Modular Body Armor Vest

This article will focus on various aspects of MOLLE vests, or Modular, Lightweight, Load-carrying Equipment. Modular body armor vests are some of this MOLLE equipment. These vests often use ceramic ballistic plates as well as steel ballistic plates to do the brunt of the work in protecting a person wearing them.

What does it mean to be modular? If you say the vest or equipment is “modular,” this simply means that it is constructed in compartments, able to work flexibly and has different “modes” of utility. The fact that the equipment is supposed to be lightweight is part of that modularity, because it allows for more mobility and easier wear. Load-carrying potential means that wearers can bring tools, weapons, and other gadgets with them, which will enhance their mission skills. Most frequently, people wearing MOLLE gear are going into high-danger zones where there will be ballistics fired, thus making a ceramic ballistic plate in a vest necessary in the first place. This is equipment, as well, meaning that it is intended to be used properly, to be used as a tool, in order to effect a change or to accomplish a mission that would not be accomplished well without that equipment.

Modular vests are often worn by the military. The fully uniform of a U.S. military member is very much a MOLLE uniform, using that technology for the protection and ability of the soldiers. The system's modularity more specifically comes from the use of PALS webbing, which are just rows of heavy-duty nylon stitched onto the vest, which then allow for various MOLLE-compatible pouches and accessories to be applied. This method of attachment has become the basic standard for modular tactical gear, as opposed to other ways of doing this in the past.

Modular vests with ceramic ballistic plates for protection will allow wearers the ease of knowing that they are safe, even amid bullet fire, at least to some degree. Some manufacturers of the vest liken the MOLLE gear to keeping a gun in your house. You may not use guns, and you may not be a fan of violence, but if you need a gun to protect yourself and you find you don’t have one, you won’t necessarily have a second chance to go out and get one to take proactive protection of yourself. You may need to keep a bullet proof vest in order to ensure that you stick around long enough to be relieved that you purchased it and kept it.
