Enforce Tac 2018 | Explorer Cases

Explorer Cases 15416

With an internal length of 1540 mm (60 5/8 in) this is case is able to store an protect a fully assembled .50 BMG, while still offering the same functionalities of a high-end gun case.

MUB (Multi Utility Box)

This weather resistant case is designed to be a logistically practical and efficient solution for transporting and storing equipment that can better withstand exposure to the elements: therefore it doesn’t offer the same degree of protection from weather or impacts and it comes at a very interesting price. The MUB is offered in two sizes and features multiple carrying methods, including wheels and drag-handle. In our opinion this case is ideal for soft goods and any type of equipment that is voluminous and less fragile that precision instruments or optics. This would be a perfect storing / transporting solution for plate carriers, helmets and gun belts.

Magpul Suppressor Cover SHOT Show 2018 Urban Survivor Blog (5)

Magpul has released a new product which aims at bringing a practical solution to a long unresolved issue that professional users have, suppressor overheat.

Magpul Suppressor Cover SHOT Show 2018 Urban Survivor Blog (3)

The Magpul Suppressor Cover – 5.5” is the first product of its kind able to stand up to the extreme temperatures caused by extended strings of semiautomatic and automatic fire to protect the user and equipment against burns while also speeding up the cooling process. Constructed of a heat-resistant polymer sleeve overlaid onto a raised stainless steel heat shield that mounts directly to the suppressor body with steel clamps, the Magpul Suppressor Cover – 5.5” minimizes heat transfer to keep external cover temperatures up to 1000 degrees F cooler than the surface of the suppressor and allows cooling airflow across the can. Additionally, it serves as an enhanced thermal insulator and signature reduction device, significantly mitigating mirage distortions to the shooter’s sight picture, reducing the likelihood of impact damage to the suppressor body, and lessening the chance of accidental heat-related injury or damage to personnel or equipment during weapon firing and cool down. Optimized for 1.5” outer diameter round suppressors with a body length of approximately 5.5” (not including attachment hardware / interface) such as the Surefire SOCOM556-RC2.  Other lengths are in the works and are coming soon.


Made in U.S.A.

Explorer Cases 9413 | Review

Hard cases have become an effective tool in equipment and valuable protection; in certain industries, for example expedition photography, it has been a vital necessity for sustaining the lifespan of fragile instruments in harsh environments.

With the development and expansion of industries and activities which involve the use, transportation or storage of valuable and expensive equipment there has been a growing need for an effective and reliable system that could provide this degree of protection.
When it comes to the firearm industry there is also a fourth factor that corroborates the need of a hard case: the security. Whether it is for travel for a match or tactical training away from home, for staying overnight in a hotel, or simply for raising the level of security of a truck gun the implementation of a tool such as a hard case could mean the difference between a gun in the hands of a good guy and a gun in the hands of a bad guy.

This contemporary firearm training [nomad] lifestyle that involves a much more dynamic and mobile approach to tactical training, in which users often times move domestically in the US requires a high degree of protection, security and practicality. A tool such as a high quality hard case becomes almost as a “mobile safe”.

Because of the extremely high quality standards, Explorer cases are able to sustain the shift of action from an everyday “urban” approach of protection from iniquitous acts to the conventional protective purpose from the elements out in the field; which is the actual origin of this type of case.
Depending on type of use, time of exposure and other key climatic factors, the field can be an extremely demanding environment to which only very few quality-focused cases can withstand.

The gasket’s design is usually a noticeable failure point for water-tightness; in order to overcome this possible issue, Explorer, has focused on the manufacturing process rather than the design itself. Instead of utilizing the ubiquitous rubber-polymer tube of which the connection point could potentially be the weakest point, they have implemented a system that extrudes a foam-like material directly into the gasket housing. This innovative manufacturing process has proven to be effective and reliable.

