Raven Concealment Systems is marketing what looks like a handy little piece of kit for concealing bulky EDC items in your front pants pocket.
The ModuLoader Pocket Shield is a flexible platform which allows an individual to securely and discreetly carry a small defensive implement -- such as a firearm, pistol magazine, fixed-blade or folding knife, flashlight, canister of pepper spray or an expandable baton -- inside the front pocket of jeans or dress pants without visible pocket clips or printing, Raven officials maintain.
"The Pocket Shield not only provides a stable platform – it masks the profile of whatever is attached to it. This is especially important for those who must wear dress pants or other garments made with thin, clingy material," according to Raven officials.
The Pocket Shield is shaped to ride comfortably in the front pocket of most pants, and provides consistent orientation within the pocket to facilitate quick-access and deployment of an individual’s light or weapon. The platform is made from flexible, high-strength polymer that conforms to the shape of the user’s body for all-day carry comfort; yet it is rigid enough to remain anchored securely inside the pocket during strenuous movement or weapon deployment.
The unique mounting slots on the Pocket Shield allow users to attach nearly any small knife sheath or pocket holster to the platform at a wide range of angles. It can even be trimmed by the user to facilitate achieving a full fighting grip on the weapon or to fit in smaller pockets.
Pocket Shield was conceived by Chris Fry, owner of MDTS Training, and was co-developed with, and manufactured by Raven Concealment Systems. Prototypes and pre-production units of the ModuLoader Pocket Shield have been tested and fielded both domestically and abroad in a variety of non-permissive environments, with excellent results, Raven officials say.
It comes in black or gray and retails for $25.
