UNITY CLUTCH BELT

CLUTCH™ is a modular, multi-purpose belt platform that hugs the body with a two-way stretch material for a custom fit. Designed by Unity Tactical™ to make a combat loadout disappear under civilian clothes, the CLUTCH™ is a must-have system for anyone conducting low-vis or undercover operations. It can be completely mission-configured for any plain-clothes law enforcement, military, security, or CCW mission. The CLUTCH™ allows for carriage of a full size pistol, multiple reloads, radio, IFAK, etc., giving the user more capability to prosecute a fight and is a force multiplier for missions that would otherwise relegate operators to compact weapons and less hardware. Outfit the CLUTCH™ with your favorite sweats and workout gear or combine it with your arsenal of Vertx® apparel for the ultimate covert uniform.

S.O.C.P. Sling

Preparedness is no vacation. That’s why we’ve collaborated with SOCP to create the SOCP Sling. Easily maskable as a standard waist pack, this sling is anything but. Quickly reconfigure the sling from waist carry to attachment on a pack strap with the tool-concealing metal attachment clips. The cellphone compartment is adjustable for use as a NAV board and its innocuous exterior flaps fold down to reveal your camera for surveillance applications. When the job picks up intensity, the internal coin pocket converts the sling into an SAP and the expanding internal pouch can be used to store confiscated items. Whether overt or covert, the SOCP Sling is equipped with all the features needed to complete any mission.

Features:

  • Adjustable attachment clips allow for wear on the waist or shoulder strap of other packs
  • Hidden rapid access pocket for the SOCP dagger or other tools
  • Internal coin pocket converts sling into SAP/slapjack
  • External cellphone pocket with touch screen window can be folded down to use as NAV board
  • Exterior flaps on cellphone pocket fold in for photo or video surveillance
  • Expanding internal pocket fits additional gear or items found in the field
  • Back-to-back exterior zipper pulls allow for ambidextrous access in low-light environments
  • Interior body-side mesh pocket quickly deploys for access to hidden pocket underneath

Construction:

  • Metal attachment clips compatible with belts or straps up to 2.25” wide
  • Internal pockets constructed in tear-resistant mesh
  • Quiet exterior zipper pulls reduce noise while on the move
  • 500D Cordura body fabric adds durability
