Gear REVISITED – Incoming Issue 12 Recoil Staff December 10, 2016 REVISITED – Incoming Issue 12 1 Do you fancy yourself a modern-day samurai? Then the Obake, designed by Lucas Burnley, might be your go-to fixed blade. The 3.64-inch blade is made of 8Cr14MoV stainless steel with a titanium-nitride finish that’s acid-etched, giving each knife a unique pattern. Overall, the Obake is 7.63 inches long and just 2.4 ounces. Comes with a glass-filled nylon sheath. Brand: Columbia River Knife & Tool Model: Obake MSRP: $60 URL: www.crkt.com 2 Though spring is technically upon us, the nights can still be chilly — and there might even be some stubborn snow on the ground in your region. So, the Icon Softshell Vest is a good fit for this season. It keeps your core protected from wind and rain without suffocating you when the sun’s out. Available in black, khaki, LAPD navy, and olive. Brand: Propper International Model: Icon Softshell Vest MSRP: $60 URL: www.epropper.com 3 Short for “Under Cover,” the U.C. Stealth is the latest holster from zZz Custom Works. This U.S.-made, inside-the-waistband holster is made of 0.080-inch Kydex and compatible with most popular handguns from numerous companies, including Glock, SIG SAUER, and Springfield. Its single fixed belt loop fits up to 1.5-inch belts (plans for a 1.75-inch loop is in the works). It comes in black, but more than a dozen other colors are available at additional costs. Plans include making it available with a magazine pouch for $85. Brand: zZz Custom Works Model: U.C. Stealth MSRP: $50 URL: www.zzzcustomholsters.com 4 In this age of high-tech crime, protecting your personal info is just as vital as locking your doors. The Under the Radar Laptop Security Pouch blocks incoming and outgoing signals and shields from unwanted reading of RFID data found in passports, credit cards, and driver’s licenses.

The 7-inch sleeve is designed to cover 1.5-inch-diameter cans, covering most .223, .300, 5.56mm, and 7.62mm suppressors. This badass sleeve is made in the United States and available in black, camo, flat dark earth, and olive drab.

Magpul’s Field Case is made of durable, semi-rigid thermoplastic that provides protection without being too bulky.

It’s designed for unrestricted movement, treated with durable water repellent, and made of a ripstop blend of nylon and cotton (balancing breathability, comfort, and durability). There are also plenty of pockets for flashlights, magazines, and EDC gear, and it can accommodate kneepads. Available in brown, gray, and green. Brand: Triple Aught Design Model: Force 10 RS Cargo Pant MSRP: $119 URL: www.store.tripleaughtdesign.com 8 More ammo is a good thing, right? The new PMAG basepads from Taran Tactical Innovations allow you to add capacity in exchange for a teensy increase in overall length. Slap one on a 40-rounder and you’ll fit 46 rounds into the mag using the standard spring and follower. And we like that.

Machined from nitrided stainless steel, it offers effective recoil control and a long service life.
