STORM Plate Carrier - SIOEN
The STORM Plate Carrier has been designed for operators. This vest, having the particularity of being mounted on a harness, will greatly increase the comfort of operators, who will have the need to carry heavy loads (Nij IV plates, large ammunition carry, backpack, etc.), and this , over the duration required by your mission.
The harness of this vest, designed by operators, will solve the problems of asymmetry of other harnesses currently on the market.
It is divided into three parts: one on the top which will continue to the shoulders, two others on the bottom which will each start on their respective side. They are fitted with elastic cord to allow them to stretch when your movements require it. The ends of the harness that pass under the cummerbunds will be fixed by Velcro under the front panel, or lodged under your front plate in a loop provided to hold it.
The front plate:
The front plate has a velcro surface for attaching the front panel of your choice. It will be suitable for any type of front panel fixing (ITW Clips, G-Hook)
On the upper part of the plate, you will find a velcro surface to attach a PTT or patches. But this surface also has soft loops so you can attach a phone case (Kägwerks or other...). Other soft loops on the sides of this surface will help you to fix your PTT but also for the cable management of your radio.
Finally, on the top you will find an administrative pocket that will allow you to store a notebook, etc...
The presence of ROC fasteners on the shoulders will make it easier for you to fit this plate carrier, but will also be a big advantage if you need medical treatment and a third party has to unequip you.
The back plate:
The back plate is completely covered with molle loops to allow you to attach the pockets of your choice. They will also allow the attachment of accessories such as a radio antenna in your back.
The sides of the rear plate have zips in order to be able to attach a back panel or the SIOEN BackPack which is part of the ecosystem of this plate carrier designed to be mounted on this vest using the zips so as not to disturb the operator through the straps of a backpack.
The cummerbunds are the parts that go over your ribs to secure the front and back plates of your vest. On the STORM, they will pass over the harness which aims to distribute the loads. The side pockets can be attached directly to the molle loops of the harness, and the cummerbund will go over them.
The cummerbunds are attached by ROC clips that allow you to unclip quickly if you need medicalization.
The front panel:
In order to adapt to everyone, the original front panel is covered with molle loops on which you can attach the molle pockets of your choice.
However, we recommend that users with 5.56 loaders switch to a front panel from the SIOEN ecosystem or the SLEDS that we also use.
Two types of shoulder pads will be included with the STORM. A pair all in spandex (elastic fabrics) covering the velcro parts of the harness to make their surface smooth and not to catch them. A padded pair to increase comfort around your trapezius muscles.
