Unyielding strength. Adjustable Fit and Adjustable Stretch.
Introducing the ICEPLATE EXO® MOLLE Cummerbund Retrofit Kit for existing ICEPLATE EXO® owners. This kit works with all generations of ICEPLATE EXO®.
The ICEPLATE EXO® MOLLE Cummerbund utilizes our patent-pending SizzleStick attachment mechanism to give you two methods of size adjustment and adjustable stretch. SizzleSticks go inside the rear ICEPLATE EXO® plate bag and feature a series of holes through which Shock Cord is routed. The MOLLE Cummerbund strands are then routed through the Shock Cord loops and secured to themselves using the included OneWrap. The Shock Cord is what provides the stretch for ICEPLATE EXO, but the size of the Shock Cord loops is also adjustable to vary the amount of stretch available in the ICEPLATE EXO MOLLE Cummerbund.
Adjustable Fit and Adjustable Stretch
To our knowledge, this (adjustable size and stretch) has never been done before in a plate carrier. Traditional stretch cummerbunds simply use elastic. While elastic is great (we use plenty of it in our ICEVEST line of safety vests with cooling/heating/hydration), it is hot and absorbs/retains water. Shock Cord delivers better stretch and has far less material so it breathes/ventilates better than elastic and it hardly absorbs any water since it has so little mass.
Works with other Cummerbunds
Another key feature of our SizzleStick cummerbund attachment mechanism is that it can accept other cummerbunds like the ARC V2 Cummerbund by Shaw Concepts or the Airlite Structural Cummerbund by Crye Precision.
Ventilated Three Strand Design
Utilizing a three strand design for maximum stability when mounting Side SAPIs, -148/-152/-163, PSC5/MPU5, XTS, APX or whatever radio alphabet soup applies to you, the ICEPLATE EXO® MOLLE Cummerbund takes an absolute minimalist approach to design for maximum breathability, adjustable fit, and weight savings without compromising full duty durability. The ICEPLATE EXO® MOLLE Cummerbund is laser-cut from our unique ICEPLATE EXO laminate (100% Made in USA) for a clean, smooth, and matching aesthetic that is as strong as it is good looking. Each MOLLE section is precision bar tacked by fully automated, cutting edge robotics for duty-grade durability and precision. There isn't a single stitch or cut done by hand when we manufacture our ICEPLATE EXO® MOLLE Cummerbund.
