Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

This is an announcement from Whiskey Two Four regarding their new WTFix system. The full release can be read below.


WTFix is a system consisting of Strapped, Strapless, Straps, Surface and Grid. WTFix is compatible with many PALS inspired modular systems. WTFix is precision laser cut from extremely durable, engineered Hypalon fabric. WTFix is as light as it is tough with components weighing as little as .1oz / 3 grams. WTFix is cost effective replacing both traditional stacked nylon webbing as well as the touch labor necessary to mount it.


WTFix Strapped backers are a self contained attachment solution integrated by the gearmaker at the manufacturing level. Nothing else is needed to mount on modular platforms. WTFix Strapped are available in short (2 row) and long (3 row) in 2, 3, 4, and 6 column widths.


WTFix Strapless backers are integrated by the gearmaker at the manufacturing level and are compatible with Whiskey Two Four’s WTFix Straps, Tactical Tailor’s MALICE Clip, Blade-Tech’s Molle-Lok, BLACKHAWKS!’ Speed Clips, Maxpedition’s TacTie, and similar. WTF Strapless are available in short (2 row) and long (3 row) in 2, 3, 4, and 6 column widths.


WTFix Straps are used to attach compatible modular pouches to modular platforms. WTFix Straps are available in short (2 row) and long (3 row).


WTFix Surface is as an alternative to traditional nylon webbing for modular mounting options on the front and sides of pouches and bags.

WTFix Grid may be used as a stand alone or integrated solution to accept WTFix Strapped, Strapless, Straps, and similar PALS compatible modular attachment systems.

As with other WTF products, WTFix is manufactured in the United States by US citizens from US made materials on US manufactured machinery.

WTFix components and other solutions are available at Please email questions to [email protected].

Whiskey Two Four are proud to continue supporting the gearmaker by offering COTS design and manufacturing solutions for integration into their finished product.

Direct Action Goes Live

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Direct Action logo

Direct Action, a line which debuted at IWA 2014 in Nürnberg, Germany, is Helikon-Tex’s new independent brand. It consists of a head-to-toe system of head gear, garments, load carrying equipment, gloves, and boots, all of which is available in a range of solid colors and camouflage patterns, including Hyde Definition’s PenCott patterns.

Direct Action gear fielded with Polish SOF operators - still from promo video

Direct Action was formed with the backing of 30 years of industry experience from Helikon-Tex. Professional team of designers, prototype makers, and production specialists have all worked on making the products that make up the Direct Action line. All gear in the Direct Action line has been fielded by Special Operations units for end-user trials and evaluations, after initial in-house testing. This input has allowed DA to quickly incorporate suggested improvements to their clothing and gear.

The result is a streamlined, flexible system which interfaces with all components: weapons, load bearing equipment, backpacks, jackets, duty uniforms, and camouflage pattern, creating an effective whole, based on the firsthand, real world experience of Special Operations units.

Helikon-Tex plans to begin US production of the Direct Action line starting in October.

Weapon Outfitters Has KAC T1 and H1 Aimpoint Battery Caps In Stock

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Weapon Outfitters was recently heavily restocked with KAC T1 and H1 Aimpoint battery caps. The T1/H1 Aimpoint sights are awesome and the Knight’s battery cap upgrade is excellent.


Weapon Outfitters did a great job of detailing its advantages:

1. They allow you to store an onboard spare battery for the already impressive Aimpoint Micro
2. They are a lot stronger than the standard battery cap: an actual consideration for hard use rifles. I busted up my stock cap real good and it had to be removed by the gunsmith… the KAC unit is a lot less vulnerable to blunt forces and deformation.
3. The machined features make adjusting brightness a lot easier, especially with gloves and sweaty hands!
4. Lastly, the cost is fair for an intricately machined part and useful upgrade!
