Micro Kit and Micro Medic

Building on the great success of the Mini Kit MK-7, 20DollarBandit has expanded further with a more minimalist approach bringing the Micro Medic and Micro Kit for Everyday Carry. The Micro Kit, a scale model of the Mini Kit MK-7 pouch, was created to carry the bare minimum EDC items when cargo or BDU pants are not an option. The Micro Kit is sized to fit a standard "Blue Jean" back pocket and has ample space for quite a bit of gear and kit. The Micro Kit is constructed of 1000D Balystic Nylon and has a 3" x 4" loop field panel to show off your favorite morale patch. The quick access clam shell opening Micro Kit pouch will fit either a Samsung Galaxy 5 or an iPhone 4, 5 or 6 in the clear pocket side and allows for manipulation of the phone while it is protected within the pouch. 


The modular concept of use applies here, keep one stocked for each POU e.g. wallet, micro SERE, EDC kit. The MICRO KIT will easily hold, micro multi-tools, knives, pens, phones, cash, credit cards, ID's, micro First Aid kits, the Tops Turley 23, chapstick, the Vigilant Gear Micro SERE kit, most of the Gear Ward kit and anything else that is small and easy to loose.

This kit was very proudly MADE IN THE USA by HONORPOINT USA a Service Disabled Veteran Owned business located in San Diego, CA. This "Early Bird" run will be less expensive and will deliver first so JUMP on it. All Micro Kits in this run will be BLACK 1000D Nylon, expected production time is 3-4 weeks.

Dimensions: 6" H x 4" W x .5" - 2" D (depending on load out)
Material: 1000 Denier Balistic Nylon

The Micro Medic, Inspired by Mors Kochanski, was created to carry the bare minimum First Aid supplies with you on an every day basis. The Kit is so small it will fit in any pocket, front, back, shirt and certainly cargo giving you absolutely no excuse not to have first aid capabilities on your person at all times. The Micro Medic also fits perfectly into the Micro Kit back pocket or clear "High Vis" pocket. The kit comes standard in the LOKSAK waterproof bag just like it's big Brother the Mini Medic.

New Aimpoint Combat Optic Coming Soon!

Aimpoint, the originator and worldwide leader in electronic red dot sighting technology, has announced the introduction of a new sight designed specifically for modern sporting rifles such as the AR-15. This new product, known as the Aimpoint Carbine Optic (ACO), expands upon the company's already proven designs and focuses these features into a high quality, entry priced optic. 




This new sight was developed with the modern sporting rifle owner in mind, and the ACO is ready to mount and shoot directly out of the box. A full suite of branded accessories, such as front and rear flip covers, an anti-reflection filter, and spare battery holders are available from dealers, and allow users to customize the sight to fit their specific requirements. The ACO pairs a 30mm aluminum alloy sight tube with an extremely rugged fixed height mount designed to provide absolute co-witness with AR-15 backup iron sights. A two minute of angle (2 MOA) red dot is utilized to allow maximum target acquisition speed and accuracy at all distances. The ACO is completely waterproof, and offers one year of constant-on use from a single 1/3N battery.

  "The Aimpoint Carbine Optic is the smart choice for today's modern sporting rifle owner," said Brian Lisankie, President of Aimpoint Inc. "By choosing this optic, shooters get a premium Aimpoint sight at an extremely friendly price point. If you own an AR-15 rifle, the ACO is exactly what you need to complete the package."

The Aimpoint Carbine Optic has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price of $393, and will be available from Aimpoint dealers in mid-to late October. For more information on Aimpoint and the new ACO, visit the company's website at:  Aimpoint.com

Polenar Tactical Grabs that Pistol Slide

In this video Polenar Tactical provides a full explanation to their exploration of what happens when you grab a pistol slide in a self defense situation. This is a follow up video in English, so they can provide a further demonstration with a clear discussion as clearly there are plenty of detractors any time you bring up a concept vaguely controversial if you want to take it that far. We had never ventured into such actions of daring do, so it is intriguing to see the end result. Plus the big hole that was left from the revolver is quite the sight.

Desert Tech Releases Full Auto MDR Prototype Footage

One of the more high profile releases for SHOT Show 2014 was the MDR Bullpup rifle from Desert Tech. It looks like they will be ramping up for further revelations to come at SHOT Show 2015. As we have seen with a new weapons platform, it can be a lot of wait and see till a production model is ready for release. In the meantime, you can catch some great full auto footage of the prototype MDR down on the range. 


Whisky Grade x Grifter Mercenary MultiCam Leather Gloves

We have seen the MultiCam Pattern integrated into many fashionable items from full suits to bath robes. Sure it looks cool and dissuade anyone from spending the cash for the popular pattern. In fact if the product has a great function and the camo just adds an extra aesthetic element, then why the hell not don the most prolific modern camouflage in the world. The motorcycle glove manufacturer Grifter USA teamed up with Whisky Grade Magazine to design a glove with a military aesthetic.

Whisky Grade x Grifter Mercenary Glove
Whisky Grade decided to utilize their favorite MultiCam pattern on a 1.9 ounce 70D Nylon Ripstop fabric and melded it with Grifert's Vintage'd Bison Leather. The inside of the glove is lined with soft suede. The riveting definitely adds a great Made in the USA touch to the glove. You can pick up a pair in multiple sizes at GrifterCompany.com
