FirstSpear Friday Focus – Contractor Bag and Rolling Frame

Friday, February 27th, 2015

I saw the new FirstSpear Contractor Bag and Rolling Frame at SHOT Show. Generally, companies are want to take this project on due to cost but enough of their customers asked for one that they decided to work out the frame side of things. Building a good bag isn’t the issue for a company like FirstSpear, it’s putting together a frame that balances weight and durability that can be the challenge.


FirstSpear did it by engineering a lighter, more durable rolling frame by taking advantage of advanced design in both tubing and material structure to drop some weight and maintain or increase strength in key areas.


This system features top loading through a generous zipper closed portal and has reinforced secured handles that can be used to offset the pull of the bag behind you so as not to clip your heels or for those times when you find yourself pulling two. If needed, the bag can be removed from the frame for cleaning and repair.


Available in Black, Rust and Manatee Grey so you won’t stick out like the proverbial sore thumb during travel.


Needs More Accessories

Friday, February 27th, 2015

Since are much more interested in trainwreck than actual news, we present this little gem recently showcased on Tactical Fanboy. It’s another file for the “even though you could, you shouldn’t have” folder.


This photo of a highly motivated Peshmerga fighter and his rather interesting rifle recently hit https://www.reddit.com/r/guns/comments/2ve0p1/peshmerga_fighter_holding_what_can_only_be/. The piece de la resistance (pun intended) is definitely the M16 carrying handle.

The Atlas 46 Tool Roll

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

John Carver started the legendary Eagle Industries during the 1980s. A few years back he sold it and went into “retirement”. No sooner than he started odd jobs around his ranch did he realize that he could build a better tool belt. That’s when Atlas 46 was born and since then he has created quite a few items. Just the other day he sent these photos of a new Tool Roll.


Four zippered pockets to keep everything organized and a newly added carrying handle on the latest prototype.

This is teh load of tools in the roll.


Made in USA.

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.
