The MSV-GEN II is one of the latest protective systems released by the Army and only produced under the KDH brand. The MSV was developed by the Army over a multiyear development program. The MSV was chosen by soldiers and offers significant improvements over their current IOTV system. The MSV-GEN II offers enhanced protection and maneuverability at a significantly reduced weight.

AS A TRULY “MODULAR” VEST, The Army MSV-GEN II includes both Tactical and Concealable Vest components. It can be worn over the soldier’s uniform and features Concealable Components inserted into the Tactical Carrier. The Concealable Components contain the soft ballistic panels for the MSV-GEN II and can be removed from the Tactical Carrier and worn separately as a complete Concealable Vest. This vest system can be easily transformed to a Tactical or Concealable carrier depending on mission requirements.
