The LVS from Crye Precision is now available. We first showed it to you at SHOT Show 2016. The first thing you will notice is that the LVS base vest requires no external carrier at all. This is due to their unique “Insert As Vest™” architecture. In fact, although it’s stiffened, there is a special storage system to ensure the vest is stored properly to keep its shape.
It uses their proprietary 3 dimensional forming technology which shapes the vest to directly match the contours of the human body. This means a new level of concealment and comfort that only this production process can deliver. Because it is molded, the armor will not crumple and fold up in the bottom of the carrier.
You’re generally going to wear the LVS Base Vest concealed. However, there are multiple covers available for the LVS, for various purposes. The Base Vest is Grey in color and offered in Small – 2XLarge in regular and tall sizes. LVS is Certified NIJ-0101.06 Type IIIA. Optional side armor panels are also available.
Yes, it’s comfortable. Yes, people have been wearing it for quite awhile and no, the sweat issue you’re going to bring up isn’t much of an issue, so long as you take care of your equipment and wipe it down after use.
