    Quality is great just a bit too bulky for me. I prefer the 2 band cummerbund

    Love it, it’s far superior to the belt and buckle style that came with my HRT plate carrier in fitting the carrier to my body as well as donning and doffing.

    I put this on a 5.11 TacTec plate carrier. Very easy to install and extremely comfortable. Great way to add MOLLE webbing and an option for soft side body armor. I highly recommend adding this cummerbund to your plate carrier!

    Just bought a RAC plate carrier and the quick release cummerbund. I wear a carrier on a pretty much daily basis for work and couldn’t be happier with this one. The carrier/cummerbund are solid. The quick release cummerbund is super convenient and makes putting the carrier on and taking it off fast and efficient. Everything I’ve purchased from HRT is top notch quality and is super comfortable and versatile. HRT knocked it out of the park.

    I would just order this alongside your carrier. It’s such a simple and yet very necessary addition. Removing the carrier is significantly easier and quicker than the buckles. Putting it on takes some practice to line up the two ends, but it’s so worth the price. The extra Molle space is amazing as well. Highly recommended.

    Very skinny guy here – The RAC Carrier and the 3 Band Cummerbund fit me perfectly. If you’re a tall & skinny boi scrambling throughout the web right now deciding on what you want to purchase without having to fear if it will actually fit when it comes in – Get HRT. This gear fits me (155lbs at 6’2) perfectly and comfortably

    The bungee cord at the back might need to be slightly longer (e.g. 1″ or 2″?) to allow more ease of setup, especially when trying to tie the knot to keep things in place. I would’ve preferred velcro, to be completely honest, as it would’ve made not only the installation process a lot faster, smoother, and easier, but also dealing with adjustments/fitting after the fact. I don’t the “advantage” on that point.

    The armor inserts appear to be for soft side armor only. Perhaps there’s an ability to mount pockets for hard armor side plates, but if so, it seems you’d have to find something to attach onto this.

    Also, I’m always concerned about plastic on gear. (The quick-release plate carrier also has a plastic buckle on the right shoulder.) Just falling to the ground at the wrong angle might be enough to break it and then the rest of the carrier is going to swing around b/c it’s not locked into place.

    Finally, it can be difficult to attach the cummerbund buckles when you intend to have the carrier tight to your body. I guess that’s why it’s called “quick-release” and not “quick-buckle-up”.

    This is an AWESOME upgrade! Makes getting into and out of the plate carrier significantly easier. I personally don’t like having to actuate the velcro every time since even the good name brand stuff (and this is good stuff) will loose it’s sticky over time. This eliminates that concern as well as being EXACTLY in the same position every time you put it on, no worrying about exact placement of the velcro tab. Easy enough to learn to snap it back, I can’t do it without looking, but it’s not hard to get it lined up.

    Took getting used to but makes me wish I bought a quick release plate carrier! This saves my velcro and ears every time I put my kit on. Removal takes seconds and it leaves my cummerbund right where I left it every time. Thicker material than factory, highly recommend to anyone viewing this companies product. Will be back for more.

    A great addon to the RAC/HRAC systems. It takes some time to get the trick down with the quick release but with some practice its way better than the traditional cummerbunds.

    Now for starters I’m not giving it a 3 because it was utter shit, it’s build really well and the QD is smooth and easy enough to use/reattach(though it can be a bit if a pain but that seems to be a universal issue with tubular QDs)
    My issues ultimately came from the overall fit, I just couldn’t get it how I like it. It was either way too tight or just too loose for my liking. And even when it was loose if you went to throw on winter training gear it became too tight again so there was just no winning for me. I ultimately returned it but I’d never say it was a bad product to not buy it

    The quality is excellent, but the workings of the buckle are not intuitive and took a while to figure out. I also find the buckle hard to reach while attempting to latch/unlatch the cummerbund while wearing the fully assembled plate carrier w/accessories.

    Doffing is super easy, but donning can be somewhat cumbersome because you have to align the top and bottom of the clips before locking it in.

    Wish they came with longer shock cord to attach it to the carrier, but it’s plenty for the average size folk.

    The attachment points in the back seemed unnecessarily complicated, but this is still one of the best cummerbunds. It comes with built in padding and is very durable. The QD feature is great but not very ideal for running pouches or whatever near the QD, as it causes problems when attaching.

    Haven’t modified my vest to mount this yet. 5” wide top-to-bottom; I have a 4” cummerbund currently. Well made though. Looking forward to getting some stuff moved from elsewhere onto this to streamline my daily wear duty vest. Only dropped a star because of my own laziness in getting it into use so I can’t verify it’s as good as it seems yet.

    I purchased to replace the two row cummerbund. As of today, I have only used it once since purchasing. It is on my off duty tact vest I keep in my truck at all times. It is comfortable, but I wish it came in a two row configuration. The two row width fits my sides better. I received compliments on the quality and look. I have to agree it is very well made and I find it to be the same quality of items costing twice as much. Unless something happens during training or work my review and recommendations for people to purchase will stay the same. Very pleased.
