FirstSpear Friday Focus: NSNS Carrier Systems

This week, we’re showcasing our best selling Non-Stocking Non-Standard (NSNS) carrier systems.

Taking its name from an old Norse Viking term for a lightning raid, Strandhögg was one of the first formalized battle tactics to use covert infiltrators in advance of an actual raiding operation. Strandhögg was a tactical game changer in its time, just like the technological advances FirstSpear brings forward in this line of plate carriers.

Cut edge-to-edge to specifically fit SAPI / ESAPI / SPEAR plate sizes, the Strandhögg can be worn with or without soft armor panels, depending on ballistic requirements, threat conditions and type of plates used. Maximizing lightweight 6/12 technology and rapid Tubes® Closure Systems, this carrier can be rapidly donned and doffed. The Strandhögg is a streamlined fit and is easily tailored for comfort and ventilation.

Named for the intrepid explorer and cunning warrior Ragnar Lodbrok, the Ragnar Vest and its accessories are suited for a wide variety of roles and circumstances. The Ragnar Vest is covered in loop fabric and can be altered with different cummerbunds. Four special built-in pockets with retention tabs allow for storage of accessories based on situational requirements. This is a multi-mission vest with the flexibility to cover a variety of profiles.

The Sloucher combines many of the most desirable features of both the Siege-R and the Sleeper. Stretch panels on the cummerbund and Tubes closures keep the fit tight and allow for quick donning and doffing. The 6/12 Pocket Attachment System provides a low profile. This carrier accepts front, back and side plates SPEAR / BALCS cut soft armor (not included), MASS accessories and pockets using 6/12, 6/9 and MOLLE / PALS. The sloucher provides state of the art capability to support a full spectrum of operations.

The Sleeper is a stay behind asset and a less visible alternative to more overt style tactical vests. This carrier is designed to be worn over or under garments, as a stand alone vest or in conjunction with other FirstSpear carrier systems. The Sleeper fits US SOCOM SPEAR / BALCS soft armor and SAPI / ESAPI / SPEAR plates, including swimmer cut.
