High Speed Gear Announces the ReFlex Hanger IFAK System

Monday, August 15th, 2022

SWANSBORO, N.C. – Aug. 15, 2022 – High Speed Gear® has introduced the ReFlex™ Hanger IFAK System into their line of ReFlex™ IFAK products.

The ReFlex™ IFAK was developed with direct input from active-duty medical personnel. It’s a two-piece system, med roll and hanger carrier, that is designed to attach directly to the hook and loop of a plate carrier to carry organized medical supplies with ambidextrous accessibility. The system, constructed primarily with heavy-duty nylon laminate, allows rapid deployment of medical supplies and was designed around the medical supplies included in the U.S. Army-issued IFAK. The ReFlex™ Hanger and ReFlex™ Med Roll can be purchased together or separately.

The ReFlex™ Hanger is the fourth IFAK accessory added to HSGI’s ReFlex IFAK product line up. Also included is the ReFlex™ IFAK system, ReFlex™ Vehicle Mount, and ReFlex™ Leg Rig. The ReFlex™ Hanger was field tested by U.S. Army Special Forces operators prior to its release. This new medical pouch fills the gap for those who use drop-down/hanger style pouches to carry their medical equipment under the front of their plate carriers and chest rigs.

“The ReFlex™ IFAK System is one of those products that continue to develop into more variations that suit our end users’ needs.” Said Bill Babboni, HSGI’s chief operating officer. “The ‘Hanger’ simply allows users another way to carry their life-saving medical equipment that may be more tailored to how they go to business.”

The ReFlex™ Hanger IFAK System is available for purchase on the High Speed Gear® website at ReFlex™ Hanger.

Uncharted Supply Co – The Park Pack

Sunday, August 14th, 2022

One of the other items I saw from Uncharted Supply Co during last week’s The Big Gear Show in Park City was The Park Pack. This waist pack features a padded hip belt and a waterproof main compartment made from seam sealed 600D Tarpaulin with a YKK water-resistant zipper.

The Park Pack comes outfitted with dual PALS compatible water bottle holsters. These can be removed for other kit if desired.

There’s ample room (2.8 liters) inside for the gear you want to keep close at hand. In these photos you can see it is paired with the Triage Kit which is stocked with first-aid and gear repair items.

The Park Pack is available on Green, Grey, or Black at unchartedsupplyco.com/products/park-pack.

XMOD System

Saturday, August 13th, 2022

The XMOD System is a modular, high-speed, magazine carrier and storage solution released by XMG this past January at SHOT Show. XMOD stands for X-tra Mag On Demand. The XMOD System is not your conventional magazine carrier, and it certainly raises some eyebrows. When you first see it in action, you’ll pause, you’ll have questions, you may have some mixed feelings and some of you will be polarized. Some of you will dismiss it, until you realize that its full capabilities only stop with your own creativity.

Evan Brozda, inventor, and co-founder of XMG, describes it best: “A ‘Pez-Dispenser’ for your M4/AR15 Mags. Sure, it looks like a big, bulky box, but the R&D put into this incorporated a lot of subtle design features. People are polarized with their first impression of the XMOD System. You either love it or hate it. I love seeing how a substantial number of people who are initially put off by the XMOD System hit a certain tipping point, where a conversion happens. We call it ‘the switch.’ It’s the point where their mind opens to the possibilities and capabilities that our “Pez-dispenser” box gives them. That’s where the magic happens. And everyone has their own way that they use it.”

Simply put, the XMOD System is a spring-loaded magazine carrier with a quick attach/detach mounting system. The mount is called the ‘Delta Plate’. The mag dispenser part is called the ‘XpaK’. You can mount a Delta Plate pretty much anywhere you want to keep your mags. For instance, you can mount it in your safe, in your vehicle, on MOLLE-adaptable gear (i.e., a plate carrier or bag), on a raptor, helicopter, ATV, amphibious assault vehicle, etc. The XpaK docks into the Delta Plate with an audible click and it’s locked in. Want to move it or reorient its position to a 3, 6, 9 or 12 o’clock position on the mount? There’s a thumb retention button to release the auto aligning/locking mechanism that holds the XpaK in place.

The idea behind the XMOD System is subtle and creative: it’s a way to keep your mags ready to go at a moment’s notice for dealing with threats when your first mag runs dry or simply a way to keep your mags stored and grab one when you need it. It’s truly a user-definable system, you choose how and where to use it. Mags are readily available and there’s many mounting options based off your needs. Vehicular applications are certainly the first application that comes to mind. Use vehicles resources FIRST before depleting the mags on your person. Then think about hardened security locations: guard posts, tactical retreat positions, armories, safes, a squad vehicle trunk, or Bearcat, etc. The options here are endless based off your MOS, mission/duty requirements or personal preference. Then there’s the on-body option… If you look at some of the videos that XMG has on their YouTube Page, you can consistently reload mag after mag in under 2 seconds. The XpaK can hold 6 polymer mags or 7 GI/STANAG mags.

The XMOD System was designed in part as a solution to help non-Special Forces military members to consistently reload their rifle under battlefield stress and still maintain their situational awareness. Most military personnel are only allotted one day on the range and 550 rounds to hone their marksmanship skills. “For the non-SF or non-forward operating units that only get one day on the range, get deployed and potentially end up in a firefight, they just don’t have the proficiency and battlefield experience to be as lethal as possible in combat. That is not OK,” said Evan Brozda. “When it comes to a life-or-death situation, we look at certain aspects of the problems encountered from different angles, some that people don’t even know exist and for others, these are non-issues because they train a lot. We’re out to make our warfighters more lethal by enhancing their capabilities and efficacy and hopefully, save their lives when it comes down to those life-or-death situations.”

