Outlast® Heat Management Technology Carrier

US Armor

Our Outlast® Heat Management Technology Carrier provides a cooling effect when the officer is warm and a warming effect when the officer is cold. Using a revolutionary space technology (initially designed for use in astronaut space suits), Outlast® fabric uses Thermocules® and actively regulates the officer’s skin temperature in real time.

The Copper CuTec Carrier incorporates the skin-rejuvenating element of Copper and weaves this element into the actual fibers of the body side of the armor carrier. When this copper is present it provides unparalleled odor relief, an elimination of bacteria from perspiration and skin cells, and an unmatched relief from serious heat rashes such as Prickly Heat.

These carriers are now available for immediate purchase as a carrier option for any U.S. Armor concealable vest model.
