MM & EMDOM’s New KitMat

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

When rolled the KitMat takes up no more space than an issue GI cleaning kit but offers so much more. When unfolded, the KitMat integrates two pouches for maintenance tools, a cleaning mat and an innovative feature to secure small parts during maintenance to ensure they won’t be misplaced. The mat measures 24″ x 19″ and the entire KitMat is manufactured from 1000D Cordura. At one end are two pouches for cleaning tools as well as the Velcro parts retention area. At the other end is an elastic cord used to secure the KitMat for storage.

As you can see, when rolled up for stowage, the KitMat is just a little larger than a 30 round magazine.

E-MM KitMat
Unlike other cleaning kits, it has an integral cleaning mat. You don’t always have the advantage of a clean table or workbench to clean your weapon so this feature is much appreciated.

The KitMat has an ingenious feature that secures small parts under strips of Velcro.

The KitMat is a well thought out addition to any shooters range bag and available in UCP, Foliage Green, Black, and Sewer Green. However, I personally would not recommend the Black as so many weapon parts are also Black and any advantage the cleaning mat offers in keeping track of your parts will be offset by the lack of contrast. To order contact EMDOM.

MM / Emdom Collaborate on Ammo SAC

Wednesday, August 6th, 2008

Conceived by MM, he wanted an alternative to both wasteful ammunition packaging of cardboard and foam as well as the GI ammo can so he came up with the Ammo SAC (Soft Ammo Can). Many shooters carry boxed ammo to the range and then have to deal with all of the trash amassed as ammo is broken down. On many ranges there are no accommodations for trash and what you pack in, you have to pack out. The most common alternative is the surplus ammo can which is handy, but is made of metal and the loose rounds rattle around inside. The other down side is that they take up a lot of storage space when not being used. The Ammo SAC on the other hand, is a handy way to organize and transport loose rounds and it folds flat for storage.


Many shooters already use a variety of improvised methods to carry loose ammo, but they are often expedient solutions and fall apart after a couple of uses. The Ammo Sac’s body is manufactured from 500D Cordura to keep down weight and the bottom is reinforced with 1000D Cordura. It also features wrap around handles, a tuck away flap and drawstring to keep the contents inside where they belong, and a small pocket with clear window on the side to carry a loading device as well as a label.


The Ammo SAC is currently available in two sizes, the large measures approximately 8.5″ long x 6.5″ wide x 7.5″ tall and has room for the contents of a large .50 cal ammo can (11.5″ x 7″ x 6″), or at least 1000 rounds of 5.56 mm and the small Ammo SAC measures approximately 7″ long x 5″ wide x 6″ tall. It can hold the contents of a standard .30 cal ammo can (10″ x 7″ x 3″), or at least 750 rounds of 5.56 mm.

The Ammo SAC is available in Coyote Brown, and Foliage Green.
