The Ravelin Vest MKII design secures the best possible comfort and protection to the user during operations. The protective clothing consists of a vest unit covering the front, abdomen, sides, shoulders, neck and a collar functioning as connection between the clothing and a visor or a Face Mask.

Key features: 

  • The vest has a padded hip belt with a quick release buckle, which is designed to carry the main weight of the vest and accordingly reduces the weight on the shoulders
  • The backside of the vest is covered with a standoff liner, for increased ventilation and comfort
  • The lower part of the vest is designed to protect the arteries in torso and groin areas 
  • The lower part of the vest has a “butterfly” design to ensure best possible mobility, and, at the same time, protecting the arteries
  • The design allows optimum shoulder mobility without reducing the protection 
  • The ballistic inserts of the vest are easy to remove/ replace 
  • The outer cover is water resistant, made of PU-coated nylon, weight 230 g/m2 and can be washed in a washing machine at 40oC. 

The Ravelin Vest can be offered in 2 different versions: 

  • Open Back strap system, OB
