Armor Holdings To Supply Tactical Vest To US Army

Armor Holdings Inc., Jacksonville, Fla., has received a $112 million contract to supply its Improved Outer Tactical Vest to the US Army. The new vest - which Armor Holdings’ Defense and Aerospace Group will develop and manufacture over the next two years at its Pennsylvania and Tennessee facilities - will become the standard for the Army’s integrated body armor ensemble.

“The company responded to the US Army’s effort to field test an ensemble that provides greater user comfort, more sizes and greater range of adjustment, enhanced ballistic coverage area, reduced weight and an emergency quick-release system,” said Robert Schiller, president, Armor Holdings.
