EGL's Darrin Talbott on the range.

…is made in Kryptek Mandrake pattern camouflage by Extreme Gear Labs (EGL). EGL’s ‘SkunkyWerks’ released a picture of this medium sized PC in Kryptek Mandrake 500d (and possibly Legendary Thread, see below), sized to fit Medium M80 SAPI plates. There is an admin pocket with a slotted chemlight pocket behind it. Optional soft armor cummerbund and plate backers are available with case by case custom modifications.

Extreme Gear Labs is a small shop in Colorado run by Darrin Talbott. They’re known for their ability customize and innovate and have an excellent reputation within the circles that run their gear. EGL is definitely one to watch.

    Isn’t this an Ares Armor PC?

  • Bob

    No, it lacks the kangaroo mag pouch, and has a built in admin pouch rather than velcro at the top. He did seem to make some design nods towards the Aspis, but that could be because there are only so many ways to efficiently skin a cat.
