Direct Action To Unveils New Products At 2019 IWA Outdoor Classics and Enforce Tac

Direct Action® is ready to Go Loud! this year with their new products to be shown exclusively at the largest exhibitions in Europe – IWA Outdoor Classics 2019 and Enforce Tac 2019 in Nuremberg, Germany.

Within the whole range of presented gear and garments the most noticeable will surely be their newest Direct Action® SPITFIRE® MKII Plate Carrier and a complete combat uniform – VANGUARD®, composed of VANGUARD® Combat Shirt and VANGUARD® Combat Trousers each with Cordura 500D reinforcements.

Direct Action SPITFIRE® MKII Plate Carrier

When it comes to modern tactical equipment, those not going forward are actually going backwards. We, at Direct Action ®, are focused on constant evolution of our products. Thanks to the feedback from users around the world, we were able to create the new, improved version of one of our top products – the SPITFIRE ® Plate Carrier. The MK II version may look simpler, but in fact it is much more scalable and mission configurable. We’ve decided to strip down the carrier of unnecessary PALS slots under the flap and on the back as well as enlarge the loop panel on the front for large LE patches. Even more – we’ve made it lighter than the standard version. Thanks to numerous new flaps, back panels and cummerbunds you are able to make the carrier the way you actually need it.

• Made of Cordura® 500D fabric and proprietary laminate
• Optional accessory cutaway system, compatible also with SPITFIRE® Plate Carrier
• No flap included; various accessory flaps available

    We’ve been teased and left waiting a long time and trust me, the flirt becomes suddenly uncomfortable. DATES OF A SERIOUS RELEASE.

    Same goes to LBX & LBT wich drives me really to a state of mix emotions, upset and numb to their word promising “releases”. “A couple of months” they wrote in their mails, 2 years have passed. And it really hits a nerve when you need to buy equipment and you postpone the whole fucking purchase just to wait a fucking release. Ended up investing in Eberlestock.

    Really pisses me off every annual Shot Show and IWA, the same bullshit.

    One can understand companies like “Kitanica”. Buts still, they don’t go around playing stupid marketing games. Kitanica, promises a date, they stand their word.

    We’re grown ups, sure you can stop that horrible non professional vice.

    “Stay tuned……”
    “a couple months”

    And years pass, leaving us waiting, with our dicks in our hands.
