Our friends at Blackhawk gave us the skinny on new products for 2013. Are you excited? You should be! While there are a ton of new items coming out, we found several of their bags oh-so-very drool worthy. Whether you’re a fan of discretion or the standard mission look, we bet you’ll want to snag one of these releases as soon as you can.
Taking concealed weapon transport to a whole new level, the Blackhawk Diversion Raquet Bag (starting at $49.99) discreetly stows your firearm. It may look like your average sports case, but it features an internal divider that accommodates up to two firearms. Or if you’re more of a rifleman, you can store separated upper/lower receivers (up to 29 inches long) in this bag.
The padded walls and inner shell hide the outline of firearms, so the only one who knows you’re packing is you! The deceptive sports bag is available in three colors schemes: gray/black, gray/red or gray/blue. It’s set to roll out early in the new year.
Looking to go the backpack route? Let us introduce you to the Cyane Dynamic Pack (starting at $123.99). The hardcore pack includes rows of webbing and storage compartments that will keep any tactically-minded person happy. Durable and lightweight, it features multiple slash pockets, rows of MOLLE-compatible webbing, and a main compartment with 650 cubic inches of space to stow your tactical goodies.
To create a more wearable pack, it’s outfitted with a removable 3D padded mess back panel, padded shoulder straps and six compression straps. There’s even a hydration pocket integrated into the pack.
You can choose from four colors: black, coyote tan, olive drab and the almighty MultiCam. Expected to be out early in 2013, we can definitely foresee many tactical adventures beginning with the Cyane.
Almost as fun to say as it is to wear, the Blackhawk Yomp Pack (starting at $153.99) has the Y-Zip hotness. A Y-Zip allows you the ability to access the main compartment through any of the three zippers. If you need in just one part of the pack, you only have to unzip one zipper.
The main compartment offers 1,512 cubic inches of storage. You can fit a lot of gear in there! The two side compartments provide 116 inches of usable area, while the top flap one adds 63 cubic inches of space. You could easily pack your essentials in the Yomp, and you might even have some room left over.
To help with those especially hefty loads, the pack includes a lightweight, flexible spring steel frame that provides structure and the air vent support panel creates load separation and prevents gear from shifting. Your load might get even heavier thanks to the MOLLE-compatible webbing and attachment ports… it may inspire you to carry more pouches and gear. Not a problem! Add ’em! Its adjustable sternum strap and three-point hip belt mitigate the additional weight, so you’ll be stepping comfortably.
The hardcore 500-denier nylon pack is slated to be out early in the new year, and it comes in black, coyote, Ranger green/coyote tan, and MultiCam.
Which of the new packs are more your style? Discreet or heavy duty?
