Kevlar Reinforced Garment Looks Good To Go…

The Army began issuing the kevlar reinforced garment back in June of 2011. The concept is to provide some degree of pelvic protection from improvised explosive devices and road side bombs.

Since its initial deployment in June, the garment has gone through a couple of design changes to make it more comfortable and breathable so that soldiers could and would wear them.

The project is managed by PEO Soldier – Protective Equipment headed up by Lt.Col. Frank J. Lozano.

Seneca Cayuga Industries in Seneca Falls, N.Y., has been contracted by BCB International (U.K.) to manufacture the undergarments to comply with current U.S. military regulations. The company’s textile operation employs roughly 50 people, including some disabled U.S. veterans.
