The HSG NVG Counterbalance Pouch by RE Factor is designed specifically for individuals using NVGs with battery pack attachment. The pack comes with two x .45lb parkerized steel plates to give the user an additional weight of just under 1lb. When combined with the battery pack and batteries the total counter weight can equal up to around 1.5lbs to provide for comfortable use of NVGs. The slim counter weight design helps keep from pushing the helmet forward when riding in aircraft or vehicles. In addition, unlike other counterweights on the market, the Counterbalance Pouch does not impede the use of of the NVG battery pack.
The HSG NVG Counterbalance Pouch by RE Factor is designed to allow the user to still use the on-off toggle switch as well as easily change out batteries without needing to remove the battery pack or pouch. In addition, we added three small pockets that can be used to stash survival gear, batteries or any other small mission essential items. The pack comes with an outer loop panel for adhesion of patches or addition illumination marking equipment.
Finally, we included a hook panel on the back of the pouch to adhere to the back of common Ops-Core/Team Wendy helmets as well as two bungee support tabs that adheres to the side of the helmet to help keep the pouch in place in austere environments
