Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

The Escape Pro bivvy features Sympatex Reflexion performance fabric that reflects over 90 percent of your body heat, is windproof and waterproof, and provides a dry sleep with a 2.5 ply Sympatex laminate that is highly breathable. Expect it to take you down to about 40 deg F on its own. The Escape Pro bivvy includes a 24” (61cm) zipper side opening, a drawstring closure hood to cinch up on colder nights and taped seams to keep moisture out. It measures 31”x 84” (231cm x 78cm) and weighs 8.5 ounces (240g).  It will be available to ship February 2017.


ORSM – Mystery Ranch

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

Mystery Ranch has a whole slew of new commercial packs for Spring 2017, and I like quite a few of them, but if I had to pick just one, it’s the Coulee 40 which is a 40 liter bag based on the tried-and-true Tri-Zip design. However, you may notice that they’ve added stretch panels to the outside to accept items you want to access quickly, or let dry while you walk.

My second favorite is the Scapegoat 25 panel loader. Like many of MR’s commercial line, it is offered in a couple of colors which are great for the tactical user.

The Hip Monkey is a waist pack design.

The Invader is an attaché-style bag.

Kletterwerks has a few cool items in there was well.

ORSM – EnerPlex Jumper Quad+

Monday, August 8th, 2016

Power collection, storage and distribution in remote environments continues to be a major product category at OR.  The Jumper Quad+ from EnerPlex caught the eye of quite a few military users because it can be used to recharge AA and AAA batteries in the field as well as serving as a battery pack in its own right.

The Jumper Quad+ features a 5,000 mAh battery with a 2 Amp output via USB port.

The new G-Shock Mudmaster was designed specifically for use in a muddy environment. Obviously, its water resistant to 200m but they’ve also incorporated multiple gaskets on the pipes that guide buttons and shafts.  Additionally, it offers their twin sensor technology for the compass and thermometer.


ORSM – Granite Gear Crown2

Monday, August 8th, 2016

Granite Gear has launched an update to the VC 60 called the Crown2. It incorporates Granite Gear’s patent-pending, fully customizable RE-FIT hip belt. Conversely, the Crown2 features a fixed torso length, which is available in three torso sizes.

The Vapor-Current Mark 2 suspension system features a compression molded polypropylene frame sheet. This new system works in combination with the molded foam back panel, ventilation channels and durable laminated mesh to assist in airflow of heat and moisture, without shifting the pack’s center of gravity away from your back. The frame sheet can also be removed for further weight reduction.

This is a photo of the bag’s top closure. As you can see, it can be used without the removable lid.

• Dual density shoulder harness with load-lifter straps and removable sternum strap
• Removable lid with compartment featuring DWR treated zipper
• Hydration port and internal hydration sleeve
• Large side, stretch woven pockets
• 10mm webbing side and front compression straps
• Stretch mesh front pocket and tool loops
• Dual large hip belt pockets with DWR treated zippers to shelter gear from the elements
• Roll-top main compartment opening with centered dual strap and singular buckle for quick access and easy compression

Although it’s not designed as a military pack, it may be of interest to those of you loking for a lightweight pack for midrange loads up to 40 lbs or so. The colors make it an even easier choice if you don’t want to stick out one way or another; neither camo nor bright colors.

The Crown2 Short torso weighs 2 lbs, the Regular weighs 2 lbs 2 oz, and the Long weighs 2 lbs 4 oz, all without the lids attached. The Short fits torso lengths of 15-18 inches, the Regular fits torso lengths of 18-21 inches, and the Long fits torso lengths of 21-24 inches. All three torso sizes have a volume of 60 liters and retail at $199.99, in Spring 2017.

Tucked in an out-of-the-way booth space, Wazoo Survival Gear got their start several years ago, like so many others, by making 550 cord bracelets. However, they didn’t stop there. Instead, they have developed other products which promote the carriage and use of survival gear as EDC items. In time, we’ll show you some of those items, but we wanted to give you a glimpse of their latest project, the Cache Belt.

Coming soon to Kickstarter, the Cache Belt offers compartments filled with survival items which yiu can see listed below.

The back of the kits now have an exclusive kit map that lists all supplies and clearly shows where they are located in the kit.
