Over The Beach Operations are some of the most challenging and miserable operations that service members must endure. We are 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 LV/ Side Armor Bags - Over The Beach (OTB)
The LV/ Side Armor Bags are modular in design and allow for the use of hard armor plates, soft armor inserts (with the addition of one of our Side Armor Bag Caps™), or both hard and soft armor at the same time.
The bags were built with an offset MOLLE configuration which allows the user to wear the plates as far forward on the cummerbund as possible. Wearing your side armor as far forward allows for side plate to front plate contact, and closes a small gap in protection left over by traditional side armor systems currently on the market. Side Armor Bags are compatible with MOLLE cummerbunds and will not work with elastic cummerbunds.
The OTB model of the LV/ Side Armor Bags are made with a mesh material, which allows for quick drainage of water and sea borne debris such a sand. They are also easily cleaned with fresh water after conducting operations in salt water.
Plate Fitment: The LV/ Side Armor Bags are built with stretch materials to accommodate 6 x 6 inch hard armor plates up to 1 inch thick in a stand alone configuration. The use of soft armor inserts require the addition of our Side Armor Bag Caps™ which can then accommodate 5" x 7" to 5"x 14" rectangular soft armor inserts.