The IP67 waterproofness rating and the fact that it is retained without compromise throughout the lifespan of the case is directly related to the ruggedness of this gasket design, compared also to the weaker hollow-tube design.
Temperatures play a key role in the longevity of a gasket or sealant and Explorer does not utilize rubberized material O-ring or glue. As the temperature is decreased the rubber passes from a soft (easily deformed) and elastic state to a more rigid state and finally to a brittle glass-like condition. On the other hand glues tend to a detachment process when reaching higher temperatures, as well as freeze towards glaciation.

The water tightness is achieved also through an intrinsically mechanical strength of the closure design. The latches are sized to obtain a strong, secure and constant pressure along the perimeter between the case and the lid. Despite this the opening and closing process are facilitated mainly by two factors: the double-action of the mechanism (with two pivotal points) and the relatively large surface of the latch.

The hinges mechanism is reliable and the action is smooth and repeatable.
The hinges are designed to optimize the efficiency on the field by opening up to 90Deg and by staying open without the necessity of two-hand manipulation. Unlike other products on the market, the Explorer case does not tip over when opened empty…
Differently from similar products on the market, once closed, the Explorer cases latches do not make any [annoying] noise, which (even though it is not carried into direct combat action) is still, in our opinion, inappropriate in a “Tactical” weapons case.

One aspect in which we really wanted to focus was the tolerances between the parts of the assembly. The very high grade of precision in the dimensions of the lid, main case and metal rod protects the mechanism from any external agent, even after prolonged use in dusty and sandy environments.
The smoothness of the hinge mechanism is usually a substantial differentiation between high quality cases and less quality after some use in the field.

The case is provided with three handles, a primary, larger, and two secondary smaller. The handles are well built and very durable, the injection-molded polymer is tough and does not bend under the heavy load of firearms. Explorer produces all hinges with extreme accuracy; even after prolonged field use, with the case exposed to the elements, the movement of the handle is solid and repeatable, and the metal rod does not show weak points or corrosion. Even after the testing and evaluation process the handles stay in position, which is an explicit indication of quality.

The two secondary handles locate at the exact opposite side from each other provide a very comfortable two-men carrying solution, especially with heavier weapon systems. Of course with the 9413 one could only fit enough items, but with the larger models this feature could be vital.

In the central portion of the case, between the primary-handle attaching points, are located the air valve and the luggage nametag. The manual pressure release valve is a key component for operation with variable barometric excursion. The valve is designed with an internal stop ring, for preventing the user from overrunning it and completely extract it.
The nametag is protected by a translucent polymer shield and is only accessible when the case is open.

Four latches are located relatively to the four hinges of the case. Next to the four latches are positioned four padlock-able points, and with two of them being metal plated there is the possibility to safely lock the case with either standard padlocks or TSA approved ones. Explorer offers three different padlocks, a combination, a heavy-duty brass with key and TSA-approved. The combination padlock is designed with the chamfering of the edge inherently constructed in the dimensions, covering the entire pin (for enhanced security from tools such as bolt cutters) as well as tightly securing it and preventing it from swinging, which may be causing noise.

The case is provided with ball bearing wheels that enable a more comfortable and effective transportation of heavier items. The wheels are exposed enough to allow the case to be pulled from a wide range of angles, but the overall dimensional extremities still allow the case to stand in the upright position very solidly, even when loaded with firearms. The wheels are designed to be utilized also for pulling the case from a horizontal surface with an extremely low angle; this provides a high level of mobility when loading or unloading weapons from trucks of vehicles.
Even after carrying the case in all types of terrains for several months, the wheels spin smoothly and freely, do not show any stress point or failure points, and are still very silent.

The foam insert set consist of a convoluted panel for the lid, two pre-cubed sections and a thin stabilizing layer for the body. The pre-cubed foam allows for a high degree of customization by the user and seems to withstand weight and time.

As for the material utilized the main case sections are manufactured from an injection molded copolymer Polypropylene compound, which seems to have a good balance between rigidity and elasticity, for maximum toughness and protection. Throughout the heat of the summertime, the case has not shown any brittleness from the extensive direct sunlight exposure.

