MVK Tactical Responders Firefighter Armor is crafted and designed complete solution for firefighter. The standard soft armor protection that it comes with is certified for National Institute of Justice Level III-A threats, which protects against the most common handgun threats, as required by the National Fire Protection Association NFPA 3000 'Standard for an Active Shooter/Hostile Event Response Program.'

Additionally, the 'one-size-fits-most' carrier is fully adjustable up to a 61-inch waist. Accommodating for the fiscal realities that make it challenging to equip every individual in a department, the Phalanx "one-size fits-most" design allows for ease of issue by shift or by seat when necessary.

Fire-Resistance Firefighter Clothing

Some armor carriers are constructed of a textured nylon material that melts when subjected to high temperatures. And option like the Mark-V can be designed to be fire resistant, to protect from special threats.

Ability To Upgrade

With the investment a department might make into ballistic gear, you'll want to make sure it can grow with your team in the face of future threats. Look for a carrier where you can upgrade to hard armor plates in the front and the back for increased protection against rifle ammunition.

Custom Look

Departments will likely want to steer clear of gear that makes them appear overly militarized. Look for one that blends with the bunker gear as much as possible to prevent alarming the public on standard calls.
