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.”

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.

In addition to the full line of holsters, Comp-Tac® provides great Kydex® solutions for magazine pouches. 

The Comp-Tac® product lines truly are a perfect addition to the gear we at High Speed Gear® have provided for years. These holsters add a complete depth to the line and work seamlessly with High Speed Gear® and mirror the quality and innovation that you have come to expect from us.
