The Vism Outer Carrier Vest with four Level IIIA Ballistic Panels includes four separate Level IIIA ballistic panels capable of stopping .44 Mag and .357 Mag bullets with a maximum backface deformation of 44mm in accordance with NIJ 0101.06 Level IIIA Standards. The front and rear ballistic panels etend to each side for more coverage and the two separate ballistic side panels overlap the front and rear panels for more side coverage. The ballistic panels are constructed of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene, UHMWPE, creating a lightweight panel. The outer carrier vest is made with PE fabric and the flexible soft panel design allows the panel to conform to body shape. Each of the panels are fully sealed to protect against liquids, chemicals, and other harsh elements. On the outside of the carrier vest, the from and back panels each have an external pocket witha a hook and loop flap for adding external up-armor ballistic plate armor (not included). The shoulders each have a triple flap hook and loop strap system for adjusting how high or low the vest sits on the wearer. The back panel has two integrated ballistic side panels that wraps around both sides of the wearer and secures to the front panel via hook and loop fasteners.
