BlackHawk Releases Initial Response Gear

The BlackHawk Products Group has unveiled the Initial Response packs, belts, harnesses and vests for first responders. These products are compatible with others in the line, allowing the responder to create a system specific to the situation or mission.

The Initial Response "H" harness can be paired with the Initial Response web belt. Both items can be supporting platforms for other modular items. The "H" harness, which is equipped with padded shoulder straps for greater comfort, helps to distribute the weight of the web belt. Both items feature reflective grey piping.

BlackHawk also offers an Initial Response fanny pack, vest, hydration pack and backpack. For first responders requiring more vest features, BlackHawk has a First Responder vest made with a heavy-duty nylon mesh. The vest is adjustable up to a six-inch length and additional 32-inch girth. The product is equipped with eight nylon utility pouches, two large internal zippered map pouches and an internal hydration reservoir pocket.

BlackHawk's Initial Response fanny pack is equipped with reflective cording and yellow interiors for easy access; the Initial Response vest provides a platform that is compatible with other Initial Response products.

The hydration pack can be paired with both the Initial Response and First Responder vests and is in a low-profile design to minimize bulk and allow for greater movement. The BlackHawk Initial Response backpack has a spacious main compartment, an adjustable helmet holder and detachable shoulder straps.
