Once again FROG.PRO exploited the potential of the Laser-Cut technology in order to design the new line of magazines and general purpose pouches, reaching unachieved goals of lightweight and performance.
The HK417-1-EOT (HK417-1-Elastic Open Top) is designed to carry Heckler & Koch HK417 20 Rnds magazines (7.62x51mm NATO) or its civilian counterpart MR308 (.308W).
The MIL-W-5664 or Woven type elasticized provides an inherently conforming pressure to the content reliable and repeatable. The Hypalon lined inner portion, in conjunction with the inward pressure given by the elasticized band, ensures a secure retention of the content into the pouch with superficial friction that is extremely effective with polymer magazines. Even though the HK417-1-EOT features 1/8″ shock cord and pull tab for additional retention in airborne employments and operations involving high speed vehicles, they can be easily removed and the pouch can be safely utilized without them. This open top pouch features a built-in, double side and eyelet-free anchor point design for shock cord, which, in combination with its semi-rigid construction, is particularly beneficial in the reinsertion of the magazine ensuring a snag-free operation.
The slotted drainage holes in the bottom part provide an additional MOLLE compatible attachment point, particularly useful for tourniquet, multitool or grenades pouches in heavy-load configurations.
The LAHYCO composite fabric construction provides an high degree of water repellency, which in wet environments and maritime applications translates to higher mobility and lighter weight.
The HK417-1-EOT can be mounted and effectively utilized on both belt and chest rig/plate carrier platform and allows an effective extraction from both positions, also for emergency reloads.
Our attention to detail, combined with personalized design, offer a unique product that reflects our commitment to “state of the art” military equipment.
