The Firebase Parabellum Bandolier is a “tactical” bandolier developed by Vertx in conjunction with Firebase Combat Studies Group. The Vertx / Firebase Parabellum is a multi-use load-bearing option with a low profile, designed to mitigate the weight and space issues made by the need to bring mags for multiple mission profiles.

Check out the video below. You’ll see that the Parabellum can be worn as a bandolier, like a chest rig, or under the arms.  You can also mount it to a plate carrier, inside a backpack, or down in a bag to consolidate your kit (or to keep minimalist LBE handy for use in extremis).

Vertx advises,

“You can’t always spare the space or weight it takes to pack for multiple mission profiles so when it comes to loadout the Firebase Bandolier is the versatile solution you need. With the ability to be worn or stored in four different configurations, the Firebase Bandolier is an expert addition to the Prepared Professional’s arsenal.”

 

Features:

• Unique multi-purpose pouch platform allows for on or off-body carry options
• Exterior panel can be stowed to reveal hook-side for attachment in bags, packs, chest rigs, and plate carriers
• The center stow pocket can be used to store sensitive items like IDs and documents or IFAK
• Belt keeper shock-cord provides added security when worn in x-strap configuration
• Snap closures add retention when on the move
• Straps can be reconfigured for left or right-handed use
• Pouches can be oriented faceup or facedown for faster reloading

Construction:

• 4 pouches sized to fit AR15 magazines, IFAKs, radios, and other tools (Option 1)
• 4 pouches sized to fit pistol caliber carbine magazines, flashlights, and other tools (Option 2)
• Overlapping elastic retention
• Silicone printing inside mag pouches for added retention

Fabric and Technology:

• Pliable material conforms to the body

Be A Hard-Charger, Just Do It Discreetly

You can’t always spare the space or weight it takes to pack for multiple mission profiles so when it comes to loadout the Firebase Parabellum Bandolier is the versatile solution you need. Worn either under the right or left arm like a shoulder holster, diagonally across the body like a bandolier, attached to the front of your plate carrier, or deployed from your bag for off-body carry, the Firebase Parabellum Bandolier allows up to four mags with the ability to configure access either from the top or bottom.

Each mag cell has silicon printing for extra retention and the centerline pocket is Tactigami compatible and a great place to store maps, documents or an IFAK. Designed for concealment under shirts or jackets the low-profile shoulder and waist straps secure the bandolier without adding bulk. A multifunctional, multiple carry platform, the Firebase Bandolier is an expert addition to the Prepared Professional’s arsenal.
