November 2012 – Reading, PA - Elbeco continues its tradition of uniform innovation with two new products, joining the V1 External Vest Carrier and broadening the V Series product line.
JD Devine, Elbeco Director of Sales, “Elbeco is excited to introduce these new products, expanding our award winning V Series product line. We look forward to meeting officers’ uniform needs while exceeding their expectations regarding, function, comfort AND professional appearance.”
UV1 Undervest Shirt
The UV1 Undervest Shirt is designed to compliment Elbeco’s V Series External Vest Carriers, offering the seamless professional look of a uniform shirt with the comfort of a polo. The visible portions of the shirt offer an exact match to the look and fabric of a Class A shirt and coordinating external vest carrier, while hidden sections feature “featherweight” UfxTM performance knit fabric for ultimate comfort. The UV1’s Nano-Moisture Wicking and Antimicrobial fabric technology keep wearer cool and eliminate bacteria that cause odor over time while mesh underarm flex-vents offer additional ventilation.
VSS1 Suspension System
The VSS1 Suspension System has been designed to work with the V1 External Vest Carrier to help redirect the weight of an officer’s duty belt and thereby minimizing discomfort and symptoms associated with lower back, knee and foot pain, hip bruising, and leg numbness/tingling.
The patent pending VSS1 uses an innovative quick-clip system to allow for easy donning and doffing, offering free-floating straps that glide through tunnels in the vest carrier, allowing the wearer full range of motion and requires no modification to existing trousers, duty belt or vest.
Test users comments included;
“I love how the system makes my duty belt disappear. It feels like it isn’t there. The weight is gone.”
“It’s so simple, not complicated, and easy-to-use. You’re in and out!”
