Too Many Choices? - Just get your measurements and CALL US!
We are happy to explain the pros and cons of the options.

When comparing weights - please be aware that we quote ACTUAL weights for a normal size Large vest, ready to wear.

We do NOT play the artificial "weight loss" games you may encounter elsewhere, such as quoting the weight of an Small, Short, WITHOUT an outershell carrier.

We recommed buying a vest based on weight AND coverage area, not just weight.

  • Our tactical designs have been used by U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, SOCOM (Special Forces), U.S. Defense Supply Agency, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Air Force & many other U.S. Agencies.

For more details, see the ProMAX Interceptor OTV (Outer Tactical Vest) above

  • The Tactical Vest used by the US Army and US Marine Corps.  Exceeds the ballistic specifications for the soft Body Armor Interceptor IBAS / OTV (Outer Tactical Vest)

  • Aramid vest tested to stop 9mm FMJ from a sub-machine-gun at 1,400 fps (426 mps) with minimal backface deformation / blunt trauma impact.  (Technically can't be called a Level III-A vest as the mil-spec does not call for testing with .44 Magnum, but the 9mm test is identical to Level III-A)

  • very thoroughly tested for Fragmentation

Camo Outershell Carrier

Overstock Special $ 35

An extra carrier is a great investment if you rip your vest hopping barbed wire, etc., etc. ... or just want to have another color option.

We have an overstock of Camo outershells from a military contract overrun, so we are providing these Brand-New carriers at a give-away price.

Just the torso carrier - no neck accessory components or ballistic material. Thus your vest would keep the same color on the Throat and collars that you have now.

These carriers are also great for paintball vests, or a load bearing vest (the back Rifle Plate Pocket is a super-sized hydration pouch).

ProMAX "Turtle" Jacket


Woodland Camo Shown
PHOTO Gallery Page

"An OTV on steroids"
  • We call it the "Turtle" as it offers MAXIMUM practical protection, while preserving mobility.  (The most coverage you can get in a vest, short of a bomb suit.)

  • You add a couple of pounds of weight, but compared to the Interceptor mil-spec, (OTV), it offers much more coverage and protection:
    •  2" - 3" higher coverage under the armpit
    •  2" more coverage lower on the back
    •  4" Over-the-Shoulder Protection (vs. 2" wide on OTV)
    •  3" high collars vs. 2" tall

  • Front opening jacket style modeled on the venerable PASGT flak jacket, but with the much more flexible, comfortable and protective Level III-A aramid / Kevlar protection. Overlap front closure for seamless, double-breasted protection.

  • System includes:
    • Vest with with Rifle Plate Pockets
    • Extra-high Collars sewn-in
    • Generous Over-the-Shoulder Protection
    • Velcro-Detachable Groin Protector
    • MOLLE web strips to attach pouches all over the front and back area

  • 10" by 12" Rifle Plate pockets on the front and back (~25 by 30 cm.). This upgrades the Rifle Plates area to Level III or IV rifle protection. Oversize Rifle Plate Pockets also available. Rifle Plates sold separately.

  • Certified to NIJ Standard 01.0104 / .05 in Level II and III-A.

     

    Made-to-order, and shipped in 3 to 6 weeks.

Weight 11.5 lbs. (5.2 kg.) in Large, Aramid Kevlar / Twaron - yes, all that coverage does weigh a little more

ProMAX Upper Arm Protectors
& Forearm Protectors

Upper Arm Protectors
PHOTO Gallery Page

Also known as bicep protectors, this modular set plugs your vest's armpit / shoulder gap by adding Velcro-detachable Upper Arm Protection. Covers the Bicep, Tricep and Deltoid in Level III-A protection.

Easily attached to Interceptors / OTVs, and all of our Tactical vests, with a strap to the vest at the shoulder, and elastic/Velcro around the bicep.

Protecting the upper arm is important, but most critical is the fact that you now have good cover for the shoulder and armpit gap that is open by necessity on all vests.

For very exposed positions, e.g., turret gunners, entry teams, etc., etc. we also offer Forearm Protectors which extend from wrist to elbow, and provide very good coverage from wrist to shoulder, when combined with the Upper Arm Protectors. (To maintain flexibility and ease of movement there is a small gap at the elbow.)

Tough Cordura® nylon carrier, with many color choices, all coated for waterproofing:
