RPN Ahegao /K/arrier

If you are in the market looking for some gear with unusual patterns to make yourself standout from all the usual tactical colors and camouflage patterns, you might want to check the Etsy storefront of Red Path Notions. The seller has shoulder pads and plate carriers that you can have made to order and shipped to you since that’s how Etsy works.

But before opening that page with the browser at your office computer, take note that some may just be considered NSFW as they use pattern called “Ahegao”. For those who are into Japanese culture, “Ahegao” is the Japanese pornography term for the facial expression of fictional characters during sex often used in pornographic manga, anime and  videogames.

There are three products that you can order right now with the Ahegao pattern:

Ahegao /K/arrier - Baseline (No placard) (Made to order)

Red Path Notions explains how these two products came about:

Born from a /k/ thread, this /k/arrier implements the use of a hybrid 500D Cordura/ahegao pattern fabric mix for a more wear resistant construction. Foam padding is used on the user-facing side of the platebags for increased user comfort. Shoulder strap placement has been changed to be even wider for decreased neck discomfort along with ITW G-hooks being used in place of the conventional sewn in shoulder straps, allowing for servicing and customization of the straps.

Also included with the carrier is an elastic cummerbund with magazine carrying capacity (3 magazines per side). The magazine slots on the cummerbund are sized to accept both 7.62 and 5.56 magazines.

But if that’s not to your taste, then why not go for a Hawaiian pattern in the form of the Aloha Carrier Ver2 Rev.1 (Made to Order)?

Aloha Carrier Ver2 Rev.1

Built with several major improvements over the original Aloha Carrier, this carrier implements the use of a hybrid 500D Cordura/Hawaiian fabric mix for a much more wear resistant construction over the original Aloha carrier. 3D foam padding is used on the user-facing side of the platebags for increased user comfort.

The new Ver2 Rev.1 design forgoes the use of conventional sewn in front platebag shoulder straps through the use of 2 ITW Waveloc G-hooks. The shoulder strap assemblies can now be removed to allow for servicing and customization.

The front platebag includes a removable kangaroo placard attached by two QASM buckles. The kangaroo placard is lined with hook and loop to allow the insertion of magazine retention inserts. Also included with the carrier is a elastic cummerbund with magazine carrying capacity (3 magazines per side). The magazine slots on the cummerbund are sized to accept both 7.62 and 5.56 magazines.

If you want to go extremes, why not request Red Path Notions if they can come up with a BDU set (blouse and pants) with the Ahegao pattern? That will complete your full Ahegao loadout from there, you’ll find out if your airsoft team mates will find it kawaii.
