The FirstSpear NOC is the first concealable vest system that provides true flexibility and superior comfort, allowing the wearer to tailor his or her protective equipment (PPE) to a specific assignment or situation. This capability, when used in conjunction with a FirstSpear Slick or First On, gives the FirstSpear Professional User the ability to easily adjust his or her individual ballistic protection level and profile to regulate heat retention while managing weight and bulk.
With a slim fit and unique style lines the NOC has a simplified sizing scheme that eliminates all the previous sizing and sustainment challenges formerly found in traditional concealable soft armor carriers. As a by-product of the novel removable and sized side armor inserts, the NOC is a vest you can grow with. Side armor inserts can be replaced thus eliminating all ballistic gaps on the User’s side while still meeting NIJ/Mil-Spec requirements for overlap. The side soft armor can be removed for the most discreet missions.
The front panel pocket of the NOC will accept our thin Light Fighter Series of Plate as well as several different styles of impact and ballistic style protective plates. Clean edges and proportional flare in the right places provide maximum comfort and fit even when seated. The NOC will line up perfectly as a modular or “in-conjunction” component for the Slick or First On; giving you the ultimate scale up and scale down flexibility for varying ballistic threats and changing mission profiles.
Putting on the NOC is easily accomplished with two stabilizing straps that are easy to rapidly adjust, provide complete stability of the ballistic inserts and have smooth surface treatment throughout the outside, minimizing bunching and “print” when you are wearing the NOC underneath your shirt. The unique design makes the NOC the most comfortable, flexible and functional concealable soft body armor system on the market.
