BMD SQUID TECHNICAL SHEAR SYSTEM

Take your nylon trauma shear pouch and throw it away... and you can toss those crappy BS shears while you're at it.

The BMD SQUID TECHNICAL SHEAR SYSTEM will be the last emergency trauma shear holster you will ever buy. 

We saw a problem in how PSDs, professional divers, medics and operators have been forced to continually use recreational gear for professional operations. Good enough - but not the best. We decided to change that. And we’re just getting started. 

The BMD SQUID TECHNICAL SHEAR SYSTEM was designed specifically to address these problems in an efficient, executable and essential platform.

Finally a trauma shear holster system that can mount to anything, can be drawn and re-holstered easily with ONE HAND whether you’re a righty or a lefty – even in 5mm or hazmat gloves. No Velcro, no snap straps, no nonsense. Just a click.

BENEFIT FROM ALMOST TWO YEARS OF TESTING AND EVALUATION IN REAL WORLD PSD OPS. 

  • Purpose built for BOTH above & below the waterline. 

  • Access, deploy and re-holster your emergency cutting shears in seconds with just one hand.

  • Tough and durable Kydex design keeps your shears protected and secure - no straps, Velcro or buckles to get in the way of a quick deployment.

  • Large ambidextrous molded opening means effortlessly putting your shears away without looking or fumbling - even in heavy gloves.

  • When paired with the BMD DELTA STRAP there are virtually unlimited mounting options, so the BMD SQUID is at home on any dive, tactical or duty gear.

  • Designed to accept a huge range of mounts and clips to customize your carry options including the BLADETECH TEK-LOKs and MOLLE-LOKs. We named it the SQUID as the back mounting hole pattern reminded us of the feeding tentacles on a giant squid. Like a squid’s tentacles and suckers… once it’s on, it’s on!

  • The BMD SQUID will accept every 7.5” trauma shear on the market – including XShears.

  • Comes equipped with our rugged black fluoride-coated shears manufactured from premium 420 stainless steel. Built for cutting through tough material with a blunt tip to keep the diver/patient safe. They are autoclavable to 290 F. If taken care of, they will not rust. Just dry them off when cleaning your gear post dive.

  • Comes with the BMD DELTA STRAP.

Love these shears. They get the job done and look bad ass. Can’t get enough of there equipment and clothing. Best dive brand out there and always looking out for divers. Thanks Kev and James and team for doing what you do.

No joke, this is the finest shears/system ever produced!

As pointed out in previous reviews, cutting devices are a popular item marketed to divers and PSD's alike, not all are suited to the demanding realms of the PSD. The crew at BMD are experienced, savvy and legit PSD's and PSD Instructors, their knowledge and ability put into every product they make and sell, the shears and the mounting system are no different. I bought two, one for my "civvy" rig and one for my "pro" rig, both offer different mounting choices. The Squid system allows for ease of changing the mounting configuration to allow for a myriad of mounting options. The Kydex holster holds the shears snug, but allows them to be pulled with a simple snap, I compared it to a level II retention holster, with the snap of an intentional pull to break leather. I intentionally abused it, mounting it, pulling it sideways, up, out and every which way I could and the shears were in my hand over and over. Additionally, putting them back in was just as easy. The system is not overly complicated, simple to use, and I'd go so far as to say, instinctual. Sturdy, reliable and dependable are all canons of gear and BMD never compromises anything. When you need shears, it may be a simple reason (cutting open a charcuterie pack between dives) or cutting 200 lb. test mono entangled around your arm and BC, either reason, the shears are there, easy to get to and use and I feel better having them-
