Outer Carrier System – UVIR for FIRE/EMS

Our passion for protecting the protectors has led to the creation of the Outer Carrier System – UVIR. Built upon end user input, it is the first Fire and EMS specific carrier to address the need for full torso body armor protection. The factors of comfort, mobility, and ballistic protection were all heavily considered in the design of the OCS – UVIR. The OCS – UVIR is a scalable vest system designed to protect your personnel while conducting triage and extracting the victims of an Active Shooter or Multiple Causality Incident.

The OCS-UVIR consists of:

  • Ballistic Panels: Concealable Armor shape offering more body coverage, width, length, and sides. Level II or IIIA rated Quad Tested Armor, to protect the vulnerable oblique area of the body. Design facilitates safe and effective wearing of an individual issue ballistic vest

Quickly adding rifle protection plates via the external front and rear plate pockets will increase the protection level.
