Tubes® Rapid-Release Technology
FirstSpear® is in the business of providing innovative solutions to long unanswered challenges. Our Tubes technology reaffirms that position. Quick to close and even quicker to doff, Tubes fasteners are manufactured from lightweight high-performance polymers that exceed the strength of other molded fasteners currently used on Operational equipment. Molded in signature suppressive colors and with a variety of choices for activation, this closure system can be rapidly deployed and completely reassembled in SECONDS. Tubes technology will improve performance, enhance mission functionality, and reduce weight.
6/9™ Modular Pocket Technology
Developed specifically for those Users who have not yet adopted FirstSpear 6/12™ platforms, the 6/9™ Modular Pocket Technology is not only completely backward compatible with legacy MOLLE/PALS style load carriage or armor carrier platforms but also offers significant weight reduction over traditional MOLLE/PALS pockets. Due to the flexible nature of the attachment straps and tighter tolerances when compared to traditional MOLLE/PALS, 6/9™ pockets actually mount closer to the body and conform tighter to the platform.
Already adopted by Professional Users within the joint US Special Operations Forces community, this system provides many advantages over the traditional MOLLE/PALS system and can further help facilitate transition into the 6/12™ Modular Pocket Technology where the ultimate in weight savings, signature management, and tight fit can be achieved.

6/12™ Modular Platform Technology
• Up to 50% reduction in weight & significantly less bulk
• Backward compatible with standard MOLLE/PALS
• Forward compatible with FirstSpear’s ultra-lightweight 6/12™ pockets
• Enhanced cable management
There are several philosophies on dealing with weight as it applies to load carriage. Some development has occurred in lightweight materials, but these tend to sacrifice performance. Other developments have taken place in “load transfer” by shifting weight around, but they reduce flexibility while increasing heat retention, bulk and even overall load. FirstSpear has taken a different approach. We listened to the Users and decided to eliminate the weight and sacrifice nothing. In the design assessment of current pouch attachment systems, FirstSpear recognized that the major weight parasite on both the platforms and the attaching pockets is the yards of bulk nylon, snaps and polymer stiffener.
The FirstSpear 6/12™ technology eliminates these components and achieves a 20%-40% reduction in weight per standard Assaulter configuration when compared to current pocket attachment systems. The FirstSpear™ team invested more than a year developing and testing the FirstSpear 6/12™ Pocket Attachment System. It utilizes state of the art fabric technologies to deliver a completely modular system, compatible with standard MOLLE pockets.
From adhesive heat-set backing to laser fusion precision attachment points, the 6/12™ system is a completely new, design-engineered solution that meets the need for modular, lightweight load-carriage platforms and pockets. Additionally, 6/12™ provides greater fabric flexibility on unarmored platforms and tighter mounting of pockets to create a cleaner silhouette that aides in enhanced signature management and mobility. The 6/12™ platform face is completely slick when pockets are removed and allows for easy management of communications cables and wires.
Don’t transfer the weight, get rid of it.

Multimag Rapid-Adjust™ Technology
Introducing the MultiMag Rapid-Adjust Pocket. Featuring patented adjustment and retention hardware, the operator can quickly adjust their pocket to fit a wide range of firearm magazines and other similar sized items.
The MultiMag Rapid-Adjust Pocket is designed to run right out of the box with no inserts required. The Boa® Fit System allows for precise micro-adjustability of the pocket to fit any size magazine you may need. Removable pull tab and bungee kit is sold separately. Optional speed reload inserts to fit two pistol mags or a single M4 are also sold separately. Patent Pending
FirstSpear Integrated Maritime Technology
Hostile Environments involve more than just gunfire. Other factors will directly impact our User’s ability to survive and successfully complete their missions. Among one of the most demanding and challenging an Operator can face is the Maritime Environment. In addition to armed adversaries, drowning & hypothermia can be every bit as much of a threat to personal safety.
Fortunately, FirstSpear is all about a challenge!
Making use of several decades of acquired Operational experience in Maritime Operations, FirstSpear has looked at the needs and mission requirements from multiple angles to offer true Maritime integrated capabilities.
