Enabling quick removal of backpacks + efficient weight distribution and flexibility
In the Israel Pavilion in hall 6, on stand #D-657, Marom Dolphin Ltd., a manufacturer of tactical textile solutions and personal military supplies for armed forces, police units, law enforcement agencies, security services and civilian authorities, unveils FUSION, an integrated carbon skeleton system that connects a soldier’s vest and backpack, enabling quick removal of the backpack, as needed. This low-weight, durable system allows efficient weight distribution and flexibility.
“We developed FUSION to address the two main challenges of the modern soldier: the issue of carrying a great deal of weight – and his ability to maneuver efficiently and agilely despite the large amount of equipment carried on his back,” Shlomo Baime, VP Marketing Marom Dolphin, says.
FUSION’s patented structure connects any size backpack to the soldier’s vest without additional straps. Dynamic straps and duty belt allow maximum fit for any user. Essential equipment – such as ballistic plates, hydration system, communications, etc. – are integrated into the vest, available to the soldier when the backpack is removed. The company’s FORMISSION hinge enables easy, comfortable manoeuvring, and the use of special materials eliminates friction with the body, minimizing injuries. The front panel is fully removable for different add-ons, under-fire equipment swaps, or medical equipment.
Mr. Baime continued: “In the development of the new system, we have used the most advanced materials and ergonomic engineering to provide optimal distribution of weight on the soldier’s back so that he or she feels less restricted. On the other hand, the system allows the soldier to quickly remove the backpack if necessary, and still carry essential equipment while maintaining his ability to manoeuvre.”
