The Arktis M610 is a modular "chest rig" vest. Looping throughout enables pouches to be fitted via MOLLE and / or ALICE systems. Allowing the vest to transport a wide range of load-outs (magazines, grenades or other equipment). It is made of 1000 denier heavy-duty nylon fabric with a waterrepllent (DWR) finish.
The modular equipment carrier is entirely made in Europe from IR treated NATO green materials. It can be used in all climates, in all weather conditions and in all regions.
THE M610 CONSISTS OF 3 PARTS :
Main Body: The vest allows for the fixation of pouches via MOLLE or ALICE systems. It has 14 to 16 wide MOLLE loops for attaching a wide array of equipment. An internal pocket stores the pectoral panel when not in use. This can also be used to store documents & maps etc.
Removable Pectoral Panel : The expandable panel includes an extra 3 rows of MOLLE looping. When this panel is unfolded it can also support ballistic plates. The panel is secured to the shoulder straps using the D-ring attachment points.
A harness : The harness is fully adjustable to fit all chest sizes. It is comprised of two padded shoulder straps and an adjustable belt. Each strap has two elastic bands, two rows of MOLLE looping and two D-rings to attach various accessories (hydration pipe, radio handset, compass / strobe pouch, etc.).
THE STRAPS CAN BE WORN IN TWO WAYS
- Crossed in the back (X harness).
- Not crossed but secured by a removable strap (provided) at the shoulder blades (harness H).
The straps and belt is fixed by quick release clips & has four MOLLE loops. The straps and waistband have adjustable straps. Hook and loop tabs allow for excess webbing from the adjustment straps to be tidied away neatly & minimise snagging.
