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 Patented PV® material which offers significant weight reduction with increased resistance to abrasion. Patented PV® has been tested to have 7-10 times higher abrasion resistance than standard mil spec nylon. Patented 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.
This plate carrier utilizes a five piece design called the Patent Pending Integrated Ballistic System that increases ballistic protection, decreases side spall and reduces back face deformation. Please note that hard plates are sold separately.
