The TYR Tactical® Male & Female Enhanced PICO Integrated Carrier – EPIC™ is a lightweight, 4-wire cutaway system. EPIC™ incorporates a Front Plate Soft Ballistic Ridge™ which wraps around the plate. This provides an additional 1” of vertical ballistic protection around the top and bottom of the plate, protecting the end user from side spall created by plate fragmentation. The Female EPIC™ also incorporates our patent pending female shape. Two lateral darts contour around the females natural shape while still providing a full range of motion, support and eliminates excess compression on the breast tissue. It’s engineered utilizing our revolutionary PV® material which offers significant weight reduction with increased resistance to abrasion. PV® has been tested to have 7-10 times higher abrasion resistance than standard mil spec nylon. PV® also enhances the ballistic attributes of armor within the vest. Antimicrobial/FR treated padded spacer mesh is used internally for comfort.
