The new INVRT Bandoleer from IC13 Arms & Accessories is new take on the bandoleer concept. The INVRT Bandoleer was designed in collaboration with Lunar Concepts and really blurs the line between more simple bandoleers and full on load carriage options like chest rigs.
The INVRT is completely ambidextrous and is designed to be quick to don and doff. It allows the user to simply pass the single shoulder strap over their head and onto their opposite shoulder (like you would with 2 point rifle sling) and immediately have a load carriage solution that is stable enough to fight from. The INVRT can be further stabilized by buckling a sternum strap if time allows.
The end user can attach MOLLE compatible pouches (IC13 offers a full suite of them as an upgrade or for purchase seperately) to the main 6 column by 2 row PALS webbing field or to the 1 column by 3 row PALS fields on the shoulder straps. Magazine pouches attached to the main PALS webbing field will ride high on the user’s chest so that the magazine pouches may be attached inverted (hence the name).
The INVRT Bandoleer is available on its own, with a full quite of pouches (2 rifle mag, 1 pistol mag, 1 med pouch), or complete with pouches and a fully stocked med kit. You can check it out at IC13Arms.com.
Beez Combat Systems (BCS) offers a line of MOLLE mountable magazine shingles to support most popular rifles.

Stay tuned for details.

You can check out current Wasp Rig variations at Gadsden Dynamics. Stay tuned for more details on the shotgun version.
Mission Spec has released their second generation of the Essentials Plate Carrier as the Essentials Carrier 2 (EC2). This new version shares the ultra-light profile of its predecessor, the EOC. Weighing in at only 24.9 ounces and constructed from 1000D CORDURA (500D for MultiCam; Black, Arid, Tropic).
All of the great features of the EOC carry over to the new model. Abilities such as the independent height adjustment of the rear plate bag. A full uninterrupted PALS grid. Moisture wicking spacer mesh against the user’s body.
The list of updates includes; native support for industry standard chest rigs, dual tourniquet holders, dual pen/chem-light storage, cable and hydration routing options, rear light-pack hangers, and simulated PALS sewn into the new semi-elastic side straps for improved MOLLE pouch support.
The EC2 is fully compatible with other Mission Spec products such as the FlankSavers, ShoulderSavers (all versions), and other future products. Inserted armor (not included) is always kept at the highest possible position inside of the plate bags due to the EC2’s armor suspension system. Just like the EOC, all armor weight bypasses the CORDURA layer and is loaded directly onto the internal webbing structure.
The ShoulderSavers have also received improvements with the mk3 version and are available alongside the EC2. Improved cable and hydration management along with other tweaks make the ShoulderSavers much more useful to the user. The ShoulderSavers mk3 can be used with many other plate carriers as long as the shoulder straps are equal to or less than 2” in width.
Both items are available in the entire line of standard colors and patterns offered by Mission Spec. Custom colors and patterns along with other customizations are possible on a case by case basis. Contact Mission Spec if these services are needed. The EC2 and ShoulderSavers mk3 are 100% designed, tested, and manufactured in the United States with US sourced components and are Berry Compliant.
The value priced, feature-heavy Disruptive Combat Pant from Chase Tactical was previously only available in Multicam. However, there was demand for solid color options so they are now opening pre-orders for Coyote Brown now with OD green in the works for a later date. If there is enough interest, they may also begin producing these pants in Multicam Black.

The Hill People Gear Aston House BC (Back Country), a back country pack based on the original Aston House Pack, is now available. The Aston House BC is similar in size and foot print to the original Aston House but it has less organization features and a more substantial chassis which, coupled with the Aston House’s compression features, allow this pack to carry anything from small daypack loads to heavier overnight loads.
The Aston House BC has a beefier suspension that includes a full frame sheet and dual aluminum stays. It comes with Hill People Gear’s excellent shoulder harness and can accept the Recon or Prairie Belt (belt not included).
The panel loading main compartment is completely lined with First Spear’s 6/12 material so you can add MOLLE or hook backed pouches. The main compartment can be accessed via the panel zipper or top and bottom zippers. The front panel of the pack features a full height slot pocket on the exterior and a mesh slip pocket on the inside. The exterior sides of Aston House BC have dual wand pockets similar to those found on other Hill People Gear packs.
The Aston House BC also comes with the Aston Panel, a MOLLE compatible compression panel that is made from First Spear’s 6/12 Laminate material (loop material bonded to hypalon). The panel can be used to compress the pack and carry gear like skis, a snow shovel, bulky clothing layers, and more.
