Connections are developed for universal application. These modules can be attached to any overt ballistic vest or plate carrier. But, to ensure ideal performance we using UARM™ gear.
The module uses a stiff zipper to allow for exchanging the ballistic plates inside. This same procedure is performed after the soft armor’s expiration date.
For armor inserts, it is officially 5 years. For the module itself, there is a 1-year warranty.
The date is calculated from the manufacturing label on the back of the insert. While good maintenance and handling can preserve the plate ballistic capabilities for longer, we will only guarantee five years from manufacturing.
The rest of the module is made from extremely durable materials. Due to the tasks that you might encounter when using it the warranty is for one year. But, with good maintenance, it can last for a very long time.
Each element from the FAS™ set can be used independently and be modular with gear from any high-quality manufacturer.
The whole FAS™ Full Armor System weighs as a single steel armor plate and is perfectly distributed around the body and ergonomic. The SAM™ itself weighs less than 10 ounces and is perfectly balanced around the body.
This balance, combined with good ventilation, makes the set comfortable in any environment.
