The world is full of a$$holes, and once in a while one of them tries to kill you. Grey Ghost Gear wants to help you prepare for that possibility – they want to armor you against the a$$holes…
To do that they’ve partnered up with one of the best composite companies in the world to build affordable armor plates for responsible citizens. They’re going to have 3 models, initially, with protection levels of III, III + and IV. They will all be NIJ certified and very lightweight (some as light as 1 lb). They will also be affordable – starting at $200.
The new plates use cutting edge technology only recently developed while building armor for a specialized maritime unit. A very limited number of them are labeled appropriately with “Front Towards A$$hole” – the rest will be simply badged with the Grey Ghost Gear logo.
What makes this a big deal is that the Cratus™ 3600SA (NIJ Model #D1652) is the lightest, stand-alone, NIJ 0101.06 Level III Certified hard body armor plate in the body armor industry.
TenCate Advanced Armor USA combined their extensive knowledge of high-pressure manufacturing with advancements in unidirectional polyethylene materials to engineer and produce a family of plates that are 35% lighter than its predecessors.
The TenCate Cratus™ 3600SA utilizes a hybrid design of DSM Dyneema Force Multiplier Technology in combination with trauma reduction materials. A 10”x12” Shooters (SH) Cut torso plate weighs only 2.20 pounds and 6” x 6” Full- Size (FS) Cut side plates weigh 0.80 pounds. The reduction in weight has not compromised protection level because the TenCate Cratus™ 3600SA has been tested against both the 7.62mm x 51mm FMJ (M80) and the 7.62mm x 39mm PS Ball (MSC).
SIERRA-313 have reworked the famous short-brimmed, “recce”-style bush hats worn by UK and South African Special Forces, and come up with a unique and improved design of their own.
The SIERRA-313 Recce Boonie features a preformed short brim, a cloth foliage loop that goes all around the hat, 2 ventilation eyelets on each side, a patch of loop fastener for affixing “cat eyes”, a map/ID pocket inside the crown.
