Safariland Ballistics International Launches Line of Armor Solutions


ONTARIO, California – Safariland Ballistics International (SBI™) proudly announces today the launch of its premier line of armor solutions. Backed by a company with more than four decades of experience in engineering and manufacturing industry-leading body armor, the SBI brand delivers innovative and quality armor designs for the international market, featuring an array of purpose-built carriers to suit any on-duty needs. SBI first presented its initial series of armor solutions at the 2013 IWA Conference and now features the core product line on the new SBI website at www.Safariland.com/SBI.

“We are very excited to release our core family of armor solutions for the international customer,” said Tim O’Brien, Category Director for the SBI brand. “With an emphasis on technology, performance and style, we are proud to have achieved a quality line that will keep our customers comfortable during those long hours on duty, but more importantly, we take pride in having developed products that will bring them home safely at the end of the day.”

SBI products are built to deliver the ultimate in ballistic and multi-threat protection, while also offering the utmost in comfort and design. The line features eight unique carrier models categorized by three specific functional needs – Covert, Multi-Purpose and Overt – designated to accommodate ballistic packages precisely developed for the European VPAM and SK1 standards.

The Covert carrier models include the SUBZR0™ Ultra Concealable Carrier, featuring a clever design that allows armor panels to contour tightly to the body, and the MATRIX™ Standard Concealable Carrier, offering the perfect balance of functionality and style. Both carriers offer a low-profile design, a lining system with Luxilon Luxicool®advanced cooling system for heat and sweat control and anti-microbial/anti-static materials for odor management.

Adding to SBI’s line of armor solutions are the Multi-Purpose carriers, XVERSE™ Low Profile Multi-Use Carrierand XVERSE™ PRO Low Profile Multi-Use Carrier. Both carriers feature an advanced design and maximum adjustability for covert or overt situations. These Multi-Purpose carriers have an integrated suspension system, which secures its panels in place for reduced shifting and feature an advanced 3D inner lining system for improved air flow. Additionally, the XVERSE and XVERSE PRO are individually designed to accommodate 5″x8″, 7″x9″ or 10″x12″ PROTECH® IMPAC™ special threat and rifle plates. Specific to the XVERSE PRO, this multi-purpose carrier provides the ability to add collar, throat and groin protection attachments.

The most robust and mission-specific carriers of SBI’s new product line are the four Overt carriers. Intended for use over a shirt or under a jacket, the ADX™-DUTY Standard Overt Carrier, ADX™-HI-VIS Standard Overt Carrier, and ADX™-UTILITY Standard Overt Carrier feature adjustable shoulders and pockets accommodating special threat and rifle plates. Specifically intended for various working conditions, each of these carriers are designed with a 3D lining system for improved air flow for added comfort against an array of environmental conditions. For example, the ADX-HI-VIS utilizes Reflexite® prismatic tape which offers high visibility, while the ADX-UTILITY includes a modular webbing attachment system to allow for added customization for mission-specific requirements. The last product in the new line, the LNX™ Overt Response Carrier, provides additional pockets for plates and also accommodates collar, throat, bicep and groin protection attachments to accommodate a more tactical environment.

All eight carrier models premiered in this core family of armor solutions offer three levels of threat protection:SILVER (NIJ 2005 Interim Requirements – U.S. Standards), VS (VPAM Standards – VPAM Ballistic Level 2), andGX (SK1 Standards – Level 1 Ballistic Protection).

Gerber Releases Downrange Tomahawk


Portland, Oregon — Gerber, a leading global supplier of personal outdoor, tactical and industrial gear recently released the new Downrange Tomahawk. More than a traditional axe, the Downrange Tomahawk is a complete breaching tool featuring a triple-purpose axe head, pry bar, hammerhead and G-10 scales to keep the tool firmly at hand.

Proudly made in Portland, Oregon, the Downrange Tomahawk delivers a three-tiered approach to breaching. The axe head’s beveled edge is capable of chopping through drywall and turning walls and doors to splinters. The backside of the axe head functions as a hammer for getting through hinges, doorknobs and other obstacles. And the pry bar at the end of the handle, controlled by a cut away grip in the axe head, blends physics and force for incredible leverage.

“The Downrange Tomahawk is another product forged from Gerber’s close relationship with the United States Armed Forces,” said Andrew Gritzbaugh, Marketing Manager for Gerber. “By collaborating with a variety of experienced professionals we’ve developed a tool that accomplishes multiple forced entry tasks, reduces the number of tools carried and ultimately lightens the load. This product accomplishes our mission of providing the warfighter with better battlefield solutions.”

The Downrange Tomahawk includes a MOLLE-compatible sheath and Kydex blade cover for safe carry and fast, unrestrained deployment.

Viridian Releases World’s First Pocket Pistol Taclight


Minneapolis, MN-The country’s fastest-growing laser sight brand has launched the world’s first tactical light made for pocket pistols, giving popular weapons like the Ruger® LCP® vastly improved defensive power.

The new Viridian® Reactor™ TL tactical light packs world-class technology into the industry’s smallest frame: advanced Radiance™ illumination, powerful 140 lumen light, and a unique Enhanced Combat Readiness™ feature for instant, automatic activation.

In addition to its game-changing size and sleek design, the Reactor™ TL’s unique Radiance™ wide-beam technology illuminates over twice the horizontal area of standard taclights, for faster discovery and targeting. High-output constant and strobe functions have the power of far bigger lights — up to 140 lumens – to expose, blind and disorient without weight or bulk.
Exclusive Enhanced Combat Readiness™ (ECR™) ignites the light the moment you draw, for instant illumination without fumbling with buttons or changing your grip – split-second speed that could make a life-saving difference.

The advanced lithium-powered Reactor™ TL has extended-life power cells for constant readiness, up to 40 minutes of operating time (strobe function), and a 3-level state of charge display so you always know your power level. A Viridian® ECR™ equipped holster is included with every Reactor™ TL to arm the Enhanced Combat Readiness™ feature.

Reactor™ TL models for the Ruger® LCP® are shipping now, and are available at gun dealers and sporting goods shops across the country. Units for other pistols, such as the Ruger® LC9® and Smith & Wesson® M & P Shield™, will be shipping this summer.

Viridian® is the fastest growing laser sight manufacturer in the nation, responsible for a number of industry-leading product innovations in green and red laser sights, taclights, TacLoc™ ECR™ automatic laser-ignition holsters, and shooting accessories.

Sitka Gear’s top-quality products feature the most scientifically advanced visual concealment pattern ever to hit the market – GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment, the first-ever concealment based on the science of animal vision. The unique micro-pattern considers the way a deer or other ungulate perceives color, the ratio of positive to negative space and other visual elements to create an effect that allows the hunter to blend with the animal’s perception of the environment. The macro-pattern breaks up the symmetry of the human body so that if a hunter is detected, the animal will not be able to identify the hunter as a predator.
