Somewhere along the way Down Range Gear has come to attract a fairly regular stream of Mayflower Research & Consulting customers. It’s not a product niche we went looking for or might have predicted. The whole phenomenon has been driven entirely by the customer. That said, this mild association with an innovative industry trend setter is something we take pride in.
This customer wanted a Down Range Gear Enhanced Strap Replacement (Waist Strap) to improve the functionality of his chest rig but also wanted a way to better integrate the waist strap with his Mayflower Armor Carrier. Mayflower has made a name for itself integrating it’s chest rigs onto their armor carriers, but there’s an issue with the waist strap digging into the wearer’s back when it rolls off of the vest. The solution was to fit the back of the vest with a narrow channel with which to retain the waist strap. Pictures tell the rest of the story.
