Outer Carrier System - Unified Violent Incident Response - UVIR


Our passion for protecting the protectors has led to the creation of the OCS-UVIR. Built with the end user input, it is the first Fire and EMS-specific carrier to address a full torso wrap of body armor for an individual issue application with consideration of comfort, mobility and ballistic performance. The OCS-UVIR is a scalable vest system designed to protect your personnel while conducting triage and exacting the victims of an Active Shooter or Multiple Casualty Incident.

The OCS-UVIR includes an innovative carry pouch on the back. Designed for non-rigid litters, hypothermia prevention kits or extraction straps. The pouch expands 10” wide x 10” high x 4” deep and stows flat against the back.
