MXV – Ballistic Shield

United Shield International introduces it’s latest innovation in shield protection the “MXV” line of shields. These shields combine the best available features from our complete shield line with our new MXV Trapezoid Viewport.  The MXV shields combine our lightweight high- performance ballistic composite, our durable painted front, our rear “Load Out” system, and our industry leading Tri-Grip ERT handle system with the industries largest most ergonomic viewport available today

— The “MXV Trapezoid” This new viewport has an amazing 77 square inches of viewing area.  This unique design allows for unsurpassed situational awareness, providing the best peripheral vision available while also delivering unparalleled downward ground vision. The oversized Trapezoidal shape provides the necessary viewing capability for those officers “in the stack”, protected and no longer blinded by the shield.  You will not find another shield available that provides you this level of situational awareness, comfort and safety.

All MXV shields come standard with a viewport cover.
