Federal Tactical Outer Carrier (FTOC)

The FTOC offers a new, innovative approach to body armor design. This highly scalable, side-opening carrier allows tactical units the flexibility to configure the body armor system to meet mission specific needs. This includes the capability to reduce from higher to lower levels of protection, while enhancing mobility, agility and substantially improved range of motion for the wearer.
