The VOCR, or Variable Objective Chest Rig, from Extreme Gear Labs (EGL) is already one of the most expandable chest rigs on the market. There are a host of available accessories for it and its derivatives like the HSP D3CR. The latest addition to the line up is the Drop-in VOCR Hydrobag which adds hydration capability to any VOCR, D3CR, or Mayflower R&C chest rig harness.

Crimson Trace recently announced their latest laser for the popular Smith & Wesson Shield. The LG-489G is in their Laserguard series which means it attaches to the trigger guard and sits under the dust cover for a low profile. This particular model features a green laser diode which is more visible in day light.
Crimson Trace says that they will have holsters available for purchase at the time of release. Given the popularity of CT products, you can expect that custom holster makers will also support the LG-489G.
Like all CT lasers, the LG-489G features their Instinctive Activation button which activates the laser when the handgun is gripped. This feature, coupled with their quality, is why I use their lasers.

I have used kydex holsters that have had fabric, usually Cordura, laminated to the exterior of the holster. This is usually done to apply camouflage to the holster but has the secondary benefit of quieting the holster a bit. It deadens the creaks, clicks, and various other noises that kydex holsters can make. Now, don’t run out and glue fabric to your holsters. The sounds your holster makes is probably not really worth worrying about. I only bring it up because I recently came across an interesting new finish that VEIL Solutions is experimenting with – Rhino Lining.
They have Rhino Lined one of their Valkyrie model holsters and I am interested to see what, if any, benefits they uncover in their testing. I suspect that it will serve to deaden the typical kydex sounds but also wonder if it might add an additional level of durability that would come in handy during one-hand manipulation drills. Only time and testing will tell but it is great to see someone trying something new.
A friend of mine said that morale patches have become as common as business cards in this industry and that they are almost like a form tactical folk art. Patches like the new Samurai Patch from Bastion make it easy to believe he is right. The patch features a hand drawn samurai figure rendered in great detail. This is a great looking patch.
