SHOT Show 17 – Velocity Systems Overview

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

In case you missed Velocity Systems at SHOT Show, here are five great new products. We’ll have more detailed articles on each one soon but I can tell you that if you already like the SCARAB LT, you’re going to love the SCARAB DLX.

The Placard Chest Rig Adapter is made with Helium Whisper and designed to turn their placards into a chest rig (attach placard to Chest Rig Adapter and clip into their H Harness using ITW Buckles).

The Tactical Back Panel was designed to be used in conjunction with any of their chest rigs. If the Plate Sleeve is used the kit can hold both front and back hard armor plates (Plate Sleeve and Chest Rigs sold separately). The panel includes an internal plate pocket and separate hydration bladder pocket.

The Mayflower Jungle Kit is designed to provide a load carriage solution for the hot, wet jungle environment. Features include an H-harness with removable padding, a sternum strap and pouch options. The pouches were designed around the amount and type of equipment usually needed for long duration jungle patrolling. All the pouches feature the Helium Whisper attachment system (zero water absorbency) and large diameter drain holes.

The 48 Hour Assault Pack Includes an integrated hydration bladder sleeve, small pocket for cell phone or PDA, PALS webbing on left exterior side, water bottle compression sleeve on right exterior side and an open top compression pocket on front.

The SCARAB™ DLX is Velocity Systems top of the line carrier in innovative technology and comfort. Weighing in at 1.6 lbs., the SCARAB ™ DLX is 20% lighter than the already ultra-light SCARAB ™ LT. The new design includes an interior frame built to put space between your body and the carrier for passive cooling and blunt trauma reduction. The revolutionary material used prevents the MOLLE capable triangles from long-term distortion or loss of shape. The ergonomically designed and adjustable padded shoulder straps articulate on a D-ring allowing them to sit correctly and comfortably on any user, regardless of neck width or shoulder broadness. The SCARAB™ DLX includes Integrated SwiftClip® buckles for rapid don/doff of auxiliary chest worn equipment (i.e. Chest Rigs and SwiftClip® Placards), and secure plate pockets that have Velcro® brand fasteners on the closure flap as well as on the interior plate strap.

All materials and workmanship are 100% made in the USA.

AUSA – Mayflower Jungle Rig from Velocity Systems

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016

Velocity Systems continues to refine their Mayflower Jungle Rig. Those of you familiar with pre-GWOT British load carriage systems, particularly those used by British SF, will recognize the design inspiration at work. For example, a bungee is routed through the pouches in order to reduce bounce.

Below, you can see the pad. While it’s stiffened, it has spacer mesh and ventilation holes cut in the stiffener. Additionally, you can see the use of Blue Force Gear’s Helium Whisper.

Material selection was very important. The ULTRAcomp fabric is stiff enough to give the pouch and lid body so that the rig doesn’t flop around, despite its light weight. This construction also makes it easier to insert magazines. The Mayflower Jungle Rig offers both 2 x 7.62 magazine and 3 x 5.56 magazine pouches. In addition to Velcro closures, they’ve also incorporated Side-Release buckles for use during mobility, maritime and air operations on the magazine and GP pouches.

This photo gives you a different perspective of the pouch construction. The ULTRAcomp wraps around bottom of the pouch. There are also drain holes in the bottom of the pouches.

The sides of the Magazine Pouches feature PALS webbing for the attachment of grenade or other pouches. Although it’s not specifically addressed in this article, there’s also a Grenade Pouch which will hold the M67. It can also be used for a compass or other items.

The GP Pouch is quite versatile. The pouch has a skirt to keep debris out and will hold jackets up to Arc’teryx Atom LT in size or the Velocity Systems Basha with bungees and pins. The GP pouch is also sized to accept several models of canteens including the Nalgene 32 oz, 44 pattern (or later) water bottle, and Canadian cold weather model. It will also accept the British two-piece mess tin.

While the shoulder straps are low profile for wear under packs and armor, they’ve introduced removable padded sections.

Considering the amount of carrying capacity, it’s extremely lightweight. I didn’t get to weigh it, but it was obvious when I picked it up. Much of this is due to the materials used in its construction.

No release date yet. They are still working a few components such as a 40mm pouch which integrates with the shoulder straps.
