The MPAT is the creation of US service member Seth Brown and is specifically designed for fighter jet aircrew. Its slim profile and stout size keep it on your combat vest and out of the way. Its ideal for vertical carry, and with two modes of sheath retention, its not going anywhere until you need it. The MPATs applications extend beyond the cockpit as well and is perfectly suited for a riggers belt or on a tactical vest. Right there when you need it and out of the way when you dont. When you only have space for one self-defense and survival knife, theres the MPAT.
