GSARGear Review: Modular Shear Sheath

Ground Search and Rescue Gear Review:

Jones Tactical Modular Shear Sheath.

Scissors/Medical Shears are really useful on GSAR missions, but most medical pouches have the shears holder inside the pockets, and getting them out in a hurry is always difficult, and a lot of times you end up spilling the contents all over the place. This sheath is specially designed to mount on PALS webbing or a belt, which means you can mount it on the outside of your gear, which in turn makes it easier to get to than digging through the rest of your equipment. The sheath has a simple hook-and-loop flap which runs through the shears handle, so the shears stay locked in and don’t slide out, but you can draw the shears one-handed without any trouble. It performs really well, stays well out of the way until you need it, and just generally does what it was designed to do. It’s about 4.5″ long by 2″ wide, and it can hold smaller shears in place or bigger ones by attaching the flap higher up.
I highly recommend this piece of gear to anyone, it’s really sturdy and just works.
