Shield provides transparent view eliminating blind spotsCost-effective, lightweight plate stops threatening M855/SS1109 green tip rounds

Safariland Protech_Hi Viz Shield_Back (002)ONTARIO, California – The Safariland Group, a leading global provider of safety and survivability products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, today announced two new Safariland hard armor products – the PROTECH® Tactical Hi-Viz Shield – a clear type IIIA shield offering see-through visibility for the officer – and a 1.2” thin PROTECH DT206C stand-alone type III hard armor plate for stopping the most prevalent rifle rounds on the market.

“We’re continually working to offer innovative and essential products for law enforcement professionals, said Todd Mackler, vice president hard armor for Safariland. The Hi-Viz Shield offers life-saving ballistic coverage by providing maximum visibility, critical when approaching blind spots such as vehicle windows, doors and searching attics. The DT206C plate offers thinness in a price-competitive product and has the capacity to stop M855 Green Tip rounds, which many type III plates can’t stop.”

Safariland’s Hi-Viz Shield models are made of a polycarbonate composite for clear visibility and allow officers to see threats from a wide perspective vs. a small viewport. NIJ 0108.01 compliant, the Hi-Viz Shield provides ballistic coverage for the critical head, neck and upper chest area and stops 9mm and .44 Magnum LSWCGC rounds for five impacts. The design features a corner radius and is equipped with ambidextrous horizontal grips. When light is needed, it can accept an optional Foxfury® Taker R40 Riot Shield Light sold by Safariland.

The Hi-Viz Shield is offered in three sizes/cuts: 1224, 1224T (both 12” x 24” at a MSRP of $1,100 each) and 924 (9” x 24” at a MSRP of $950) and is available February. MSRP and availability for the Foxfury Taker R40 Riot Shield Light will also be February.

The DT206C plate is a high-performing, lightweight, type III stand-alone plate, effective even against the increasingly common M855 Green Tip (SS109) round. Competitively priced, the DT206C plate is made from a ceramic/PE composite, has a multi-curve design and is just 1.2” thin. A NIJ 0101.06 type III certified plate, the DT206C can defeat six rounds of the most prevalent ammunition on the market including the M80, MSC, M193 and the M855 Green Tip (SS1109). It comes in a variety of sizes which include:

– 8.75” x 11.75” SAPI Small (MSRP: $520)

ONTARIO, California – Bianchi®, a brand of The Safariland Group, a leading global provider of safety and survivability products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, announced today the release of the Model 4585 Prevader™ Concealment Holster. This ballistic weave model features the exclusive Pinch® Retention Device (PRD™) which secures the holstered firearm by gripping both sides of the trigger guard when the gun is fully seated.

“By incorporating Bianchi’s PRD retention, this model offers a super slim holster body and added security with an instinctive draw,” said James Dawson, category director. “The growing concealed carry market with the demand for quality yet cost-effective holsters with retention capabilities led us to expand upon our hugely popular ballistic weave Evader™ model. The new Prevader holster does just that.”

The Bianchi Prevader holster features a low profile making it highly concealable and comfortable for everyday carry. The internal Pinch Retention Device is formed of a durable high-tech polymer and allows the user to feel when the handgun is fully seated in the holster. The Prevader holster rides high and close to the body for comfort and the open top design has a reinforced opening, making one-handed reholstering easy and efficient.

The Prevader model features a durable trilaminate construction of a 1050-denier ballistic weave exterior, a closed-cell foam center and a nylon lining for a smooth draw. The closed-cell foam allows the holster shape to “set” in the holster providing a confident fit for a variety of pistols. Once the firearm is removed for a day, the holster resumes its natural shape, allowing for a good fit with a different handgun model. The holster attaches to a belt with dual snaps for easy on/off access and fits up to 1.75 in. (45mm) belt widths. The Prevader is offered in three sizes to fit a variety of Glock and S&W M&P models, as well as the Colt Commander, Ruger SR9/SR40 and the FN FNS 9mm, .40.
