OR Snow Show 2020 | Matbock

Innovation, a word thrown around in many industries, should I say it has almost lost its meaning? Not as bad as “gamechanger” for sure.
Well, there are few companies in this space to which this term truly belongs. Matbock is certainly one of them.
Without any affiliation with the company I can say that every year I look forward to seeing what they have been working on and they always surpass the expectations.

Most of their products could be categorized simple but clever. Their process? With a lot of experience under their belt they provide solutions to problems that top tier operators have with an extremely direct development process. Sometimes some very specific solutions appear strange to all of us that are not in that community because we are not even aware of the existence of the problem.

Now they are expanding to other industries, analyzing the problems that are similar to those of the SOF space, by tailoring products for various applications.

Graverobber Medical System

Developed in conjunction with CRO Medical, the Graverobber medical system is a customizable mission specific medical kit that allows the medic to swiftly carry and easily manage the medical assets allocated to the team without excessive redundancy that may hinder the operation.

This is basically a modular and scalable system based around a different types of packpacks designed to be used individually or in a system. The Graverobber allows to carry a mountaineering-style ruck near the objective and, once in the proximity of the objective, to detach the assault medic bag for the more kinetic and dynamic part of the mission. All while the surgical ans/or sustainment pack remains with the element that has established an holding point from which further medical assistance can be provided.

Inside the sustainemnt pack the inserts can be detached and used individually to provide medical assistance to multiple casualties in multiple locations.

OR Snow Show 2020 | Beyond Clothing: New Products for 2020

Right after SHOT Show 2020 Beyond Clothing exhibited at Outdoor Retailer Snow Show 2020 in Denver.
On display were some products intended to launch in Spring 2020 season as well as some that will be available in fall.

As always the main concept behind Beyond is not to look at the single piece of clothing by itself but to the entire clothing system, a much needed point of view in this industry. A very strong theme is also sustainability, which is becoming a very key topic in the outdoor industry, considering how the customer basis is tied with nature and how it is unaware of the environmental footprint that equipment manufacturing has.

Outdoor Retailer Snow Show 2020 Beyond Clothing-1Outdoor Retailer Snow Show 2020 Beyond Clothing-2

The DNA of Beyond lays in the education on how to use the system to achieve maximum efficiency and effectiveness. This mindset transpires through many of the new products that they are presenting, designed to used for multiple applications.
While many companies focus on providing tailored solutions for their specific customer base (usually with few applications in mind), Beyond is catering to a much wider crowd by focusing on the only aspect that different end-users have in common: protection from the environment.
This really requires some reflection on what is actually at the core of what we are trying to do. To be able to experience a much broader spectrum of the outdoors a single $500 jacket is insufficient and, at the same time, not everyone is able to drop $2000 for an adequate system.

This is where the choice of a direct to consumer model of a system-based company is the true enabler for those that need clothing for what it intended for: a tool to protect from the elements.
Understanding whether a company operates around a system approach or a single-garment approach is not an easy task for the average consumer; often times there are subtle characteristics that differentiate the two models. It is quite easy to be attracted by the bells and whistles of a garment only to find out that by itself it is not going to help in the adventure. While, in the meantime, having blown half of the budget that was intended for the whole system.

Respecting the environment is an extremely common trend in the clothing/sporting industry. Unfortunately it is one of the most hypocritical out there.
Polymerization, treatments applied to threads and fabrics, using excessive DWR on low-quality materials and “fashion” mindset (product quickly becoming “old”) are just some of the reasons why the outdoor clothing industry is  extremely polluting.

Maybe a system-based approach to clothing could help?

  • Whenever something is worn-out you only need to update/fix/upgrade that single piece.
  • A more modular system is more versatile and doesn’t require many climate-specific items.
  • Most of the garments can be used all year (Skiing, hiking, emergency…).

It’s a sensitive topic but it’s necessary.
Both at SHOT and at OR Snow Show there was a big focus sensitizing people about protecting not only the endangered species but also the wilderness and backcountry.

BEYOND SHOT 2020

It’s always special to come back to the Artisan year after year. This picturesque venue seem to be the perfect fit for the creative Beyond parties. For SHOT 2020, presented by Beyond Clothing and Blackfish, the night featured a live performance by Naughty by Nature and a Dueling DJ-set with Asian Star (Tokyo) and D Triple J (USA).

