Curv bio yoke, sharp plastic?

Recommended Posts

Those are just tuck-tab pockets. at the very worst, *if* you could somehow contort yourself to have them move past your jugular, you'd do better to be worried about fabric burn than the small plastic insert cutting through a layer of cordura and still having enough force to open skin.

However...the hook knife in my mudflap does worry me from time to time (usually when I go through the airport). :D

So very true, but I don´t own a Curv, just going by the pictures.

And I made a mistake, I ment under the shoulders( check picture). Looks like stiffeners, and it looks like plastic or something that is riggid and have sharp sides. Could someone who have a Curv explain what these are?

That is the BioYoke, and it is soft, flexible, and not at all plastic. It is a flexible fabric, identical to what is on a Swiss Army computer bag. Nothing sharp at all.

FWIW, I have two Curvs :P



Are they as comfy as they look?

Short answer: yes.

Long answer: yes.

Hi shuffle,

The two plastic inserts over the shoulders?



Are you sure that those are not the tuck-tab pockets?

If so, that is very normal and nothing to be concerned about.

Agreed. Also, I believe new Curvs and Curv 2s now come with mag riser covers (I think....).

The two plastic inserts over the shoulders? Or have I mixed it all up :D



Yes, you have it mixed up. What you are looking at is the BioYoke, a major part of why the Curv is so comfortable. There is nothing sharp, no plastic, so your jugular is probably safe with an RI Curv...

Try on a Curv, jump one if you can. I think you will be impressed.
