Grey Ghost Gear makes an IMPACT with their latest backpack design

Grey Ghost Gear Impact 24 Backpack

 

Wallace, ID – Grey Ghost Gear is revealing a new product to join their already diverse lineup of backpacks: the Impact 24.

Having designed a plethora of bags and backpacks in all shapes and sizes with specific civilian, Law Enforcement, and military roles in mind, it goes without saying that Grey Ghost Gear has a solid product offering already. Which begs the question: why a new backpack and what does it do that the other bags did not?

The answers lie with Grey Ghost’s own Senior Product Designer, who made the bag when he was commuting via bike every day. “I needed a more vertical backpack with a specific pocket configuration that I had not seen yet in any of our existing bags. I kept experimenting with tiered exterior pockets for all the essentials I needed in an average 24-hour period like my phone, wallet & keys, etc.… along with space for bike tools, patch kit and an extra tube in case of a flat. Most importantly, I wanted to truncate the main compartment in favor of a third exterior pocket at the bottom with maximum depth,” said Stephen Crowe, the designer behind Impact 24. Originally intended to house premade meals, this bottom pocket is spacious enough for cameras, small drones and other sensitive items that would otherwise get crushed if tossed into the main compartment with other items.”

When the rest of the team at GGG saw the prototype, it was unanimous that it needed to join the ranks of Grey Ghost’s other urban-minded bags like the Gypsy or the Scarab. The main compartment of the Impact 24 is still roomy, despite the bottom wall that partitions it from the bottom pocket. Thanks to its structured walls, there’s plenty of protection for a larger drone, camera equipment, or a change of clothes. What really stands out are the organizational subtleties that were sprinkled in the right spots. There’s a laptop sleeve with an adjustable buckle, which is pretty standard these days. Flanking both sides however, are longer zippered pockets that are perfect for charging cords, snacks, or a couple wrenches. The front wall has a zippered mesh pocket, giving you more room for the aforementioned items.

Being constructed of Rip-Stop Nylon and 500-D Cordura® kept the bag lightweight and well balanced, perfect for anyone on the move; something you will appreciate if you ride your bicycle, motorcycle, skateboard or scooter to work. The structure and organized nooks and crannies are an immediate favorite for photographers and drone operators, including GGG’s own media department. “Being able to stow a small drone like a Mavic Pro in the bottom pocket, so that larger and heavier camera equipment can go into the main compartment, along with dedicated pockets for all the batteries, memory cards, power cords, docks, and lenses. “It really makes remote sessions easier without having to lug multiple cases or bags out into the field,” says Manuel Gutierrez, Grey Ghost’s wiz behind the lens.

The exterior of the Impact 24 has four strings of daisy chain loops that line the left and right sides and parallel the front pockets. Daisy chains are your friend, especially if you ever need to clip or lash extra gear to your pack using carabiners, webbing straps or cordage. You can hang almost anything from a backpack using a system like this, from solar power chargers to a wet coat or a tarp. Finally, a worthy host for your novelty carabiner collection!

The back of the Impact 24 has thick mesh-lined padding to ensure for a comfortable all-day ride without the infamous sweat stain down your back. The mesh encourages ample airflow to the back as well as the underside of the adjustable shoulder straps, making the Impact 24 a favorite daily commuter.

The Impact 24 backpack is available now for preorder on GGG’s website for a limited introductory price of $105. Available in Black/Black Diamond, Wolf Grey/Black Diamond and Olive/Black Diamond color combinations, the Impact 24 has an MSRP of $175. “We wanted to literally make an Impact in the backpack market with the announcement of this new bag design” said Grey Ghost Gear CEO, Casey Ingels. “It checks a lot of boxes that we have heard from many of our off-duty and covert end users, as well as our own team members. We’re excited to see this bag out in the wild.”

New Slide Patterns from Grey Ghost Precision

Tuesday, January 15th, 2019

V3V4-slides-2

Wallace, ID – Grey Ghost Precision is excited to announce that they have added two additional slide patterns to their GGP-19 and GGP-17 aftermarket Glock slide product line.

