Much like the gambeson for which this package has been named for, this armor is intended to be worn either standalone or under other garments. The historic gambeson often contained attachment point for adding supplemental plates to increase the armors capabilities. We chose the Chase Tactical (Low-Visibility Plate Carrier (LVPC) to fill this roll due to not only concealability, but modularity as well. The LVPC is easily adjustable via the cumberbund and shoulder straps, as well as maintaining the ability to add removable pouches via the velcro on the front. The cumberbund also features (2) discreet mag pouches on either side.
There are a lot of options on the market today, for the intent of this armor package, we chose the HESCO® 200 series. HESCO® has been providing body armor for military use for over 20 years. Tier armor is tested to exceed all NIJ standards. The plates offered in this package are not only lightweight, but also tested for ballistic, blast, fragment and stab protection.
This package was designed with current events in mind, be it active shooter situation or impending riots. This is not meant to be a "full kit" armor package. This is the armor package designed with discretion in mind, its easily concealable, comfortable to wear and maneuverable.
