Blue Force Gear Hammock

The Blue Force Gear Hammock is more than just an April Fools joke. Sure, they put a banana in it and the jokes wrote themselves but now they are rolling it out as a real product with real utility.

The Hammock is used to carry a tourniquet or similarly shaped object while taking up minimal space and providing solid coverage on the tourniquet. It works with the gear you already have thanks to its unique hanger that has laser cut slots. These slots allow the Hammock to be woven into the MOLLE mounting elements on the back of the pouch. There are instructions for how to attach the Hammock on the Blue Force Gear website.

Blue Force Gear Tracer Pack – Now Available

Blue Force Gear has previewed the latest DAP Pack, the Tracer, at various trade shows and now it is available to purchase. This pack is aimed squarely at the EDC market with the features, functions, and military grade durability for which the Dapper compatible DAP packs are known.

The latest in the DAP Pack line – the Tracer™ Pack is a full featured, Dapper™ compatible EDC (Every Day Carry) pack that is perfectly suited in the car, at the office, in class, or in the back of an MRAP.  The Tracer Pack allows you to carry all your essentials with the pack as it is or enhanced with the modular Dapper pouch system.

Starting with the outside – the Tracer is slightly bigger than the Jedburgh™  pack.  Keeping with the Jedburgh styling – a fully MOLLE compatible panel is on the main front pocket, but unlike traditional MOLLE – the MOLLEminus panel looks like a style element typical in modern packs but can be quickly used for additional MOLLE pouches or a Trauma Kit NOW!™   The inside of the pocket is loop lined and can be used with DAP Loops or other smaller Dappers.

On either side of the main pocket are two water bottle pockets constructed of Tweave – a durable 4-way stretch fabric used on our PLATEminus™ armor carriers or more commonly seen in football jerseys for its lightweight strength.

Towards the top is a zippered pocket for quick access items – perfect for going through security lines at the airport! This area of the bag usually has less stress or impact from the contents of the pack.

The main compartment features an integral padded laptop sleeve on the back capable of holding most 15” or smaller laptops.  The laptop sleeve, the sides, and the front flap are all loop lined to mount various Dappers that are available for purchase separately. This allows you to add pouches and other Dappers to keep your gear organized securly and can be quickly removed or swapped with other Dappers.

The bottom of the pack features a double layer of ULTRAcomp® – a high-performance laminate that provides superior wear and water resistance over other materials – the same battle-proven material used on armor carriers, magazine pouches, and gear pouches worn by the nation’s finest warriors.

As with all Blue Force Gear products, the Tracer Pack is made in the USA with excellence and carries a limited lifetime warranty.

***Tracer Pack for sale only. Additional items not included***

Custom Vickers Padded Slings from Blue Force Gear

Blue Force Gear rolled out their new custom configurator tool for Vickers Slings a few weeks ago and it has been a hit. The only problem was that if you wanted a padded sling, you were left out in the cold… until now. Blue Force Gear just announced their custom sling builder for Vickers Padded Slings!

Blue Force Gear – Belt Fed Loop

Blue Force Gear just expanded their line of specialty sling loops with the addition of the Belt Fed Loop (BFL). Like the various iterations of the UWL and ULoop before it, the BFL is designed to solve sling mounting problems. The forged aluminum BFL is designed for use on the M249 SAW where heat can destroy other types of sling attachments or the sling themselves.

The usefulness of the BFL isn’t limited to the M249. It can be used on anything with a fixed integrated sling loop like the SCAR or AK. It can also be looped through the cooling holes of many aluminum hand guards making it a near universal sling mounting solution. Other Blue Force Gear sling loops can also accomplish this but the design of the BFL allows it to lay flatter against the rifle when used on a fixed sling loop.

You can check out the new Belt Fed Loop at Blue Force Gear.

Blue Force Gear SP-1404 Sling Update – Now Shipping with 2 Free QD Swivels

Blue Force Gear heard you loud and clear. There has been a ton of interest in their small run of Special 1404 Slings but the sling is certainly not inexpensive. Unfortunately, that is the reality for a small run sling with different webbing than what they usually work with and custom hardware.


To help defray some of the expense, their SP-1404 Sling is now shipping with two free push button QD swivels. BFG’s swivels are some of the best on the market and getting two of them for free should go a long way toward improving the value of this sling.

You can read more about what makes the sling unique in our previous post and check out the SP-1404 Sling at Blue Force Gear. You don’t have to do anything special to get the swivels. They will be included with your SP-1404 order automatically.

Special 1404 Sling from Blue Force Gear

Every once in a while Blue Force Gear rolls out special versions of their slings. These special versions are often just standard slings with special camo patterns or custom color combinations but the most special ones have all new elements or unique hardware. That is the case with the new Special 1404 Sling that they just released today.


The Special 1404 Sling may look like a Vickers Combat Applications Sling (VCAS) at first glance and, the truth is, it is very much like the standard VCAS in terms of function. However, the Special 1404 packs some features that you won’t find on other VCAS slings.

This sling features your choice of 2 unique colorways. The Multicam option is covered front-to-back with Multicam pattern webbing. The Desert Digital option has a Desert Digital (similar to AOR1) webbing on the forward section and coyote on the rear section. Both colorways make use of unique aluminum hardware with a brown anodized finish.

The most interesting difference between the VCAS and the Special 1404 is barely noticeable. The Special 1404 Sling makes use of 1.5″ webbing at the rear of the sling (the part that actually contacts the wearer) instead of the standard 1.25″ webbing found on the VCAS. This is interesting because it is designed to be a sort of happy medium between the standard VCAS Sling and the Padded VCAS Sling.


Blue Force Gear’s webbing is substantial and thick but has a brushed, soft canvas-like feel. The edges are quite rounded so it as already quite comfortable when bearing weight. So, this 1.5″ webbing should spread the weight of the rifle out on the wearer’s shoulder even more effectively while remaining just as low profile as a plain webbing sling. It is a sort of functional hybrid between the flat webbing and padded versions of the VCAS.
