Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

MOSQUITO Modular Belt System

The MOSQUITO modular belt system is an extremely versatile platform – just like de Havilland’s ‘Wooden Wonder’ from WWII. It works well in both low-profile and heavy-load configurations and is compatible with accessory hip and drop leg panels.

-Made of proprietary laminate, stiffened, Velcro loop lined
-Designed to work as a belt sleeve for MUSTANG rescue / gun belt, will fit most standard rescue belts
-Laser cut PALS slots interchanging with vertical openings on the sides allow for user-preferred equipment attachment options for holster, blade etc.
-Additional stability can be achieved by using the MOSQUITO modular belt sleeve together with the MUSTANG inner belt
-Low profile Y-style suspenders for use under armor available
-Detachable stiffened hip panels available in two lengths, long panel allows direct mounting of Safariland’s® 3-hole system pistol holsters
-High ride drop leg panels available
* Please note: inner belt, hip panels and suspenders are sold separately.

Speed Reload Pouches

Open top rifle magazine pouch, designed for speed reloads but with secure magazine carry at the same time. The special internal material, combined with a limited-size top opening and tension-adjusting elastic cord, prevents the magazine from popping out if it gets snagged.

Just like their rifle pouch, the pistol / SMG pouch is designed for speed reloads but with secure magazine carry at the same time. The special internal material, combined with tension-adjusting elastic cord, prevents the magazine from popping out if it gets snagged.

Strike – Hold! Covers The Jerven Fjellduken

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

Norway’s Jerven Fjellduken has been described elsewhere as a “space blanket on steroids.” Strike-Hold! recently published a write up on the Mountain Tarp which is constructed from a non-breathable, aluminum-lined water and wind-proof material. Available in 5 different models, it can be used as a shelter or sleeping bag.

The coolest thing about the Fjellduken is its specialized camo pattern. As you can see, it’s well suited to Norway’s mountainous terrain.

A Low Cost UAS?

Sunday, August 29th, 2010

Strike Hold! caught wind of a $15k vertical lift Unmanned Aerial System manufactured in China. Amazingly, this product was designed for airsoft. It is controlled by GPS, and features electric motors for quiet flight and delivers streaming video back to the hand-held remote unit.

This is the same kind of stuff we were alluding to in our recent article on Disruptive Technologies. However, since both good and bad guys have been modifying what are essentially remote control toys for some time to conduct reconnaissance then this new product doesn’t really fit the definition of a true disruptive capability. What it does mean, is that a lot more folks will have access to low-cost, purpose built unmanned aerial systems. Aside from the obvious issue of having an enemy with similar reconnaissance capabilities as us, there are also airspace issues to consider. And as these commercial systems become more pervasive, the issue will be more prevalent. Think about being on a patrol and trying to figure out if it is one of ours. Think about safety of flight issues.

What’s the Deal with Digital?

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

Over the weekend, Strike Hold! published a great article (Making Sense of Digital Camo) discussing the “digital phenomenon” sweeping the camo world. What’s it all mean? Many have been using the term digital interchangeably with pixelated and nothing could be further from the truth. After all, the pixel designs are just a means to make the pattern easier to deal with during the design and printing phases. Squares are much easier to register than irregular shapes. On the other extreme is MultiCam which looks to be an old school analog pattern but was developed with computer aid design software and a lot of hard work.

Here’s a tip, watch for fractal camo to be the next big thing, taking over from the pixelated patterns that have dominated as of late. Still developed with the aid of computers, fractal patterns more closely mimic nature.
