Hyper X Combines Maneuverability and Uncompromising Protection

Jacksonville, Florida – Safariland® Armor, a brand of The Safariland Group®, a leading global provider of safety products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets and one of Cadre Holdings, Inc.’s (NYSE: CDRE) (“Cadre”) key brands, announced today that it has released HyperX, a new tactical armor platform featuring in-conjunction armor design resulting in one of Safariland Armor’s lowest profile and lowest weight tactical offerings.

“Safariland prides itself on the life-saving capabilities provided by its armor platforms,” James Duncan, VP/GM of Armor for Safariland said. “HyperX is the latest innovation in tactical armor platforms, underscoring Safariland’s commitment to working with those who depend on protection from our products. In developing HyperX, Safariland worked with Fort Worth SWAT to design a tactical vest that combines protection with more reflexive freedom of movement.”

HyperX’s design is focused on high performing armor designs, combining the SX® and Hardwire® armor panel inserts with the IMPAC® P1 or C1 hard plates. HyperX provides the ultimate in lightweight, compact, and low-profile tactical armor design without compromising ballistic protection. The HyperX’s carrier platform accommodates SAPI plates (from small to extra-large), offering customizable ballistic rifle protection and mobility to meet the specific needs of individual operators.

The HyperX platform is also designed to integrate with communication systems via interior wire openings to prevent wires from tangling. Left and right detachable radio/rifle mag pockets can be positioned behind the cummerbund. Articulated and adjustable shoulders allow for enhanced mobility. Removable closure flaps allow for other closure system placards to be utilized for customized load outs. HyperX’s rear-zip-on MOLLE platforms can be removed while seated in vehicles, and the shock cord adjustable cummerbund allows for an extended range of adjustment that can be precisely placed to the operators’ preference. Combined with a range of available accessories such as  ballistic groin, spine, throat, and bicep protection, the HyperX platform offers the ultimate in scalability.

The HyperX platform comes in Black, Coyote Brown, Multicam, Navy, Ranger Green, Tactical Green, Gray and Tan.
