textThe RACKminus from Blue Force Gear is an ultra lightweight chest rig made of BFG’s proprietary ULTRAcomp material, and the first in their line of MOLLEminus products. MOLLEminus is the thinnest and lightest modular load carraige standard currently on the market.
The EMDOM-MM Modular Magazine Carrier (MCC) is a carrier that can be used to organize magazines inside or outside a molle-compatible rifle case, as a Bandoleer/Chest rig, or as magazine pouches attached to armour or a rig.
The Helium Whisper attachment system from Blue Force Gear made its public debut at the 2012 SHOT show, and caused quite a stir. Taking MOLLE-compatible pouches to the next level, Helium Whisper utilizes a single piece back panel made from an ultra-light high performance laminate that reduces the number of parts and the weight and bulk of the attachment system.
The PIG Hydration Carrier from SKD Tactical is designed for the Source WXP 2L Hydration Bladder, and offers innovations that increase performance while minimizing bulk and weight.
The BCS AK47 Low Profile Chest Rig from Beez Combat Systems is a light weight chest rig designed to hold five AK47 magazines in five internal compartments with elastic retention.
The Hippie Panel is a low profile, hip-mounted MOLLE platform for use when the bottom of a armoured vest may interfere with belt mounted pouches. It is designed with the highest ride possible on the hip while providing enough drop from a belt for easy access to pouches mounted on it. The Hippie Panel is for folks who hate thigh and leg rigs, but need to use one.
The IAP (Immediate Access Pouch) is a low profile open-top magazine pouch designed for 30 or 20-round AR-15 magazines, which can be mounted on any rig, belt or molle leg panel. It provides the user with immediate, unrestricted access to the magazine without any flaps or bungees getting in the way of a quick and smooth extraction. It also allows one-handed insertion of magazines into the pouch.
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.
ITW Military Products has introduced the Gen 3 version of their FASTmag. It now comes in two versions – a MOLLE version and a belt-mounted version. What’s interesting is that the Belt version can be attached/stacked onto the front of the MOLLE version, creating a double FASTmag pouch for added capacity over the Gen 2 version.
Original SOE Gear now offers their take on the small, lightweight rig in the form of their Micro Rigs. Originally designed as bandoleers for a quick grab and go, the Micro Rigs can also be worn as mini-chest rigs for a more stable platform. There are two models: the AK/M4 Micro Rig, and the PALS Micro Rig.
