Tacprogear BLACK's Releasable Body Armor Vest (RBAV) design is based on the SPEAR/BALCS shaped platform with a full-coverage tactical cut protecting the upper torso from multiple ballistic threats (depending upon level of ballistic inserts utilized). The vest is compatible with an array of optional components, such as bicep, groin and throat and collar protection. The ambidextrous, quick-release mechanism stays tucked under the throat access flap and is easily reached and deployed.
The RBAV system consists of a base vest assembly and outer shell base vest carrier with an optional ballistic insert set and one set of interchangeable left and right cummerbunds, one pair of removable side plate pockets, internal elastic belly-band, pair of revocable shoulder pads and the quick release cable. The system is fully adjustable for length and girth. A front admin/document pouch is built-in for easy access. Pouch Attachment Ladder System (PALS) webbing is stitched on the front, back and cummerbunds of the RBAV to accommodate limited load bearing pouches. The Tacprogear BLACK RBAV system also includes a reinforced drag handle, integrated routing channels for cable management and fully adjustable placement of side plate pockets.
Tacprogear BLACK's RBAV system is available in Coyote, MultiCam (OCP), Kryptek Mandrake™ and Black. Tacprogear manufactures the RBAV in their new facility in Miami, Florida as part of the BLACK line.
