HEXMAG Introduces New Magazines for AR Platform

The most instantly recognizable feature of Hexmag’s magazines is their unique exterior features which provide exceptional grip in any conditions or environment, with or without gloves.  Internally, they come with the firm seating, dual-leg, tilt-proof, multi-color coded HexID magazine followers and latch plate/identifiers.  Wrapping it all together is Hexmag’s exclusive PolyHex2   Advanced Composite construction. Hexmag magazines and accessories are also made in the USA and come with a Lifetime Warranty.  The company has now introduced two new magazine types for both .223 and .308 calibre AR-style rifles.


Unfortunately some folks live in areas where the magazine capacity of semi-auto sporter rifles is restricted.  While other companies have produced magazines sized specifically to these limited capacities, Hexmag took a different approach.  Their magazines limit the number of rounds for reduced capacity state laws to 10- and 15-rounds. However, they come in a FULL SIZE configuration so the user can practice as if it were a 30-round magazine.

Not only can an AR owner in a reduced capacity state or area legally train and practice with a full-sized magazine, keeping the full-sized form factor also means that there’s no need to try and find special-sized or custom-made magazine pouches or rigs.  You could say these are like the light beer of AR mags – tastes great, less filling!

Prometheus Design Werx – Wilderness Utility Top

While not exactly ‘tactical’, this product definitely has cross-over appeal…  The new ‘Wilderness Utility Top’ from Prometheus Design Werx features high-quality heritage materials, proven modern performance design, and Made-in-USA quality workmanship.

Cut in a style reminiscent of traditional rugged outdoors ‘jac-shirts’, the PDW Wilderness Utility Top puts a thoroughly modern and updated twist on this garment category, and creates a whole new class for itself.  Channeling the spirits of Jeremiah Johnson, John Muir, and Hugh Glass, the PDW ‘WUT’ is crafted for those who feel truly at home in the forests, mountains, and wilderness.  The WUT uses a fine blend tried and tested heritage wool Melton and a modern, function-first utilitarian design to create a style that will be lived in and relied on year after year.

Cut in an updated jac-shirt / shirt-jac silhouette, the WUT features a relaxed fit that’s designed to be worn like a jacket over a light mid-layer.  Alternatively, buy a size smaller and wear it with just a base-layer as a stand-alone outer garment or ‘mountain man shirt’.  The cut also allows a great range and freedom of movement uncommon in heavy-weight outdoor shirts.
