps on both the Single and Double versions can be tucked into the body for an easy-access open top pouch.

PIG Bomber Mag Pouch - Double

The Double version of the PIG Bomber Mag Pouch incorporates an internal elastic strap to held your rear magazine fast while you draw the front mag.

Available in Black, Coyote, Ranger Green and MultiCam.

Velocity Systems Boss Rugby Available In More Colors

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

If you’ve run into me at a trade show over the past few months, you’ve probably seen me wearing a Boss Rugby from Velocity Systems. I love this thing. Over the past 6 months, I’ve not only worn it to trade shows but also camping, hiking and to the range. It’s not only comfortable but also durable. The fabric has yet to pill or pull.


The Boss Rugby is made from a nylon/spandex blend to give it a little mechanical stretch as well as great wicking properties to increase comfort. The fabric also incorporates both soil release treatment as well as Odorexx™ Antimicrobial which is good for 25 washes.

This is a fantastic fabric but unfortunately, many see images of the material and think it’s the same stuff that those mesh penny vests you wore as a kid are made from. It’s not. Rather than actual mesh, it’s a pointelle knit which helps with breathability. As you can see, there aren’t any actual holes in the fabric.


The other misconception many have about the Boss Rugby is the two flat shoulder pockets. They feature a pile fabric that accepts Velcro hook. It isn’t some big, fuzzy, high profile patch at all. It’s a very low impact material and blends in well with the rest of the shirt.


I cannot recommend this shirt enough and I hope that these couple of photos have given you a better idea of what the Boss Rugby is all about.


The Boss Rugby is available from Velocity System via phone order or through SKD Tactical for online order in Black, Wolf Grey and Tan, sizes Small – XXLarge.
