According to an equipment reviewer for Officer.com, "In today's world of Active Shooter/Immediate Response training, every cop should have their long rifle in one of these Rapid Deployment Body Armor Bags. This is the single most innovative piece of equipment I've seen in the past ten years if not longer." This product instantly converts from a multi-purpose weapon carrying case to a tactical body armor vest with up to NIJ Level IV protection. In one piece of equipment, the officer can arrive on the scene of an active shooter and have split-second access to their rifle and pistol ammunition, flex cuffs, and soft armor with optional hard plates for torso, back and lower abdomen protection. The bag also features a flashlight pouch, attachments for a gas mask and medical kit, and police markings. It's everything an officer needs, when they need it. As simple as unzipping a bag, as easy as wearing your ballistic vest. The RDAB is constructed from exceptionally strong 1,000 denier Cordura, for long lasting durability.
The Universal Plate Carrier Technology accommodates 10-inch by 12-inch hard armor plates while the bag's front and back panels contain soft body armor which provides protection for the torso, back and abdomen area. This patent pending product provides first responders with immediate access to a rifle, extra rifle ammunition, pistol magazines, flex-cuffs, flashlight, identification, and MOLLE compatible attachment points to hold a protective gas mask. Constructed from 1,000 denier MIL-spec ballistic nylon, the bag comes in two styles, the first of which can hold up to a 24-inch weapon. The second style accommodates a 28-inch weapon and expands up to 45-inch via attachment shrouds.
