This Cummerbund Retrofit Kit replaces the cummerbund and closure on the US Army Issue Soldier Plate Carrier System (SPCS) Gen1, known commercially as the KDH Magnum TAC-1 and its 2 a side 1″ Side Release Buckle (SRB) closure, with our Arbor Arms FLEX elastic cummerbund and First Spear Tubes® or National Molding Taktic Buckles (if you have a SPCS Gen2 see our FRC Kit IOTV (Army) or IOTV Tubes® / Taktic FLEX Cummerbund Kit (Army)
Advantages of FLEX cummerbund on your system
- Perfect Ergonomic fit for Males and Females of every size, and body type – Each MOLLE row can be adjusted individually to accommodate every body type i.e. inverted triangle, column, pear while keeping MOLLE columns aligned for attachment of gear.)
- Increased comfort
- Breathability – The Slotted Elastic of the FLEX system allow the gear to be snug at both the top and the bottom of your breath reducing bounce while running without restricting breathing
- Superior Side SAPI placement – The elasticity of the cummerbund allows the side SAPIs to remain high and snug through the full cycle of breathing providing unbroken protection to the thoracic cavity
- Maximizes MOLLE real-estate both internally and externally on cummerbund – Allowing for low to no access items like side SAPIs and radios to be mounted internally while mounting high access items like magazines and GP pouches externally
- Minimizes MOLLE loss– replacing the 2 a side 1″ SRBs with a Tube® or Taktic pushes MOLLE real-estate to the front of your vest allowing for better placement of critical items such as a speed reload pouch.
- Reduced Fatigue – Due to the reduced bouncy of your kit less energy is wasted during long movements and oxygen levels stay higher due to breath-ability
- Superior Movement – Items attached internally to the cummerbund create a lower profile allowing for ease of movement both in and out of confined spaces
- Ease of Adjustment and Snivel gear flex – Unlike the stock adjustment fine adjustments can be made and the elasticity allows for putting on and taking off snivel gear without adjusting the cummerbund
