The Viking Patrol Harness (VPH) was developed with direct input from FirstSpear Professional Users who specialize and are recognized experts in Extreme Cold Weather Operations in Mountainous Terrain. The features, fit, materials, and finish of the VPH all reflect multiple evolutions of development which maximized performance. It is designed to perform in the most demanding conditions.
The VPH features 3 fixed full flapped magazine pockets each capable of holding one or two 30-round 5.56 magazines and a fixed radio pouch that holds radios of similar size to the AN/PRC-148 MBITR. Modular 6/12 Panels on each side will accept the complete line of FirstSpear pockets as well as any older pockets using a MOLLE style PALS compatible attachment system.
The Viking Patrol Harness comes with an Arctic Canteen Pocket and a Cold Weather General Purpose pocket with 2 External Pistol Magazine Pockets. The VPH has longer than usual shoulder and back straps to secure it over multiple layers of clothing and is available in the ATACS ATX pattern. All materials and hardware for this harness are Mil-Spec or better and are resistant to Infrared Visual Augmentation Systems.
