After extensive testing and field trials Velocity Systems is releasing their new Operator’s Utility Belt. Designed to be worn with a first line or rigger’s type belt, this padded belt sleeve is constructed with a “less is more” approach.
For starters, it’s narrower than other belts allowing for greater comfort and mobility while maintaining ample real estate to mount additional pouches and equipment. The key to this feature is its skeletonized insert which allows sweat to escape and air to circulate. It also makes the belt at least 25% lighter than other comparable models. Not only does it feature an ergonomic cut to properly contour the waist but it also accommodates a wide variety of riggers belts as well as the new Velocity Systems “Tac Belt”. The segmented designs allows you to customize the load by exposing the inner belt to attach holsters and other gear directly to it. Other pouches can be attached directly to the OUB. One user also mentioned to us, “There was still enough room to route a couple of flex cuffs through the belt channel also but not excessive space where the belt might shift around too much in the pad.”
I think a comment from “Dale” a sworn officer who wore the OUB during the recent Connecticut SWAT Challenge sums it up best, “The new Velocity Systems OUB is another great design by a cutting edge company, they are the new norm in functional and professional load bearing belt systems.”
The OUB is offered in Black, Coyote Brown, Desert Digital, and MultiCam. To choose the proper size measure your waist over your existing belt when worn.
Small (33” – 38”)
Medium (37” – 42”)
Large (41” – 46”)
X-Large (45” – 50”)
Demand is high for this belt. It is available now at Grey Group – store.greygrouptraining.com.
