Lester River Bushcraft Adds Charcoal Gray to Boreal Line of Wool Outerwear

Lester River Bushcraft is well known for their high-quality wool outerwear. Known as the Boreal line and made in Duluth, Minnesota, the line consists of two garments – the Boreal Shirt Anorak and the LRB M1951 Field Jacket. Previously these garments were only available in Olive Green but this week, Lester River Bushcraft added a new Charcoal Gray color option.

Wool is naturally flame retardant and antimicrobial. It wicks moisture away from the wear and helps regulate temperature. Both garments are also packed with features beyond the natural qualities of wool. Learn more at:


Tulster SideKick

The Tulster SideKick is glue-on, claw-like device for kydex IWB holsters. It is designed specifically to work with Tulster holsters but since it is attached via adhesive and requires only a mostly flat portion of holster near the trigger guard area of the holster, it may be useful on holsters from a variety of manufacturers.

You may be familiar with holster claws already. They are struts that project out from the holster and provide a physical means of torquing the holster in toward the wearer to reduce printing. They are usually designed to ride under the belt so that the belt itself provides the necessary pressure to turn the handgun’s grip into the wearer.

Typically, claw-like devices are either bolted onto the holster, integrated into the belt hardware, or molded into the holster itself. Tulster’s adhesive based SideKick will provide another option for attaching these devices that should have broad compatibility with many holsters and may even work for holsters that were previously incapable of accepting a claw.

The SideKick will be released on March 3rd. In the mean time, you can learn more about it and see how it is installed at Tulster’s website:


Massaro Holster Works American Purebred IWB Holster

A friend of mine recently pointed out Massaro Holster Works to me during a discussion about my love-hate relationship with hybrid holsters. Their American Purebred IWB Holster looks a lot like any other hybrid holster at first glance but if you look closer there are some really interesting and unique features.

The handgun is fully enclosed in kydex which corrects the biggest drawback with many other hybrids which is marginal retention. The kydex holster body attaches to the backing via hook and loop makes it infinitely adjustable for ride height and cant. Massaro Holster Works has also designed the holster body with a built-in rotation to turn the grip in toward the wearer much the same way you might see with a wedge or ramp on an AIWB holster.

The holster backing is grippy on the side that is placed against the wearer which Massaro Holsters claims helps take some of the weight of the gun off the belt. Finally, they utilize a very unique spring steel wire clip that appears to be very low-profile.


Greg Moffatt Knives NPE G10 Shiv

Greg Moffatt Knives has introduced a new affordable, non-metalic defensive option – the NPE G10 Shiv. As the name suggests, this tool is hand-ground from G10. It has a very slender form-factor that is easily carried in a number of ways thanks to the included, non-metallic static line sheath.

The NPE G10 Shiv’s handle is very slim fitting with its overall slim form-factor. It features a series of shallow finger grooves to allow the user to establish a secure grip.


Carbon Tactics Cipher Belt

The prolific kickstarter kings of belts, Carbon Tactics, is at it again. They have created and launched a number of successful belts and buckle technologies over the years and their latest is the Cipher.

The Cipher features a buckle that uses the geometry of the latching surfaces and magnets to basically latch itself. This has been a hallmark of a handful of Carbon Tactics belts and it makes donning and removing the belt a snap. The Cipher goes a step further by adding a dial that locks or unlocks the belt for micro-adjustment with a quick spin.

The buckle is machined, in-house, from aluminum and given a number of finishes based on user preference. The belt itself is also available with a number of options including single or double layers of scuba webbing as well as a hybrid biothane option.

Carbon Tactics has launched this belt on Kickstarter. They are just a few days into the campaign and have already fully funded which is typically for them given their track record of delivering these crowd-funded projects.
