ENFORCE TAC 2018: Low Visibility, Low Profile

Direct Action introduces new plate carriers

A slick, low visibility, low profile, yet durable plate carrier designed to be used either under a jacket or as an outer ballistic vest. Being a light platform, with limited modularity, featuring a fully elastic cummberbund with two carbine mag pouches and one radio pocket on each side, as well as a front flap with three elastic pouches for carbine/SMG/pistol mags, Direct Action’s HELLCAT low vis plate carrier, is made of proprietary laminate, Cordura 5000 and 210 nylon fabric.

Direct Action is a project born from combining great design and manufacturing capabilities with an up-close-and-personal understanding of the specific end-user needs of special operations forces. This combination has created the approach of an individual-as-a-system that is open and flexible with all necessary options, yet remains streamlined and avoids over-burdening. Each part of the system interfaces with the other components: weapons, load bearing equipment, backpacks, jackets, duty uniforms and even camouflage pattern – each of these is a part of a whole, and a key component that’s critical to mission success.

When creating Direct Action every detail was rigorously thought-out from this systemic perspective – no random choices, no compromises, no “same-old-stuff” design approach, no shying away from new technology – and all based on the firsthand, real world experience of elite special operations units.

The company confirmed to S&SI that their products are in use by GROM and specialised users in almost all European countries.
