While optimized and originally designed for our ICEPLATE EXO® Ultralight Minimalist Plate Carrier with Cooling/Heating/Hydration, the eponymous AirLite Structural Cummerbund Adapter is caveman simple. It allows the AirLite Structural Cummerbund by Crye Precision to be used on any plate carrier with a Velcro loop field. Nothing fancy, nothing special. Just two pieces of Velcro brand hook and loop strips, precision cut by laser here at our HQ, then sewn together with exactly the right dimensions for the Crye Precision AirLite Cummerbund.
Our Airlite Structural Cummerbund Adapter is designed specifically to interface with and optimize the use of the Crye Airlite Structural Cummerbund on our ICEPLATE EXO® as well as other plate carriers such as the Crye Precision JPC 2.0 and the Spiritus Systems LV-119. The Airlite Structural Cummerbund is a customer favorite, which is why we created the adapter. The Crye Precision Airlite Structural Cummerbund derives its rigidity from the inherent strength of an unbroken circle. Our adapter gives the end-user the opportunity to apply this concept to their specific application.
Why does the AirLite Structural Cummerbund Adapter exist?
Our purpose as a company is Building A Superhuman Future® by liberating human and machine from environmental constraints. Sometimes, like in the case of our ICEPLATE EXO® Ultralight Minimalist Plate Carrier (the worlds first and only plate carrier designed with thermoregulation and performance enhancement organically integrated from the ground up) we build a product that requires an ancillary capability that does not align with why we exist as a company. That is what happened with the need for a structural cummerbund and ICEPLATE EXO®. While we are the innovators and market leaders in thermoregulation, we are not the best in the world at making structural cummerbunds. We don’t want to be and we aren’t even going to try. ICEPLATE EXO® works great with the ARC V2 Cummerbund, but some users still prefer the AirLite Structural Cummerbund. Now, with the AirLite Cummerbund Adapter, you can have the best of both worlds.
The AirLite Structural Cummerbund Adapter is 100% Made in USA from US materials right here at our Knoxville, TN HQ.
Had an extra SPC cumberbund and JPC sitting around and wanted to try this adapter out. Great product, sturdier than Jerry rigging and inexpensive. Makes the JPC ride almost as nice as the SPC. Great stuff Qore
