Sneaky Bags SPYDER

The SPYDER Covert Rifle Bag, from Sneaky Bags, is now available. This bag has a similar discreet shape to the larger Covert Rifle Bags but it is scaled down to fit SBRs with an overall length of 27″ or less in the main storage compartment. The main compartment also features a padded divider that can be used to store additional magazines.


There are two smaller compartments on the front of the SPYDER that feature internal organization features like zippered mesh pockets, loop material, and PALS webbing for mounting hook or MOLLE backed pouches.

The initial released of the SPYDER is a somewhat limited soft-launch. Only Black and Medium Navy are available at this time. Other colors will be available soon. Check out the SPYDER from Sneaky Bags.

The New and Improved TACO

HSGI improved taco

HSGI’s TACO magazine pouches are already pretty good. I use them on my MOLLE belt so I can switch easily between AKs and ARs without much fuss. These improvements are subtle but welcomed.

From HSGI…

SWANSBORO, NC –  26AUG2014 – High Speed Gear is pleased to announce of an improvement to our TACO® line of pouches.  All TACO® pouches that utilize an injected molded bracket will have the following improvements implemented.

  • Each bracket is now 1/8th inch longer creating higher feed ramps for easier indexing and reinsertion of magazines.
  •  Increased the size of and beveled the eye hole for easier tension adjustment.
  • Adjusted the proportion of all edges and corners

The bracket is one of the most crucial and unique parts of our TACO® pouches.  It keeps the pouch open when empty and allows the user to index magazines for easy reinsertion.  By improving the bracket, it will allow for improved performance. Implementation was made across the board and the polymer material utilized retains the same strength as previous versions.



Malkoff Devices M91B

Malkoff Devices has upgraded their M91 Dropin for Surefire Lights (and others). It now features a new emitter, the Cree XP-L, which results in a tighter, farther throwing beam. The output is approximately 825 measured out-the-front lumens at the moment the light is turned on with fresh batteries and 700 lumens after warm up for 1 hour (on 3 CR123 batteries). After the regulated runtime, the light output gradually decreases over a long period of time.

The M91B is designed for an input voltage range of 5.5-12 volts which gives you some flexibility in terms of battery choices. Check out the new M91B at Malkoff Devices.

UCP-Delta M43 Cap from Slangvel

Slangvel is part gear maker and part historian. He makes hats and other gear in several interesting and obscure patterns plucked from the pages of history. He also tends to work in modern, historical, and unique camo patterns.

He has limited numbers of his M43 cap available in UCP-Delta! UCP-Delta was basically an attempt to improve the UCP pattern by adding brown. Soldier Systems had good coverage on the pattern if you want to know more.

UCP-Delta fabric is very scarce and Slangvel only has a few of these. They may even be gone already. Check out Slangvel’s Facebook page to get in touch.


Mystery Ranch Alpine Lid

The Mystery Ranch NICE Day Pack Lid is a pretty solid piece of gear. It adds 900 cu-in of additional capacity to your pack and makes a decent little stand-alone pack for when you don’t need your main pack. However, that functionality comes at the cost of weight. It weighs 1 pound, 3.2 ounces on its own. That is a lot of weight for something that spends most of its time as a lid.


Mystery Ranch just introduced the 9 ounce Alpine Lid to address that weight issue. The Alpine Lid has 700 cu-in of capacity split between 2 chambers (the Day Pack Lid has 900 cu-in). It can be carried as a stand-alone satchel style pack instead of the Day Pack Lid’s backpack style carry. Basically, the Alpine Lid provides similar functionality for considerably less weight.
