During Warrior West, we got to take a closer look at Safarialnd’s Advanced Webless System. Brought to market under the Protech Tactical Armor line, it utilizes the HANK poly-fabric, an abrasion resistant FR fabric that incorporates laser cut holes that accept PALS compatible pouches.
This article is by no means definitive of what Safariland has created but we wanted to give you couple of candid shots of the technology that they have incorporated into their Soldier Protection System entry. Currently in source selection, SPS is a Multi-year technology demonstration tool used by PEO Soldier to identify promising Soldier Systems technology for outright fielding or integration a enhancements to currently fielded systems.
Safariland has also introduced the Advanced Webless System into a line of commercially available vests. As you can see, they’ve put a lot of thought into these designs which are completely scalable from simple plate carrier to integrated cummerbund to dictionary add-ons to enhance survivability.
Look for additional, behind-the-scenes coverage soon.
