RE Factor Tactical Tourniquet Holder

RE Factor Tactical has introduced a Tourniquet Holder with some interesting functionality. They claim that it is the first tourniquet holder that is designed to be carried either overtly or covertly.

The tourniquet holder utilizes 2 straps that can be weaved into MOLLE webbing, secured to a belt, and that hold the tourniquet (TQ) horizontally. This horizontal mounting position makes sense for placing the TQ high on the center line of the wearer when wearing it overtly. The straps are tied together so that the user needs only to pull in one place to release the TQ rather than pulling two separate straps. The straps have elastic sections that allow the RE Factor Tactical Tourniquet Holder to fit a wide variety of TQs.

The back of the RE Factor Tactical Tourniquet Holder is covered with hook material so when you need to covertly carry a TQ, you can locate the holder inside of a loop lined bag. Internal loop fields are becoming more and more common in EDC, police, and military bags.

Zulu Nylon Gear Indy Satchel

If you are a big fan of the Indiana Jones film franchise or just a fan of cool nylon gear with classic styling, you are going to love the Indy Satchel from Zulu Nylon Gear. This new bag is a modernization of the classic WWII British MKVII gas mask bag that is the constant companion of Doctor Jones.

The exterior looks surprisingly original even though the materials are all very modern (double layer 1000D nylon and milspec hardware). The interior sports some modern organization potential in the form of a large loop field for use with hook-backed pouches. There is also a slip pocket on the interior that has a hook and loop closure and webbing loops on the back for attaching a waist strap (not included).

The Indy Satchel is a limited edition that won’t last long. It is not accessible from the main Zulu Nylon Gear website, you can click here to be taken to a special page on the Zulu Nylon Gear website.

Duffel Bag Backpack Project

Here is an interesting project. Matt Arrell of Home Combat Magazine is gathering funding for a project that would turn used military duffel bags into useful EDC backpacks. Since the bags would be made from used duffel bags, they would be tough and no two would be the same. Matt shared some of the initial drawings with me and these bags have some real potential.

You can learn more and get on board with the project at indiegogo.com.

Update: The initial drawings for what the bags will look like have been shared on the indiegogo page and there is a new video with more information.

Custom Kydex Makers Adopting the G-Code RTI Hangers

The G-Code RTI system is about as slick as it gets. It allows you to quickly and easily move kydex accessories like holsters and mag pouches from one mounting solution to another. It is an extremely adaptable and modular system that can be attached to everything from MOLLE webbing, to belts, to drop leg hangers, and everything in between. Now, the RTI Hangers appears to be enjoying some level of standardization as it has been adopted by 2 custom kydex benders: Off the Grid Concepts LLC and Fury Carry Solutions.

This type of standardization is very good for the consumer as it broadens the availability, cross-compatibility, and versatility of a system. I hope more companies in the industry will begin to follow this example.

More Emerson Knives / Multitasker Tools Collaboration News

There is a lot of hype building up around the upcoming Emerson Knives/Multitasker Tools collaboration tools – the EDC and EK-1. A interesting new development emerged recently regarding a feature that “EDC” (a Swiss Army Knife type tool). The EDC will feature a 90/180 degree lock on the screw driver. This will allow the use to use it as a typical inline drive or with the handle at 90 degrees to the blade for more torque. That is pretty clever.

Combative Edge 2012 Model Knives

Combative Edge has completed a complete refresh of their line of knives for 2012. There are changes to all three models that they offer: the M1, the SR11, and the Salus.

The changes to the two folders, the M1 and SR11, are sweeping and impressive. These changes include a new framelock stabilizer, new pocket clip with more tension, an improved detent, and a locking pivot screw. Additionally, the SR11 will now come with a black G-10 scale instead of the original green micarta. Many of these changes are the result of direct input from end users.

The Salus will remain much the same with one major change. It will now be offered with a drop point blade shape instead of the original tanto.

There will be 100 M1’s, 100 SR11’s, and 200 SALUS knives so you will have to act fast. You can pre-order all of the 2012 models now from Combative Edge. You can find more information and picture on the Combative Edge Facebook page.
