COBRA HALO Buckle from AustriAlpin and Bushido Tactical

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013


Bushido Tactical collaborates with renowned COBRA® buckle manufacturer, AustriAlpin to manufacture the patent pending Bushido Tactical COBRA®® HALO™ quick release buckles.

HALO™ – Heavy Duty, Aluminum, Low Profile, Operator buckle comes in three versions HALO1, HALO2, HALO3 – two versions currently used to eliminate the front Velcro panel fastener commonly seen in traditional tactical nylon vest and plate carriers.

“We started manufacturing newly improved plate carriers (Guardian & Sentinel) and tactical vest (Itus), including a retro-fit cummerbund utilizing our innovative HALO™ buckles at the requests of many law enforcement officers and operators who were tired of the antiquated system using front Velcro panels. They wanted an easier faster way to get in and out of their plate carriers without having to remove magazines and fumbling with the Velcro flap.”
– Wade Rorich, Operating Manager of Bushido Tactical, LLC.

The HALO™’s slim “H” design helps retain maximum armor protection eradicating any possible gaps, which could compromise the operator’s safety. Bushido Tactical nylon gear incorporating the HALO™™ buckles available December 2013.

• Solid, lightweight aluminum construction
• Slim “H” design
• Quick release buckle utilizing the COBRA® buckle locking mechanism
• Patent Pending HALO2 and HALO3 versions offered
• MOLLE compatible HALO3 buckle
• Available in Matte Black and Coyote Brown

Skedco Cobra Buckle Retrofit Kit ADS Tactical

Saturday, March 26th, 2011

Available for the past 30 years, there are uncounted Skedco litters out there. Many users have asked for a quicker way to configure the litters and Skedco listened. They recently released a Cobra Buckle retrofit kit. The actual litters themselves are extremely durable but over time straps abrade or are damaged and buckles break. This kit includes both Cobra buckles as well as new straps so it’s a great way to breathe some new life into an older litter as well as increase its utility. Manufactured by Austrialpin, Cobra buckles are rated at a 3000 lbs break strength. They work just like standard side release buckles but are machined from aluminum and will not open under load.
