Product description

The original, patented vest cut-away system!
MSA Paraclete designed the first ballistic vest to offer a patented, Single-Point Release System for instant vest removal. Others have tried to duplicate its simplicity, durability, and effectiveness but none have come close to MSA Paraclete’s unique and life-saving system.
The MSA Paraclete Releasable Assault Vest Body armor (RAV) is a high-mobility, comfortable vest designed for speed and stealth. When in use and fully loaded, these modular tactical vests are quickly removable with a single cut-away handle. This vest’s capabilities greatly enhance the modern soldier’s survivability while in training or combat environments.
The RAV’s innovative design accommodates a full modular system of add-on pouches and accessories. Armor components are compliant with NIJ Standard-0101.04, 2005 Interim Requirements when worn with armor. NIJ 0101.06-compliant armor is also available.

• Covered by U.S. Patent Nos. 6,769,137 and 6,948,188.
