FirstSpear Friday Focus: Remembrance

Friday, May 24th, 2024

As Memorial Day approaches on Monday, we at FS take time to reflect on the sacrifice’s on behalf of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. The price of freedom isn’t free.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

FirstSpear Friday Focus: 1st Phorm OEM Spotlight

Friday, May 17th, 2024

This Friday we’re featuring a new OEM Spotlight with 1stPhorm. Based in Fenton, MO as well, FirstSpear has built their latest fitness/tactical plate carrier. The operator plate carrier is available in Woodland & Coyote!

Why did you choose to collaborate with FirstSpear?

1st Phorm has an uncompromising demand to produce the best quality product. There was no other choice than FirstSpear when we looked for partners to help design and build the carrier. FirstSpear supplies the best equipment to elite Tier 1 Units around the world and that’s the quality we were looking for.

Where did the need for the new 1st Phorm plate carrier come from?

Everything on the market was bulky, poor quality, limited the wearers mobility and very hot to train in. We had a need to make a high quality and comfortable vest that our customers could use as a tool to advance their training.

Explain the new vest and why you chose FirstSpear Tubes™ technology.

Whether you’re in the gym, knocking out an outdoor walk, or training on the tactical range … Introducing more weight resistance is your ticket to taking your health & fitness to the next level. Designed to combine comfort, functionality, and modularity to fit your needs, this cutting-edge training accessory will be the perfect tool to help you increase your workload to ultimately earn better results!

Run the Operator Plate Carrier slick (as shipped), or scale it up with your favorite MOLLE-compatible pouches and accessories.

(Weight plates not included)

Why choose the Operator Plate Carrier?

Made in the USA – Every plate carrier is cut, sewn, and assembled right here in St. Louis, Missouri by generational Master Seamstresses. You can be confident you’re getting the absolute best with the Operator Plate Carrier!
