Velocity Systems Releases New Colors For BOSS Rugby

Friday, April 24th, 2015

BOSS Rugby wearers have called for additional colors and Velocity Systems responded by introducing the Coyote version we saw in March as well as the new Ranger Green and Red. If I were ever accused of endorsing a product, the BOSS Rugby would be it. I love these things and it’s great to see more color options.

You’ll notice that the Red variant, which is great for range personnel, is long sleeved and features Grey sleeve pockets. In fact, all three new colors will be offered in Short and Long Sleeve versions. These should be available very soon. In addition to Velocity Systems, SKD Tactical has also placed a stocking order.

Velocity Systems Clarifies Threat Protection Level of VS-P34 Plates

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

Velocity Systems issued this statement in order to clear up any confusion regarding the threat protection level of their VS-P34 plates.

We have heard of a few instances of people incorrectly stating the threat level of our VS-P34 Plate.

Our P34 Plate is an In Conjunction With (ICW) Plate rated for both NIJ Level III and NIJ Level IV.

The P34 MUST be worn In Conjunction With VS-13A Soft Armor to achieve the stated threat level. (The reason for rating the plate to both III & IV is that the NIJ Level IV Threat Rating is not all inclusive of the NIJ Level III Threat Rating)

WARNING: The P34 is NOT a Stand-Alone Plate for ANY threat level. To assume this plate is a “Level III Stand-Alone and Level IV In-Conjunction WIth” is INCORRECT.

Sneak Peek – Velocity Systems Boss Rugby in Brown

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

Velocity Systems is poised to not only release a long sleeved version of the popular Boss Rugby (seen here in Earth) but also a new short sleeved color; Brown. You can see that the new Brown is much darker than the current Earth and will fill the need of many customers looking for a true Brown shade.


The Boss Rugby remains my go-to range shirt for warm weather and now that there’s a long sleeved version, I can wear one all year round.

Velocity Systems – BOSS Rugby And Range Shorts Color Comparision

Wednesday, December 31st, 2014

Yesterday, I drove to the Velocity Systems factory to pick up samples of the new Range Shorts and the MultiCam BOSS Rugby. While we were there, I also happened to purchase the Tan BOSS and Range Shorts for one of my kids.


Due to popular demand, we took a photo for a color comparison between the Earth Tan BOSS Rugby and Tan Range Shorts. As you can see, the BOSS Rugby is closer to the Sand color for current issue Army T-shirts, while the range shorts are closer to a traditional Khaki. This Tan turned out great and I really like the color.

The BOSS Rugby has long been my go-to range shirt and these new shorts are awesome. I had a pair of an earlier version and they’ve really dialed the design in. Designed with a customer from the ground up for range use, the pocket configuration is well laid out.
