Cummerbund HPC - Hexatac
Our Rigid Cummerbunds have been designed to provide a lightweight , rigid and comfortable solution for operators who tend to load their Cummerbunds.
By ordering on this page, you will receive :
2 identical symmetrical Cummerbunds of the chosen size & a length of thick elastic cord .
Hexatac Rigid Cummerbunds are available in 2 sizes : Medium and Large. Choose your usual size – if you are in doubt, you will find realistic visuals of our cummerbunds below.
For Cummerbunds in size Medium for example, the total length of the two cummerbunds end to end is 101cm. This is pretty much the minimum setting. You can modulate the exact size of your Cummerbunds thanks to the elastic cord provided ( see video presentation ) and reach a size of up to 130cm.
This elastic cord will also allow you to modulate the firmness of the support of your cummerbunds by performing a single pass for a flexible support or two and more for a firm support.
Our Rigid Cummerbunds are composed of two rows of MOLLE loops . Thanks to the composite skeleton (of the same nature as that of our HMB® Belts ), these two lines are more than enough, even for carrying radios , side ballistic plates , etc.
You will find MOLLE on the outside but also on the inside, which makes it possible to mount equipment on both sides of the cummerbunds and even simultaneously in the same location.
Loop Velcro on the inside allows ballistic plate pockets to be anchored and various Velcro inserts to be used.
On the HPC® Plate Carrier Vest or any other vest compatible with 3-row skeleton cummerbunds, you will have the choice between two mounting positions : a high position and a low position.
As a general rule, we advise you to mount your Hexatac Rigid Cummerbunds in the low position at the rear and high at the front ( see presentation video ). This will allow you to keep your Plate Carrier in the right position to properly cover your vital areas with your ballistic protection.
The rear anchoring of our Rigid Cummerbunds is done by means of the supplied elastic cord . Simply braid alternately left and right depending on size and desired tension. If you mount our Rigid Cummerbunds on our HPC® Plate Carrier Vest , you can braid through the central vertical loops to keep your cummerbunds perfectly centered.
The locking at the front is done by means of velcro panels . They will even allow you to lock your Plate Carrier Vest on the front of your HMCR® for example. Opening is made easier thanks to the tabs sewn to the ends of the Velcro closing panels.
Quick release kits are under development but in the meantime, our Rigid Cummerbunds allow a simple and effective quick release system ( see presentation video) .
