FirstSpear Technology

FirstSpear Tubes

Designed for elite military
and law enforcement units

FirstSpear® Tubes™ is an extremely lightweight, low-profile closure system for armor carriers. Quiet to use and easily engage/disengage in seconds, the Tubes technology increases the user’s safety in time-critical situations. The patent pending closure system ensures cummerbund protection accessories like side plates and inflatable floatation remain in the correct position, for maximum ballistics coverage and performance.

Tubes technology also provides excellent resistance to weight-bearing loads, so that the armor carrier and attached tactical gear stay firmly in place. Constructed of high-performance polymers, Tubes are self-cleaning, and do not retain the weight or contamination of water, mud or snow.

FirstSpear 6/12™ Modular Pocket Attachment System

Up to 50% Lighter than
Conventional Carriers

AVAILABLE SOON ON SHIFT 360™, FAST ATTACK VEST AND THE ALL PURPOSE VEST.

The 6/12™ Pocket Attachment System is a load-bearing armor carrier platform that dramatically reduces the weight of traditional web-based attachment systems by 30 – 50%. Using a laminated, laser-cut design, the 6/12 modular platform allows you to attach pouches and accessories quickly and easily.

By eliminating the bulk and weight of nylon, snaps and polymer stiffener of other pocket attachment systems, the 6/12 results in a more streamlined profile, improved signature management, and better mobility. The completely modular 6/12 Pocket Attachment System is compatible with standard MOLLE pockets and FirstSpear’s ultra-lightweight 6/12 Modular Pocket Technology.

Protech Shift 360 Plate Rack System

SCALABLE MODULAR BODY ARMOR SYSTEM FROM PROTECH

The Shift 360™ plate rack armor system gives tactical teams the ability to scale protection in response to raised threat levels in a matter of seconds. Wear the Shift 360 as a basic plate rack carrier for routine missions, or add accessories to transition the carrier into a fully loaded tactical system.

The Shift 360 now offers FirstSpear Tubes closure system technology to minimize weight, lower the user’s profile, and improve ballistics coverage. Bulk and weight are further reduced by the armor carrier’s integration of the FirstSpear 6/12 Pocket Attachment System, a low-profile, webless platform for securing pouches and accessories.
