End User Benefits:
The ULTRAcomp® material, as used in the Helium Whisper® attachment system meets or exceeds the durability of 1000d Cordura® fabric even though it is deceivingly thin. Tested to ASTM 3884, ULTRAcomp passed through over 8,000 cycles of a 50-gram Taber test. Adding to the material durability, the attachment straps are integral to the backer with no sewn seams to fail or be torn off.
Helium Whisper uses a propriety hook and loop fastening system that is superior to snaps. Everyone has seen Natick Snaps on traditional MOLLE pouches rusted shut, broken, missing, or otherwise inoperable. The Helium Whisper tabs tuck underneath for a quiet, secure, failure-free attachment. If a pouch were to be pulled away from the platform, Helium Whisper would pull the attachment tighter, compared to snaps that simply pull apart.
Helium Whisper® is field-repairable. There are no metal snaps that require setters or spare snaps to repair. Helium Whisper only requires a knife and paracord, zip ties, or thread for the user to be back in the fight, reducing bins full of damaged, unusable field gear.
Helium Whisper® is available for adoption now. It has been fully field tested and highly rated by military users. Helium Whisper backers are a turnkey solution for manufacturers looking to cut costs, eliminate sewing errors and deliver superior products over the competition.
