X-Back MOLLE Life Vest

The SWITLIK X-Back MOLLE Air Crew Vest is a newly configured, lightweight crew vest that is a quantum leap in comfort and durability over its predecessor the HV-35. The aptly named X-Back has a unique, proprietary cross back strap configuration, as opposed to the original T-Back vest. The X-Back MOLLE has room to attach all your accessories. This vest was specifically designed for constant wear in the seated position in your helicopter or fixed wing aircraft.

X-Back Basic Life Vest

The new SWITLIK X-Back Basic incorporates the same fit, adjustment and overall comfort users have come to expect from the SWITLIK X-Back MOLLE design, with the addition of two permanently attached pockets in place of the MOLLE vest attachment loops. The “Basic” naming of this vest speaks not to a basic design, but to a vest that is meant for when you only need to travel with basic items such as keys, phone, wallet, locator beacons & sunglasses. SWITLIK respects that a full MOLLE attachment system is not required for all aviators, and that there are times when an all-in-one pocket will do the trick.
