The V1 TexTropExternal Vest Carrier is designed to match your existing TexTrop™ shirt for a professional uniform look.

The external vest carrier is a cosmetic outer shell intended to house the wearer’s current vest in its original concealable carrier. The external vest carrier is designed to be worn over a uniform shirt and fits most carriers on the market today where front and rear carrier assemblies separate at the shoulder, with either hook and loop or adjustable strap mechanisms. Elbeco’s Nano Moisture Wicking technology captures and pulls fluids and perspiration away from the skin and spreads it over the fabric surface area for quick evaporation to keep you dry and comfortable.

WARNING: This cosmetic vest carrier offers no ballistic and/or stab protection.
  • This is NOT a plate carrier, but a cosmetic carrier shell for your existing vest carrier to create a professional uniform shirt look with identical fabric match to all Elbeco TexTrop™ shirt colors
  • Two fully functional pleated pockets with scalloped flaps, hook and loop closure, and pen opening in both pockets and pocket flap
  • Loose badge tab and name tape for embroidery included with each carrier
  • Box-stitched shoulder straps with mic opening
  • False button front placket to match shirt
  • Heavy-duty twill-lined interior for added durability with pouches at front and back for convenient insertion/removal of existing concealable vest carrier
  • Flexible design accommodates most vests currently on the market
  • Back-to-front hook and loop side panels for easy on/off and increased adjustability
  • Three stitched-in military creases on vest back and two on vest front
  • Single-needle detailing for tailored professional appearance
  • Melamine high impact buttons
  • Available in 17 different sizes to accommodate both male and female vest carriers

Elbeco Wins NAUMD’s 2012 UNIVATOR Award with New V1 External Vest Carrier

The North American Association of Uniform Manufacturers and Distributors (NAUMD) recently awarded Elbeco its 2012 UNIVATOR Award for product innovation, recognizing that the product helped solve a problem with ballistic vest carriers currently on the market – without compromising officer safety. The V1 offers officers the ability to wear their vest over their uniform shirt, without compromising performance or sacrificing the professional appearance they require.

Elbeco V1 TexTrop External Vest Carrier

Police work is quite complex. Police officers are expected to be physically capable as well as quick-thinking and psychologically adept. They must appear authoritative to those who challenge the law, yet non-threatening to the innocent people whom they protect. Those who outfit police officers take these unique challenges into account when designing uniform apparel, balancing performance with professional appearance. So when ballistic vests threatened to compromise this delicate balance, Elbeco created the V1 TexTrop External Vest Carrier.

Ballistic vests are, without a doubt, a necessity for law enforcement officers. Yet for some departments, the look of a ballistic vest worn over a uniform shirt can be overly tactical and somewhat threatening to members of the community. In addition, wearing a ballistic vest under a uniform shirt can feel hot and uncomfortable. Elbeco presented a completely unique spin on the vest carrier with the V1. Whereas other carriers offer a tactical, SWAT team-type look, the V1 is designed to blend in seamlessly with an officer’s uniform shirt and is available in most standard uniform shirt colors.

When designing the V1, Elbeco consulted extensively with law enforcement officers and chiefs of police, soliciting their input and feedback throughout the process. J.D. Devine, director of sales and business development for Elbeco, explains the concerns that officers expressed: “First and foremost, everyone involved wanted to be certain that officer safety was not compromised in any way. The officers wanted assurance from their protective vest manufacturers that our product would not invalidate any warranty claims.” Elbeco was able to deliver this assurance; all major vest manufacturers provided confirmation that the V1 does not invalidate warranty claims. It maintains the integrity of the strength of the vest while adding more comfortable, unobtrusive design.
