Black Load Bearing Equipment/Kit: The operators in the 1995 incident did not have the best load carrying equipment for combat operations. In fact, their on screen kit appears to have little to no place for storing weapons or equipment. We recommend choosing your own interpretation of black load bearing equipment (LBE) kit for your STAAR Team attire. The website Cheaper Than Dirt has a lot of options ($15 off your order here) that include cost effective products and top of the line products. Here are a couple of recommendations for LBE/Kit that look great, are of good quality and won’t break the bank:
UTG Ultimate Tactical Assault Ten Piece Gear Set
STAAR patch: Purchasing an already made STAAR patch is not an option, however there is a company in California that will customize the patch with a quick turn-around that is high quality. The benefit of using them is they already have the style and size you need. Each order comes with a large patch that can be placed on the back of your kit and a smaller patch great for use on a sleeve or on the front of ball cap with Velcro attachments.
