Not Your Typical Kit Bag

Monday, April 4th, 2011

The new Kit Bag from Hill People Gear is something a little different that what you might expect. Rather than a big, lumbering holdall, it is a compact Admin-style pouch that fits right up front where you can access it. Designed primarily for civilian applications, it interfaces well with a pack and surprise!, includes a pistol pouch. The 7.5” x 2” x 11” sized pouch is designed to carry a pistol with a weapon light mounted and a few other essentials without interfering with a hip belt. It can be worn attached to a pack’s shoulders traps or with its included H harness making it very stable, even when running. This can be a great piece of kit for someone who doesn’t want to carry in a holster or fanny pack and can also use the convenience of a fold open admin pouch to access items such as maps as well as other gear.

You will notice that they are partial to Kifaru (as are we). In fact, you may also notice some similarities with the Koala and that is because it was initially designed by the folks at Hill People Gear.

The Kit Bag is manufactured for Hill People Gear by First Spear meaning it is made from mil-spec materials and is Berry compliant. Available in Ranger Green, Foliage, and Coyote, to order yours, visit www.hillpeoplegear.com.

More on the Kifaru OTW Bag

Saturday, October 2nd, 2010

With all of the applications users are coming up with to use the OTW Bag, Kifaru probably should have named it after Felix the Cat’s Bag of Tricks. Since the Kifaru Fold Outs also fit in the bag it can be pre-configured for virtually any contingency.

If you’re still on the fence about buying one, we suggest you check out the Kifaru forums which have a significant amount of data and feedback from users.

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

During SHOT Show we wrote about the new Outside The Wire Bag from Kifaru Tactical. It is an excellent flat bottomed design with ample room to see the contents when open. Additionally, the OTW Bag features PALS webbing on the exterior and loop as well as elastic on the inside to accommodate the user’s needs. You can see all of the bag’s salient characteristics in this graphic provided by Kifaru. Available now in Black, Coyote, Foliage, OD, MultiCam and UCP. Camo patterns are the same price as monotones until 10 November.


Kifaru Modular Handwarmer Pouch

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Cool temps are just around the corner and it is time to start planning for Fall. Kifaru has had a handwarmer pouch on the hunting side for 12 years and has now released a tactical version. Although designed to pair with the Koala, it will also attach to anything with a PALS grid such as a plate or armor carrier via Kifaru’s Lock ‘n Load mounts. Built with a pack cloth shell, Rhinoskin lining and 6 oz. Combat Climashield insulation it will keep your digits warm to conduct intricate tasks. Whether you purchase one in Coyote, OD, Black, Foliage, UCP, or Multicam, the price is a steal.


Kifaru’s Outside The Wire Bag

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

It was great to see Kifaru Tactical exhibiting at SHOT Show. In addition to their currently offered products, Kifaru was quite bold about showing off their prototype Outside The Wire bag. Mel had told me about the concept over the phone a few months ago and I immediately thought of an old school doctor’s bag. Sure enough, when I saw it in person visions of Doc Adams from TV’s “Gunsmoke” immediately came to mind.

Kifaru Tactical's Outside The Wire bag

The advantages are obvious. It’s dimensions are perfect and a lot of work went into getting them right. It will also stand on its own without fall over whether empty or full. Additionally, the stiffened flaps open and close with ease and features dual, stowable handles. Finally, it is large enough so that you can see into it to find what you are looking for.

The Kifaru Koala

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

Patrick Smith, owner of Kifaru was kind enough to give us a quick, impromptu demonstration of the new Koala. It is extremely versatile, allowing the wearer to rapidly access a handgun yet retain the outward appearance of just another hiker or man on the street.
