The Armored Republic Cummerbund Kit is designed to add storage and side armor capability to plate carriers.
The Cummerbund Kit from Armored Republic integrates seamlessly with plate carriers that have a flap pocket on the backside and Velcro on the front. The kit consists of two components: the front admin flap and the cummerbund itself.
The front flap is optional and only needed for carriers that do not have a cummerbund flap. For carriers that have a cummerbund flap, the cummerbund is the only needed item.
The cummerbund kit can work with most other plate carriers on the market.
