X Back Molle Aircrew Life Vest

X Back Molle Aircrew Vest

The X-Back Molle Air Crew Vest is a newly configured, lightweight crew vest that is a comfortable and durable for constant wear. The X-Back has a unique, proprietary cross back strap with room to attach all of your accessories. This vest has been specifically designed for constant wear in the seated position in your helicopter or fixed wing aircraft.

The MOLLE System

The MOLLE (Modular Lightweight Load-Carrying Equipment) system lets you customize your vest with the accessories you need during flight. Accessories are located to the sides rather than midsection allowing more room for shoulder and lap belts, for added comfort when seated. Weight is evenly distributed on the shoulders and off the neck to reduce interference with your helmet and fatigue whilst greatly increasing comfort for the wearer.

The simple reliable dual breakaway design provides immediate inflation when activated (from both sides of the jacket) and can easily be re-closed if needed. Backup oral inflation tubes are conveniently located on either side of the vest and easily reached through the side access flaps.
