HSGI – M24P Day Pack

Monday, September 9th, 2013


High Speed Gear has introduced their brand-new M24P Day Pack. They simplified and refined the design of the M24P from their original “moose” pack line, providing a basic but tough pack that meets the needs of professionals in law enforcement and military and civilians alike. The M24P is large enough for sustainment gear, extra ammunition, medical supplies, and other gear for a rapid deployment, yet small enough to provide versatile storage options. The MP24 is constructed of 1000 Denier nylon, and features padded shoulder straps. The internal compartment has two large mesh pockets that can fit a large armor plate. The M24P is available both with and without exterior PALS webbing, and in solid colors and camouflage patterns. The packs will be sold exclusively through SKD Tactical for a limited time.

Costa Leg Rig Reviewed

Monday, October 1st, 2012


Last week, Costa Ludus released their custom leg rig. Built by High Speed Gear Inc, it incorporates their TACO mag pouches mounted to a platform mounted to the belt via two 1″ straps along with a single leg strap.

Now consider this. Costa Ludus has 100 of these in stock and they sold out in less than 1 hour. When Chris Costa released his pistol, it sold out in 5 minutes and before that he had sold out a 125 custom run gun with LaRue in less than 24 hours. Those rifles were going for about $2800 a piece. You can poopoo Costa or any other tactical trainer for that manner, but when I see numbers like that, I sit up and take notice. So does industry and so should you. If anything, you need to consider why, regardless of how you feel about him.

The Gear Locker conducted a review of the product which you can read here.

As we understand it, Costa Ludus is working on a resupply. When this happens they will be available at We’ve also heard there should be some solid color versions to go along with MultiCam.

HSGI’s Taco goes OCONUS with Coalition Troops

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

The various forms of HSGI’s Taco, arguably the most versatile mag pouch on the market, are beginning to spread abroad. A prominent coalition partner just bought a couple thousand or more of them for one of their special operations units and HSGI recently shipped a bunch off to the US Border Patrol to use on duty. Congratulations Gene, and all of HSGI — not for the big sale, but for building something so effective and reliable it is an honest asset to the boys and girls on the ground.
