Survival Armor Introduces it’s United States Army Approved IOTV (Improve Outer Tactical Vest). This technically compliant vest has successfully completed the rigorous qualification process by the US Army.
The Improved Outer Tactical Vest, or IOTV, is an enhanced version of, and a replacement for, the older Outer Tactical Vest as fielded by the United States Army. The IOTV is compatible with the Deltoid and Auxillary Protector (DAP) components, E-SAPI (Enhanced Small Arms Protective Insert), Enhanced Side Ballistic Inserts (ESBI), as well as the OTV’s groin protector. The IOTV is designed to take the weight of the vest off the shoulders and move it to the lower torso. The vest is also equipped with a mesh inner cover that is designed to improve airflow inside of the armor. There is also a back pad in the lower back area of the vest, which is designed to defeat fragmentation impacts to the lower back/kidney areas. A key design feature for the IOTV is that the entire armor system is able to be released with the pull of a hidden lanyard.
