HSGI® TO PROVIDE 30K MAG POUCHES AS PART OF HK’S ARMY RIFLE CONTRACT

SWANSBORO, NC, July 31, 2019 – High Speed Gear® has been contracted to provide Heckler & Koch® with more than 30,000 rifle TACO® pouches as part of their fulfilment of the Army squad designated marksman rifle contract. The TACO® MOLLE pouch was chosen for its functionality, versatility and retention.

The TACO® will handle any type of rifle magazine.  This unique pouch uses injection-molded polymer sides, 1000D Cordura® front and back, and shock cord lacing to securely hold almost any rifle magazine. The TACO® maintains a positive, adjustable grip on its contents without additional securing systems and deploys easily and silently on demand.

 “We were so pleased to work with Heckler and Koch® on this equipment contract for the Army,” said Bill Babboni, HSGI® vice president of sales and operations. “While we have supported individual military units and personnel for years, to have two sizeable military contracts is truly an honor.  Our recent contract with the Marines for 150,000 X2R TACO® and this contract of 30,000 TACOs® heading to the Army means High Speed Gear is doing the right things at the right time for our service members. It truly reflects well on our teams and the great work they continue to do here. We couldn’t be more grateful to support our military.” For more than 20 years, High Speed Gear® has been dedicated to building the best American-made tactical gear with distinct and innovative products such as the TACO® and the Sure-Grip Padded Belt®. Our products are designed for the highest level of comfort, functionality, versatility and are always user driven to meet the operational needs of a wide variety of end users.

RE Factor Tactical and High Speed Gear NVG Counterbalance Pouch

Question: What happens when RE Factor Tactical and High Speed Gear get together? Answer: Good things if you use a helmet mounted night vision setup.

The new NVG Counterbalance Pouch is now available. This pouch was designed by RE Factor Tactical and manufactured by High Speed Gear. It is designed to carry an ANVIS battery pack along with two removable parkerized steel plates that weigh .45 lbs each. The plates are included. The ability to add and remove the plates allow the user to customize the balance of their helmet. The pouch also features space for additional small items and loop Velcro coverage for patches and ID.

New Belt Mounted Pouches from HSG

HSG has introduced new belt mounted versions of their Mag-net Dump Pouch, Pogey Pouch, and Soft Taco. The addition of these pouches to their existing line of belt mounted Taco pouches means that it is now possible to build an entire belt rig with HSG’s pouches.

Check out the new pouches at HSG.

HSG Plate Carriers

It is good to see High Speed Gear back in the plate carrier game. There was a time when the Weesatch and its derivatives were the hot carriers on the market but that was years ago. Now, with the introduction of their new MPC and SPC carriers, they are coming back to relevance in an innovative way.

MPC_BK1

HSG’s approach to their SPC and MPC is modularity on a level that I am not sure we have seen before. Both plate carriers start with the same basic, slick, plate pocket chassis. The SPC is offered as a more slick, low-profile option and the MPC as a more modular, load-bearing option. The MPC’s MOLLE compatible cummerbund is actually HSG’s excellent Sure Grip repurposed with an adapter to work as a cummerbund! The front panel can be run slick or with the new HSG Chest Platform mounted on the front as a cummerbund flap. Both the Sure Grip Belt and Chest Platform can also be utilized as stand-alone gear when you don’t need a plate carrier.

We have certainly seen effective ways to integrate plate carriers and chest rigs before, but HSG’s new approach seems to take modularity to a whole new level. Check out the SPC and MPC at HSG.

The New and Improved TACO

HSGI improved taco

HSGI’s TACO magazine pouches are already pretty good. I use them on my MOLLE belt so I can switch easily between AKs and ARs without much fuss. These improvements are subtle but welcomed.

From HSGI…

SWANSBORO, NC –  26AUG2014 – High Speed Gear is pleased to announce of an improvement to our TACO® line of pouches.  All TACO® pouches that utilize an injected molded bracket will have the following improvements implemented.

  • Each bracket is now 1/8th inch longer creating higher feed ramps for easier indexing and reinsertion of magazines.
  •  Increased the size of and beveled the eye hole for easier tension adjustment.
  • Adjusted the proportion of all edges and corners

The bracket is one of the most crucial and unique parts of our TACO® pouches.  It keeps the pouch open when empty and allows the user to index magazines for easy reinsertion.  By improving the bracket, it will allow for improved performance. Implementation was made across the board and the polymer material utilized retains the same strength as previous versions.

Extended TACOs from High Speed Gear

Normally when I super-size my tacos, I just end up with heart burn. When High Speed Gear super-sizes their TACOs, you end up with versatile pouches that can handle many of the extended rifle, shotgun, and pistol magazines on the market. They have now introduced extended (deeper) versions of their pistol and rifle TACOs.

The Extended Pistol TACO should be ideal for the 33 round Glock mags, MP5 mags, ASP batons, longer flashlights, and probably even Ruger BX-25 magazines. The HCM TACO should be just the ticket for PMAG 40s and Saiga 12 mags. I currently use PMAG 40s in regular TACOs with good results but the extra depth of these would ease my mind.

HSGI Costa Padded Leg Panel

If you like the concept of the original HSGI Costa Leg Rig but you wish you could change the pouch configuration to suit your needs, I have good news. HSGI has just released a PALS compatible version of the Costa Leg Rig called the Costa Padded Leg Panel.BAM_1442_750x497

It has the same 2 point mounting system that sits just below the belt line as the original. It also retains the light padding of the original. The difference is that this model features a 3 row by 6 column PALS field so that you can attach which ever compatible pouches you want.
