The HAWK Plate Carrier front and back is composed by the following elements:
• HAWK Plate Carrier, front and rear plates bags
• Comfort Shoulder Pads
The ergonomic shape of the shoulder pads and of their semi-rigid inserts is designed to wrap around the shoulder, distribute the weight on the trapezius muscle and relieve neck fatigue, allowing at the same time for maximum freedom of movement and a secure rifle buttstock positionment on the shoulder. The MOLLE PALS slots permit the exit of the headset cable in the desired position, besides providing a safe system for anchoring the LPU during maritime missions.
The parts in contact with the body are equipped with a polyethylene closed cell foam padding, with a laser-cut circles pattern which, paired with the 3D air mesh fabric, enhances ventilation and reduces the build-up of humidity caused by perspiration in the pectoral area, thus improving comfort even in prolonged use.
The Open Top design of the plate pouches guarantees a perfect fit for all models of ballistic plates and also gives an easy access to the frontal part, letting the user operate easily on the MOLLE PALS while setting up the equipment.
The HAWK’s structure, entirely made out of LAHYCO composite fabric, was reinforced through the addition of Tegris® technopolymer inserts which enhance the stability of back panels and Phone and Nav boards, improving instruments’ readability and usability during movements and HAHO jumpings.
The Multi-Dot MOLLE PALS system by FROG.PRO®, present on all the plate carrier, besides pouches attachment, also allows for the addition of screws or shock cords for retention of tools such as PTT, chemlights or tourniquet.
The back is equipped with interface for the new patented U.LOK magnetic system, which introduces a new concept of modularity, allowing for instantaneous detachment and re-attachment of cargo pouches and back panels.
The ITW Nexus® QASM buckles and the Velcro® brand loop fastener front and back surfaces make it compatible with all cummerbunds and front panels available in the plate carriers category, as well as other brands parts (Ferro Concepts cummerbunds and placards, Spiritus Systems placards, etc.).
Our attention to detail, combined with personalized design, offer a unique product that reflects our commitment to “state of the art” military equipment.
