Hey guys!

Welcome back to the blog! You guys and girls will have seen my SHOT Show 2020 coverage on YouTube but for those of you who don't want to check out the new stuff from our favourite manufacturers on the 'Tube, we have a written report right here! In this write-up, we'll be looking at what's new from LBX!

As many of you know, for the last couple of years, I've been rocking the LBX Tactical 0300S and it has consistently been one of my favourites.  This system is based on the 6094 from LBT and was all MOLLE, LBX are now trying to move everything over to the MAP system and in turn, they will be offering the MAP system for the new 0300S. On the newest evolution of this plate carrier they've added a couple of extra loops to allow users to utilise some of the many panels available from LBX. We don't know whether these will come with the clips or if it'll be something you'll need to purchase separately. This new edition should be available by mid-2020 in all colours.  They also showed the 0300S in M81 Woodland for the first time, and all I can say is, I NEED IT!

Another product that caught my eye at SHOT Show 2020. The Armatus has been a staple for LBX for a couple of years, and at this years show there was an Armatus that had laser-cut MOLLE and more solutions for cable management and comms hooks. This Armatus also had a prototype panel attached that is exploring ways to carry more mags into the field. Most of the LBX panels have the capability of carrying just 3 mags so LBX went back to the drawing board to start designing the heavy. This panel is going to clip in at the front and velcro on the side and it gives users the ability to carry 8 mags between the sides and the top and the front pouch for pistol mags, phones, trauma kits etc. There's no solid date for this yet, but it's looking like it'll be available end of the year.

The MGP - Minimalist Gear Pack is getting a makeover! They're adding loops and clips so users can expand the carry capacity of this bag by adding the panels. It is also getting a velcro flap so the GRP panel can be used with the MGP too!
