Operator Band – Live Fire Edition from RE Factor Tactical

RE Factor Tactical has introduced a new version of their popular Operator Band that incorporates Live Fire 550 Firecord because, duh, of course they did. It just make all the sense in their world. The 550 Firecord serves as a contrasting center strip in the appearance of the band and, in an emergency, it can be opened to access the inner tinder strands for fire starting. All other functions of the Operator Band remain intact in this new version.


RE Factor Tactical Adds New Colors to Buttstock Tourniquet Holder

RE Factor Tactical just restocked their Buttstock Tourniquet Holder and added two new color options: Ranger Green and Multicam. These holders attach to your carbine’s buttstock and secure most of the common TQs. The holder has two retention straps are joined by a cross piece that allows the user to quickly clear both straps at the same time in order to access the TQ.

Rocky Mountain Bullseye C.A.T. from TOPS Knives

Just over a week ago, TOPS Knives introduced their C.A.T. knives with a new grip pattern called Cryptic Cyber. Now they have released a second grip pattern option with a very cool back story.


The new Rockey Mountain Bullseye texture came about serendipitously! The folks at TOPS were machining handles when a machining error created a divot pattern in the surface of the grip slab. It looked good and it felt good so the only thing left to do was program the machine to make the mistake divots on purpose. I wish my mistakes turned out so well.


The new texture is available on the C.A.T. knives in both drop point and tanto. The C.A.T. series is a mainstay of the TOPS Knives lineup thanks to their handy size and versatile shapes.

TOPS Knives launched the new scales today and they are available at an introductory price in both the Tanto version and Hunter’s Point (drop point).

  • Thickness: 5/32″
  • Scales: Black G-10
  • Steel: 1095
  • Sheath: Kydex with multi-position steel clip

Armageddon Gear EDC-AK Gear Case

AKs make great truck guns and Armageddon Gear makes a great case for your folding stock AK truck gun. Their EDC-AK Gear Case is designed to hold an AK with a 16″ barrel and folding stock along with some essentials to support the rifle like a bandoleer and first aid gear.


The EDC-AK Gear Case has a top loading design that is very robust and presents the AK in a grip-first orientation so you can remove it from the case quickly. It also features removable shoulder straps so that it can be carried like a backpack. The straps can be packed into the lid when they are not in use. The slick exterior of the case makes it easy to move in and out of tight spaces and gives less of a clue as to what is inside.

CLEER Medical Pocket Kits

CLEER Medical has introduced two new pocket medical kits. To give you an idea of how compact they are, they will fit in a Blue Force Gear Single M4 Ten-Speed Pouch. That is tiny!

There are two options. The EDC Pocket Kit is the more complete but larger kit of the two. The Minimalist Pocket Kit is extremely compact but fairly spartan in terms of contents as you might guess from the name.


EDC Pocket Kit (3″ x 6″ x 1.2″):

  • (1) Celox Rapid 24″
  • (1) Exam Gloves, Pair Size L
  • (1) CLEER Medical Easy Tape
  • (1) RATS Tourniquet
  • (1) LokSak bag (which can double as a small occlusive dressing)


Minimalist Pocket Kit (3″ x 4.5″ x .96″):

  • (1) Celox Rapid 24″
  • (1) Exam Gloves, Pair Size L
  • (1) CLEER Medical Easy Tape
  • (1) LokSak bag (which can double as a small occlusive dressing)
