P1G-TAC is an Ukraine based company and it is always great to see how other tactical communities do things. This particular Grab Bag has some interesting features not usually seen on this bag type, however the specifics may divide many on if they love it or could do without.
I was pretty excited when I got these pair of pants, as I really liked the Raven leggings. (Although they are a bitch to peel off.) Unlike Monkey I’m not really a tactical girl, but he wanted me to try some functional pants to see how they would work for me.
Fanny Packs seem to be making a come back despite getting a bad rep from the 90s and nice to see some CCW variants these days. Although easy to get arrogant on thinking the US is always making the best nylon kit, I find it good to keep an eye out for other countries making modern tactical gear.
I've always liked the idea of zipper tac-boots, but haven't had perfect luck with them in the past. Thus my excitement factor was a bit low to give another a try, however the First Tactical Men's 8inch Waterproof Side Zip Duty Boot has really grown on me finally meeting all my hopes in a side zip boot.
With First Tactical already offering several bag and pack options it is natural they also have some nice pouches to go with them and great to see they put as much thought into them as their other products. Since doing an article on each pouch perhaps would be overkill I thought best to give a good group presentation on ones I've been able to get my hands on so far.
I was certainly happy with my first experience of Blauer products with the Clash Boot, so quickly took them up on the offer to try more items like this Strike shoe. Keeping the awesome feature of using the BOA lacing system, there is no slacking on the rest of the shoe details to make a great 4" tall design.
With all the fancy belt options out there, sometimes you just need something to hold your pants up and the First Tactical BDU BELT is a great execution of this concept while offering attention to detail and being affordable.
As expected First Tactical is doing a good job filling out their tactical product line including some nice packs and bags. To get a starting taste of their design style I got a chance to try out the Tactix 1-day Plus Backpack and was certainly pleasantly surprised.
I had a chance to check out First Tactical's main Tactical pants, the Tactix series and hence the dirty presentation on the pics, I've been putting them to good use. The full name is a bit ridiculous being First Tactical Men's Tactix Tactical Pants, but I'll forgive them for being a solid product. After a little research it appears First Tactical is a new gear company comprised of some folks that used to be at 5.11 and some solid new personnel from tactical occupations. The first wave of items seem to be aimed at law enforcement, but one of the big changes is that First Tactical plans to emphasize direct sales to keep final retail prices low.
