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.
Unlike other counterweights on the market, the Counterbalance Pouch does not impede the use of of the NVG battery pack. It has been 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. We also added three small pockets that can be used to stash survival gear, batteries or any other small mission essential items. for adhesion of patches or addition illumination marking equipment.
Lastly, the exterior features a velcro panels for use of patches or IR markers. Velcro is also featured on the back of the pouch for attaching it to the back of common Ops-Core/Team Wendy helmets, complete with two bungee support tabs that adhere to the side of the helmet for securing it in place.
