SHOT Show 2015: Hazard4 Booth and New Products

P1370729

Hazard4 – one of my favorite gear makers (I use a Hazard4 “M.O.D.” briefcase for work every day) – had a fairly large display of their Cordura gear, accessories, bags, and packs.

Hazard4 did unveil three new products for SHOT.  So new, in fact, that they had not even seen two of them in finished form until they were delivered to SHOT: First, the Loadmaster; a massive rolling duffel with tie-downs.  Hazard4 said that they had a lot of customer feedback asking for a larger duffel like the Loadmaster, and Hazard4 delivered this at SHOT.  Second, Hazard4 brought their first dedicated double rifle bag, with two separate compartments on either side of the bag (i.e. a separate, zippered compartment for each rifle in the bag).  The bag contains complete mag pouches and internal MOLLE, and some utility pouches on the exterior.  One side of the bag has a tight-pile velcro-loop side on the interior for attaching velcro accessories.  The other side has a nylon slickside interior that is more durable than the velcro loop interior and might come in handy for storing a gun with sharp or abrasive components that might otherwise wear a velcro loop surface.  See photos below.

Finally, Hazard4 was displaying a tactical fanny pack of sorts, which will no doubt be welcomed by the tactical fanny pack enthusiasts out there (you know who you are).

    Okay, sorry if it’s a noobish question, but why all the hating on fanny packs?? I’ve heard some hate, but what is it about them that makes them so prone to hate?

      Hey, I love the tactical fanny pack, but the TacFanPack operator is definitely on the fringe. I think most people think of this when they hear “fanny pack”. It’s an image thing.

    • James R.

      yep

      Because people (even gun haters) tend to put their valuables on their fannypacks, such as wallet with some cash in it, etc so it becomes a goblin magent, talk about ‘Mug me pack’!

    There are a lot more fanny packs in service than most people realize. If you look closely, there are a lot of kitted up .mil and LE types who use them for oddments that don’t fit into chest rigs and such. usually they just aren’t that visible with all the armor, etc.

    I use a purpose built holster pack in aircraft and long road trips.