On the bottom side of the case are located eight rubberized feet for better stability both on surfaces and for stacking.
The Explorer Cases 9413 comes in three color-ways: Black, Desert Sand and Military Green, all available with or without the foam insert.

Below are some details and specifications:

Blackhawk!® Cyane Dynamic Backpack | Review

The assault pack has become widely popular in the last years because of its versatility in very dynamic applications such as direct action. The main function of this platform is to provide an augmentation of carriage to the user without compromising speed and efficiency. Because the environments in which the current asymmetrical wars are fought are usually very confined and hostile it is mandatory for the operator on the field to be as agile and unrestricted as possible, we are therefore experiencing an evolution in equipment in which compact, slick and efficient designs are prominent.

The category of direct action assault pack has morphed into a carrying system that varies in volume from the size of a Camelbak® to a maximum of 30 liter (usually and in theory). The main function of an assault pack is to allow the user to carry either supplemental combat essential equipment or lower-priority items without compromising mobility.

This type of equipment has gained a lot of traction also in the non-operative world due to the mythicization of “high speed” special operation forces in popular culture. Nevertheless the function of such a system is to allow the user to carry extra essential equipment into theater and to be utilized as a site exploitation bag if need arises.

Because of its essential nature the Blackhawk! Cyane Dynamic Pack is not provided with an internal rigid structure but it features a sheet of flexible polymer, of which the main purpose is to hold shape when the pack is empty.

The design of the pack focuses on the efficiency of movement and operation of the user; the narrow design and the ability to attach it directly to a plate carrier render this pack even more compact and volumetrically low profile.

Despite the very compact size, the pack is comprised of 5 separate pockets, which define the high level of usability of the pack. Because it is extremely vital, in dynamic environments, to be able to quickly and efficiently access essential gear, this feature is highly valuable.

In the upper area is locate the routing port for hydration and comms, which makes it convenient for ambidextrous use.

The numerous attachment points on the outer portion of the pack allow for external attachment. It could be said that is even possible to securely attach more equipment on the outside that it is possible to stow it inside.

The Cyane Dynamic Pack is provided with various sections of PALS webbing. Four main areas are spread throughout the outer surface of the pack: two lateral sections (7 rows x 3 columns each side) and two frontal sections (on the top 3 rows x 3 columns | on the bottom 3 x 4 columns). The size and position of the PALS panels allow to capitalize the area available with, for example, two or more ammo pouches.

During night MTB rides, and for signaling in general, we have secured on this surface red and green Chemlights or Nitizes on the respective side. The loop panel on the 3 x 3 PALS section is extremely useful for attaching S&S Precision V-Lites or Manta Strobes. It could also fit the CORE Survival HELSTAR 6 but because of its larger size and weight we don’t recommend it.

The shoulder straps are provided with copious attachment points, both vertically and horizontally, allowing the user to attach items like Princeton Tec light, strobes and of course hydration tubes.


The sternum strap can be moved vertically in order to accommodate most body types. The padding of the shoulder straps is extremely comfortable while maintaining a very low profile. Usually comfort comes at the expense of size, in this case Blackhawk! was able to manage a good balance between the two.

Since the pack can be directly mounted to a plate carrier via Pals/Molle, the shoulder straps are removable. In order to attach the pack directly it is necessary remove the padded back-panel.

The inner portions of the pack are very minimal in design and material, the only internal organization available it the mesh pocket for hydration which is voluminous enough to accommodate up to a 3L reservoir.

The beavertail design allows the user to expand the size for storing items like rain gear, helmets or even tripods. With a very secure 6 points attachment the beavertail section can be tighten and released via QD buckles and webbing. When not expanded the beavertails “pocket” collapses and can be really reduced in footprint via adjustment points. The beavertail design effectively secures the equipment carried, this portion could be utilized as a secondary site exploitation carriage if need arises.

The inner portion of the backpack can accommodate more sensible material, like night vision and thermal; while the more exposed and more accessible pockets can be utilized for IFAK or medical kits in general.

