ATS MCH Hydration Carrier
The ATS MCH Hydration Carrier is designed specifically to integrate with the ATS H-Harness found on ATS modular chest harnesses. To cut weight dramatically, the MCHHC is constructed of 500 denier DuPont Cordura nylon. The unit weighs just eight ounces.
This narrow footprint carrier will hold up to a three liter (103 ounce) reservoir. The MCHHC measures just seven inches wide by seventeen inches long. A Velcro and snap closed hanger attaches the MCHHC to the H-harness, while channels for the waist strap at the lower end of the carrier allow for height adjustment. A grommet in the bottom allows for drainage.
Discussions with war fighters brought us to the conclusion that the PALS webbing normally found on hydration carriers was almost never used to secure load carrying equipment. To adjust for this, ATS incorporated a daisy chain of elastic cord on the face of the carrier, to secure layered items of clothing and the like. The length of the cord is adjustable by an ITW/Nexus Toaster Cord Lock.
The MCHHC is available in Multicam, Coyote Brown, Ranger Green, UCP (ACU), and black. Like all ATS gear, it's covered by a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects in, materials and workmanship.
