CRYE COBRA D-RING MOLLE SHOOTERS BELT
Introduction: Crye Cobra D-Ring MOLLE Shooters Belt was used by a Sharpshooter in the light role environment during a 7-day exercise in Estonia with temperatures of -17 degrees Celsius.
Belt Set Up: Attached to the belt was two sharpshooter magazine poches, a small first aid pouch and two small utility pouches. The user deemed these were easy to fit and did not shift on the belt.
Comfort and Feel:
The overall fitting of the belt was comfortable throughout. The Velcro adjustment made it simple to adjust to size and did not lessen through the exercise. However, due to the narrowness of the belt, the magazine pouch did tend to rub on the soldier’s thigh whilst patrolling over long distances through deep snow. The quick release buckle proved easy to operate when taking the belt on and off.
Operational effectiveness: The low profile of the belt made it easy for the operator to move around the battlefield. The was especially noticeable when operating in the trenches, built up areas and forests. The lack of storage capability meant that the operator did have to store more of his items in a pack and could not operate from his belt kit alone for a substantial duration of time.
Overall: The Crye Cobra D-Ring MOLLE Shooters Belt was a comfortable and easy to use. It was durable and allowed the operator to fight effectively whilst maintaining a low profile. However, it did prove uncomfortable whilst tabbing for long durations.
