Mission dictates tactics, tactics dictate gear. We have taken this basic fighting principle to heart when developing the Blackhawk Foundation Series Chest Rig. Not every mission requires armor, but there are other mission-critical items you will need at the ready.
This chest rig holds ceramic plates up to 10.5-by-13.25 with a cross-back design and shoulder straps with closed-cell foam padding for increased comfort. S.T.R.I.K.E.® webbing allows users to attach pouches, holsters or other accessories.
The OMEGA™ Phalanx Homeland Security Vest holds everything needed in dynamic law enforcement and other operational situations. Seven sewn-on pouches hold everything from magazines to flashbangs, handcuffs, O.C. spray, a tactical light and up to 14 shotshells. A removable shotshell strip is also included. The S.T.R.I.K.E.® webbing on the back accommodates a custom loadout of additional pouches and accessories.
The S.T.R.I.K.E. Elite Vest has 24 S.T.R.I.K.E.®/MOLLE locations, allowing the user to customize the rig will a full suite of S.T.R.I.K.E.®/MOLLE compatible pouches and gear to the needs of the mission.
With input from operators in the field, we've designed the most tactically advanced loadbearing vests available. This combat-proven design offers sewn-on pouches on the front, including two large internal-zippered map pouches and three mag pouches with adjustable flaps for short and tall magazines.
