Day two is in the can and it was as crazy as Day 1!
On Day 2, The Gear Locker got to spend time with the Team at Blue Force Gear and we got see more of their Helium Whisper pouches and the Medium and Large version of their NOW! Trauma pouches. These things are designed to be operated one handed and fit everything someone needs to administer first aid to themselves or a buddy.
Then we strolled over to the OTTE booth and they have come up with the Helio Jacket. It was designed to be worn over your kit during flight in a helicopter and then stuffed into the cargo pouch of your combat/BDU pants. A pretty cool design and very light weight. They also had some nice 1/4 shells that are worn over your KIT, and one was designed for the sniper with elastic straps for foliage.
We then made our way to the VooDoo tactical booth and it was slammed! They have some new interesting chest rigs with GP pouches on them. Stay tuned for pictures of those.
Oakley has a few new colors of their Tactical Gloves and have their combat boots in multicam now.
Revision had some new phototropic shooting glasses that change the tint as you enter/exit bright areas of day light.
Stay tuned for a Day 3 rap up.
