While the Four Point Disconnect offered on the ARC Carrier and other plate carriers with First Spear Tubes is great, the problem of Radio/Communication Cables and Wires routed over the shoulder produce a tricky problem. That problem being that that First Spear Tube on the shoulder where cables are routed can no longer fully detach which impedes the user's egress. Our solution is to run all "Anchoring" cables and hydration tubes over only one shoulder strap which leaves three other First Spear Tube to open freely and easily. This is where the Elastic Tube Cover comes in...
The Elastic Tube Cover is a 3" Elastic Sock that covers up the 2" First Spear Tube on the shoulder strap as well as anything routed underneath which:
-Prevents futile wire anchored tube detaching attempts in high stress situations
-Prevents snagging & pulling of wire & cables
-Protects the cables & wires from the elements
-Produces a more self contained and 'Low Profile' look
