CMC Government Supply Features New Body Armor Products from Armor Express

Armor Express is known for its dedication to saving lives by providing body armor products that provide superior protection, comfort, and wearability. CMC Government Supply is featuring their latest products for 2015.

The Raven Tactical Carrier was designed with tactical operators in mind. Featuring Trilogrid laser cut outer webbing and an aggressive structure, this vest is a fully customizable tactical carrier solution. It has ambidextrous knife sleeves, utility ports on the shoulder pads and the front of the carrier, and a 3D spacer mesh inner lining for air channeling and heat reduction.  Other features include a Kangaroo utility pouch for documents and equipment, adjustable cummerbund that can accommodate soft armor inserts, and bottom loading rifle plate pockets on the front and rear.

Also new for 2015 are the Rapid Base and Responder Base Plate Carriers. The Rapid Base is easy to put on and has adjustable shoulder straps and side straps. The MOLLE webbing platform on the front and back allows for the addition of pouches to carry magazines, flashlights, tourniquets, IFAK and more.  The plate pockets accommodate NIJ III and IV hard armor plates, capable of stopping center fire rifle rounds.  Placed over soft lower level duty armor, it is an affordable and effective tool for any active shooter scenario.

There are many reasons shopping for “Made in America” products is the right choice when selecting the perfect gift for family and friends.
