The LV/119 SYSTEM is a group of products that work together to give end-users the ability to scale their equipment to their current needs. The fact that this is a cohesive system means that users can mix and match accessories in most cases. For example, one could take a COVERT Front or Rear Plate bag and use it with an OVERT Front and Rear Plate Bag. Users may also cross-pollinate cummerbunds, shoulder covers, and other parts that will be available. The SYSTEM encompasses many parts, some of which are currently available and some that are in development, such as Back Panels of various types, MOLLE cummerbunds, First Spear TUBES™ integrations, and different placards.
The LV/119 OVERT Rear Plate bag was built for those who need a scalable vest to wear in a multitude of environments ranging from Low Visibility to Direct Action. The OVERT shares the same profile as the COVER T plate bags while possessing additional features that make them more suitable for high-profile operations. The rear plate bag features full integration of Spiritus’s Recovery Handle™. The rear bag also features minimal MOLLE webbing and Zippers for future integrations with our Zip-on panels that will be available later this year.
Recovery Handle Integration:
Full integration of Spiritus’s Recovery Handle.
Note: the Recovery Handle™ is NOT included with this product.
Back Panel Support:
The rear bag also features minimal MOLLE webbing and Zippers for integrations with Spirirus’s Zip-on panels.
Note: The back panel integration is proprietary and will not support other brands of back panels.
Communications Cable Routing:
The Modern Warfighter and Law Enforcement Officer has a radio. To date, the majority of manufacturers have not taken end-user communications needs into their design considerations – Spiritus endeavors to break that paradigm. The OVERT offers open shoulders to facilitate commo cable routing inside the plate bags and over the shoulders. Cables may also be routed through the cummerbund access.
The cummerbund attachment is a proprietary system that allows for the use of all of Spiritus’s cummerbunds as well as allowing for a wide range of adjustments. The cummerbund attaches inside the plate bag, which is advantageous for a few reasons.
1. There is no external mounting that can get snagged or rip off when exiting vehicles in haste.
2. The design creates a smooth profile when worn underneath clothing.
3. Velcro is not utilized as an attachment to the rear plate bag. Velcro wears out over time and is a generally less-than-optimal attachment method when not supported in other ways. Velcro doesn’t handle weight well and it sticks to everything, especially cloth seats.
4. Every front plate bag comes standard with sewn loops on the sides for attaching First Spear TUBES™ for use with our tubes cummerbund.
The carrier was designed to fit United States Standard Issue SAPI cut plates, but it will fit other cuts as well as long as they fit within the specifications listed below. The bags were built to accommodate “thicker” plates, but they will not fit plates that do not fall within the measurements listed.
