some time I have been hearing the buzz about the Professional
While at the SHOT Show I had the privilege to meet my
long time internet buddy Sean Fetters and his business
partner Bruce the two masterminds behind this “why
didn't I think of that” piece of gear.
Essentially the Professional
Operators Kit is a chest rig covered with MOLLE
webbing and is work with an infinitely adjustable X
harness that distributes the weight of the rig and it's
contents across your shoulders without pulling down
causing you to go “ruck numb”.
Upon first look the POK
appeared to me to look like a large medical pouch but
then you open it up and the possibilities begin to run
through your head. Inside the POK
is a simple adjustable holster that will fit just about
I would like to note at this point that for adjusting
the Velcro I found it handy to shove a ruler in the
slots to the Velcro could move freely until it was where
I wanted it. The holster is on a Velcro disk that allows
for even more position options.
Also included is a double mag pouch that adjusts in
the same way. As you can see in the pictures this was
the obvious way for me to set the POK
The front flap can fold either all the way down giving
access to every thing in the kits many pockets and loops.
Or it can fold half way down exposing the heavy vinyl
ID window and the top of the gear in the loops. This
is accomplished by two stop tabs/buttons that are sewn
half way down. The front flap also has three flat pockets
including the ID window. These map/paperwork pockets
would come in real handy.
My first thought for using the POK
would be as my Active Shooter Kit. If I am in need responding
rapidly to a dynamic situation like that I can't
think of a faster way to grab my first line gear than
to throw the POK on over my body armor. There is even
a spot in the rear of the POK to insert a large shock
The nice thing is that if you have
a spare pistol, mine being the Glock 23 pictured you
could place it, two mags, a knife, Surefire, ID and
whatever else you desire to create a second set of 1
st line gear. As we know in this business one is none
and two is one. On those days when your EDC is a little
lighter than normal due to circumstances or dress you
don't have to be left vulnerable.
was made for convoy ops going on in the desert. Try
as I might I can not figure out a better way to carry
and access essential gear while in a seated position.
And at the same time having all your administrative
