    I was literally hours away from looking to see if a product like this existed (that isnt a trauma pad), way to go FS

    For those with/considering the AAC or other PCs without the padding of the Strandhogg, definitely a strong shout.

      As long as it’s a breathable fabric. Normal Cordura wouldn’t give the full benefit of this.

        great point.

        Yeah. Seems like there’s a real gap in the marketplace for a simple velcro-on foam airflow panel like the ones the Russians use. This is a step in the right direction but it’d be better on the inside face of the carrier, rather than inside the platebag. I can’t imagine this working well on a 6094, for example.

          Check out the SKD Brig if you want a Velcro on stand-off pad.

            You mean the pontoon pads? Yeah, I actually have them in there right now. They’re good, I like them. Just feel like there could be something better, you know? Think like the AVS 1000 removable back panel, or the prototype LBT collab vest they showed a while back (I think it was LBT x RB1?)

    Actually our company has prototypes of exactly this undergoing field testing.
    They should be available early 2019.

    One set of FS backers came home today. Well build, not thougth, not soft. I am using it in JPC 2.0 with steel plates. Will see how it works in the field soon.
