I showed this a while back in my shotshow footage, but now I finally got around to showing some up-close pics. This is the business right here, the differences are immediately noticable. Due to the custom plastic hardware and connection design this strap is very easy to adjust while still on your head. Up and away is to losen, Down and toward is to tighten, very intuitive. The standard MICH strap, on the other hand, pretty much only allows tightening while on and it isn't that easy to do the back straps.
The bulk of the Ops-Core strap is made of Nomex so you can count on fire resistance when disaster occurs. The creator wanted me to note the desert color shown is more golden than he would like and this is not the final color. As you may have guessed, Nomex color selections aren't as vast as typical milspec webbing. Besides the ease of use, the Ops-Core strap is much more stable as well. For those with NVGs or those who just like to headbang, you will appreciate the improvement. I've been trying out the X-strap version, but apparently the H-strap version has even more stability. Both are offered since some will like the fit and feel of the X-strap version more. Installation is easy just like the standard MICH strap. The Ops-Core strap is currently available in sizes of S/M and L/XL and colors of Foliage Green, Urban Tan, and Black. Both versions can be purchased with main buckle on left or right side and a 3" extension strap is now available for use with gas masks.
