OUR MISSION To be the first choice for Australians seeking a mature and professional company to provide high quality, innovative, fit-for-purpose equipment and associated services in the Military, Law Enforcement, Security and Outdoor Enthusiast space.
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT We have the in-house capability to take a concept and rapidly turn it into a reality. With our progressive and innovative approach to continually improving our product with direct user feedback our customer centricity is the cornerstone of our success. Our design team is highly trained and possesses industrial design capability allowing us to animate, pattern, sample and trial-manage an extremely broad bandwidth of product. Every product we design is driven by a specific customer need and with a “solution based” approach; we challenge our customers on every detail they are able to share. Such details include application, area of operations and equipment’s with which our product needs to work with. We know from years of experience that the more we understand, the more we can assist. Although our design team is geared to develop new concepts inhouse, they are also skilled in conducting test and evaluation of leading technologies that are commercially available. Rather than utilised resources to “reinvent the wheel” we prefer to partner with other leaders in the pursuit for delivering on requirements specified by our customers. We have a specific sub-contractor assessment process which is used to aid us in the decision to partner with an organisation and this process assesses many aspects of the prospective partner including product integrity, company track record, and their approach to quality and backup support. On average, we complete two to five new designs (specific to a customer need), each week on top of developing new product for our retail range under the name of Platatac™.
Platypus Design Hub is a company dedicated to the design and creation of custom merchandise. We have the capability to produce everything from apparel and webbing through to PVC patches and plaques. We can embroider, screen print, mould, carve, sandâ€Śyou name it and we can probably do it. Yearly we complete over 5000 design jobs for a range of customers worldwide including civilian, Military, Police and other special agencies. We can provide a never-ending array of custom merchandise. Be that for official use or morale boosting. Contact us with any merchandise requests and we will get back to you with a quote and an estimated time of production.

SMAC 2 ARMOUR CARRIER One of the best known PLATATAC plate carriers is the SMAC, designed and manufactured in response to a SOCOMD requirement. With adaptability being key and without sacrificing comfort for durability, the SMAC 2 features the same simple and well thought out design as its predecessor, with some added benefits. Itâ€™s a lightweight, low profile and versatile platform and with molle attachment points on entire vest profile and the addition of the rifle mag insert and integrated hydration/ MOE tool carrier, this allows the user to significantly increases load carriage options. The SMAC 2 shares commonality with the ASAD PDS armour carrier ballistic -
- protection accessories, giving the user the ability to up armour and rapidly change out the suite of velcro in/out cummerbunds to suit mission requirements. The SMAC 2 has integral padding against the body which provides added comfort if stand-alone hard armour plates are being worn. Internal plate holders allow for various sizes of hard armour inserts to be used. The SMAC 2 comes standard with a MOLLE mesh cummerbund, padded shoulder pads and rifle mag insert, which can be used in the integrated kangaroo pouch or clipped to the front of the SMAC 2 as a low-profile chest rig.

With a wide range of accessories and up armour potential, the carrier can be utilised from discreet level operations through to deliberate action in a Law Enforcement or CT setting. Through the design phase of the ASAD, emphasis was placed on reducing the load burden as well as overall bulk to increase wearer mobility. The flipside of the -

The use of weight reducing materials, coupled with the cut of the carrier, ensure that it is as light and comfortable as possible, without compromising durability. On top of this we have incorporated Phase Change Material to aid with the thermal regulation of the user. The ASAD, provides you with the options you need.

BLUEGUNS® Ring’s Manufacturing originated from our parent company Ring’s Studio Gun Rental Inc., which was established in 1989. Providing weapon related props and accompaniments to the Motion Picture and Television Industries. In the mid-90’s Ring’s purchased a molding facility from the Los Angeles area and moved it to the East Coast. Refining the craft, Ring’s has provided urethane foam stunt props to those same industries. In the late 90’s Ring’s began receiving inquiries from the Law Enforcement communities to manufacture a quality training aid. After considerable research Ring’s has crafted the most detailed and durable training weapon available in today’s market. Ring’s training weapons, known as “Firearm Simulators” or an adopted name of “BLUEGUNS “, are so exact in size and dimension that many holster, grip & laser manufacturers use them to display their own products. Ring’s believes that in order to get proper safe tactical training you need to use a training aid that has the look and feel of your personal weapon. Blueguns are not to be used for anything other than their intended use. Modifying or painting training aids in any colour other than Blue or Red may cause public alarm and is unlawful. Please ensure that you check your local legislation pertaining to the purchase and use of Blue Guns.

EBERLESTOCK J51 WARHAMMER PACK The J51 Warhammer is an offshoot of Eberlestocks popular J79 Skycrane II, but has more generous side/main butterfly compartments, so in effect the Warhammer has more standalone capacity. However, the products are very similar in function, and use many of the same components. Whereas the Skycrane II system includes the G1 and LP1 packs, these can be purchased separately when building a J51based pack. The Warhammer is built around the U.S. militaryâ€™s beloved ALICE, a tried and true pack frame. Using the frame as a core structure, Eberlestock has developed an entirely new style of pack that has amazing utility and versatility. It takes advantage of the ALICEâ€™s compact size, and take-anythingyou-can-throw-at-it toughness, and incorporates features and qualities that have made Eberlestock packs famous. Because the frame is fully wrapped in the structure of the pack, more along the lines of an internal frame than an external frame, Eberlestock has eliminated frame noise, and built an exceptionally comfortable and well ventilated pack.
EBERLESTOCKÂŽ Eberlestock are specialists in military and hunting packs with integrated weapon carriage solutions including long barrel rifles, shotguns and bow hunting equipment. Their build quality is exceptional and their designs are both comfortable and functional resulting in excellent all round tactical and hunting field packs.
