The ARES™ is a digital faced visual altimeter for those military skydivers who prefer a digital display over a traditional analog display. ARES™ is packed with features and is the perfect visual solution for military skydivers. ARES™ can be set to display ALTITUDE or VERTICAL SPEED.
LB designed the ARES™ to be extremely easy to use and packed with features. The large number LCD screen is easy to recognize and read when the jumper is in freefall or under canopy. LB’s attention to detail with the variety of accessories allows military jumpers to personalize and customize to fit their mounting needs.
A specially designed Sew-On Pocket can be put on the ARES ™ to make it easier to attach to a glove, altimeter pillow, NAV board or jumpsuit and is a separate accessory. LB also offers an elastic arm mount with our molded pocket for secure arm mounting. The LB ARES™ Elastic Mount is available in camo colors and features a raised Lens Guard for great screen protection.
