This whole cummerbund system that Spiritus has is magic. Just plain magic. It so stupidly simple, yet so comfortable and quick to put on, it’s got me wearing my carrier while working out and other places because it’s just so easy to don and doff. I’ve used this placard with PMAGs and Stribog mags and worked out, jumped around, etc, things stay where they should and are close to the chest for keeping things streamlined. I used to want to have all the things on all the surfaces, then I tried using that setup and moving about...it was a hot mess. This placard and cummerbund setup with the covert play bags? Forget about it, it’s a no-brainer. So much more useful and comfortable.
The LV Placard was designed to give users superior retention of magazines and other mission critical equipment. The usage of elastic creates form fitting cells that can hold a variety different items. The stretchy nature of elastic allows it to expand to accommodate large or oddly shaped pieces of equipment. Unlike other elastic pouches on the market, we utilize webbing at the base of the system instead of sewing it completely shut. This allows for maximum flex and articulation and assists in eliminating the "birthing" effect (this is where items begin to be pushed out of the pouch because the elastic tapers at the bottom). We have also added laminate loops on the outside of each cell to allow for the attachment of retention loops or to allow you to pull the pouch open to insert items more easily. The back of the placard is fully lined with hard loop velcro for a secure fitment to your plate carrier.
The LV Placard is more than just a placard. Each corner has a small loop of 1" webbing. This webbing is used to attach the included ITW Nexus hardware, turning your placard into a Nano sized chest rig. The LVP is compatible with many other accessories listed below:
A Christmas present that was loved!
If you had a good experience with BFG 10 Speed, you'll have an even better one with this.
I got this for a training while I wait for the micro fight chest rig chassis to get restocked. This placard is great with is fantastic retention, especially when used with magpul magazines. It is a very high quality elastic that holds onto the mags very well, that you really don't need to strap them in with further retention. At least not when it's new. Tip: leave mags in the elastic for a few days, so the openings conform to the mags. This will allow easier indexing. Also train with them. The mags are more resistant to remove (a good thing), so your muscle memory needs to be on point.
Outstanding build quality as always, keeps a low profile when empty and allows easy access to mags when in use. Material feels like it will last for a long while. 10/10 would recommend to others.
Solid piece of gear, low profile and high quality material. Like others have said, leave mags in for a bit to form the shape.
This is the perfect option for when I want to run a lower profile front. Retention is great, but I suggest leaving mags in it so it can form to the shape. Bungees are easily added for extra retention if needed. The clips allow you to easily swap between setups. It’s spiritus, so you know that you’re getting quality.
I wanted to run an “everything you need, nothing you don’t” type setup, so I opted for this instead of a micro fight. I had never used elastic retention before but I couldn’t be happier, the mags are super secure but still easy to get out quickly, I can’t recommend this enough.
Great retention, low profile, and the craftsmanship is unmatched.
This is spiritus systems. You’re not getting anything less then quality. Buy without hesitation. There is a reason you always see stuff on her out of stock
This product is outstanding. I switch between running AK and AR platforms. This allows me to run both with no absolutely problems. Outside of magazines, this also holds plenty of items when paired with the bungee retention kit. I was keeping a close eye for wear and tear from an AK steel lug. After a few months of work and two-gun matches, I have seen zero problems with it. If you're looking for a slim set up that'll allow you to run different magazines for different systems, then this is the product for you.
Got mine in CB to replace a low profile placard from Mayflower that I've had for years. Holds mags securely and is fairly easy to reindex. Works well with my other kit and integrates with my Haley flatpack for a minimalist patrol rig. Conceals nice under bulkier winter clothing.
