Crye Precision Announces R-SERIES Officially Available

Friday, February 16th, 2024

Brooklyn, NY – February 16, 2024– Crye Precision®, one of the leading suppliers of uniforms and personal equipment to the military, law enforcement and public safety markets, has announced the new R-SERIES™, a highly configurable, modular, and scalable system is now available for purchase through the company’s website. 

The R-SERIES™, the next evolution of the JPC 2.0™, is a highly tuned suite of load carriage innovations that strikes the nearly impossible balance between weight, durability, integration, modularity, versatility, and refinement. It was developed in collaboration with Special Operations Forces to address their unique and diverse requirements.

With the JPC R-SERIES™ at its core, the R-SERIES™ addresses the warfighter’s need to tailor the system to a constantly shifting mission profile. The design considers current cable routing requirements, various plate sizes and types, increase load carriage and additional extensive collaborations with end-user feedback.

A full suite of 18 components allow you to build four different configurations (ASSAULT, JUMP, RECCE, and PACK).  ASSAULT configuration is a mission-ready plate carrier with the JPC R-SERIES™ as the foundation.  The R-SERIES™ M4 JUMP FLAP can be removed, connected to the R-SERIES™ HARNESS ADAPTER and HARNESS to make a jumpable chest rig that can carry up to six, 30-round M4 mags.  Add the R-SERIES™ ZIP-ON PACK and ADAPTER and you now have a lightweight plate carrier.  Remove the front flap to align the PACK configuration.

These versatile arrangements can all be outfitted with an array of R-SERIES™ accessories that increase comfort and can accommodate new comms units, like the PRC-163 radio. These accessories can be mounted beside or below the front and back panels, furthering adding to the modularity of the series, and ensuring the load is more streamlined.

In addition to the accommodation of heavier loads and plate sizes, the new integrated cable management is designed to channel throughout the system to help keep everything streamlined.

“The R-SERIES™ started with asking our end users what they wanted changed from the JPC 2.0 and what they told us needed very little alteration,” stated Crye Precision Director of Marketing, Ernesto Rodriguez. “They had new load carriage and cable management requirements that needed to be addressed, along with the modularity created for the AVS™ system.  The R-SERIES™ truly defines mission specific scalability.”

Available now through, the new R-Series comes in MULTICAM®, Ranger Green, Coyote, and Black.

SIMONE Travel Belt from Station IX

Unlike other travel belts on the market, the SIMONE doesn’t use Velcro or a zipper to retain the items secreted within the belt, but rather relies on Spandex to keep them secure. This allows the wearer to access the items without removing the belt, with full 360 deg access.

Sneak Peek – MedSled by Spiritus Systems

Monday, February 5th, 2024

Diring SHOT Show, Spiritus Systems showed us something they had developed. Instead of introducing a whole IFAK pouch, they decided to make a new insert for existing pouches like their Medium GP pouch. But they tell us, it can be stored other places like in vehicles.

The construction has a little bit of stretch to keep everything secure inside the pouch and the ripcord can be configured for vertical or horizontal pull.

It was designed to fit most items except for a tourniquet and EMT shears but they’ve found most people keep those handy, outside their IFAKs.

At any rate, it makes a nice tray that holds equipment. It comes with a grid and dot system along with shock cords and tabs to set it up however you want.