The size and nature of this pack could be very suitable for transporting extra equipment during quick night hunting sorties.

The layout above displays the equipment that we utilize for night mountain biking in very rural areas. Everything shown is either worn or carried in the Cyane Dynamic Pack.

We have been using this pack since last spring and the quality of construction is on point where it needs to be. We would define “efficient” the quality of material and craftsmanship because it provides very good durability while maintaining a relatively light weight and a very competitive price point. The material used for the pack are Multicam® certified CORDURA® fabric and 500 rip stop fabric.

For a pack with this kind of design and volumetric capacity we have found some interesting applications that go beyond the operative theater, from hiking and mountain biking to climbing.

Overall, this backpack has a great potential for this industry. The average “tactical” user lives his daily life with a mindset that is tightly connected to efficiency and practicality; with this pack, because of its size and design it is possible to apply that same mentality and mindset of preparedness also to sports and outdoor activities in general. The Cyane Dynamic Pack is also available in solid colors for a more settle presence (Black, Coyote Tan, OD, Ranger Green and Urban Grey).

Blackhawk also produces a slicker version that does not have PALS webbing panels on the front and on the sides: the Cyane™ Stealth Pack. It also comes without the direct attachment to the plate carrier.

We appreciate the opportunity given by Blackhawk! to review this product.

Outdoor Research Infiltrator Waterproof Jacket | Review

Outdoor Research manufactures, without a doubt, some of the finest textile products in the outdoor industry. The Seattle-based company has mainly built its  brand around the climbing, mountaineering and exploring community; and is now gradually increasing traction also in  the tactical-military apparel market.

In the past OR, has manufactured gloves, beanies, hats, bivies and other products specifically oriented for the tactical industry. At SHOT Show 2017 we have covered the launch of a new line of tactical apparel(LINK), designed to be extremely versatile thanks to a modular layering system.

The first garment that has been released is the outer hard shell, the Infiltrator jacket.
Compared to a PCU (or Protective Combat Uniform) the Infiltrator jacket would be a level 6, which consists in a non-insulated hard-shell garment. In a PCU system the level 6 jacket and/or pant should be worn both with and without insulation underneath as it is designed to provide water protection both in warm and cold environments, as well as during both dynamic and static activities.

As we all know, insulation and warmth come at the expense of size and bulkiness, and therefore there is an issue with the mobility of the user, since traditional hard-shell fabric don’t provide any elasticity.

The revolutionary feature of Outdoor Research Infiltrator jacket is the GORE-TEX® Fabric with Stretch Technology, which is designed to solve the previously mentioned issues.

There are two specific advantaged related to the elasticity that we have experienced in the testing process: unaffected agility and ability to comfortably add layers underneath.

Unrestricted freedom of movement during high performance activities or gestures related to weapon manipulation. The GORE-TEX® Fabric with Stretch Technology panels are strategically placed in high mobile areas of the body, such as the inner-arm/ armpit as well as back / lats. These key points need to anatomically be free to expand in order provide enough liberty of movement.

Usually it is possible to feel a slight impeded movement when doing ready-up drills when wearing standard waterproof jacket; if you don’t, chances are that the garment fits loosely (which may be good for mobility but not as good for bulkiness).

With the Infiltrator, those key areas are well stretched and shooting with the jacked feels the same as shooting without, which in our opinion is the ultimate goal for a “tactical” garment manufacturer.

Ability to layer even with a very athletic fit.

The strategically placed stretch fabric panels provide a close fit in warm climates in which the jacket is worn without insulated layers underneath. At the same time, the fabric can stretch and expand to accommodate voluminous insulation layers in colder environments.

Clearly visible the tension within the stretch fabric when assuming the prone position.

We appreciate the athletic cut of the Outdoor Research products; it is one of the features that differentiate their products from standard “military” manufacturers.

The background in the alpine, climbing, mountaineering and high-performance outdoor markets has brought a great level of know-how on their drawing board when designing a new tactical apparel line that would render the user’s movements as efficient as possible; we have, in fact, experienced negligible restriction of movement.

