TYR Tactical Tuesday – Patented Female Shaped Body Armor

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018

TYR Tactical® began designing the Patented Female Shaped body armor system in 2014 in direct response to the US Army’s Soldier Protection System solicitation.

Knowing that existing male or unisex systems do not allow female users to properly perform basic tasks and still maintain comfort, TYR Tactical® conducted Biomechanical and Female Athletic Performance Studies.  TYR Tactical’s findings provided the framework for its ergonomically shaped ballistics and carriers that conform specifically to the female anatomy.  The shape and structure of its Female Body Armor System allows females to perform their duties comfortably and enhance their capabilities without jeopardizing their protection.

PATENTED FEMALE SHAPE

US Patent No. 9,970,736, Patent Pending in Australia, Europe and Canada

Two lateral darts on the tactical outer carrier contour around the female’s natural shape while still providing a full range of motion, support and eliminates excess compression on the breast tissue.

Army Historical Foundation Calls for Stories of Women Soldiers

Saturday, March 17th, 2018

ARLINGTON, Va. – The Army Historical Foundation is calling for women Soldiers, or loved ones and friends on their behalf, to submit their stories of service to the Foundation’s Registry of the American Soldier. The Registry is a searchable online record of photos and Soldiers’ stories that will appear in the future National Museum of the United States Army, currently under construction at Fort Belvoir, Va. The Foundation is encouraging women to enter their stories to ensure the Registry reflects the diversity of the 30 million Americans who have served in the U.S. Army.

“The military community rightly commemorates Women’s History Month every March by highlighting the contributions of our women service members, but it’s important that these Soldiers also see their time in uniform permanently honored, year-round,” said retired Gen. Ann E. Dunwoody, Foundation board member and the first women to achieve the rank of four-star general. “The Registry of the American Soldier provides a way for all Soldiers to see their stories forever preserved in the nation’s future home for U.S. Army history.”

More than 117,000 Soldiers are currently entered in the Registry, which is already accessible online. Photos of Soldiers in uniform accompanying their stories are encouraged. There is no cost to submit a story. The Foundation also hosts a Registry for Army family members; Department of the Army Civilians (DAC); and other supporters of the Army; and a separate Registry for Army service animals.

To submit an entry for the Registry, visit armyhistory.org and click “Registries.”

As more and more women enjoy the outdoors, and join the military, they have to come to grips with the challenges of relieving themselves.

The Tinkle Belle is anatomically shaped to match a lady’s parts in order to prevent leakage, and long enough that she won’t pee on her shoes. However, it’s pliable shape folds into a discrete carrying case. Finally, it’s antimicrobial to avoid bad odor.
