The Cat Trap was designed to provide quick access to your C-A-T Tourniquet. It’s lightweight, has adjustable tension, and is secured to your PALS Webbing without the use of any of the traditional attachment methods. The shock cord used to adjust the tension weaves through the PALS Webbing and secures the holder to your equipment. This saves on weight and cost. The shock cord and ITW Cordloc can also be easily replaced in the field if needed. Something that can’t be done with holders using traditional elastic. The inside of the holder is lined with a non-slip material, which provides extra friction to help hold the tourniquet in place. Currently available in Multicam, Coyote 498, Ranger Green and Black. Price: $6.50 Order Here
An optional adapter (Sold Separately) is also available, allowing the user to mount the holder in a horizontal position. Made of Hypalon, the horizontal adapter weaves through the PALS Webbing and is secured with the shock cord from the Cat Trap holder. Once again eliminating the need for any of the traditional molle attachment methods. Horizontal adapters are available in Coyote, Foliage Green, and Black. Price: $4.50 Order Here

BMCS Terrell Horne III Memorial PatchOn Dec. 2, 2012, Senior Chief Horne, the Executive Petty Officer of the Coast Guard Cutter Halibut was killed while conducting maritime law enforcement operations off the coast of California. He sustained fatal injuries when the small boat he was on was rammed by a vessel being operated by smugglers. One of Horne’s final actions was to pull a fellow crew member out of the way before the smuggling vessel collided with the Coast Guard small boat. Senior Chief Horne is survived by his wife Rachel, and two sons, Kade and Miller.
All the profits from the sale of these patches will be donated to The Coast Guard Foundation. The Coast Guard Foundation supports the families of fallen Coast Guardsman in times of crisis.
OC Tactical is a small company and isn’t in a position to do much, but from time to time we can do something. With this run of 500 patches we should be able to generate about $2000 to donate to the Coast Guard Foundation. Special thanks to Marsec4 who provided the graphics and Combat-Swag who not only fast tracked these patches during the busiest time of the year, but also without being asked provided a substantial discount on the price. Without their help it would have never happened.http://stores.octactical.com/-strse-76/BMCS-Terrell-Horne-III/Detail.bok

I have to apologize, it looks like I haven’t been getting the email notification from WordPress when comments have been posted until today. I just logged on and can see there’s quite a few old ones I didn’t know about. Sorry for the delay, I’ll start getting them answered.
Neil over at Three Fathom Solutions is one of the best gear designers I know. This is one of his newest creations called, JustApack. It’s intended for use as a slim, light, short haul pack, or a small direct action pack you can pull out of your ruck, stuff and go. I wish I would have had one of these bad boys when I was on active duty. This pack would have been perfect for when you had to drop the ruck at the ORP, but still needed to hump all the 7.62 ammo to the objective. Plus a little extra room for the woobie just in case. Then when not in use you can stuff it in the internal cinch sack and put it in the bottom of the ruck or attach it to the outside with some repair buckles.
- Over 500 cubic inches of storage space.
- 1 main compartment, 1 outer pocket, 1 flat admin pocket, and 1 cinch pouch inside main compartment.
- Folds up into small cinch pouch inside main compartment for easy storage and packing.
- 1″ Repair buckles can be added to shoulder straps to allow attachment to vest or larger pack (Not Included).
- Weighs approximately 1 pound.
- 500D Cordura construction is standard, Multicam LiteLok also available.
- Contains no padding.
