TYR Tactical – Female EPIC Non-Cutaway System

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

In 2013 TYR Tactical began developing a female specific tactical carrier system. The first step was to gather both measurement and movement data for female users.


PROPER COVERAGE
• Protection of vital organs and breast tissue.
• Solution: Female shape body armor that has additional coverage around the breast tissue.


BASIC SHAPE
• Focus on female anatomy driven by the need support and stability.
• Solution: Shape carrier and ballistics to have an inset/cut-in above the breast tissue to accommodate shoulder rotation, female anatomy and allow for shouldering weapon.


PLATE LOCATION
• Current female systems lacked the ability to provide proper plate placement. The placement of the plate
did not lay flat on the torso of female participants. It would lay at an angle, applying pressure to the breast tissue area. This ultimately took away from the ballistic performance of the plate and soft armor.
• Solution: The front of the female carrier incorporates a gusseted plate pocket. This pocket relieves tension and pressure that is normally placed on the body from the hard plate in typical plate pocket configurations. This enhances the users range of motion to allow for increased ergonomics and performance. It also provides decreased hot spots on the body by utilizing our airflow chamber technology.

LOAD CARRIAGE
• In the past, load carriage has typically been static and designed in a vertical alignment which does not self-adjust with the operator’s natural movements.
• Solution: Female shaped components such as the shoulders, yoke, collar and belt were created to enhance the overall female system.


Introducing the TYR Tactical Female EPIC Non- Cutaway System (TYR-F-EPIC-NC). It was designed to ensure proper area of coverage while enhancing the users range of motion. This both increases the ergonomics and performance of the carrier.


The Female EPIC Non-Cutaway also incorporates our Patent Pending Female Shape. Two lateral darts contour around the females natural shape while still providing a full range of motion, support and eliminates excess compression on the breast tissue.


It’s engineered utilizing TYR’s revolutionary PV material which offers significant weight reduction with increased resistance to abrasion. PVhas been tested to have 7-10 times higher abrasion resistance than standard mil spec nylon. PV also enhances the ballistic attributes of armor within the vest. Antimicrobial/FR treated padded spacer mesh is used internally for comfort.

Features:
• Patent Pending Female Shape
• PALS webbing for MOLLE attachment
• Hydration/Communication Tabs for routing
• Attachment points for a 2-Wire Cutaway Cummerbund (Sold Separately)
• EPIC™ Low Profile Shoulders
• Our Patented Ballistic Vein Increases Load Carriage Performance, Provides A Rigid Platform, Reduces Fatigue, Stabilizes & Enhances Soft Armor Inserts
• Reinforced Drag Handle
• Removable Assaulters Zip-On Back Panel
• Semi-Rigid Exterior MOLLE Cummerbund
• Repair Buckle Kit

The both also use TYR’s PV material which offers significant weight reduction with increased resistance to abrasion.

TYR Tactical PICO-DS Assaulters Plate Carrier

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

Earlier this week, I attended the TYR Tactical Innovate Or Die Tour at the DuPont plant near Richmond, Virginia. One of the products I got a chance to check the out was the new PICO-DS Assaulters Plate Carrier. One look at it and it made me think of the old Diamondback Tactical Fast Attack Plate Carrier. Of course, the PICO-DS has been greatly updated from that old, simple design.

The TYR Tactical PICO-DS Assaulters Plate Carrier is lightweight, configurable and scalable  Made from TYR’s PV, which is durable and also enhances the ballistic attributes of armor within the vest. A very nice feature is the internal, padded, areas of the PICO-DS which are constructed with 4-way stretch tweave for additional freedom of movement and comfort. 

This plate carrier utilizes a five piece design called the Integrated Ballistic System that increases ballistic protection, decreases side spall and reduces back face deformation.

FEATURES:
• PALS Webbing for MOLLE Attachment
• Features the Swift Clip system for integrating chest racks and other accessories
• The circumference of the New Mesh Base Cummerbund incorporates poly mesh which quickens dry time in both arid and humid climates. It also allows excess heat to vent, further decreasing dry time. It also has two rows of MOLLE/PALS webbing to attach pouches.
• Removable MOLLE Front Flap with MOLLE/PALS webbing to attach mission specific pouches
• NEW 1.5” Low Profile Shoulder Pads with easy front to back overlapping adjustment
• Ballistic Vein™ increases load carriage performance, provides a rigid platform, reduces fatigue, stabilizes and enhances soft armor inserts.
• Certified T52/SP Soft Armor Level II NIJ0101.06 Specifications

Optional Accessories:
• 3 Row Mesh Cummerbund
• Side Buckle Kit
• Happy Mag Front Mag
• Front Ballistic Lower Ab
• Front Low Ab General Purpose Pouch
• Side Wing Mag Pouches
• Side Wing Radio Pouches

Carrier size relates to the size of the plates:
Small: 9.75″x12” Plate Pocket
Medium: 10.5″x12.75” Plate Pocket
Large: 11.25″x13.5” Plate Pocket
XLarge: 11.75″x14.65” Plate Pocket

Available in two different styles depending on the profile (thickness) of your plate.
PICO 4 will hold the Morgan Level III plate (.75” thick)
PICO 6 will hold TYR-HA3/7 plate styles (.5” thick)

Huron Hot Weather Short Brim Boonie

Friday, July 1st, 2016

TYR Tactical dropped this surprise on me last night. I really like the narrower brim. The Huron™ Hot Weather Short Brim Boonie Hat is a new spin on a 40 year old design. They constructed the 2” brim and top of the hat with newly developed 3.6oz 100% ripstop nylon which gives it strength, comfort and reduces the overall weight. The circumference of the MultiCam® boonie is made with poly mesh which quickens dry time in both arid and humid climates. It also allows excess heat to vent, further decreasing dry time. They went with 1” elastic webbing around the outside of the Boonie instead of the tradition nylon webbing. This ensures a secure fit of any foliage which may be used in conjunction with the hat.

Additional Features:
• Wt. 3.00 oz.
• 2” Brim
• Construction with 3.6oz 100% ripstop nylon and 1” elastic webbing
• Draw string with loop lock adjustment
• Compact and ultra-lightweight
