Warrior Expo – LBX’s Armatus Ver 2

Developed in conjunction with Chris Costa, the Armatus armor carrier has a new variant. Based on end user feedback, they’ve introduced a fully modular MAP system carrier.  

In addition to removable panels up front there are also now removable rear panels.  

It incorporates Hypalon shoulder straps with removable padding, a breathable mesh cummerbund and a streamlined front design that covers the attachment clips for the MAP.  

Although it comes configured with a PALS panel they are also looking at introducing a pouch panel and a backpack panel.

    Maybe the Army, and the Corps, should look into this so they don’t have to worry about a pattern just for gear or, in the case of the Corps, making them in a solid color and ruining the effect of the camo on the uniform. Just make 3 (2 for the Corps) versions of these covers and they can switch them out depending on what camo they’re wearing at the time. Of course the downside would be removing and putting pouches and stuff back on every time they switch panels.

    This is awesome, I see it being very popular. I’d like to try one out

    This is what the first evolution should’ve been.

    Was rather surprised they didn’t offer a version like this along with the current version (which could’ve been marketed as the ‘Slick’) in the first place.

    Shame about the buckles not playing ball with the VOCR line and MR&C/Vel Sys placards. Even for the airsoft market there’s plenty of demand for a PC that can mount the D3CR.

    Definitely a step in the right direction for the line anyway.

      A Haley project mounted to a Costa project? Dude. Come on now.

      You’ve totally nailed it. It’s something I’ve told my LBX rep, why the frack would you not make it play well with others? This is what’s throwing it down the well when it comes to pricing and use. It’s a nice product but since you cannot use other systems with it, what’s stopping you from going to a APC?
