The first patented retractable lanyard riggers belt has just been released by MATBOCK. It incorporates a 4000 lbs Kevlar lanyard with Dyneema stitching at the load point into your normal riggers belt. The operator can simply pull on the 2 stage carabiner to extend the lanyard and hook in to the helicopter or hoist system. After detaching, the lanyard automatically retracts back into the belt. Instead of having to stuff the lanyard into a pocket or have a loop near his/her hip as a snag hazard, the operator's lanyard is tucked away until needed again. Furthermore, the Kevlar lanyard is spliced at both ends and the Dyneema stitching at the hot point prevents decay from salt water, possibly compromising the safety of the operator during an emergency situation. This initial version has a fixed length 20-inch lanyard to be at arms length for most soldiers.

The Matt "MADDOG" Mason (M3) SkyFins were developed to mimic the increased control and maneuverability given by civilian skydiving pants and fit directly over your combat pants and boots. Simply slide them over your toe, secure the Velcro along the side, and then attach the cord around your knee pad. They are specifically designed to fit the SOCOM PCU Level 9 combat pants with exposed knee pads.
During freefall, the increased surface area will give you more control and will also allow you to track farther. Made of 500 Weight Cordura with synthetic leather on the bottom of your toe, the M3 SkyFins are designed for durability and survivability. The M3 SkyFins are also outfitted with a VS-17 signaling panel on each leg. These panels can be combined to create one large panel for signaling aircraft, thus decreasing the amount single purpose gear required to be carried by each operator.
Please contact us for testing, shipping and pricing information on the Cargo System. This is a unique product and we are proactively working with companies who are interested in using the net to customize and ensure it is the best solution for their needs.
The Constrictor Cargo System was developed over many years and multiple prototypes to address the multitude of deficiencies experienced with the current nets. The easily identifiable sides ensure the net is oriented and attached correctly the first time to prevent extra work. Additionally, the adjustable straps are connected with ratchets, giving the user a mechanical advantage to ensure cargo stays secured during flights and within size limits. The net is designed to accommodate all size loads without having to remove or add additional pieces. By reducing the amount of hardware on each net, our design minimizes not only failure and maintenance points, but also overall cost with no loss of cargo capacity. Furthermore, each piece of hardware was hand selected with the end user in mind to provide adjustability without sacrificing cargo security during flight.
