becauseguns.com recently commissioned photographer Benny Levin to lense a photo shoot for Agilite gear featuring IWI firearms and Israeli supermodel Michel Idan. (Click here for more revealing images.) Israeli Special Forces and US Army veterans created Agilite to supply tactical gear to Special Operations units, and law enforcement and search and rescue teams. It’s now available online to the general public. The company’s products are designed to be agile and light. (Hence Agilite.) Their unique selling point . . .
The gear’s made for what Agilite calls “non-permissive environments.” “Israel is a place that has never been able to take its guard down and that has had to innovate to survive,” the comnpany’s website asserts. “Agilite products get battle-tested long before they are released to the public, under conditions where there’s little margin of error.”
Agilite’s an up-and-comer in the tacticool market. In 2012, they kicked-up their commitment by acquiring Shiltex, Israel’s National mil-spec narrow textiles company. Shiltex supplied the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) with premium quality equipment and components since before the Six Day War (1967).
Agilite’s $329 K3 Plate Carrier [above] is their latest lightweight plate carrier. They designed it for the IDF to fit their “Hashmonai” standard-issue ballistic plates. Pouch set variants incude M203 and Negev machine gun set ups. By the way the Mepro Mor Meprolight is NOT on backwards.
Agilite’s $84.95 Mat-Evac litter [above] is a combination camping and shooting mat and rescue litter that rolls-up for easy transport. Made from military Nylon and high-density closed-cell foam, it can support up to 700 pounds of [hopefully not] dead weight. You can have any color you like as long as it’s OD green.
Agilite supplied Ms. Idan with $100 Numa ballistic eye protection. Battle tested? “I am a military contractor deployed in Iraq,” a testimonial on their website reads. “I was working at the Justice Ministry when it was struck by a car bomb. I am thankful that I was wearing my Point Ballistic Numas at the time. The debris came from all over the place, no matter where one was standing. It was horrible. My hearing is somewhat gone, my insides still hurt – but my eyes are intact, and that is a good day for me.”
Agilite is looking to expand into the U.S. market in a big way. We’ve asked them for some samples to test. If there’s any product on their website that you’d like us to put through its paces, please leave your suggestion in a comment below. We thank them and becauseguns.com for sharing these images with us. RF reports that he can now die a happy man.
Ooo boy. Doesn’t everything go better with a hottie? Kinda like Bacon. Just one of those rules of life.
Uh huh. Girl has gun. So does my wife. Next.
In several of the photos, the gun is cut off by the frame. What’s up with that?
Yes but is your wife an Israeli model 😉
All sarc aside I see your point.
Probably because she’s modeling the clothing rather than the weaponry? Just a guess is all. (Unless referencing the more revealing link)
I noticed the same thing I don’t think the photographer was concentrating on the guns.
In many of the pictures we wanted to give more attention to the model and to the atmosphere with just a “hint” to the weapon because we believe that not everything needs to be fed with a spoon…
Curious – where did the shoot take place?
Ok, I guess I am a troglodyte. I am a NAVY man, (I’m sure it’s a modesty thing but) can we get more navel? : ) I’m not sure what weapons/t-shirts/sunblock/cookies she is selling but I’ll take 5.
she has a unibrow like adam corolla
Maybe its a regional thing.
Heck, Maybe Adam corolla is even considered to be attractive in that region?
Prominent? Yes. Uni? Not so much.
It’s a uni for people who can’t count to two.
There are 10 kinds of people in the world, those who understand binary, and those who don’t.
That has been my email sig for at least 20 years now. 🙂
love the t-shirt “front toward enemy”
I had to have a “front toward enemy” shirt, so I just ordered one. 🙂
The back should say, “don’t make me turn around.”
Um,… Are those really suppressed Uzi’s in the pictures?
She had an Uzi in one of the other pictures from a link in the post, but those are Tavors with the 9mm kit by the look of it
Here’s what the photo shoot sounded like:
Take you finger off the trigger please.
Remember, finger off the trigger.
If your finger is on the trigger these guys will know you’re not a gun person.
How many times do I have to tell you!
Aww EXPLETIVE DELETED it, I’ll just focus on her ANATOMICAL REFERENCE REMOVED from now on.
The modded comment is funnier than my original.
That’s what Dan Z. is for…
Given the mandatory military training that everyone gets in Israel, including supermodels, I doubt anyone had to tell her how to hold, or not hold, the weapons. She probably qualified with that suppressed Uzi in ways that would not be legal in many states in this country.
Nice pics, but am I the only one who thinks that “mouth slightly open” look so popular with models just makes them look…stupid? Literally. Like, they’re just slack jawed and zoned out.
The term you’re looking for is “slack jawed.”
Can’t stand it either. She looks vacant between the ears.
Like we really need a picture of her reading a book on quantum physics.
I don’t know, Ralph. Smart chicks are kinda hot.
I agree. I think a woman looks most attractive when you can see the spark of intelligence in her eyes.
I know our TTAG writers have a thing for Israeli models but I personally think you can see better looking girls within a few minutes of walking in any mall.
There is one very striking and obvious narrative in these photos, ……. she wants me!
Notice DZ is giving Robert cover on this?
Clever, boys. Clever.
+1 well played Robert
I’d hit that!
And she’d probably Krav Maga you into next week!
I like the pic of her standing in sand and a Lockheed C-130 high overhead…
Was there a gun in the pic?
Not that I noticed…
(Terminal aviation geek…)
Haha – Plane? Was there a plane somewhere? Musta missed it 😉
Back to your lair with you…
Hey! Don’t mess with the Zohan. 😉 Hooyah.
She looks 13 and hairy.
C’mon guys. Ms. Idan can read. Also, she’s 21 and a military cop.
In that case….Ms. Idan, you look lovely… The church social starts at 8..
My 55year old wife is hotter-but she’s OK. Also not a fan of the brow…oh wait this is about guns and stuff. Nice guns…
I agree… My wife @ 51 looks better… and yeah.. she needs to stand a little closer to that waxing spatula…My wife thinks this is a site dedicated to guns, i just left out the occasional hot chick part…
Ha! My wife NEVER looks at TTAG…but yeah she thinks I spend too much time looking at gun stuff. I’m late to the party but trying to make up for lost time.LOL
Yur lucky…My wife is a gun crazed FREAK!! and hits this site all the time. more of a lurker than a poster..
Oh she likes guns a lot-she just doesn’t dwell on all the crap I do…
If this constitutes as a super model over there I’m staying home
“Supermodels. Heh! Nothing super about them… spoiled, stupid little stick figures with poofy lips who think only about themselves. Feh! I used to design for gods!”
– E. Mode
This is a supermodel? I am ashamed to be Israeli. The average girl on the street in Israel is hotter.
I am from israel and you are talking nonsense
If the average girl on the street in Israel is hotter, I’m moving to Haifa. Now.
Pack your bags….he’s right
Not a fan of the aloof pouty look. A pretty smile and a spark in the eye would do wonders. Can I get the claymore shirt in mallninjapat in XXL?
Professional models are trained to look like they’re stoned. That is the runway look.
I think Michal is cute. I wouldn’t kick her out of bed for eating crackers. Or matzos.
I’ve seen eyebrows like hers before, on the lovely Jennifer Connelly.
You kick chicks out of bed for eating crackers? Have you no heart??
She looks bored, like guns are boring.
Noticed her knees look a little red and scuffed up.
Maybe that’s just how she normally operates.
Skinny girls with guns are not exciting. Big women with guns are.
