What material are they using for the bridge?
Man I’m sorry I gave you bridge loops to bridge loops, I misread your question. That was my fault. You said LB to LB. I apologize ....My covert came in. I ordered it because I thought the end to end length between lineman’s belt loops (L/XL) was longer than the distance on kestrel flex. My shoulder arthritis and cold weather requires more length.
When I checked them against each other, the LB end to end distance were the same. That said, the end to end for the bridge loops were longer on the covert than the flex.
I think I misunderstood someone here with regard to the length before purchasing.
I will need to return. Since I am going to return, I am not going to try wearing / using it.
I did notice one area the stitching was not as nice as the kestrel. The connectors are nice, a little heavier than the ADF.
Unfortunately it won’t work for me.
But the mission platform, that is nice! And that is staying with me for sure. Rock solid, easy to attach and extra room.
Pic shows same distance.
The new ambush pro had longer end to end for LB loops and a better. IMO, LB loop. Unfortunately, for me, the bridge length on the ambush pro is too short and makes it prone to giving me hip pinch.
