These also make putting on the carrier much more convenient when you are in a hurry. The secret sauce behind the SMC is literally in the back. YKK Zippers and webbing on the back panel are designed for attaching any one of the new SMC zippered back panels, so you can specifically tailor your carrier for the mission ahead. All these panels are compatible with SOCOM issued carriers with zippered back panel systems. View the whole line in the SMC Back Panel collection.
As for the SMC carrier, breathable mesh is built into the cummerbund and inside faces of the carrier body for enhanced comfort. Interior padding enclosed in tweave gives the wearer additional comfort and air channels to wick away moisture. There are six rows of MOLLE/PALS style webbing with built in matching loop material on the top three rows for the option of attaching patches or ID panels. Laser cut laminate nylon gives you all the modularity of traditional MOLLE webbing at a significant reduction in weight while remaining strong and water/chemical resistant. Longevity is also increased as cut edges do not fray after they are heat sealed with the laser.