As always a key role of the night was the effort to raise funds and awareness for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation and the Endangered Species Protection Agency. Through a collaboration with the ESPA the invited guests were able to encounter an endangered animal, a male tiger.

SHOT 2020 | Oakley SI

This year we had a chance to see some of the new Oakley SI products before SHOT at the First Spear Range Day Here are all the products release for SHOT 2020.

HNBL

This year Oakley SI has introduced the HNBL model, designed to provide ballistic protection without compromising comfort. One of the main features is the lens change mechanism that allows to quickly change from among clear and Prizm ballistic lenes. It is also possible to introduce an RX lens without the use of an inner frame to hold it. This really simplifies the use of those that want ballistic protection in addition to a prescription lens. Size and feel wise this model resembles the Shocktubes, a very popular item from Oakley SI but its “Achille’s heel” was the need for a tool to change the lenses.

The Line Miner is the latest addition to the Snow Goggle line of Oakley SI.

SHOT 2020 | B&T

With the growing popularity of the P320 platform B&T is manufacturing accessories to accommodate for PDW use of the M17 / M18 models. These grips feature a built-in spring-loaded stock that allow to shoulder the weapon for longer or more precise shots. This solution does not take up too much space and still allows to mount a weapon mounted light in the exact same position. Slide mounted MRDS also work exactly like on any standard RDS ready pistol and reciprocate with each shot fired.
It is possible to holster these weapons making them very capable sidearms.

Also interesting is a chassis for Glock pistols. It features a reciprocating charging handle but the RDS remains fixed in the same position, also for faster follow-up shots.

SHOT 2020 | Matbock

As always, every year at SHOT, it’s a pleasure to see what Matbock has been working on. The close relationship that this company has with the SOF community is outstanding and really shows in their problem-development-test-solution approach. I have never once heard that a new product was designed “because the market is going in this direction”. Many times they approach the design of a product starting from the task the user is intended to accomplish while wearing/using it.

The Sheath 2.0

The Sheath 2.0 is a belt intended for rigger and helo use but without compromising the tactical feature. In fact it is possibile to attach both pouches and holsters without losing the lanyard retention system. Keep in mind that this is only a prototype. They have incorporated a metal piece that ensures the maximum level of safety. In addition they have incorporated two female Cobra buckles to the belt, this allows the user to quickly attach two leg loops only when needed.

This a belt that will be greatly appreciated by any uses that deals with some sort of vertical variable.

Strap Claw

A product designed for all of those that are annoyed by the pack straps while wearing a plate carrier. This accessory clips on the pals webbing of the upper front portion of the plate carrier and keeps the straps of any assault pack or rucksack away from the pocket of the shoulder. It releaves a lot of the tension that is applied to the shoulder area from the pack and allows the user to shoulder a rifle much more freely and naturally. All without any sternum strap that could get in the way of the equipment worn on the plate carrier.

New K9 Leash

In many dynamic situations the K9 handler is not able to unbuckle the dog’s harness from the leash and often times the K9 is let go with the leash still attached. This of course can be of great hazard because the leash can be caught on object or even worse, team mates.
Matbock has developed a leash that can allows the K9 handler to deploy the K9 using one hand and without loosing eyecontact with the threat. A lot of effort was put into designing a leash that would not free the K9 accidentally.

Load Ready Utility Bags

The new Load Ready Utility Bags offer a durable utilitarian tactical storage solution to plastic bins commonly used for vehicle gear storage. Available in three sizes – medium, medium tall and large – the bags are built for the toughest wear and tear. Each bag is protected on the bottom by an abrasion resistant, waterproof, dual layered panel and constructed with 1050D Nylon, heavy-duty thread, reinforced bartacks and dual layered webbing. A roll-up, heavy-duty mesh lid zips shut or rolls open with a toggle/loop system. Side grab handles or carry handles offer different carry options, and an internal mesh pocket keeps smaller items accessible. The new Load Ready Haul Pack features the same heavy-duty construction but converts from a tote bag to a backpack for transitions from car to trail. (MSRP: Pack $109.99, Utility Large $74.99, Medium Tall $64.99, Medium $59.99)
