PROTECH® Tactical Rail Mount for Ballistic Face Shields
The ProTech® Ballistic Face Shield tactical rail mounting system is an innovative mechanical design allowing the 702L, 702M, and 702MT ballistic face shields to be attached onto the industry standard picatinny rail mounts equipped on Delta helmets. Designed for tactical teams in need of a ballistic face shield that is compatible with tactical rails and shrouds, the new rail mounting system is an easy to use locking mechanism suited for rapid deployment. The enhanced speed allow for face shields to be deployed or stowed with the use of just a single hand. The all new rail mounting system provides the ability for mounting on all cuts of helmets: Full, Mid, and High cuts. The new system supplies all the features perfect for tactical teams approaching high pressure situations.
I think the threat from that would be debris to the eye. Magazines and ammo aren't going to spall the same way as a bullet onto hardened steel.What about the habit of wearing mags across your chest? Would a round impacting the mags and ammo create enough dangerous spall (and there is no coating there) to cause serious harm?
Easy fix for sweat/water/bodily fluid intercalation in hard plates is a mylar/polymer food storage bag. Seal them up before installing them in the carrier. Easy peasy.Care of woven Kevlar- Since this has come up a lot, here are my recommendations:
The enemies of woven Kevlar are two- sun exposure (strong, chronic exposure to UV light) and bacteria/fungus. The best way to protect against the former is don't go sunning in your bare armor panels. Keep them inside the carrier, or at the very least in their protective fabric outer sheath. For the latter, every once in a while, soak the armor panels in a weak solution of baking soda. This will kill the fungus, and neutralize any acids produced by sweat eating bacteria. You can then follow up with a very mild dish soap solution, then rinse again and let dry. This will keep your armor practically immortal. DO NOT put your armor in the dryer, and DO NOT use harsh chemical cleaners on it. Just baking soda and a little dish/bar soap is all you need.
As someone with extensive knowledge of carbon nanotube polymers (2 year post-doc with one of the world's foremost producers/researchers), I would say don't waste your money. CNT is not the wave of the future most people thought it would be.Any companies you can recommend that are producing vests with carbon nanotube technology? Has any testing been done you are aware of? Wondering if the back deflection is less with this material.
Don't own any but have handled it and know people who have. Do own several garments with built in body armor and its the least likely worn. Except for an over $1,000 custom motorcycle jacket had NIJ 2 Kevlar with NIJ 1 stab panels added to make it bullet resistant and protect from being impaled if left the road into trees the stab panels take over.Might as well get some feedback on this stuff. As Oregon continues to tank , most of the murders are done with handguns. What are your thoughts on this brand?

It is a very thin panel (thinner than the lowest threat level stab panel and each panel goes in your carrier behind your ballistic panel. It detects force from a blow and if its enough to cause injury, if panel or device has been compromised plus gives most probable cause such as bullet (and if armor made the stop or failed), knife and size of area cut or blow from blunt force and estimate of energy.Includes:
Two sensor panels (front and back) with integrated BLE modules and supporting software
The AID system with BLE-ASSY-02 provides a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) notification to a device with BLE support (Bluetooth version 4.0 or higher) such as an:
BLE-ASSY-02 has an enclosure with a rechargeable battery (typically one year charge).
- Android smartphone
- Land Mobile Radio (LMR) provided the radio supports BLE
- Compatible tablet
- Single Mode of Communication/Notification using BLE to a device with BLE support
- Detects break in continuity of active sensor panel and automatically sends emergency alerts
- Automatically sends GPS location
- Displays battery level of BLE module
- Allows entry of person's name/identifier
- Can open microphone on cell phone (Android smartphone only) so a designated individual can listen in at the attack scene
- Sends location of the injury (upper/lower, front, back) and updated position when moved 30 feet or more.
- AID App runs in background, remaining active
Huey would know....World is going to hell more every day.
Considering some soft armor.
Any opinions on this :
The Ghost concealment shirt provides discreet protection when used in conjunction with the included Flex Fused Core IIIA soft armor panels.www.spartanarmorsystems.com