Freedom of movement, lightweight, pack-ability and durability of textiles are features that have been improving the “tactical” apparel segment and have originated within the performance-based outdoor community.

The streamlined design of the Infiltrator jacket provides higher comfort when wearing plate carriers, chest rigs or even backpacks, especially in dynamic environments.

The two areas in which we applied thoroughly testing were the sections considered to be under the most pressure when wearing a plate carrier, a backpack or a chest rig: the yoke and the shoulders.

The presence of a stretch panel in the cervical area of the neck provides a high degree of comfort and, in conjunction with the other stretch panels, keeps the yoke and shoulder areas wrinkle free under the weight of equipment. Under heavy rain, the fabric has kept waterproofing also in the areas in which pressure was directly applied.


As with all GORE-TEX® hard shell textiles, in warm and humid climates, the fabric has difficulty expelling moisture and heat from the inside of the garment. Therefore, we believe that quick drying is a mission essential feature that both the GORE-TEX® Fabric with Stretch Technology and the “standard” all-weather GORE-TEX® Military fabric are equipped with.


The hood was designed with a high degree of versatility in mind. It allows the user to comfortably cover the head when wearing a helmet as well as without headgear.

The “Halo-Hood” consists of a draw cord that runs the whole circumference of the head for precise adjustments and can be controlled via a cord-lock located in the occipital area of the head. The cord is enclosed in a mesh compartment sewn inside the hood, in our opinion this is a key feature if one uses tactical helmets that, equipped with lights and rails, may be caught by the hood itself.

The “Halo-Hood” provides extremely important adjustability especially if a helmet is not worn, due to the larger size of the hood in order to accommodate most helmets.

With or without headgear, the adjustments allow the user to closely secure the hood to the head; and because of the stretch panel located in the cervical area of the neck there is a large freedom movement (extension/flexion, lateral bend and especially rotation).

Vertical adjustment is provided by symmetrical draw cords accessible from the front that cinch down the hood from the temple area and are secured by cord-locks.

The helmet worn in the photos is an OpsCore helmet equipped with two S&S Precision V-Lites, a CORE Survival Helstar 6, a Princeton Tec Charge MPLS, a Princeton Tec Remix MPLS and a Oakley SI Alpha Ballistic Halo™ Goggle.

The hood provides protection to the elements even with this equipment mounted. We believe that all “tactical” oriented hard-shell should have such a feature-rich helmet.


The side of the jacket features a panel of GORE-TEX® Fabric with Stretch Technology that runs from the armpit all the way to the waistline; this section mostly allows the jacket to expand when worn on top of other insulated layers. The armpit has a no-seam construction and is not equipped with vent zippers, which could become uncomfortable after wearing with backpack straps and rifle slings for a prolonged period of time.

In order to cool down the user can open two symmetrical side vents located at the 4 and 8 o’clock positions. The two YKK® AquaGuard® Vislon zippers can  be opened from the bottom, exposing the belt area or from the top, retaining a higher degree of protection from the elements with the internal storm-flap while cooling down.

The side vents can also be used to access holsters or belt mounted equipment. Shown in the photo below is a Safariland ALS holster with low-ride belt attachment.


The jacket features two capacious symmetrical front pocket (160 x 300 mm) that can be accessed via AquaGuard® zippers. The opening of the pockets is placed high enough in order to not interfere with harnesses or belt straps of backpacks.

The inner part of the pocket is built with a mesh fabric in order to allow the pocket to be used of venting, giving the user two different techniques for cooling down.

The materials used are undoubtedly innovative and, in our opinion, are truly going to raise the industry standard. Overall the Infiltrator jacket has been utilized for rucks, runs, hikes and for shooting and it does not show any sign of wear.

The equilibrium among freedom of movement, lightweight, durability, breathability, climatic adaptability and overall waterproofness truly render the Outdoor Research Infiltrator jacket a unique piece on the market and a must have in any environment.

