Blackhawk! New Tactical Nylon For a New Year — SHOT Show 2018

Blackhawk has been making tactical nylon for many years now, so you might think they have done it all. But this year, they still managed to squeak out some new designs, at a price that is right.

Slinging It

First up, a new multipoint sling, available in black or coyote tan. This sling features several mounting options, from QD to hooks. It is convertible from a single point to a two-point, so no matter your configuration, Blackhawk has you covered.

MSRP: $39-80

A Bag For Everyone

On the bag front, Blackhawk has several new options. First up is the new Foundation case line. This is a minimalist case line, designed to not cost a fortune. It has laser cut MOLLE attachment points for additions you might want but overall is a very slim and functional case. Available in 30, 36, and 45-inch lengths, there is a bag to fit your gun.

MSRP: $109-139

The Stingray

Stacks and Stingray are the new backpacks, and everyone loves backpacks. Stacks features an innovative compartmentalization structure, addressing the problems of finding the gear you need in your bag. Stingray is designed as an EDC pack, with structure in place to defeat printing. The inside of the bag is ready to receive hook side Velcro, perfect for holsters or other pouches. A full zipper track lets this bag open flat in seconds. Both are available now.
