Today we're talking about the Helikon-Tex Rangemaster Gear Bag. We have been using this one for a few months now. Ever since we started hitting the range more often, we realized we got too much stuff to fit in a small backpack and the Rangemaster was the perfect solution.
Introduction to “1st impression” Recently we decided to create an extra value for our blog page, making extended blogposts require a lot of time which is not always easy to find. So rather than making blogs of our review videos we came up with the idea to do “1st impression” blogposts from new products we just got in our hands or products we have been using for some time, but feel we haven’t got enough experience with to make videos from. So today we’ll do our very first of these posts and it’s about Templars Gear their new PT6 Tactical Belt.
In 2021 the guys from Fieldarts reached out to us & introduced us to a new brand in Germany called DEFTEX©. So we met up with the guys from DEFTEX© and they were kind enough to provide us some samples for testing and feedback purposes. One of those samples is their so-called

Very recently Templar’s Gear released their very own non-ballistic training plates for plate carriers on the market. We were one of the first who got their hands on these and have been testing them ever since. So, in this

The Direct Action® Spitfire® MKII is an improved version based on Direct Action®’s popular Spitfire® plate carrier system.
