The Khard 30 pack from the Arc’teryx LEAF made its debut at the 2013 SHOT Show, alongside with some others new packs in the LEAF lineup. In the past, many of LEAF’s packs were Arc’teryx’s civilian packs adapted to military/LE use; but this time, LEAF’s new packs were designed from the ground up for military use.
The Padded Multi-purpose Case (PMC) from EMDOM USA is finally back in stock in it’s 2nd Generation form, after a long wait.
The Blade 15 pack from the Arc’teryx is a svelte travel backpack with laptop and accessory compartments. Like its bigger brother, the Blade 21 (unfortunately now discontinued), it’s essentially an urban commuter backpack-style, messenger bag/briefcase/laptop case. Named for its volume (15L), it’s a sleeker and more comfortable alternative to a laptop briefcase for people on the go. It’s available in Black or Tungsten.
The Emergency Action Trunk (E.A.T.) from J-Tech Gear is a huge rolling equipment bag. At 135L, it’s large enough to hold more than most people can lift. It was originally designed as a deployment bag for military personnel but can be used as a ‘hold everything’ bag for avid shooters alike. The E.A.T. bag is more than a rolling duffle; it has much more organization than a simple duffle, to segregate and organize your gear.
The Light Weight Assault Pack from Grey Ghost Gear is a small day pack that’s designed for use as a stand-alone pack, a compression panel, or as a back panel for HPG’s Kit Bag. Its simple and streamlined design, combined with its modularity will appeal to those who appreciate function over fashion.
The Rider, Dagger and Razor Hydration packs from Source’s military division are designed specifically for ballistic vest integration. The Rider and Dagger use the simple but very effective X-QCA buckle system while the Razor uses molle straps. All of them are equipped with the new WLPS 3L hydration reservoir, which is baffled so that it has a 33% slimmer profile than conventional hydration systems. This creates a slimmer design which increases comfort for riding in a vehicle or wear under rucks.
The EMDOM USA/MM TNT-EM (Extended Mission) Bag is a larger version of the TNT Bag with a host of added features, and was developed by request of a U.S. Army unit that needed an overnight courier-type bag with the same features as the original TNT bag, only larger and with some specific requirements. The overall size of the bag has been increased from approximately 21â€ x 12â€ x 6â€ to 24â€ x 13â€ x 10â€ with side pockets expanded, making it perfect for longer trips instead of just EDC. It has been in use for about a year and a half with the original customer and EMDOM is now offering it to the public.
The Tarahumara Pack from Hill People Gear is a small day pack that’s designed for use as a stand-alone pack, a compression panel, or as a back panel for HPG’s Kit Bag. Its simple and streamlined design, combined with its modularity will appeal to those who appreciate function over fashion.
The moment EMDOM USA and I release a collaboration on a bag, someone invariably asks if we’re going to make it in other sizes. Well, in the case of the TNT (Tactical/Non-Tactical) GYM (GreY Man) Bag, we’ve made a slightly longer version, simply called the TNT GYM-E Bag (the ‘E’ means ‘Extended’). The TNT GYM bag was designed as a truly covert means of transporting an AR-15/M4 carbine and equipment, or up to two carbines, and the TNT GYM-E follows suit, but is able to accommodate longer weapons.
The Padded Multi-purpose Case (PMC) from EMDOM USA is a…padded, multi-purpose case. Originally designed as a protective case for carrying loaded rifle magazines, the addition of a few features makes it much more than that.
