Two New Products From Platatac

Platatac has recently released two new products: a new combat belt, and a Special Forces bronze figurine.

Platatac Soldier Integrated Combat Cobra (SICC) Belt Mk2

The SICC Belt Mk2 is Platatac’s update on the classic SICC belt. The primary addition to the updated belt is an additional column of MOLLE-compatible webbing to better support the attachment of pouches, which makes the SICC Mk2 an even more stable platform for a pistol holster. Manufactured from high strength, abrasion resistant webbing, and featuring an aluminum Cobra Buckle, the SICC Mk2 is also great for running mag pouches, multiple utility pouches for general use, or just holding up a pair of pants.


Available in Black, Khaki, and MultiCam.

Platatac/Naked Army ‘SF Operator’ Cold-Cast Bronze Figurine

Platatac partnered with Naked Army to develop this cold cast bronze figurine of a coalition SF Operator. 1:6 scale, the figure incorporates elements of Operators from towards the end of the War in Afghanistan from countries including Australia, Canada, UK, USA, and New Zealand. Dressed in typical SF gear, the figure is carrying an M4 SOF MOD carbine with suppressor, scope, SureFire light, and Advanced Target Pointer/Illuminator/Aiming Laser, and an HK 9mm USP as a secondary.

    I thought up the same concept to keep my pouches from sliding around a few months back. It seems your execution turned out leagues better than mine, well done!

    shame none of the stitching/strop points are rated… just another airsoft belt

    • SSD says:

      Yes, because everybody uses their belt as a life support device.

      • Felix says:

        SSD, you forgot that fast roping and rappeling are the primary ways of operator movement 😉

        Walking, driving and running are only softair style.

        BTW: Nice belt, reminds me on an existing US product, have to try this one out!

        • Whitesands says:

          Why wear a belt and carry a harness… If you can just wear a belt? That’s the way we roll.

          • SSD says:

            Well, that’s not the way most people who wear Riggers belts roll. They wear them to hold their pants up and that’s it.

            Very, very few belts on the market are certified and the folks that buy them wouldn’t know to ask to see the certification unless they actually used their belts as a life support device. Very, very few folks who wear them also have a tether and if they do, it probably wasn’t certified either.

            I’ll jump on it because it’s rare to see the belts actually used as life support items.

            • Whitesands says:

              It’s weird, but believe it or not… Those very very few companies that did take the time to get their belts certified….. Actually advertise as such, turns out small details like that are important and help justify prices.

              • SSD says:

                And this one isn’t advertised as though it is, so I’m trying to figure out what the agenda is.

                • Whitesands says:

                  Why does there have to be an agenda? It simply is as stated by bob, to bad that it’s not rated, and appeals largely to the weekend trainer and air soft movement, as opposed to the actual professionals. Nice belt, just not very usable in the real world.

                  • SSD says:

                    Lol, I’m sorry but the “real world” wears pants….lol

                  • Platatac says:

                    Hi white sands,

                    We have looked into getting this belt rated in Australia.

                    Stay tuned for future versions as we will see how we go.

                    At the end of the day the way the belt is built with one piece of type 13 webtape and all the bartacks and tkt40 stitching, if the lanyard attachment point was to come undone the all the stitching, all the bartacks would have to unravel and i think the cobra buckle would go before that. I’m unsure of the load rating of a bartack off the top of my head but its a fair bit if I’m not mistaken.

                    As i say we are looking into having them rated in some capacity but ADF doesn’t really like cobra buckles which is why the blackhawk CQB belt and another belt are the in service belts.

                    So a version of the SICC belt with the para buckle may be in order in the future.

      • Neisty says:

        no, not every body. but those who actualy need a riggers belt for reasons other than a fassion statement, may actualy want a riggers belt for rigging! You shouldnt be so fast to jump and bite, SSD, Bob is right, the strop point its a fassion accessory and should not look like a strop point if it is not intended as one. its an unsafe practise

        • BM says:


          Don’t throw rocks in glass houses.


          • neisty says:

            Thanks for the advice, BM, but ill chuck my stones were ever the heck I like, Having taken a few of my own windows out in the process, Should have a few more done and dusted in the next 12 months. going to be a good year

        • SSD says:

          It’s to dummy cord your pistol.

          • seans says:

            There are lots better ways to dummy cord your pistol. And I am a HRST master, and if some one showed up in my line with a belt like this for a inspection, I am not going to question it’s load rating, and I don’t know a single other HRST master who honestly would.

          • BM says:

            The tether point also comes about from feedback when working with MWD and LE Dog Handlers.

  3. D says:

    Is that hook or loop on the inside?

  4. Gary says:

    Pretty interesting.
    Is the logo tag at the bottom of the belt sewn in?

  5. AJ says:

    Its a copy of the TYR gunfighter belt, with a soft loop instead of a metal ring. I wonder if it is any stiffer, which is the only knock I have on the TYR version.

    • PLATATAC says:

      Yes it is similar and we have used two layers of resin treated type 13 webtape to give it as much rigidity as possible.

      As nice as the TYR one is, the idea for the dual 1/2″ webtape on a riggers belt did not start with them.

      • mike says:

        I love TYR and think their Gunfighter belt is AWESOME, but the last time I ordered one for a customer it took so long to come through that Ryan could have walked one of these to Virginia from Australia by hand and still had a month to spare. In the interest of time I would get the Platatac version going forward.

  6. Nev says:

    you don’t hook in to fast rope and if you’ve ever tried absailing with just a rigger belt you’ll know it isn’t the best option in fact it’s pretty dangerous and uncomfortable with full kit, probably the biggest use of rigger belts Is safety lines in helo’s

    • Felix says:

      The fast roping and rappeling thing was just a joke mate 🙂

      • Nev says:

        Not directed specifically at you bud but at a few people who think absailing off a belt is a good idea, slightly concerned people genuinely advoacate ditching the correct kit, even certified they a restraints not harnesses

  7. Blaine B. says:

    Don’t ever do away with the comment section SSD. I have almost as much fun reading them as I do the articles.

  8. CTF says:

    I like it. If you’re still doing cool guy stuff in bad places you’re probably issued a belt that is already certified..

  9. PLATATAC says:

    This belt has now been tested and meets Australian Standard: AS/NZS 1891.1 1995 Industrial Fall Arrest Systems and Devices, Part 1 Safety Belts and Harnesses.
