I fought myself for a few minutes as to if I wanted the TUBES, or if I just wanted to not waste any more time or money on pouches, and just get the advanced elastic....my friends convinced me to go TUBES, and holy crap am I glad I did. Assembly was easy, and they are on and off in seconds. No noise, easy attachment of side armor panels and any other MOLLE/MALICE attachment you want. Well worth the extra cash, and effort

Attachment. The LV Series of vests hosts an attachment system like no other. This system allows for maximum adjustment and stability. This cummerbund will NOT sag when it is fully loaded unlike velcro-attached cummerbunds.
The Cummerbund come with all parts and pieces necessary to attach to an Overt carrier. It includes the cummerbund, the TUBE integrator for the vest as well as the shockcord required to attach the cummerbund to the rear plate bag.
The cummerbund comes in two sizes: Size 1 and Size 2, each offering up to 14 inches of total adjustment. This allows for a proper fitment for all body types.
To figure our appropriate sizing, take measurement of the waist at the belly button. When measuring, users should dress as they would while actually wearing the carrier. For example, if the user is operating in arctic environments, they should be wearing cold weather equipment when measuring.
Size 1: 28" to 42"
Size 2: 40" to 54"
If your waist measurement is 42", we suggest going up to the Size 2 cummerbund.

It’s very convenient and It works on my JPC just fine
It’s pretty cut and dry here boys. FirstSpear Tube Kit fitted on a skeletonized cummerbund. Works as described. I have mine mounted on a Ferro Concepts Slickster. I have oringinally used the molle back panel as the mounting solution but I’m since upgraded to a larger 5x8 Velcro panel that I have punched holes into and used a geometric kit to reinforce. It worked like a charm. The possibilities are endless here. Pro: Durable, Lightweight Cons: Proprietary mounting design is flimsy on other platforms since it’s not designed for them. A Velcro panel adapter would be magnificent.
Tubes are amazing. Not a fan of skeletal style cummerbunds, but this is the best one I have used.
Really well made cummerbund, the only thing that was a pain was installing the male end of the first spear tubes to the front plate bag, But once on it ain’t going anywhere. Overall really solid and would highly recommend.
