After calls for a more streamlined field oriented pack, FirstSpear developed the Field Ruck which offers more than 2000 cu in of carrying capacity. This week, we’ll take a look at this new pack which is an adaptation of the HOTEL 23, one of FirstSpear’s original products.
For one thing, They stripped all of the PALS webbing found on the HOTEL 23 the pack. On the Field Ruck, the side slots, which FS calls “wings”, accept tripods or other items such as trekking poles, antennas, probes, etc. Additional side carriage of gear such as rockets is facilitated by the 1.5″ compression straps. The buckles are large enough to find in the dark and can be manipulated in the cold, even while wearing gloves or mittens. The 6/12 compatible waist belt can also be removed when not needed in order to further streamline the ruck. Additionally, inside the bag, divider walls provide organization for the main compartment. These dividers can be pushed out of the way to maximize storage compartment space.
I really like the roll top closure at the top of the ruck’s bag. An extension skirt on the top of the main compartment can be rolled and secured with a side release buckle. This gives you a little extra carrying room. Additionally, there is a zippered opening at the top for quick access.
The Field Ruck’s bottom incorporates drainage holes.
The shoulder strap quick release is easy to manipulate and should be familiar to military users.
The lid can be removed and used on its own if needed.
Offered in Black, Coyote, Ranger Green and MultiCam.
(Wilsonville, OR) — Crimson Trace, America’s premium brand of laser sighting systems for firearms, has released “Training with Laser Sights,” a free video for all firearms owners to use as a tool to learn about laser sights—and how to use lasers during any firearms training. The video can be viewed at: www.trainingwithlasersights.com.
This educational video covers many benefits on the use of laser sights while providing specific details about how installing and using laser sights on a firearm can: increase muzzle direction awareness, aid with sight alignment, promote a proper sight picture plus improve trigger control. The detailed footage reveals that having laser sights installed on a firearm can make the shooter more accurate and confident by helping to improve the two most important shooting fundamentals: aiming and trigger control. Segments of the video reveal how a laser sight installed on a firearm increases safety.
Numerous firearms experts are featured in the video while they are shooting and training at Arizona’s Gunsight Academy. The experts discuss—plus shoot and show—the many advantages that laser sight systems provide when installed on a firearm. The informative video was created by Crimson Trace with support by the National Rifle Association’s Education and Training Division. The video is also designed to be a teaching aid in firearms courses.
“Training with Laser Sights” covers an issue that many concealed carry firearms owners seek to master—acquiring and maintaining a sight picture during low-light conditions.

New from Arc’teryx LEAF for 2015 is the Enhanced Combat Uniform.
Consisting of an Assault Shirt, Assault Pant and Recce Shirt, Arc’teryx has started from scratch, completely revamping their combat uniform offering. With Arc’teryx I expect to see a synthesis of material and design and this uniform is just that. Combining wearability and utility, the clothing moves with the body and features pockets that are patterned to lie flat, contain contents comfortably and not interfere with each other or other equipment.
Manufactured from No Melt/No Drip materials, sizes XS – XXL and offered in Black, Crocodile, Wolf and MultiCam.

You may be familiar with 20$Bandit, the designers of the Mini Kit and Micro Kit EDC pouch. Over the past year, they’ve been developing a new brand and website, Triple 7 Gear, which has just recently launched. Under the Triple 7 Gear name, the Mini and Micro Kits will continue to be manufactured as they were previously: by HonorPoint USA in the United States.
Accompanying the new brand is the launch of a brand-new product: The GEN 2 Mini Kit MK-7 in Coyote Brown / High VIZ. The bright orange high visibility interior not only provides good contrast for viewing contents, but also doubles as a signal panel in a pinch.
We look forward to seeing what new products will come out of the new Triple 7 Gear brand. You can check out the new site at www.triple7gear.com.
