The Alpha Bib from Arc’Teryx LEAF is the bib version of the Alpha Pant reviewed previously. Built for harsh winter conditions or wet weather, the Alpha Bib provides maximum moisture protection with enhanced mobility and breathability. Extending to just below the chest, the low-cut Alpha Bib shields against blowing snow or rain, and keeps the kidneys warm. It features articulated shaping for unrestricted movement, watertight cargo pockets, and full length side zippers for venting and ease of donning.
The EMDOM USA/MM GPS Pouch is a GPS pouch designed for the Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx or similarly-sized GPS unit that allows the user to operate and use the GPS unit without having to remove it from the pouch. This reduces the possiblity of the GPS unit being dropped during extraction and replacement in conventional pouches. The design enables the user to glance down at the GPS unit ‘on the go’ without having to hold it in his hand.
The EMDOM USA/MM Dragster Strap is designed to be an ultra compact emergency drag/utility strap that would be worn on a rigger’s belt or vest. Carried in it’s own pouch, along with carabiners or snap links (not included), the Dragster Strap is compact enough to be carried by anyone, and can be accessed at a moment’s notice.

Battle Arms Development (BAD) is offering an improved Bracket and Screw set that replaces the original bracket and screw on the issue Matech B.U.I.S. It features a thicker and stronger bracket and a stronger screw with smaller Allen head socket to minimize over-torquing.
ITS Tactical is launching their membership registration, and are giving away a one year Plank Owner Membership worth $50 to a militarymorons.com reader.
SKD Tactical’s new Gen 2 Enhanced BDU pants are a follow-on to their Enhanced BDUs released two years ago. While the Gen 1 Enhanced BDU pants were based on the standard mil-spec BDU pant in style and sizing, the Gen 2′s still retain the classic BDU cut and fit but with the addition of quite a few new features and changes.
Unfortunately, due to slight manufacturing irregularities from pant to pant, SKD has decided to offer them at a deep discount, rather than full retail.
The two lucky winners of the Revision giveaway are firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com (you will both be notified by email)! Each will receive a pair of Sawfly glasses. Stay tuned for the next Revision Eyewear Giveaway!
