TacVent was designed for one reason. To solve the single biggest problem that has plagued makers and users of body armor since its inception, heat.
What makes the TacVent truly unique is that it provides crucial separation with space rather than matter. By utilizing a corrugated panel of soft, hypoalergenic elastomer, the user can now obtain a much needed 1/2″ space for proper heat ventilation. This space allows heat to escape from the torso and flow upward, and as a result, cools body surface temperatures by up to 14.5 degrees!
Another huge benefit of the TacVent is trauma attenuation as it profoundly reduces blunt-force trauma. Ballistic clay testing showed that TacVent significantly decreased the body facing cratering of the body armor when fired upon with both 9mm and .45 caliber rounds.
