Ferro Concepts Assault Back Panel

When it comes to nylon gear you would think there are only so many ways to configure components to come up with new design concepts. While this is partially true and varied materials do allow for innovation, we are intrigued by the new low profile minimalist Assault Back Panel (ABP) being offered by Ferro Concepts. The design is simplistic and definitely gives you a limited amount of storage, but for many folks, that is all they want. In addition there is no PALS webbing, so the ABP is certainly for a lightweight simplistic load carry.

The Ferro Concepts ABP has three means of load carry including a hydration panel for a 2 Liter Bladder, Three adjustable GP Munitions pouches up top for magazines, grenades, or whatever your imagination constructs, and a large GP Compartment. The Pouches use shockcord retention for a quiet entry and elastic retention at the center of the pouch.

The main storage compartment also has a mesh divider for a bit of organization. The Panel attaches direct to a Plate Carrier. Ferro Concepts offers the Assault Back Panel in MultiCam, AOR2, Desert Digital, Coyote Brown, and Ranger Green.
