Gear Dynamics introduces the Covert Belt

Canadian gear manufacturer Gear Dynamics has introduced the latest version of their Covert Belt.

The Covert Belt is intended to primarily be a simple “hold up your pants” belt, but thanks to its integral padding and the removal HDPFE stiffener insert, it can also be used as a holster belt.  The belt is designed with a slim profile that won’t dig into your body when seated or crouching, and the padding also makes it comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.

Here’s a look at another innovative gear solution – this time courtesy of our friends at Predator Armament.

We first had Ares Armor develop the Combat XII-MEC Pack with Hyde Definition’s PenCott Multi-environment Camouflage Patterns and have now carried this over to more of their products including the Atalanta Modular Armor Carrier seen here in the BadLands transitional variant.

This version of the Atalanta Modular Armor Carrier includes all of the same features as the original including 1000 Denier Cordura Nylon with the PenCott BadLands Pattern and matching Quiet Loop at the front and rear for identification and to secure waistband.

The Atalanta Armor Carrier is designed as a concealed armor carrier and can take on full combat loads in addition to Soft Armor or SAPI Plates. Spacer mesh is integrated for a comfortable wear and easily takes on the Combat XII Pack for a lightweight load carry.


UW Gear Minuteman chest-rig in PenCott-GreenZone™ – with matching webbing

The picture tells the story…

UW Gear AR Minuteman Chest Rig

According to John Ammons of UW Gear, the pull tabs on the mag pouch flaps were deliberately made from solid color Coyote Brown webbing.  The reason for that was because, “The printed webbing matches the material and blends with it so well, it really makes the tabs hard to see if you had to look down for them in a hurry.”

PenCott on sale – “H.45″ retail store opens in Jakarta

Indonesian entrepreneur, military uniform collector, and self-confessed camouflage addict, Arie Setya Yudha, passed a significant milestone last week when the “H.45″ retail store opened as his agent in Jakarta.

Arie’s company Molay Military Uniform Division aims to provide comfortable, durable, efficient military-grade garments and gear for real-deal and mil-sim tactical use.  The company’s focus is 100% on function not fashion and every piece in their range is designed and crafted in Indonesia, using top quality materials sourced globally.

The H.45 store takes its name from the first letter of a well-known Indonesian war cry, and from 1945 – the year that Indonesia declared its independence from The Netherlands.  And .45 is of course also the calibre of a certain legendary pistol.  Arie and his business partners put all of these elements together, and created what is probably the coolest and most modern-looking store for tactical goods that we have ever seen.

Store details:

Jl Bulevard Artha Gading, Sentra Bisnis Artha Gading
Blok A 7D no 9
Kelapa Gading, Jakarta 14240

tel. 021 458 572 36


There are plans afoot for H.45 to also have an e-commerce enabled website in the not too distant future.

In the meantime, Molay Military Uniform Division has also had success in designing a new tactical uniform for the Indonesian National Police’s “Gegana” SWAT unit – known as the Peacekeeping Uniform (or PKU).


The PKU is also available commercially in PenCott camouflage patterns, and is already selling well in Indonesia and beyond.
