Bridger™ (MOLLE Cover for Tubes™ Cummerbunds)
Bridger™ (MOLLE Cover for Tubes™ Cummerbunds)

In development and testing for 2 years, the Raine Bridger™ (MOLLE Cover for Tubes™ Cummerbunds) gives you back the MOLLE real-estate lost from using FirstSpear® Tubes™ quick release hardware on a plate carrier and body armor vest (Bridges the Gap). 

The Bridger™ is compatible with all FirstSpear® platforms, does not interfere with the Tubes™ quick release function, and securely attaches to Tubes™ cummerbunds like a second skin.

 What are those two legs for? 

  • The Legs keep the Bridger™ from folding backward.
  • They help secure the Bridger™ to the cummerbund like a second skin.
  • Pouches can be mounted over the legs.
  • The legs do not limit or interfere with the mounting of MOLLE compatible gear to the cummerbund.

The Cinches have built-in tunnels at the ends to secure the MOLLE Cover legs and are sewn to a strap of Velcro® Onewrap® that is secured to the inside of the cummerbund through a MOLLE laser cut slit. 

  • The Cinches keep the legs from moving off the cummerbund and digging into the wearer's ribs.
  • MOLLE pouches can be mounted over the Cinches and they do not limit or interfere with the attachment of MOLLE compatible gear to the cummerbund.
