NOTE: This LV/119 Cummerbund is designed for use with a front O V E R T and rear O V E R T or C O V E R TLV/119 plate bag. The LV119 Cummerbund is part of the LV119 Plate Carrier System. This item does not include a Front Plate Bag, Rear Plate Bag, Shoulder Covers, Placards, or any other accessories. Additional components are required for proper use.
The TUBES™ MOLLE Cummerbund was designed to be a lightweight and simple load carriage solution for the LV/119 series of vests. Using the widely adopted MOLLE system, the cummerbund offers almost infinite configurations for mission needs by utilizing any MOLLE accessory that can be found on the market. The cummerbund is designed to allow simultaneous use of the same MOLLE cell for products mounted on the inside and outside of the cummerbund.
The cummerbund attachment is a proprietary system that allows for the use of all of our cummerbunds, as well as allowing for a wide range of adjustment. The cummerbund attaches inside the plate bag, which is advantageous for a few reasons.
1. There is no external mounting that can get snagged or rip off when exiting vehicles in haste.
2. The design creates a smooth profile when worn underneath clothing.
3. Velcro is not utilized as an attachment method on the rear plate bag. Velcro wears out over time and is a generally less-than-optimal attachment method when not supported in other ways. Velcro doesn't handle weight well and it sticks to everything, especially cloth seats.
4. Every front plate bag comes standard with sewn loops on the sides for attaching First Spear TUBES™ for use with our TUBES™ cummerbund.
The cummerbund comes in two sizes: Size 1 and Size 2, each offering up to 14 inches of total adjustment. This allows for a proper fitment for a wide variety of body types. To figure out appropriate sizing, take a measurement of the waist at the belly button. When measuring, users should dress as they would while actually wearing the carrier. For example, if the user is operating in arctic environments, they should be wearing cold weather equipment when measuring.
Size 1: 28" to 42"
Size 2: 40" to 54"
If your waist measurement is 42", we suggest going up to the Size 2 cummerbund.
