MATBOCK Monday – Medical Backdraft

Monday, June 15th, 2020

Good morning and Happy MATBOCK Monday,

Developed in coordination with some of the leading medics and combat first responders, the MATBOCK Backdraft is for small teams with relatively quick access to higher levels of care. The unit mounts on the back of the plate carrier via MATBOCK Ghost Tabs and is split into 2 separate removable pouches that are held in place via Velcro. The unit was designed to split medical equipment between bleeding and airway and is run in this setup by different units.

The bottom of each pouch is attached to an adjustable lanyard that connects to the side panel of the plate carrier. When the operator requires the contents of one of the pouches, he or she simply pulls the lanyard, releasing that pouch.

Don’t forget to tune in on Monday at 4:30 PM EST as Jim and Casey conduct a live demonstration of the Medical Backdraft and answer all of your questions.

Comp-Tac Releases New Hybrid AIWB Pouch to Complement Appendix Lineup

Tuesday, June 9th, 2020

HOUSTON, June 3, 2020 – Comp-Tac® recently released the eV2™ Magazine Pouch, a new inside-the-waistband, hybrid mag pouch, for customers who want to carry a spare mag in the appendix position.

This hybrid pouch is made with a top-grain, cowhide leather backing and a Kydex® shell that holds the magazine. The pouch attaches to the belt with a nylon clip that is ride-height adjustable, allowing the user to set the height of the magazine in relation to their belt. The magazine pouch is also tuckable to allow the shirt to be tucked in over the magazine for deep concealment.

Features of the eV2 Mag include:
– Top-grain cowhide leather
– Kydex body
– Nylon clip is ride-height adjustable and tuckable
– Index cut on leather and Kydex for improved draw capabilities
– Designed specifically for carrying compact magazines
– Created for wear in the appendix region for quick access

“Appendix carry has become more and more popular as the sizes of guns have gotten smaller,” explained Gordon Carrell, Comp-Tac general manager. “Many of our customers who conceal carry also like to carry a spare magazine. While many individuals can drop a spare mag in a pocket, the number of EDC items is on the rise. Having a magazine pouch helps to balance the load of wallet, flashlight, medical kit, keys, personal items, etc. The eV2 Mag compliments our popular eV2 and eV2 Max holsters, giving users the ability to keep all their ‘hardware’ up front for easy access.”
