The ARK Quick Release vest is our latest design in specialized tactical protection. The ARK-QR was developed in conjunction with end user feedback and goal for maximum protection, modularity and maneuverability.

Our team developed a carrier that has exceeded expectations. Based on the SPEAR/BALCS cut, we have built a vest line that maximizes protection, functionality and wearability. This vest features our unique “Y” internal vent system for cooling along with our high-performance cooling mesh. Additional features such as upgradeable removable shoulder straps, front and rear top loading plate pockets (multi sized), split kangaroo flap, L & R mic tabs, wire routing, upgradeable MOLLE cummerbunds with pocket, etc. are part of this leading design. This vest comes standard with a QUICK RELEASE system. This system is a quick, simple and effective 4-point back release system, that provides an instant release with the pull of an ambidextrous strap and is able to be re-assembled in less that 2 minutes.
