Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Whether you’re out to be the Grey Man or just looking for something cool to wear off-duty, Mission Workshop’s new Arkiv System Bags might be just the thing for you. Some have called the system it a new version of MOLLE but we’ll just call it what it is, a pocket attachment system.

Kifaru Cargo Panel Lets MOLLE Carry Odd Sized Loads

Monday, March 12th, 2012

There are a couple of solutions out there for use with both ALICE and MOLLE that modify the frames with a large PALS field and allow them to be configured with any combination of pouches. But recently some readers came to me looking to carry odd sized loads with their MOLLE frames. My immediate suggestion was the Kifaru Cargo Panel that came out last year. Originally intended as an accessory specifically for Kifaru packs, they immediately recognized that the long beaver-tail design could be used elsewhere.

If you have any doubts to the versatility of the Cargo Panel, this photo showing it carrying an air compressor should shake the notion. The CP attaches to the frame and cradles your load. How closely it rides against the frame is adjustable and the load can stick out the sides or top with no problems.

Made in USA! from 1000D Cordura to stand up to the wear and tear it is going to see while being used to pack mule gear. It can be had in a variety of colors, contact Kifaru for availability because I know they can accommodate special requests on a case-by-case basis.

Tree-Go IZLID Pouch

Monday, March 12th, 2012

MATBOCK LLC is a burgeoning company that you will hear lots more of in the future. After our article the other day on the BE Meyers IZLID, we thought it would be a capital idea to introduce our readers to MATBOCK for a great option for actually carrying the thing. Remember, an IZLID resembles maybe a flashlight or a light saber, so some JTACs use slap flare pouches but this is WAY better. Rather than some makeshift, it’s actually designed for use with the IZLID and allows the user to quickly place it into action. You pull up on the IZLID to pull it from the pouch and then the cap falls free. When it’s in its pouch the bungeed cap keeps tension on the IZLID, holding it in place. Simple.

The IZLID is currently available in three flavors; 200P, 1000 and Ultra. MATBOCK offers a pouches for the 1000 which is currently the workhorse. They are working with BE Meyers on a solution for the Ultra.

The IZLID pouch is available with two attachment systems. One is Velcro and designed to fit under the cummerbund flap at the front of the armor. The other version is naturally, MOLLE compatible. Available in Desert Digital, MultiCam, UCP and Coyote from 500D Cordura. Made in USA!

High Ground ALICE Frame Modular Panel

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

Despite its propensity for falling apart, the ALICE frame just won’t go away. Rather, it remains popular due to its ability to accept a wide variety of irregular loads becoming a modern day pack board. High Ground recognized its adaptability and decided to make it MOLLE compatible as well. They’ve created a new modular panel that attaches to the frame making even more useful for a variety of applications.

Off the Grid Concepts – Custom Kydex

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

Off the Grid Concepts, another fine purveyor of custom kydex mag pouches and holsters, has a new “dual mounting option” mag pouch that carries one rifle magazine and one pistol magazine. Check them out on Facebook or at their website to see some of their kit or see what they come up with when they come up with it. One of their mottos is, “If you own it we can holster it.” Their website says they make apparel and outdoor gear, but apparently it’s not up yet.

War Sport Thermal Rail Cover

Monday, November 28th, 2011

At the request of military personnel, War Sport Inc. has put together a rail cover for cold weather operations. Its purpose is simple, to keep the cold from transferring from a weapon into the fingers and wrist, especially from aluminum rails, which don’t shed cold well. WSI’s specialty is actually thermal cloaking (such as with their Barrel Sock, also originally built at the request of a specific organization, and the Suppressor Sock). They used their thermal material and expertise to make such a rail cover work a little better, basically inverting it so the thermal cloth is pointed upward, guarded by a rugged but lightweight 330 Cordura wrap. It reflects heat back into the hand, though not enough to create much of a signature and does reduce the visibility of rail temperature.

The rail cover is not specifically designed to mitigate the weapon’s thermal signature, though it will do so by virtue of its construction. Initial evaluations showed it reduces measured rail temperature by approximately 20 degrees. Obviously, it can be used in conjunction with the Suppressor and Barrel Socks to reduce overall signature.

The rail cover is available with and without MOLLE points, and in the latter case will be available in vertical strips, lateral strips or a mix of the two. (The MOLLE points were added as an option for those who might want to run brush or natural camo through them, or perhaps to throw a small pouch on there if they’re going to be lying prone for a long period of time. It’s obviously not to hang modular pouches off of while you’re busting brush, or running CQB/MOUT operations—don’t read more into it than there is.)

They’ll have it in ATACS UA, the new ATACS FG, Woodland, Coyote, Black, etc. The most likely market for these will be cold weather shooters, hunters and similar commercial applications, though LEOs and military personnel may like it as well.

The thermal rail cover with MOLLE weighs in at 3.9 oz., the one without MOLLE just under 3. Contact War Sport on their website or on Facebook for more information.
