BlueStone unveils load bearing vest that holds rifle plates and keeps a uniform look
WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. — BlueStone Safety Products, a U.S. manufacturer of custom load bearing vests for LE, has revealed their new vest design that holds level 4 rifle plates while still giving the officers a uniform look. Traditional plate carrier vests typically clash with the department’s uniforms, and they cover items the officers may need to use. With BlueStone’s new style, a separate plate carrier vest is no longer needed, as the custom load bearing vests have specially designed pockets to hold level 4 rifle plates in the front and back. Each custom load bearing vest is made to the Chief’s or Sheriff’s exact specifications, giving the officers a uniform look.
These new custom load bearing vests efficiently hold the officer’s body armor vest as well as their rifle plates, giving them a uniform look with double the protection. When there is an active shooter situation, these new vest carriers make it easy for officers to slide their rifle armor plates into the vest, so they have extra rifle round protection and can still access all of their items. Being able to easily slide the armor plates into the vest helps keep them safe while on duty, and allows them to get to the scene faster to protect those in danger.
After completing a research study, the Mayo Health Clinic and University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire found that BlueStone Safety’s custom load bearing vests help improve officer's posture by reducing slouching/ rounded shoulders, and they help alleviate hip, lower back, and sciatic pain. These high quality LBVs are backed by a 2 year warranty for stitching and craftsmanship, and are built to last much longer than the competition. BlueStone load bearing vests are custom made to each officer’s specifications and needs, and allows them to choose the pouch locations for their handcuffs, magazines, flashlights, etc.
