The BEARCAT® Ultralight Plate Carrier, a new, well-fitting, ultra-lightweight, and mission-tailorable Plate Carrier from Direct Action. The Bearcat is designed to be fully tailorable and versatile, but with a main platform that weighs only 290 grams.

Bearcat WildWood

Although the Bearcat is designed mainly with Swimmer Cut plates in mind, it will also fit SAPI or Shooter plates. Due to the use of highly stretchable softshell fabric, the plate carrier offers great fitting, no matter what kind of plate cut you choose. The inner velour Velcro® panels are also specifically designed to work well with the COMFORT PAD system of the Spitfire® Plate Carrier.


Other Spitfire accessories, like the CUTAWAY set, flaps and back panels also work well with the Bearcat. That makes this carrier a great choice for those who already have the elements of Spitfire® System, but seek for a lighter platform. For extra versatility, the Bearcat is being launched with a set of its own specifically designed accessories – all designed to compliment the ultra-lightweight of the Bearcat platform. The Bearcat accessory set includes; SKELETONIZED BACK PANEL® and SKELETONIZED PLATE CARRIER FLAP®, as well as the minimalist SKELETONIZED CUMMERBUND SLIM®, and the SKELETONIZED COMMS WINGS SET®.


The BEARCAT Ultralight Plate Carrier and all accessories are available now in PenCott-WildWood camouflage. For full details, visit

We caught up with our friends from SixKa at the SHOT Show and got an update on the great new products they’re bringing out in GreenZone® and BadLands®.

The main news is that they are adding a selection of backpacks, gun bags and chest rigs to compliment their boots, BDUs and Combat Shirts.

Check out the photos below for a sneak-peak – we’ll let you know when these are in stock and available through SixKa’s website.

Helikon-Tex: Pouches and More

IWA is only a few weeks away, and there will most likely be some exciting new product releases from Helikon-Tex revealed at the show.

In the meantime, they’ve also been releasing some new additions to their PenCott line-up that should also be quite exciting for our fans.


That’s right, Helikon is finally adding GreenZone® and BadLands® as camo options for their popular range of pouches and waistbags – just a few examples shown below.

Making its first appearance in the Helikon-Tex line-up, SandStorm® is now a camo option with Helikon’s highly regarded Combat Patrol Uniform (CPU).


Keep an eye out for all of these products to be in stock with your favorite Helikon-Tex dealer very soon – if they aren’t already there!


Helikon-Tex announced a few days ago that all of their current nylon gear (as shown in the 2016 catalogue) will also be available this autumn in PenCott® camouflage patterns!


Also revealed at the MSPO Trade Show this week in Kielce, Poland was the final prototype of their new ‘GUARDIAN’ Chest Rig.


The GUARDIAN appears to follow a fairly classic layout and is designed to be as lightweight as possible, so all pouches are sewn directly onto the rig’s chassis.  The magazine pouches will accept AR, SR and AK magazines and are constructed with built-in ‘lifters’ for use with shorter magazines (such as 10- or 20-rounders).  More details will be released soon, and the final confirmation of colors, camos, price and availability will be announced at IWA in March 2017.

The first prototype of the (then unnamed) chest rig was in fact seen at this year’s IWA in Nuremburg.




Designed as a light weight, flexible boot for tactical and training use, the Speed-Tac 9™ is now available in PenCott® camouflage patterns!

Cold climate operations have become an essential tactical focus for militaries around the world, with many dedicating more resources to training in the Arctic and other cold weather regions. This shift has generated a growing demand for gear that can withstand harsh conditions and function in extreme environments.

To that end, Revision Military developed the SnowHawk™ Cold Weather Goggle System in collaboration with Anon Optics, a leader in goggle design for snow sports and a brand owned by Burton Snowboards, the world’s leading snowboard company. The SnowHawk™ is the first-ever fully integrated ballistic goggle and balaclava system offering complete face coverage, superior anti-fog performance, and ballistic protection.

Extensive time, attention, and resources were dedicated to ensure breathability as well as warmth and anti-fogging:

  • Mesh over the mouth and nose directs breath away from the goggle; the dual-pane thermal gasket lens creates an insulated barrier; built-in top and lateral forced-air vents provide constant airflow; and, Revision’s leading OcuMax© Plus coating is applied on the inside of the lens to prevent fogging, plus a hard-coat is on the outside of the lens to resist scratching.
  • The SnowHawk system’s balaclava design utilizes Anon’s Magnetic Facemask Integration (MFI®) technology to seamlessly integrate the goggle and balaclava, ensuring stabilization and seal, with no skin exposed. The system achieves total face and head coverage, but is also intuitively designed for ease of use and swift removal when necessary.

Revision unveiled the SnowHawk™ at SOFIC 2016 and will also be showing the system at the Defence Vehicle Dynamics (DVD) trade show in the UK in September and at AUSA in Washington, D.C. in October.  The demonstrator model is shown in our SnowDrift® camo pattern as market-tester and capability demonstration.

0241 Tactical introduces PenCott® camo garments – and more…

Founded in March 2012 by two military veterans, 0241Tactical produces no-nonsense, high quality and affordable products that offer protection from the elements and enhance individual camouflage and concealment.

0241Tactical has been mostly known for their range of goggle and rucksacks covers and other tactical accessory products, but as of this year they have also begun expanding their product range to include garments – and in particular, to address the demand in the US and North American market for more affordable PenCott® camouflage garments.

Recently the company introduced its “Tactical Operator’s Pullover” (TOP) jacket.  The TOP answered the market demand for a simple, baggy, hooded anorak style pull-over that provides an extremely effective and cost-effective camouflage solution without a load of unnecessary ‘tacticool’ bells-and-whistles.


Now 0241Tactical has also released their “Tactical Operator’s Pants” that follow the same design ethos of simplicity, practicality and cost-effectiveness.  The pants feature thigh-level cargo pocket, back pockets, reinforced knees and drawstring ankle closures.
