Wednesday, February 24th, 2021

Additionally, YETI’s first ever hard-sided luggage offering, the Panga® 22 Carry On, will be available later this spring. Engineered to support your life on the go, YETI’s newest product selection was meticulously designed for durability, protection, accessibility and organization.

The Crossroads Collection includes:

YETI Crossroads 22L Backpack ($199.99 available in Black, Navy and Prickly Pear Pink)
YETI Crossroads 27L Backpack ($229.99 available in Black, Navy, Aquifer Blue and Prickly Pear Pink)

YETI Crossroads Packing Cubes (small $24.99, medium $29.99, large $34.99 available in Gray)

“We first introduced bags as part of our portfolio in 2017 to support our communities and customers who were seeking durable products that met their needs both in active pursuits and in their daily lives,” said Matt Reintjes, President and CEO at YETI. “Over this time, we gained a deeper understanding of how our customers used our products, impacting our design process and ultimately leading to the development of the versatile, tough, and premium Crossroads Collection.”

From morning commutes and overnight business trips to epic travel far from home, every piece in the new Crossroads Collection was built with abrasion-resistant and water-repellent fabric traditionally found in protective safety equipment such as motorcycle apparel and airbags, ensuring the industry- leading quality and durability for which all YETI products are known. The bags and duffels are available in a variety of sizes and colors and are loaded with multiple access points, stash pockets and optional dividers for ultimate interior organization and accessibility. For additional organizational flexibility, washable Crossroads Packing Cubes are available in three different sizes to maximize how customers use their Crossroads Bags.

Later this spring, YETI will launch its Panga 22 Carry On, a solidly built, extremely durable, and 100% waterproof hard-sided luggage. Much like the brand’s signature Tundra® Hard Coolers, the Panga 22 Carry On features best-in-class, performance-driven polymer materials that are puncture- and abrasion- resistant to deliver maximum strength and durability. YETI’s first piece of hard-sided luggage boasts 30 liters of interior volume and incorporates removeable organizers that allow you to transform your luggage into a gear hauler when needed.

From the wheels, housing and hinges, to the latches and handles, the Panga 22 Carry On is engineered with customized and fully serviceable components across the board, creating a truly unique and long- lasting luggage offering.

“Our original Panga collection of submersible dry bags was designed to tackle any terrain,” said Reintjes. “We’ve applied that concept to create a premium outdoor hard-sided luggage that is not only waterproof, rugged, and features the best-in-class durable materials YETI is known for, but is also engineered for optimal performance, wherever you may go.”

The newly expanded Crossroads Collection and the upcoming Panga 22 Carry On will join YETI’s existing offering of bags, including the popular Camino® Carryall 35 and the waterproof Panga Duffels and Panga Backpack. For more information about the new bags from YETI visit yeti.com.

FirstSpear Friday Focus: Assaulter’s Gun Belt

Friday, February 12th, 2021

This week’s focus is FirstSpear’s Assaulter’s Gun Belt (AGB). It’s a versatile belt designed to handle tough situations. Accessed through a two-point, high strength metallic buckle, the AGB is strong enough for you to facilitate combat-equipped buddy drags. It can integrate with the AGB Padded Sleeve to provide more comfort and provide you with additional 6/12 attachment points. FS also offers AGB point pads, deluxe suspenders and 6/9 belt links that can be purchase separately.

• Belt Width: 1.75”
• Buckle Width: 2”
• Integrates with the AGB Padded Sleeve
• Accommodates multiple FS components
• Completely removable buckle
• Compatible with Base Belt or Base Belt Lite when used with the AGB Sleeve

It’s a phenomenally rigid and surprisingly comfortable piece of first line gear.

“I’ll be honest, my old belt sucked and I wanted a replacement. A friend of mine kept plugging First Spear and I’m glad I listened to his suggestion. This belt is incredibly rigid and has served me well as an EDC belt as well as a full on stand-alone load bearing platform. Handles any and all things I’ve slapped on it and more with ease. I’m planning on purchasing another along with an AGB padded sleeve so I don’t have to pick between using the AGB as a standalone and having it set up as a fully dedicated battle belt. Why choose when you can have both? Compared to other belts I’ve used this belt is both much more rigid and surprisingly comfortable. I would not hesitate to replace this belt with an identical one, or to recommend First Spear products to any of my buddies. Top of the line, no compromise gear. Will be buying from you guys again.”

