USMC Improved Modular Tactical Vest (IMTV)

The USMC Improved Modular Tactical Vest (IMTV) is the new U.S. Marine Corps vest system. It consists of a cummerbund style main vest with groin, lower back and neck/throat protection. The system is designed to allow the Marine to scale the system up or down dependent upon mission requirements. The IMTV is a 2-point cut away system, with fully integrated side protection, communication routing channels, and increased MOLLE attachment points. In addition to more efficient weight distribution, the IMTV provides increased protection to the lateral torso, with less exposed area on the side and under the arms. Additional options include a removable collar that is 1/2 the bulk of the older collars, throat protection, removable side plate pockets and a removable rifle bolster.
