    Combat Codpiece…

    • Don "3gun" chatsky says:

      This is a perfect quick attach accessory when your battle belt needs an extra six magazines. I see this being used all the time.

      Also, only cowards go prone when being shot at. Real men leap towards the direction of fire delivering a withering cyclic rate of fire.

    Cumberbund flap for a belt interesting

    Slimming effect?

  4. Mac says:

    I think it would work better if they would use the metal G Hooks instead of the larger side release buckles.

    • John says:

      Sure, if you want to pay an extra $15 or $20 just for that. Berry-compliant metal hardware isn’t cheap. I’d guess they went with the buckles to keep the price down. And those buckles are regularly trusted and used for military gear, anyway.

      • jim d says:

        ITW G-Hook’s sell on the web for ~$2.50 each. I’m sure the wholesale rate is less, and the split bar buckles from ITW (needing male and female) likely come within a dollar of that cost, anyway.

      • Lasse says:

        A G hook is no more than $1 at the absolute most. 100% markup means it adds 2$ to retail. So $4 for this product- at the absolute most.

        The SRBs do eat up some space, and so does their curved end.

        • John says:

          Yeah, but are those made in America? These guys claim Berry compliance, which means even the hardware is made in the US.

          • Lasse says:

            ITW makes G hooks in the US. It’s a piece of stamped metal, it’s basically the cheapest way you can make metal parts. They might be double what an SRB is, but it’s still less than $1 each, I’d even guess that they are sub 50 cents but I haven’t seen ITW pricing in a bit.

            SRBs take up more space than G-hook. I get that you can use the same slot as the SRB, but we are talking about ~3″ here that is just SRB and not PALS. With a G hook you’d have ~1″. This product is about valuable real estate right?

            • John says:

              I think you miss the point. Where the SRBs goes, depends on your gap, like at the end of their video. If you attach it to the last column of PALS, then the SRBs are covering a part of the belt that doesn’t have PALS to begin with. They say up to 6 columns and even show how sizing effects placement. And looking at ITW G hooks online, prices are $2 and up. Sounds like you just wanna be critical for the sake of it.

            • SSD says:

              But the G Hook can come loose if it’s not under constant load, particularly in this application, while an SR Buckle won’t.

        • John says:

          Also, check out that instructional video. The PALS the SRBs attach to can still be utilized.

  5. Not sure it’d have much place for anyone who might ever need to go prone, think I’d probably prefer to have the PALS on the belt extend closer to the actual openings at the front. That said if you’re shooting some sort of competition or always working stood up (maybe in a fixed position) this is a good alternative to having dangler pouch hanging underneath the front flap of your armour rig.

    “and hundreds of federal agencies.”

    Either this quote is an exaggeration or our Feds need to be reigned in. No way we should have that many agencies wearing tactical gear.

    • Don "3gun" chatsky says:

      are you some sort of communist?

      IRS, Fish and game and many other agencies need those assault rifles and hollow points.

  7. Ivan says:

    I’m sure this will find use for some people/applications. I think this is in reaction to the industry doing a sub-par job on their sizing charts though.

    Most battle-belt sleeves are sized to leave a 6″-10″ gap in the front. (Such as the VTAC Brokos – which is why I mention sizing up in a review I did : https://kitbadger.com/viking-tactics-brokos-belt/ )

    • SamHill says:

      I was thinking the same thing. On every belt sizing chart I’ve seen they give a recommendation on how much space to leave in the front. Now they are selling a piece to put back on.

      • John says:

        It says it only covers gaps up to 2″, so theyre clearly not trying to make up for poor sizing. Seems like this would mostly be for competitive shooters, anyway, who often carry tons of mags. Also, if you check their sizing recommendations, they just say most people want 4″ gaps, but specifically suggest using your own preference in their fitting video

        • Tcba_joe says:

          Lots of cops keep everything on the front and nothing on the back because they’re riding around in cruisers.

          • Bill says:

            That’s what I was thinking, though if I showed up in a real uniform wear wearing a battle belt and this I’d get sent to the agency shrink. It’s an interesting concept though, that kind of fits the Hindi scheme.

  8. Dellis says:

    Not sure if anyone covered this but it seems as if you’re losing some webbing space to gain a few front web spaces?

    I could be all wrong, but just how much stuff does one hang of their battle belt that a few extra spaces are needed? Now someone mentioned competition shooters and for that I can see it being helpful…then again I don’t shoot competition.

    • John says:

      It says up to 6 columns. But if you watch the video, it shows that you don’t necessarily lose anymore PALS than that column you attach the clip to, which still gets covered by a column of PALS to even out. But even the one that overlaps only loses 2 columns, meaning it’s still a net gain of 4 columns. That’s two extra rifle pouches or four pistol pouches. Valuable extra space for someone that needs it.

  9. Thomas Madere says:

    Good idea for a guy like me with a 32 inch waist to gain some extra space. May not be too much of a benefit to someone with a 42 or 46 inch waist.
