The incredibly durable frame system creates a standoff using a positive tension system suspending the carrier off of the wearer's chest and back, allowing openings on the top, bottom, and both sides. The side channels allow air and wind to travel laterally under the tactical carrier, while top and bottom openings allow hot air to escape while cooler air circulates in. The standoff beneath the car- rier also creates an impact reduction effect, drasti- cally reducing back-face by 60 percent or more. This suspended area increases comfort, as there are no hard points or dense foam to create pressure points. • Circle 15 on Reader Service Card ★ 4-panel body armor vest for women Gone are the days of concealment vests riding up. No longer do female officers have to toler- ate a vest that bunches, billows, or scoops on the chest and neck. The Propper 4-panel vest for women with its unique 4-panel system was designed from the ground-up for the female officer. It sets a new standard in women's vest comfort and protection. Traditional 2-panel vests have front and back sections that don't always offer the cor- rect protection on the sides. Propper's modular side panels are sized to the individual. This enhanced fit ensures that the officer has the right amount of protection in the right areas. • Circle 14 on Reader Service Card ★ Ballistic briefcase The AE Tech Shield briefcase from Armor Express Inc. holds your gear while also serving as a shield for your back (or front, or side). • Fits A E NIJ 0101.06 Standard Ballistic Armor Guard (B.A.G.) concealed panel in II or IIIA in a zippered sleeve, Size A • Durable 600D polyester construction • Multiple zippered document storage compartments • Two concealed dual handgun magazine pouches and one concealed AR style magazine pouch • Padded pocket fits common laptop styles and sizes • Dimensions: 17 inches by 12 inches by 7 inches • Circle 16 on Reader Service Card ★ This is "light-headed" The Ultra Light Weight (ULW) helmet from 3M Personal Safety Division is engineered to provide superior ballistic and bump head protection while reduc- ing weight for improved mobility. • 1.26-pound finished shell weight (in Large, three sizes available) • Blunt impact: with D3O Trust Pad tested and evaluated in accordance with DOT&E protocol for Enhanced Combat Helmet: GL-PD-09-04 • Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene composite solution • Circle 17 on Reader Service Card ★ Ballistic buoyancy DKX M3 (MAX III) Series armor from Phalanx Defense Systems LLC stops special non-armor piercing threats such as the Winchester Ranger and 7.62x39 MSC.
