High Speed Gear – NVG Counterbalance Pouch

SWANSBORO, North Carolina – Aug. 31, 2015 – High Speed Gear has a history of producing some of the most versatile tactical pouches and platforms in the industry.


In keeping with that standard, High Speed Gear is proud to release its new NVG Counterbalance Pouch, designed by RE Factor Tactical. This pouch is designed specifically for individuals using night vision systems with a battery pack attachment. The pouch comes with two .45-pound steel plates to give the user an additional counterweight of just under 1 pound. When combined with the battery pack and batteries, the total counterweight can equal up to around 1.5 pounds to improve balance and comfort with NVGs.

Unlike other counterweights on the market, the Counterbalance Pouch does not impede the use of the NVG battery pack. The pouch is designed to allow the user to utilize the on-off toggle switch, as well as easily change out batteries without removing the battery pack or pouch. Furthermore, we added three small pockets that can be used to stash survival gear, batteries, or any other small mission-essential items. The pack comes with an outer loop panel for adhesion of patches or the addition of illumination marking equipment. It also includes a hook panel on the back to adhere to the back of common Ops-Core/Team Wendy helmets and two bungee support tabs that can adhere to the sides of the helmet to help secure the pouch in place in austere environments.

The NVG Counterbalance Pouch is available now. Made 100% in the USA by High Speed Gear, and designed by Veterans at RE Factor.

    I understand counterbalance, but more weight on the neck just sucks too.

    Wouldn’t it make more sense to counterbalance with spare battery packs? Or just a larger battery pack?
