The Adaptive Cummerbund is the next step in the FirstSpear system approach. Up to now, you’ve been able to exchange front panels for several carriers. Now, you can take full advantage of their Tubes technology. Tubes are located at both front and rear of the cummerbund meaning you can easily swap them out, as well as front and rear panels. It is currently available in the “land” style with loop Velcro on the body side for Ragnar pockets, as well as a TFSS maritime flotation cummerbund specifically designed for combat swimmers, and/or maritime airborne operations personnel. The TFSS cummerbund has been designed and tested for use during egress from a submerged structure of any type, providing 45lbs of positive flotation in seawater at a depth of 33 ft, 57lbs of positive flotation at a depth of 15 ft and 80lbs of flotation on the surface, allowing the wearer a maximum load-out of equipment. Soft Armor Ballistic Inserts complying with NIJ Category IIIA.06 or specific Military Specification requirements are available from FirstSpear for an additional fee. This video will bring it all together. These Adaptive Cummerbunds are just the beginning. Look for FIrstSpear to add purpose built sections for the Adaptive Cummerbund as well as integration of other mission essential elements. Available in Black, Ranger Green, Multicam, and Coyote

The original transitional MultiCam camouflage served a very precious role for concealment in Afghanistan where varied terrain provided a problem in “blending in” with a environment specific camouflage pattern. There was although the request of a wider variety of more specific patterns of camouflages. The answer was the release of a “family” of four new types of MultiCam, which are designed to cover Arid, Tropic, and Alpine terrains. They have also released a MultiCam Black pattern specific to law enforcement.
One of the key points of MultiCam is the fact that it allows the individual on the field to move within diffrent enviroments without being easily detected. By adding these four new variants (mainly “Arid” and “Tropical”) they have enhanced the capability of the single operator, allowing a more accurate and mission specific piece of gear, while keeping the main feature of the MultiCam Pattern.
MultiCam Alpine (Snow Covered Environment)
MultiCam Arid (Open Desert Sand and Rock Terrain)
MultiCam Tropical (Lush Jungle Environment)
MultiCam Black (Law Enforcement Identification)