The Infiltrator jacket is available both in Berry-Compliant and non Berry-Compliant version in Multicam, Coyote and Mas Grey.

Blue Force Gear | Micro Trauma Kit Now!

At SHOT Show 2017 Blue Force Gear has introduced the latest addition to their line of trauma/medical pouches. The Micro Trauma Kit Now! was developed for all applications in which a lower profile is a necessity while still carrying essential lifesaving supplies.

Like the bigger version (Urban Survivor Blog, review of the Trauma Kit Now!), the Micro Trauma Kit Now! consists of two components: the outer pouch and the removable inner supply carriage.

SHOTShow2017_BlueForceGear_Micro Trauma Kit Now (1)

The Micro TKN was designed as an EDC trauma kit for law enforcement professionals, prepared citizens, or hunters.  Deployment of critical first aid supplies can be done with one hand or a single finger from either the left or right side by pulling the BLIP featured pull tabs.  The Micro TKN consists of two main components – the outer MOLLE or Belt mounted pouch utilizing the Ten-Speed technology, and a removable insert that keeps medical supplies organized.

SHOTShow2017_BlueForceGear_Micro Trauma Kit Now (2)

SHOTShow2017_BlueForceGear_Micro Trauma Kit Now (8)

The front outer pouch features a laser cut cross with several signal indicators – black insert, red, or highly reflective glow-in-the-dark insert.  The end user can decide which indicator works best for their use or leave all the inserts out for a pattern matched front for maximum concealability.

SHOTShow2017_BlueForceGear_Micro Trauma Kit Now (5)

The Micro Trauma Kit NOW!™ is available in several variations with or without medical supplies.

FROG.PRO New Products for 2017

FROG.PRO produces some of the finest tactical products found today on the market. It is extremely rare to find a company with a comparable level of attention to detail: both in manufacturing processes and in materials. From the stitching to the innovative fabrics and hardware their products are a work of art designed truly to enhance the performance of the operator.
FROG.PRO has developed a new PALS system cut that enhances the mechanical properties, both strength and abrasion resistance, without compromising the overall weight of the package. This system revolves around the implementation of the LAHYCO® fabric, which consists of a composite of Hypalon® and 500D Cordura®.
The proprietary FROG.PRO LC (Laser Cut) is compatible with standard MOLLE attachments but performs at its best with the Whiskey Two Four (WTFix) straps.

Easy Access Backpack

The easy access backpack is designed to provide each operator the ability to access its own gear without dismounting the whole kit. For many years we have seen on the battlefields and on the ranges the use assault backpacks in conjunction with plate carriers and chest rigs. This method created inefficiency in the operator’s movement due to the overlap of the straps of each piece of kit. The industry then moved to a new standard, the fixed assault backpack mounted with MOLLE/PALS on the back panel of the plate carrier, this of course changed the dynamics since the operator was unable to reach and utilize the equipment mounted on his back.
The FROG.PRO Easy Access Backpack is designed to allow the operator to secure the pack without the overlap of straps (especially in the area in which the long weapon is shouldered).

frogpro-eab-easy-access-backpack-multicam-7 frogpro-eab-easy-access-backpack-multicam-6 frogpro-eab-easy-access-backpack-multicam-5 frogpro-eab-easy-access-backpack-multicam-3

The pack features a bungee cord internal retention system and a loop Velcro® panel deigned for securing mags, frags, flashbangs, or M18 smoke. The ingenious and innovative design of the zippers allow the operator to access to the content of the bag both from one side and the other. When the bag is deployed in the front of the operator the whole system is turned upside-down, hence the users need two opposite points of access.

This full-size plate carrier provides the comfort and modularity needed for longer missions. The laser cut PALS system delivers a mission-configurable package without compromising the lightweight of the plate carrier, two key features for prolonged use.
The straps are secured with hook and loop directly to the shoulder straps of the plate carrier so there is no extra padding needed, keeping a very low profile. It is then possible to customize the position of the pivoting point in any area along the shoulder strap of the plate carrier, providing an extremely high degree of customization, even in the field.

