The DELF Belt !

Concept Becomes Reality !

Here is one hell of a Belt kit ! I'm sure you will agree ,with so many features we had to take photos of them all other wise it would be a very long list.
A very detailed drawing was submitted by the customer detailing his exact requirements ,each one was meticulously thought out and discussed with us to identify the best solution to the problem.
The customer could not achieve this with his issue setup so came to us for a custom solution.
(You may be thinking that was the hard work done for us ! Oh how your wrong :)

We where more than happy to help solve his problems as custom “One Off’s”  is what we like!
The customer also sent us some images of his crippling encounter with grass seeds! These as you can see got stuck  in the spacer mesh that lined his civi’ walking shoes.
He did not want the usual mesh lining on the yoke as he didn’t want to have the same debilitating problem while crawling through undergrowth in his new webbing.

Our solution was simple ,we mealy lined the yoke in a 4oz waterproof nylon  
Another major detail was wearing the belt kit on the hips and having the maximum space at the front of the body so when lying in the prone you can access all your pouches this positioning on the hips also allows for full leg articulation for kneeling and running .

Conversely the customer  wanted the back to be as free as possible allowing for a Bergen when tabbing  and to be able to  quickly jump into a vehicle and drive it without taking off his webbing .

This belt then becomes more of a split front chest rig while driving and allows access to all the pouches while in a seated position.
A Velcro tab keeps all the excess webbing neat and out the way of the steering wheel.

Next up was ammo pouch issues ,triple ammo pouches are fine when all 3 are in there snug but as soon as you remove one and place it on the rifle you  have 2 rattling around it the pouch it becomes rather annoying after a while.
Our solution was a simple webbing strap and ladder lock buckle ,elastic was discussed but the long life of the webbing won through over the shorter life span of elastic.
shown with 3 mags in pouch
 A single Mag held firmly in place synched up with the webbing strap.

On the ammo side a large 5inch wide pouch was requested for times when larger items need carrying ,this could pose a problem when only carrying a water bottle in it ,so an internal  divider was requested to be fitted this can be fitted in 2 positions via velcro on the front edge of the pouch , this will then  take up the space around the bottle and hold it firmly in the pouch . This creates a small area for other items to be stored MO.L.L.E  loops where provided to add some security should a speed loader or KFS be fitted inside the pouch.

Here are some other angles that are pretty self explanatory to give you a feel for the other features not spoken about above .

large Pack On Sale Now !


A brand Mini Bergen/Day sack that was field tested recently to extremes and has passed with flying colours....

This has been designed with body armour in mind. Extra long ergonomic shoulder straps are  approx 60cm (24") in length and 7cm (2.5") wide and lined with spacer fabric which helps spread the load evenly .

These lengths allow it to be worn over some the bulkiest armour out today.

The back panel is left plain a free from air mesh due to the user wearing armour.

Removable sternum strap is fitted and will help keep the pack comfortable across the shoulders with heavy loads.

A classic design on steroids that's super tough. Awesome when you want to carry Bergen size loads without overloading your traditional 'bulging' day sack! The Pack features a draw cord snow chute with opening for bladder tubes or antenna.

Key design features are the very short back but wider stance (18"x 13" X12") (46cm x 33cm x 350cm )allowing massive load carrying but greater head clearance etc. This means you can lay in the prone position quickly without removing it or the pack hanging off you as run if worn on one shoulder!

Another new feature is the simplified and practical "reversed" lid straps which if left unsecured will hang to the base but not drag round your ankles in the mud like a traditional pack, it also makes locating the straps in the dark easy!

Internally, the back system has a removable HDPE frame that helps spread the load . Inside also has an area to hols a 3 ltr bladder. On the outside the pack also features loops to allow a 50mm waist belt to be attached if required (available as part of the Accessories Pack).

As mentioned earlier, I personally field tested this pack fully loaded and felt the pack was part of me, it spread the load evenly and I didn't need to waste time thinking of how best to pack it, I could just 'load and forget'.

The M.O.L.L.E. on the front, lid and sides of the pack allow for multiple combinations of external pockets.

As usual we can make this in DPM, Multicam and add or delete any features you require (some mods may cost extra).
