READY VEST

The ultimate in external vest carriers for patrol-based individuals, first responders and investigating personnel.  Easily insert your concealable ballistic panels into the Ready Vest and quickly turn your concealable body armor into an tactical and comfortable ballistic outer carrier.

This carrier also allows the addition of Rifle Plates on both the front and back faces of the carrier for full Rifle Threat Protection.  Wrap-around MOLLE webbing provides attachment capability for mag, cuff, OC spray, or any additional equipment pouches or holsters.  With the Ready Vest, you can be quickly up-armored and Ready for any active shooter threat, warrant service, tactical containment or any other threat-escalating patrol situation.
