HSGI and Comp-Tac receive 10 NTOA recommendations!

High Speed Gear® and Comp-Tac® recently received ten product recommendations in the National Tactical Officers Association’s “Member Tested and Recommended” program.

Select law enforcement officers thoroughly tested the Kydex® Tourniquet TACO® (4.74), Kydex Handcuff TACO (4.45), Operator Belt (4.55), Bleeder/Blowout Pouch (4.51), Double Decker® TACO – Covered (4.03), Mag-Net Dump Pouch V2 (4.46), Gas Mask Pouch V2 (4.41), Duty Flash Bang TACO (4.25), Ambidextrous Multipurpose Pouch (4.46), and the Warrior Holster (4.46) and rated them in the MTR’s two highest tiers. Each product was evaluated by four officers and graded on a variety of categories, including design, performance, quality, durability and versatility, with each group of officers’ scores averaged into the ratings listed above.

The MTR program ranks products as “standard” (rating from 3.00 to 3.99), “silver” (from 4.00 to 4.49) and “gold” (from 4.50 to 5.00). NTOA members can view the full reviews and scores in the Member Tested and Recommended database.

“I use this belt by running the Velcro® belt through my belt loops and then attaching the Operator Belt on top of it,” said an officer who rated the Operator Belt an overall 4.94. “It rides snugly and is very comfortable. The COBRA D-ring buckle is very sturdy and is overkill (in a good way). For those who like a low-profile belt, this is really good and is the best such belt I have tried. I intend to use it for general day-to-day investigative work and will keep my padded belt for tactical situations.”

“The Bleeder/Blowout Pouch is another item that I have added to my kit,” stated one officer, who gave the Bleeder a perfect 5.00 rating. “I use the blowout pouch in conjunction with an IFAK and the Kydex Tourniquet Pouch. I really like being able to have my shears secured and easily accessible and having a place designed to hold them. You can mount this on a belt system or on your MOLLE gear, making it a must have in my opinion for anyone needing to carry medical supplies. I can always find a use for this pouch no matter what the task is.”

Every HSGI® and Comp-Tac product submitted to the MTR for review not only passed for recommendation but also ranked highly.

“We are incredibly honored to have so many products rated so highly by our law enforcement officers,” said Allison Mitchum, HSGI director of sales and marketing. “We strive to create the best gear possible for our customers and are privileged to serve so many who serve.”

Stay ready with the new, robust ReFlex IFAK System!

The ReFlex IFAK was developed with direct input from active-duty medical personnel. The ReFlex is a two-piece system, med roll and carrier, that is designed to carry organized medical supplies with ambidextrous accessibility. The system, constructed primarily with heavy-duty nylon laminate, allows rapid deployment of medical supplies. This system was designed around the medical supplies included in the U.S. Army-issued IFAK. The ReFlex Carrier and ReFlex Med Roll can be purchased together or separately.

• Features HANK (High Abrasion-Resistant Neoprene Kevlar® composite) grab handles for long-term durability
• Can mount vertically or horizontally on belts 1.5 “-2.25”, and horizontally on MOLLE
• Intentional organization features put all supplies in easy reach
• Carry handle and shock cord loops allow the roll to be attached to a patient, or hung from an I.V. rack
• Gloves can be accessed via side slots with or without removing the roll from the carrier
• “Mini” MOLLE allows for precise fit on belts as narrow as 1.5” or two-row MOLLE panels
• Features loop panels on med roll and carrier for label patches (Medical Cross Patch included)

The eV2 Max IWB Holster

Conceal in comfort with the new, slim eV2™ Max!

The eV2™ Max Holster is a hybrid, appendix inside-the-waistband
(AIWB) holster designed to be so comfortable you forget you are
wearing it. This hybrid holster is a combination of a leather backing
that sits against the skin, with a Kydex® shell that holds the gun in the
front. The Kydex® shell minimizes the collapse of the holster after
draw, improving the ease of reholster when compared to all leather
IWB holsters. The two-ply leather backing was specifically designed to
maximize the comfort of the holster by placing smooth leather against
your skin, rather than hard plastic or metal hardware. With many
features made for concealability and functionality, the eV2™ is a
comfortable, concealable, ready-to-use variation for those who love the
appendix carry position.

Marine Corps awards mag pouch contract to HSGI

We are so honored that the U.S. Marine Corps selected High Speed Gear® for their new magazine pouch. As such HSGI® will provide Infantry Combat Equipment (PM ICE), Marine Corps Systems Command (MARCORSYSCOM) with 150,000 double rifle magazine pouches. The X2RTM TACO® was chosen for its preferred functionality, versatility, weight and Marine preference.

Additionally, Heckler and Koch® also ordered more than 30,000 TACOs® to pair with its M-110A1 rifle for HK’s squad-designated marksman rifle contract for the U.S. Army.

We are in the process of ramping up to meet this all-important need, and rest assured we remain ready for your orders as well. We could not be more proud to support our military and of our amazing teams and the community that have brought us to this milestone. Thank you for supportin American business and quality.

Introducing the NEW Adaptable Belt Mount (ABM)

High Speed Gear’s® new Adaptable Belt Mount (ABM) attachment format offers a sturdy, belt-width adjustable, anti-slide application for mounting HSGI® products to a belt. This attachment method uses a strip of durable, vinyl-backed, heavy-duty nylon laminate and reliable snap closure to create a belt loop. Two laser-cut slits enable the user to thread the loop smaller or larger for 1.5”-1.75” belts or 1.75”-2” belts, respectively. The inside of this fashioned belt loop features a patch of hook fastener designed to match up with the interior loop fastener of our rigger belts to lock the pouch in the desired position on your belt.

Additionally, ABM pouches feature a vertical channel behind the mounting panel. On some larger pouches, such as the ABM TACO® or Stun Gun TACO®, this channel is large enough to pass a belt through to mount the pouch sideways, as pictured below.

Two new medical pouches from HSGI!

Tourniquet TACO®

The TQ TACO® answers the popular demand for a versatile tourniquet pouch. This pouch is built with durable heavy-duty nylon and features an adjustable, removable cover strap, which also serves to partially eject the tourniquet when pulled for easier tourniquet extraction. As with other TACOs®, the retention on this pouch can also be adjusted for a tighter or looser fit, depending on personal preference. Additionally, all TQ TACOs® include our new PVC TQ patch.


Ambidextrous Multi-Purpose Pouch

The AMP is built similarly to our popular Bleeder/Blowout Pouch, featuring the same approximate shape/size and the same quick-pull tongue for easy removal of contents. This pouch, however, is also double-ended for left- or right-handed use and can be compressed with the shock cord woven through the sides. Furthermore, the AMP can be mounted vertically on MOLLE, and either horizontally or vertically on belts via the dual pass-through channels for belts up to 2.25″ or 2″, respectively.


Last is the new PVC medical cross and TQ patches, measuring at 1.25″x1.25″. These patches are available in three colors.

The 247 Trauma Wrap

This padded medical ankle wrap is designed to carry essential supplies to stabilize a gunshot wound.
• Designed for one tourniquet, combat gauze, compact compression bandage and nitrile gloves
• Expandable storage will also fit chest seals, gauze and a clothing cutter, if desired
• Glove pocket on elastic strap folds flat when not used
• Neoprene padding behind tourniquet pocket protects ankle from hard contact with tourniquet and adds grip to prevent shifting, keeping gear in desired position
• Features breathable spacer mesh for comfort
• Elastic strap offers adaptable fit over the ankle or a boot