XMG is currently releasing the next few components of the XMOD System called the ”4stiX” and “6stix.” They are two different-sized MOLLE panels that also integrate into the quick attach/detach Delta Plate mount and gives you the ability to attach your own MOLLE gear and integrate it into the XMOD System. Maybe they’ll change their definition to “Xtra-Modular” since now, pretty much any gear can be used with the XMOD System. Check out their product teaser video on their YouTube page. Currently, only pre-orders are available on their website for the 4stiX and 6stiX components, where you can install your own MOLLE gear/pouches/IFAKs or whatever else you want, into their QD MOLLE system and customize your own XMOD System.

Lindnerhof-Taktik Rolls Out New Split-Front Chest Rig, Rifle Magazine Pouches; All Available for Purchase Starting 12 August

Friday, August 12th, 2022

LENGGRIES, GERMANY (11 August 2022)—Lindnerhof-Taktik, GmbH, will tomorrow [12 August] begin making available for purchase three new items to help tactical operators achieve greater mission success. The debuting products are the MX266 Splint Front Chest Rig, the MX002 MX Rifle Magazine Pouch Single, and the MX098 MX Rifle Magazine Panel Triple.

The MX266 Split Front Chest Rig is a lightweight two-piece unit that includes its own padded carrying system.

The MX 002 Rifle Magazine Pouch Single and MX098 Magazine Panel Triple are low-profile, easy access receptacles made to hold magazines for the Heckler & Koch G36 assault rifle and those for most other carbines using 5.56x45mm NATO rounds.

According to company officials, the MX266 Split Front Chest Rig builds on the proven design elements of previous Lindnerhof chest rigs but with several important enhancements, the company said.

First, the MX266 is constructed from Lindnerhof’s innovative new multiaxial laminate. This durable yet featherlight material reduces the weight of the chest rig, making it easier to carry.

Second, the fully MOLLE/PALS-compatible MX266 features a midsection split-option zipper that allows users to keep their gear within easy reach when they take up a prone position, thereby eliminating the need to remove the rig in order to access stowed ammo, radio equipment, and other mission essentials.

Third, the MX266 includes its own padded, slotted, and loop-fitted carrying system that allows the piece to be used as an add-on to any other Lindnerhof chest rig model.

“I’m a former sniper, and to me the MX266 Split Front Chest Rig represents a well-conceived expansion of our existing Lindnerhof MX product range—one that’s right in step with these times of super-durable, ultralight plate carriers,” said Jakob Kolbeck, CEO of Lindnerhof- Taktik.

“The MX266 is the latest innovation spun from the relentless efforts of our R&D department,” he continued. “It brilliantly addresses a challenge every sniper, every rifle operator, faces in the field—the challenge of being able to quickly retrieve gear from the front of the rig when you’re belly down in the dirt. Before the MX266, you’d have to completely remove the rig to fish out what you needed. But with the MX266, all you have to do is unzip it and you’ve got direct access from the side. Very cool.”

Kolbeck added that the MX266 comes with a cleverly engineered securing buckle for fast closing of the chest rig when the mission ends or at any point prior. “You don’t even need to close the zipper first—just clip the buckle and go,” he said.

Kolbeck also noted that the MX266 Split Front Chest Rig features Velcro® adaption points that permit affixing it to a plate carrier. “The plate carrier has to have its own Velcro® strips to permit this, but if it doesn’t we offer a separately sold adaption kit [RMPL144] to solve that problem,” he said.

Boasting compatibility with all Lindnerhof rigs, the MX266 is expected to swiftly emerge as a favourite among tactical operators, Kolbeck predicted. “It’ll come to be seen as an easy option to set up one ?s super-individualised and modular micro-rig,” he said. “And the fact that it can be attached to our MX234 Multi-Caliber Triple Front Panel and MX231 Panel Front means users can kill two birds with one stone.”

Meanwhile, the MX002 Rifle Magazine Pouch Single and MX098 Rifle Magazine Panel Triple are—like the MX266 Split Front Chest Rig—made from the company’s super-lightweight MX multiaxial laminate. They are nearly identical in design and features, except the MX002 holds only a single magazine whereas the MX098 holds three and is in a panel format (which makes it well-suited to fully equip the front of a plate carrier).

Both models allow users to swap out a mag faster thanks to their clean, low-profile contours—this attribute helps minimise potential interference with the user’s hand as it grabs for a fresh magazine. Also abetting quick, easy access to magazines is a special built-in tab (Alpha Tab 4.0). Additionally, the MX002 and MX098 mount via standard MOLLE/PALS fixation and come with extra front laser-cut slots for attaching additional gear.

“It’s imperative that the pouches you bring along on your mission make it easier to take hold of your magazines regardless of whether you’re operating in conditions that are dark or cold or wet or some combination of the three, but what ?s also lifesaving while you’re in action is always having best-possible access to your ammunition and weapon system,” Kolbeck offered. “And our new MX Rifle Magazine Pouches deliver on all counts. This is why I feel very confident in asserting that what we’ve created is a genuine instant classic in the category of rifle magazine pouches.”
