Does anyone have a source for IOTV cut soft armor? BALCS cut armor does not fit into the IOTV. Thanks!
Aren't you getting the cart before the horse? Or are you trying to clear a hand receipt?
I believe Armor Express offers that cut.
Got to be clearing a hand receipt or CIF. No body in their right mind wants anything IOTV related.
YUTE, are you by any chance SMR? If you're looking to clear a hand receipt, look at Ebay.
Thanks all for the input! I was just issued a Gen4 IOTV and like an idiot didn't check the panels for defects during initial issue - there is a pretty big stain of unknown origin on the front panel, so I am not sure if the kevlar is compromised. Since our armory doesn't have any spares and CIF is a 3 hour drive with a 1 month wait for appointments, I wanted to figure out my options before we hit the range in 2 weeks.
To be honest, the kevlar is *probably* fine. Given that it seems pretty difficult to get spare IOTV bits commercially, and I am not planning on gut shooting myself, I will probably wait until I can get back to CIF.
Appreciate y'all helping out!
Edit to add: the terrible things I would do for a plate carrier instead...
I am guessing the stain only affects the Gortex shell of the armor panel.
Will it be covered by your SAPI plate in use?
You are probably right - didnt realize the material was gore tex.
I'm a nasty girl pogue so I wasn't issued plates. Though plates are a lot easier to get...
