The Licentia Arms Improved Counterweight Kit is a dual role counterweight system that functions as a night vision counterweight and a secure PVS-31 battery pack holder. Constructed from Laminate Cordura the LAC Improved Counterweight system is low profile, has positive retention, offers cable management, and has loop velcro for patches.
Adding a counterweight to the back of a night vision helmet helps balance out weight distribution and improve comfort for the user. However, we believe that if weight is added to a helmet it should serve a purpose. Other counterweight kits on the market either are small and provide only lead weights with no functionality or they are large, bulky, and outdated. The LAC Improved Counterweight Kit allows users to use a loaded 10rd PMAG as their counterweight. This not only is the perfect weight to balance out a night vision helmet but also offers additional ammunition storage.
In addition to the ability to run a 10rd PMAG, users who use battery packs can secure them to their helmet without fear of loosing expensive battery packs. This not only secures the battery pack, but also protects it while providing cable management. By securing the battery pack cable the user eliminates the need to rig up sub par ways to eliminate snag hazards.
The LAC Improved Counterweight Kit is physically retained on the helmet by both hook velcro and anchors that attach to the rear rail bolts on any helmet. By using high strength shot cord for retention the counterweight kit is universal to all helmets and has two forms of retention.
Surrounding the main counterweight compartment there are 6 elastic loops (two on top / bottom & one on each side) to secure chemlights and cables. We know that cable management is top priority on helmets to prevent snag hazards and easy deployment of comm cables.
