the H3 but with less frills and a lower profile. The PT is adjustable in both
the shoulders and waist. The vest also features the Dynamic Cummerbund System,
increasing the efficiency of the wearer’s breathing and movement. Its shoulder
strap geometry provides enhanced ergonomics and communication channeling. The
PT is also designed to fit BRAVO armor panels.
- Traverse – can convert LEGACY or BRAVO
concealable soft armor into a front zip-side opening system. This overt carrier
offers both MOLLE and Dress configurations, along with optional features to
meet departmental requirements. It is available in the traditional LEGACY or
new BRAVO cut. Internal plate pockets accommodate inserts for added protection.
Front and rear hard armor plate pockets accommodate rifle plate protection.
- Laser Cut Plate Carrier (LCPC) – focuses on simplicity and high speed
and is designed to fit most hard armor plates and soft ballistic plate backers.
Whether the task force needs certified ICW or Lo Vis special threat hard armor,
the LCPC ASR will fit their requirements. The carrier gives the operator a
lightweight laser cut platform made with today’s newest and strongest

AE’s custom BRAVO panels.
- Busch PROtective AMP-1 TP Helmet by
Armor Express –
designed for close quarter combat threats and is made of a multi-layer aramid
composite and patented production technique for elite ballistic performance.

fragmentation protection and is certified to the international VPAM-3, as well
