High Speed Gear – NVG Counterbalance Pouch

Monday, August 31st, 2015

SWANSBORO, North Carolina – Aug. 31, 2015 – High Speed Gear has a history of producing some of the most versatile tactical pouches and platforms in the industry.


In keeping with that standard, High Speed Gear is proud to release its new NVG Counterbalance Pouch, designed by RE Factor Tactical. This pouch is designed specifically for individuals using night vision systems with a battery pack attachment. The pouch comes with two .45-pound steel plates to give the user an additional counterweight of just under 1 pound. When combined with the battery pack and batteries, the total counterweight can equal up to around 1.5 pounds to improve balance and comfort with NVGs.

Unlike other counterweights on the market, the Counterbalance Pouch does not impede the use of the NVG battery pack. The pouch is designed to allow the user to utilize the on-off toggle switch, as well as easily change out batteries without removing the battery pack or pouch. Furthermore, we added three small pockets that can be used to stash survival gear, batteries, or any other small mission-essential items. The pack comes with an outer loop panel for adhesion of patches or the addition of illumination marking equipment. It also includes a hook panel on the back to adhere to the back of common Ops-Core/Team Wendy helmets and two bungee support tabs that can adhere to the sides of the helmet to help secure the pouch in place in austere environments.

The NVG Counterbalance Pouch is available now. Made 100% in the USA by High Speed Gear, and designed by Veterans at RE Factor.

“If Only There Was A Law…”

Monday, August 31st, 2015

If only there was a law against murder, all of these killings would stop.

As we all know, depending on the jurisdiction there are multiple statutes against different types of murder, conspiring to murder, using certain implements to murder, depraved indifference to murder and so on.  Yet, it continues to happen.

Never Let A Tragedy Go To Waste
The anti-2A agenda takes every opportunity to call for “common sense” gun control measures, including the most recent horrible murders, where the perpetrators took advantage of social media to spread their agendas of hate.

In the case of the Charleston church murderer, Dylann Roof, the government failed to enforce current legislation by allowing him to purchase a gun in spite of a drug arrest. More recently, Virginia murderer Bryce Williams purchased his gun legally. Yet, none of the current, or proposed firearms legislation would have prevented either of those fiends from violating one of the most fundamental precepts of modern society, “Thou Shalt Not Kill.”

Murder, It’s Illegal, And Yet They Persist
Despite the quote I led the story with, murder is already against the law. Short of developing crime precognition and arresting those who plan to kill, there are no laws that will stop a determined murderer. If they ignore our most basic laws and the sanctity of life, why would we ever expect them to obey gun laws?

Individual Responsibility
Individual responsibility was long the cornerstone of our country’s strength. Now, we have a very vocal element of our society that doesn’t want to hold the individual responsible. Instead, they’d rather blame inanimate objects; like guns and knives, as if the evildoer were the victim.

I personally don’t believe that anyone who commits murder is in their right mind, but that doesn’t mean they are insane either. Conversely, one can be certifiable, unaware of the consequences of their actions, and still do things that are against the law. To be sure, most perpetrators know exactly what they are up to, but the punishment associated with murder doesn’t deter them. We can’t stop evil in men’s hearts but we can counter their actions, if we are prepared to take reaponsibility for our own safety and that of our loved ones.

Some acknowledge evil, and yet their answer is prohibition. They want to ban all firearms hoping that this will stop murder. But, making it harder for law abiding citizens to defend themselves is no answer either.

We need look no further than another instance of prohibition for the answer. As a society we have banned drugs. And yet, our prisons are full of those convicted of trafficking in drugs as well as associated crimes. The criminal element has ended any debate. If guns are outlawed, outlaws will have them, and the citizenry will be left at their mercy. If we want crime and helplessness to sky rocket in America, simply disarm our law-abiding citizens.

More Laws Aren’t The Answer
It’s high time that the anti-gun agenda abandon its tactic of blaming firearms for the acts of criminals and begin to look at enforcing existing laws, as well as effective mental health care. It’s not going to stop all criminal activity, but it will certainly will help.

As for the truly evil ones? I don’t think we’ll ever stop them, but at least the rest of us can defend ourselves, so long as we are armed.

The frame accepts any existing 3-Day Mystery Ranch Assault Pack or Med Pack.

Out of the initial run, only 5 Black MR Drys are left for purchase. Lead time for Wolf Grey and Multicam is approximately 12-14 weeks.

Here is a video which quickly shows how to go from dry to operational using the MR Dry. The video also shows how the inner Mystery Ranch pack can be detached from the Mr Dry, then attached to any Mystery Ranch yoke system.

This Is A Cool Story

Monday, August 31st, 2015

The Norwegian painter, Knud Bergslien (b. 1827 d. 1908) painted the famous picture Birkebeinerne, depicting two loyal soldiers carrying the young prince, Hakon Hakonsson, to safety in 1206. In 1945 Bergans paid N.Dr.5,000 for the rights to use the theme. The name “Birkebeiner” is a registered Bergans brand name. The painting was used as a brand image for a period of 50 years and was re-designed as the vignette used on Bergans products today.
