A few weeks ago, we received an email from a police officer in the UK, who had suffered from intense back pains at work for many years. He wrote to tell us how the Zero G plates and their weight distribution system have allowed him come home from a 12-hour duty shift pain free.
“I have had a few problems with my back over the years, and on visiting an osteopath, it appears that my problems all stem from deferred pain from my hips.
This pain was, it appears, due to the pressure placed onto my hips by my equipment belt which as you will know, holds a lot of heavy equipment. The Zero G carbon fibre plates have eased a lot of the pressure by dispersing it over a wider area. This is also helped by the contoured shaping of the plates which replicates the shape of the hip / waist area.
I’m sure I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know as I’m guessing this was the whole point of the invention, however, I have tried two different back support / protectors in the past and none of them have ever really come up to scratch due to their bulky but flimsy design. The strong but light material the 5.11 plates are made of makes you forget at times that they are even there. The only time I was reminded that I was wearing them was at the end of each day when I realised that I had suffered no back pain during my 12 hour shift.”
The Sierra Bravo Belt kit is constructed from ultra-strong 1680D nylon fabric and has a waterproof treatment that protects against rain and moisture, ensuring all-weather reliability. It integrates with MOLLE web gear and the range of Sierra Bravo Pouches. The belt kit is made up of the belt, an inner belt (which attaches to the outer belt with Hook and loop to keep it secure) and 4 individual Belt keepers.
The Range of Pouches include Baton, Radio, Spray, Cuff, Torch holder, Double Pistol and Latex Glove Pouch all made in the 1680D Nylon for abrasion resistance.
In combination with our Zero G Plates, the tough and adaptable Sierra Bravo Duty Belt Kit is the perfect kit. With its improved ergonomics, it offers an extremely comfortable set up in the most demanding operations.
