MDM 18 – Arbor Arms Tradesmen SALT Belt System

Wednesday, September 26th, 2018

Arbor Arms is another, small Veteran owned company making their first appearance at Modern Day Marine.

While they are displaying numerous products, we haven’t mentioned their Tradesmen Segmented Adaptive Lasercut Trio (SALT) Belt System before. Like the name says, it’s a three component system, consisting of:

1 the Keeper belt (worn on the pants  with loop Velcro to mate the molle sleeve),

2  the Core Cobra belt (this both holds the Sleeve on and provides base for 1 3/4? belt loop attachments ie; holsters and water wings)

3 the  Sleeve (mates to keeper belt, allows for molle attachment and wraps around  Core Cobra belt)

The Keeper belt, which uses a G-hopk closure, can be worn as the base of the system or stand alone as an every day belt.

Atop the Keeper belt is the Core Cobra belt. It is made from type 13 webbing and an AustriAlpin Cobra Buckle. They also sew in a soft loop for safety lanyards.

Finally is the sleeve which wraps around the Core Cobra belt and made from laser-cut Squadron material. It allows the attachment of PALS equipped pouches but is segmented, so sections can be quickly unwrapped without taking the whole thing apart for rapid load adjustment.

The Assaulter Plate Carrier comes with Arbor Arms’ proprietary slotted MOLLE elastic. This elastic allows for very fine adjustments not only for size but body shape providing for a dynamic, comfortable, ergonomic fit.

Friday, November 10th, 2017

Arbor Arms has just released an adapter kit which retrofits their popular Flex Releasable Cummerbund to fit the Army issue, Improved Outer Tactical Vest (Gen 2 & 3).


The FRC kit replaces the standard cummerbund with improved MOLLE Elastic while the Front Hook/Loop closure system is replaced with the FLEX Cobra Buckle by AustriAlpin.


Additionally, the FRC improves ease of access for combat medical treatment.


The kit integrates with the current cutaway and offers the wearer a quick and quiet doff and don.

Arbor Arms – Flex Release Cummerbund

Monday, March 13th, 2017

Arbor Arms’ Flex Releasable Cummerbund Kit (FRC Kit) is a cummerbund retrofit kit that incorprates the Arbor Arms FLEX Cobra buckle by AustriAlpin. Additionally, the kit replaces the cummerbund’s standard, wide bands with these three 1″ elastic straps.


However, the Flex Releasable Kit goes even further than just replacing your cummerbund with a simpler means of closure. It’s also a releasable system for their plate carriers.


You might recognize this as the Derma cummerbund from Ares Armor, but Arbor Arms is the new company by designer, Jon Zum.
