Mayflower Introduces New Helium Whisper Assault Back Panels

Mayflower Research and Consultinghas introduced two new, purpose built, Helium Whisper assault panels consisting of the Type 1 Mod 2 and the Type 2. Like I said, they are purpose built and designed to accommodate the minimum amount of equipment for short duration dismounted missions. It’s all about the application and associated load. Both are PALS compatible and while they were designed for use with MRC vests, they will adapt to a wide variety of platforms. Just a note, both panels in Coyote Brown and MultiCam are on the shelf now, but Mayflower promises additional colors to follow. Naturally, these are made in the USA.

Type 1 Mod 2 HW

    Nice. I wonder how much of it hangs off of a S/M APC.

      I know medium kdh magtac gen 1s have 6 rows of molle webbing so judging from the back panel, I would say it hangs down past it, maybe a little past the kidney 3a armor, maybe not

      I have a S/M APC with the previous version of the Back Panel and there was no over hang

    Pretty interesting concept, a mid line between nothing and a assault pack. Nothing against this product but at first glance it reminds me of the 1928 Haversack.

    Fantastic. The Type 2 is one I’ve been hoping for. And Helium Whisper on top of it? Yes! Hopefully it first well on a JPC.
