PLATATAC HW Quad Shingle
- More Information
The Platatac HW Quad Shingle is an ultra-lightweight, MOLLE compatible, durable open-top magazine panel that sits flat and securely carries up to four AR/M4 polymer or metal 5.56 30 round magazines. The shingle attaches via four MOLLE straps which are part of the one-piece back that is laser cut with precision out of Multicam pattern Blueforce gear Ultracomp® fabric. The front is another piece of laser-cut Ultracomp in a PALS grid to allow MOLLE compatible pouches to be attached to the front. It features offset slits in the centre to attach single row pouches such as the HW Pistol mag Pouch. The HW Quad Shingle keeps mags stowed in their own compartment held in with shock cord for greater security for each magazine. The sewn Ultracomp® tabs can be placed at the corners of the magazines to ensure a fast and consistent draw reducing time on magazine changes.

Blue Force Gear's proprietary high-performance laminate, ULTRAcomp®, far exceeds the military standard air textured nylon in tear and abrasion resistance. Its hydrophobic features allow products to stay dry and light, whereas air textured nylon retains water and gets even heavier when wet. Blue Force Gear has attained the perfect blend of art and science to create a truly unique material - ULTRAcomp®. ULTRAcomp® combines the properties of a rubber-based laminate - resistance to tear, abrasion, water, bacteria and fungus - and added a Cordura® fabric facing for colour or pattern and reduced IR signature. This is a case where the sum is greater than its parts. The combined strength of the two materials becoming one allows us to push the limits on weight savings while exceeding established standards of strength and durability.
