Hardpoint Tactical Atlas Support Strip System

Hardpoint Tactical was one of the finalists in 2011’s SPD 9 – Weight Redistribution Device, with their Atlas Support Strip System.

It is designed to work specifically with their Cingulum Battle Belt but will support many different armor systems.

    London Bridge Trading already has something very similar called the “UCASS,” I believe. I hope they asked permission.

    Seems like a nice alternative to the Crye StKSS, velcro attachment to the belt rather than MOLLE, however I’m not sure about it sticking up into my armpits…

    • Thomas says:

      That’s a fair concern, Toby, based upon just looking at it, but I can assure you that that potential problem was certainly taken into account when developing it. Limitations in human anatomy won’t allow a normal-sized person to bend far enough to the side for that to happen. However, they are easy to shorten further with something as simple as the file on a Leatherman tool, if doubts persist.

    Just had a rack on yesterday and was thinking I wish some genius would come up with a way to get this all off my shoulders and put some to my hips…

    My guess is that Atlas is going to save a lot of discs in a lot of backs.

    As with everything you do, good looking out for the troops Hard Point Tactical!
