VSS Services – Tactical Backpack/Biathlon Rifle Sling

Monday, November 9th, 2015


Custom made for VSS Services by Mayflower Consulting and Velocity Systems, the Tactical Backpack/Biathlon Rifle Sling is a European sling design used to more easily carry rifles during mountain operations. The sling functions well with heavier DMR-type rifles, allowing for a free hand for climbing or dragging a deer. It also features QD buckles for quickly transitioning from a carrying to a ready position.

Available in Multicam, Kryptek Yeti (winter), and Kryptek Highlander (Brown).

High Threat Concealment/ADS/SIG Sauer Range Day – Ballistic Off-Body Bag (BOBB)

Friday, September 18th, 2015


The Ballistic Off-Body Bag or BOBB is a Progressive F.O.R.C.E. Concepts design for a “purpose-built shoulder bag of discreet non-tactical appearance”. This translates to a satchel-style, non-“tactical looking” bag that allows users to discretely carry a sidearm, accessories, and other equipment in scenarios when wearing concealing clothing would be impractical, such as when in gym clothes or in hot weather, or when not wearing pants with belt loops.


The BOBB quickly opens, revealing a holstered pistol and a large IFF panel, to which users can attach their ID or Credentials. The BOBB features Level IIIA ballistic panels which extends to both segments of the opened bag, offering 6″ x 18″ of armor coverage. The strap system can be adjusted to pull over both shoulders after it is deployed, so the bag, and by extension the armor, covers from the chest to the groin of the user. Behind the holster panel is a gear storage compartment for magazines, accessories, and other equipment.

The BOBB is manufactured by Velocity Systems, and the custom holster is manufactured by High Threat Concealment. It is available in a variety of colors, including Black, Gray, Forest Green, and Navy Blue, with custom colors upon request.

Sneak Peek – Something New from Velocity Systems?

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

A cool, beach influenced prototype from Velocity Systems was spotted at this week’s Connecticut SWAT Challenge. You’re definitely not going to be the guy, trying not to look like the guy, in this shirt.  Totally conceptual so far, the Point Break Pullover, is what happens when a tactical company lets a “surf first” employee run with an idea. But, if there’s enough interest, it might just make it from sample room to show room.  

Made from a 5 oz 98/2 nylon spandex blend. DWR. Uber stretchy, water, rain, debris repellent. Single large chest pocket, Canadian buttons and great style.

Velocity Systems – Range Shorts

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

I don’t know how the weather is where you are, but here in the Commonwealth of Virginia it is hot, as in over 100 degrees hot. Over the weekend I was pulling some shorts out of the storage bin and it dawned on me that I should remind you about Velocity Systems’ Range Shorts. It’s not often that I wear shorts to the range, but when I do, it’s a pair of these. But generally, I like them for daily wear.  They are a great utility short that I am happy to recommend.


Just as the name implies, these are Range Shorts. The features were all specified by the military customer for use as a training short or wear around the FOB while deployed. Made from the same ripstop 50/50 NYCO found in the ACU, the Range Shorts incorporate slanted openings on the front patch pockets to allow you to comfortably wear a knife or light with clip. The Side Pockets are sized to hold 5.56 or Pistol Magazines. Additionally, they incorporate Dual External Dump Pockets with Velcro tab closures. The deep rear pockets have slanted openings for easy access to the contents. The aren’t many Belt Loops and they are laid out well, allowing for use of a gun belt and to accommodate holster placememt.  Finally, they feature a slotted button closure as well as a Waist Belt Adjustment for use without a belt, in case you want to wear a war belt to the range.

One of the things that has come up with these shorts is the length. I grew up in the 70s & 80s so I prefer my shorts ti be just that, short. My kids on the other hand won’t wear anything that comes above their knee. As you can see, the Velocity Range Shorts fall just above the knee and the legs are wide enough to give you plenty of mobility without looking billowy but they aren’t so short as to make you look like Magnum PI.  The slit at the hem also works to give you some extra room to move around.

Available in Tan or MultiCam, sizes 30-38. They run true to size.
