Point Blank is the most widely recognized brand of physique armor in the world. The straps suspend the ballistic panels, not the carrier that holds the ballistic panels. However, the Alpha Elite Series has a new, more comfy, reduced profile way to access the shoulder straps to armor connection. Other officers undo both side straps and 1 of the shoulder straps and remove the armor and carrier like a buttoned shirt—yes, to steer clear of dragging the armor more than their face and hair. Nevertheless, a single main location of comfort and wearability has remained pretty much ignored—the oft-overlooked carrier.
