Spartan Armor Systems has developed two new wraparound body armor vests for tactical operators and professionals requiring additional security and safety in a lightweight, concealable carrier.
The Concealable Level IIIA certified wraparound vest is part of the company’s expanding soft armor line. Designed for discrete operation and comfort, it protects the wearer from standard handgun rounds. The vest’s four-point adjustable strapping system allows the wearer to custom fit the carrier. Featuring a side opening design, the adjustable shoulder straps also allow the wearer to make adjustments while the carrier is being worn. A low-profile loop provides less bulk and reduces any friction against the wearer’s clothing. The construction features a moisture-wicking, anti-microbial inner liner.
The Concealable wraparound vest has a 5”x 8” Trauma Plate for back face deformation reduction and dual 6” x 8” and 7” x 9” front plate inserts. Available in sizes small to XXL for individual professionals or departments.
The second vest, for first responders requiring greater protection and versatility, Spartan’s new Tactical Level IIIA wraparound vest features a streamlined design made from a 1000 denier material. The Tactical wraparound vest offers four-point adjustability with a slide closure cummerbund and shoulder straps that allow for adjusting fit while wearing the carrier. A MOLLE front pocket allows the wearer to fully customize the carrier with additional pouches or accessories. The front and back pockets will hold a Spartan Armor Systems 10” x 12” steel core plate or the composite/ceramic plates. The drag handle is heavy-duty and load-bearing. ID attachment platforms measuring 10.5” x 3” are located where they will be highly visible on the front and back of the vest.
The Tactical wraparound vest can be used as a standard Level IIIA protection vest or the wearer can add a rifle rated ballistic plate up to 10” x 12.” Also available in sizes small to XXL, the Tactical Wraparound vest is available to individual officers or entire departments.
Under the NIJ Certification Level IIIA specifications, both new wraparound vests are rated to stop .44 mag SJHP and Special Threat Rated to stop .357SIG FMJ. Their soft armor can be used stand-alone for Level IIIA protection or in conjunction with a backer for any hard armor systems. Both the Concealable Level IIIA wraparound vest and the Tactical Level IIIA wraparound vest are made in the United States and available to public safety officers and civilians.
