Bulletproof vests are essentials for law enforcement officers and military personnel who need protection while on duty. However, in warm and humid subtropical climates, the heat and sweat generated by the body can make wearing a vest carrier uncomfortable and affect the wearer’s performance. That’s why it’s important to choose a carrier that features advanced technology to regulate body temperature and reduces sweat.
One such technology is Outlast PCM ( Phase Change Material) thermo-technology.
Outlast PCM is a temperature-regulating material that is designed to balance the body’s temperature and reduce sweat in the microclimate. It works by absorbing heat when the body is too warm and releasing it when the body is too cold, effectively regulating the body temperature.
The Outlast 3D spacer lining is a unique material that is used in the construction of bulletproof vest carriers. It is made of a three-dimensional knit structure that provides excellent breathability and moisture management. The microcapsules are incorporated into the fabric of the vest carrier, making it possible to regulate body temperature and reduce sweat level.
The benefits of using a multi-layer system featuring Outlast PCM are numerous.
Firstly, the baselayer or T-shirt featuring the temperature-regulating properties of the PCM macro capsules help to keep the wearer cool and dry, even in the most demanding environments. This reduces the risk of heat exhaustion, heat stroke, and other heat-related illnesses, which can be particularly dangerous in a high-stress situation.
Secondly, the carrier 3D spacer lining helps to improve the wearer’s comfort and mobility. By accelerating the air circulation due to its tridimensional weaving structure, the PCM 3D spacer lining keeps the body dry and reduces the friction between vest and the skin, which can cause irritation and chafing. This allows the wearer to move freely and focus on their mission, rather than being distracted by discomfort.
Finally field tests with Outlast multi-layer system ( T-Shirt + 3D spacer carrier lining ) provided excellent breathability, heat and moisture management, which helps to prevent odors and bacteria growth.
This makes the vest carrier more hygienic and easier to maintain, ensuring that is can be used for longer periods of time without needing to be washed or replaced.
In conclusion, Outlast PCM microcapsules are an excellent choice for bulletproof vest carriers in subtropical climates.
They provide a comfortable and effective solution for regulation body temperature and reducing sweat, helping to improve wearer’s performance and comfort.
By choosing vest carrier with Outlast PCM thermo-technology, you can ensure that you are protected and prepared for any mission, no matter what the conditions.
