SAVANNAH, GA—July 12, 2012—Blue Force Gear® introduces MOLLEminus: MOLLE minus the weight, MOLLE minus the bulk, MOLLE minus the complexity. MOLLEminus is the thinnest, strongest, lightest modular load carriage standard on the market: half the thickness of a dime, over 4 times as abrasion resistant as air textured nylon and formed from a single piece of Blue Force Gear’s proprietary ULTRAcomp™.
“After working with ULTRAcomp for several months we realized there were a lot of benefits to be had by using it for the substrate of the MOLLE compatible platform, as well as the pouch backers,” said Stephen Hilliard, Blue Force Gear’s Director of Product Development.
Fully backward compatible with legacy MOLLE, MOLLEminus supports existing MOLLE and PALS compatible pouches including Blue Force Gear’s revolutionary Helium Whisper™ Attachment System. MOLLEminus plus Helium Whisper pouches provide the versatility of modular load carriage with less weight and bulk than sewn options.
RACKminus™ is the first MOLLEminus product that Blue Force Gear will unveil at the 2012 ADS Warrior Expo East. RACKminus is the simplest modular chest rig on the market and it weighs in at half the weight of a loaded M4 magazine. RACKminus can be mounted to most MOLLE armor carriers using two female repair buckles and two tee mounts. MOLLEminus mesh lined shoulder straps are free breathing, MOLLE compatible and provide routing for communications wires, hydration tubes or antennas.
Blue Force Gear’s proprietary high performance laminate, ULTRAcomp, far exceeds the military standard air textured nylon in tear and abrasion resistance. It has antifungal and hydrophobic features which reduces skin infection, odor, and weight gain when wet.