The versatile nature of the Easy Access Backpack allows the operator to utilize it an extra support of equipment during a mission or as a site exploitation bag.

Carrying a full size trauma kit in a highly populated urban environment is very challenging but the SFD-Responder is a very discreet solution for carrying medical equipment on a daily basis. Its placement on the ankle provides great versatility and takes advantage of an area of the body that is not usually utilized (except for ankle holster for backup pistols) and most times is easier to conceal.

COBRA Range Belt and LC-Kusazuri Sleeve

The COBRA Range Belt is designed to be a multi-functional belt system, it utilizes an Inner-belt to pass through the belt loops of the pants and attaches via hook and loop. The belt features a Cobra buckle with a D-Ring and can be used in conjunction with a lanyard for personal retention.

frogpro-cobra-range-belt-2 frogpro-cobra-range-belt-1

The newest version of the COBRA Range Belt features the option of the Laser Cut Loops embedded within the range belt itself. For a much more complete package of attachment options, FROG.PRO has designed the LC-Kusazuri Belt Cover, which features a much more stable option for MOLLE mounted pouches. The Kusazuri Belt Cover also features side openings for better integrating drop-leg systems or belt mounted holsters.

Long Range/Sniper Pack

This pack is the emblem of a modern modular design. Everything on this pack is customizable and user-configurable. Due to the “double layer” design, there are two main areas in which it is possible to store and organize gear. The outer layer consists of two panels with a laser-cut PALS interface that are divided by a zipper, which allows to gain access to the inner (and more protected layer). Also the inner layer is user-configurable via laser-cut PALS webbing. In order to maximize the real estate of the system on top of the zipper is located a retention system designed to secure a tripod (or possibly a long gun).

LC-14CR-SF Sniper Chest Rig

The sniper chest rig is a larger size chest rig (14 columns of PALS attachment) that is designed with the sniper and marksman role in mind. The key features of the chest rig revolve around the unusual and uncomfortable positions in which operators with these roles find themselves in.
The front zipper allows to split-open the rig and therefore to get closer to the ground (and more comfortably) in the prone position.
The unique design with the PALS sections purposely misaligned and the contoured architecture allows the chest rig to fit the user anatomically, and therefore to comfortably carry heavier loads.
Since this chest rig is likely going to be utilized in RECCE/patrol applications (quite possibly in conjunction with large pack), the 14 columns of misaligned PALS allow to carry ammo, radios, med kits and range estimation/nav gear, without impeding the bio-mechanics of the operator, in a position in which are readily available.



Blackhawk! Omnivore Multifit Holster | Review

Blackhawk Omnivore Multifit Holster

The Blackhawk! Omnivore holster is designed to accommodate more than 150 types of handguns. What differentiates the Blackhawk! Omnivore from other multi-fit holsters on the market is the retention mechanism.
In the past we have seen various manufactures designing a multi-fit holster that was based on multiple handgun sizes and makes. This did not allow almost any of the firearms to have a good (and safe) level of retention because of the large tolerances that were needed in order to fit multiple models of pistols. This design, based on an engineering compromise could not ensure the consistency in the draw, the re-holstering and most importantly the retention; it was therefore not considered a valuable product by most consumers in the industry.
Blackhawk! has rethought the whole process and has designed the holster around the weapon mounted light and not around the weapon itself. This allows to have a very precise mechanism that retains and secures the weapon inside the holster. Since most modern pistols feature a rail attachment systems of some sort (below the fore-end of the barrel) this design is able to standardize the way that the holster gains the purchase on the weapon system. Blackhawk! has also designed the holster around those users that are not interested in utilizing a weapon mounted light.

Blackhawk Omnivore Multifit Holster

The Omnivore Holster is available in three variants: for SureFire X300, for Streamlight TLR-1 and TLR-2, and for pistols without a light there is a very low-profile accessory that attaches to the rail.

