Another Istanbul`s presented product is Plastoon ballistic protection system. It consists of integrated ballistic tactical vest with accessories. The design derives directly from eastern Ukraine conflict experiences. Quick release cummerbund, fully conceived by Rarog designers, is an integral part of the vest.
The IIIA ballistic vest serves as the core of this system. It can be augmented by additional soft panels (protecting shoulders, sides, neck and abdomen areas) and supplementary ceramic plates, which protect front, rear and sides of the user. Vest is made of Invista Cordura fabric and finished with polyamide or polypropylene (for ATAC/Multicam pattern) webbing. MOLLE system allows for additional equipment to be mounted to the vest.
