Gleipnir Holster Leash from Brown Coat Tactical

Brown Coat Tactical’s newest product, the Gleipnir Holster Leash, allows you to turn your belt holster into an off body carry holster for use inside a bag or pack. It is essentially a static line for your holster.

The Gleipnir consists of a short section of scuba webbing to attach the holster to, a section of paracord, and a split ring. The split ring can be attached to something inside your bag (or other off-body concealment locations). Alternately, you can use other user supplied attachment methods like heavy duty safety pins.

The static line is a concept with which many self defense knife users will be familiar. It is basically a way of attaching a sheath (or in this case a holster) to a fixed object so that when the gun or knife is pulled away from the fixed object, the sheath/holster is stopped by the cord and removed automatically.

OV Innovations Cache – Available for Pre-order

The Cache, a “beavertail” accessory that is compatible with a variety of EDC and tactical backpacks, is now available for pre-order from OV Innovations. It features a bellowed design that allows it to lay flat when not in use but expand to hold large, bulky items. It is constructed with 500D Cordura and T-70 nylon thread.

This PALS compatible beavertail can be adjusted to fit a large variety of packs. OV Innovations states that the Cache “should fit any pack with at least 6 standard PALS columns on the face or bottom (near the face) and the appropriate upper anchor points.” I suspect that creative gear users will be able to find several ways to attach a gear item this versatile.

Check out the Cache at OV Innovations.

Big Changes at Survive! Knives

Survive! Knives has been hinting toward big changes for a while now and their upcoming SK series of knives hasn’t exactly been a secret though details were sparse. That all changed yesterday when Survive! rolled out new details on the future of the SK and GSO series.

The Survive! GSO series of knives have been in high demand and that is an understatement. The demand has easily outstripped the pace at which the semi-custom line can be produced and the knives are back ordered out more than a year in most cases. Enter the SK series. The SK series of knives will be more of a high end production line. Millit Knives will be handling the production grinding for all of the SURVIVE! knives. The SK Series blades will be completed at Precision Plus. The hope is that the SK series would be able to be kept in stock to meet the demand of most users and the GSO series can continue to be Survive! Knives’ more hand finished line.

The SK series consists initially of 3 different models: SK 3.5, SK 6, and SK 12. Pre-orders are already open on the SK 6 and SK 12. You can read details on all the SK models on their product page: SK product page at SurviveKnives.com

You can read what Survive! Knives has to say about the transition on their blog and view the video below for more details.

Crowdfund This: Carbon Tactics Ti Hook Belt

The Pied Piper of Belts, Carbon Tactics, just launched another Kickstarter campaign to fund their latest belt, the Ti Hook. They surpassed their modest funding goal by a long shot within the first 24 hours of the campaign.

The Ti Hook is one of their simplest buckle designs yet. It has no moving parts and requires no holes or ratchets to adjust. The Ti Hook is like a triglide with a hook on it that has been machined from titanium. It also has a gently curved shape so it is more comfortable and lays flat on the wearer. When properly adjusted, it has no exposed tail (extra webbing) and keeps its adjustment so all you have to do is hook/unhook it.

As with previous Carbon Tactics belt offerings, this one is available with a single or double layer of webbing. If you plan on using it for concealed carry, I recommend the double layer. I own several belts from Carbon Tactics and find them to support the weight of a holstered handgun very well. I especially like them for AIWB carry where a belt that supports weight but remains somewhat flexible is preferred.

Introducing the Wndsn Shot-Grouping-to-Moa Converter

Wndsn continues to round out their line of shooting calculation tools that require no batteries, minimal parts, and no electronics of any kind. Their latest tool is their Wndsn Shot-Grouping-to-Moa Converter.

From shot groupings to moa in one piece-of string operation with the Wndsn MOA Converter, making time at the range more effective.

Wndsn XPD, maker of low-tech, high-utility tools and instruments, proudly introduces the Wndsn MOA Converter designed to meet the needs of military and law enforcement, as well as gun enthusiasts and athletes. A tool for training and practice, the Wndsn MOA Converter enables the shooter to take out the guess work of calculating shot grouping MOA, eliminating mental calculation errors and increasing your success.

“What does my 1.85 inch shot grouping translate to in MOA on my 75 yard range?”

The double-sided tool provides two scales for shooting ranges up to 100 and 600 yards respectively and features twin scales for measurements both in inches and in cm for the shot grouping as well as yards and meters for the range distance. Both convert to MOA on the center scale.

With the objective of providing or enhancing “that, which can’t be improvised” in “low-probability, high-impact scenarios”, the MOA Converter expands on the Wndsn v1 Distance Meter, which did all the work except for one single calculation. Now with the newly designed line of metrology tools, you won’t need any calculation nor utilize battery power whatsoever through the use of even more elegantly baked-in trigonometry. Simply measure the shot groupings with the provided scale, then use the attached string to align the result with the distance of your range and read the resulting MOA. For hunters, enthusiasts, professionals, and athletes alike, the MOA Converter makes calculations effortless, increasing efficiency and speed while greatly decreasing error potential.

Sagewood Gear Spool Card with Bank Line

Bank line is a great cordage to carry for use in the outdoors. It packs smaller than paracord, ties well without slipping, and is very strong. Like any other type of cord, it turns into a tangled mess if you don’t take care of it. That is where the new Sagewood Gear Spool Card comes in.

The Spool Card is designed to hold 50 feet of bank line. It is made from .093″ kydex and features a simple retention notches at both ends of the card. The notches allow you to secure the end of the bank line to ensure it doesn’t come unraveled in your pack. When you need cord, you just spool out as much as you need, cut it, and then secure the end in the closest notch. The Spool Card comes pre-loaded with bank line.

PHLster TuckStrut and Classic Holster

PHLster released details today for two products that they have been teasing for weeks – the TuckStrut and full size Classic Holster.

The TuckStrut is a new piece of hardware developed by PHLter and Henry Holsters. The strut has an integral wing feature that serves to turn the butt of the handgun in toward the wearer for better concealment. It is tuckable and completely ambidextrous for use on right or left hand holsters. You can expect to see the new TuckStrut on PHLster holsters as well as in use as an OEM product for other holster makers.

PHLster also released news on their first full size holster in some time. The Classic was originally available through their custom shop but it is now available as a production offering with a number of improvements. The holsters features the aforementioned TuckStrut and a tear drop shaped in-molded ramp on the rear of the holster that work together to ensure that the grip of the gun stays firmly against the wearer for concealment. The Classic is molded for a Glock 17 but with an open muzzle so it also fits G26, G19, G19 with external comps, and G34 sized guns.

The TuckStrut and Classic are in stock and available at PHLsterHolsers.com.

Limited-Production “Decade Edition” Flashlights from Elzetta

We look forward every year to seeing what Elzetta is going to do for their annual limited edition flashlight. Past flashlights have been mirror polished or coated with cool colors. This year, Elzetta’s 10th anniversary, the limited edition light trumps all the past lights… because engine turning!

The new Decade Edition Bones Flashlight is based on Elzetta’s newest light, the more affordable Bones Flashlight. However, unlike the standard Bones Flashlight, this one has been spruced up with Blue Anodization, engine turned flats, and great looking “Elzetta Made in the USA” and “Decade Edition” engravings. I looks like the kind of thing you would find in a high end classic car restoration.

These limited edition lights never last long. Collectors snap them up in a matter of days. This one may last less time than usual.

Check out the Decade Edition Bones Flashlight at Elzetta.com.
