The LV/119 System:
The LV/119 SYSTEM is a family 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 end-users are able to 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 cross pollinate cummerbunds, shoulder covers, and other pieces of the system. The SYSTEM encompasses many parts, some of which are currently available and some that are in development. These include Back Panels of various types, MOLLE cummerbunds, First Spear TUBES™ integrations, and different placards.
Over The Beach Operations:
Over The Beach Operations are some of the most challenging and miserable operations that service members must endure. Spiritus Systems is proud to bring a suite of products that directly results in improved load carriage and soldier survival during sea borne operations. The OTB product line is built with a mesh material, which allows for quick drainage of water and sea borne debris such a sand. OTB products will dry faster after exiting the water and will drain water faster and more efficiently as well. The mesh also makes the products simple to clean using fresh water after conducting operations in salt environments.
The Over The Beach (OTB) OVERT shares the same profile as the COVERT and OVERT plate bags but with modifications that make it more suitable for seaborne operations. Most noticeable the bags are made primarily of a hydrophobic mesh material. The front bag features a 3 Row / 4 Column MOLLE field that doubles as a 6” x 3” Velcro Field. This may be used to attach End User Devices (EUDs), such as those made by KAGWERKS or Juggernaut Defense. The Velcro may be used to mount placards, patches, and IR identifiers. The MOLLE can also be used to mount administrative pouches, frag grenade pouches, or Personal Floatation Devices. Every front plate bag comes standard with sewn loops on the sides for attaching First Spear TUBES™ for use with Spiritus’s MOLLE TUBES™ Cummerbund.
Placard and Chest Rig Integration:
All LV/119 Plate Bags offer placard and chest rig integration via removable 1-Inch ITW NEXUS Buckles. These clips are removable, allowing users to reduce the signature of the plate bag if it is being worn under a cover shirt or being utilized in a low-profile role. The OTB series of products offers a specific OTB Placard that can button into the front bag for added security when jumping into the water. The OTB plate bag is still compatible with Spiritus’s normal placard offerings as well as the Micro Fight Chest Rig Chassis.
Push To Talk Support:
Each OVERT front plate bag comes standard with a PTT/Porkchop Loop on either side.
Communication 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 in to their design considerations – Spiritus endeavors to break that paradigm. The OVERT front bag offers open shoulders to facilitate commo cable routing inside the plate bags and over the shoulders. It also offers small routing points by the 1-Inch ITW NEXUS buckles on the chest – easily accommodating PTT cable routing.
