Raven Concealment Systems has added some new gear to their “Quick Ship” lineup.
Many people know about Raven Concealment Systems from their proven line up of high quality, hand- made, hard use kydex holsters. Most of you are aware that over half our minions use one on a daily basis. RCS was of the first companies to offer custom kydex to the market and have not rested idly since then – they’ve continued to develop new products and accessories. This is due in no small part to their relationship with some of the most highly respected shooting instructors out there. It might just as much be their willingness to partner up with customers and designers who bring them good ideas. Three examples of such designs are the CLEER MBOK and the “Sonny Rig” magazine carriage system (both of which we’ll cover soon), as well as the new ModuLoader Pocket Shield, seen below.
The ModuLoader Pocket Shield was conceived by Chris Fry, owner of MDTS Training. It was co-developed with and manufactured by Raven Concealment Systems.
The Pocket Shield is a flexible, modular platform which allows an individual to securely and discreetly carry a small defensive implement (think firearm, pistol magazine, fixed- or folding-blade knife, flashlight, pepper spray, expandable baton, multi-tool, fleshlight, etc.) inside the front pocket of jeans or dress pants without visible pocket clips or printing.
The Pocket Shield is shaped to ride comfortably in the front pocket of most pants and provides consistent orientation within the pocket. This is to facilitate quick access and presentation of an individual’s light or weapon. The platform is made from flexible, high-strength polymer that conforms to the shape of the user’s body for all-day carry comfort but it is rigid enough to remain anchored securely inside the pocket during strenuous movement or weapon deployment.
The unique mounting slots on the Pocket Shield allow users to attach nearly any small knife sheath or pocket holster to the platform at a wide range of angles. It can even be trimmed by the user to facilitate achieving a preferred fighting grip on the weapon or to fit in smaller pockets. This is easy to do with household scissors or EMT shears, but a sharp knife will do in a pinch. The Pocket Shield not only provides a stable platform – it masks the profile of whatever is attached to it. This is especially important for those who must wear dress pants or other garments made with thin, clingy material.
Prototypes and pre-production units of the ModuLoader Pocket Shield have been tested and fielded both domestically and abroad in a variety of non-permissive environments, with excellent results. This simple tool is definitely something that should be considered by anyone conducting low-profile/no-profile missions. Pleased with the field testing and positive user feedback in such a short period of time, RCS has added the product to the quick ship department of their webstore, ready for immediate order.
Like all RCS products, the ModuLoader Pocket Shield is 100% U.S.-made, and is covered by their exceptional, unconditional lifetime guarantee. Check it out here; you’ll find it and other quick-ship products on their website.
