The ATPC-SPEAR System is the culmination of 4 years of research and development with the U.S. Air Force – Special Operations Command (AFSOC). The ballistic shape used in the ATPC-SPEAR is based on the U.S. Special Operations SPEAR shaped ballistic panels. The SPEAR ballistic shape is a battle proven design that combines ballistic coverage and operator mobility, which are two phrases that normally oppose one another.
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™ allows the weight of the vest to be moved from the shoulders to the hips similar to that of an alpine backpack. By using a padded MOLLE belt coupled with a semi-rigid spinal insert the CORELOAD™ distributes the weight of the vest affording the operator the sense of carrying a lesser load. The CORELOAD™ is the analogous solution to the question “which one is heavier, a pound of lead or a pound of foam?” One feels heavier than the other due to its concentrated surface area. With CORELOAD™, the overall weight of a tac vest is spread out across the strongest parts of the musculature thus creating a faster operating vest that fights fatigue while giving superb ballistic coverage.
