SHOT Show 2020: Tasmanian Tiger Announces MIL Transporter, Three New Tactical Pouches

posted on January 24, 2020

Offering a line of tactical products designed for both civilian and military/law enforcement use and distributed exclusively for the American market by ProForce Equipment, Tasmanian Tiger has a number of fresh offerings for 2020, and the company displayed several of its newest bags and pouches at SHOT Show 2020 in Las Vegas. 

MIL Transporter

Tasmanian Tiger’s new MIL Transporter is a large-capacity, modular deployment bag constructed from 700 denier Cordura nylon. Built on an aluminum trolley frame with wheels for easy transport (removable for when not needed), the bag measures 36”x16”16” with a total volume of 190 liters and an empty weight of about 14 pounds. Perfect for storing clothes and other gear, internal fiberglass rods provide support for the bag and its multiple internal pockets.

Several repositionable dividers and removable zippered pockets allow the user to configure the interior of the bag to suit their particular needs, and strips of hook-and-loop fasteners on the exterior of the pack allow many of the company’s smaller pouches to be affixed to the MIL Transporter for additional capacity.

One side of the bag features a lockable compartment for stowage of a long gun, with interior straps that allow the firearm to be suspended and not drag along the ground. Offered in Black and Olive, the sizeable bag retails for $599.

TAC Pouch 11

As its name implies, the TAC Pouch 11 joins 10 other tactical pouches on Tasmanian Tiger’s product line. Designed to attach to vests, packs and chest rigs with at least four loops of MOLLE-compatible webbing, the newest pouch offers lightweight additional storage for sundry items such as medical supplies, electronic devices and other personal equipment.

The large main compartment offers a five-liter volume, and the pouch is compressible, so it doesn’t take up much extra space when empty. The TAC Pouch 11 will be available in Black, Olive, Coyote and MultiCam; prices for the three solid colors are set at $55, and the MultiCam pouch will be priced at $65. 

EDC Pouch

Adorned both inside and out with sections of MOLLE webbing and hook-and-loop fasteners, the EDC Pouch provides convenient storage for smaller gear and sensitive documents. The zippered main compartment features numerous pockets, loops and D-rings to help keep items organized, and a secret pocket—with a transparent slot for keeping identification—under the front flip is ideal for storing personal documents. In Black, Olive and Coyote, the EDC Pouch has an MSRP of $40, while the MultiCam and MultiCam Black versions will cost $45.

Digi Radio Pouch

Very specialized in its application, the Digi Radio Pouch (6”x3”) is sized specifically to accommodate a digital communication device. The small vinyl pouch features an adjustable front flap in order to secure the radio, and the unit can be affixed to any pack or vest with two open MOLLE loops. The Digi Radio Pouch comes in Black, Olive, Coyote and MultCam; the solid colors cost $25, the Multcam costs $28.
