Packs and body armor- a painful combination. The pack's shoulder pads slide off the armor and cut into your armpits, producing bleeding, chafing and ultimately nerve damage. The pack can flop around, and the chest strap on many packs can interfere and tangle with your tactical load out.

The designers at Mystery Ranch have created a solution- adding a modular cinch strap- the Mystery Cinch to the front of your IBA, MTV or other body armor.

Any armor or plate carrier with MOLLE or PAL web on the front works with the quick attach anchors, allowing easy attachment and adjustment of the Mystery Cinch.

The Mystery Cinch should be placed just above the armors arm hole, to route your packs shoulder straps down the front of your armor and to keep the straps from cutting into your armpits.

This routing also keeps your pack’s shoulder straps extended longer than normal, allowing your pack to fall off your shoulders when you pull the single quick-release buckle to dump your load in a hurry. The Mystery Cinch works with ANY pack, from a CamelBak™ hydration pack up through MOLLE, ILBE and ALICE rucks. It even works with Mystery Ranch packs (of course!)
