KDH’s New ATPC-SPEAR System is the culmination of 4 years of research and development with the US Air Force – Special Operations Command. The ballistic shape used in the ATPC-SPEAR is based on the US Special Operations SPEAR shaped ballistic panels. The SPEAR ballistic shape is a battle proven design that balances maximum coverage with operator mobility. In addition to the many standard features of the ATPC-SPEAR it can also be used with the KDH CORELOAD™ weight reduction system. The CORELOAD™ system allows the weight of the vest to be moved from the shoulders to the hips similar to that of an alpine backpack.

• Emergency cable
