The LinkIt™ can provide many solutions. The original design intent was to stabilize chest rigs when mounting to plate carriers. The unsecured portions of the chest rig will often “flop” resulting in noise and reduced movement efficiency. It was quickly discovered by designers that the LinkIt™ could also be used (in many cases) to completely take the place of a plate carrier’s cummerbund system. Offering the user a low profile, low weight, super breathable securing method. Early versions of the LinkIt have been produced by Mission Spec on a custom request basis for many years. It was decided in 2022 to standardize the design and make it available as a standard Mission Spec product.

Q: How tight should the LinkIt™ be when using it to secure my plate carrier as a cummerbund replacement?
A: Generally, with any cummerbund on a plate carrier you want it as tight as it can be without restricting your breathing. You should be able to take an unrestricted deep breath. Use this same method when determining how tight your LinkIt™ should be installed.

Q: My LinkIt™ has to long of a “tail” of elastic shock cord. What do I do with it?
A: You have 2 options. After the Cordloc and overhand knot you can either wrap up the remaining shock cord and stow it inside the PALS/MOLLE grid or cut off the remaining portion and heat sear the edges to prevent fraying.

Q: What plate carriers are the LinkIt™ compatible with?
A: This is a difficult question as there are so many. You have 100% compatibility with Mission Spec EC2 and AC2 plate carriers. Any other carrier will work as long as it has a PALS grid on the rear plate bag (for replacing the cummerbund) or on the existing cummerbund (for securing and stabilizing a front mounted chest rig).

Q: What if I need to vertically secure my chest rig to the front plate bag but my plate carrier doesn’t have these built in provisions?
A: This is the perfect job for our RigIt™ Kit.
