Apogee Force Multiplier: The DarkSide Outer Belt From Norden Outdoors


    If you work armed security, there’s a possibility that things could get hairy. If that were to happen, having an easily accessible belt with more capability could be invaluable. Getting the outer belt to correctly integrate with your concealment attire is the trick. One of the more handsome options for concealed carry belts, the Boxer Tactical Apogee Belt, is gaining popularity among armed security. It only makes sense that Norden Outdoors made an outer belt option that works attaches to the Apogee. This is the new DarkSide Outer Belt from Norden Outdoors.

    Shield Arms news @ TFB:


    Norden Outdoors is pleased to announce the DarkSide inner/outer belt system, their solution to today’s hook and loop gun belts. Norden has taken the popular EDC belt from Boxer Outdoors called the Apogee and developed a ratcheting system that uses opposing force to attach an outer belt to the Apogee comfortably.

    The American-made DarkSide attachment hardware is machined from 7075 billet aluminum in Bigfork, Montana. The belt is available in two materials. The Elite version is 2″ TPU-coated webbing. It uses laser-cut patterns to integrate with MOLLE-based accessories. The ends of the Elite are RF welded to the main strap. The other version is made of more traditional nylon materials. The shooter’s belt is made by combining two layers of 1.75″ nylon and bar-tacking MOLLE compatible PALS webbing. The ends are made from ULTRAcomp laminate materials and are bar-tacked to the webbing.
