Cummerbund for Secure Fit

The 7-inch Hybrid MOLLE cummerbund ensures a secure and snug fit, providing optimal comfort and stability. It enables users to tailor the plate carrier to their body shape, enhancing overall wearability. Available in ROC Buckles or FIRSTSPEAR® TUBES™.

Cummerbund Flap

This flap on the APOC serves as an additional layer of security for the cummerbund. It helps keep the cummerbund in place, ensuring a snug and stable fit for the wearer. This added feature prevents the cummerbund from shifting and peeling during movement, enhancing overall comfort and safety.

Attachments

Defense Mechanisms' MOLLE Cummerbund offers enhanced modularity with the option of ROC Buckles or FirstSpear® Tube Buckles. The ROC Buckles attach and release in a singular direction, which simplifies the operation for consistent performance.

Both systems maintain a focus on rapid and secure attachment, with quick-release features suitable for the diverse requirements of field operations.

Shoulder Straps

Equipped with adjustable extended shoulder straps, the plate bag on our plate carrier ensures both comfort and adaptability for wearers of all sizes.