The new additions are simply called the V3 and V4, and while they share the same precision engineering and tightened critical tolerances of their predecessors the V1 and V2… they are offering something new to the optics-loving crowd. The V3 and V4 slides feature a hybrid MRDS cut. Previously the V1 and V2 slides were only cut and tapped for mounting the Trijicon RMR. However the V3 and V4 slides now feature a modified optic footprint to accommodate the slightly larger Leupold DeltaPoint Pro. Still want to mount your trusty Trijicon RMR? As it turns out, the DPP and RMR share a similar front profile without the bolt patterns intersecting each other. The primary difference in the footprints are overall length, but GGP resolved this with an ingenious aluminum shim plate for use with the shorter RMR. The result is dual compatibility right out of the box, without the need for bulky adapter plates that raise the optic further above the bore axis. Note: GGP provides three pairs of screws for mounting either the Leupold DPP, Trijicon RMR, or the G10 RMR cover plate (for you iron sight purists). Using the factory-length screws that come with your optic of choice will not install correctly.

V3V4-slides-1

As if the optics feature wasn’t enough, the new patterns on the V3 and V4 are worth attention as well. At a quick glance, GGP’s V3 slide would seem to be standard angled serrations. However upon further inspection, the depth of the serrations taper inwards as the cut goes up the slide. This gives you a much more aggressive grip near the top of the slide for press checks and malfunction clearing drills, especially under sweaty, muddy, or bloody conditions. The top of the V3 has shallow cuts that also aid in press checks, while mimicking the design on top of the GGP Glock Barrels.

For the V4 slides, they’ve designed a studded micro-scale texture that provides an unmatched level of frictional grip in any direction of pull. Reminiscent of their V2 slide with “geoscales,” however this pattern is smaller and the little studs within each individual scale provide a much higher level of frictional grip in leu of traditional serrations. The V4 also has a top window cutout presumably for weight balance.

Johnny PMAGs Available Through Grey Ghost

Friday, August 30th, 2013

During SHOT Show Drake Clark reached me about helping out with an upcoming project. John Noveske had just passed away and Magpul was going to commit to a run of special “Johnny” PMAGs to raise money for his family. He asked if I would help. While I had only met John once through the introduction of Stickman, we had quite a few friends in common. And, I appreciated his hard work and innovation. “Sure,” I told Drake, “count me in!” Now, I know some of you guys are asking yourselves why the family of a guy who owned a business would need money. Well, my answer is simple. It’s for his kids. Very, very few small business owners are rich, or even well off. They work insane hours and put everything extra back into the business. And now, in the case of Noveske, John, the creative force behind the brand, is gone. It will never be the same and the lives of his kids will never be the same. As a father and small business owner, I can tell you, none of this was lost on me. It’s the reason I agreed to be a part of this and a reason I purchased some of these magazines when they were first available.

Now mind you, all of this planning for the Johnny mag was going on during the panic of 2013. Despite this, Magpul came through with the initial push which they offered in conjunction with Noveske. And then, another tragedy struck, and a similar magazine-based fundraising campaign came along. And during that period, in late Spring, 300 Johnny PMAGs showed up at my door. When I was planning to start this fundraising effort, I foolishly thought I could offer them through PayPal, but I soon found out that wasn’t possible. Then, eBay was a bust. SSD has a long reach but what we don’t have is a web store. Once the other fundraising effort ended I reached out to my friends at Grey Ghost Gear and they thankfully agreed to handle the sales aspect of this effort.

If you missed out on the initial run of Johnny mags, Grey Ghost has just under 300 (they are selling already). The Johnny PMAG is a Magpul GEN M2 30 round PMAG designed for 5.56×45 NATO and .223 Remington AR15/ M4 platform weapons. This memorial magazine includes the Noveske “Flaming Pig” on one side, and the Noveske logo on the flip side.
