Gen 4 Elite Extenders
Extenders are a direct replacement for the tri-bar adjuster piece on our retention system. They give extra clearance for large operators, side pouches, and center of back weapon stowage.
A medium extender provides plenty of clearance for 90% of operators.
If you wear medium plates, have large pouches on the side of your kit, and or stow your weapon in the center of your back, we recommend adding a medium extender.
If you wear large plates and have a couple of regular-sized pouches on the side of your kit and stow your weapon on your side or back, we also recommend adding a medium extender.
Large extenders are meant for special situations, as explained below.
If you wear large plates and have multiple large sized pouches on your retaining side and stow your weapon on your back, we recommend adding a large extender.
If your plate carrier lacks molle on the rear panel and you must mount on the opposing cummerbund, a large extender will be needed.
