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.
$80 + for that is rediculous. Hainous over charging no matter the rebuttals
That’s 4 dollars in supplies and 20 in labor. $40 is understandable.
What a joke
Nero, This is great news! I need 50pcs. of both Multicam and Multicam Black by Black Friday and it sounds like you’re my source.
If I understand correctly, with materials and labor, you can make these up for me for 24.00 per pcs. This would save my significant time and money and open me up for some additional projects we have in queue.
In the meantime, please let me know what equipment your set up with. If you have links to any of your current work, that would be really helpful. I assume that knowing the cost and time needed means you likely have most of the materials for the job in inventory? Please post links of your work here so we can check them out. I hope we can make this work!
Nero, I have no affiliation with this company, but have to say you’re wrong on this one. First off, I can tell by looking there’s more then $4 in materials there, but when it comes to making gear in the US, materials is usually the cheapest part. out of curiosity how long do you thing it would take to cut and prep all the materials and then sew that piece of gear? On top of that you need to add a few more costs. Like, rent, utilities, insurance, workers comp, business license, LLC Tax, internet, phone, CC processing fees, software fees, fire inspection fees, alarm fees, advertising, equipment, and the list goes on an on. I have to pay about $50 later today just to get me fire extinguishers serviced even though they don’t need it. If I don’t the city shuts me down.
When it turns into a legit business and no longer a part time gig in the garage the price of doing business goes through the roof. The rent on my shop is more then my mortgage on my house. I’ve been doing this over 10 years now and try to keep prices as low as possible, but If you want it made in the US with US materials it gets expensive. Plus if they want to also sell through dealers they have to mark it up even more so they can make a profit. I also noticed the price included shipping. If that piece in a box weighs more then 15oz. the cheapest shipping is going to be priority mail. That’s $6-10 right there depending on location of the customer. If you know of a contract sewing company worth a crap here in the US that will make that same product with the same materials for $24 please let me know because there’s no reason for me to keep sewing anything myself. Even if you did a $50K minimum order with a quality contract sewer it would cost you more then $24 per piece. You would then still have to add up all the costs mentioned above to get a price with an acceptable profit margin to make it worth your time.
Blackhawk(!) used to make a very similar rig, you can probably find it used or new old stock…
Yeah man stitch three mag pouches to 3 cordura straps. I’ve seen fanny packs with better quality and American made.
Throw it on some latest cams and boom. Worth the price bro. You’re a clown dude.
Only thing it sounds like is……
You don’t have solid manufacturing, or material, playing off latest hot trend camo which will fade into the wind like your side project que. which is likely scavenging other makers websites and/or adding a female version.
Dammmmmnnn, comments are today!