It can also accommodate many different FirstSpear components that will help optimize it for the full spectrum of tactical and discretionary operations. The buckle is completely removable from the belt for routing through smaller pant belt loops.

*This AGB is setup with the FS SSV Holster, AGB padded sleeve—sold separately*

Now available in black, khaki and MultiCam.

Wednesday, February 10th, 2021

New Bino Harness Offers Versatile, Dependable Optics Protection

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – February 9, 2021 – Butler Creek®, maker of smart, field-proven hunting and shooting accessories, announced today that the company’s new Featherlight Bino Caddy is now available. Made of the same patent-pending breathable closed cell foam material as the popular Butler Creek Featherlight sling, the Butler Creek Bino Caddy offers hunters a comfortable, dependable way to protect their glass in the field.

Butler Creek’s Featherlight caddy comes in three sizes to fit 10×42, 12×50 or 15×56 roof prism binoculars. A three-dimensional top flap keeps out dust and moisture, while silent suede materials and the Featherlight backing help protect hunters’ binoculars from impacts and abrasions. Breathable and cushioned, the Featherlight material is as effective at protecting optics as it is comfortable for users. The innovative slotted foam backer not only allows trapped heat to escape but it also provides additional cushion when used under heavy back packs and other accessories.

Not skimping on comfort or convenience, the Featherlight Bino Caddy features adjustable straps and a quick disconnect harness design for added safety and a secure fit. Easy to use from the truck to the stand, this caddy uses a quiet magnetic closure that automatically engages to secure binoculars. The forward opening top allows for efficient one-handed access to the main compartment as well.

Loaded with extra features, the Butler Creek Bino Caddy does more than keep a hunter’s optics at the ready. Hunters and shooters will appreciate the MOLLE webbing on the front and side of the caddy for attaching accessories. An interior mesh pocket and rear compartment are perfect for small game calls or tags, while the mesh side pocket is great for a small bottle of wind indicator or other items.

The Featherlight Bino Caddy comes in Prym1 MP (multi-purpose) camouflage, Prym1’s most versatile hybrid camo pattern. This particular camo is designed for all-season use, from the whitetail woods to western big game hunts and everything in between. 

The new Butler Creek Bino Caddy has an MSRP of $74.95 for the 10×42 size, $79.95 for the 12×50 size, and $84.95 for the 15×56 size.

High Speed Gear Releases New, Compact ReVive Medical Pouch

Monday, February 8th, 2021

SWANSBORO, N.C. – Feb. 8, 2021 – High Speed Gear® is proud to announce the release of the ReVive™ Medical Pouch, the brand’s newest, low-profile medical pouch.

The ReVive is a quick-access, compact pouch built around treating a single gunshot wound. The pouch features the patent-pending RipCord™ insert, which allows the contents to be retrieved with one quick motion. The durable, stretch-woven fabric body allows the ReVive to adapt to the user’s preferred supplies, while the Mini MOLLE backer allows for a precise fit on belts 1.5”-3” in .5” increments, as well as standard MOLLE.

“Many of our users do not have the space, or need, to carry a full-sized IFAK. This pouch is for them,” explained Daniel Chaney, HSGI® senior designer. “The ReVive borrows DNA from its bigger brother, the ReFlex™ IFAK System, and applies it to a more compact package. We included the same thoughtful, user-centric features – instant access to supplies, external glove storage, expansion options for shears and a tourniquet – in a package that fits where a full-sized IFAK will not. We relied heavily on our expert users as we developed the ReVive, zeroing in on the features that will be most appreciated when this product is used in the field.”

This pouch is designed to fit a chest seal, 4” trauma dressing and combat gauze in the removable, self-contained harness, as well as two pairs of nitrile gloves in the two external pockets, trauma shears in the rear slot and a tourniquet on the side lash points.

Multi-Purpose Perfection

“My first experience with the MPP was borrowed from a friend during a shooting event. He swore by it, and let me borrow it for a few events to try out for myself. I was so impressed, I had to buy my own. This pack excels at modular packing and light carry. It fits far more gear than I anticipated, any never once showed signs of breaking. The stitching was superb and heavy duty. I’ve used his to create my range IFAK kit that I also leave in my truck for expedient ALS. I highly recommend this pack to everyone.”
