This kit is for owners of the previous generation IcePlate EXO® (shipped before 14JUN 2022) to upgrade from the Aspetto MOLLE Cummerbund to the new Velcro MOLLE Cummerbund and our IcePlate EXO® MOLLE Placard. This kit brings more functionality, stretch, and sizing to our existing IcePlate EXO® customers.
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.
- Elastic-stretch Shock Cord SizzleSticks provide room to breathe, enhanced maneuverability and adapt to climate-specific layering
- Laser-cut from our unique IcePlate EXO® laminate
- Three MOLLE Strands attach to IcePlate EXO® through the dedicated IcePlate EXO® Side Ports and Negative MAPs using custom-cut OneWrap Tails
- SizzleSticks preserve the full functionality of both MOLLE and loop tape are preserved for unparalleled strength, comfort, versatility and flatness
- Cummerbund is ultralight, weighing in at a scant 4.5 ounces
- Laser cut negative maps on the MOLLE Placard let you add the MOLLE compatible accessories you need.
