Beez Combat Systems PcC Chest Rig GRID

Beez Combat Systems (BCS) is in the process of updating much of their product line with their new laser cut GRID technology. The latest product to receive the GRID treatment is their PCC Chest Rig GRID.

The PCC Chest Rig GRID has BCS’ internal magazine design which keeps the rig very low profile and offers a completely uninterrupted PALS compatible surface on the front made up of the laser cut GRID material. This chest rig can carry 4 30/32 round pistol caliber carbine magazines and features adjustable flaps so the user can dial in the fit.

Like all of BCS’ chest rigs, this one is available with a number of harness and lat strap options. It is available in Multicam, Coyote, Ranger Green, and Black.

This rig has been tested and confirmed to fit the following magazines and will likely fit others:

  • Glock 9mm 33rd Magazine
  • M&P 9mm 33rd Magazine (ProMag)
  • Beretta 9mm 32rd Magazine
  • Ruger 9mm 32rd Magazine
  • Springfield 9mm 32rd Magazine
  • CZ Scorpion 30rd mags
  • PGS hybrid CZ Scorpion mags
  • MP5
  • Sten
  • Currently working to confirm KRISS mags

5col Survival Supply Attachenator Kit

5col Survival Supply’s Attachenator Kit is now available. This clever kit comes with everything you need to attach all kinds of gear to a PALS grid, a backpack, your belt, and more.

The kit includes:

  • 4 ITW GTSP Cordlocs
  • 5 ft. 1/8″ diameter Shock Cord
  • 5 ft. MIL-C-5040h Type 3 Parachute Cord

This kit can be very convenient for the guy who doesn’t already have these components on hand. In order to piece together a kit like this, you would have to buy all the separate components in bulk which not everyone wants to do.

I have used these same components to do all kinds of things like:

  • Mount a TQ to a PALS grid
  • Attach trekking poles to a backpack
  • Attach water bottles to a backpack shoulder strap
  • Make a strap for managing a sling on a rifle
  • Make retaining straps or a grid for securing bulky outerwear to a pack
  • Make adjustable dummy cords for gear like a compass

Mission Spec Releases Four New Products Just Before Shot Show

As we move into Shot Show 2018, Mission Spec is releasing four new nylon products – available immediately.

The MagRack5™ chest rig supports three 5.56mm magazines and two laser-cut PALS wings for attaching other essential items such as pistol ammunition, radio, or IFAK. Magazines are bungee retained. Magazine pouches are fully compatible with Haley Strategic MP2 Mag Pouch Inserts.  The MagRack5 also comes equipped with two tourniquet holders and a loop Velcro field for identification.  The unit can be used as a stand-alone piece of gear with the aid of the RackStraps™ (either Standard or Enhanced model) or can be integrated into a plate carrier such as the Mission Spec EC2™ or AC2™.  The top horizontal GTSR buckles can be moved between the 90-degree and 45-degree positions for better integration options between plate carriers and RackStraps, respectively. Dual 550 cord loops hang under each outer magazine pouch for chem-light storage. A 7.62mm version (MagRack7™) is scheduled for release later in 2018.

The RackStraps™ integrate with the MagRack5 or other industry standard chest rigs. The Standard model offers a low profile and less expensive option while the Enhanced model gives the user the added benefit of closed-cell foam padding and airmesh to reduce shoulder fatigue.

The Armor Carrier 2 (AC2)™ is an even lighter weight version (~22.8 ounces) of the Mission Spec Essentials Carrier 2 (EC2)™. Removing the standard PALS grid and replacing it with loop Velcro makes the AC2 a great plate carrier choice to integrate with a chest rig (such as the MagRack5 or other industry standard rigs). All other features are identical to the Mission Spec EC2. The AC2 is fully compatible with other Mission Spec accessories such as the ShoulderSavers™ mk3 and FlankSavers™.

All four items are available in a large variety of solid colors and camouflage patterns. All Mission Spec items are 100% designed, tested, and manufactured in the United States with US-sourced components and are Berry Compliant.

Sneak Peek: 5col Survival Supply HPG Kit Bag Survival Kit

5col Survival Supply is developing a survival kit designed specifically to fit the Hill People Gear Kit Bag. The kit features quality components from Solkoa Survival Systems, Aquamira, UCO, and more. Given the versatile load carrying capability of the Kit Bag and it’s ability to stay with the wearer even when they have to drop their pack, I am surprised there hasn’t been other similar kits developed.

Stay tuned for additional details.


Gear Dynamics Custom Chest Rig

Custom gear makers provide a valuable resource to shooters. You’ve heard me say things like that before. It is nice knowing that when you have an idea for a gear item that just doesn’t exist, there are craftsman out there who can make it a reality.

This custom chest rig from Gear Dynamics is a great example. The customer is a competition shooter who wanted to be able to mount pouches at an angle, presumably to enhance the speed at which the contents of those pouches could be accessed. Something like this chest rig could probably be pieced together with a regular chest rig and a handful of adapters but it would never be as sleek as this purpose built, custom piece.


RE Factor Tactical Trauma Tape

RE Factor Tactical’s new, patent pending Trauma Tape makes recording and attaching important medical information easier for first responders and medics. The standard 2″ athletic tape is printed with spaces to record the following:


  • Body temperature
  • Heart rate
  • Respiratory rate
  • Blood pressure
  • Pulse oximetry
  • Glasgow Coma Scale
  • Drugs
  • Notes

Trauma Tape is available in 2 versions: a white standard version for first responders and a tan military version. The tan military version also includes M.I.S.T. report. The white standard roll contains 60 strips and the tan military edition contains 40 strips.



New for 2018 at Gadsden Dynamics

Gadsden Dynamics isn’t taking a holiday break. They are already taking the wraps off two new products for 2018.

The first new releases are full Multicam versions of many of their gear items including their chest rigs. The new rigs feature Multicam printed webbing and elastic materials for full camo coverage.

The second new product is a tourniquet carrier specifically designed to attach to the harness of their chest rigs but it can also be used on a sling or belt. Expect the new tourniquet to be released early in 2018.
