Sneak Peek – Large Becker Patrol Pack from Bongo Gear

Tuesday, July 9th, 2024

Bongo Gear reports that the Large Becker Patrol Pack (LBPP) has completed prototyping and field testing and it is now in production. It goes on sale tomorrow, 10 July in Green and Tigerstripe.

Bongo Gear’s owner Tom G has worked with Ethan Becker, the originator of the Becker Patrol Pack and several knife designs, to produce a modern version of the famous pack and Ethan has approved this new design.

The LBPP was a project Tom decided to take on after multiple requests regular BPPs users who required more capacity. The answer was to go with a larger, external-frame version of the BPP with a few more outside pouches with a goal of 65 liters / 90 lbs capacity.

He related to SSD, “I was averse to adding more outside pouches because I’ve read studies which suggest five or six places is about the maximum for most people for remembering where things are. I know from experience too many pockets/pouches on a pack can be a bad thing.”

He found that his concerns weren’t an issue with the LBPP considering the lid registers as a separate entity while the main body, with its combination of buckled and zippered pouches, categorizes things into smaller groups (buckled and zippered) making it easier to remember what’s where.

Above you can see the new LBPP side-by-side with the current Mk II and the MOLLE 4000 while below is a great comparison of the two BPP models.

The LBPP will be supplied with an internal frame sheet and end-users can set it up with their preferred external frame. Tom says this is because, just like favorite flavors of ice cream, people have different favorite external frames. The pack can utilize legacy ALICE frames, the Marine Pack frame / MOLLE 4000 ruck frame (DEI 1606-MC), and the newer DEI 1622 Arch frame, among others.

Blue Force Gear Limited Edition – VCAS Tiger Stripe Sling

Wednesday, February 14th, 2024

Introducing the Limited Edition VCAS GTS Sling – a fusion of a historical camo pattern with an iconic weapon sling design. This exclusive two-point, quick-adjustment sling in GTS (Green Tiger Stripe) pattern is brought to you by TFBTV host, James Reeves, and Blue Force Gear. “Tiger Stripe is a functional and interesting pattern, which also happens to be timeless.”, stated Reeves, while attending SHOT Show 2024. “…aesthetically pleasing camo in spite of the fact that it was never formally adopted by the US military.”

Reeves also adds a dose of history here, “…It was so effective that military advisors and special operations units in Vietnam, sourced the pattern locally and unofficially adopted it themselves.” Talk about resourcefulness.

“In that way, the pattern is itself an homage to ingenuity and improvisation. When I approached BFG about making the Vickers sling in the pattern, it was because the origins of Tiger Stripe are in alignment with BFG’s philosophy- Always Better. Plus, I selfishly wanted the best sling in the world, in one of the best camo patterns ever devised.” -James Reeves, TFBTV.

Only available at and by subscribing to the email notice of their release, there are limited quantities, so get them while you can. 500 are being produced in VCAS and VCAS push button slings.  Take advantage and own a tribute piece of military history, blending the legacy of the Green Tiger Stripe pattern, with the renowned Vickers Sling.
