We saw a really cool NVG Head Harness in the Adams Industries booth (SHOT Show booth #5008) that is made by Black Bag Designs LLC and is 100% Berry compliant. It is crafted from Jaquard weave Multicam Webbing from Murdock webbing, printed MultiCam loop from Velcro USA and hardware from ITW and National Molding.

The Idea Isn’t Necassarily New, But The Implementation Is – Molly Stix

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

When National Molding sent us info on the Molly Stix earlier this week, my first thought was, “Yes, I see what you’ve done here.”

According to National Molding:
Molly Stixs are easily woven between the webbing and with a simple flip of the top latch they are locked in place. Molly Stixs secure and stabilize the accessory onto the pack or armor and when in comes time to remove the item a quick flip of the locking tab or tug on the optional lanyard and the item if few in seconds. Two or more can be linked together with para-cord and released in unison

The idea is simple, it’s just that nobody has done it yet, at least specifically for PALS. The first time I saw something like this on a tactical product was in the early 80s. The Lowe Alpine Systems LOCO pack had a removable rappelling harness waist belt. It was held in place on the pack with a tethered, rubber-coated aluminum bar that was inserted between webbing. Two pieces were on the pack and the third piece was the weight bearing portion of the waist belt strap. It worked and this will too.
