BFG Articles, News, and other Awesomeness

I just came across an interesting part of the Blue Force Gear website called BFG Articles, News, and other Awesomeness. It contains all kinds of great information about training, BFG products, DIY projects, and more.


There is actually a ton of good info packed into these pages..

Do you want to know how Larry Vickers adapts his slings for southpaw use on an AK? Its there.

Do you want to learn how to turn a BFG Boo Boo Pouch into a $10 survival kit? Its there.

Looking for the history of the Blue Force Gear logo? That’s there too.

I killed more than an hour poking through just a few pages. You can check out the BFG Articles, News, and other Awesomeness section of the BFG website by clicking the “Articles” link in the website header bar or just click here.

On the Cover and on Your Rifle – Blue Force Gear Kryptek Padded Vickers Sling

On Target Magazine recently featured a Blue Force Gear Padded Vickers Sling in Kryptek Typhon. Check out BlueForceGear.com to put one on your rifle.


Blue Force Gear Pouches on Your Bike

Attaching tactical/military pouches to bicycles is nothing new but I have found that Blue Force Gear’s Utility Pouches with Helium Whisper backing work particularly well. They are very lightweight by design and the Helium Whisper backing has a rubbery texture that, when woven tight, really grips the bike and prevents the pouch from moving.

BFG Pouch on Bike

The image above shows a BFG Small Utility Pouch attached to the handlebar of a mountain bike so that the pouch rests on the stem. The picture makes it appear quite large but it actually fits in the space very well. It is a great place to store some bike tools, a pair of gloves, a spare tube, and any other items you may need.

I have also used the same pouch attached to the support members of a rear bike rack and attached to the frame in various ways. Basically, as long as you can be a little creative with how you weave the straps, you can find a ton of ways to mount these pouches to a bike.

I use this Small Utility Pouch because I just happen to have a couple in my gear box. My next step is to order some of the larger pouches to see how I might be able to use them. For instance, the Medium Horizontal Utility Pouch or Large Utility Pouch might work well as a front mounted handlebar bag.

Blue Force Gear Releases Left Handed Slings…

There has been a new advancement in the fight for the equality of southpaws. Blue Force Gear is now offering left handed VCAS Slings. It’s about time!

From Blue Force Gear:

Throughout the years, we’ve received a number of requests for left-handed slings. From hopeful requests to the just plain angry, it’s been pointed out to us that we don’t have as much love for lefties as we do for our right-handed customers.

To show you we appreciate all of our customers equally, we’ve developed the revolutionary Left-Handed Vickers Sling™.

Now all you left-handed shooters can go to the range with your right-handed friends without fearing ridicule and poor performance.

Paint Your Rifle the Blue Force Gear Way

It seems like everyone has a favorite way to paint rifles. I am partial to the method where I have no plan at all but it still manages to turn out okay. If you want to paint yours the way the folks at Blue Force Gear paint theirs, check this out.


Alternate Use for BFG Baton Belt Pouch

I have come to like Blue Force Gear’s Belt Pouches quite a bit. They are the culmination of several of the technologies that BFG introduced to the tactical gear world and, because of their versatile design, I have found all kinds of unintended uses for them.

The Belt Pouches make use of their Helium Whisper backing which is laser cut ULTRAcomp material which keeps the weight to an absolute minimum while increasing durability. ULTRAcomp’s rubbery texture also serves to increase the retention of the pouch by increasing friction on the contents. The BFG Belt Pouches also utilize heavy duty elastic front panels known at BFG as Ten-Speed. These features combine to make a pouch that is low profile, lightweight, and that will hold just about anything you can wedge into them no matter how awkwardly shaped that item may be.

The BFG Baton Belt Pouch is designed to carry a collapsible baton but I have found that it fits many tourniquets like it was made for them. Some people try to do the same thing with pistol magazine pouches. That may work with some tourniquets but the additional height of the Baton Belt Pouch allow me to fold and stage a CAT the way I prefer and store it extremely securely. It takes a few minutes to cram it into the pouch and that is a good thing. It’s a tight fit. The pouch holds it tenaciously but a quick tug lets the TQ leap into your hand.

I have taken to keeping one staged just as you see in the picture above so that I can easily throw it on my belt when I go out to the range. Having your medical gear staged, accessible, and easy to don is the key to having it available when you need it.

Note: For the curious, the above picture is the kit I often use at the range. This kit is close to everything I need and it saves me time because I can wear it to and from the range under a covering garment so I don’t look like a ninja out in public.

Blue Force Gear ULoop

The ULoop from Blue Force Gear is a new sling mounting accessory that was first debuted on the AK Sling Version 5. The ULoop is similar in appearance to Blue Force Gear’s UWL in that is has a coated steel cable loop and sling attachment point. However, the ULoop takes an evolutionary step beyond the UWL by allowing the user to open and close the steel cable loop.


This unique functionality makes the ULoop a suitable replacement for snap hooks, HK style hooks, and more. It is quieter and less prone to accidental opening than steel hooks like the HK style hook. It is also easier on the sling webbing than stamped steel sling hooks.


The ULoop is perfect for use on the AK’s front sling attachment point, FN SCAR sling attachment points, or any other rifle with small, loop style sling attachment points. It may also be useful for improvising sling attachments by looping it through holes in a hand guard or buttstock. Like the UWL, I expect users will find many interesting ways to solve sling mounting problems with the ULoop.

Check out the ULoop at Blue Force Gear.
