Modular Belt System Update #2

This is the latest working prototype of our Modular Belt System. As a recap, the system consists of three different components; the Sleeve, the Inner Belt and the Liner Belt (not shown, but available HERE). The result is a lightweight, low profile platform that is comfortable and extremely functional. The user can add any PALS compatible pouches directly to the sleeve or the inner belt can be routed outside the sleeve to allow belt mounted accessories to be attached.

Since the previous post, we've added sub-load access slots on the left and right to allow popular low and mid ride holsters to attach seamlessly to the inner belt. The overall length was also shortened by approximately 2" by deleting the vertical 1" webbing straps.

Modular Belt System Prototype

This is our concept belt system, designed to fill the traditional battle belt roll while maintaining a very streamlined footprint. It is in the prototype phase so there may still be some design changes.

The system consists of liner belt, modular sleeve and a main belt. The liner belt replaces your regular pants belt and features a low profile Velcro closure. The outer face is covered with Velcro loop, which engages the modular sleeve and prevents the system from shifting or riding up.

The sleeve itself is only three inches tall and less than 3/8" thick. At it's core, It is constructed out of a proprietary combination of LDPE and Neoprene, making it an excellent blend of flexibility and rigidity. The outside of the sleeve is made up of segmented panels, beneath which there is a two inch channel for the main belt to pass through. The panels allow the user to route the main belt along the outside to attach belt mounted accessories. As well, at the bottom of each panel there is a slot that allows access to the inside channel for the attachment of sub-loads.

The main belt pictured here is a prototype that features an AustriAlpin D-Ring Cobra buckle. It's made from a single layer of 1.5" Nylon webbing, and is for testing purposes only. With this system, the user can swap in most standard rigger's belts as their main belt.
