The patent-pending TacVent, invented by Sgt. Jeff Shelton, an 11-year law enforcement veteran and former supervisor of a full-time tactical unit in Los Angeles, is certainly a product of the future but lucky for all of us is available now! TacVent is the first and only body armor ventilation device, worn between your body armor and your tactical uniform, that allows for the unobstructed movement of air and release of body heat through true separation of body armor and your body.
Invented by a police officer and American-made, TacVent uses actual space, not useless matter of spongy, or meshy absorptive materials to provide constant circulation of body heat. Research and testing has shown time and again that Tacvent actually lowers body surface temperature by at least 14.5 degrees. The unique patented design which consists of a corrugated, perforated panel engineered by hypoallergenic thermoplastic elastomer, is extremely soft AND flexible. Acting as a 'cushion', not only does the TacVent allow for perfect body armor ventilation, but research has shown that the TacVent body armor profoundly minimizes blunt force trauma.
Easy attachable with velcro, the Tacvent body armor can be easily secured to all armor carriers - both front and back. And you can remove and reattach the TacVent body armor as many times as you want, knowing the panel will stay in place until you remove it.
LA Police Gear has many tactical operator customers that swear by TacVent products. TacVent is truly the only solution in body armor ventilation. Check it out today at LAPG!
