SKD Tac's New PIG Hydration Carrier

Just saw this on Lightfighter and wanted to pass the word around.  It appears SKD Tactical has made a carrier that actually fits properly on the back of a plate carrier, namely their P.I.G.  Excerpt from their website:

"Designed for the Source WXP 2L Hydration Bladder, the PIG Hydration Carrier offers innovations that will increase performance while minimizing bulk and weight. The wide-profile mouth offers easy access to your hydration bladder for refilling and maintenance. A 4" elastic band adds compression to the bottom of the bladder which serves to counteract the "fat belly" effect as the bladder empties. The bottom of the back panel is made of mesh, to aid in drainage and evaporation of condensation. Hydration ports are in the top corners, allowing directional routing to either shoulder.

8.4 grams of sex-appeal have been added to each carrier, making this one of the best looking pieces of kit you will attach to your host molle platform. Attaches via 2 Long and 2 Short Malice Clips, which are included. Source bladder pictured is NOT included with this carrier and must be purchased separately. Made in the U-S of A, biyatch."
If that isn't good enough news for ya, they are offering it up at a discount as well.

Mike Griffin of Austere Provisions Company LLC and Clint Lynch of Sentinel Design LLC teamed up together on a new collaboration.  It is an aftermarket adapter for your Blue Force Gear Vicker's Combat Applications Sling.  It is a modified aluminum tri-glide buckle that turns your sling into a Two-to-One (Two Point to Single Point) sling.  It accepts QD sling swivels, HK hooks, and MASH hooks.  The QD swivels have the stops built in so your sling will not spin around its axis and get all twisted up.  Mike was running one during a LMS Defense class I attended up in Alliance, OH.  The one pictured is a prototype.  The production models will be coated and not bare metal, of  course.  Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
