Misty Mountain Integrated Stealth Harness (ISH) Selected By Australian Defence Forces

Sunday, February 7th, 2016


February 5, 2016 – North Carolina based small manufacturer Misty Mountain Threadworks, Inc. announced that it has entered into a partnership with Australian based military and tactical distributor Southern Cross Equipment PTY LTD of New South Wales, Australia to supply the Australian Department of Defence with Misty Mountain’s ISH harness.

Misty Mountain and Southern Cross have been working together for three years to develop the market for ISH and other Misty Mountain harnesses in Australia and New Zealand. Their first meeting was at the biannual Outdoor Retailer Trade Show in held in Salt Lake City, UT. Spencer McDonald of Southern Cross stopped at the Misty Mountain booth manned by Operations Manager Mike Lavarnway and President Goose Kearse. Spencer’s eye was caught by the Integrated Stealth Harness, a scalable personal protection system with belt, leg loops, and chest harness. ISH was designed and developed in conjunction with retired USAF PJ Ish Antonio and is the harness solution for USSOCOM’s TCCC CASEVAC Kit.

Spencer seeded key operators in the ADF with Misty Mountain harnesses and gear. He took in their feedback and helped Misty Mountain develop custom solutions as needed to best meet the Australian requirements. As a result of the Australian commandos’ evaluation of the ISH system they have selected the ISH Original Belt, Leg Loops, and Chest Harness for their personal protective harness. The ISH Sit Kit formed by the ISH Original Belt and Leg Loops and the ISH Chest harness all carry the UIAA Safety Label. For more information about ISH or any other of Misty Mountain’s climbing gear please visit Misty Mountain’s military and tactical gear is made in the USA and Berry Amendment Compliant. In Australia and New Zealand, Southern Cross is the exclusive distributor of Misty Mountain gear. Please find them at

S&S Precision Maker Monday – Maritime Kit

Monday, February 1st, 2016

For this week’s Maker Monday, we’re running a piece by S&S Precision on their recommended Maritime Kit based on their product line.

We often hear, “What should I include in my maritime kit?” Here’s an overview of what we recommend for maritime or other potentially hazardous high moisture environments.



The PlateFrame is a rigid minimalistic plate carrier unlike any other on the market. Designed to be strong and light weight, the PlateFrame is deceptively modular and scalable to meet operational requirements. (Patents Pending)

  • Non-hygroscopic
  • Mission adaptable
  • PALS/Webbing compatible
  • Custom molded to any ballistic plate
  • Custom text/logo cutouts available
  • Weight: 1 lb 6 oz


    Release System

    This intuitive design is a single pull release from any direction with the user’s dominant or non-dominant hand detaching the shoulder strap and cummerbund in an instant. The PlateFrame Release System is retrofitted to any S&S Precision PlateFrame and can be installed on the left and/or right hand side depending on user preference.

  • Injection molded shoulder and cummerbund buckles
  • Low Profile Pull handle
  • Stainless steel swage balls and coated cable
  • Simple cable management sleeve
  • MaritimeKit4

    Closed Cell Floatation

    The closed cell floatation system is made from closed cell foam and serves to counter the weight of a ballistic plate for neutral buoyancy. The floatation system is capable of neutralizing up to 5 lbs per plate, 10 lbs per set.


    Cummerbund Adapter

    The Cummerbund Adapter is a modular attachment platform for use with S&S Precision’s minimalist PlateFrame. Designed for reinforced strength and modularity, it attaches via simple buckles for reliability.
    The cummerbund’s inner webbing provides additional space for PALS/Webbing accessories. Finally, it’s made from a water resistant material for use in maritime or other high moisture environments.

    Additional Cummerbund Adapters available: Cummerbund Adapter with Flap, & Cummerbund Adapter with Flap and Radio

    The ELOS 5.56, is a flexible magazine holder providing maximum magazine retention. The ELOS is manufactured from an injection molded elastomer to provide excellent tear resistance, noise reduction, and the ability to withstand severe impact forces preventing cracking or crushing through a wide range of temperatures and environments. Additional pistol and rifle caliber will be available in the future. (Patents Pending)

  • Flexible injection molded elastomer
  • Tear, crack, and weather resistant
  • Reduces noise
  • GRT adaptable

    LiftR Series Modular Floatation

    The LiftR-40 is intended to be used in surface and subsurface operations. The LiftR-40 is attached to existing combat equipment by slipping it on and over the shoulder straps and cummerbund of the operator’s plate carrier. The LiftR-40 is self-packing and modular to fit most brand’s plate carriers. The LiftR-40 provides the appropriate amount of lift necessary to bring a diver/swimmer to the surface and float them in a face up orientation. The Depth/Lift Requirements are assuming the operator is wearing a full operational equipment load.

    The LiftR Series Modular Floatation can be worn with or without armor using one of the two attachment systems below. The Stand Alone Harness is used when armor is not needed but floatation is critical. The Rebreather Attachment System allows the operator to easily connect rebreather systems to the S&S Precision PlateFrame and LiftR.
