Today we want to take a closer look at a small, rare and yet, very useful specialist pouch made by Mayflower RC. The Master Breacher Bag or MBB.

Mayflower Research and Consulting is part of Velocity Systems for a time now and serves as their specialist wing for developing and producing speciality nylon solutions for special forces worldwide. Mayflower RC is veteran owned and and is well known for finding simple, yet efficient solutions for unconventional problems that SF units are facing on a regular basis. None of their products has been developed for the pure sake of invention but instead to solve a very specific problem a certain unit faced somewhere on earth. This of course also is true for the Master Breacher Bag.

Leatherman WAVE

Back in the future, in 1996 Leatherman released the first generation of its meanwhile legendary Wave. I’ve gotten one of them as a gift and I still use it to these days. General design of all Leatherman multi tool reaches back to the year of 1983, that year the company was founded and started its indescribable triumphant advance in that branch.
Why should you buy a multi-tool, like the leatherman Wave?
Well, the answer depends on your purpose what you want to do with.
Its one of those tools that I would recommend to own, no matter if you are an outdoorsman, hunter, soldier or working in Law Enforcement, as it embodies the essence of all Multitools. Like I mentioned before, I own this particular leatherman Wave for way over 20 years now and it never left me alone in any situation where I needed it. From the cold and freezing Alps to the burning heat of the Sahara, its roughly 10cm closed length and 241g of 420HC stainless Steel did its job, no matter what.

In this review we will take a closer look at a really intresting piece of kit designed and manufactured by an US based company called THYRM. This particular piece of kit is called the Dark Vault and is basically a PALS compatible electronics case.

THYRM is well known for producing polymer based equipment solutions for a long time now, but they basically didnt offer anything that really caught my eye, until I discovered the Dark Vault. My interest in the Dark Vault started with an easy problem that may be familiar to you. Namely: „How do I protect my portable electronic devices in the field or on the range, while keeping them easily accessible?“ My first thought got out to the well known products from Juggernaut cases, but as a field electronic device I have to use the Samsung Xcover 4 smartphone which Juggernaut unfortunately doesnt support.

Talking about assaultpacks, you might think that the market is quite oversaturated. In fact there are plenty of twelve hourish assault packs out there. So we were pretty excited to see Crossfire Australias solution on this topic. Like all other products we review, we have tested the Crossfire DG1 for quiet a long time since its release.
For me it turned out that the DG1 is a pack that comes in handy in various ooccasions. I’ve used the DG1 for heli-borne operations as well as on vehicle borne training and as a 24h minimalist survival backpack.

In this review we gonna take a look at an adaptable waistpack, made by a polish manufacturer called HUSAR LTD. Before we start with the actual review, lets talk a little bit about HUSAR LTD and its history.
About 10 years ago the tactical industry in Europe experienced a significant growth of eastern europe based manufacturers, which appeared like out of nowhere. All of them had two things in common, one being that they offered a really wide and extensive range of products ranging from pouches, over backpacks to whole platecarrier systems. The other commom ground attribute was their really heavy reliance on lasercut manufacturing.
Some years later, many of them where lost to history, while others became a staple of the European tactical gear market. HUSAR LTD was one of those who survived, which may be owed to their product quality, or even more likely to the fact that they offer a really slick portfolio of items in their catalogue.

Today we are taking a closer look on a holster designed and manufactured by an Austrian company named „Black Trident“. This holster is what they call the „THOR“ holster and as you might be able to recognize by the very archaic name chosen for this model, it is Black Tridents first entry into a product category that I like to call „tactical passive retention based holsters“.

Before we start with the review by itself, I want to talk with you about the question of „what actually is a holster?“. Simple question you might think but asking this question is important.
