Mission Spec Gains Contracts From Covert Agencies By Adding Denim Line

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Beginning early next quarter, Mission Spec, LLC™ (KS) will be adding denim to their existing Essentials Only Carrier™ (EOC) and Shoulder Savers™ product lines after receiving requests from “multiple covert agencies”. The requests simply stated the need for an ultra low-profile and light-weight armor option that could easily “disappear” on agents during covert or undercover tasking.


“We had the ultra low-profile and light-weight requirements already figured out with our EOC,” says Brent Keltner with Mission Spec. “The only thing left was deciding on the best pattern and texture to use for the covert nature of the request.”


It is unknown if Mission Spec will be making the new denim line available for commercial release.

Mission Spec is also seeking the services of Chuck Norris as the new spokesperson for all Mission Spec gear. This is the result of an email poll sent to all Mission Spec customers asking who they would like to see as the new spokesperson. While Mr. Norris was not a selectable option for the poll, Norris won by an astounding 91% via the write-in field. “We listen to our customers and they know what they want,” said Keltner when asked for the reason behind seeking the new spokesperson.

Mission Spec Releases New Light Weight Plate Carrier

Saturday, December 7th, 2013

Mission Spec is happy to announce the release of their new plate carrier. The Essentials Only Carrier (EOC) is a light weight (23 ounces), low profile solution for those seeking a minimalistically designed armor carrier.


The EOC was designed to fit two medium sized shooters cut SAPI armor plates. The 1000 Denier Cordura constructed carrier utilizes ITW Nexus acetal polymer buckles. All components are nIR treated and/or compliant (excluding black). All design, testing, and manufacturing was performed in the United States.

The rear plate bag can be independently raised to offer better rear armor protection to a wider range of users. Patterned (ie: MultiCam) EOCs include pattern matching PALS webbing, side straps, and outward facing loop. Spacer (air) mesh faces the user on both the front and rear to help wick moister away while also improving airflow. The low profile design allows the EOC to be concealed under a light jacket for undercover uses.

The EOC is fully compatible with DKX Max III Polyethylene armor (shooters cut) available at


To compliment the release of the EOC, Mission Spec has also released their Shoulder Savers. Designed specifically to be used with the EOC however the Shoulder Savers can be used with nearly any plate carrier that utilizes 2″ wide (or less) shoulder straps. Communication cables and hydration tubes can also be routed and secured via the Shoulder Savers.

Both the EOC and Shoulder Savers were scheduled to be released in Black, Coyote, and MultiCam. However, an unforeseen shipping mishap resulted in the Coyote being lost. At release, Black and MultiCam are ready to ship immediately with the Coyote counterpart approximately one week from completing production. Future patterns to be released; Kryptek and M81 Woodland.
