Here, here, give that man a cigar. My point exactly.

You can never tell what motives are at play here on the internet. Even if this was merely clueless commentary, it still questions a site supporter's integrity by implying price-gouging. That's at best. It only goes down hill from there. I've seen various actors here, either white-knighting on their own, or in cahoots with competing companies, that criticize other companies, namely TNVC, for the purpose of trying to hurt their sales.

And yes, we have gotten very close to GD-style commentary here.

So maybe to get back on track. The question is whether quality US-made sewn goods are worth investing in, versus foreign made products. If you merely look at the cost, then you are tempted to buy foreign, for less initial outlay. And depending on what your end-use is, you may or may not get by with it. Saying "just sew it up" is a facetious statement; as was pointed out, that may not be a viable option for some. If you buy a quality made product, from a US mfg, it will cost more, because we live in a 1st world country. We like a certain standard of living, which costs more to support. Those that want to live this way, but take advantage of goods made by 2/3d world countries are wanting to benefit from it, but not pay for it. This seems to be a common theme these days; people who feel they are entitled to all sorts of things, with no sweat equity in it themselves.

In this particular case, this company makes and sells high-end NV gear, and offers no apologies for it. It is for the professional, or at least serious end-user. The gray area is the vast number of other folks that use it for various other reasons. They have to decide if they want professional level kit, or just copies of it. For this particular item, it has been documented, numerous times, that cheap knock-offs fall apart, with little handling or use. So the choice is clear. If you need to depend on your gear, or if you just want your gear to last, the Mohawk is the way to go. Or at least A way to go.

As far as people attacking TNVC... when you’re the best/biggest, people are always gonna take shots.

It can chop stuff off and change its name to Mo but it will still always be a Mohawk, biology is biology

It's not small. I never think to take off the extension until I'm in the field, and I don't want to lose it.

Running it in the long config does not introduce any issues that the short config overcomes (e.g., you already cannot comfortably sit in a truck wearing it in short config). For walking around, it's just fine. I do not like how loud the short config is.

My Mohawk Mk1 Gen 2 should be on UPS truck and at my door tomorrow!

Update, got it and it's what I have come to expect from TNVC, high quality. Now the IR marker is next on my list.
Link Posted: 5/11/2019 1:22:25 AM EDT


I'm a definite fan of the Mohawk. I took half the weight strips out of mine and filled the included battery card thing up with cr123's, and it's a perfect counterweight.

Lol - no doubt.

Love my Mohawk and convinced my Boomer dad to try the Goon life, so he picked up a Mohawk the other day for his set up. Told me it’s a game changer for him.

I went to Academy and got some duck decoy weights for cheap. They're just strips of flexible lead that you can shape to the back of the helmet.

You can use wheel weights too - check which is cheaper. IIRC Amazon sells 60oz boxes for about $15. I looked at Pine Derby Tungsten weights, but good lord are they expensive, LOL!

Well, I finally decided to order a Mohawk. I thought I could build a better mousetrap, but the reality is, these guys have done a pretty good job at designing and making this thing. And just to "troll" on that guy, I'm gonna buy the TNVC product.

Thanks, I got some Mossy Oak branded ones from Amazon. They're 9" long and 6 oz each, broke two in half. Much better than my PRC-152 battery as a counterweight.

Stitched into a TNVC MK2 pouch (reserved for when ABNV wants to start offering LEMO conversions for first gen RNVG's. I used to own the MK1 pouch and like how low profile the lead weight pockets were.

Wait, what did you achieve here? is this a mohawk with vertical weights? I only have the MK1 so I have no clue.

ETA: NVM I am looking at this wrong. You MADE a pouch?

Owns a TNVC MK2 pouch
1. Waiting for LEMO conversion housings for existing RNVG's
2. Got sick of using a PRC-152 battery as a counterweight
3. Used to own TNVC MK1 pouch
3a. Misses user-configurable and pliable lead weights
4. Stitches elastic bands into MK2 pouch to retain said lead weights
5. Still waiting on ABNV to provide LEMO RNVG housing upgrades to run an external battery pack.

I received my Black Multicam TNVC Mk1 Gen 2 Mohawk in and I love it. It is just what I was looking for. Now I need one for my other helmet in regular Multicam. @TNVC any ideas on how long it could take if I ordered a Multicam.

Here's the pics...

Love the MC black! Wish I could find a helmet cover in it for my pre Hilderbeast TW. Did you mold the weights to the helmet, or have it stuffed full of kit? Looks boxy compared to mine

The included weights as well as extra AA batteries are in there. It's packed full.
Link Posted: 6/14/2019 12:46:15 PM EDT
I’m looking for a CW pouch that will hold about 4 AA batteries and 4 cr123 batteries. I think that will be enough for a pvs-14 on a TW exfil. Any options for that?

If tnvc made a hawkless Mohawk, I think that’d be a hot seller.

Are you talking about the TNVC Mohawk Bruce Caitlyn Jenner Mod -1?

I am. They should offer it.

The platatac battery counterweight looks good, but I was unable to add it to cart on my phone. They are in Australia.

Just recieved mine tonight. Thank you TNVC.

I added weight to offset Duals, may not be necessary for a Mono.
