FirstSpear Friday Focus: NSNS Carrier Systems

Friday, November 25th, 2022

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.

Lindnerhof-Taktik Sets 16 November for Launch of New Adapter Sets and Harnesses

Wednesday, November 16th, 2022

LENGGRIES, GERMANY (15 NOV 2022)—Lindnerhof-Taktik GmbH will tomorrow round out a remarkable year of product introductions with the launch of several innovative adapters and harnesses designed to make the brand’s earlier gear additions more versatile and combinable.

The new products are:

• Waist Belt MX129
• Waist Belt Adapter 3-Rows MX345
• Waist Belt Adapter Quick Release 3-Rows MX346
• Hook Buckle Adapter MX498
• Plate Rig Harness Set MX731
• Chest Rig Harness MX732
• Chest Rig Adapter Kit LT266

“We believe that users of our 2022 product lineup will love these additional accessories because of the way they permit fast and easy transformation of bedrock Lindnerhof setups into entirely new load-outs offering increased utility and functionality,” said Chief Executive Officer Jakob Kolbeck.

Kolbeck offered as an example the brand’s beloved classic Plate Carrier LT025/5. “With these new adapters and harnesses, we’ve opened the door to turning the LT205/5 into a plate carrier suitable for more types of missions, for more of the increasingly challenging kinds of missions operators are today being sent out on,” he said. “Now, with ease, the good old LT205/5 gains a super-lightweight skeletonised waist belt that’s closable using our patented, cutting-edge hook- buckle system. All you need for this is our new Waist Belt Adapter 3-Rows MX345, Waist Belt MX129, and Hook Buckle Adapter MX498.”

Kolbeck described how those items are utilised. “Loop the MX345 in a crisscross manner on each end of the waist belt, then affix the waist belt to the back part of the LT025/5 carrier, just as you are accustomed to doing,” he said. “To close your new waist belt, fix the MX498 Adapters via the supplied Velcro® fasteners on the front part and close the hook buckle. That’s all there is to it.”

Each adapter is sold separately; however, there is also a special adapter available—Waist Belt Adapter Quick Release 3-Rows MX346—for use with the “Schutzweste Infantrie” protective vest from Mehler Vario System GmbH. Like the MX345, the MX346 skeletonises the waist belt.

“What we’ve attempted to do here is offer our users as much modularity as possible,” said Kolbeck. “Because we here at Lindnerhof are former end-users of tactical gear, our thinking about the development of products is guided by what we understand to be the needs of current end-users. However, that understanding does not come solely from our own past experiences but much more from feedback we solicit and receive from current end-users. We do not forget where we came from, but neither do we lose sight of where the current users are going—and that is on increasingly demanding missions.”

Beyond the new options for updating waist-belt systems into modern quick-release versions, Lindnerhof also is including in its product range several new harnesses.

Said Kolbeck: “If you already are using our Split Front Chest Rig MX266, you’ll know already the new Chest Rig Harness MX732, which is a classically designed, softly padded chest rig harness with extra MOLLE/PALS slots and loops to let you carry additional equipment, such as cable guides, hydration tube guides, and more.

“In combination with our newly released Chest Rig Adapter Kit LT266, you’ll be able to create and set up an individualised Lindnerhof Micro Rig. Also, this past April, we announced the availability of our new MX Panels—they have special loops that serve as attachment points for the Adapter Kit LT266 which, in turn, attaches to the new MX732 harness.”

Of the MX732-related Plate Rig Harness MX731, Kolbeck said: “It completes our new product launch and is an essential accessory if you’re a sniper or just need to carry a heavyweight backpack, sit in a vehicle while attired in body armour, or plan to tote our Backpack HL334. The MX731 is intended for use specifically with our Ultralight Plate Carrier MX244, when you don’t need a ballistic plate in the back, the MX731 can take the place of the back part and transform the carrier into a sort of plate rig that gives you an ultra-low profile with no loss of comfort and release options.”

Kolbeck indicated that the MX731 also includes a skeletonised waist belt that precisely fits into the patented hook-buckle system at the front of Ultralight Plate Carrier MX244.

“We are very confident that these final additions to our 2022 product range are not an end- point but are in fact just the beginning of a strong, uninterrupted stream of creative ideas and options to give users of Lindnerhof gear still greater freedom to set up and load out exactly the way they need in order to meet the unique demands of each mission, so please stay tuned.”

SLNT – Faraday Sleeves

Friday, November 4th, 2022

I met SLNT at SOFIC where they were exhibiting in the new products pavilion.

SLNT manufactures bags with a particular emphasis on Faraday bags of various sizes. A Faraday bag works as a portable Faraday cage, blocking electronic emissions both into and out of your device including Cellular, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, RFID, NFC, EMR, EMP, and EMF.

Of both personal and professional interest are the Faraday Sleeves which are sized to accommodate key fobs, phones/End User Devices, tablets, and laptops. There are even versions that not only block emissions, but also integrate PacSafe anti-theft technology to prevent a would-be thief from cutting open the bag.

In addition to their website, SLNT products are available via GSA Advantage.
