S&S Precision recently showed DefenseReview (DR) two of their latest products, the S&S Precision ELOS 5.56 (Elastic Load Out System 5.56mm) and NavBoard Rotary for smartphones, at SHOT Show 2016. S&S Precision has built quite the reputation for making innovative, utilitarian tactical gear for military Special Operations Forces (SOF) and other tactical operators, and the ELOS and Rotary certainly live up to it.
The S&S Precision ELOS 5.56 is a stackable polymer (injection molded elastomer) 5.56mm AR mag (magazine) carrier/pouch system that’s essentially a logical evolution of the S&S Precision SMR – Skeletonized Magazine Retention polymer mag carrier/pouch. The ELOS 5.56 ads an elastic retention cable/strap and stackablility, so that you run two rows of mag pouches on your S&S Precision Plate Frame lo-pro/lo-vis (low-profile/low-visibility), minimalist tactical armor plate carrier system, or on any other plate carrier system.
The ELOS 5.56 is well-designed and definitely worth taking a look at by anyone looking for lightweight minimalist, stackable mag pouches.
The S&S Precision NavBoard Rotary system is particularly interesting to us, since it essentially turns your smartphone into a wearable, rotatable (or should I say “rotating”?) combat computer system, and looks really simple and easy to use. The Rotary allows the operator to adjust the angle and orientation (vertical or horizontal) of the smartphone quickly and easily, one-handed. Like all of S&S Precision’s other products, it’s very well designed, being as lightweight and minimalist as possible, while still maximizing combat utility. DR was really impressed with it, as it would seem to make the military assaulter/operator’s life easier, especially under adverse combat conditions during high-speed, low-drag combat missions. Really nice piece of gear.
Defense Review would very much like to acquire some ELOS 5.56 product samples for some range testing with our 5.56mm mags at some point.
