Elbeco Launches the First Smart Uniform for Law Enforcement
BodyShield™ -- The New Generation of Smart Uniform Technology
READING, PA - Smart. Secure. Battled tested. It’s the world’s first smart uniform for Law Enforcement, designed by Elbeco Inc., a leader in the manufacture and supply of professional uniforms for over a century. As the demand increases for law enforcement professionals to invest in on-body camera systems, Elbeco is excited to launch the BodyShield™ External Vest Carrier – the World’s First Smart Uniform.
It’s the third generation of its kind, now integrating a whole new generation of smart uniform technology -- now smarter with technological advancements and unique, battled-tested, durable fabric for ultimate protection. As Elbeco’s focus and commitment continues to be our customers – the Occupational Athletes – we have listened to their constructive comments, their wants and needs and to what the industry is saying. BodyShield is the solution for on-body camera surveillance systems.
Exciting NEW benefits include:
• It’s Smart. Body-worn camera systems can rely on BodyShield’s ability to be secure, on-body camera/integrated communication technology ready.
• It’s Resilient. The 600Denier Syntex Polyester fabric offers stain and liquid repellency, which maintains color through daily law enforcement deterioration.
• It’s Secure. The stealth cummerbund zippered waist closure includes a front-to-back side FastLock Closure System. Together they are designed for ease of donning and doffing, securing closure and preventing the vest from riding up or being pulled apart.
Additional NEW features include:
• Anti-microbial mesh lining with vertical opening, which is lightweight, blocks bacteria formation while minimizing odors.
• Nano Fluid Repellency technology enhances fibers at the molecular level keeping the wearer dry and comfortable while the fabric maintains its natural breathability.
• Large hidden document pocket extends the width of the chest, with zipper closure and dual pass-through to access ballistic cover.
• Zipper opening on placket with camera mount tab on front placket.
• Dual access front chest pockets, with back bellows and FastLock fasteners.
• Loose functional shoulder straps. Interior shoulder openings under straps accommodates mic clip.
• Pencil opening in both flaps; pencil compartment in left chest pocket.
• Badge tab eyelets above left chest pocket.
• Tunnel loops on inside lining accommodate VSS1 Suspension System.
• Reshaped neck opening to be wider.
• Factory certified, designed to house any body armor manufacturer’s vest in its existing concealable carrier.
• Available in 20 stock sizes.
The BodyShield Vest Carrier will be available on shelves April 2016, offered in Midnight Navy (V3114B), Black (V3110B) and Tan (V3112B).
