Hill People Gear Expands HPG Mobility Lineup with Universal Seat Back

Sunday, February 23rd, 2020

Hill People Gear is expanding its HPG Mobility lineup of overland and off road products with the Universal Seat Back. Although there are a few other seat backs on the market, HPG Mobility’s offering is unique in a couple of ways.

Thanks to its manufacturing partnership with First Spear, Hill People Gear has access to First Spear’s proprietary 6/12 fabric. The 6/12 fabric allows for the entirety of the seat back to accept both MOLLE and Velcro backed pouches for maximum user configurability.

Not all car seat backs are completely flat from bottom to top – most of them curve inwards to allow for more passenger legroom. The HPG Mobility seat back contains an aluminum stay that can be bent to your car’s specific seatback curve. This tucks whatever is mounted on the Universal Seat Back into that inwards curve, reclaiming valuable passenger legroom.

There are a variety of tabs bar tacked into the perimeter of the Universal Seatback that are sized to accommodate a variety of pack components from the Hill People Gear lineup such as the capture flap and pack bucket.

The HPG Mobility Universal Seat Back will attach to just about any seat. There are two bottom straps designed to be girth hitched around any hard point that can be found underneath the seat and the generously sized top strap clips around the headrest area. Removing the seat back is as easy as unclipping three side release buckles. There is also an extra car kit available for folks who want to easily switch a single seat back between multiple vehicles. The extra car kit consists of a spare pair of bottom straps as girth hitching them underneath the seat is the difficult and time consuming part of mounting the Universal Seat Back. Once the bottom straps are installed, switching cars is as easy as unclipping from one car and clipping into the next one.

Hill People Gear is also releasing it’s popular Velcro backed Tool Roll and 58 Pouch in new colors for use on the HPG Mobility Universal Seat Back.

High Speed Gear Products Receive NTOA Recommendations

Monday, February 17th, 2020

SWANSBORO, N.C., Feb. 18, 2020 – High Speed Gear®, maker of Battle-Proven Tactical Gear™, recently received nine product recommendations in the National Tactical Officers Association’s “Member Tested and Recommended” program.

Select law enforcement officers thoroughly tested the Kydex® Tourniquet TACO® (4.74), Kydex Handcuff TACO (4.45), Operator Belt (4.55), Bleeder/Blowout Pouch (4.51), Double Decker® TACO – Covered (4.03), Mag-Net Dump Pouch V2 (4.46), Gas Mask Pouch V2 (4.41), Duty Flash Bang TACO (4.25), and the Ambidextrous Multipurpose Pouch (4.46) and rated them in the MTR’s two highest tiers. Each product was evaluated by four officers and graded on a variety of categories, including design, performance, quality, durability and versatility, with each group of officers’ scores averaged into the ratings listed above.

The MTR program ranks products as “standard” (rating from 3.00 to 3.99), “silver” (from 4.00 to 4.49) and “gold” (from 4.50 to 5.00). NTOA members can view the full reviews and scores in the Member Tested and Recommended database.

“I use this belt by running the Velcro® belt through my belt loops and then attaching the Operator Belt on top of it,” said an officer who rated the Operator Belt an overall 4.94. “It rides snugly and is very comfortable. The COBRA D-ring buckle is very sturdy and is overkill (in a good way). For those who like a low-profile belt, this is really good and is the best such belt I have tried. I intend to use it for general day-to-day investigative work and will keep my padded belt for tactical situations.

“The Bleeder/Blowout Pouch is another item that I have added to my kit,” stated one officer, who gave the Bleeder a perfect 5.00 rating. “I use the blowout pouch in conjunction with an IFAK and the Kydex Tourniquet Pouch. I really like being able to have my shears secured and easily accessible and having a place designed to hold them. You can mount this on a belt system or on your MOLLE gear, making it a must have in my opinion for anyone needing to carry medical supplies. I can always find a use for this pouch no matter what the task is.”

Every HSGI® product submitted to the MTR for review not only passed for recommendation but also ranked highly. Additionally, Comp-Tac®, a division of HSGI, also received product recommendations from the MTR program, which will be announced shortly.

“We are incredibly honored to have so many products rated so highly by our law enforcement officers,” said Allison Mitchum, HSGI director of sales and marketing. “We strive to create the best gear possible for our customers and are privileged to serve so many who serve.”
