Mission Spec, LLC (KS) is releasing two new accessory items meant for integration with other pieces of kit.
Mission Spec WingIt™ adds additional PALS/MOLLE space to your chestrig of choice allowing for more essential equipment to be carried. The two (left and right) panels integrate with the users chestrig via the hook Velcro backing and the side strap buckles, for redundancy. Virtually no space is wasted between the WingIt panel and the chestrig itself (see video). Chem-light/glove hangers are also included with the design.
The WingIt is compatible with almost all current generation standard chestrigs. Available in two sizes (small and large) customers should reference the overview video or information available at MissionSpec.com to make sure they are ordering the correct size for their chestrig.
Mission Spec PackStraps™-Enhanced were designed to integrate with industry packs that utilize a 1.5” webbing interface (see video, shown with HSP FlatPack) and to offer the user a comfortable padded shoulder strap that will help reduce fatigue over a period of long use.
This product can be used as backpack straps only or to integrate with industry standard chestrigs such as the Mission Spec MagRack5 line, HSP; D3CR-M, D3CR(x), D3CR-H, and Spiritus brand chest rigs (not a comprehensive list).
Both items are immediately available in the full standard line of Mission Spec colors and patterns. Custom colors and patterns can be obtained in small or large quantities. USA made with USA sourced components, berry compliant, and carry a Limited Lifetime Warranty. Both items have been built on a custom-level numerous times for customers. It was decided that Mission Spec would add them both to its list of regular offerings. Dealer inquiries are welcome. Items come with proper UPC identification and retail packaging.
Crusader Gear’s newest pouch allows users to carry up to 6 CZ Scorpion EVO magazines at once, each with its own bungee retainer. It will fit factory CZ magazines, Magpul’s PMAG 35 EV9 magazines, and Palmetto State Armory AK-V magazines.
The pouch is constructed from 1000D Cordura Nylon. It holds 6 magazines in two stacked rows of 3. They affix to any MOLLE compatible surface via 3 included MALICE Clips.
The new Horizontal Ten-Speed Single M4 Mag Pouch from Blue Force Gear (BFG) allows users to carry an AR-15 (or similar) magazine in a horizontal orientation where it can be faster to access and reclaim some otherwise unused space on gear. BFG’s Ten-Speed elastic and ULTRAcomp backing combine to make a pouch that is light, durable, and with excellent retention.
The Horizontal Ten-Speed Single M4 Mag Pouch is available in belt or MOLLE mount versions. The belt version includes a laser-cut One-Wrap adapter that can be affixed to almost any belt without having to remove the belt.
ATLAS is now offering the 5th generation of their Achilles Trauma Kit Ankle Band. The new version adds capacity and retention features while still keeping a thin, minimalist profile.
The new features include an additional 1.5″ sleeve and a removable retention strap for the 4″ bandage pocket. The Achilles Gen 5 retains the clever internal rescue hook sleeve of its predecessor. It is available on its own or pre-stocked with supplies as a kit.
Gadsden Dynamics has a stash of the Wold Grey materials necessary to build a limited run of Underground Partisan Chest Rigs in that color. The material likely won’t last long so act fast.
OV Innovations is developing a conversion kit that will allow end-users to mount FILBE shoulder harness to ALICE frames. This would certainly be an upgrade over the standard shoulder straps and FILBE straps are quite affordable ($10-20) compared to many aftermarket pad kits. Additionally, the plastic frame sheets that have replaced the ALICE frame have a reputation for breaking so this could be a solution.
This kit is still in development. Keep your eye on OVInnovations.com for updates.
RE Factor Tactical is now offering their popular Blasting Cap in Multicam Tropic. The Blasting Cap is a FlexFit cap with breathable mesh side and back panels, large front and back loop fields for patches and ID, and an interior signal panel.
They are available in two sizes (small/medium and large/extra large) and several colors and patterns in addition to the new Multicam Tropic version.
