Modułowy System Oporządzenia Służb Mundurowych SCOLOPENDRA

The modular system of the uniformed services of SCOLOPENDRA

The system consists of elements compatible with the MOLLE / PALS system. It is sewn in such a way that you can freely combine separate elements. The biggest role in the system is played by modularity of elements, thanks to which we can use its wide application and adapt the equipment according to the preferences depending on the task being performed.

The elements can be used to build small or large Chest Rigs, full vests and drop legs. Suspension points play a key role, as they allow you to fasten your panels e.g. from a Plate Carrier vest and in combination with harnesses to create a Chest Rig. Similarly, if you have a panel and suspension points, you can create drop legs. The entire system is designed to fit in every possible configuration with Plate Carrier vests.

To sum up, having a Plate Carrier vest, harness and relevant suspension points , the customer really already has in the whole set: tactical vest, drop legs, Chest Rig in various configurations (a complete). Enriching the set with additional pouches and other equipment allows you to create further configurations depending on the task being performed.

System "Loop In Eye"

Eyelets in the Scolopendra System are our next “Loop and Eye” system. The L&E system allows you to pull shockcord through any eyelets, and thus you can attach any object. The “Loop and Eye” system is made of double, anti-reflective and mat buttons, which were made with a special design for us to order.

The LOOP AND EYE system was created with a view to moving additional equipment. It is dedicated primarily to the products of the SCOLOPENDRA System, but also can be found in other products of offerts, for example pouches or waist pack. The biggest role in the system is played by the possibility of any interlacing of shockcord, thanks to which we can use a wide apply and adoption the equipment as desired depending on the task being performed.

Panels of Scolopendra System

Panels, which consist of two or three rows of webbings, stitched every four centimeters according to the MOLLE / PALS system. In combination with harnesses, they can co-create Chest Rig or full extended vests. Scolopendra System panels can be combined in any way and create various configurations using buckles, triglides or shockcords with a cordlock. For convenience, they can also be combined with each other in the middle, which allows you to easily unbutton the vest.

Standard panels work well as front and back parts, as well as the sides in Plate Carrier vests. They are also used to build Chest Rigs. They also work well for creating drop legs. In turn, the Airy series panels are mainly intended for the sides of tactical vests. Thanks to them, the vest becomes lighter, which is considered a plus, however, due to their construction, you can not carry too much gear on the sides of the vest. For users who prefer to build the sides of the vest with additional pouches, we recommend using full panels.

Standard panels are made of original Cordura and polyamide or jacquard webbings. From the inside, the standard panels are lined with user-friendly Velcro® velor, which makes it possible to attach dedicated pouches (internal Scolopendra pouches), a system of carrying straps (suspension points) or waist pack (with used a kidney panel). Airy panels, in turn, are made of polyamide or jacquard webbings, sewn on a laminate, stiffened on the side parts. The stiffening is to prevent unwanted bending of the panel.

These harnesses can be made with side’s hydration handles. From the inside, they are lined with user-friendly Velcro velor. The harnesses have a longitudinal webbing stitched every 4 cm, to which we can mount a chest strap, or at the bottom of the buckle, e.g. QASM, Split-Bar by NEXUS, Angry Hook of our production, etc. The design of our harnesses allows the use of any buckle. The buckles in our offer are demountable. In turn, XL harnesses are made of Cordura, polyamide or jacquard webbings and Velcro velor. They come in three sizes: 6 cm, 7 cm, 8 cm.

Appropriate hydrations handles in harnesses will allow us to segregate cables or the hydration system. Back: Sewn 3 rows of 4 stitching allow you to attach e.g. hydration backpacks. The back panel can be connected with straps in the VEL-LOCK system or e.g. a hydration pocket.

Fastening systems

Panels with harnesses can be combined in any way, either with buckles, a shockcord, or mounting webbings (suspension points). The buckles in our offer are fully demountable, which allows for trouble-free replacement of buckles in the event of their breakage. Fastenings with a shockcord are most often used when connecting side panels with the back’s of a vest. This allows you to freely adjust the vest for more clothes. Suspension points are used as a variety of joining methods, both in Chest Rigs, vests and drop legs. They are made of polyamide or jacquard webbings and Velcro velor / mushroom. The VEL-LOC system was estimated to be definitely stronger than when using a standard hook-and-loop velcro.

Buckles

The buckles are properly cut (split-bar), thanks to which they can be freely assembled and disassembled.

Webbings

The webbings that support the entire system are connected by a patented Velcro and mushroom type Velcro® system (VEL-LOCK). The combined mushroom and velor tape is much stronger than the standard hook / loop velcro, while being about 3x thinner, which makes it more convenient to use.

Pouches of Scolopendra System

Insert pouches (SCOLO) dedicated Scolopendra System, we are mounting from the inside of the front panel of the vest by sealing them, using the mushroom / velor option. One side of the pouch (adhering “to the body”), is lined with a user-friendly velor, compared to the standard velcro loop. The other side (mounting side, which is attached to the panel) is covered with a Velcro mushroom. The pouches with a bungee top against falling out of magazines. Panel pouches are designed as standard for magazines arranged in one row (several magazines next to each other) in connection with the location of the pouch under the vest. The option of creating pouches with magazines in two rows (one above the other) is excluded for the convenience of the user.

Thanks to the easy disassembly of the pouches, they can be removed at any time, or replaced with other elements depending on the need.

Susspension points

Suspension points used to connect harnesses with panels, panels with a vest, create drop legs, connect harnesses with tactical belts, or connect panels together. The Scolopendra system, due to its modularity, allows you to choose different types of suspension points, creating several options from one element, e.g. having panels in a tactical vest, after applying the appropriate suspension points and connecting with harnesses, you can get a Chest Rig. Similarly, if you have a panel and appropriate suspension points, you can assemble the drop legs.

Examples of suspension points:

Suspension point triglide 1 inch – for example, used at the back of the harnesses to mount a strap connecting the harnesses to the panels.

Suspension point with buckle 1 inch – webbing with velcro, finished with a buckle. Used for an additional suspension point at the panels.
