MRAPS®-IV

MRAPS®-IV (Mobile Rifle Armor Protective Shield)

Advanced proprietary SiC ceramic faced polyethylene armor composite matrix combined with battle ready shock-absorbing support hardware – engineered using the world’s lightest and toughest materials:  Carbon fiber, Aluminum, Kevlar, and advanced heat-treated metal alloy.

Designed to be worn!  Baker Ballistics patented Bungee/Quick Release carry system allows the MRAPS®-IV to be suspended off both shoulders “hands-free” for elimination of user fatigue and ease of weapon manipulation.  Optional, The Reaper™, exoskeleton weightless support system allows for long term comfortable wear and exceptional mobility for lipping doors and corners during high speed tactical operations.
