STEALTH. ADJUSTABILITY. ADDED PROTECTION.
In recent years tactical teams have shown a shift in preference towards plate rack systems that are lower profile and weigh less than traditional full-coverage tactical vests. And, while operators such as special ops, SWAT, and patrol have desired carriers that allow greater maneuverability, agencies are not about to compromise on protection for their teams.
The PROTECH® Tactical TAC AR™ (Assault Rack) is a plate rack system that is not only low-profile, it features extra protection for law enforcement professionals involved in combat operations. In addition, the TAC AR has a variety of built-in options to provide adjustability and more stealth configurations.
Purpose-built for first responders, the TAC AR has internal bottom-loading front and back plate pockets designed specifically to hold multi-sized type III or type IV hard armor plates. The plate rack system is easily donned over patrol wear, and can be adjusted quickly to fit officers of varying sizes. Adjustable shoulder straps, an internal waist strap and external cummerbund help to create a proper fit. The external cummerbund features a dual side closure to accommodate pouch configurations, as well as 6”x6” mini side plates for additional protection. For an even stealthier configuration, users can remove the external cummerbund and utilize the low-profile buckle strap closure system.
The TAC AR tactical carrier is available in Advanced Webless System (AWS) and Traditional Modular Webbing (TMW) configurations. AWS reduces overall load-bearing by approximately 20%, as it has no sewn-on nylon loops. The system enables operators to customize their gear by attaching PROTECH pouches and other accessories to the laser-cut slits in the material. The TMW platform is available for those who prefer a more traditional load-bearing system for attachment points required in the field. Optional side and upper arm protection can be added—unlike most plate rack assemblies on the market—which only offer basic front and back plate pockets. The PROTECH® Tactical TAC AR™ takes the traditional plate rack system to the next level with its adjustability, stealth configuration and extra protection.