Blackhawk Omnivore Multifit Holster

The firearm is secured with a level 2 retention system that can be disengaged with a thumb activated mechanism. We have tried without any success to pull the gun out of the holster without pressing the thumb switch, even with rough force.
It is remarkable that Blackhawk! has designed an efficient and secure retention system that only locks on the weapon mounted light and not on the weapon’s frame itself. In the past we have witnessed some issues with other holster manufacturers that failed in retaining the weapon (and the holster was designed to utilize the whole frame of the gun for the retention).

Blackhawk Omnivore Multifit Holster

The Omnivore holster also features a free-floating weapon design that was implemented mainly for avoiding any premature wear on the firearm caused by the friction of the draw and the re-holstering. We found this feature extremely useful when doing longer range sessions in which the firearm would heat-up and the free-floating design would help to cool it down faster. It is also useful for eliminating any issued with debris and dirt that may interfere with the weapon in rougher environments.

Blackhawk Omnivore Multifit Holster

The thumb release is provided with three different sizes and it features a rubberized texture for a secure engagement under critical stress. With the thumb release mechanism adjusted to the correct size of the hand, the draw is very smooth and efficient; and with some practice it can deliver a very quick pistol presentation. The retention mechanism doesn’t disengage if the weapon is pulled at the same time, for added protection and security for all duty applications.

Blackhawk Omnivore Multifit Holster

The holster comes with two different injection molded belt attachments, a standard curved belt loop and a paddle. Once the preferred attachment system is bolted to the holster, the whole system is very solid and does not bend or loosens under the weight of the sidearm.

Blackhawk Omnivore Multifit Holster

We have mainly used the standard belt loop because it can accommodate both larger tactical belts (works also with a Cobra buckle) as well as smaller standard leather belts, for which Blackhawk! does provide an attachment that eliminates any unwanted movement.
It is also possible to attach the belt loop with various angles for better efficiency with the draw or for some specific requirements.
Blackhawk has kindly given us the chance to try and test this product, and after two months of hard use, the rugged and tough nature of the holster comes to the surface. The finish and the injection-molded frame still hold their shape and detail even after some bad falls and the retention system is as crisp and consistent as when it was new.

Blackhawk Omnivore Multifit Holster

In a world of expensive and custom-made tactical products, we appreciate how Blackhawk has successfully designed what is, in our opinion, a high quality, affordable and effective standardized system that is capable of delivering great performance for most users of different segments of this industry.

SHOT Show 2017 | SureFire MasterFire Holster System

Masterfire Holster System


The Masterfire is a holster systems that indexes off of the weapon light. The holster covers only the weapon mounted light and the trigger guard and therefore allows almost any size of handgun to be holstered. Since the muzzle of the gun does not intersect the holster, there isn’t any interference with accessories mounted on the gun. It is then possible to mount suppressors, RDS or other various accessories and mods.

shotshow2017_surefire-masterfire-4 shotshow2017_surefire-masterfire-3
The Masterfire has a level 3 retention system and can be belt mounted. It works only with the proprietary line of lights, which includes 5 models (as of Feb 2017):

  • the XH 15 (with an entry level price of $150 and 350 Lumens)
  • the XH 35 (with a Max-Vision beam)
  • the XH 55 (with a Max-Vision beam and a Green Laser)
  • the proprietary X400 Ultra (with red and green laser)
  • the proprietary X300 Ultra H (with a Total Internal Reflection lens and 600 Lumens)

shotshow2017_surefire-xh15-4 shotshow2017_surefire-xh15-2 shotshow2017_surefire-xh15-1 shotshow2017_surefire-x400-uh-15 shotshow2017_surefire-x400-uh-14 shotshow2017_surefire-x400-uh-13 shotshow2017_surefire-x400-uh-7


The key feature of the holster is the way it interacts with the weapon mounted light, and therefore the lack of interference with accessories mounted on the gun (or any after market mods). On the Masterfire is placed a switch that interacts with the weapon mounted light when the gun is presented from the holster. When the switch is in the ON position the light, laser or light+laser combination will be turned on if the weapon is presented and turned OFF when the weapon is reholstered.
