The new Rescue Task Force RAPID Vest is designed to provide maximum flexibility in configuring a vest to your department's needs. The RAPID Vest is designed to easily adjust and fit a wide range of responders with waist sizes from 32" to 55". The rapid entry system on the vest allows responders to don the vest in seconds with minimal adjustment. The combination of light weight and ergonomic design insures the vest will not hamper movement or patient care. Fully loaded with Level IIIA front and back armor this vest weighs in at a little over 7lbs! The RAPID Vest is available with or without medical supplies and with or without armor allowing departments to customize the vest specifically to their needs.
The RTF RAPID Vest can accommodate front and back ballistic plate sizes up to 10" x 12" with protection levels from IIIA to IV. The system includes two MOLLE mount combination tourniquet & shears holders and a MOLLE mount medical pouch with "rip away" functionality so it can easily be removed from the vest for easier access to medical supplies. The large pocket behind the medical pouch can hold a variety of additional gear including triage chemlights, triage tags, or additional tourniquets. An optional mag holder insert can quickly convert this pocket to a three mag holder allowing tactical medics to carry additional magazines. For those wanting ballistic side protection the optional RTF Upgrade Module includes a cummerbund with side plate pockets as well as additional PALS for mounting other gear.
The RAPID Vest can be purchased with medical supplies or empty allowing medics to customize their vest with their own medical components. Add the optional Level IIIA hard plates to complete the system or contact us at 866-711-4843 for other levels of ballistic protection.
