When we designed the TYR Tactical® PICO Assaulters Plate Carrier (TYR-PICO) we wanted to incorporate all the ergonomic attributes that are needed for a true fighter’s vest. To achieve this, we needed to create a rugged platform that provides an extremely lightweight and ultra thin carrier while at the same time giving the wearer unprecedented comfort. The PICO is the end result.
The removable Assaulter Zip-on Back Panel makes this a state-of-the-art body armor system that has a multi-platform modular design. This allows the operator to change and adapt to mission sets with minimal effort and maximum efficiency.
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. This gives the PICO an extremely low profile. Its unique design allows the user to rig the PICO to meet the specific requirements of the mission. The external cummerbund provides a platform for adding PALS Adapter Panels which gives the operator the ability to switch out mission-specific gear. Antimicrobial/FR treated padded spacer mesh is used internally for comfort.
Our Plates Carriers and Tactical Vests feature the patented Integrated Ballistic Framework which increases overall structural integrity, ballistic protection, decreases side-spall and reduces back face deformation. The five piece design includes a panel suspension and energy disbursement frame.
The body facing material of our plate carriers utilize advanced antimicrobial spacer mesh which is IR/FR treated. The ventilation system incorporates a raised padding system which works with the ballistic vein for energy dispersion. It also wicks away excess moisture and provides air flow channels to better manage heat stress, increase recovery after use and allows the vest to return to its normal state after each use.
Patented Ballistic Vein®:
The design includes a patented panel suspension and energy disbursement frame know as the Ballistic Vein®. It provides a platform that retains the external carrier in the proper configuration eliminating sagging of the carrier. Additionally, it holds the soft armor panels in the proper configuration, prevents bunching, supports the plates to improve edge hit protection.
Helps absorb the impact from firearm projectiles and fragmentation. Please note that soft armor is sold separately in some cases.
Provides additional protection from rifle rounds. Plates are sold separately.
