The SPLITminus features Blue Force Gear's proprietary MOLLEminus technology: MOLLE minus the weight, MOLLE minus the bulk, MOLLE minus the complexity.

The MOLLEminus design provides the thinnest, strongest, lightest modular load carriage of individual combat equipment: half the thickness of a dime, more than four times as abrasion resistant as air textured nylon and formed from a single piece of Blue Force Gear's proprietary ULTRAcomp laminate.

"Our friends who have used our RACKminus chest rig loved the lightweight modularity but wanted to see a split version for better comfort when in the prone position." said John Felushko, Blue Force Gear's product line manager. "Also, front opening chest rigs are easier to use in the low profile operations that are becoming more prevalent as conflict evolves. SPLITminus delivers the solution they requested."

SPLITminus is the simplest modular chest rig on the market and can be easily donned or doffed in seconds. Simply unbuckle the two center buckles and drop. The included mesh-lined shoulder straps are free breathing, MOLLE compatible and provide routing for communications wires, hydration tubes or antennas.

SPLITminus is compatible with all legacy issue MOLLE pouches and for the ultimate lightweight chest rig combine SPLITminus with pouches featuring Blue Force Gear's revolutionary Helium Whisper Attachment system.

Blue Force Gear's proprietary high performance laminate, ULTRAcomp, far exceeds the military standard air textured nylon in tear and abrasion resistance. It has antifungal and hydrophobic features which reduces skin infection, odor, and weight gain when wet.
